When looking for a new monitor, size can be a primary consideration as an upgrade only makes sense if you get more than what you had before.
This beautiful 32-incher is exactly the kind of screen someone in the market for a new monitor should be looking at, and with good reason.
Bigger is better
The VG32VQ is much bigger than the 24- and 27-inch monitors most people are using today, it sports a 1440p resolution so it’s nice and sharp, and it offers an excellent refresh rate (144Hz) and support for AMD’s FreeSync adaptive refresh technology that keeps moving images looking great. There’s nothing not to like.
And because it’s an ASUS monitor, build quality is well above average and its bezels are hardly noticeable they’re so thin. This is important for anyone who wants to use several of these screens side by side, as smaller bezels make the separation between them far less noticeable.
Reviews website Rtings.com was quite impressed by the VG32VQ, saying “The ASUS VG32VQ is a good 32-inch, 1440p monitor with great gaming performance…” with “…an excellent response time and flicker-free backlight…”.
Great for mixed usage
The site rated the screen 7.5 out of 10, ranking it as a “Mixed Usage” monitor that’s good for media creation and gaming.
The features that received the most praise were the monitor’s “deep blacks” and excellent 1ms response time.
Areas where RTings.com didn’t rate the screen highly were for HDR gaming, which the monitor didn’t do a great job of supporting, and office productivity. The site rated these at 6.8 and 7.1 respectively.
Neither of these categories is a deal-breaker for someone looking for to upgrade their home monitor used primarily for gaming and light productivity tasks, however.
Overall the ASUS VG32VQ TUF is a very good, decently-sized monitor, and is well-suited for use in any gaming, media creation, and light productivity context.
It’s also currently available from Tarsus Distribution; if you’re interested in acquiring one for yourself or your clients, give your account manager a ring.
