With only a couple of weeks of using the ASUS ProArt PA32UC we thought we'd throw it into different workloads, so it was used as a workstation machine display for a week and then used for Corey, our video editor.
One of the only gripes I had on the ProArt PA27AC is that it had a relatively small 27-inch panel for more reasons than one. First, after using 34-inch UltraWide monitors and larger 32-inch 2560x1440 monitors it's hard to go back to a small 27-inch. Secondly, 4K has never been good on a 27-inch panel for text size. Windows 10 scaling does a good job, but for professionals and workstation use the monitor will only be used for software, not gaming.
The larger 32-inch panel provides so much more room for the 3840x2160 resolution to breathe, so you don't feel so cramped with your workflow. The DPI scaling in Windows 10 helps out here, so you can have the full 100% scaling and 4K looks perfect on a 32-inch panel. I'm a big fan of 4K on 32-inch from using many different models, even QHD looks great on a larger 32-inch display.
HDR is all the rage these days so what good is it buying a new professional-grade monitor you will keep for at least 2-3 years if it doesn't pack HDR? ASUS doesn't just throw HDR on top of an already great monitor, it goes to great lengths to provide an all inclusive package. The ASUS ProArt PA32UC has an Ultra HD Premium certification, which is the industry standard for HDR. It's beautiful in-person, something you can truly marvel at... so once you're finished working, playing back 4K HDR content will look out-of-this-world.
ASUS promises and truly delivers with out-of-this-world blacks and beautifully bright whites, thanks to the PA32UC's impressive full-array LED backlight and LED Driving technology from ASUS. The panel packs 384 LED zones that have a peak brightness of 1000 nits.
ASUS has put some incredible design work into the ProArt series with the same super-slim bezel making the larger 32-inch panel stand out even more, and if you're moving up from a 1080p or 1440p display the addition resolution matched with the larger panel size make for a match made in heaven. On top of that, the quality of the panel is outstanding and it feels like another notch up from the PA27AC.
Every single ASUS ProArt PA32UC is pre-calibrated so that it guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, with ASUS adding that it has technology to ensure 95% uniformity compensation that safeguards users against brightness and chroma (color) fluctuations across the screen. Gamers might not care, but workstation users with huge video tasks will love this.
ASUS ProArt Calibration technology is also a thing, something that works on desktop, laptop, PC and the Mac. ASUS has everything but the kitchen sink, which I'm sure if you pushed them for they'll send you.
