    What is Hardocp's opinion of this monitor?

    Good for gaming?

    Good for spreadsheets?

    Good for movies? Browsing the web?

    I know it sounds counter-intutive, but I almost think 32" might be a little too big for a desk. Although, I've done the dual monitor thing for years and never really noticed, until one day I arbitrarily removed the second monitor and realized how much space it was taking up.

    Which leads me to ask if 4k makes the font too difficult to read in a monitor smaller than a 32"? I can imagine it would acceptable on a 40" monitor, but I've seen 40" TV's and that's just way too big.

    You can't play modern casual gamesat 4k resolution on a gtx 750. You'll just be upscaling from 1080p.

    Why are you getting the sudden craving for a 4k 60Hz monitor imported from Korea when there are dozens of choices available at the same price with a US warranty? Aside from the half-assed claim of HDR, there is nothing distinctive here.

    And don't fee like you must be lassoed to that "perfect" monitor size bullshit. If all you use is modern applications, you can change your font scaling in Windows. You can find these under: System->Display->Scaling. It means you render the fonts/application windows at a higher resolution, making things look crisper

    You can adjust the scaling upward until you're satisfied with the size of windows and text on your new monitor.

    You might have to do some hand tweaking with your web browser, but in my experience running an HTPC on an LG B7, everything else behaves just fine (Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, Visual Studio, other apps).

    Because most webpages define their own font sizes, you have to force those if you want to view the web. Under Firefox Fonts, I force the minimum font size to 17. IT breaks some pages, but looks surprisingly good on [H].

    Because newegg doesn't have anything else in 32". Reading a few threads about this they are all claiming this is last years tech and that there's 120hz 4k monitors out there, and I'm sitting here scratching my head.

    I was also looking at the ViewSonic VP2780-4K, but I have a 24" monitor and 27" isn't much of an upgrade.

    Half of those are nearly a thousand dollars and the rest are crap. The Qnix is the only variable out of that whole list.

    At any rate, the question was not is this monitor good for me, but what does hardforum think of it. Nor is the question about other monitors. It's simply: what does this forum think of the QNIX UHD32R ?

    Doubt anyone owns it. The other monitors on there are cheaper from us brands.

    You know how I know you didn't read a fucking thing on that list?


    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/aoc-u3277pwqu-uhd-professional-monitor,5228.html - $577, VA HDR10 factory-calibrated.

    https://www.144hzmonitors.com/reviews/samsung-u32h850-preview/ - $580, VA, freesync, quantum dot back-light.

    https://www.144hzmonitors.com/monitors/viewsonic-xg3220-review/ - $590 IPS, HDR10, freesync (bsically identical to that QNIX with a US warranty).

    https://www.144hzmonitors.com/reviews/acer-et322qk-review/ - $430, VA 10-bit panel, freesync

    What, are you allergic to VA panels or something? They're all the rage for movie buffs and dark games since the contrast is so much higher than IPS.

    We don't think the QINX is a good buy because there's nothing distinctive about it. I've already proven that with my list of four monitors above, most of which have 10-bit color.
