Is the 32 inch one worth the price increase?

smaller pixel for 27 1440p. I have seen a 32 inch 1440p at work. good for older people who like bigger font. the smaller pixel is prettier to look at. remember the Catleap 27 inch ones? I got one before. very nice monitors. back then those were 250-270 bucks such a steal at the time when apple charge 999 for the same monitor. and the catleap can oc to 110hz minimum. this one is pretty good at 350 curved. curved on 27 is a bit unusual. not needed really.

Unless you sit far back from your monitors, I would save money and stick with the 27". For 1440p, a 27" display is the sweet spot in terms of pixel density.

If you can get past the limited stand and the lack of variable refresh rate (which is a fairly big deal for this resolution), this is a solid monitor for the price (especially with the Staples coupon). You will be hard pressed to find another 1440p 144Hz monitor at this price point, let alone a VA panel.

Note: the stand is 75x75 VESA compatible.

For me it absolutely is. I love the size. 27 was a bit small when I went with that last time. But obviously I’m in the minority. Compare 27 vs 32 in person or roll the dice.

I bought a 32 inch. Don’t really need variable refresh rate as I only play CSGO and my card can maintain 144 FPS.

Is it Gsync compatible or that is not needed because it's 1440p?

Is this a good monitor for someone who doesn't play games? My job requires me to work in Excel a lot (worksheets opened side by side)...I would also use the monitor to browse the Internet/watch Youtube videos. I currently have an LG Ultrawide 29" monitor (model: LG 29UM65-P) but would prefer a monitor with a crisper screen.

My budget is around $450. Would it be worthwhile getting the 32"? Should I get a 4K monitor instead or are they too pricey/not worth it? Are there any other monitors that I should get instead?

Thanks!
