    The lowest price I can find is £399.99 so I guess you're technically correct -_-

    1440p on a curved 32in screen...yuk!

    No thanks, tried it last year with a 144hz AOC panel, Could only put up with it for a week before it went back. 27in for 1440p & 27/28 or (even better) 32in for 4K, that's it.

    Re: Gigabyte G32QC

    I'm with Baggsy on that. Higher res for the screen size would be better.

    Personally I'm all for the size and resolution, particularly as a gamer.

    Re: Gigabyte G32QC

    4k 32" @ 165 refresh for £400 - are you guys dreaming.

    £400 at 32" will get you a basic 4k 60Hz monitor.

    You might want 4k but not at this price point with these specs be fair.

    The price is irrelevant at this stage.
    The screen size and the resolution are the only two factors of concern, and this monitor is too big for the resolution it offers. We'd be saying the exact same if it were 27" and only 1080p.

    They'd have done better if they'd kept it around 27" to match the 1440p res, and it would still have been relatively reasonable for the price. But by going all the way to 32", the images will not be as smooth or clear as with 27".

    1440p 32" = 24" 1080p in terms of pixel pitch, not 27"

    24" is generally considered the maximum size for 1080p, so at 27" you start getting losses in image quality and PPI.

    Either way, it's still too big a screen size for the resolution, though.

    Re: Gigabyte G32QC

    i have this monitor, tbh i can't see the pixels from 60cm apart and it looks awesome. I had a 27 inch 4k before and I prefer this one. I get more screen realestate with QHD than 4k as 4k is usually displayed at 200%, unless you go for 100% then the text would be hardly readable.
