Product Overview

ASUS ProArt PA32UCX is a 32-inch flagship 4K professional monitor with Mini-LED backlighting that provides 1152-zone local dimming. Thanks to Quantum-dot technology, the PA32UCX provides broad coverage over DCI-P3, Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec 709 and Rec 2020 color spaces.
Compared to the PA32UCG launched earlier, the PA32UCX offers more I/O options, slightly higher DCI-P3 coverage, and higher contrast level; as a tradeoff, the PA32UCX offers only 60Hz refresh rate. The two are otherwise rather similar, down to the design details.
ASUS also offers a version with off-axis contrast optimization for the most demanding professionals, the PA32UCX-P. Both variants can be purchased with the X-rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter as a kit (PA32UCX-K and PA32UCX-PK).
The corresponding 27-inch monitor is the PA27UCX (PA27UCX-K).

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The PA32UCX lets you toggle between bright and dark settings to better suit different room light levels. The controls were very precise, including the gamma presets that measure identically to their labeled values. Sluggish control response made it difficult to stay alive for more than a few minutes at a time. If frag-fests are your favored method of relaxation, this monitor will disappoint.

Pros
  • Incredible contrast and resolution
  • Dolby Vision
