Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great monitor, but your mileage may vary - big variances in quality! Note - since I've tested two screens, first two photos are from first (worse) one, and rest are from second (best) screen. This glorious 32 inch 4K screen is looking absolutely gorgeous and sweet spot in size vs. resolution for me - I use 200% scale in Windows so non-dpi aware apps are pixel doubled - no blur! Also games which do work in 4K looks absolutely stunning. And ones which are too demanding I run in pixel doubled 1080p - again, no blur at all. However, it seem to suffer from variance in quality per unit. Sadly, yet another victim of most manufacturers quietly adopting this ridiculous "panel lottery" policy. First screen I've got was manufactured in February 2016 and it had quite many issues: - Stuck red pixel, and, unfortunately pretty close to centre of the screen. Also I know that red stuck pixels on Acers tend to multiply over time so not taking my chances - Back light bleed in bottom right corner. Certainly not IPS glow since remains visible from long distance (IPS glow also present in all corners but much more tame). This bottom right corner I've just kept noticing on any dark parts of games I've tried to play - Monitor sometimes (albeit very rarely, about ~once in several hours) lost DisplayPort sync for single frame. This appears as very brief "corruption flash" of the half of the screen. This happens with monitor's own displayport cable, which appear to be good quality Amphenol cable, so its very unlikely cable's fault. Half because this panel uses 2 display controllers for each half and only one loses sync. I've checked and immediately found plenty of reports of other people noting this in feedback - trying with different GPU, cables, no luck. However, Acer just never responded to this issue - and since its very rarely occurring they've seemed to adapt the stance that it was never proven to exist. - Speaker quality was horrendous. Seriously, I think you actually have to make effort to make them sound that bad - worse than headphones just lying on your desk. I can't even comprehend what people were saying when watching Youtube videos. And yes, I am not expecting good speaker sound from monitor speakers - but this just unusable. In comparison even Acer's own Z35 (which is cheaper) has way better speaker quality. My laptop speaker with closed lid were miles better sounding. There is no excuse for that, and this was not a defect since, again, plenty of reviews noted this. - IPS glow was very pronounced, and, due to size of screen became visible in all 4 corners at normal viewing straight distances. I assume this is what a lot of people mistake for "backlight bleed". However this piece definitely had a bleed too - since I've also tested it from long straight distance where glow disappeared completely (but bleed still didn't). To be honest, by then I have became pretty disillusioned with Acer as brand since I also tried Z35 and had to return it due to different reason (bad black smearing). With this one I have decided to try to get a replacement - which took time, but monitor has so much potential if possible to at least get a decent screen (I was willing to live with bad speakers and rare signal loss). So now I have received a new one, this one manufactured in April 2016. This one is a lot better and I am going to keep it: - No bad/stuck pixels at all. - Back light bleed is much more tame, just a little bit non-uniformity in the top left corner. IPS glow is much more bright than that - and just have to be accepted. - DisplayPort desync/corruption flashes still happened, but somewhat rarer - by now I've noticed them roughly only once a day. - Speakers are still horrendous, unfortunately. But screen is so awesome so I just going to live with using my laptop speakers. In my opinion Acer should just stop trying to cut their prices so much. I would have gladly paid 20% more for such monitor if only it would be possible to get one without issues and save time & nerves. Premium line should have *true* premium quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic monitor and looks amazing. I upgraded to this from a rather poor 23.2" TN monitor dual-screened with a 19" 4:3. Boy what an upgrade. I was like a kid on Christmas morning when DPD delivered it. For gaming, I knew it was going to be a struggle for the GTX 680 to cope with modern 4K gaming. You will need something strong (980Ti+) to get the most of it. Works great for older games though. For the desktop experience, the 32" of space works well as a substitute for dual-screen (but prob not as good as an ultrawide). I do a lot of video and photo editing and I am able to snap windows into 4 quadrants and still see what's going on in them. It is super bright, strongly vibrant, and easily adjustable if you find it is too bright/dark in some cases. Makes any game looks really alive. G-sync works really well (make sure you have the latest GeForce drivers and a 6xx series or above). It can only cope to 60Hz (fps) at 4K due to bandwidth, but that's more than enough in my opinion. Comes with a USB3.0 and DP cable, so don't buy extra (as I did). And above all it just looks devastating on the desk - a really good design. I was worried it would be too big to be an average desktop monitor, but pushing it to the back of the desk seems to be comfortable without having to move my head around to see the corners (just over half a metre between me and the monitor). The only main downside is one in which you will get with most IPS monitors, and that's backlight bleed. Fortunately on mine, it seems to be minimal and generally even, but it is indeed noticeable in dark situations. The pay-off though is this will outshine your average TN monitor and the image quality is likely to be much sharper and brighter. One thing to consider; if you plan to use HDMI, it's version 1.4, which means lower 4K bandwidth (think limited to 30fps). DP is fine though at 60fps. Overall, very happy. It is rather expensive but you'll get far more enjoyment out of it than watching the money sitting in an ISA doing nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for 4K gaming and general PC use I have now used this monitor for 3-4 weeks and it is hands down the best monitor I ever had. I should add that this upgrade to my gaming rig also included a Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card. The 32" size is just right for 4K resolution (you can still read text etc. just fine without any upscaling). The G-sync works really well I am yet to see any flicker in any games. For reference games played are War Thunder, GTA 5, Battlefield 4, The Witcher III, Star Citizen, DOOM, Fallout 4. In all of these, the graphics are awesome and in all by Star Citizen that is still in Alpha I get 60 fps 99% of the time, the rest is taken care of by the g-sync. To me, it is perfect for gaming. For normal desktop use, it is superb too I often have one side for browsing and the other for Word / Excel etc.. There is nothing not to love and once you have played in 4K there is no going back. It's like having your first HD tv all over again. Seeing is believing. for a full black display you get a little bit of bleeding, but in dark games like DOOM I can't see any, so practically it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent monitor, perfect for 4k productivity and gaming. I've owned many monitors over the years from 21:9 60hz panels to the 165hz PG279Q, but this coupled with 2x GTX1080's has finally shown me the future of gaming, solid 60hz frame rates at 4k max settings is finally achievable and this is the monitor to show you it. Great build quality, a massive step up from Acer of the past and a beautiful pixel perfect low IPS glow panel, really impressed, has pulled me away from my Asus fanboidom. If you want 4k for gaming and have the graphics to push 40-60 fps in your games this is the monitor to get.
