I got the 27in version of this back on the treasure truck deal a few months ago. It was the final culmination in searching for a new QHD monitor. I tried many brands and all had fatal flaws or dead pixels (why dead pixels are still being allowed to make it out of the factory is beyond me).

Obviously moving from one size to another in the same line of displays can mean a whole different panel manufacturer or issues present on one but not the other - I'll say what I can about this line.

It's no frills and frankly, that's what I want. It has specs you'd care about in a display - variable refresh rate, a high refresh rate, good colors and accuracy, good brightness, multiple stand adjustments, and a good resolution that can be reasonably pushed by mid level GPUs for gaming.

Things that may not be as good - the HDR feature on my 27in is... it's there. It's horrible. Leave it off. Some of the features to help ghosting shouldn't be turned all the way up, but they do help (I think it has 4 levels of settings and 1 or 2 is all you need and beyond that it's worse). The colors and accuracy are very good for this monitor and the price range, but you won't be making Pantone color of the year with it.

Also, what this monitor doesn't have is the nice thing. It doesn't have RGB or some XTREME branding in your face! It doesn't look like a spaceship from your favorite sci-fi novel.

I did try a Gigabyte monitor and REALLY wanted to use the KVM switch function on it, but for some reason Gigabyte decided to invert the typical RGB to BGR and it's absolutely maddening. So few monitors have that still, so can't really say it's a miss. It would be nice though. Many mid-tier monitors and above have USB ports on them. I suppose this is nice, I can't 100% harp on it, but many netted you a total of ONE or two extra USB ports. I suppose having additional placement could help some set ups, but for me most have the USB port in just a bad place to help. And the fact you add a whole other cable for one or two extra USB ports... not worth it. Also, it's more points of failure in something you can easily execute with a USB hub, dock, or just buying a computer with a sufficient number of ports.

Anyway, good deal I say (assuming HP didn't go nuts and use some completely different panel/maker for the 32 over the 27)

Edit - these do have VRR, but are only FreeSync labeled. My Nvidia GPU recognizes it and will run GSync on it. If you HAVE to have a GSync certified (or whatever other tiers they have I can't remember) you will have to look elsewhere. But it is VRR and easily does it.

Got this. It's a $300 monitor. Colors are on par with others in this price.

I think it's a fair price point, but knowing that the 32GP850-B from LG went on sale for $300 maybe a month and a half ago; It makes this a harder buy.

Not going to find a curved IPS at this price. They are few and far between.

I have the 27in and it's a good monitor. Simple and clean look with very good features for the price. Missed on the treasure truck deal, but ordered it a week later after it made itself back to Front page deals list with albeit a little higher price.

I love their no question asked return policy within 30 days and if porch pirates steal your stuff, they'll replace or refund immediately.
