    ProArt PA32UC 32" 16:9 Wide Gamut IPS Monitor is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from CAN NOT BE PROPERLY CALIBRATED - a huge disappointment. I really wanted to love this monitor. I've been waiting a year for it to come out because it really looked like it could be what I've been waiting for.� The image out of the box is esthetically pleasing. Of course it is, it's a big bright 4K monitor. But I didn't buy it to have a subjectively pleasing image. I bought it because it was advertised as a color -accurate professional monitor. I bought it for objective reasons. I want to see colors as they're supposed to be seen. And I wanted hardware calibration built into the monitor as promised. I have been trying to get a good calibration for days with no luck. I am using the recommended i1 Display Pro, and all of the drivers, and Windows settings are as they supposed to be, but The ProArt calibration software is a mess. It crashes constantly, and often freezes the monitor requiring the power to be reset on a hardware level. And every time that happens the software forces you to wait another 30 minutes until it'll let you attempt calibration again. This is meant to protect users from calibrating a display that hasn't been warmed up to operating temperatures. But there is no override. All you can do is wait, even if the monitor is thoroughly warmed up. Sometimes the software will make you wait even when the monitor has been on and uninterrupted for all over a half hour.� The uniformity calibration doesn't Work. I've run it probably 30 times. 75% of the time it froze the monitor or crashed the software. And the attempts that did complete left massively inaccurate uniformity a huge section of the screen was too bright or had random color splotches.� The best I was ever able to do was to a basic color calibration. And each time I do that I get wildly different results. The only constant is that I consistently get a Delta E greater than 4 in the Red channel. That number is frequently as high as 6 or 7 and sometimes I get crazy numbers like 30 above Delta E for Red. This is apparent as the image (especially whites) are notably reddish even in the factory calibrated preset. So when they advertise this monitor as having a Delta E as less than 2 they're speaking on average. There could be one channel (in my case red) with an extremely high error and it would average out and allow them to have their marketing speak. I was able to get a fairly decent calibration using third party software like Displaycal. But that is using an ICC profile in Windows, which is obviously not the promised hardware calibration and something I wanted to avoid. But at least with DisplayCal I can take readings and manually adjust the RGB gain in the monitor menu to get a balanced white point. But I can only do that in the modes which allow me to do so. The two User Modes that store the hardware calibration have all of those controls locked. However after getting a decent white point I checked the calibration a day or so later, again using Displaycal, and noticed that the white point had drifted dramatically. None of this is acceptable for a monitor of this price, marketed the way it is. I have reached out to Asus on multiple occasions. I called them a week ago and spoke with someone in India. They said I would be hearing back soon. So far they've done nothing but ignore me. I complained on Twitter and an Asus Help profile responded asking for details. But they just gave me the standard basic tech support advice about checking cables and reinstalling software. When I said I did all that they never responded and just ignored me.� Once again, considering the price of this monitor, unacceptable.� In addition to the calibration issues I find the menus very annoying to navigate with the little joystick. And every time the computer starts it latches onto the first signal it gets and switches to that input. In addition to using this as a desktop monitor I also have it connected via HDMI to a Blackmagic Mini Monitor card for video editing output. So many times when I wake the computer from sleep the monitor finds that signal first and then I have to constantly switch it back to Displayport. Which is very annoying... Oh and in addition to all that I've noticed a few patches of dead pixels.� So this monitor is going back. I'm currently trying to decide is I should exchange and give it a second chance or if I should just get a refund.� This has been a huge disappointment, not only in the product and software itself but also in Asus customer service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Huge Nice. What do you expect for $2,000. The high pixel density naturally makes everything smaller. Took some fiddling around to adjust fonts sizes, etc., to make it work. Icons are still mostly smaller now, but hey -- that's life. The layout grid feature that I liked so much on my PA249,� is stripped down to just one large scale grid instead of several grid densities. Disappointing. The so-called speakers suck. They sound like vibrating pie tins.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A few days in I've had this for a few days now. I wanted to note that the initial calibration for sharpness was off for me. It was set to 50/100 out of the box which led to a noticeably grainy image. After setting this to 0/100 and then lowering the temperature one notch, I'm really liking the monitor. Great contrast and color. I was really disappointed at first impression and wanted to pass this along for anyone else in the same situation.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed So, I’ve just bought and returned two pa32uc. I would use this for games, imaging, and photos The second purchase was me hoping I was wrong about the first one The 384 Zone Fald does not work. Dynamic dimming has almost a full second lag before the bright spot dissipates. If you move your mouse around a dark color background, the monitor displays a medium bright comet of lit zone cells behind the movement Bright objects have bleeding auras around them Brightness - this has to be the lowest brightness monitor I’ve seen in 3840x2160 It’s dim, with contrast corrected and brightness set at 100 Text- is a mess due to some strange contrast ratios than can’t be resolved unless contrast is set to zero, brightness at max, and then the monitor is too dark to use, but the contrast and fonts made more sense. Color accuracy- easy, there isn’t any. Worst I’ve seen not counting some tube monitor from the mid 90’s Coil whine from built in power supply - a plenty. High pitched whistle. Dim corners� Monitor seems like a vignette setting in a video game Strobing from led - the setting gives you voices of of or 24-900+. � But it does �only 120 and the vibration is quite noticeable� HDR - Hdr1 did seem to make some elements eye watery bright while obscuring any and all surrounding detail. Hdr2 was overbright with even more blackout on surrounding detail. The monitor unsold any curiosity for hdr Build quality - nice stand� However, the monitor itself had a wavy lower bezel that ondulated in and out (only saw this on second monitor) My other monitor is a pa329q and it was so amazing to me how good it was when I plugged it back in after the pa32uc So maybe I just was unlucky in the monitor lottery, but both monitors a small clusters of dead/stuck pixels. I’m not the best person on pixel issues because I will return a 2000 dollar monitor over 1 dead/locked pixel. Luckily, I made the decision to return the monitors due to the other flaws, the dead pixel was just something additional I noticed Hope this helps
