@ViotekUSA many moons ago, the ICC profiles were in development... have they been released?
kjling
We have switched away from .icc development and are looking in to pre-purchase calibration as well as hardware calibration options.
While current technology requires a HUGE investment in order to offer hardware calibration we are looking in to doing this in a much different (more efficient) fashion.
Offering a plethora of .icc profiles is not really user friendly and would simply pass the "duty" of calibration to our customers; which is the exact opposite of customer-friendly.
We are working on updating our current lines including upgrading the backlighting to decrease hot spots as well as increase our natural calibration and color gamut.
ViotekUSA
Honestly a v nice monitor for the price, only thing holding it back a tad is calibration.. if the colors and gamma etc were resolved at factory, I would recommend it to non-gamer friends looking for a big monitor. Blacks and colors need quite a bit of tweaking out of the box as it stands. Guess we'll just figure it out ourselves ...
Does it do alright for viewing Facebook? No one likes dropped frames
Looks very similar to the Asus ROG Strix.
I was looking at this to use with a N 1080. I have looked a lot at 35 UW and 32 monitors and G-Sync is just too damn high. A LOT of people and reviews say this resolution at 32" just has one problem...desktop their description was just not as crisp, clear etc one even said down right fuzzy or out of focus because of low pixel density. This was a review on the LG 850 that people rave about. Whats your opinion for desktop as well as gamin.
ps does this monitor use pwm for backlight? If so I thought almost all manufactures quit using it.
etrin
I bought this monitor about five months ago, and I can attest that the desktop isn't ideal at this pixel density, but otherwise this monitor is pretty impressive. This monitor does NOT use PWM. Games look incredibly sharp and smooth at 1440p, and videos are just as stunning. If you're a content creator, graphic designer, or editing documents on the regular, there are a ton of better options out there, but for a gaming monitor with these specs, you can't beat it at this price point.

32" 2560x1440 is ~92pixels per inch **(this monitor)**
27" 2560x1440 is ~108pixels per inch
While it may not sound like a lot it is slightly noticable.
For comparison:
32" ultrawide 3440x1440 is ~117pixels per inch
34" ultrawide 3440x1440 is ~110pixels per inch
24" 1920x1080 is ~92pixels per inch
23" 1920x1080 is ~96pixels per inch
22" 1920x1080 is ~100pixels per inch
21" 1920x1080 is ~105pixels per inch
Most common 1080p monitors are 23-24Inches and this is on par with the pixel density of those.
Why don't they show its price in AU dollars so i can see how much it really is!
SinyorDuckyMoss
Why don't you use online dollar converter? I'm Canadian and I still have to use it to get the real price for me.
As an alternative, you might check out the Pixio PXC32 or one of their other similar monitors. I don't have one, but they seem like a great deal, and (some) are cheaper and have comparable specs to this monitor. https://www.pixiogaming.com/pxc32
Blur180
Except pixio products are riddled with problems . Viotek seems to have a better quality control in place.
ServerSlayer
oh. that's too bad. Like I said, I don't have any of their products, I just thought they seemed like a good deal.
Is this in Canadian dollars? (449$) or will I actually be paying more since it’s american? I have never bought anything from Massdrop so idk what to expect. Will I have to pay border fees too? Thanks!
OhHenrie
The price listed is always in USD. Shipping and exchange rate mean that most drops don't offer any sort of discount for Canadians compared to Amazon or the likes.
Gamuh
Man that’s sucks. I guess it isn’t really worth buying stuff off of massdrop. I would be better off buying things off of Canadian websites. Thank you for the info :)
Is this monitor compatible with VESA mounts?
LolItsFlimsy
Says 100x100 VESA in the description.
BeerSultan
Oh duh...Thanks.
*** Comments on the color-reproduction / accuracy *** I purchased a Spyder5express just for this monitor. Out of the box, the color profile looks bad- you can just tell. However, with the Spyder & DisplayCal software, you can get a much better result. I do not know how to share the ICC profile but I will try. Do not expect any factory-calibrated IPS display level but you can get the best out of the panel. Hope this helps!
morningcereal
Any chance of getting that icc profile?
@B.Hutch The GN32LD has VESA-C75 (75mm x 75mm VESA mounts)
The specifications state 100mm.
I'm in Australia...... Still free shipping?

Samsung LC32HG70QQNXZA 32" 2560 x 1440 HDR QLED Curved (144Hz / 1ms) $499 free shipping depending on where you live maybe no tax too. Display Type - VA Curvature - 1800R not sure but I might rather have that. Personally I don't think anything on this site is discount heavily enough. buydig.com

Literally bought this for $424.99 with no tax and no shipping on the May the 4th Ebay sale. As much as I would like to give Massdrop my business, their price cut on most items in the tech community simply isn't deep enough to make it worth the purchase as of late.

