Consensus

our Verdict

The Gigabyte G32QC Curved Monitor is a great choice for gamers looking for an immersive experience. It has a 1440p QHD resolution, high contrast ratio, wide color gamut, excellent color accuracy, and HDR support for superb image quality. Plus, it has a high refresh rate, low input lag, and Freesync/G-Sync compatibility. However, it has some drawbacks – black uniformity is poor with bleeding at the top and bottom of the screen, and the viewing angles are sub-par. Additionally, the response time is slower in darker scenes causing motion blur, and the stand has limited adjustability.

ReasonS to Buy

  • High contrast ratio
  • Vast color gamut coverage
  • Swift refresh rate
  • Freesync and G-Sync compatible
  • Features HDR support
  • Support tilt and height adjustments

Reason to Avoid
