With no pan or rotation options the tilt is pretty much all that you have to get the angle of the Gigabyte Gaming monitors to your liking. Here it is at the two extremes.

There is plenty of height adjustment in both displays, with the G27QC having slightly more just because it can go lower before the panel hits the stops. Even though both are light monitors it's nice that the stand is calibrated to keep it exactly at the height you place it, with no unnecessary drift you can find on cheaper stands.

Although it's not easy to fit both monitors into one picture without the aid of a stepladder, hopefully the larger curve of the larger display is clear here. They both have the same radius but because the G32QC is larger it has to have a more pronounced curve to maintain that 1500R sweep.

The ultra thin bezel is deceptive as the panel itself doesn't go all the way to the corners. So you have a thin plastic look when it's off, but still a usual amount of black around the outside when they are in use. Although not spectacularly clear it's visible at the top right in the bottom picture on this page.

My working setup, an ASUS 1920x1200 ProArt and Acer 2560x1440 IPS...

compared to the two Gigabyte offerings side by side. A clear demonstration on how much extra real estate you get from the higher resolution (just look at the room there is on the grid selector on the left), as well as the sheer size of the two Gaming offerings. I had to go to a seriously wide angle lense just to fit them into the picture. Also, although it's very much a happy accident we're sure, the middle part of the stand perfectly, and we mean perfectly, fits a 15 button Stream Deck. Useful if you want it right in front of you.

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
