Monoprice has released another monitor for gamers: the Dark Matter 32-inch Zero-G Curved Gaming Monitor with a QHD resolution and 165Hz refresh rate.
With a 1500R curvature, which should be a nice curve for a monitor of this size, the 32-Inch Zero-G Curved Gaming Monitor offers up better viewing angles and a more immersive gaming experience. Your games should also look sharp and run smooth with a 2560×1440 QHD resolution, Adaptive-Sync, and a 165Hz refresh rate.
