Yea. 1080p on a 32" isn't horrible, but ideally you'd want at least 1440p.

It's still a decent starting point

It seems like you're not a "starter" but that's ok. 😂

If by 'starter' you mean someone who doesn't know this is a garbage monitor at a terrible price, then yeah, I'm not.

That's ok. I know you can build a better monitor. Good luck!

I had a 27.5 inch 1080p monitor. The image just doesn't look great because the pixels are large when you sit at a desk to use it. I would recommend going to 1440p.

Hmmm, tempted. Looking for a 32" monitor to put at the edge of my bed for lazy man gaming with a controller and to use as a TV.
Have a 1080ti running my ultrawide, but can dual to this for movies too from server.
Anyone know how the colors are on this? Thanks.

1080p on 32" monitor is garbage.... Unless you plan on sitting 5+ feet away from it.... Even on 27' is not ideal, but better than this... 1440p is a minimum for that size monitor used as a daily desktop monitor.

This is a pretty good deal!

And 'garbage' is relative. To some people, anything less than 1440p on a 27" is 'garbage', or anything with 60Hz is 'unacceptable. To me (and a lot of others), I can go much larger before needing anything higher than 1080p, and 60Hz has been just fine for most applications.

I use a 27" 1080p 60Hz Dell monitor for most of my office work, my laptop has a 15" 144Hz 1080p screen, my bedroom TV is an older 42" 720p plasma, and my sim racing rig has a 50" 4k 60Hz TV. ALL of these are acceptable for me.

Don't let people talk you out of a good deal because it isn't up to their standards.

It's almost an industry wide acceptance that the sweet spot is 1440p for a 32" monitor. Your list of TV's and monitors shows me you haven't had the chance to actually compare. So while yes, it is relative, it's pretty much a situation where you simply don't know any better.

This wasn't a complete list. This was a list of the 'mediocre' screens in use at my house. The remainder are relatively 'mid-range' 4k 120Hz TV's (true 120, not 'motion rate'). So while I don't have a high-end monitor, I have multiple high res, reasonable refresh rate screens to compare to. The 'sweet spot' doesn't have to mean 'this or it's garbage'.

Your screens being TV's, not monitors. I would say its odd to base your opinion about monitors when what you experience are TV's. I was also skeptical before, so just see it in person. The difference is huge enough to set your standards higher.
