The Asus XG32VQR display is another state of the art gaming monitor that Asus has developed.

To begin with, this monitor is pretty aesthetic to begin with. And should give you a slight edge when it comes to competitive gaming.

Considering that the XG32VQR is VA panel, the monitor operates in a gray area of speed and aesthetics. And it’s capable of running in high rates. So you’ll get a balance of performance, speed, and crisp images.

With the monitors elegant and futuristic look and design, you’ll able to add this to your room or office to adore.

The 31.5-inch monitor gives you the immersive experience because of its size of the display.

So before investing in the Asus XG32VQR, let’s dive into some of the monitors’ performance, features, and design.

The Design

With a futuristic design and look to the Asus XG32VQR, you’ll be able to adore the monitor whenever you’re not using the display.

Also, the XG32VQR has really thin bezels, and this is great because you’ll be able to immerse yourself even more into your gaming and multimedia experiences.

With a thin bezel design, you’ll be able to connect multiple monitors to the XG32VQR and have an entirely beautiful set of displays together.

Considering this monitor is a VA panel, you’ll be able to view the display 178 degrees in viewing angle without the images and color fading.

The design of the XG32VQR has an excellent matte black finish to it. The monitor itself looks elegant and futuristic as well.

And the along with the displays stand, it’s ergonomic by design. So you’ll be able to tilt, swivel and make the height adjustments to your preference. However, the stand will not let you pivot the panel.

The stand itself also has excellent cable management design to it. Thanks to the stands design, the cables and wires can go inside the stand and straight to your monitors’ ports.

Having an excellent cable managing system will create more space and have a cleaner set up for you.

You can also add a VESA mount to the XG32VQR if you ever feel like switching from the stock stand. You’ll be able to attach a 100×100 VESA mount onto the back of the panel. Then you’ll be able to mount the monitor onto your wall and start enjoying your favorite Netflix movies.

Also, if you’re big on RGB lighting, the monitor uses RGB lighting on the back of the display, this adds to the immersive experience whenever you’re gaming or viewing multimedia.

Along with the monitors’ weight, this monitor only weighs in about 20 lbs. It may be quite heavy, but shouldn’t give you any issues when moving the monitor around your house or office.

Overall the design of the monitor is elegant and aesthetic at the same time. It’s great that the monitor is VESA compatible. The stock stand itself is high quality, but the base may be quite large but shouldn’t serve you any problems down the line.

And with a 32-inch display, you’ll have enough screen real estate to have multiple windows and projects open.

Performance and Features

The XG32VQR runs on a resolution of 2560×1440 WQHD, with a 144 Hz refresh rate. With this type of resolution, you’ll have enough screen real estate to have multiple apps and projects open.

Being a VA panel, you’ll be able to have a balance of smooth gaming and image quality. So you’ll have the qualities of an IPS and a TN panel into one. Along with excellent image quality, there are no dead pixels and should provide you with crisp pixels.

Also, the 144 Hz refresh rate is excellent if you’re a competitive gamer, the refresh rate is fast enough so that you’ll be able to have a slight edge over your competition. Having a high 144 Hz refresh rate, you’ll be able to see the image detail entirely under fast-paced action scenes fully.

However, you won’t get the fastest response time, because this monitor has 4 ms (GTG) of response time, which is already quite fast.

But you won’t notice any significant difference when gaming on a monitor with a 4ms response time vs. a 1ms response time monitor.

Also, the monitor is curved by design and is a 32-inch panel; you’ll be able to absorb yourself into the gaming experience fully. Thanks to the monitor being a 1800R curvature, you’ll be able to see every point of the display within your eyes.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to use the adaptive Freesync features for this monitor. And the results will give you a smoother and liquid-like gameplay experience. When running on FreeSync, the monitor eliminates screen tearing and ghosting.

If you do have an Nvidia graphics card, you’ll be able to use limited G-Sync features because Nvidia released drivers back in January 2019 that make Nvidia graphics card compatible with the FreeSync.

With a flicker-free screen, you’ll be able to game and work on the XG32VQR for hours without getting your eyes strained. This is great if you’re doing a marathon session of projects or competitive gaming. And also great if you’re using the computer at night.

In Conclusion

If you’re thinking about investing in the Asus XG32VQR monitor, then you’re making the right decision. Considering the XG32VQR is a VA panel, you’ll have a middle ground of image quality and high-speed performance.

Overall, the XG32VQR monitor is great for players that game casually and competitively. This monitor is great if you’re also a producer, digital artist, photographer, or a video editor because of its color depth and clarity.

The Asus XG32VQR is an excellent investment and should last you for many years.

  1. This Asus XG32VQR is a beautiful monitor that will look great in every gamer’s playing area whether it is in use or not. It has a nice design and I especially like the thin bezels that give it an ultra modern look. I like it a lot and will be getting this to add to my setup. 

    I will use it not only for gaming but also for editing videos that I create for customers and my own business use. It has excellent clarity and color depth per the specs and the reviews that I have read. It will be perfect. The size is also big enough to really be able to get into the games, a good experience. 

    The cable management system that has been designed into the monitor also is a nice touch, as it can get quite crowded on the desktop already, and being able to load them into the stand and directly to the laptop. Overall this is a winning unit. The Asus XG32VQR is going to be a part of my system very soon. Thanks for the great review of this great product.

  2. Very interesting review you have here. I personally play video games on the main television and his review is curiously making me want to step up my gaming devices and desktop! Very informational to which has helped me narrow down my decisions and helped me with new knowledge.

    I love how you also give reviews on 2019 Asus laptop that link straight to amazon! Very convenient! 

    The cheaper scale priced  laptops that you also created for us is beneficial for students or individuals on a budget like myself I have been having a purchasing eye for a new laptop recently and do you honestly think chrome book is a good choice? I want a chrome book but don’t know if I should get the acer or Samsung?! Your guidance and advice is greatly appreciated!

    Great work! Will definitely save your website for future references 🙂

    Best,

  4. Hi, Jose.

    The aesthetic is excellent with thin bezels making many units to combine together for a big screen.

    The RGB light at the back is one of its excellent feature making it unique in the drawing room.
    Overall a wise purchase. Thanks, Jose.

  5. I see the image resolution is quite high, and I know this is the main catcher for any gaming. The 31.5 inch is not bad either. Thankfully it allows several programs to run consecutively. 

    The curvy feature is also great, makes gaming more interesting. I see that it has the screen stands, do they come in wall mountable forms? I feel it is much safer to have it mounted on the wall, just in case of excess excitement or frustrations during gaming…

    Thanks for this review.
