Corsair Xeneon 32QHD165 32-inch QHD 165 Hz Gaming Monitor Review: Color For Days

With computer monitors growing in size by leaps and bounds, the lines between them and televisions have become blurred. A big TV costs less per square inch (often a lot less), but there are still good reasons to go for a dedicated computer monitor. If your priorities center around speed and resolution, a 32-inch screen is a good candidate. It will fit on most desks comfortably, while still providing a big picture. And its specs will allow the user to sit close and fill their peripheral vision with the gaming environment.

The 27-inch category is red hot right now, but for a little more money, you can get a full-featured, high performance 32-inch screen. If you want to stay in the performance sweet spot, that means QHD resolution. And if that appeals to you, Corsair has a monitor for your consideration, the Xeneon 32QHD165. It’s fast, packed with features and above all, colorful. That said, at $799 it’s also a substantial investment. Read on to see if Corsair’s first monitor earns itself a spot on our list of best gaming monitors.
