I just installed a LG 32GQ850-B using the rev c bracket and it worked flawlessly. I think any of the LG monitors have a similar if not the same case design and should work.Finally got my hands on a monitor, a 32GK850F-B, and I believe it'll work with this. I've just tried placing a preorder though and getting "This order can’t be shipped to the address you entered." - Are you not able/willing to ship to Norway?
Also, related: This monitor isn't in the monitor compatibility spreadsheet but a similarly named one is (32GK650F-B), however that one has the note that it needs a 100x100 sub-bracket. Is that the case for this?
Before installing, I kept the monitor out for a bit and plugged in everything I was going to use with the monitor i.e. ps4, xbox, etc.. and tweaked color/contrast position etc..just to make sure they all looked good before installing. Also set the monitor to turn on as soon as there was power.I should have used the monitor for a bit before doing the install. Turns out that at any non-native res, it will display a warning for a long time, but it can be dismissed permanently with access to the input joystick… that I now can’t reach without redoing a lot.
Couldn't agree more. It took me a while to get mine right and ended up using lego pieces to hold the monitor in place while I positioned and adjusted it so it'd be centered. I started by placing it face, putting lego pieces, then raising it to gauge how centered/off it was and readjusting. If I had a glass table that'd be a lot easier!The hardest part ended up being aligning the monitor within the Vewlix housing. Are people putting the housing down first, then the monitor face-down? Or the other way around? Or something smarter?
I installed mine upside down the first time as well. It aggravated me so much I removed the rear casing of the monitor and soldered in an extension to the little lg nub which now sits where the original vewlix monitor controls were. Pain in the ass but worth it.Installed my Rev C with an LG 32GP750-B. Works great.
- During the install, I somehow didn’t notice the cutout on one side of the bracket, and I ended up putting it at the top. Is it for wire routing? It actually might have been handy on the bottom for access to the monitor’s input joystick, but I’m not motivated enough to redo the install right now.

- I was hugely relieved too find that I can just use longer M3s + nuts and skip drilling M4 holes and countersinks, since I was afraid of screwing it up (har har). Unless the M3 route is not recommended, IMO it should be the default in the instructions, not drilling for the M4 screws.
- The Rev C came with four L brackets that I didn’t see mentioned in the instructions. What are these for?
- Do people transfer the transparent monitor “protector,” or is it permanenty attached to the old monitor?
Mine are held in place using the existing screws, but I guess you need those for the bracket.
Right. For the first part that's why I was suggestion you could make cardboard spacers from a printed template. No special tools needed, print at home or at a local office place, glue onto cardboard, cut out with a knife or scissors. Everyone should have access to that.The only problem is not everyone has a 3d printer or the same monitor.
