« on: January 08, 2017, 01:03:42 am »
hi guys,

I'm planning to buy this gaming monitor,  ViewSonic 32 Full HD Curved Fast Action 144Hz Gaming Monitor XG3202-C

I don't see any online reviews about this monitor and Resolution is FULLHD 1920X1080(worried about pixelated display)
if you have any opinion about this monitor please let me know.
thanks!

If you sit even remotely close to a display that big, you're going to be able to see the pixels very easily. Your display becomes 'Retina' (i.e. unable to see the pixels) at 50 (4 feet 2 inches) inches away, with a PPI of 68. I personally was uncomfortable with a PPI of 89 at about 18 inches (1.5 feet) away from my old monitor. It may be better if you buy a higher resolution 60Hz monitor instead if you need such a big display. What will you be using this monitor for, on what PC specifications? There's no use buying a 144Hz display if your PC can't handle it.

144Hz isn't going to make a difference for coding and movies. For gaming it will, but a higher resolution display will make a far larger difference at that screen size.

Your PC isn't anywhere near powerful enough to maintain 100+ FPS on high quality settings at 1080p. Unless you plan to upgrade your GPU to at least a RX 480 or GTX 1060 (preferably a GTX 1070), you won't benefit from the higher refresh rate. A 7950 isn't going to be able to maintain acceptable frame rates at 1440p either, so it's best that you stick to a normal 60Hz 1080p monitor if you aren't going to upgrade the GPU any time soon.

yeah i know, it's true but i'll change my full system within 3 months. problem is 32 Gaming Monitor with 1920X1080. will it be a good monitor without pixelated issue from 2 to 3 feets. this monitor produce by viewsonic few months ago. but i couldn't find any reviews about the monitor.

I think its better for you to go with VX3209-2K monitor if you plan to use for Coding / Photo editing or Video Editing and less amount of Gaming.

Or even a Dell 2K monitor will be better with better quality. Each type of application needs different type of Monitor.

thanks for reply, yeah true. i have multi purpose for use this monitor, mainly gaming and coding, i was comparing with VX3209-2K and XG3202-C monitor,
 

VX3209-2K PROS - high resolution 2560X1440  CONS - Response Time - GTG:8ms(Type), 10ms(Max) / Colour Gamut 72% of NTSC (Typ) / Refresh Rate - 60Hz

the only issue i see in XG3202-C is 1920 X 1080 resolution, i never tried 1920X1080 resolution on 32 inch monitor, I'm wondering how it's looks on XG3202-C monitor(pixelated issue) and viewsonic mentioned this is a gaming monitor and their newly produced gaming monitors.

Taking a look at the specs, both those monitors seem to sacrifice image quality for size. I do agree though, pixelation might be an issue with both these monitors, unless you sit 5-6 feet away from it.

Update:

Tried the monitor, and I'm having mixed feelings. As I predicted, the picture gets a bit grainy and pixelated if you sit closer than ~4 feet to the monitor (this is personal though - might be different to someone else). I was perfectly comfortable sitting ~4 feet away from it with regard to the resolution. Image quality is decent, but not the greatest. Good enough for a gaming monitor. 144Hz is, well, 144Hz. It works as intended.

Here's the kicker though. This monitor has a pretty intense curve. For it to work well, you need to sit around 2.5-3 feet from it, or else it gets all distorted and weird. You see how this is a problem with the pixelation.

We have one on display at Redline. Feel free to drop by and have a look for yourself.
