~32″ ‘4K’ UHD models with 144Hz+ refresh rates are popular for both entertainment and creative purposes. The MSI MAG 322UPF provides this experience, including HDMI 2.1 connectivity to support a 120Hz ‘4K’ UHD signal for systems including the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The screen offers pared back styling with black matte plastic dominating, including for the simple low profile stand base. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, including a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus thin 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.

A 32″ 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) IPS-type panel is included, supporting a 160Hz refresh rate alongside Adaptive-Sync plus HDMI 2.1 VRR. This allows VRR technologies such as AMD FreeSync and Nvidia ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ to be used, with 48 – 160Hz VRR range plus LFC. A matte anti-glare screen surface is included, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 10-bit (8-bit + FRC) colour and 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles are specified. A flicker-free WLED backlight provides a 350 cd/m² (400 cd/m² HDR peak) typical maximum luminance and 95% DCI-P3 (93.6% Adobe RGB, 125.7% sRGB) colour gamut. The peak of blue light is shifted to less energetic wavelengths (TÜV Rheinland certified Low Blue Light Hardware Solution) to potentially aid viewing comfort.

HDR10 content is represented in a basic way, at the VESA DisplayHDR 400 level. This allows the screen to put its reasonable gamut and 10-bit colour support to good use, but doesn’t require a high brightness by HDR standards or the use of effective local dimming to enhance contrast. A 1ms grey to grey response time is specified, to be approached with caution as usual. The stand provides tilt, swivel and height (100mm or 3.94 inches) adjustment. It attaches centrally and can be removed to reveal 100 x 100mm VESA holes for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards and include; a 3.5mm headphone jack, 3 USB 2.0 ports plus Type-B upstream, USB-C (90W, DP Alt Mode, upstream data), DP 1.4 (with DSC), 2 HDMI 2.1 (48 Gbps) ports and an AC power input (internal power converter). 2-device PbP and PiP is also supported, alongside KVM which allows easy USB peripheral sharing and display switching between 2 systems.
