All in all, Viotek GN32Q offers an incredible value for the price & it is easily of the best QHD gaming monitors in this price range.

  1. Hey Evald!
    Omg I heard so much about Viotek, it is to die for! Is there a version with a wider screen, or do I get a few monitors with the same design to give that experience?

    Viotek is not very popular in Malaysia though, and I can’t seem to find a reason why. I hope they would establish a base here :/

  3. This is superb! I fall in love with the design, I currently use the Aleinware 25, but I don’t like the design. It takes a lot of my desktop space. The Viotek GN32Q curved screen and its resolution of 2560*1440 is far superior to Alienware 25’s 1,920*1,080. That will be a very good upgrade. Thank you so much for the great review

  4. Hey, it’s me again, I wanted to see what other monitor reviews you have on your website. Viotek GN32Q, this model could be good in a small room, due to not having the ability to adjust the height. Place it on a tv stand or dresser and leave it there.>> I like that it has a modern look. What up with not putting USB ports in the monitors, is that a new thing? This model is missing a lot of input that I use.>>I will see what another review you have. Thanks

    1. Hey LeNard.

      I apologise for such late reply.

      I completely agree with Your idea of putting something beneath the monitor to increase its height. I think this is the best way to battle this problem when it comes to non-height adjustable monitors.

      As far as the lack of USB ports in monitors goes, well I have to say that I am very surprised to see that there’re still handful of displays that don’t come with this feature currently on the market. This is very weird and doesn’t really make a lot of sense for me because it definitely doesn’t cost a lot of money for these companies to implement USB ports in their monitors. In my opinion including USB port in the monitors should become a new standard, and hopefully we will see it in the near future. At the end of the day this is a pretty useful feature for a lot of people, having few extra ports is always a great thing to have, especially for people who may have lap tops that only come with few USB connectivities.

      Thanks for checking out my review and commenting.
