MSI MAG321CURV

Review by Playwares

Matte, curved (1500R) 3840x2160 and fully adjustable VA panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C 3.1, 2x USB 2.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The MAG321CURV offers great 60hz gaming performance for a VA panel, is quite accurate, but has slightly too low preset gamma (2.13 average), can not fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces, and has a fake bezel or frame-less casing with a perceived black depth decreasing inner black bezel.

NEC PA3222UHD
Review by Extra Hardware CZ
Review by PRAD
Review by Toms Hardware

The NEC PA32W is supports hardware calibration (requires purchase of the NEC SpectraView kit which comes with a colorimeter) and has uniformity compensation, but it uses a wide gamut panel and needs to be calibrated to be used properly, or to its full potential.  The NEC is fully adjustable, has proper color space emulation modes to prevent wide gamut color over-saturation, color or uniformity compensation, has accurate color presets and a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel.

Philips

Philips BDM3275UP

Spoiler (hover to show)

Philips 328P6VJEB

Matte 4K VA panel with extended color space coverage which causes some color over-saturation.  It has an sRGB mode which is superior to the U32H850UMI, but not the BenQ EW3270U which is the superior VA panel using 32" 4K monitor.

Philips 328P6VUBREB

Review by PC Monitors
Review by Trusted Reviews

Matte 4K VA panel with wide gamut HDR panel, HDR 600 certification, very accurate color presets and a high quality sRGB mode which does not under-saturate colors.  It has a matte black bezel (superior to glossy black but still decreases the perceived black depth compared grey bezels), a fully adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C, 3.5mm Audio Out, 4x USB 3.0 and RJ-45 Ethernet power port.


Philips 329P9H

Review by =DEAD= (1240:1 contrast)
Review by PRAD (1400:1 contrast)

Matte fully adjustable 3840x2160 LG AH-IPS panel with Displayport In & Out, Gigabyte-LAN port, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C 3.1, 4x USB 3.1.  The 329P9H is very accurate, has almost 1240-1400:1 contrast and fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot when the Response Time (overdrive) setting is switched from the preset Off setting to Faster.  PRAD measured a 25ms signal delay which is almost a two frame delay (32ms), which is far too high for competitive 60hz gaming, but is fine for casual gaming and in line with most TV's.


Philips 326M6VJRMB

Review by PC Monitors
Review by PRAD

Matte, wide gamut (HDR), 3840x2160 Innolux VA (TPV-M315DJJ-K31) panel with a height adjustable stand, AMD Free-Sync (40-60hz), Displayport, edge-lit back-light dimming for HDR, 3x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The 326M6VJRMB offers very accurate DCI-P3 color accuracy out of the box, but the sRGB mode significantly under-saturates colors which leaves one with over-saturated and inaccurate color when viewing SDR or non-HDR content created for the HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB color spaces.  The HDR image quality offered is quite good due to the high brightness (>700cdm/2), high DCI-P3 color space coverage and edge-lit back-light dimming.


Philips 328E1CA

Review by PC Monitors

Curved, matte, semi-wide gamut, 3840x2160 Samsung VA (TPV TPM315WR1-FP01.S) panel with AMD Free-Sync (40-60hz), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The Philips has negligible input lag (<4ms measured by the SMT Tool) and fast pixel response times for a 60hz VA panel (Smart Response Faster), but has a semi-wide gamut and sRGB mode free panel which over-saturates some colors, and has slightly too low preset gamma.

Samsung

Samsung U32E850R

40-60hz Free-Sync.  It uses PWM which ruins motion clarity and may make users see flicker and/or suffer from health issues like headaches and eyestrain when the brightness is set below 15%=100cdm/2.

Samsung U32H850UMI

Matte 4K VA panel with extended color space and a poor sRGB mode which under-saturates color and is unable to fully cover the sRGB color space like the BenQ EW3270U.  The Samsung uses LED PWM Dimming or flicker when the brightness is set below 30%.

Samsung U32J590

Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)
Review by Playwares
Review by Rtings

The Samsung uses a fairly accurate matte semi-wide gamut 32" 4K VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (40-60hz range supported by Displayport & HDMI), but isn't as accurate as the more expensive BenQ EW3270U, LG 32UD598 (non-wide gamut) and Philips  328P6VUBREB (28ms delay vs competitors low/negligible lag), and the Samsung uses LED PWM Dimming or Flicker when the brightness is set below 50%, as well as lacks a properly functioning sRGB mode to prevent wide gamut color over-saturation.  It has Displayport, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0 (4K @60hz + Free-Sync support), and 3.5mm Audio Out.


Samsung S32R750UEI

Review by IBXT
Review by Trusted Reviews

Non-curved and non-semi-wide gamut matte 60hz 3840x2160 Samsung VA panel with HDMI, mini-Displayport and USB 2.0.  The 32" version IBXT tested is very accurate, as well as more accurate than the 144hz 2560x1440 27" S27R750QEI =DEAD= tested which has low preset gamma which can be improved by selected Gamma Mode 2.

ViewSonic

ViewSonic VP3268-4K

Review by =DEAD=

Matte, fully adjustable 10 bit (8 bit +FRC) 3840x2160 AH-IPS panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, mini Displayport, 4x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The VP3268-4K is very accurate, and supports hardware calibration with a compatible accurate colorimeter such as the X-Rite i1 Display Pro and has a 14 bit 3d LUT which reduces banding and preserves the quality of gradients when calibrated.  The overdrive (Response Time) is set to Standard, but can be improved without adding overshoot ghosting by selecting the Advanced setting.
