Really good price for 32" 144hz IPS Monitor. Now... There's going to be people that will not be happy with 32" running at 1080p, which is understandable if you've got the kit to push a higher resolution on a 32" and maintain a smooth frame rate. Although not everyone will have the specs for that, although might be able to make use off the 144hz aspect later down the line (Should be able to change rate in display settings to suit / or you might have a card perfectly capable of a higher res, but maybe not enough to get 144hz out of it)

If I were to buy this personally, it would likely be as a screen that I'm not sat close too. You could use with something like a Steam Link, or for consoles, if you prefer to sit back in a more relaxed manner, as opposed to sat at your desk. That's not to say that you shouldn't use it at a desk, plenty of people would be happy enough to use it in that way too. Different strokes for different folks...

If you have the PC to drive a higher res then this might not be for you. Even if you do and want a bigger monitor but don't want to spend much, it could be worth considering.

To be honest, I thought it was showing the price as excluding VAT at first, as it puts the price close to the last drop on this, but that's not the case (Had to double check) Either way the price is spot on for what you're getting here imo.

Sounds like a great deal assuming that the monitor will last at least 3 years.

Resolution won't be much of a problem unless your very picky i`m a hardcore gamer and have a 35 inch screen at 2560 x 1080 res and it love it for both games and work admittedly that has a slightly higher dpi 79 vs 68, but i paid alot more than this.

Same res here on a 29" Ultrawide, pretty pleased with it. Whacked the refresh rate upto 75 and away I went.
OP, you know 144Hz at 1080p will be harder on a GPU than 60Hz 2560x1440 right? :P Now compare it against 144Hz 1440p and yes, this is easier to drive.

Yep, obviously you can change settings around to suit, so you could still have a large IPS monitor for a good price and just tweak stuff if you haven't got the grunt I know a lot of people would look at higher res on a bigger monitor such as this, so this could slide in there and be set up for something not as powerful if needs be, then if you upgrade later, you could change stuff again. Lots of scenarios I guess though. Clarified it in the OP now, but fair point)

I got the ElectriQ 4k 32inch monitor, stunning image quality for the price. The colour was a little on the reddish side at first, then I changed to the sRGB setting in the monitor and all colours punched up perfectly, Not sure if it's the same on all ElectriQ monitors but thought I'd mention it? I don't play games on it but its great for video editing, in fact I'm considering buying a second as a live view monitor

Personally I think the AoC 1440p at 75Hz is a better deal, but if you want a high refresh rate and don't mind the low DPI then this is a good price.
ok well if ur gamer dont buy this, there are sht ton of ghosting in every electriq model i bought it and sold it within month
I think this is more aimed at pc gamers who don't use a desk e.g. they sit on the sofa with a lapboard. So if you are that person this is a excellent deal. If I was buying a new console monitor I'd buy a higher resolution one with a 60hz refresh rate, as new consoles aim provide 4K 60 or 30 fps gaming, so the 144hz feature is pointless for consoles.
My mate bought this, it's getting sent back.

Cons:
Colours are crap out the box, can be made OK with some tweaking.
Lots of ghosting.
Res is just too low for a 32" (68DPI) unless you sit 5+ feet away.
Stand has very limited adjustability.
Cables that come with it are very short (although at least they include them)

Pros:
Looks good if you don't mind the white, very slim.
Stand is all metal and easy to connect.
Lots of connections (DP, HDMI and DVI)
any suggestions for a monitor to be used for xbox gaming and pc use (both gaming and work) It will be on a desk so I think 32" would be too big especially at that resolution. I was thinking 28" 1440p might work well for both but there aren't many around.

Considering most people use larger 1080P televisions, then 32" @ 1080P will not look bad unless the monitor has a low quality picture.

it's more about being 1' away from the screen. I dont think it will look bad for gaming but pc work might look a little silly
There seem to be a lot of 'deals' on here at the moment from Laptops Direct. What are they like to buy from and more importantly returning stuff? Cheers
Hd? 'Vomits'

Its the opposite, hz of the monitor does not put a strain on the GPU. It's merely a threshold of what the GPU could run at if the monitor has G-Sync/Freesync techology to stop the GPU exceeding the refresh rate the monitor. The main deciding factor is the game and the resolution it runs at. i.e I could be playing rocket league at 100fps on a gtx 1080 at 1440p and it may not even stress it that much. But say a game like Crysis 3 that game is very taxing game due to the engine that it runs on, you could be again running crysis 3 on a gtx 1080 but only get like 50fps depending on the settings you of course.

It's true that framerate and monitor refresh rate do not have to match. It's massively beneficial if they do though so if you buy a 144Hz monitor you want your GPU to be able to maintain 144fps in game constantly. That is where the extra load of a high refresh rate monitor comes from, a new higher minimum framerate.

Playing rocket league with double the resolution at a given minimum framerate is about as taxing as playing at a given resolution while doubling the minimum framerate.
This is a top quality hot deal post. Thanks OP!
