The Gigabyte M32U offers a large 32-inch screen with a high 4K resolution, providing excellent image clarity and ample workspace for productivity. Ideal for creative professionals, its color accuracy is suited for digital photo editing. For casual gaming, the monitor provides a fair experience with features like variable refresh rate support, but competitive gamers might find its response time and ghosting to be limiting. The stand allows adjustments for comfort, and with multiple USB ports and HDMI 2.1 support, connectivity is versatile. While it can handle HDR content, its peak brightness might not deliver the most vibrant HDR experience. This monitor is a solid all-rounder at an upper midrange price, especially if your focus leans towards work and casual gaming rather than competitive gaming or the ultimate HDR media consumption.

Tom's Guide

Matthew Murray | June 2022
"The Gigabyte M32U gaming monitor is almost a slam-dunk choice, considering everything you get as part of the package. Gigabyte goes for broke with things like its built-in KVM switch and GameAssist, and those come close to paying off. Add in the well-executed, more familiar offerings, and this is a monitor that deserves serious thought if you’re in the market for what it delivers."
