The UHD32R's overdrive is controlled by the Response Time setting in the Picture Quality Settings menu, and is preset to off.  The Response Time Off setting provides slightly slower than average pixel response times for a 60hz AHVA/IPS/PLS panel.  The long pixel transition time results in some obvious color streaking, especially with fast camera pans in a first person shooter when viewing clouds in a blue sky or white lights.  The Response Time On setting gets rid of most of the color streaking, but causes some obvious bright and dark transparent overshoot ghosting on color and shade transitions which the Response Time Off setting struggles with.  UHD32R's matte predecessor, the UHD3216R, offers much better overdrive performance which is far more competitive with the fastest 60hz TN panels like the BenQ Zowie RL2460.

The UHD32R's overdrive flaws will not bother a casual PC gamer, or most console gamers since it still beats most low-mid range TV's which also use LED PWM Dimming or flicker which increase motion blur.  Though noticeably slower than many other 60hz monitors I've tested, I still find the UHD32R to be acceptable for console gaming, and its overdrive flaws do not cause obvious issues with movies and TV shows.  The HP Spectre 32 offers better overdrive performance which is more competitive with 60hz TN panels, but it has a 20ms delay, is less accurate and can't play back blu-ray discs properly when connected to the PS4.
