The LG 32EP950 is a premium-priced monitor with an OLED panel, known for its deep blacks and high contrast, making it ideal for HDR gaming and media consumption with its excellent color volume. Its 32-inch, 4K resolution provides crystal-clear image clarity, and it's suitable for print photo editing due to its high AdobeRGB color gamut coverage. However, it's less ideal for competitive gaming, given its poor refresh rate and total response time, which can lead to ghosting during fast-paced action. Its panel also allows for wide viewing angles and accurate color reproduction, which is essential for digital art but not as necessary for general productivity tasks. It lacks variability in refresh rate technologies and doesn't excel in casual gaming compared to other monitors that might offer faster response times and higher refresh rates at a lower price point.

Simon Baker | May 2021
"This screen is aimed at professional users, content creation and HDR video production. The OLED panel offers really great picture quality with bright, vivid colours, true deep blacks and infinite contrast ratio for SDR and HDR. The semi-glossy screen coating does add to the picture quality and feel of the screen as well."
