Gigabyte G32QC

The Gigabyte G32QC is an interesting alternative in a market full of gaming monitors, although it does have a lot of competition. If we are looking for a wide and curved diagonal, its 31.5-inch 1500R offers an ideal combination, especially for driving games. Obviously, thanks to its 165 Hz we can enjoy any competitive game and any shooter because even if we do not reach 165 FPS with our team, we will continue to take advantage of it thanks to its compatibility with AMD Freesync Premium Pro and Nvidia G-Sync Compatible.

BenQ EX2780Q

The BenQ PD2705Q is an update on the previous generation PD2700Q with better aesthetics thanks to its reduced bezels and with details such as automatic intelligent lighting. The rest of the specifications are really very similar, possibly improving the reproduction of color and brightness, although when we analyzed the previous model we did not have a calibrator and we cannot be sure. Of course, details such as the excellent factory calibration, the USB-C connector with PD charging that allows use with a single cable or the additional USB ports add up to a really interesting product for design professionals.
