Monoprice will launch the Dark Matter 32 gaming monitor this week. The 32-inch QHD monitor has the specs to compete with the best PC gaming monitors, including a 165Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and support for Adaptive Sync. Monoprice won't make a fuss about the new monitor until tomorrow, October 29, 2021, but the Dark Matter 32 is already listed on Monoprice's website for $400.

The Dark Matter 32 has a 2560x1440p resolution and 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles. The monitor is compatible with VESA mounts, allowing it to work with a variety of desk setups.

To connect to various displays, the Dark Matter 32 has two DisplayPort 1.2 connections and two HDMI 2.0 video inputs.

Dark Matter monitors have earned positive reviews from us in the past. Our executive editor Daniel Rubino gave the 27-inch Dark Matter gaming monitor a 4.5/5 in his review. Notably, that 27-inch monitor features an IGZO display rather than a traditional IPS. The 32-inch Dark Matter monitor has an IPS display.

As is the case with all monitors from Monoprice, the Dark Matter 32 has a one year PixelPerfect guarantee, meaning the company will replace a monitor for up to a year that gets any dead pixels.
