    We will review HDR gaming in relation to Samsung's FreeSync2 certified C32HG70 (aka CHG70). This Quantum Dot 2560x1440 monitor can do 144Hz combined with FreeSync and FreeSync2. That eliminates stutt...

    From provided information, screen is really good when all it does is taken into consideration.
    But that stand... It did won contest for ugliest stand ever.

    Had this one about 12 months. Best monitor I've ever had. As you said is it perfect? no. No monitor is, but i would still buy another one if I had my time over. 32" isn't for everyone, but its a good compromise between gaming and productivity.
    As for the stand, ugly? that's subjective. But sure as hell is practical and sturdy

    I have a 24'' and it's too big for me, I have no idea how people use even bigger monitors! :confused:
    Now we need other brands like LG to pop up cheaper versions of this, I'm not selling my kidneys.

    24" too big?? It's because you are 140 cm in length right :D

    Well, i kinda agree with him, since he's a cat a 24 is already bigger than him :p

    Thanks for Monitor review, i wish there were more since we use this more than mouse and keyboard as we're looking at it the whole time and it's a more important piece of hardware than most think.

    Hopefully some Ultrawides someday :)

    I'll keep it in mind, monitors are not really my thing or my in-depth expertise though.

    Damn, why do all modern monitors have to be curved? Looks like we are doomed to another marketing gimmick :(

    I like the curve cause te outsite of the monitor have a better angle, it's better for the colours, lesser wasted out colours.

    It makes sense for HUGE monitors I guess, but 32"?

    Hi all!

    Like the review a lot, would love to own such a monitor. But for now I'm condemend to a 27". Ah well...
    I see all kinds of productcodes for the monitor floating around on the world wide web, are there any differences between them? Is it related to the year of production or something?
    Not even the Samsung site brings more clarity.
    Here are a few examples of productodes for the monitor I found:
    LC32HG70QQUXE, LC32HG70QQUXEN, LC32HG70QQU, C32HG70QQN, LC32HG70QQNXZA

    Yeah, these are regional SKU codes. Per country, these can be different.

    Ridiculous. It makes no difference with colors at all and NO difference on viewing angle on an IPS panel. You're falling for bullshit marketing hype that they pulled out of their ass so they could charge more money for the same old tech. Nothing more.

    Bottom line: I'm a professional, so if it's curved, I'm not buying.

    Looks like a very decent display... Changing the subject a bit... Which case is that, displayed with a GeForce in it, the one with the red accents?

    I can agree with you to a certain level. However, if you sit straight in front of your monitor (which I assume 99.99% of us do), and play a game or watch a movie, the curve does immerse you more. Especially at this size.

    Hey I know, that's a subjective statement, and it is mine to make. But if I can give you an example: say 2-3 years ago when we all had to surround view / eyefinity e.g. three monitors to play your games. Did you set these up one by one in straight line sitting next towards each other, or was that the middle one straight in front of you and the right and left panels in a bit in an angle? There you go ... that's the feeling you get with a curved monitor for gaming, it does immerse. But I also understand it isn't for everybody.

    And yes, for desktop, professional and heck even browsing. I prefer a square one as well.

    The cheapo one that got CRUSHED by some media for airflow reasons. However, when set up right .. isn't an issue imho. Still using it without any problems (hey I like TRON, now you know why I use it):
