LG 32GK650F

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.
