This 32-inch monitor is more like a small TV: it's not only big but also has lots of features to provide stunning picture quality. It's based on the IPS panel, used by many top TVs that offers superior color consistency. The LG 32MP58HQ-P is not among the cheapest items, but as for an IPS-based monitor, the price is rather affordable.
The LG 32MP58HQ-P 32-inch IPS monitor has a native aspect ratio of 16:9 and measures 28.6 by 16.9 by 3.7 inches without a stand. Therefore, this ultrawide monitor will be a great choice for both home and office. The dimensions with the stand are 28.6 by 19.4 by 8.1 inches and the weight is 14.3 pounds.
Except for standard adjustment possibilities, like brightness, contrast, and so on, the monitor’s OSD menu also offers a set of additional features:
The 32MP58HQ-P is a monitor with Full HD resolution that offers a bright picture, covering 72% of the NTSC color gamut (a standard of color space). The display may lack naturalness for graphic designers and photographers. However, the viewing angles are unlimited thanks to the IPS panel that is a great feature for any multimedia content. In addition, the LG 32MP58HQ-P specs include an LED backlight that provides vivid colors and deep black levels.
The screen is glossy, but reflections are prevented thanks to an anti-glare coating. It means zero distraction in well-lit conditions.
The LG 32MP58HQ-P 32-inch monitor has a 60Hz refresh rate. Since LG doesn't promote this item as a gaming one, it's a pretty normal refresh rate for the price that can even appeal to the non-demanding gamers. The response time is 5ms.
The stand is shaped like a semicircle and takes very little space (the same stand LG uses for many of its TVs). Nevertheless, it's wide and heavy, as it's made of aluminum, providing a decent hold for the item. The stand also allows tilting the monitor forward and backward (–5°/ 20°).
The monitor has a multifunctional joystick, located under the LG logo (you can press on it to turn the monitor on/off and turn it left/right to control the volume level). Thanks to that, the unit keeps its simple look. Like most high-end monitors, the 32MP58HQ-P has a minimalist design, with a semi-matte dark grey finish. The bezels are thin, allowing you to focus your attention on what's happening on the screen.
All the connectors (HDMI 1.4, D-Sub, and input for headphones) are located on the rear of the monitor.
This monitor outperforms other models from the same price range due to the IPS panel since it provides an unmatched picture quality and is often used in more expensive displays. However, I wish it had a wider color gamut, so it would be perfect for professional use that requires accurate color reproduction. Nevertheless, it has enough exciting features for both home and office use, e.g. Reader mode, Black Stabilizer, Screen Split, etc.
As a conclusion of this LG 32MP58HQ-P review, I can recommend this model to anyone who wants a big monitor with a clear FHD resolution.
