ASUS PA329C Reviews
Good display with a couple things holding it back.
I've had this display for a few weeks now. It is a replacement for the Benq PD3220U I tried and returned. What I like about this ASUS model is it supports hardware calibration while competing in price with other displays that only support software calibration. It also has a brighter image output. This is for when I'm working from home, not a controlled production studio environment, so the extra brightness is needed. I find the on-screen menu system is pretty easy to navigate, so that's good as well. There are a couple negatives though. One is the ASUS calibration software on macOS. It hasn't been updated in a couple years, and would repeatedly become unresponsive on my M1 Max MBP. I could not even start a calibration, which totally defeats the purpose of this monitor. So I used a spare PC to run and store the hardware calibration. If you don't have access to a Windows PC, you might hold off on this display until they update their software. Also, although the native display on my MBP comes on immediately when waking the computer, the ASUS display takes ~10sec. That's a bit annoying. Otherwise, I like this display and don't really know what other option there is for these features in this price range.
Great Monitor So Far!
I purchased the PA329C because I wanted a color accurate monitor that could be hardware calibrated, but didn't want to spend a small fortune for one. I came across the PA329C and it fit the bill spec and price wise, so I figured I'd give it a shot. So, far I am impressed with the color reproduction and accuracy. I had a small hiccup with the ASUS ProArt calibration software not recognizing that the USB-A to USB-C was connected to my PC, so I was unable to calibrate the monitor. After a bunch of back and forth with ASUS support, which is about useless in my opinion I had no resolution to the this issue. I found on my own that the PA329Q required a ProArt_Calibration_Device_Driver in order for the PA329Q to be calibrated with the ProArt calibration software. After doing a comparison between the PA329C and PA329Q they appear to be pretty much the same monitor, so I figured I'd try installing the ProArt_Calibration_Device_Driver and see if it would resolve my issue. And much to my surprise it did and I was able to finally calibrate my PA329C. The monitor itself is great, but ASUS support not so much. After 3 weeks of multiple daily back and forth emails and using their chat line I got no real solutions from them. So, if you want what seems to be so far a great color accurate monitor that can be hardware calibrated at a reasonable price, then the PA329C is a great option. Just be prepared if you have any issues, that ASUS support is subpar to say the least.
Best value for the spec
There's a reason this monitor has been sold out on/off for the last six months. For design/photo/video work, it checks all the right boxes, it's screen ratio (3840x2160) is easier to work in with multiple apps and/or one with room for all your menus, and for me, it's better with one of these than two smaller screens (plus laptop screen). For just over 1K, you can't go wrong with this! I use this plugged into a fairly new laptop via the supplied USB-C cable running a nVidia 3080 card. So far, so good, and no dead pixels nor screen bleed. I was using an older NEC IPS monitor prior (non 4k/HD) and what a difference. It's bright, accurate, and it let's you choose the color mode you want to work in (sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, etc.), depending on web vs photo vs video. I recommend going through the menu system to look at the myriad of adjustments you can make...there's one for every possible thing you could think of. Also, check the input first as it comes with the Display Port enabled by default...thought it wasn't registering and then changed it to USB-C and voil, all is right. Currently, I can't find any cons to it. Overall, I highly recommend this monitor. It's my first Asus, and if it holds up, won't be my last.
Good screen with lots of connectivity and 4k rez
I don't like Asus dead pixel policy on screens. Screen currently has 4 dead pixels and monitor is only two months old. Other than that it's a very nice 32 inch 4k monitor with 3 year warranty.
I had a few dead pixels on the unit I received. They were next to each other forming the shape of a small beard stubble or eye lash. I expected better from ASUS, a reputable manufacturer. I would guess they do at least a simple visual quality before they pack and ship the unit. The dead pixels on my unit were impossible to miss. They were not in the center of the screen, but nevertheless I noticed them within 1 minute of turning on the screen. It's disappointing that ASUS, the manufacturer, still shipped this unit at full price, instead of labeling it as B-stock and let B&H and the customer know what they are getting. It seems ASUS must be betting on customers just not checking or noticing the dead pixels.
Excellent color accuracy, which was what I needed for video. Especially in 709. The price point was just right. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, however, it is worth every penny. I did not want to spend 3, 4 or $5,000. The only negative is that the price dropped $50 just after I bought it. Definitely worth the money though!!!
Great monitor with a couple of nits to pick
Overall I'm quite pleased with the PA329C, which I bought to go with my Mac Studio computer. I'm a professional photographer and was looking for a 32-inch 4K display that would cover all or most of the Adobe RGB color space without breaking the bank. The Asus does that. Setup was simple, and I connected the display to the computer using the supplied HDMI cable. Out of the box the display was bright and crisp with no sign of any dead pixels. The OSD is easily accessible and adjustable thanks to the joystick at the lower back edge of the monitor. The display easily slides up and down to the desired height and can easily be rotated 90 degrees to access the various ports on the lower back of the monitor. I'd give it five stars except for a couple of things. There are three USB type A ports on the left edge. I've found them to be a little loosey-goosey, so that often when I plug in a thumb drive it won't stay sufficiently tight for the drive to stay mounted. Also, I was looking forward to the monitor having built-in speakers. But, they're of limited value, at least when used with a Mac, because volume isn't easily adjustable. It's necessary to go into the OSD to change the volume, which is cumbersome. As a result, I had to buy some good Logitech external speakers that I can easily adjust using the volume knob on my Das Keyboard. I checked with Asus support about the speakers and they replied quickly to say that the OSD is in fact the only way to adjust the internal speakers. These two things aren't deal-breakers for me but not something I'd expect in a monitor at this price point.
Good monitor, alot of back light blow out that follows the mouse around on dark background....dont k ow if thats normal. Other than that the color is amazing, almost to good. Very vibrant.
