The LG 32GN650 B has a nice V-shaped base stand, which serves as the monitor, a stable foundation to sit on. The stand is well ergonomically designed; the monitor can pivot, tilt, adjust in height; however it cannot swivel. When you move the monitor to its highest heights, you may experience wobbliness; however, not to a significant level.

If you decide not to go with the default stand, you could always opt-in for a 100x100mm VESA mount.

The brightness levels are also consistent throughout gaming and viewing other multimedia, but it doesn’t fully hit 350 cd/m² levels.

In addition, the HDR 10 will provide you outstanding brightness, along with decent HDR color gamut coverage. Color gamuts are decent at their best due to their limited spectrum of colors.