Had to return this monitor :-( The PWM was giving me crazy headaches. I wish I would have tested it first at a store. :-( But, just wanted to say thanks again for the heads up. Also, the text on the monitor was blurry to me. Felt really odd using it for daily tasks (could be the PWM just causing the eye strain and thus blurring the text)
I see this monitor on sale for 499 from Amazon Prime regularly. Do Massdrop buyers have to pay shipping? If so, how much? Trying to decide if it's worth it to wait for the next drop for the $449 price tag!

You also have to take into account the tax that goes with it on Amazon
Mellowmarsh97
Managed to score it on eBay for $424.99 without tax or shipping. Worth every penny!
Already got mine. Anyone else in the bent stand club? I need about a third of an inch under one of the legs to get the screen level. :/
Hello, is says the drop is successful but I have not been charged yet. Can I have an update?
kniersbach
Ok, Ive seen alot of comments discussing the response time. 1000/144=6.944 repeating. Meaning any monitor with less than a 7MS GTG time will be just fine for 144HZ, unless youre one of those people that cant dominate your favorite FPS or fighting game without using your Sharingan for awesome visual recognition. You might notice it, but it shouldnt effect the rated 144HZ at all. Please stop spreading misinformation. 144HZ at up to 7MS GTG is FINE.
Not to mention, once the scene starts moving, you are unlikely to notice any stuttering when the response time is lower than the time the frame is on the screen (presuming VSYNC and constant 144FPS output). Even if you notice a slight delay before the scene starts moving, if youre actually focusing on the game and not scouting for delay, you wont notice it. I can tell the difference between 60/60, 85/85, 120/120, and 144/144. Make sure your hardware can push out a frame rate thats as close to the refresh rate as possible. If you can only get 100FPS@1440P in a game, then set the monitor to 100HZ before you launch the game. Will make things much smoother.

This should get you started the easiest way to know its working by selecting freesync mode on the monitor and you'll just get a black screen and then change it back. Then use the hack and turn freesync on and then it will work with no issues.
https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/cru-custom-resolution-utility-tips-tricks-and-monitors-oc-lcd-led-crt.410187/
CRU is 100% legit. Ive used it for a 1440P monitor that couldnt quite cut it at 120HZ, so i put it at 96HZ (didn't feel like switching between 96HZ for anime, and 119HZ for gaming). It forces the refresh rate to a user specified amount. CRU isn't a GSync hack, though. There's no live varying refresh rate with CRU, which is what GSync does.
Is there a way to get this shipped to an APO/AP address?
Gulltyr
Welp, i got an address off base to ship to, but it brings the shipping cost to $111. Which kinda kills the point of the drop. Oh well.
Is import tax accounted for in your shipping and handling fees for uk buyers
what’s your return & refund policy?

Good to hear VioTek. Man, I REALLY want one of these. . . I just have to find a Vega 64 GPU to push the 1440P for my games.
GLoBalReBeL
why a Vega 64? FreeSYNC and G-SYNC is too keep smooth frames at lower fps..if you have a 1080ti or maybe Vega-64 all that Sync shit is nothing but more input lag for your Keyboard/mouse/ controller ect..quick FYI 1440p 144hz on this 32in panel does take some GPU power for sure... example i avg 130-144hz on my 27in 1440p 165hz 1ms asus display.. i get avg 124-144FPS on this 32in. with all settings at ultra just to see what fps i could get. i turn a few things down only cause i hardcore fps games..ps i would enable G-sync and same fps but would feel almost slugish...4k 120hz g-sync would help but 4k gaming is casual AMAZING looking but casual
I'm currently playing on a 24", 1440p ,165 hz with a 1 ms response time. Will I notice a significant difference between 1 ms and 3 ms? This monitor looks like a good option for the price. I'm just still new to all themonitor technology.

haha very cool to see a company rep actually tell it like it is, and not use nonsense PR speak. I 100% respect you for that, and whether or not it's actually something your company pushes its rep's to do I am very impressed. Super glad to be supporting you guys ! can't wait to get this monitor :D I was the second person to commit hehe...
I run a 1080Ti in my main rig with the X34 predator, but am very much looking forward to having a non-ultrawide absolute beast of a 1440P monitor for some competitive shooters. I have been reluctant until now to pull the trigger on a 1440P 16:9 because I couldn't find one that was bigger than 27 inch that I liked.... I just find 27 a tad bit too small for my liking... Then I got a massdrop e-mail for this bad boy. I was sold instantly :D
Just a side note.. You guys should get this monitor out to some tech reviewers (preferably youtube) so more eyes can get on this thing! The first thing I did when I saw this monitor was looked for some youtube coverage of it... The only one I found was of what seems to be an earlier model of this same panel that didn't have the aggressive "gamer" style stand.
Phouse1
no you will not! i promise..1ms -7ms i tested alot and not even my hardcore pro friends knew if it was a 1ms or the 7ms display i have..they all stated feels like my Rig at home.
Yet another freesync monitor. Ugh

