    Monitor has its heat production spread to wide area, not in one focused spot.
    And vertical monitor casing develops some airflow through it with warm air rising out from top and cool air getting in at bottom.
    Heatsinks are usually positioned to along vertical airflow.

    Compared to that brick PSUs are lot worser with zero airflow and wrapped inside thermal insulation.

    Are there gonna be 4k monitors with 21:9 aspect ratio and high refresh rate? That would be ideal tbh

    Viewsonic have announced another contender - the VX3220-4K-PRO. Might be an option for those who don't care about HDR yet. Info on PCMonitors.

    65w power on usb-c is nice to see.

    I still want a 32” screen if I’m honest, but don’t think I’ll be swapping any time soon.

    What are the chances of dead pixels on a B-Grade monitor? Can I easily return it if it has?

    You can return within 14 days if your not happy, just as you could buying new.

    Besides HDR that Innolux panel propably takes hit also in response times.
    And gamut is really more like "mid wide" compared to XG320U.

    At own cost, and returning monitors can be expensive. And it seems OcUK no longer wish to open up the shop so all returns have to be courier (which is infuriating to me as am local!).

    More than a none B-grade monitor.

    Its been returned for some reason. SOmetimes its nothing anf the person has just changed their mind. I've bought 2 B grade monitors over the years and both with perfect with no dead pixels and no BLB.

    But you only have to read these forums and seeing people returning 3 or 4 monitors of the same model before they get one they are happy with.....guess where these go for sale on their return?

    Any idea which panel the Viewsonic XG320U will be using? It looks the more sensible option as it`s not covered in RGB bling, pointless on a monitor IMO.

    Innolux crap panel which is used for XB323QKNV and FI32U.

    Looks like no in 32" size.
    LG 27GP950 seems to be only one with good level response times/low overshoot.
    So far others seem to be just slow, or response time has been achieved by more or less major overshoot.

    Monitor/panel makers should be kicked to nuts for delaying these monitors made with clearly outdated tech.
    Guess we now know why it has taken this long to get monitors with 2017 released HDMI 2.1...
    (and many don't even have real HDMI 2.1, but just some 24GB/s cripple variant)

    And if the 27GP950 has fans and coating of 27GN950 its for the recycling. I had it, it was unacceptable. Never seen such bad fans and coating before. Very grainy coating and buzzing, very annoying fans.
