If you're an avid gamer looking for a larger screen, smooth gameplay, and don't mind sacrificing some image clarity, the Gigabyte M32Q with its higher refresh rate could be appealing. However, if you value sharper image quality for productivity or HDR video editing, and a monitor that excels in color accuracy, the Innocn 27M2U with its higher resolution and MiniLED technology offers superior performance for creative work and media consumption, despite a lower refresh rate that's not as ideal for competitive gaming. Consider the Innocn if budget-friendly and top-notch color are priorities, or the Gigabyte for a gaming-focused experience on a larger display. Give Feedback

Forbes

Mark Sparrow | November 2022
"The Innocn 27MU2 screen isn’t built to Apple standards, but it’s robust enough for desktop use and surprisingly lightweight, considering its image quality. The stand is rock steady and adjustable, plus the screen can be wall mounted. There are plenty of input options plus the ability to display two sources on screen at the same time."
