LG 32MA68HY-P Review

LG is one of the most known and reputable companies when it comes to screens. Even the other most known electronics companies use some of their screens in their phones and TVs. But it’s always to buy straight from the source. Especially since you can get a product that’s not only as good quality but also much cheaper. Today we are going to review a 32″ monitor that’s not only incredibly affordable but it also has a fantastic image quality. It’s called the LG 32MA68HY-P!

Design

The LG 32MA68HY-P is a 32 inch IPS monitor. It has an external dimension of 72.6×49.3×20.6 cm / 28.6×19.4×8.1″. And yes, that does include the size of the stand. The monitor it self is super thin. It seems to be the current trend of screens. Bigger and thinner. The screen is surrounded by a thin plastic bezel. Actually the entire backside of the monitor is made out of some pretty decent quality plastic. The stand also looks pretty nice, it has a glossy black finish to it. It doesn’t take up that much space. You also have the option of removing it.

The backside of the monitor has VESA wall mount screw holes. You can use these to mount it onto a wall. This will make it much more compact than using a stand. You’ll also find all the ports there. The monitor has VGA, 3.5mm audio jack, Display Port, HDMI, two plain USB ports and a USB type B port. The LG 32MA68HY-P includes a power cord that’s plugged into the DC input.

Overall I think that LG has done a great job with the monitor. I’m actually surprised that the stand is this small, considering that it’s holding a 32″ screen. And it’s also really sturdy, so props to LG for that. I also like the modern sleek style of the monitor. I’m a huge fan of sharp edges so I might be a bit biased here.

Performance

I have mentioned a couple of times here that the LG 32MA68HY-P monitor has an IPS screen. For those of you that aren’t familiar with IPS, it’s basically the best screen type for the average person. It has a fantastic image quality and you can also use it for gaming if you want. Unless you are gaming professionally, in which case you might want to take a look at monitors with TN instead. However that’s incredibly specific. IPS is still the best for anything other than gaming.

And I can say that this is also the case with the LG 32MA68HY-P monitor. It has excellent colors that are extremely vibrant and sharp. The only thing that I don’t like is that it comes with a glossy finish. I wish there was a way to get it in matte. LG has added some sort of an anti glare film to cover it but it’s still fairly glossy in my opinion.

The LG monitor also comes with a couple of interesting built in features. First of all you can configure all of the screen settings from the OnScreen Control tab. You can adjust the brightness, contrast and even color levels. The monitor also includes a reader mode. Turning it on reduces the blue light and makes it feel like you are viewing a piece of paper. And there’s also a Screen Split 2.0 feature that let’s you fit multiple windows onto the screen. It’s pretty handy in my opinion. Especially since I work with spreadsheets most of the time.

Conclusion

I was quite sceptical when I first saw the LG 32MA68HY-P monitor. Mostly because of the price. It’s one of the cheapest 32″ IPS monitors you can currently buy. Which is why I was somewhat afraid that they might have cut some corners to make it possible. But I can now say that I have been proven wrong. The LG 32MA68HY-P is the perfect 32″ monitor for most people. It has a Full HD 1920×1080 resolution that’s enough for the average computer user. Unfortunately the 4K and 1440p versions aren’t as cheap yet. So if you are someone that edits videos then you might need to look at something with a bigger resolution.
