[Best Buy] Acer 32" 4K UHD 60Hz 4ms VA FreeSync Monitor - $399.99

Hopefully no one has beaten me to the punch.

$399 is definitely warm-ish for a 32" 4K60 4ms FreeSync monitor. VA is a compromise between TN and IPS.

Worth it for some.

God bless.

Just an FYI that this stand sucks really hard and it's a far better deal to wait for the Staples 32" IPS (same stand) to hit $299 and buy a $30-$40 replacement stand from Amazon.

Since the stand is identical for both... I think the debate here is 4k/60hz/VA for $399 vs QHD/75hz/IPS that frequently goes on sale for $299

Moreover, price matching Best Buy and using the $30 off $200 coupon would bring this monitor to $369

Which 32" would I go for?

1440p 75Hz IPS FreeSync > 4K 60Hz VA 4ms FreeSync.

I offer the latter for folks that favor resolution over the 'whole package', I'm not obsessed with ultra high PPI, retina is fine.

1440p @ 32" is borderline retina at healthy viewing distances.
4K @ 32" is solidly retina at above distance.

Bought one last week. Bought another one today, I use it for programing to work from home. No compliant. Not sure the difference between all these panels and don't think it would make a difference of using a 60hz unless you play games?

This thing says 100% sRGB but I'm curious as to what the Adobe RGB coverage is? It'd be nice if with the 1+ billion colors and 10-bit depth that this panel claims, if it also had 100% Adobe RGB. It would make it great for color work.

Yes, that's why I posted "Same Stand". :facepalm:

As for the second part, it's not even a question for me, as I won't use a low-end VA panel, as the color reproduction and viewing angles make work a chore, and this deal really only makes sense if you are using it for gaming 100% of the time, which is not my usage pattern.

Whoops! Read your original post completely wrong... My apologies.

I prefer IPS as well and QHD at 32" is just right for me personally... but I suppose this VA panel might appeal to those that weren't happy with the amount of bleed and glow of the $299 IPS.
