UPDATE: Asus VA32AQ sale extended to July 5th. June 29th to July 5th is a Boxing Day in July sale.

So this, in my humble opinion, is one of the best price-performance value-grade 1440p 32" monitors out there. I've been waiting for it to go on sale at $299.99 for some time... and we're finally here.

Calibration:
- Disable VividPixel (Ironically retains Sharp Text and Images)
- Use TraceFree between 0 and 100 to minimize ghosting in game

The monitor comes with a blue light filter option and an anti-glare coating.

Been waiting for this deal to come back but after thinking about it a bit more it might be too big for what I'm using it for. My desk sits fairly narrow so I'm pretty close to the screen. Maybe 2 ft away.

Solid deal on that monitor, though for work I'm waiting for a 34 inch 3440x1440 at around $400.

TVs have way too much lag for gaming in general. Most monitors are 5ms or less, while TVs the best are usually around 30ms (oftentimes way higher).

If you mount it on the wall, you gain some space back, Both in terms of distance to the screen and space saved on desk.

I'm surprised this guy isn't sold out.

The monitor is showing it's age, but it's a 43" 4K IPS monitor with claimed 5ms performance. Real world input lag is much worse, but it's still not unbearable.

This is the lowest price this monitor has seen.

3 units remaining.

There is also something called chroma subsampling to consider... basically due to colour compression on lower end 4k tvs, texts will not be as sharp vs on a 4k monitor... not a big deal when watching movies but it might be something to consider if you do a lot of reading on your computer.

This can lead to atrocious outcomes if you intend to use your TV, particularly the low-end Haier, as a productivity monitor (e.g. word, outlook, excel, number crunching work, webpage viewing, etc.).

Some TVs are good enough to rival monitors with 4:4:4 and reasonable input lag, but they typically cost much more.

Please notice that some of the products linked by the OP are sold by third-party sellers not by Best Buy itself (Best Buy market place). The shipping and return policies of such vendors are different to the usual of Best Buy (e.g., there may be restocking fees, etc.) [there are a couple of links to each seller's policies next to the price at the product webpage].

Take a look for example to the return policy for DCR in the image attached.

I have that Dell P2715Q for like 3 years now but I'd much prefer go with dual 1440p for the price.

27" is fairly small for 4K imho

Any thoughts on the polk wireless system or any other soundbars? Looking to connect my TV to it and use it for home theater but it says no HDMI input, I guess I could connect via Bluetooth. Anyone try that and still get proper surround?
