  • KVM switch and USB-C hub with power delivery.
  • Fantastic color accuracy in SDR.
  • Outstanding gradient handling.
  • Good SDR brightness.
Cons
  • Limited height adjustment and no rotation.
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • Fair HDR brightness.
6.4 HDR

The Lenovo Legion Y32p-30 has mediocre HDR performance. While its HDR color gamut is good, these colors only have decent vividness and accuracy. Additionally, contrast is mediocre, and black uniformity is poor. In a darker room, deep blacks appear gray, and backlight bleed at the edges of the monitor is visible with local dimming off, while leaving local dimming on creates some issues. HDR brightness is only fair, and highlights don't get bright enough to pop. However, the monitor does an outstanding job of handling gradients, ensuring banding between colors isn't visible.

Pros
  • Outstanding gradient handling.
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • Fair HDR brightness.
  • Local dimming issues in HDR 400 mode.

Compared To Other Monitors

The Lenovo Legion Y32p-30 is an upper mid-range 32-inch gaming monitor with 4k resolution. Unlike some gaming monitors, it has several productivity features, like a KVM switch, a USB-C hub with power delivery, and the ability to display multiple inputs at once, making it a versatile option. If you're willing to sacrifice productivity features for slightly better gaming performance, consider the LG 32GR93U-B, which performs slightly better at gaming but lacks a USB-C hub and KVM switch.

The Dell G3223Q and the Lenovo Y32p-30 are both excellent 4k, 32-inch gaming monitors. They perform similarly for gaming; however, the Lenovo has several extra productivity features. This includes a KVM switch and an integrated USB-C hub with power delivery. This makes the Lenovo a great choice in a hot-desking or work-from-home environment. However, the Dell has substantially better HDR color gamut and volume and is much brighter in both HDR and SDR, making it a better choice if you watch many videos or use the monitor in a bright room.

LG 32GR93U-B

The LG 32GR93U-B and the Lenovo Y32p-30 are both 32-inch gaming-focused monitors. They perform very similarly for most usages. However, the Lenovo has several features that the LG lacks. This includes an integrated USB-C hub with power delivery, a KVM switch, and stand swivel functionality. These features make the Lenovo a great option if you work from home with two computers or are in a hot-desking environment. However, the LG is substantially brighter and has better reflection handling, making it a better choice for brighter environments. Additionally, the LG has a markedly better HDR color gamut and volume.

Samsung Odyssey G7/G70B S32BG70

The Samsung Odyssey G7/G70B S32BG70 and the Lenovo Y32p-30 are 4k 32-inch monitors focused on gaming. Both perform similarly, though there are several differences. The Lenovo has several productivity features, such as a KVM switch and a USB-C hub with power delivery. This makes the Lenovo a great choice in a hot-desking or work-from-home environment. However, the Samsung has substantially better HDR color gamut and volume, making it a better option if you watch lots of HDR content. The Samsung also has substantially greater height adjustment and can be rotated into portrait orientation.

The Lenovo Legion Y32p-30's contrast is adequate. Deep blacks appear gray in a dark room. However, this isn't as noticeable in brighter environments. If you plan to use this in a darker room, and contrast is important to you, consider a VA panel like the Gigabyte M32UC instead.

The local dimming performance is terrible. Lenovo doesn't list local dimming as a feature for this monitor, and there's no option for turning it on in settings. During our testing with Windows 11, it only activates when the monitor is sent an HDR signal and is in HDR 400 mode with Adaptive Sync off. However, local dimming activation varies between sources.

When local dimming does activate, it doesn't work properly. The backlight zones don't follow the object and light up sections of the screen with no content. Additionally, the object itself is inconsistently lit by the backlit zones. For this reason, in Windows 11, we suggest not using the HDR 400 mode if Adaptive Sync is turned off. Other modes like HDR Movie or HDR Game don't turn on backlight dimming; we suggest using them instead of HDR 400.

You can see this same test without local dimming, as well as a recording where we normalize the brightness of the object.

The monitor has good SDR brightness and overcomes glare in brighter rooms. If you want to use the monitor in darker rooms, you'll only reach the lowest minimum brightness level when Brightness Native is turned off. However, several functions like backlight strobing and dynamic contrast aren't available if you do this.

These results are from after calibration in the 'Standard' Game Mode, with Brightness set to max and Brightness Native turned 'On'.

The Lenovo Legion Y32p-30 has fair HDR performance. However, if local dimming is on, the monitor has problematic and inconsistent HDR performance, so we used HDR Movie mode to ensure it's off. This mode is similar in brightness and EOTF and is only slightly worse in color performance than HDR 400. However, this mode doesn't cause any local dimming issues.

When used in HDR Movie, the screen is bright enough to overcome glare from light sources, but highlights won't pop. Darker scenes have proper brightness, but more brilliant scenes fall short of the creator's intended brightness, as the monitor has only decent brightness and the PQ EOTF has an early roll-off.

These results are from the 'HDR Movie' HDR mode.

The monitor has disappointing black uniformity. When you turn off local dimming, the backlight bleed is visible in a darker room.

However, black uniformity with local dimming on is terrible. If you're using Windows 11 with local dimming and watching certain HDR content, some objects on the screen appear too dark, even as dimming zones with nothing in them are too bright.

A KVM switch is integrated into the monitor, allowing quick keyboard and mouse switching between multiple connected computers. When Smart Power is off, the monitor delivers 45W of power over USB-C but provides as much as 75W when turned on.

Inputs
macOS Compatibility

The Lenovo Legion Y32p-30 works well with macOS. The monitor displays 1080p over every connection type by default with macOS, but you can quickly change it to 4k. Older Macs with HDMI 2.0 bandwidth have a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz and no VRR support, though HDR is available.

Newer Macs with HDMI 2.1 bandwidth can take advantage of all the monitor's features, including a 144Hz refresh rate, VRR, and HDR. All these features are also available when using USB-C to DisplayPort. Some flickering can occur after VRR is used with this connection, though you can stop this by pressing the Alt + Tab keys.

If you're using a MacBook, windows return to their original places after opening and closing the lid, and the Lenovo display stays on while the MacBook is closed.
