Features like ‘DAS mode‘ and ‘Black stabilizer‘ make the experience even better for gamers using LG’s 32UK550-B monitor.

DAS Mode minimizes the video delay in games by outputting the image to the screen without passing through the frame buffer. LG states that DAS mode is automatically turned on.

Black Stabilizer makes it easier to distinguish hidden enemies in dark places and develop games advantageously. LG says that users can adjust brightness level according to their taste.
