Recommendation 31.5/ 32 inch monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I´m looking for recommendations about a 31.5´´/ 32´´ 144hz (preferably curved) WQHD monitor, which I want use for gaming and watching movies/series.

VA or IPS are okay, though I get the feeling that all 32 inch monitors are VA?

 

Thank you 😄

I've heard really good things about https://www.amazon.com/LG-34GK950F-B-34-21-Ultragear/dp/B0798Q8KG4/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=paulshardware-20&linkId=c579489036c0b74b9881cd53e5f93326&language=en_US

 

For my price range that's what I'm going to upgrade to soon

 

The big factors for me was HDR, and the refresh rate "1" Ms response stuff LG does

 

I think it is on the list of g sync compatible displays, though don't pin that on me, I can't remember for sure. If it is, it can't be at the same time as the 1 Ms response time, it would go back to 5ms response.

If HDR is a big factor for you, then you will be disappointed with that monitor. Very disappointed. There are VERY few monitors that will do HDR justice, and you can ignore every single one that says HDR-400.

Would you have a better alternative?

It depends what your priorities are. I think the monitor you've chosen is solid, although you could perhaps check out the MSI MPG341CQR as an alternative. Ignore the 1MS stuff also, it's pure marketing fluff. Read actual reviews, preferable TFTCentral.co.uk or PCMonitors.info

 

When it comes to HDR though, no monitor with HDR-400 will come anywhere close to providing an adequate HDR experience, so just don't expect anything there. You'd need to be looking at the PG35VQ or X35 to get anything near meaningful HDR in movies and those games which support it. Or a decent OLED TV of course, but that would mean 55" size, hardly suitable for a desktop monitor.

What does a VA panel have over the IPs for this kind of display? I'm guessing the corners don't have that IPs glow?

VA can suffer glow, but far less so than IPS. Viewing angles are worse than IPS also, but this isn't really an issue if you're sat directly in front of the screen. VA does offer superior contrast, but at the expense of some smearing/ghosting in games, more so with black transitions... this varies though, and some people notice it far more than others. If you check out thoroughly written reviews of any given monitor, they will cover this.
