~32″ is a good screen size for the ‘4K’ UHD resolution in our view, offering a good amount of desktop real-estate and a pixel-dense experience. The ASUS VP32UQ is built around this, a member of the VP series with a 31.5″ IPS-type panel. The design is simple and smart, with matte black plastic used extensively – aside from the glossy black plastic stand neck. The top and side bezels are dual-stage with a slender panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen, plus a slim hard plastic outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the right side as viewed from the front.

Simple and smart

A 31.5″ IPS-type panel with 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution is employed, likely an LG Display IPS part. This features a matte anti-glare screen surface and has a specified 1200:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 10-bit colour supported (likely 8-bit + FRC). A 60Hz refresh rate is supported alongside Adaptive-Sync – Nvidia’s ‘G-SYNC Compatible Mode’ and AMD FreeSync with a VRR range of 48 – 60Hz. The monitor is marketed as an ‘Eye Care Monitor’, including a flicker-free WLED backlight and Low Blue Light (LBL) settings designed to enhance viewing comfort. A typical maximum luminance of 350 cd/m² is supported alongside 100% sRGB coverage. The monitor will respond to HDR10 content, allowing 10-bit colour reproduction to be leveraged. This isn’t a ‘true’ HDR experience due to limitations with the colour gamut, brightness and backlight control. A 4ms grey to grey response time is specified, which should be approached with caution. The included stand is tilt-only, although 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards in a recessed area above the stand attachment point and include; AC power input (internal power converter), DP 1.2a+ (HDR feature set), HDMI 2.0 and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 2 x 2W speakers are included for basic sound output.

VESA holes at the rear
