[Amazon.ca] Samsung 32” Monitor 1440p 144Hz $478

Thoughts? In the market for a monitor, seems close to the LG deal from a few days back.

No freesync and no quantum dot.

Pixio PX329 is cheaper on amazon and has freesync.

FYI it only does 144hz max while Freesync enabled.

I have the 27” version I bought for $399 and honestly love it. Colors are great since it’s VA and refresh rate is excellent. I’ve never seen G-sync/freesync in person so I don’t feel like I’m missing anything because this monitor is great. But I’m no monitor aficionado so don’t necessarily take my word fully without your own research.

It is extremely well reviewed and since it is a G series, it carries a 3 years zero dead pixel warranty
Any more views on this one? I don’t need a monitor just yet (waiting to buy desktop on Black Friday) so can wait. But 1440p 32” 144hz gaming monitor is exactly what I am looking for.

I hopped on this deal during the Prime Day Sale. Pretty solid monitor for me, no complaints. I use it for both gaming and productivity purposes

Mine was about $40 cheaper, but not too far off

Free shipping.
Bought one, works really well.

Official specs:
https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-32GK650G-B

31.5" QHD (2560 x 1440) Display
144Hz Refresh rate (O/C 165Hz)

I would never suggest spending money on a "real g-sync" monitor anymore.

Every freesync monitor does GSync just as well now.


That said, $599 is a good price for this monitor.

Can't compare G-Sync with "G-Sync compatible":
- No Variable overdrive (predicts when the next frame will come and adjusts the monitors overdrive to fight ghosting artifacts)
- No ULMB (Ultra-Low Motion Blur)
- No overclocking (144 Hz max, no 165 Hz)

I mean.. overdrive and ULMB are both things that shouldn't be enabled anyways.

Oh, if that's how you see things, then yes, 100%, G-Sync = G-Sync compatible:-).

Stupid me, I enabled 165 Hz refresh rate in the first 3 minutes after hooking up the new monitor, and haven't seen any issues since, but what do I know? Nothing.

I didn't say 165hz shouldn't be used. That's a nice feature to have (though there is essentially no perceptible difference between 144 and 165hz)

All good. My point was - if you need to pay 3 times the price to get G-Sync - don't.
But if the prices are reasonably close, like $479 vs $600 (define close, right? I understand), then might as well go for the G-Sync.
