It's at times like this we need a bigger office just for box storage. Suffice to say there is plenty of packaging to protect your purchase, both externally and in the usual 'gonna cover your floor in expanded polystyrene' internal protection.

Both come with a full set of cables, Displayport, HDMI, power - in various plug types - and USB that enables both the USB pass through and Sidekick functionality. The 32" model has an external power supply, but it falls into the small category rather than a power brick.

The supplied stand has only tilt and height adjustment, zero swivel or rotation. It's very sturdy though and well built, with a steel spine and baseplate as well as the VESA mount. The 27QC had the stand attached out of the box whilst the G32QC required a little attachment.

There are many different levels of curve available on curved displays, from 1000R all the way up to 3800R, with lower numbers equalling a more dramatic curve. The 1500R on the two Gigabyte Gaming displays is definitely at the bendier end of the spectrum, with the 32" model in particular look more curved to the naked eye both when off and in use.

The VESA mount - 100mm - in all its glory, as well as the labels for the connection options. With PiP functionlity available that explains the multiple HDMI inputs which might otherwise perplex you on a monitor with no speakers.

This is the back of the 32" display, the G27QC looks the same except the power input is the kettle lead style. Two HDMI, a Displayport and USB are the important bits. No RGB lighting, as you'd expect on a panel at this price point.

Although in the top left in this picture the power and OSD nipple is at the bottom right of the panel. Tucked away for sure, albeit not in the easiest place to locate. Hence the Sidekick software.

Very interested in the 27" version. Wonder how it compares to the Dell S2721DGF.Quote

Underwhelming. The iiyama GB3466WQSU is about the only recent display in the £350-450 bracket that has tempted me; but my daily is 2560x1600 IPS. Nowt wrong with the iiyama panel; but the lack of height at 1440 I find really, really, annoying.Quote
