Well I'm not buying anything with the HP name on it, scam company! Besides 1440p on a 32" is just crap, should have been 4KQuote

FYI I have one of these and it's far from crap. Mine is the Bang and Olufsen version and it's a gorgeous display. 1440p on a 32" isn't crap either, and 4k is still 4k and needs a £1100 GPU to run properly. The only difference here is that mine is 70hz, but for the price and size etc this monitor is almost impossible to beat.

It's the same panel as a BenQ costing £200 more.

They already do a 4k version it's called the Spectre, but I avoided going 4k again like a dose of the clap.

HP make some really great stuff at decent prices. Their cheap laptops are usually very well specced and built nicely.

I guess it depends what you are looking for Dom. I run 1440p with a Titan X so I am under no illusions that I will ever pass the 70hz barrier. The only thing that kinda sucks is that I bought a Freesync display and am now using an Nvidia card. However, Adaptive Vsync kinda flies under the radar these days and works pretty bloody well.

With all of the stupid settings enabled and everything maxed in Fallout 4 I get 70 FPS when inside buildings and on Far Harbor which is absolutely stunning I saw FPS as low as 42, when in the swamp with all of the lighting effects going nuts (green etc). It was still very smooth and more than playable.

I would only need a higher refresh rate if I had something capable of pushing higher FPS. For most of us we aim for 60 FPS, 70 is a nice bonus.

As I said though, at the price I paid (about £370 IIRC) nothing even came close. In my top three was this, a 25" 1440p Dell (25" no Freesync or Gsync) and a 1080p AOC (though admittedly it was Freesync and 144hz). But even that was 27".

At first I did not like the 32". I had to turn my head to see it all. How people cope sitting that close to a 40" is a mystery. But now I am used to it and settled and I love it. Picture quality wise it's right up there and slaughters my old 4k Acer panel (which had the worst BLB I've ever seen).

There are other panels you can buy with the same exact screen in (BenQ do one and there are two others that are even more expensive) so at the price, features ETC this monitor was completely untouchable.

Going out there with a £500 budget or more opens up pretty much every sort of panel you can imagine, but sub £400? there's practically nothing worth owning.

The design is gorgeous, the stand is solid billet and it does sound great (I had to add a subwoofer to it though for some bass).

But yeah, if they launch this at the same price or thereabouts then I'm sure it will be a hit.

Edit. $429. That's actually less than mine was @ $450. So yeah, you're looking at around £370. Now try and find another panel this size with this res etc for that price. I guess removing the speakers has allowed them to drop the price a little.Quote
