High refresh rate, low latency display at an excellent price, with loads of gamer-centric features.
Unlike LG’s 27BK550Y, the 32GK650F is way more suited to the needs and desires of the modern video game enthusiast, for not much more money. For starters, it has a high 144Hz refresh rate and FreeSync support, plus a 1ms response time. Those two features combined mean even the most demanding gamer will hardly ever see motion blur or dropped frames.
There’s also a few gamercentric features on the 32GK650F, like “black stabiliser mode” that brightens up dark areas in games with the intention of making it easier to see your enemies hiding in the shadows, and a crosshair overlay that is placed dead in the middle of the display, regardless of what’s on it, so you always get the 360 mid-air no-scope headshot.
A resolution of 2560x1440 at 31.5-inches makes for a half decent general use monitor too. Colour gamut is nothing to write home about at 99%. Unlike some cheaper gaming monitors, the 32GK650F is nice enough to include a blue light filter, to protect your eyes from the unnatural blues most monitors emit.
While the 32GK650F isn’t stunning, its ultra-narrow bezel and matte black stand will fit in to any décor. No flashy RGB light setups or room illumination here. Compared to some of the other the top stylings from other brands, LG’s restraint here is refreshing.
LG’s 32GK650F manages 144Hz refresh rates with FreeSync, 1ms response, QHD resolution and adequate image quality in a tasteful package for only $599, making it a very solid purchase.
