Edited by:"Felicitous"Found 14th Nov
I got this monitor in September, paid a little more than this for it, so far it's been great to watch things on, the extra resolution on the monitor has been great for me, investing in a display port cable isn't too pricey either.

Quick overview found on site:
"1.28 cm (32 ") , 2560 x 1440, 16:9, 250 cd/m², 1 x HDMI, 1 x Displayport, 1 x VGA, 2 x Built-in speakers, 5 W, Tilt adjustment, VESA 100 x 100, Black"



Added the website specification link (scroll down select full specification) as a few people have asked questions regarding this.

23/11/17 - gone up in price a tiny bit to £232.69 which is still just under what I paid and I would still recommend.

If you want to play any games I would not recommend any 60 Hz screen.


Oh come on, how did anyone manage it before these high refresh screens existed? Completely fine, that’s how.

This is a decent 1440P IPS sceen at a good price, it’ll be fine for gaming

Mine actually came with this on the back

I don't need this. I have two perfectly good Samsung 28" 4k monitors.....so why am I ❔ tempted??

Weirdly enough, I need to replace my monitor. I have purchased this Dell Ultrasharp U2417HJ trustedreviews.com/rev…17h for about the same price at Amazon.

I appreciate that this monitor is 1440P and is slightly larger but has anyone got info on response time/build quality at all? I am running a 1060 and while I know it's a 1080p card, this might be tempting for a bit of "future proofing".

1060 is capable to run at 1440p if you have 6gb version

Response time is overrated, especially at only 60Hz. Also, your upgrade path could go one of two ways - increase resolution, or increase your refresh rate. If you play mainly action games/MOBAs/FPS games, such as CSGO, LoL, Dota etc, you would benefit A LOT more by getting a 1080p 144Hz monitor. However, if you play more eye-candy kind of games, such a the Witcher 3/Skyrim etc, you would probably prefer going for a 1440p 60Hz monitor, as these kinds of games would look a lot better at a higher resolution.

I know I didn't really answer your question, so I'm sorry for that, but I don't know much about this specific monitor at all.

This looks very nice, possible 72-75Hz refresh rate, I have the HP Omen 32 1440p and this panel does 75Hz, but once I had a 144Hz monitor and this was the thing! Gaming is so smooth on 144Hz, not even 75Hz gives you this perspective.
But for media, movies, editing, browsing, light gaming this should be perfect, essentially at this price point.

Cheers, OP.

I didn't realise it was wide gamut, I wouldn't have voted it hot if I'd known.

Does it have a decent sRGB mode?

I don't expect this to go up in price after black friday, maybe wait and see if this drops or there is an alternative that suits you

I'm actually running a 3 monitor set up myself, but every couple of years got a new one of bigger size, so in 2011 I had one 24 inch tn, i think in 2013 i got a 24 ips, which broke in 2015 so i got a 27 tn and then this year i was just needing the screen real estate for streaming and gaming and got this screen, my monitor layout would drive perfectionists crazy, 32 on the left, 27 bottom right then 24 above that both on a monitor arm, this was the only way to fit things in the space of course.

I would get a 4th at this point but i have no idea where I would put it.

It depends on the type of games, only thing I play on my PC is FM, strategy and MMOs. The high framerate would be wasted.

SC2 can't even manage 60fps if alot of units are on the screen!

14ms, basically its a dud if you want to game, but being ips its will have good colour reproduction.

basically it could be summed up
gaming = no*, desktop = yes, design = not bad.

*it can technically game but its really a bit slow to be taken seriously.

Its 3ms no idea where you got 14 from

Says 99% sRGB

I've got 2 x 144hz monitors and I think this is a steal. If I can sell my 2 x 24 inch monitors, I'd consider this one. Heat!

Good price. Black Friday is a pain in the rear though.

Got one last time. Check my comments on the last thread. Not gamed on it yet, but no dead pixels or sub pixels and it's really nice. A steal at this price, but unbelievably, this seems to be around the going rate for this thing. One other thing to add, if using display port you can use clickmonitorDDC to change brightness/contrast directly from your PC. In fact it'll work on most monitors but getting to the brightness and contrast settings in this monitor is a pain and this small free program is awesome!

zwarder2 h, 23 m ago

Says 99% sRGB


Yeah, but that'll be coverage rather than area. 100% sRGB coverage and area corresponds to ~76% Adobe RGB, so 87% Adobe RGB means it's a lot more than 100% sRGB in area.

That means either:

A) Your colours are oversaturated on everything
or
B) You have to profile the monitor and make sure all your apps are colour managed
or
C) The monitor needs a good sRGB mode so it can display everything coming from the computer in sRGB as intended.

Felicitous7 h, 25 m ago

3ms for gtg, yeah that's not bad. however its average colour change response rate is 14ms
gtg is what they tell you as its the fastest possible number and they love to bamboozle people with good numbers... look at 4k tvs and the amount of those that have a 50hz display but then call it something like 400hz true motion (marketing bull (poo))

many people don't realise but you can often get a better response time with a higher gtg but lower average.
the asus PG279Q, admittedly expensive and in no way am I saying this is a fair comparison, has a gtg of 4ms average of 5ms and max of 7ms. I used this example as its quite a good example and easy to understand and as I mentioned I 100% realise that this is not a fair comparison price wise, yes I wrote that twice now, but someone will be along to troll sooner or later and they can only skim so a better chance of them noticing it.

ok maybe I was a bit harsh calling it a gaming dud, its not bad its just not great,
its price really improves its mediocrity, for gaming its response is ok its refresh is ok, for a designer its colours are good but its resolution may be a little low.

btw its fine if you disagree I slightly do, I sacrificed gaming performance for ips colour reproduction and my monitors average response is 12ms (with a 4ms gtg) so average nearly as high but my max is 14ms whereas I couldn't get the max info for the VX3211-2K-MHD but similar viewsonics have a 20ms max.

TL:DR average and max ms is a better indicator, GTG ms is marketing not quite telling the whole truth.

Official specs here.

32", 1440p, IPS panel. 8ms response time on average with as low as 3ms with overdrive (YMMV so assume 8ms).

Is a 75hz panel but a range of 24 - 75hz is listed so could potentially be a freesync monitor but is best to assume that it isn't.

The most intriguing thing on the specs is that it claims to be a 10 bit panel, stating that rather than 8 bit + FRC.

But yeah... seems worth the asking price if you ask me. OP have some heat.

Great deal, shame I bought the benq 1440p ips monitor at 148£ a few weeks ago as this is a bigger screen

I'd trust display specifications more than the manufacturer, its 8bit +frc (but especially at that price).
DS also have it listed average 14ms, the manufacturer list 8ms typical gtg not average response (which is strange as its 3ms). gtg stands for grey to grey and doesn't take into consideration more extreme changes. in a gtg test its the time it takes to go from grey to white and then back to grey. btb (black to white to black) is often slower, btb is very rarely as impressive a number. average is self explanatory.

its not freesync either.

not saying its not a deal but its an ok monitor for an ok price. if you want a budget monitor its not a bad option.

Nothing played on the PS4 is above 60Hz.

Got this monitor thanks - in general nice, but needed to setup custom resolution in Windows10 2560x1440@56Hz using HDMI 1.4
... I cannot see a reason why would not be there ready made in the first place, anyone have a clue?

thats odd, I went with the DP output though as I have it on my GPU and should manage quality better or at least more easily
