Not bad. Pity it's not IPS as viewing angles will suffer at this smaller size. VA is fine if you're using a TV as monitor from a few feet away.

I just bought the 2K one from Staples (came to about $309 after tax and coupon). Isn't this a much better monitor and therefore a better deal and value for the price? Seems like a no brainer that I should return it and get this one.

Would this be good to use with a PS Pro?

I got the Benq 28" 4k bought on the last sale. It's fine and looks great and it's IPS neither. I can't even tell the different regarding angles.

I often show my screen to others, the narrow viewing angles are a problem for me.

Other problems with VA:
- Reduced Brightness
- Reduced Vibrancy

Blacks may be slightly better, but I view my monitor in a brightly lit room where IPS panels are stellar.

To each their own, however.

I have the same question, especially in regards to HDR.

I'm assuming this monitor is overkill if I sit about 2 feet away from my current monitor, yes?

Slightly overkill at 32", but you'll respect the fine grain sharpness at 2 feet. VA is a compromise panel, you might be fine with it, I typically prefer IPS.

IMO gaming monitors shouldn't be 60hz...

Acer from staples deal will have better colour and higher refresh rate, better for gaming. This will be sharper for text, that's about it.

Unfortunately, this panel is HDR "compatible" but not actually bright enough (300-nits peak) to display true HDR (1,000-nits)

Are there any reasonably priced 4K monitors with a higher refresh rate? Last time I looked I don't recall finding anything, at least nothing near my price range.

Thanks for the heads up.


TV/monitor shopping has gotten beyond confusing for the average customer.
