LG Rolls Out the 32UN650-W 4K UHD Monitor

LG today rolled out the 32UN650-W, a 31.5-inch monitor targeted general use, including gaming. Based on an LG Display IPS panel, the monitor offers 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution, 95% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, 1.07 billion colors (10 bpc), and HDR10. On the gaming side of things, you get AMD FreeSync support, a black stabilizing function, and dynamic action sync. For use in long hours, the monitor offers blue light reduction, and flicker-free brightness adjustment. Other vital panel specs include 5 ms (GTG) response time, 178°/178° viewing angles, 350 cd/m² maximum brightness, 1000:1 static contrast ratio. The monitor takes in DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI connectors. 5 W stereo speakers make for the rest of it. Availability is slated for the last week of August, 2020.

350 cd/m² is the typical brightness, NOT maximum.
It also offers the same resolution 3840 x 2160 @60Hz over HDMI as well as DP.

This came close to what I've been waiting for, but 60Hz and HDR 400 are the deal breakers.

How is that close? This is a <$1,000 part, 4k+144Hz+HDR600/1000 costs more than double that. It's also almost as rare as hen's teeth.

Perfectly adequate, but 4K 60Hz is such a yawnfest in 2020. Come on 144Hz, where the hell are ya?! The Acer XB323QK is due soon, but I expect the price tag to be very high on that, with the only real addition over this LG to be the 144Hz, so if it ends up at $1500 as I suspect, very poor value.

Funny, nothing in the article said 60hz. It would be an instant buy if it was 120hz or more and hdmi 2.1.

It would probably be twice expensive as well.

When didn't people fall for bigger numbers?
Give them a triple whopper and they'll think eating a double one is being moderate :D

No doubt high refresh (and proper HDR support) is nicer. But it's a high-end feature for a few more years, there's no point complaining about lack of support for each mainstream monitor that hits the market till then.

Once you have used 120+Hz even on Windows UI, and browsing the web, its hard to go back.

Looks like we have the forum equivalent of a mall cop here. Please keep your pointy finger away from people that want more than you do. It does you no harm, and your quite free to go away and leave us to moaning about why a brand new $600 monitor does exactly the same as last years model, and the years before that model, and the year before that...

If nobody ever complained about anything, or had higher expectations, then we would still be living in mud huts. Maybe that is for you, but that's damned well not for me, and I will expect more, and I will demand more, then I will happily pay for it, because that's how modern life is, for most of us anyway.

This one doesn't pique my interest, but I'm just glad the curve panel fad is over.

You have completely missed my point. You want a high-refresh monitor, get a high-refresh monitor, by all means. But why complain about the lack of high-refresh on mainstream monitors? It makes about as much sense as complaining the new Corolla doesn't have a Ferrari engine.

No, but I usually keep a monitor for 4 years and if I buy a new GPU in a few months that does support even 4k at 90Hz, I want my new monitor to do it too obviously ... otherwise the waiting for a new monitor continues.

It's not like the panels don't exist, you can get TVs (and even at semi-sensible prices, including smaller (43") sizes) that take in 4k/120 and even have 120Hz panels.

These things (monitors, TVs and the cards to suppport them) need to converge. That will likely start happening over the next 6 months, in the interim we are being milked by these half-way house products at overly-inflated prices and the "higher end" stuff at silly prices.

Situation normal. :) Sensible pricing almost always means waiting.

It's not ideal for FPS or some competitive games, but otherwise you can play anything, no problem.

lol like what were people using before we have screens that could do more than 60hz?

Were people not playing games the last 20 years.

That original statement by robert is kinda silly.

Tbh 60Hz on a CRT was pretty painful. But it didn't stop people from playing.

I thought display port was better than HDMI?

Maybe you can help me... What do I need to wall-mount this monitor. And, what is the best multi-display HDMI hub for controlling four of these as separate screens or one stretched image?

I had one of these (4K IPS 60 Hz 32) 3 years ago. I gave up on sane 4K 120 or 144Hz panels and gotr a 32QC from Gigabyte.

Yup, 2021 and still no 144Hz 32" 4K... utterly ridiculous. Acer released the XB321 back in 2015, which is still the only 32" IPS 4K monitor with G-Sync.
