Caped at 60hz if you use HDMIIve been trying to figure out for weeks why my monitor is caped at 60hz, I had to go threw the user manual to find out that any HDMI confection is caped at 60hz refresh rate. No where in product description or features on this sight or amazon did is say you can only get 144hz if you use display port. I have a asus strix 3 gaming laptop that only has hdmi out. meaning no mater what i do i can only game at 60hz refresh rate.
I feel LG has severely misrepresented this product and omitted material info about its refresh rate by not stating anywhere in the product info or stats that HDMI is caped at 60hz

Amazing monitor for gaming just lacks a little.I decided to build a pc and always wanted dual monitor set up. As a long time console gamer I've played on a TV and got used to large TVs and the slow response time and refresh rate. Since moving to pc, this monitor provided a good transition between the size, resolution, refresh rate and response time. I was playing on a 50" Samsung and now on his 32, it definitely feels smaller but still feels like a vast amount of screen real estate for pc. At 1440p everything looks gorgeous but as I'm used to the 4k TV console gaming I can definitely tell a difference however it is still beautiful and I'm willing to sacrifice the small details here and there for the great refresh rate. One thing I was expecting was speakers, there are no speakers. However, it may have been a blessing in disguise since I went with speakers and speakers make it more immersive to although it lacked speakers it'll open up the door for better audio options anyway. The light on the back is just a plus, I keep it on purple and it is beautiful ambient lighting.
Overall, it is like a 4.8 and would definitely recommend it to someone who ways a big screen for pc. Finding mounts are very difficult though.

any plan of making this monitor smaller to 24 or 27 inch?
32 inch is too much and too big for some people with limited space desk

Hi wilwen12691. Your interest in the LG 32” Class QHD Gaming Monitor with G-SYNC™ (31.5” Diagonal), Model # 32GK850G-B is greatly appreciated. Regrettably, we currently do not have any information about when or if LG has any plans to make a smaller screen size for this monitor. CES 2019 will run from Jan 8 - Jan 11, 2019, and LG will make announcements about any models that are going to be released for this year so if they are plans to release smaller screen sizes for this model, that is when you will get that information...^IFV
