Users holding out for a curved gaming display should appreciate this offer from Amazon on the Asus TUF VG328H1B 32-inch curved gaming monitor. The VG328H1B has notably high refresh rates and is capable of short response times.

It’s been going for around $280 as of late across multiple vendors but today it’s discounted to $232. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for the VG328H1B.

Asus TUF Gaming 32-Inch 165Hz Curved Monitor was: $280, now $232 at Amazon

This 32-inch monitor features a 31.4-inch LED-backlit VA panel with a curvature graded at 1500R. The VA panel may be considered a drawback for some but the size, curve, and gaming specifications help tip the scale.

Under optimal conditions, it’s capable of reaching refresh rates as high as 165Hz and response times as short as 1ms. According to Asus, the brightness can reach up to 250 nits.

Users have two internal 2-Watt speakers to take advantage of alongside a 3.5mm audio jack and audio input jack. There are two HDMI 2.0 ports, one VGA input, and a D-Sub port.

    it certainly has more compelling blacks. Reply

    LG is introducing "IPS Black" technology that closes most of the difference:

    However, it sounds like they're bringing it (first?) to professional monitors. I hope they add it to their higher-end gaming monitors (the ones currently using nano-IPS), next.

    I prefer the superior colour representation and faster grey-to-black response times you tend to get from IPS. Hopefully one day either OLED or Micro-LED will replace both, emissive technologies seem to be superior in general. Reply

    Isn't micro-LED just array backlighting? Reply

    I can say from experience that 32" is too big for a flat VA monitor. Even sitting back farther than most people would, I can still see non-uniformity due to the poor viewing angle of VA. Reply

    I prefer a VA panel for the true blacks. It matters in everything from gaming to web browsing to even YouTube. As far as viewing angles...when aren't you directly in front of your desktop monitor, especially a curved one? Reply

    mode_13h just mentioned where viewing angles become a problem - with a flat, large monitor. Apparent uniformity suffers, especially if you're seated fairly close. It ought to be less of a problem with the curve on this one. Reply

    Like Spunjji said, I was only talking about flat vs. curved VA monitors, at the 32" size.

    I was looking for the cheapest 4k 32" monitor I could find, from a reputable brand, and it turned out to be that Samsung VA monitor I mentioned. Since I was buying it for work, it had to be cheap and I didn't bother about things like curvature. Even the fact that it was VA didn't really factor into my decision, although I think it's my first experience with VA.
