LG gets ready to ship its 31.5" 4K printed-OLED monitor, and the first review is in

LG announced its first OLED monitor, the 4K 31.5" UltraFine OLED Pro (32EP950) back in January 2021. The monitor should start shipping by the end of July 2021 for $3,999 - and now the first review is in, by BH Photo.

The reviewer says that this new display is "astonishing" and "immersive" - but admittingly there are some trade offs (compared to other top-end monitors): lower peak brightness, non-variable refresh rate, connector choices, etc. The review says that the 32EP950 is "truly made for professionals" and will be a best fit for graphic design, image and video editing, and broadcast grading. This is not a general-use monitor, especially at that price tag.

The printed OLED panel in the 32EP950 is produced by JOLED.

Vincent Teoh from the wonderful HDTVtest YouTube channel has had a thorough review of this screen up for over a month: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ9M_bjF6dE

Yeah, it makes sense to consider a more clear separation of reviews (as articles) and video reviews. For example, I prefer reading with ability to quickly find info I’m interested in, and rarely watch video reviews since they are usually too long and info inside them is not quickly searchable/scannable.
