You might not use the USB ports on the side of your monitor, or you might not even have them, but it doesn't mean they're not an important part of your display. Personally, I don't use any USB ports on the side of my monitor - part and parcel of my job, I'm testing so many different PCs, graphics cards and displays that I don't have a proper PC that doesn't change every few weeks.
ASUS looks after consumers and professionals that need oodles of connectivity, packing the PA32U with everything including the kitchen sink this time. We have:
- 1 x DisplayPort 1.2
- 4 x HDMI 2.0
- 2 x Thunderbolt 3 USB-C (1x in, 1x out)
- 1 x USB 3.0 Type-B
- 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A
- 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C
- 3W x 2 stereo SMS speakers
- 3.5mm mini-jack
As you can see it's not just display connectivity that ASUS provides, but plenty of USB 3.0 ports to handle various devices plugged into the display. Thunderbolt 3 is large focus here, with up to 40Gbps of bandwidth dedicated to the two USB-C ports on the display. The ports can handle USB 3.1 with Power Delivery which handles up to 60W of power for external devices. Furthermore, you can daisy-chain monitors through a single Thunderbolt port, which means there's no need for a hub or switch.
The ASUS ProArt PA32U handles it all in its stride.
The navigation joystick is a godsend, anyone who knows how annoying some of the controls on the back of a monitor can be will always appreciate a good joystick on the back of the display. It's very close to the design and feel of the ROG Swift monitors, with easy and intuitive navigation through the OSD.
