The ~32″ screen size is often considered something of a sweet spot for the ‘4K’ UHD resolution, delivering a pleasing pixel density and excellent ‘desktop real-estate’. The LG 32UP83A (32UP83A-W due to the white rear) offers this, with the company’s signature crescent-shaped silver plastic stand design and cylindrical stand neck. The top and side bezels are dual-stage with a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen, plus a slim hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick on the underside of the monitor, in the central region.

A familiar look

A 31.5″ 3840 x 2160 ‘4K’ UHD IPS-type panel is employed, likely the BOE MV315QUM-N20 IPS-ADS or similar panel. A light matte anti-glare screen surface is included, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) colour and 178°/178° viewing angles are specified. A 60Hz refresh rate features alongside Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync with a 40 – 60Hz VRR range. A flicker-free WLED backlight offers a 350 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 95% DCI-P3 colour gamut. A ‘Reader Mode’ Low Blue Light (LBL) setting is included to provide a more relaxing viewing experience. The monitor will respond to HDR10 content, allowing the colour gamut and 10-bit colour processing to be potentially put to good use. This is a low level of HDR support shy of even the lowest VESA DisplayHDR certification level and doesn’t require a high luminance by HDR standards or local dimming.

Hardware Calibration is supported using the manufacturer’s ‘True Color Pro’ software and a compatible colorimeter. A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified, which as usual should be taken with a large dose of salt. ‘Dynamic Action Sync’ (DAS) low input lag operation is included. The stand offers tilt, height and pivot adjustment. It attaches centrally via a quick-release mechanism and can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes for alternative mounting. The ports are located in a recessed area to the right of this and include; USB-C (60W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), DP 1.4, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and DC power input (external ‘power brick’). 5W MaxxAudio stereo speakers are included for potentially fairly powerful sound output.

Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$550 USD.
