Where? Where?

Now seriously, the monitor in the OP may be fine for some people, everyone has different needs, that's right. But things like IPS (if you compare it side by side with TN you will see the difference) and a higher refresh rate are nice. Personally I don't care that much for resolution, I am fine with 1440p at 32", I would not get a 4K yet until my graphics card would support it at 60 fps (I "only" have a 5700 XT), and I don't want to look at an interpolated screen.

Purchased this monitor today for work mainly. I am not a monitor enthusiast so to speak but it looks sleek. The 2k resolution is great for office productivity, not too small or big. Also watched a movie and the picture is sharp, colours are good, and I didn’t notice any shadows in corners.

Reminds me of the Asus VA32AQ deals back in the day (same specs I think), guess it's still solid for the price.

NOT EVERYONE NEEDS THOSE SPECS!!!!!!!

*sigh*
I think it's more about people here often only see 4k and assume it's a great monitor when it might not be. No one here is expecting anything crazy for $300, but it's still worth pointing out weak points of a screen.

300 nits is bright enough for me. Sure, it's nice to have higher, but I don't use my desktop computer outside.
(Maybe I should moan about colour gamut on every monitor thread. "Lord, this doesn't have 100% NTSC coverage!" :D .)

BTW, 2k is some ultrawide resolution: 20?? x 1080. QHD (or WQHD) is the proper designation for 2560x1440.

yes educating people that might not know the difference is not bitching

Lol, i’d pay 1000$ for a 4K IPS 1ms 144Hz 32” curved. The technology just isn’t there yet..

I prefer VA panels for the contrast/blacks, but you do get colour-shifting when viewing from an angle. I only had a 22" screen and some colours became warmer on a angle, but nothing to complain about. Don't know what it would be like on a 32".
