The LG 32GN600-B is a 32-inch, 1440p monitor with a VA panel. It's nearly identical to the LG 32GN650-B but with a much simpler stand and worse ergonomics. It has a 165Hz refresh rate with native FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support and works with NVIDIA's G-SYNC Compatible feature. It's an entry-level model that's fairly limited in extra features. However, it still has add-ons that most gamers would expect, like crosshair and black stabilizer features to give you a competitive advantage while gaming.

Our Verdict

7.2 Mixed Usage

The LG 32GN600 is a decent monitor for most uses. It has low input lag and a fast response time, making it a great choice for gamers. The large, relatively high-resolution screen is decent for office use or media creators but has terrible ergonomics and poor viewing angles. It has great contrast and decent black uniformity, so it's a decent choice for HDR gaming or watching videos in a dark room.

Pros
  • Fast refresh rate.
  • Great screen real estate.
Cons
  • Image degrades at an angle.
  • Terrible ergonomics.
  • Just okay text clarity.
6.5 Office

The LG UltraGear 32GN600-B is a satisfactory office monitor. The large, relatively high-resolution screen is great for multitasking, but the pixel density is low, and text clarity is just okay. It has decent reflection handling and decent peak brightness in SDR, so glare won't be an issue for most people unless you're in a bright room. Unfortunately, it has narrow viewing angles, and the stand has terrible ergonomics.

Pros
  • Decent SDR peak brightness and reflection handling.
  • Fantastic accuracy before calibration.
  • Great screen real estate.
Cons
  • Image degrades at an angle.
  • Terrible ergonomics.
  • Just okay text clarity.
7.9 Gaming

The LG 32GN600 is a great gaming monitor. It has an okay response time at the max refresh rate, but like most VA monitors, there's noticeable black smearing. It also has fantastic low input lag, supports FreeSync VRR technology, and is G-SYNC compatible. The large, relatively high-resolution screen delivers an immersive gaming experience, but it has narrow viewing angles, so it isn't recommended for co-op gaming.

Pros
  • Fast refresh rate.
  • Low input lag.
  • Great screen real estate.
Cons
  • Black smearing in dark scenes.
  • Terrible ergonomics.
7.4 Media Consumption

The LG 32GN600 is a decent monitor for watching videos. The large, relatively high-resolution screen delivers a more immersive feel when watching videos, but the narrow viewing angles make it a poor choice for watching with other people. It has decent reflection handling and decent peak brightness in SDR, so glare won't be an issue in a moderately-lit room, and it looks good in a dark room thanks to its great contrast and decent black uniformity.

Pros
  • Decent SDR peak brightness and reflection handling.
  • Fantastic accuracy before calibration.
Cons
  • Image degrades at an angle.
  • Terrible ergonomics.
7.2 Media Creation

The LG UltraGear 32GN600 is a decent monitor for media creators. The large, relatively high-resolution screen makes it easier to see more of your workflow at once, but the lower pixel density results in just okay text clarity. It has an excellent SDR color gamut but has limited coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. Unfortunately, the stand has terrible ergonomics, and the image degrades at an angle, so it isn't a good choice if you have to share your screen with someone else.

Pros
  • Excellent SDR color gamut.
  • Decent SDR peak brightness and reflection handling.
  • Fantastic accuracy before calibration.
  • Great screen real estate.
Cons
  • Image degrades at an angle.
  • Terrible ergonomics.
  • Just okay text clarity.
6.6 HDR

The LG 32GN600-B is alright for HDR. It displays deep blacks in dark rooms thanks to its high native contrast ratio, but it doesn't have a local dimming feature to further improve it. Unfortunately, it can't display the wide range of colors needed for HDR, and it has low peak brightness, so colors and highlights look dull and muted.

Pros
  • High contrast ratio.
Cons
  • Can't display wide color gamut.
  • No local dimming.
  • Low HDR peak brightness.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 32-inch LG 32GN600-B, part of LG's UltraGear gaming monitor lineup. There are other similar monitors in LG's UltraGear lineup with various configurations, and you can see the differences between them below, but the results aren't valid for those models.

Our unit was manufactured in June 2021; you can see the label here.

