In the recent years LG has introduced a number of high-end Ultra-HD 31.5-inch displays, many of which have received a lot of publicity due of their features and innovative technologies. As of late, the company has also expanded into midrange and entry-level segments with its 31.5-inch monitors. And to that end, this week LG has begun selling its 32UL750-W Ultra-HD LCD, a midrange 4K display for customers who want something better than the company's mainstream offerings, but are not ready to invest in a high-end model.

The LG 32UL750-W is based on a 31.5-inch VA panel that offers a 3840×2160 resolution, 400 nits typical brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, 178° viewing angles, a 60 Hz refresh rate (with FreeSync), and a 4 ms response time. The DisplayHDR 600 badge that the monitor carries obviously points to 600 nits peak brightness along with HDR10 processing capabilities, but LG is not publishing any information about local dimming and LUTs (look-up-tables) for HDR. Meanwhile the panel can reproduce 1.07 billion colors and covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color space (and should be able to hit 100% of the sRGB color gamut).

To make the monitor more attractive for the target audience, the 32UL750-W display comes factory calibrated and supports a number of features designed for gamers, including LG’s Black Stabilizer (makes dark scenes brighter) and Dynamic Action Sync (minimizes input lag), as well as AMD's FreeSync already mentioned before.

 

Connectivity is another strong selling point of the 32UL750-W. The monitor has a DisplayPort 1.2 input, two HDMI 2.0b ports, as well as one USB Type-C connector. The latter supports up to 60 W power delivery, so it can help to power many modern laptops. As for audio, the display has two 5 W speakers and a headphone output. As an added bonus, it also features a dual-port USB 3.0 hub.

Looking at LG's broader lineup, the LG 32UL750-W sits right between the company’s range-topping 32UK950/32UL950 Ultra-HD monitors, which use panels with LG’s Nano IPS technology, as well as its more reasonably-priced 32UK550 Ultra-HD display. The high-end 31.5-inch LCDs from LG retail for $1000 ~ $1300, whereas the cheaper 31.5-inch monitor costs around $500. The new 32UL750 will, in turn, cost approximately $749 (SRP) in the US, placing it between the other models in both features and pricing.

LG started to sell its 32UL750-W LCD in Japan this week at a price of ¥76,800 ($705) without tax. That said, expect the display to show up in other countries shortly. Which, keeping in mind that electronics prices in Japan tend to run a bit high by global standards, I wouldn't be surprised to see street prices for the monitor in the US come in below its official $749 MSRP.

    The 950 is even more tempting as a photography/light non competitive gaming monitor. My limitation is GPU prices haven't reached the point where I will pay for something to drive that monitor. Reply

    Mid-range specs. High-end price. Skip. Reply

    Yeah, someone at Anandtech knows what they're doing...

    Not too shabby. Now make it with IPS panel and 100Hz at $1200. How hard is to make anything like that. Reply

    Very hard obviously, looking at AUO not even being able to keep dust out of their panels.
    $100 panels being sold for $1200. And people actually buy that crap with massive amounts of BLB, glow, input lag, dead pixels and clouding.

    LG is the only one who has at least some kind of quality standard, but they arent doing enough either.

    Even with the rather lacklustre FS range, this monitor definitely ticks quite a few boxes for ... well, a non-egregious price. It's definitely not "midrange", I'd call $750 square in the high-end range, even if there are more expensive options. As Inteli said above, "midrange" for a monitor is around $300.

    Still, with UHD resolution, (on-paper) good color accuracy (factory calibration! Yay!) and a wide gamut, 3000:1 contrast ratio, rudimentary HDR support and FS (even with limited range), this is a rather attractive monitor for the price and size.

    Crazy price tag where my LG 43 TV has similar specs except that it doesn't VRR and less contrast ratio. Reply

    ... not to mention likely poor color accuracy, mandatory processing on most inputs, terrible input lag, and so on. Oh, and it's not exactly a secret that TV panels are easier to manufacture than PC monitors, nor that the total addressable market for TVs is many times the size of the monitor market, allowing them to get by with lower margins/necessitating lower margins due to more competition.

    $750 is mid-range? I have to agree with you guys, $750 is not mid-range for a monitor. Gaming in 60Hz is also not the greatest. Reply
