Dont do it.
Gigabyte's support is horrible and RMA is illusory. I had the 32 for all of 35 days, then the backlight started failing.

Gigabyte doesn't do return shipping on RMAs. The return shipping quoted to me was $300... Basically if your monitor is broken, their opinion is F.U.

Buy at your own risk. Wish I had known.

It's only an 8 bit panel, no speakers (if that matters to anyone idk) and very rarely the screen blacks out for about 2 sec when there's a big fluctuation in framerate (assuming it's the freesync trying to figure out what's going on) but I mean very rarely. Had the same issue with my last monitor so I don't think it's anything wrong with the panel itself, probably my 580 not keeping up.

I haven't tested the HDR, I really don't know how and I didn't buy it for the HDR. From what I've heard the HDR 400 rating isn't very good lol.

The stand is pretty good, but there is a bit of wobble. Nothing that changes the position of the monitor though, just wiggles a bit if you bump it.

Personally I would have liked to have had some better cable management in the rear and swivel on the stand, but I got my 32" for $365 when it was on sale so I'm just being picky with those last two gripes.

I have the 32" version of this monitor, it's awesome. Runs freesync super well while I'm gaming and there's little to no smearing even in the darkest areas. I need to get a better GPU to run the full 1440/165 but with my 580 I can get around 90FPS in most games and even that is super smooth.

I assume RX580 at 1440p, you have to tone down some graphics settings at least with recent releases
