Truth - re OLED... But 27 is a weird size. 1440p is optimal for it - but as an example, Sony has ignored 1440p recognizing that most customers are content with HD & 4K. 32 never took off because everyone shifted priority to fast refresh just as the 32 60s came out...but it's a good 4k size

With 144 Hz 4k becoming available at 32, I predict that the larger screen size will be attractive to the competitive crowd - given that a 1/3 larger (24) or 20% larger (27) image on screen and GPUs that can push 4k into the 100s are likely to be seen as advantages. (there will, of course be people who think they need faster refresh than 144 - but do you, really?). Anyway - if the competitive crowd jumps in, the fan boys, wannabes and kids with grandma's cc will help drive prices down for the rest of us.

None of which will benefit me - as I don't intend to wait two more product cycles :/
I think the competitive crowd will stick to 1080p and 1440p at 240 and 360 Hz before jumping into 4K 144 Hz. Partly because it's cheaper to have a GPU capable of running 240-360 fps in those games at 1080p/1440p than at 4K. Likewise people prefer that they have this small enough window to look at so they can see the UI easily etc. For most 32" is a massive monitor.

I do hope the 32" models become a hit so there is more competition, more panel models etc so prices go down and quality up.

32" helps me feel immersed in the game, but more than that, it's big enough for productivity purposes that I can have it as my only monitor, and thus free up a lot of space on the desk.

Have folks considered the existing (and available) Acer 43" 4K w/ 144Hz? https://www.amazon.com/Acer-CG437K-Pbmiiippuzx-Compatible-DisplayHDR/dp/B07Z1212CQ

Or the new Gigabyte https://www.tweaktown.com/news/7853...144hz-gaming-monitor-with-hdmi-2-1/index.html
The CG437K has no local dimming, and there is no information yet about a local dimming feature on the FV43U. May as well get the LG 48 CX/C1 at that price.

1440p at 240 and 360 Hz
I think the alleged benefit of 240 and certainly 360 is fully into confirmation bias territory. While I can't cite to any peer reviewed double blind test results... There are a bunch of YouTube vids showing that the jump from 144-240 is rarely proven

144hz+gsync is all you need in terms of motion smoothness. imho. more hz is better but 144 is just enough.

Diminishing returns. 60 to 144 is a 9ms per frame difference while 144 to 240 is only 3ms, and 240 to 360 is only 2ms.

Yeah that's exactly what everyone said when I bought my X27 at launch. It is now almost 3 years later and nothing has changed which is exactly what will happen with the 32.

In that three years, I sold my X27 after a year, got the non fald 4k144 10bit nitro then sold that for the AW55 that got destroyed, went down to a C9 LG oled, then a 48cx and now back to a PG27UQ + 48cx on the side

I've sold and repurchased a X27/PG27UQ 3x now like a doofus. One second I get tired of it the next I realize it's as good as it gets. The 32" version will basically eliminate all my major gripes (27 is for ants + FALD zones are a bit too big).

Really wished I kept the last X27 to hold me over since I paid $750 for it locally.

While those refresh rates are not going to translate into better playing performance (as far as ranking etc goes), they do translate into less motion blur and smoother, more responsive feel. I tried playing Overwatch with my friend's Samsung G7 at 1440p 240 Hz/fps and it looked and felt very good. Like with anything it's what things you value more. I'm in the 4K 120+ Hz camp as I play exclusively single player games with an emphasis on visuals whereas my friend plays exclusively multiplayer games so he values high refresh rates and framerates more.

Well - and that's what I'm getting at. A 120hz 32 inch 4k might be the bomb.

I'm certainly hoping for that

I'm like you, though - I like the visuals. I've got friends who started out having to turn down the visual goodies b/c their computer could not handle the shaders and what not... But then found themselves more competitive in something that to me looked like a ghastly arcade game - despite being a AAA title. I think, as you put it - it really comes down to what the individual wants out of it... And if the confidence inspired by numbers makes someone feel better (even though a test might show they're not, actually) - - well then who am I to argue against their 'lucky socks'?

I use the CG437K using one DP cable (so only 120hz) for about a year now at home and have a 43" Vizio M at the office. I really do not see the black crush that some people talked about on a VA panel on day to day use. I guess it also depends on what kind of games/media you play. I'm older so I don't play a lot of action games. The most action oriented games I'm currently playing are Armored Warfare, Mech Warrior 5, Project Wingman and FFXIV and I have not notice any black crush in them. Also, even with a 3080 you'll have to make a choice as to if you want to run your games at full 4K in high detail but only getting about 60hz or drop graphic quality or lower the res to run them at higher fps. There's some light bleed on the edges on both if you have a dark scene but I really don't notice it on day to day use. . I'm pretty happy with both but may end up upgrading the office one to a the ASUS PG43UQ once I start spending more time in the office again or I may end up getting a 50" QN90A as the price are very close (just need to see if I can rearrange things to use a 50").
