ASUS has quickly become one of the go-to companies for high-end professional workstation displays, a market that has been dominated by Dell for a very long time. ASUS might not have the same presence as Dell in the market, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the Taiwanese company is kicking serious ass in the display business right now.
Right off the back of the ASUS ProArt PA27AC, the company asked if I would like to review their 32-inch model... but teased me "if you thought the PA27AC was good, you haven't seen anything yet". My contact at ASUS is one of the most enthusiast-driven marketing guys in the industry, and he knows his stuff - and he was right yet again. The ASUS PA328Q is a work of art, and as I was told "it would be hard to go back to anything else" and yet again, he's right.
For most of my work I've been using a mix of displays over the last year or so, but for the last 8-12 weeks I've been using the AOC AGON AG322QCX (our review here) which is a 32-inch QHD monitor with a super-fast 144Hz refresh rate but lacking-in-quality TN panel.
So in moving to the PA32UC it was jarring in terms of quality increases, but I'm not unused to them either. There are other monitors in my labs that are high-end IPS panels including the Dell UP3218K, a beyond-enthusiast 8K display that has an absolutely gorgeous panel. In short, the PA32UC is the only one that gets close to that in terms of quality and color accuracy is amazing.
The ASUS ProArt PA32UC isn't cheap by any means, with it packing a huge $2999 price tag.
