LG is preparing to release the 32UL750-W 31.5-inch FreeSync gaming monitor.

This one is certified for VESA DisplayHDR 600, which requires a minimum of 600 cd/m2 in both small patches for highlights (at least 10% of the screen) as well as full-screen for brief periods to convey the sharp brightness during scenes of explosions. The panel also must produce 350 cd/m2 across the whole panel for long periods of time. It is VESA’s second-highest DisplayHDR certification behind DisplayHDR 1000 (excluding the True Black variants, which add low-brightness performance to the criteria).

In terms of its other features: it is built around a VA panel that has a 4K (3840 x 2160) native resolution. The monitor can accept inputs over 2x HDMI, DisplayPort, or USB-C. Its color gamut is listed as 95% DCI-P3. It is only capable of a 60Hz refresh rate, which may or may not be something that people care about. Personally, I value higher refresh rates, although that’s mostly for typical 2D things, like moving my mouse and simple UI animations. Above 60 FPS is less noticeable for me in busy scenes, like most first-person shooters, although it does add a bit to the experience.

The LG 32UL750-W is currently on pre-order for an MSRP of $749.99. B&H Photo has it listed for $746.99. As far as I know, neither LG nor B&H Photo lists when these pre-orders will ship. Anandtech says that the monitor is already shipping in Japan, however.

Actually the LCD technology is pretty limited in terms of response time but if you believe liquid crystal could move at light speed... L O L

I guess LOL'ing at your comment is much more approriate.

Dimmer than any decent laptop display, 60 hz and doesn't post freesync range (which means it's terrible). Usually when you market something you market it on the points that don't make it mediocore.

I'm still in search of the mythical monitor that checks all the boxes:
- 4K Though, 3840x2400 is what I'd really like (i.e. 16:10)
- 32"-35"
- IPS
- 10-bit HDR
- FreeSync range where the upper end is at least double the lower, so you can do low-framerate compensation
- VESA mount compatible

I haven't found it yet.

Way too expensive for such shitty specs

Actually it's too expensive to pay for VESA's marketing labels with no added value!

It's too big and too expensive to be on my desk.

I'm still expecting LCD manfacturers to produce flat UHD VA panels between 24-27 inches, enough to display side by side two A4 pages in portrait mode or one A3 page in landscape mode at ~200 px/in.

Please review the Samsung 5k gaming monitor if you get a chance. Especially with adaptive sync for nvidia hardware. This monitor checks all the boxes except affordability unfortunately but comparable 5k ultrawides or hdr gsync are less competitive on paper.

Its great to see the higher end pushed further, b/c one day I need this to trickle down to something I will be able to buy.
