Is this a better monitor than the LG IPS flat 32in one that pops back in stock here and there at Costco for $299.99?

costco-lg-qhd-32-inch-monitor-299-99-2390909/

MVA vs IPS
6bit+FRC vs 8bit+FRC
144hz vs 75hz
Curved vs Flat

I assume the ViewSonic is much more capable gaming wise. Does the 6 vs 8 bit matter much if I do light photo/video editing work though in terms of color accuracy? Contrast?

Mixed gaming, editing, media consumption use case for me.

I don't mind, but for those who care, this not an IPS panel. It's MVA (which have excellent contrast and good response time).

IPS better colour reproduction, better viewing angle, etc

The Lenovo deal for 32/34" with IPS for $299 was still the highlight for gaming monitor this year (need time machine).

For the specific monitors you listed:
Gaming I would use this ViewSonic, or even dark scene movie watching.
For media and everything else i woukd go for the LG.

Bruh I'm so conflicted on whether I should get this or not lmaooo. I'm in the market for a monitor like this, but it feels so wrong to just buy something without thought. Exactly how urgently good is this deal?

I'm so tempted because I'm looking for a WFH monitor to do my CS classes on, but I mean idk what to feel about a curved VA screen. They don't look as good as an IPS iirc, right? 144hz is really tempting though, I want that buttery smooth coding hahaha.

if you are in the market for one. this is a great deal. buy now think later and you have almost 3 weeks to think about it before it ships

The only main con I see is 250 nits brightness, which is the lowest end for monitors these days.

In my experience of a different 250 nits display, it was slightly uncomfortably dim in a sun-lit room. No issues when using in the dark.

Would this look good beside a 34' IPS ultrawide? I'm tempted.

I'm using a 26in normal flat monitor beside a 38in 21:9 monitor and its fine.. I was worried about that as well.