Compared To Other Monitors

The LG UltraGear 32GN600 is a basic gaming monitor that doesn't stand out against the competition. It's great for gaming, with low input lag and an okay response time, but there are far better options for just a bit more, like the LG 32GP850-B or even the Gigabyte M27Q if you're on a tight budget. Those monitors have wider viewing angles, making them better for co-op gaming, and have better motion handling.

For more options, check out our recommendations for the best budget gaming monitors, the best 32-inch monitors, and the best 1440p monitors.

Gigabyte M27Q (rev 1.0)

The Gigabyte M27Q is a much better monitor than the LG 32GN600-B for most people. The Gigabyte has wider viewing angles and better ergonomics, so it's a bit more versatile. The Gigabyte is also much better for gaming, with a significantly faster response time, especially at 60Hz. On the other hand, the LG is better for a dark room, as it has better contrast and better black uniformity.

LG 32GN650-B/32GN63T-B

The LG 32GN650-B and the LG 32GN600-B are nearly identical. The only significant difference between them is the stand. The 32GN650-B has a more advanced stand with much better ergonomics, so it's easier to adjust it to an ideal viewing position.

LG 32GP850-B

The LG 32GP850-B and the LG 32GN600-B use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses, but overall, the 32GP850-B is better for most people. The 32GP850 has better ergonomics, much better viewing angles, and a much faster response time. The 32GN600-B, on the other hand, has much better contrast and better black uniformity, so it's a better choice for a dark room.

LG 27GN800-B

The LG 27GN800-B and the LG 32GN600-B are both great gaming monitors, but the best one depends on your needs. The 32GN600-B has a VA panel, and it's best suited for a dark room, with deep blacks and decent black uniformity. The 27GN800-B has an IPS panel, which is best suited for a brighter environment, and it has better viewing angles and better reflection handling. The 27GN800-B is a better choice for gaming, as it has a much faster response time, so there's less blur behind fast-moving objects.

LG 32GN63T-B

The LG 32GN600-B and the LG 32GN63T-B are very similar monitors. The 32GN63T-B is a slightly higher-end version whose stand is more versatile as it has much better ergonomics. Other than that, both monitors are very similar, but the 32GN600-B has better motion handling.

AOC CQ32G1

The LG 32GN600-B is better than the AOC CQ32G1. The LG has better black uniformity, much better gradient handling, and a faster response time. Unlike the AOC, the LG supports HDR, but this doesn't add much, as it can't display a wide color gamut and can't get very bright in HDR. On the other hand, the AOC has better viewing angles.

LG 27GL650F-B

The LG 27GL650F-B and the LG 32GN600-B use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses. The 32GN600-B has a VA panel, with much better contrast and better black uniformity, so it's a better choice for a dark room. The 27GL650F-B has an IPS panel, with better viewing angles, and it also has much better ergonomics and a smaller, lower-resolution screen.

This monitor has an okay response time at its max refresh rate of 165Hz. Like many monitors with a VA panel, it has a slow response time in dark transitions, leading to black smearing. Luckily, there isn't any overshoot leading to inverse ghosting when using the 'Fast' overdrive setting. 'Faster' has a quicker response time, but there's more overshoot.

The UltraGear LG 32GN600 has an alright response time at 60Hz. Motion looks similar to higher refresh rate signals, but the recommended overdrive setting is 'Normal' because 'Fast' and 'Faster' have more overshoot. This means you may have to change the setting if the frame rate of your game drops.

Windows return to their original position when waking from sleep, but like most monitors, they don't return to their original positions if you just close the lid. Unfortunately, HDR isn't displayed properly and appears extremely washed out, with a maximum brightness of around 100 cd/m². The variable refresh rate feature works well in games, but like most displays, it flickers a bit on the desktop or if the frame rate in your game drops close to the minimum refresh rate.

This monitor has a few extra features, but it isn't as well-equipped as the higher-end LG UltraGear monitors.

  • Crosshair: Adds a virtual crosshair as an overlay to any game. Unlike software crosshairs, this virtual overlay can't be detected by the game.
  • Black Stabilizer: Adjusts gamma to make it easier to spot objects/players in dark scenes without adjusting bright scenes.
