    A little bit too expensive.
    You can get a nice Samsung Neo QLED for that price (double the size for the same price)
    I know, it's a big TV and not a gaming monitor. And that's my point, it's more or less a bigger PG32UQX without a few gimmick OSD things but it should be roughly equal to it. Someone is having a nice margin on its product.

    Monitors have become the biggest joke, for the fact i could get 3 LG CX OLED's for the same price makes me laugh, who cares about possible burn in when chances are its still going to be cheaper!

    I keep looking to update my monitor the PG279Q that i got about 5/6 years ago for £550, monitors haven't gone down in price since then they have only gone up by crazy amounts, even the new asus one that is meant to replace this one is a cool £700-800, with some very minor updates. honestly if LG ever release a 35inch OLED around these price brackets no one will look at a monitor heck people are aleady looking at TVs now as they're just so much cheaper

    Wow that price! I'll stick with my PG279Q then, still a great monitor and has served me well! It's not like my 1080ti could handle this beast anyway

    I just want a 4k 165+ hz monitor with g-sync and very low latency, and displayport 2.0 or hdmi 2.1. I dont want local dimming, and i dont care about HDR, both of which makes the price explode.

    I would love this in a 27" 144Hz+ 1440P monitor. The extra contrast would be wonderful in darker games but without the burn in issues OLED brings. The cost of mini LED backlights isn't that much so this price will come down over time especially as other vendors make competing products. I certainly wont be early adopting but a mini LED backlight monitor is going to be bought in the next couple years.

    So I spent maybe $1200-1300 USD on an Acer 4k 32" gysnc IPS back in early 2016... at the time, and even now, that feels like an absurd amount to spend on monitor. It's not a direct comparison since it was IPS and limited to 60hz gysnc... that said, it does showcase some outrageous price creep for very little improvement in technology/quality.

    For me 32" for work/gaming is a bit out of my comfort zone.
    Would like a 27" with same specs and ya, not willing to pay more than 1k for a screen.

    I very much doubt many people will buy this. Even if it were cheaper it's still missing HDMI 2.1 and in this day and age where we have PS5 and XBSX, that's just not an option.

    Another GSync monitor? NVIDIA should either abandon GSync or let AMD use it via licensing. I was hoping that NVIDIA is actually abandoning it when they started adding FreeSync monitors to their drivers. This forced splitting of monitor market is unacceptable.

    Why G-Sync not what everybody thought it was? Or more than likely, it's not working like it should or thought it should.

    Price should not be more than $1,500.
    Just go get yourself nice OLED TV for less than half the price.

    Three and a half grand for a 32" screen. And people say OLED is expensive. F*ck off Asus. Honestly, if you have money to burn because you're playing Premier League football, this might be alright, but otherwise, this is a joke.

    Big fail on this, for obvious reasons. You'd expect them to give a flying f*ck and have 2.1 onboard. But no. That will come next year, for a measly 4,000 smackaroos.

    I can buy an LG 48inch OLED, try to cause as much burn-in as possible, then buy another and still not reach the outrageous price of the PG32UQX. Complete asinine!
