4K 32" IPS/AHVA/PLS Monitor Buying Decisions are not Easy to Make... - Page 2

In some countries like Canada the BL3201PH is nearly the same price as the pixel perfect UHD325 after tax and duty while the UHD3216R is significantly cheaper. Unfortunately I bought my 3216R (850$ total with duty) before the BenQ's price dropped from 1200$ (plus 12% tax and other fees in my province) back down to last years 1000$ price.

Thanks for the detailed reply.
If I'm not doing ANY gaming on it, and using a Dell Precision M3800 laptop with Nvidia Quadro K110M, and my uses will be generally productivity - MS Office, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for photography (nothing professional), which one would you recommend?
The BenQ here where I live costs double the price of importing a Korean monitor.

Oh, Gosh
I see we are all in the same boat.

This is what I have bought in the recent days. Keep in mind I can return them with Amazon prime.

1 UHD3216R (receiving it monday)
2. ASUS PB328Q (received and tested)
3.ASUS VA32AQ (receiving tomorrow)

Ideally I would like a 40" 4K with incredible colors and DP, but that is simply not going to happen yet. Seiki pro???

The only monitor I have received and tested is the ASUS PB328Q. Tom's hardware review said it was an incredible monitor. Whilst black levels are fantastic, the colors remind me of a TN panel. Don't know what Tom was smoking when he reviewed this monitor.

This is what I do not understand.

Go into any store and see a new Sony high contrast XBR or Z9D tv. Notice how incredible the colors are.

I'm in search of a monitor which will give me the same "Wow" factor.

You'll need a glossy or very low haze semi-glossy monitor with good contrast for that "wow" factor.

Yeah
true my XBR 900A has that gorilla glass.

Bit problematic. Most users want to kill the glossy effect.

I wonder if that Seiki pro has the correct screen?

My buying decisions suddenly became apparent.

Microboard just announced that both their 32" and 34" are LG ips, and have semi gloss screens.



3.15-inch R4K310C. 4096X2160 LG IPS panel.

and 34"

I'm getting a price now ....

I've been around and around on this. Everything seems to have some issue. My last hope is someone gets the 32U75 and says it's just like the UHD3216R but minus the diffuser issue.

I'm also really confused already after reading all comments and threads.
I need a 32" monitor with 4k resolution which will be used for general productivity, and Photoshop and Lightroom for Photography.

I'm still undecided between these three:
- QNIX UHD3216R AHVA panel
- QNIX UHD325 PLS monitor
- Crossover 324K

Which one should I buy? The all currently have the same approximately the same price. Is the PLS better for color reproduction than the AHVA panels??
