Monitors come in many shapes and sizes, and although 27 inches and 34-inch monitors have become very popular recently, there are quite a few good monitors available in 28″, 29″, and 32″ sizes. Although they’re sometimes seen as niche sizes, many of them offer the same great features found on more popular sizes, including advanced gaming features like FreeSync, high-resolution 4k screens, and, more recently, HDR support. Read the post till the end to get the list of all the best 32 inch PC.
1. LG 32UD99-W 32 Inch Monitors
The best 32 Inch Monitors we’ve tested so far is the LG 32UD99-W. This monitor’s 4k resolution makes it a great choice for both productivity and gaming. Text remains sharp and easy to read, and the monitor’s size allows you to have multiple windows open at the same time without feeling cramped.
The IPS panel of this 32 Inch Monitors has wide viewing angles, so images don’t appear washed out when viewed from the side, which is great for sharing content or for co-op games. Although the monitor’s refresh rate is limited to 60Hz, it does support FreeSync variable refresh rate technology, which provides a nearly tear-free gaming experience. Input lag is low, the response time is good, and the monitor’s flicker-free backlight helps to reduce eye strain during those long gaming sessions. The monitor’s clean and minimalist design fits easily into any setting and the slim bezels are great for multi-monitor setups.
Generally speaking, IPS monitors have rather mediocre contrast ratio and black uniformity; however, this is one of the best performing IPS panels we’ve seen in terms of displaying deeper blacks. It has decent color accuracy out of the box and it supports HDR, though the monitor’s peak brightness may struggle to bring out highlights in HDR content. Overall, this is the best 32-inch monitor we’ve tested so far.
2. DELL U3219Q
The 32 Inch Monitors If the LG-32UD99 W is slightly out of your budget, check out the Dell U3219Q. It’s also a 4k monitor with a 60Hz refresh rate; however, build quality and ergonomics are significantly improved compared to the LG. The downside is that it doesn’t support variable refresh rate technology, black uniformity is noticeably worse, and the backlight isn’t flicker-free. It has decent HDR performance and there’s a local dimming feature as well, though it performs rather poorly. On the upside, it gets bright enough to combat glare and its reflection handling isn’t bad, but it struggles in really bright rooms. Lastly, this monitor has great color accuracy out of the box and it also has a USB 3.0 hub for charging.
Overall, the LG is still our main recommendation, but if your budget is tight, the Dell is a good alternative that performs admirably.
3. BENQ EW3270U 32 Inch Monitors
If you prefer using your monitor in dark rooms, consider the BenQ EW3270U. It doesn’t get as bright and can’t handle reflections as well as the LG-32UD99 W, but it has a much better contrast ratio, displaying deeper blacks when viewed in the dark. Although VA panel monitors are known to have bad viewing angles, the BenQ actually has decent viewing angles, which are some of the best we’ve seen on a VA monitor so far. It has an excellent input lag and a good response time, but unfortunately, there’s some blur motion trail behind fast-moving objects. If you’re a photographer, you’ll be happy to know it has excellent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space used for photo editing and the 4k resolution allows you to see more detail.
If you’re looking for the best 32-inch computer monitor we’ve tested so far, then look into the LG, but if you prefer a monitor with better dark room performance, then consider the BenQ.
3. Samsung C32HG70
The best 32 inch gaming monitor we’ve tested so far is the Samsung C32HG70. It’s a good overall monitor with great gaming performance. Although we tested the 27 inch version of this monitor, we expect its performance to be the same for the 32 inch version, except it doesn’t have a flicker-free backlight.
It has the features most gamers expect to find in a monitor. It has a 144Hz refresh rate, native FreeSync support with G-SYNC compatibility, and it has an outstanding response time at its max refresh rate. Input lag is also really low, and it’s actually slightly lower with VRR enabled, ideal for competitive gaming. Sadly, its response time at 60Hz is bad, resulting in ghosting with fast-moving content. Also, with a VA panel, this monitor is ideal for dark-room gaming, as it displays deep blacks. Additionally, it delivers a decent HDR experience as it covers 90% of the DCI-P3 color space used in most HDR content.
Unfortunately, it has narrow viewing angles, which is expected from a VA panel, and its black uniformity is poor. It also has a full-array local dimming feature, but like most monitors, it’s bad. On the upside, it has great out-of-the-box color accuracy, it has great peak brightness, and it has good reflection handling too. All in all, this is the best 32-inch monitor for gaming we’ve seen so far.
4. LG 32GK850G
If you prefer a monitor with native G-SYNC support, then the LG 32GK850G-B is a good choice too. It doesn’t support HDR like the Samsung CHG70, but its native 144Hz refresh rate can be easily overclocked to 165Hz. The response time at its max refresh rate is exceptional, similar to the Samsung, and it has an excellent response time at 60Hz too, resulting in a smooth motion. It doesn’t have a black frame insertion feature, but you likely won’t need it anyway. Sadly, this monitor has mediocre out-of-the-box color accuracy, so you have to get it calibrated to enjoy the monitor to the fullest. It also has narrow viewing angles due to its VA panel, but that means it has a good contrast ratio, displaying deep blacks when viewing in the dark.
Overall, if you want the best 32-inch monitor for gaming we’ve tested, the Samsung is a great choice, but if you want a monitor with native G-SYNC support, the LG is a good alternative.
