What's the deal with this display? Doesn't seem to be any buzz around it even though it has a lot of what people may be interested in. Yes it's only 60hz, but at 4k and with G-sync i think that is fine for now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009893

newegg has a listing for 1300 clams, i think 1000 is more a magic number and it'll probably hit that price quickly enough, but right now it's not even in stock. Anyone else interested in this monitor?

I just heard about this monitor via another OCN post. I have been eagerly anticipating a 30'' 4K Gysnc panel, and I didn't think it would happen. And yet here is one biggrin.gif. I too can't seem to find much information on it. Has anybody else heard anything?

This is pretty much everything I'd need, and over twice the price I'm looking for. Oh well... One day...

Friend of mine placed an order yesterday so i'll see when it actually will ship once they get some stock and try to get some hands on time with it as well to see how it performs and what the bleed/glow is like.

wow I've been waiting for some other models for month and this just seems to be popping into existence :-)
This seems to be one of the cases were we have an early batch at alternate.de in Germany. I wonder what's wrong with it this time...

https://www.alternate.de/Acer/Predator-XB321HK-LED-Monitor/html/product/1238124?campaign=Monitor/Acer/1238124
The text says it will be shipped in 1-2days and it seems to be available for regular order (not preorder)

I tried the 4k 28" Acer before and everything was a little too small, especially for working (desktop, office and more) and I didn't want to upscale because I wasn't really happy with the result. I wonder if 32" is a good size for 4k and would love to try.
Price tag is 1099€ for this one. 800€ for XB271hu is already a lot. The question is where is the line most pro gamers won't cross...

I also have the XB280HK and feel the same way as you do. Tiny icons/text and somewhat off scaling just led to a mixed experience. Love the high resolution but after getting my XB270HU Ive also realized that I much prefer an IPS panel over TN (not to say TN is god awful like some on this site seem to think).

If this monitor has a good rep after the first wave or two of buyers I may consider replacing my current 4K display

Yup I'm in the same boat. I currently have the Samsung 28" 4k monitor. You can't adjust the height of the stand, and it uses a TN panel. I've since retired it and have used my OG Swift instead. 28" seemed too small for 4k as you all mentioned . This 32" seems perfect. It's the appropriate size and has GSYNC. I'm usually on top of my monitor game, but I had no idea this was a thing.

Uh-huh. I check monitor news daily from multiple sites but I had no clue of this one. Looks like I need some new sources. biggrin.gif

$1,300 is just price gouging. The G-sync module only adds around $100 dollars itself, and there are plenty of 32" monitors with all the same bells and whistles sans g-sync for around half that amount.

at 800 to 900 it would be a little pricey but still acceptable. At $1,300 that's just robbery

I'm really kind of ticked off by scant amount of 32" 4k monitors, there are a bunch of 4k 40" korean panels floating around as well as name brand ones, but 40" is a bit too big for desk usage and they dont come with VRR either. I believe this Acer is the only 32" 4k VRR monitor with gsync, and then theres a samsung thats 31.5" with freesync i was looking at around $900, but it has PWM under 30% brightness which means running it around 150-160 nits to be PWM free and thats far too bright for a dark gaming room.

Looking at all the recent stuff announced with monitors looks to be filled with 27" and 28" 4k panels which completely defeats the purpose of 4k at such a small physical size, 32" isn't that much larger, but i feel its a very good spot for usability of 4k without scaling and a nice pixel density.

I just also caught wind of the Acer XR342CK which is a 3440x1440 30-75hz freesync monitor with a 1900R curvature :O I've kind of been avoiding 21:9 due to the compatibility complications, and it seems like just going with a 40" 4k monitor and using 3440x1440 when desired with that is a better choice due to best of both worlds.
