I see that there is another thread for a Staples deal on an Acer 31.5" IPS monitor with the same 75Hz refresh rate. The Acer has freesync as well.

Which monitor would be better for everyday use and occasional gaming? Both monitors are priced at $300.

I think it's usually first year they pay both ways, then you are paying at least one way from then on.

I like it a lot and find the resolution to be great. I would recommend just purchasing it and if you are not happy just return it. Thats the beauty of purchasing from costco:)

QHD 32" Pixel density is the same as FHD at 24".

32inch 1440P is perfect, better than a small 24inch.

What are the best online places to order this from? (as in, where should I be continuously checking for stock)

I am assuming that you are not close to a costco store or your store doesn't have this monitor. Costco.ca has this in stock every now and then for $300 but I always sells out fast so you should check every few days.

Can anyone chime in on how/if a monitor this large works on your work desk? Or people just using this for gaming/videos?

It depends on your definition of failure. Dead pixels can be an issue though.

I'm actually wondering the same thing. I've actually never had a single monitor fail on me although I really haven't had that many over the years. Maybe 5? Each was at least 4 years before I sold it or gave it away in order to upgrade.

One other thing to think about is costco gives a 90 day no hassle return on all electronics so this will cover black Friday and boxing day sales if a better deal shows up or if you are not happy with the monitor for any reason.
Yup. This monitor is the regular price if not mistaken at Costco, it's not on clearance. Because Costco states one year warranty without an extended warranty, I wouldn't expect them to honour it for longer.

This is a good deal, slightly less than what I paid my HP Omen 32 with comparable specs 2 years ago (HP is VA however).

Went by Costco a few days ago with the intention of picking up one of these LG 32's for an upcoming arcade build and the only sample they had was broken. Tons of artifacting and pixelations when all the nearby monitors looked fine.

Likely a lemon but still made me hesitant to pick one up. Judging by that one, extended warranty might be a good thing for those looking into this one. Told the guy working that area to swap it out with a new one if they hoped to sell any.

Now considering a 43" 4K TV instead. Only thing I preferred on the LG monitor was that the screen is a lot more matte than a TV. Size wise, I'm kind of torn since this will also be a gaming computer and the extra real estate might be nice when my Sinden Lightguns come in.

If you look closely at the picture I included, the leftmost blue/purple umbrella has red pixels in it. Much clearer in person however anyone having similar problems with theirs?
