The speed and immersion offered by high refresh rate 32″ models hits the spot for some gamers. The Corsair XENEON 32QHD240 provides this. Unlike other current members of the series, this model has a minimalistic stand design with simple rectangular base and dark matte finish. The top and side bezels are dual-stage with slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus thin hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the screen, towards the right side as viewed from in front. Above this there’s a dedicated power button.
A 32″ IPS-type panel is used, an AUO AHVA panel more specifically. This is accompanied by a 2560 x 1440 (WQHD or 1440p) resolution and 240Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-Sync is also supported, including Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ and AMD FreeSync with 48 – 240Hz VRR range plus LFC. A (presumably very light) matte anti-glare screen surface is included, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio and 178°/178° viewing angles are specified. 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) colour is assumed. A Quantum Dot LED backlight provides a 98% DCI-P3 and 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut plus 600 cd/m²+ HDR peak luminance. The monitor responds to HDR10 content in a fairly dynamic way, allowing it to put its decent brightness and generous colour gamut to good use alongside 10-bit colour support. With basic edge-lit local dimming employed and 16 zones assumed based on similar models.
A 1ms MPRT response time is specified using the ‘MPRT’ strobe backlight setting. As usual, be cautious with such figures. The stand attaches centrally via 100 x 100mm VESA and can be replaced by an alternative VESA 100 solution if preferred, with the included solution offering tilt and limited height adjustment (68mm or 2.68 inches). The ports face downwards and include; a 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.4, USB-C (15W PD assumed, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), USB-C (assumed 15W PD only), 2 USB 3.1 ports and DC power input (external ‘power brick’).
Further information can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed for ~$700 USD (£700).
