Color Accuracy

The LG 32GR93U-B is a mid-range 4k, 144Hz gaming monitor. Part of the UltraGear gaming lineup, it's a newer and lower-end model than the LG 32GQ950-B with a lower 144Hz refresh rate, and it sits alongside the LG 27GR93U-B. It's designed with console gaming in mind, as it has HDMI 2.1 bandwidth that can take full advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. It also has FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support and G-SYNC compatibility to reduce screen tearing. It has a few inputs to connect your devices, including an audio port that supports DTS:X audio, but other than that, it's limited in many extra features.

Our Verdict

7.3 PC Gaming

The LG 32GR93U-B is decent for PC gaming. Some competitive gamers may find its 144Hz refresh rate limiting, but it supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth and all common VRR formats to reduce screen tearing. Luckily, it has low input lag for a responsive feel, and it has a fast response time that remains consistent across its VRR range, resulting in sharp motion. Unfortunately, though, it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks look gray, so it isn't ideal for dark room gaming as it has limited picture quality.

Pros
  • Consistently fast response time.
  • Supports all common VRR formats.
  • Low input lag.
Cons
  • Low contrast ratio.
  • Highlights don't pop against the rest of the image.
8.2 Console Gaming

The LG 32GR93U is great for console gaming. It takes full advantage of the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 and delivers detailed images thanks to its HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. Gaming feels responsive due to its low input lag, and it has a fast response time at 120Hz and 60Hz for sharp motion. Sadly, it's a disappointing choice if you want realistic images, as it has limited picture quality due to its low contrast and lack of local dimming.

Pros
  • HDMI 2.1 bandwidth.
  • Consistently fast response time.
  • Low input lag.
Cons
  • Low contrast ratio.
  • Highlights don't pop against the rest of the image.
8.4 Office

The LG 32GR93U is great for the office. Its large 32-inch screen is ideal for multitasking with different windows open, and it has high pixel density to produce sharp and clear text. You won't have issues using it in a well-lit room as it easily gets bright enough to fight glare, and the reflection handling is great. It also has wide enough viewing angles to share your screen with someone else, but the stand doesn't offer swivel adjustment to turn the display.

Pros
  • Sharp text and image clarity.
  • Great peak brightness.
  • Decent viewing angles.
  • Great reflection handling.
Cons
  • No swivel adjustment.
  • Limited in extra office features.
7.8 Editing

The LG 32GR93U is good for media creation. It has a large screen that makes it easier to multitask or view more of your work area at once, and its 4k resolution helps deliver high pixel density and sharp text clarity. It also has an extremely accurate sRGB mode, so you won't need to calibrate it for accurate colors. Lastly, its wide viewing angles are great if you need to share your screen with a coworker or client, but without swivel adjustments on the stand, it's difficult to turn the screen.

Pros
  • Sharp text and image clarity.
  • Great peak brightness.
  • Decent viewing angles.
  • Extremely accurate sRGB mode.
Cons
  • No swivel adjustment.
  • Limited in extra office features.
  • Low contrast ratio.
7.5 Brightness

The LG 32GR93U has good brightness. It easily gets bright enough to fight intense glare in well-lit rooms, but it doesn't make small highlights pop in HDR.

Pros
  • Great peak brightness.
Cons
  • Highlights don't pop against the rest of the image.
8.0 Response Time

The LG 32GR93U has a great overall response time. It maintains a consistently fast response time across its refresh rate range, but it doesn't eliminate all blur and inverse ghosting.

Pros
  • Consistently fast response time.
Cons
5.4 HDR Picture

The LG 32GR93U is terrible for HDR. It has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks look gray, and it lacks a local dimming feature to further improve the picture quality. It also struggles to make colors look vivid and highlights pop.

Pros
Cons
  • Low contrast ratio.
  • No local dimming feature.
7.4 SDR Picture

The LG 32GR93U has decent picture quality in SDR. While it displays a wide range of colors, it has limited picture quality due to its low contrast, which makes blacks look gray.

Pros
  • Displays wide range of colors.
Cons
  • Low contrast ratio.
8.9 Color Accuracy

The LG 32GR93U has amazing color accuracy. It has fantastic accuracy before calibration in its dedicated sRGB mode, and calibrating it doesn't significantly improve color accuracy. It also has good gray uniformity that keeps the image consistent throughout most of the screen, but the edges are darker.

Pros
  • Extremely accurate sRGB mode.
  • Good gray uniformity.
Cons
  • 7.3 PC Gaming
  • 8.2 Console Gaming
  • 8.4 Office
  • 7.8 Editing

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 32-inch LG 32GR93U, and the results are only valid for this review. While the 27-inch LG 27GR93U-B is also available, it's a separate monitor.

Model Size Panel Type Resolution Max Refresh Rate
32GR93U-B 32" IPS 4k 144Hz

Our unit was manufactured in June 2023; you can see the label here.

Compared To Other Monitors

The LG 32GR93U is a good all-around monitor that offers HDMI 2.1 bandwidth for console gaming, and its fast response time makes motion look sharp, even better than the LG 27GR93U-B. Because of this, it offers almost anything a gamer would want in a 4k, 144Hz monitor, and it's a good alternative to the more expensive LG 32GQ950-B, which doesn't offer much improvement in terms of performance. However, other higher refresh rate monitors are available for PC gaming, and this monitor doesn't have as many productivity features as the Gigabyte M32U.

See our recommendations for the best 4k gaming monitors, the best 4k 144Hz monitors, and the best 32-inch monitors.

