The screen size and pixel density offered by ~32″ 2560 x 1440 models hits the spot for some users. The ASUS PA328CGV offers this, wrapped up in a smart-looking chassis as expected from a ProArt model. Matte black features extensively, including a brushed texture to the bottom bezel. A central shiny manufacturer logo is included for a touch of contrast, whilst the top and side bezels are dual-stage. Including a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen. As well as a slender hard plastic outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) controls are located towards the right side of the bottom bezel, forwards-facing buttons.
A 32″ 2560 x 1440 (WQHD or 1440p) IPS-type panel is employed, coupled with a (presumably light to very light) matte anti-glare screen surface. A 165Hz refresh rate is supported, including support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro – with a 48 – 165Hz VRR range plus LFC. This is complemented by 10-bit colour support (8-bit + FRC likely), a 1000:1 static contrast ratio and 178°/178° viewing angles. The monitor includes a Calman Verified factory calibration with a specified DeltaE <2 for the sRGB colour space. A flicker-free WLED backlight delivers a 95% DCI-P3 colour gamut and 450 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. An sRGB emulation setting is included to cut down the colour gamut, alongside Low Blue Light (LBL) settings to promote a more relaxing viewing experience. VESA DisplayHDR 600 support is included, allowing the monitor to respond to HDR10 content and put its 10-bit capability and fairly generous gamut to good use. It also necessitates some degree of local dimming, with perhaps 16 dimming zones in this case, alongside a specified 600 cd/m² peak HDR luminance.
A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified, which as usual you shouldn’t put too much weight on. A ‘Rapid Rendering’ strobe backlight setting is also included. The monitor also includes PiP/PBP functionality, 5 gamma settings and 6-axis colour adjustment. ‘QuickFit Plus’ functionality is also included, which includes an overlay with central marker, ruler or on screen size indicator. The screen includes both a conventional stand with full adjustability – including 130mm or 5.12 inches height adjustment and pivot into portrait. Plus a desk C-clamp attachment that allows you to clamp the screen to the desk (with similar adjustability). The stand attaches via a quick-release mechanism and can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), DP 1.4, HDMI 2.0, USB-C (90W PD, DP Alt Mode and upstream data), 4 USB 3.1 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
