Get your flame suit on. RFD doesn’t like FHD over 24 inches.

1080p gaming is still a thing for those with older hardware. This monitor is decently priced for its size.

Honestly in 2021 FHD should be called quarter HD.

I think with so many of us WFH, monitors should be classified as good deals first and gaming "compatible" after.

This is a seriously good deal.

There's already such a thing. qHD exists, not to be confused with QHD, which also exists. You just want to add more confusion to the mix

I actually saw this as well but I was afraid to bother posting it because people are so picky.

RFD community seems to shoot down any monitor deal that is non-IPS.

even for reading text, FHD at 31.5 inches is horrible.

Interesting, will have to try it out for myself.

I personally prefer (nay, INSIST) Dell P series 27".

What this guy said.

Its fine for watching vids and some games but not for productivity. In this case, itd be better buying a cheap tv.

I know that there are differences in eye sight and people's comfort with pixel density. But this monitor has a significantly worse PPI than an iBook from 1999. I know there is some snobbery about crispy displays, but this is a whole other level. Unless you plan to use this at TV distances, think twice before pulling the trigger. Especially since the 24" IPS version sells for less.

Minecraft is blocky, but not in the same way 1080p is on a 32 inch screen. Unless you mean minecraft classic.

Even for work this monitor sucks. 1080p gives you very little screen real estate if using Excel. Given it’s 32 inches, it’s just a waste of desk space.

Much better to get a pack of 2 1080p 24 inchers for roughly same price for work/productivity.