its a 144hz monitor man.. If you have the graphics power to push over 80-100 FPS at this resolution, I promise you that adaptive sync isnt going to be something you really notice much if at all.
I run a 1080Ti with the acer predator X34 which is G-sync but I ordered this panel, one because its a gorgeous monitor, two because its a great deal, and three because I wanted a secondary non-ultrawide monitor. Ive gamed on non G-sync high refresh rate panels before with my Nvidia cards and as long as you arent hanging around the 60 + or minus 10 fps area, adaptive sync really isn't doing much for you.
CoolGuyHere
freesync FTW man! 200$ less for the same with no G-sync yes plz! no sync is what they need to make lol.. i have used GTX cards on freesync displays for ever lol...if your going for a 144hz monitor i assume you have the power to avg 100fps then no need for G-sync or freesync- maybe AMD cards need the sync to feel smooth-- GTX 1080 for 144hz 1080P any sync on enabled is hurting the exp and the reason you bought a gaming monitor,
This actually looks like a great deal. Most of the owners I'm seeing for this brand are happy. You can set the monitor to 3 ms mode as well. The stand is a bit large but compared to Logitech g933 headsets and RGB everything, I don't see it being an eye sore. I've got BenQ 27" flat monitors with these specs but seeing a 32" Curved 1440p 144hz sounds pretty awesome to me even at 3 ms. I think everyone complains too quick. Look at what you're getting for the price. This is why Massdrop exists. If you like this monitor, this it's probably the best deal by far on it. Instead of nit-picking things you don't like that we all know exists for more money, comment on what this has to offer at it's price point. If it's not for you that's fine, but if you're just going to complain and laugh about how it doesn't fit your own thoughts of perfection, then throw out other options with comparable specs and pricing. Bring something to the conversation instead of trying to turn Massdrop's discussion forum into your own social media selfie section for comments. People are buying products here with money. No room for trolls and I really hope Massdrop gets rid of some of the useless comments in here and the commenters making them.
the 2edgy "gaming" stand really ruins this monitor, and I'm saying that as a gamer

I bought the rose gold colored version of this model about 6 months ago. I'm not a fan of the color, but It's one of the best monitors I've ever had. I also purchased the 1080p version of this and it was pretty good as well. This comment has just made it clear that I need another monitor for the sake of supporting the person behin these comments. Second to who ever runs the wendy's twitter account.
I think that's a great addition! You should ask Massdrop to include in the description that it is VESA compatible. A lot of people are using VESA these days for a cleaner looking desk.
Another Freesync instead of Gsync :(
6ms response time...lol gaming monitor

Yeah, I'm most certainly not. But if that's what you need to believe to make yourself think you "won" this argument then all the power to ya.
But if you're interested in reality in any way , I game on both an ultrawide 3440x1440 100hz gsync and a 1080p 165hz monitor and when I'm playing competitive anything below 120 fps I will start to see myself make errors that I otherwise would not.
Oh and I also just bought the monitor we are commenting on.. so it would be sort of retarded to buy a monitor with a technology I didn't think made a difference now would it.
Anyway it's obvious to me you don't really know what you're talking about , you just hear some buzzwords and then are gullible enough to believe you actually need it. I suggest in the future maybe just doing some research though, and read up on just why response times they put on the box is almost meaningless. Especially since it's not a regulated standard, and most companies use grey to grey which is useless and some use black to white which is a little more useful, but companies can and almost always exaggerate or flat out lie about the response times.
So now that you've been taken to school young buck, do you feel a little dumb for trying to choose your monitor by a useless metric ?
I suggest using tftcentral for your monitor reviews from now on. They actually test input lag and responsiveness in a controlled scientific setting.
XODUS
bet you would not know if on a 1ms or 6ms both 144hz
6ms response time...lol gaming monitor
I am running bench test on this monitor and it running at 72 hz.. How do I fix this?
tritoch
You need to update your adapter settings to 144hz. Windows will not default refresh rate to 144hz on your monitor for you.
tritoch
use DISPLAY port..right click desktop> click display properties>click Monitor> make sure on 144hz> apply gtg
Does anyone have any experience with shipping from this company? I would be replacing a display that I'm selling with this, so I'd need it ASAP - the Massdrop price is $100 less than anywhere else, but in the past I have experienced up to a month of waiting for Massdrop products. With the two week lead time on shipping for this I'm a little hesitant... thoughts?
Howdy Everyone,
We have extended this drop through the weekend. This will not effect the expected shipping times.
Cheers.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Hey butch. When does the CC get charged. The mass drop ended and havent seen a charge yet.
So it's like Viotek is the manufacturer for ASUS?
