The Asus PA329C is a premium-priced 32-inch monitor ideal for digital photo editing with a high resolution that provides good text quality and image clarity. Its color accuracy is excellent, supporting a wide range of colors suitable for print photo editing. However, for gaming, it offers a relatively low refresh rate and limited variable refresh rate (VRR) range, which means it's not optimal for fast-paced competitive games due to potential ghosting and slower response time. While it has good brightness, its performance in HDR gaming and media consumption is unclear. The monitor has multiple HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort, providing various connectivity options, complemented by a host of USB ports for peripherals. If you prioritize professional color work over gaming or require versatile connectivity, this monitor could serve you well. Give Feedback

Feroz Khan | February 2022
"Even at 32 inches, it’s just five inches larger than most professional display monitors, the ASUS ProArt Display PA329CV monitor seems a lot bigger. The color accuracy on the unit I received was excellent, and viewing high-resolution image files on it was pleasing to the eyes. It’s Calman verified, so you can be assured of Hollywood studio-quality color straight out of the box. With multiple USB ports on the monitor and HDMI and USB-C connectivity options, it stands up to the well-established Benq PhotoVue series of monitors."
