The Asus PA32DC, with its premium price, offers outstanding print photo editing quality and HDR gaming and media consumption experiences due to its excellent color accuracy and high static contrast ratio. The OLED technology delivers deep, true blacks and a broad color spectrum, making it suitable for digital photo editing and HDR video editing. However, it falls short for competitive gaming, as it has a higher response time and lacks variable refresh rate support. This monitor favors creatives and media enthusiasts over gamers. Casual gaming is possible, but competitors requiring quick reflexes and the smoothest experience should look elsewhere. Its 32-inch size and 4K resolution provide a sharp image, beneficial for productivity tasks, but it might not be the top choice for intense multitasking due to its modest size. Give Feedback

Zachery Cuevas | February 2023
"All in all, the Asus PA32DC OLED is a superbly crafted display for experts in their craft. From filmmakers to colorists and everyone in between, this OLED display comes with just about everything that’ll satisfy professionals and enthusiasts. The undisputed champion of content creation monitors might still be the Apple Pro Display XDR for some, but the Asus PA32DC OLED puts up a heck of a fight for several grand less."