Gigabyte M32U

The Gigabyte M32U and the LG 32GR93U-B are both decent 4k gaming monitors. They perform similarly, but there are a few differences. The LG has a slight advantage in gaming as it has a faster response time across its entire refresh rate range and a slightly lower input lag. However, the Gigabyte has more extra features, like a KVM switch and USB-C port, making it easier to multitask with different devices. The Gigabyte also has a more ergonomic stand that offers swivel adjustment, so it's easier to share your screen with someone else.

Dell G3223Q

The Dell G3223Q and the LG 32GR93U-B are both good 4k, 144Hz gaming monitors. They perform very similarly, but the LG has a slight advantage when gaming at 60Hz as it has a faster response time and lower input lag. The Dell has a more accurate sRGB mode, but the LG is still accurate regardless. Besides that, both monitors are very similar, and you'll be happy with either.

LG 32GQ950-B

The LG 32GQ950-B is a higher-end monitor than the LG 32GR93U-B, but both monitors perform similarly. The main difference is that the 32GQ950-B has an overclock feature to boost its refresh rate up to 160Hz, but it doesn't work on all devices. The 32GQ950-B also has a local dimming feature, which the 32GR93U-B doesn't have, and while it helps improve the HDR brightness, it performs terribly overall. The 32GR93U-B is better to use in well-lit rooms thanks to its much better reflection handling, and it gets a bit brighter in SDR, too.

Samsung Odyssey G7/G70B S32BG70

The Samsung Odyssey G7/G70B S32BG70 and the LG 32GR93U-B are both excellent 4k, 144Hz gaming monitors. The LG has a slight advantage for gaming as it has a quicker response time and lower input lag at 60Hz. The LG is also a bit better in well-lit rooms, as it has slightly better reflection handling and SDR brightness. While the Samsung has a local dimming feature, which the LG doesn't have, it performs terribly and doesn't offer any advantages.

LG 27GR93U-B

The LG 32GR93U-B and the LG 27GR93U-B are similar mid-range monitors, with one of the main differences being their sizes. There are still some differences in performance, though, as the 32-inch model has better motion handling, and it also has better HDR color volume for more vivid colors. Another difference is that the 27-inch model has improved brightness, but the 32-inch model has better reflection handling.

LG 27GP950-B

The LG 27GP950-B and the LG 32GR93U-B are both excellent 4k gaming monitors. They perform similarly, but there are a few differences, as the 27GP950-B has an overclock feature to bring the refresh rate up to 160Hz. The 27GP950-B also gets brighter in HDR and has a local dimming feature, which the 32GR93U-B doesn't have, but the 27GP950-B's performance in HDR is limited anyway. On the other hand, the 32GR93U-B has a faster response time at any refresh rate and has much better reflection handling, so it's better to use in a well-lit room.

Lenovo Legion Y32p-30

The LG 32GR93U-B and the Lenovo Legion 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.

The HDR brightness is decent. While it gets bright, small highlights don't pop against the rest of the image because it lacks a local dimming feature. The EOTF is also terrible as dark scenes are over brightened, and it has an early roll-off, so highlights don't get very bright. These results are in the 'Gamer 1' Game Mode with the Brightness at its max.

The LG UltraGear 32GR93U-B has fantastic accuracy before calibration in the sRGB mode. Most colors and the white balance are only slightly inaccurate, and the color temperature is very close to the 6500K target. Even gamma follows the target sRGB curve well, but dark scenes are too dark, and bright scenes are too bright. Unfortunately, the 'sRGB' Game Mode locks many settings, including Response Time, so if you want to use any of those settings, you'd have to use another picture mode that has oversaturated colors, as you can see here.

The LG 32GR93U-B has great motion handling across its entire refresh rate range with VRR enabled. The 'Off,' 'Normal,' and 'Fast' Response Time settings all perform similarly, but 'Fast' is the best for most refresh rates. That said, 'Normal' is more consistent over the entire refresh rate range and has lower CAD at lower frame rates. The 'Faster' Overdrive setting performs so badly that it passes the limits of the graph, as you can see here.

This monitor works well with the Xbox Series X|S, but you need to enable the HDMI override setting for 1440p @ 60Hz to work, which also disables VRR. Keep in mind that the console doesn't support HDR with 1080p or 1440p signals, so this isn't a limitation of the monitor.

The LG 32GR93U-B has no USB-C ports, but if you're looking for a monitor with a USB-C hub, you may want to consider the Lenovo Legion Y32p-30.

Inputs
macOS Compatibility

This monitor works well with macOS. Using a DisplayPort to USB-C cable, VRR and HDR work simultaneously, and there aren't any compatibility issues. If you're using a MacBook, windows return to their original position when reopening the lid or waking the laptop up from sleep. However, if you're using the 2023 M2 MacBook Pro with HDMI, the max refresh rate is 144Hz without VRR, as you can only get up to 120Hz with VRR. Also, you need to make sure the monitor's Input Version setting is set to 'PC.'

  • Black Stabilizer: Adjusts the gamma so that it's easier to see opponents in dark areas.
  • Crosshair: Adds a virtual crosshair that your game's anti-cheat tool won't detect, giving you a competitive advantage.
  • DFC: Changes the contrast based on the content.
  • DTS:X Headphones: The monitor offers a few different sound modes to use with DTS:X compatible devices.
  • Hexagon Lighting: This is the setting to adjust the RGB lighting on the back of the monitor.
  • Variable Backlight: Boosts the contrast level in HDR, but it isn't a local dimming setting.
