Meet LG’s New 31.5 Inch 4K UHD HDR10 Monitor with USB-C For Macs
Stephan Jukic – February 05, 2019
LG’s new 32UL750-W 4K HDR monitor is without a doubt impressive in almost every way. This large beast of a UHD PC monitor not only delivers a huge amount of display space, it also fills its screen technology with technology that would put many high-end TVs to shame with its quality.
A quick run-down of the 32UL750-W’s specs clearly bears this out: It lays down a powerfully rich 3000:1 contrast ratio, couples with ull 100% sRGB color space coverage and even includes 95% DCI-P3 color space output on the screen, meaning that this is a 4K monitor with Wide Color Gamut, just like today’s premium ultra HD TVs. Naturally enough, with specs like the above, the 32UL750-W also supports HDR10, meaning that it can play back your favorite HDR content from PC games, console games or from streaming media platforms with all the color and contrast that content is capable of. For gamers, the 32UL750-W comes packed with AMD FreeSync technology but unfortunately only handles refresh rates of up to 60Hz, meaning that you won’t get any high frame rate gaming done on this machine even if your PC GPU’s can handle it.
As for the 32UL750-W’s connectivity specs, they’re pretty solid, including USB-C for Mac connectivity power, DisplayPort 1.2 for all sorts of GPU gaming connectivity and dual HDMI 2.0a connections for the latest in HDMI 4K HDR data delivery from external sources. There’s also a dual USB 3.0 hub in this particular powerhouse monitor. LG has even given the 32UL750-W a pair of 5-watt internal speakers with a headphone jack as a further bonus. We wouldn’t expect too much from the speakers though.
The two main downsides with this otherwise very much cutting-edge 4K monitor are that it only delivers 60Hz refresh rates, meaning that even for lower resolution gaming, 60fps is its ceiling; and the monitor’s availability is another issue. Right now it can only be bought in Japan, but a U.S market release is imminent with an expected price tag of $749.00.
