The ‘4K’ UHD resolution spread across a ~32″ screen is often admired as a practical and flexible solution for productivity and entertainment. The ASUS PA329CRV of the ProArt series delivers this, with a focus on accurate colour reproduction. The monitor has a smart look with silver-coloured plastic stand and dark matte plastic bottom bezel. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with slim panel borders flush with the rest of the screen and thin hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by buttons which face forwards towards the right side of the bottom bezel.

A smart appearance

A 31.5″ 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) IPS-type panel is used, with 60Hz refresh rate plus Adaptive-Sync and VESA MediaSync Display certification. VRR technologies such as Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ and AMD FreeSync can be used with 48 – 60Hz VRR range. The screen includes a matte anti-glare screen surface, with 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 10-bit colour and 178°/178° viewing angles specified. A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 350 cd/m² (400 cd/m² HDR peak) typical maximum luminance and 98% DCI-P3 colour gamut. Unlike the PA279CRV, this model doesn’t target strong Adobe RGB coverage. The monitor is TÜV Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) certified which indicates reduced energetic blue light output from the panel, potentially aiding viewing comfort. A Calman Verified factory calibration is included with specified DeltaE <2, with various colour space presets such as sRGB, Adobe RGB (note far from complete coverage) and DCI-P3.

The monitor responds to HDR10 content in a basic way, with VESA DisplayHDR 400 support. It can put its generous DCI-P3 gamut and 10-bit colour support to good use, but doesn’t enhance the contrast experience by requiring local dimming or a high brightness by HDR standards. A 5ms grey to grey response time is specified (approach with caution). The stand is fully adjustable, including 130mm (5.12 inches) height adjustment and pivot into portrait. An oval cable-tidy is included near the bottom of the stand neck. The included stand can be removed via a quick-release mechanism to reveal provision for 100 x 100mm VESA mounting. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter with ‘zero watt’ switch), 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.4, DP 1.4 output (for MST daisy chaining), USB-C (96W PD, DP Alt Mode, upstream data) a 3.5mm headphone jack and 2 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports. A third USB 3.2 Gen 1 port plus USB-C downstream port is located at the bottom of the monitor for easy access, towards the left side as viewed from the front. 2 x 2W speakers are included for basic sound output, whilst PiP/PbP for 2 systems is supported.
