Is similar to the Dell monitor from not long ago, can't find any noticeable differences https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/565681.
Gigabyte warranty seems to cover Dark Pixels to a certain extent unlike Dell which is nice.
Dell covers dark pixels under warranty, but with criteria. Seems to cover most recently manufactured monitors:
To be fair, I thought Dell's policy on dark pixels would be a bit better.
$599 seems to be the same price at every store? Is that MSRP or has everyone matched?
Cheaper at JW (https://www.jw.com.au/gigabyte-g32qc-31-5-qhd-1ms-165hz-hdr-...) but need to factor in shipping, which for me in Metro Victoria brought total up to $591.79 so may be a cheaper option for some
Not even a close comparison…. this panel is VA vs Dell's IPS. 144hz vs 165hz.
Dell's is VA as well and both can be overclocked to 165hz (but is rated for 144hz)
dell panel is VA not IPS so its same, the design on dell better and the stand more adjustable
You're thinking of the wrong Monitor.
Get ready for them to take your money and then wait six weeks for stock to arrive before they ship it.
Gigabyte has absolutely God awful customer support though. Had to deal with them a few times over the years, they've always been incredibly slow, try argue any faults, and once just straight lost a mobo I'd sent to them, and claimed they didn't receive it. Ended up having to get the delivery confirmation sent out from Aus Post showing it was signed for at their receiving bay by their warehouse manager before they admitted they just couldn't find it. And then they wanted to ship me a lower specced newer model as a replacement, not a like for like.
I'm currently looking at getting an AOC C32G2E, taking price into consideration, would you recommend getting this one or the AOC?
I wouldn't recommend getting a 32-inch 1080p monitor (unless you are sitting pretty far back), but if you are sitting close enough you could even see a benefit from a 4k display. If you need a 144hz, well this does have HDR 400 (better than the HDR10 on the AOC), two-port USB 3.0 hub and double the resolution, but costs 67% more money.
I’m using this monitor at the meoment, the default settings are horrible but once you turn off the low bluelight it’s freaking awesome. Minimal ghosting and hdr really works.
Still waiting for 3080 though… dam scalpers
It's QHD, not 2K. 2K is a DCI standard resolution of 2048 X 1080.
Wouldn't this be a better one for the price with 34" 3440 x 1440 : https://www.centrecom.com.au/gigabyte-g34wqc-34-curved-wqhd-...
waiting for stock but keep delaying
Be aware this is displayport 1.2, so you cant do 144hz and HDR at the same time.
How is this better than the Viewsonic (VX3258-2KPC-MHD)?
Also 32" VA Curved 144Hz 2560x1440 Freesync (G-Sync Ready), with zero dead pixel guarantee.
Can be had for $499 literally everywhere, and has been had much cheaper recently.
Is the HDR400 really worth the difference?
HW unboxed has review and it has horrible smearing. Like 40-60ms dark shades. Be warned it is just like the $499 Viewsonics etc… they all use the old VA smeary panels.
