LG UltraGear 32GP850-B gaming monitor review

The new LG UltraGear 32GP850-B gaming monitor is designed to strike a perfect balance between frame rate, performance and graphic details. A faster screen with a higher refresh rate. Panels with more pixels. And displays that span more inches. But as an all-round paper game proposition, LG’s latest product looks very compelling.

The basic formula involves a 32-inch fast IPS panel with a response time of 1 millisecond, a refresh rate of 180 Hz, and a pixel size of 2,560 x 1,440. Recently, there has been a lot of noise around high-refresh 4K games, including new generation game consoles from Microsoft and Sony. But the combination of LG UltraGear’s 32GP850-B 1440p and 180Hz is almost certainly more suitable for most PC gamers.
