Monoprice 32in CrystalPro Monitor - 4K UHD, 60Hz, HDR, Aluminum Bezel, Ultra Slim, Height Adjustable Stand, IPS $399 Free Shipping before tax

https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=27772

32in 4K IPS
Fully adjustable stand (tilt, height, swivel, rotate). Not like those ones with only a few type of adjustments. VESA compatible
1 DP 1.2, 1 HDMI 2.0, two HDMI 1.4
PIP modes for simultaneous display of multiple inputs
One year pixel perfect warranty

This is basically the cheapest 32in 4K IPS monitor you can buy for new. Actually you would be hard pressed to even find a used 32in 4K IPS on ebay for this much that might not be a fake seller.

I have one since 2/2020. The only minor issue is an occasional screen flash that lasts for less than a sec. This is actually not limited to monoprice. Many manufacturers use the same panel. Has also been reported in Crossover, Benq, etc. Some says it's attributed to video card outputs, etc. Not at all a problem or dealbreaker.

This was on sale earlier for as low as $320. Then it was OOS for a while. It's a good thing monoprice has now brought this back! But given that there will be a fair amount of demand, you might consider getting it sooner rather than waiting later for a sale.

Until DP 1.4 is common in both video cards and monitor, you are not gonna see 4K higher than 60hz. not enough bandwidth to do anything above 4K 60hz 4:4:4 8bit RGB with DP 1.2 and HDMI2.0

Plus most video cards can barely do 4K 60hz right now anyway. Just not enough gpu power for 4K for most cards yet

I think their vivid monitor for $15 more was a deal. Sad I passed on that one though I kind of want speakers on my monitor even if they are crappy.

All morons aside that thumbed down due to description, is this a good monitor?

I have 2 1440P 32" Benq designer monitors but one is now flickering non-stop and needs to be replaced. This week I purchased a 1440P 34" Asus ultrawide and 4K 32" curved MSI but both have awful color and will be returned.

I was going to order this today: https://www.benq.com/en-us/monito...3200q.html

The monoprice is definitely a better monitor. It's IPS as well as being 4K. That benq is VA and only 1440p and also still 60hz. My friend I mentioned earlier got a 32in 4K VA monitor after we weren't able to find any cheap under $500 32" 4K IPS. He had to return the VA monitor because he couldn't stand the way it looks next to his other IPS monitor.

I am very surprised why so many people gave it a thumb down. Sure, it's not on sale for as low as it was in the past. But that was the past. EVERYTHING is more expensive after the covid lockdown. Here's the same monitor a few months ago:

But like i said, this deal is definitely worth it because it is the cheapest 32in 4K IPS you can find right now as we re speaking.

Hope that helps with yr decision

I tried 4k 32" this week but had to scale it which seems to defeat the purpose.

Understood. Maybe try to sit closer. A lot of the advantage of 32 in 4K is lost if you have to scale up. Once you get used to it, you won't go back.

Even if you do have to scale up, i think there is still advantage to 32in 4K. it's that you always have the option to scale back down. Certain programs might use bigger fonts than windows standard font.

Also for viewing graphics and pictures, there shouldn't be any reason why scaling needs to be done.

I am actually away from home right now on the road typing this up on a 24in 4K LG 24ud58 monitor at 100% scaling....lol... My face is about 1.5 ft away from the monitor.

I think their vivid monitor was a little overhyped and maybe a little gimmick..Sure, maybe the color profile were tweaked a little but it's probably still not where you would want to use it to replace a real top of the line monitor for REAL photographic work. For most people using it for just regular use, difference is negligible. The inclusion of usb C input on that monitor but is only limited to 30hz for 4K is a joke. that's no better than just another HDMI 1.4 port....lol... Meanwhile,, they charge you a higher price for that monitor...
