Got this monitor in March for 379.99 and its been great. has good Resolution and 75hz response time not fast as some others which are 144hz but still good for this size.

Highly Recommended for AMD GPU users for Freesync

Anyone with Nvidia Card please note that This monitor works fine on Nvidia cards at 60Hz but some people have reported stuttetering at 75hz so something to keep in mind.

That AOC looks promising, I'll have to keep an eye on it.

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago for £285 from Littlewoods of all places (25% credit back) and I'm really impressed. Decent colours, no light bleed or banding and build quality is decent.
I've owned several AOC monitors and they have been pretty poor build quality and sub par picture quality. This HP seems to get decent reviews.
75hz 'gaming monitor'. HP you are comedians.
I've left it at 60, it's fine for normal people.
Is that advance wars bird68? great game

Yeah. No. 75Hz is great for gaming. But if you can find a 144Hz 32" 1440P monitor at £300ish. Post the deal.

It's also over 50% more expensive. I think the AOC is worth a punt.
Unless you're running an 1070 or 1080, you're not going be in the freesync range for this monitor at native resolution, and it doesn't support Low Framerate Compensation for when you're inevitably below 48FPS in all but the least demanding games.

I bought it at £299.99 from Amazon in August and while I'm not unhappy with the monitor, if I was offered my money back I'd probably take it and hold out for something else.

1070, 1080, FreeSync range?

You need an AMD card for Freesync. For the latest games, a 64 for max settings but with lighter games a 580 would be fine.
I had this monitor and did some extensive testing on it. It has about 50ms input latency, which is about 3 frames. I was coming from a 10ms ultrawide and I could definitely tell the difference (I'd miss-time my jumps in Dying Light, for example). There's also pretty bad pixel persistence, so fast moving images make everything very blurry. If you can live with these things, it's a good monitor. It also stutters at 75Hz on nvidia GPUs so you have to drop to 60. I personally got a 32 inch Viewsonic 60Hz IPS monitor and it completely blows it out of the water!

1070, 1080, FreeSync range?


Exactly. You can only operate in FreeSync range with cards that don't work with FS.

@mazymony Good luck getting a Vega 64 for under £600! A 580 absolutely isn't fine for the majority of mainstream games that have come out in the last two years, c.f. anandtech.com/ben…868 I also know that because I have an overclocked 290x that's roughly the same performance as a 580. It absolutely isn't good enough to stay in Freesync range at 1440p, even in older games like Borderlands 2.


That's also not to mention the problem with most higher end AMD cards where they struggle to maintain fps consistency compared to similar nvidia cards, going back to the lack of LFC on this monitor.

I've always bought AMD/ATI going back to the early 00s, but the 3 generations between the 2** series and Vega are a joke. Almost zero progress.

I just bought this monitor for £379.99 from Very, neglecting the fact it was QHD 1440p.

Videos and streaming stuff through my laptop looks great and it's quick and snappy when playing games.

However, I mainly use it for console gaming and as the PS4 doesn't output 1440p natively, it has to upscale 1080p which looks awfully blurry, almost looks 720p.

I could probably live with it, if it would have been a cheaper monitor but not for this price.

I've bought a 1080p curved Acer instead. ED322Q I think. £130 cheaper too, it was OOS orginally as it was the one I wanted at first so I settled for the Omen instead.

Also, for the 3 days I was using it I got terrible eye strain/headaches and I've read others say the same. Something to do with PWM (I think)
