[Dell] 32" IPS Monitor 1080p - $249.99

$200 off, $250 is a decent price for such a large IPS monitor.
  • 60Hz
  • 8ms response time
  • VGA, HDMI connectivity
  • VESA mount.

BUT 1920x1080 resolution.....is that a deal breaker?

Anyone have any experience with monitors larger than 30" with only HD resolution?

1080p at 32......

even at 27 it is beyond acceptable

spend $50 more and get QHD at least

My 24" 1080p monitor is becoming absolutely awful to look at after getting used to 4K TVs and high res smartphones. I can only imagine this res at 32", you would need to have quite the distance to not notice pixelation.

I guess everything is plummeting with people using cheap 40" 4K TVs as monitors now

It depends who's the using it. This would be a good monitor for an older person with bad eyesight. Bigger monitors are easier to see. I bought my father a 27" 1080p screen this Christmas and he's so happy with it.

Thank you for the info. I have 24'' but I have to increase the font size scale on Windows to 115%-120% to be able used it comfortably. May be this one will be better for me

Agree. I bought my parents 27" 1080p monitors and they are happy with the large readable text

I have one. Look for the 10% off coupon for dell monitor and ebates.

Warranty is 1 year. The back of the monitor and vga cable is white. I dont like that my monitor look an apple. It seem to be made cheaper than other dell monitor. Must be another supplier for these monitors.

1080p is fine at this size.

The aspect ratio is 16:9, which is 1080p, so this is not a wide monitor.

Given a choice, I'll buy at Costco.

Their return is MUCH better than DELL. And 2 years warranty did make a difference.

27" 1080P Is is beyond acceptable for 60 year old parents

I sold it and upgraded them to QHD 27" with 125% scaling

27 inch 1080P is just possible/starts to enter into pixellation territory. My parents use it and they are totally fine with it.

I think 32" is really pushing it.

if you want big, cheap, 4k, BB still have the 43" Philips on sale for $550 for the last couple of weeks now. however that model is known to have some image retention issues but there are some reviews which also did not have that problem.

43" is not suitable for most ppl as a desktop monitor. A 32" would be perfect for 4K without scaling. I have a Dell 4K 24" @ 150% scaling. It's ok, but I prefer I didn't have to scale.
