Gone up by £2 after I posted. Not sure how long it will stay at this price so if you're interested I'd buy soon!
Damn. Bought at £300 a few weeks ago, after my previous monitor died. Excellent deal.
Sorry to hear that Ashe.

As you have one can you just confirm the monitor stand does allow you to pivot the screen into portrait. Some specs confirm this and others don't but it seems that the UK and US models are identical so I'm assuming the one you have does but it would be good to have confirmation.

How would you rate the monitor for the benefit of other purchasers? I'm assuming fine but not great for gaming but otherwise mostly good even with the VA rather than IPS screen? I think this must be the best price for a 4k 32" monitor so far.
It ships with half of the stand in portrait, and the installation pictures show to rotate it to landscape to put onto the other half of the stand. When I was looking, it seemed to say the monitor shouldn't actually be used in portrait, so I haven't tried (and there wouldn't be much clearance, if any).

The monitor seems fine so far, not really done any gaming yet. Angles are fine with VA when sitting down, not concerned that colours are off when looking at a angle (although angle isn't so much of an issue, more when looking at a different height). Am happy with it, although it's slightly annoying that it turns off the screen and can't use the controls when it can't find a display input, which makes it annoying switching between devices.

... tempting ... Or wait till black Friday for an IPS ... Arghhhh
Ashe, if the stand is the same in all countries (it seems to be) then viewsonic.com/us/…tml says:

ERGONOMICS

HEIGHT ADJUST 100 mm / 3.9 in
SWIVEL 90º
PIVOT (RIGHT/LEFT) 90º / 0º
TILT (FORWARD/BACK) 5° / 15°
DuWolfy, I'd guess this is better than some cheap IPS panels so although not perfect is still probably the best bang for the buck you'll get at the moment. Who knows what offers will be around for Black Friday. Last year the period after Black Friday (a few weeks later) had better deals that the long weekend itself.

Yep - however the manual says this unfortunately:

" *XG3220 90˚ panel rotation is intended for packaging purposes only. The panel should not be rotated once it has been attached to the monitor base."

Thanks Ashe, this does seem to follow the confusing contradictory advice given for the pivot feature and the fact that no portrait image of the monitor is provided by Viewsonic. I wonder if they are not promoting using it in portrait for some reason. I've queried with them direct and I'm awaiting an answer.

Yeah I'm still tempted esp with the HDMI 2.0
How would this be, for watching youtube and streaming services. as well as some casual gaming?
Is a "Gaming Monitor" alright for someone who has no intention of playing games? My main use would be working from home - spreadsheets and the likes. So the potential real-estate with so many pixels makes it very appealing!
Thanks op, perfect timing ordered for my youngest lads birthday !

Absolutely. For your money, this is probably the best way to go 4k at the moment. Does not make a difference that it's 'gaming'

This isn't really a gaming monitor despite the marketing. It's not got a good response time and it's only 60hz.

For producitivy this would be a great choice, as long as you're not working with colour-sensitive work (photoshop etc).
Agree with other comments above. The best market for this monitor is a casual gamer looking for a 4k screen at a low price for general productivity. It's also not super budget so although low price the product is probably more mid-range in quality. If gaming is main priority then new 4k monitors at higher refresh rates are on the way later in the year. Seems also a good option for connecting game consoles based on reviews.
Amazon price matched. Just ordered 2 and sending a similar Benq EW3270U monitor which I purchased on Friday back.
Smouser, would be good if you could provide a comparison once you receive the Viewsonic. I'm assuming the Viewsonic is better and cheaper but it would be useful to other purchasers to have your opinions first hand.
Yes I will do. The 2 screens use exactly the same panels according to displayspecifications.com/en/…fec the difference will be between the manufacturers of the monitors of how they implement the software processors etc. I suspect the BenQ might be slightly better and I prefer the BenQ's look and thinner bezel but because these Viewsonics was such a good price I could afford to get 2 instead of 1 BenQ. BTW out of stock at amazon now, only third party sellers.
Edited by: "Smouser" 24th Aug
Thanks Smouser, I look forward to the comparison.

Having received the monitor it comes with a EU lead but it is a common lead that I could replace with a UK version from home. The stand has nice ergonomics way better than most at this price or below but it doesn't suggest putting into portrait is a good idea and I'm still awaiting feedback from Viewsonic on this subject. Monitor looks good and not too cheap. I have an issue with the signal coming in and out but may be the laptop/cable I'm using, will need to test more.

Hi,
Did you buy from ebuyer? Was there a UK adaptor? And is the plug a normal pc kettle lead?
Both of mine is coming tomorrow, I could have had it delivered today with prime but we were out most of the day so I elected for Monday delivery.
Thisooks very tempting, rarely game anymore but could use the resolution. Just unsure if it will fit on the desk!

Edit: can anyone explain why the displayport works at 240 if the screen only does 60?

Edited by: "tek-monkey" 26th Aug
I got my 2 screens today. I set one up next to the Benq EW3270U and with my untrained eye I could not spot any quality differences. The colours were slightly different but they always are on different monitors.

A few quick thoughts.
1. The Viewsonics's stand is vastly superior, allowing you to adjust height swivel and tilt where the BenQ only allows for tilt.
2. With the bundled Display port cables on the Viewsonic I could not activate HDR in windows, only when I connected the screen with an HDMI cable did the option become available, it might be something to do with my GPU or the bundled Display port cables.
3. The Viewsonic's only came with a euro power plug.
4. The Viewsonics use a "power brick" similar to a laptop charger which might be in your way or unsightly if you do not have a place to hide it whereas the BenQ use a kettle style lead which plugs directly into the monitor.
5. The monitors are basically the same and I don't feel the extra £100 the BenQ cost are worth it.

I took a couple of photos, one with the BenQ and the Viewsonic and the other with the two Viewsonics.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase and feel like these monitors are a massive bargain.

@Mr.Q Yes I also got an EU plug from Ebuyer. I guess this is what comes with the monitor.

The monitor is 60Hz for DP or HDMI.

The stand *can't* to used in portrait mode unfortunately but as said is otherwise excellent.

My monitor has a fault where it loses the signal/shuts off intermittently which I could not resolve. Ebuyer accepted the return and waiting for pickup. Otherwise I was very happy with the monitor.

@Smouser I assume your monitors didn't suffer the same issue? Did you just replace the EU plug lead with a UK one or use an adaptor? Thanks for the review.

For anyone still considering a purchase it's your lucky day as with the ebay offer on with a 15% discount you can now get this monitor slightly cheaper still at £200.92 (-£11). I haven't created a new post as I'd rather those contributing to this thread having best opportunity to buy (4 sold, 9 available at the moment) should they wish.
Yes I also received euro plugs but I bought mine from amazon. I went on chat today to complain about the euro plugs and they agreed to give me a "once off" refund of £15 which I could use to purchase a lead. At first they wanted me to return both monitors but luckily they saw sense and went with my suggestion. The lead you require is a C5 style lead and the cheapest on amazon with next day prime delivery is £4.95 each. amazon.co.uk/ABC…8-1

Reference your monitor turning off/losing signal does it happen a lot or only when it switches between "normal" and HDR mode? Mine goes off for a second or so when it switches over to HDR and vice versa.

Thanks for that! Was eying up the £20 M&S voucher at vouchercodes but I'd prefer to pay less (vouchercodes.co.uk/ebu…com).
Damn it's big, and I was already on a 27"!

Already noticing the difference from my IPS, but I think this one just needs setting up right. I'll have a play.
