If it should be a little bigger than standard
Actually, the common inch size is 27, but sometimes you just need a bit more screen space. A 32-inch monitor is perfect for this, as it offers a seemingly infinite amount of space with the right resolution. We’ll show you which monitors deliver the best performance in this category here.
Our main product is the Gigabyte M32U, which is not only suitable for gaming with the latest consoles with a 4K resolution, but also shows strong performance in the office. An alternative would be the Samsung Odyssey G7, which has a lower resolution but offers a full 240 Hz. If you pay attention to the price, the LG 32UL500-W is a good choice. The all-rounder delivers a clear picture in 4K and has a simple design – perfect for your home office.
Best 32 inch monitor: Gigabyte M32U
The best 32-inch monitor is the Gigabyte M32U. It has two HDMI 2.1 ports and can therefore exploit the full potential of the latest gaming consoles. That means 4K gaming at 120 Hz on the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5. It also has a slim design and is particularly suitable for office applications. Thus, it cuts a great figure in the office.
In addition, there is a fast response time and a wide viewing angle, which means that the monitor can also be used for multiplayer. With a peak brightness of 350 nits, it is also very bright, so the M32U should satisfy everyone. However, if you want to enjoy HDR content, you should not use the monitor in completely dark rooms. Unfortunately, the not-so-good contrast and the poor black level are noticeable here, which means you can see unevenness.
Faster frame rate: Samsung Odyssey G7
- 240 Hz
- FreeSync Premium Pro
- 1000R camber radius
- Game Mode
- No HDMI 2.1
Those who value even faster images when gaming should take a look at the Samsung Odyssey G7. The monitor has a strong 240 Hz with native FreeSync support and is G-Sync compatible. The incredibly fast response time and low input lag make movements look smooth and offer gamers many advantages.
Thanks to its VA panel and high native contrast, the Samsung is great for gaming in dark rooms. It has a local dimming feature for edge lighting, but like most monitors, it only works moderately and doesn’t improve contrast at all.
Unfortunately, it has a narrow viewing angle due to its VA panel, so it’s not the best choice for co-op gaming as the image looks inaccurate when viewed from the side. Still, the curved screen is very well made and has very strong stats overall.
Cheaper alternative: LG 32UL500-W
- 4K resolution
- High contrast
- Strong color gamut
- Only 60 Hz
- Few gaming features
The LG 32UL500-W is a 4K monitor at a comparatively low price. It is very well manufactured, has an optimal viewing angle and is therefore suitable for the home office.
The VA panel offers good contrast and black reproduction, making it a good choice for dark rooms. The reflectivity and peak brightness are also impressive in bright rooms. The LG has an exceptional color gamut in SDR, excellent grayscale uniformity, and superb gradient processing – so for graphic artists, this monitor would be a good choice as well.
Gamers will unfortunately have to do without some features on the LG, as it has a limited refresh rate of 60 Hz, a relatively slow response time, and few additional gaming features. However, it does support FreeSync variable refresh rate technology, so it can offer a decent gaming experience. Overall, even though it is somewhat limited in terms of additional features, the LG monitor is the best budget monitor available in a 32-inch size.
