The VA panel allows for 2x to 3x higher contrast ratios than your typical IPS alternative for truer blacks and more vibrant colors. At just $299, you can't find another 32-inch monitor from a well-known maker with the same features as the S3222DGM.

Dell is currently offering its 32-inch S3222DGM curved monitor for $230 USD off the original launch price of $529. Amazon is matching the new price as well if users prefer to purchase the monitor from there. The deal is notable for its high-end specifications and large size relative to other monitors in the same $300 price range.

The monitor includes the usual gaming-specific features such as a high 165 Hz native refresh rate for ultras-smooth movement, fast 1 ms to 2 ms response times to reduce ghosting, and AMD FreeSync to eliminate screen tearing. Colors cover 99 percent of sRGB as well to be fit for amateur graphics editing.

Now, the Achilles' heel for this particular monitor is its VA panel. VA has much more limited viewing angles than IPS meaning that the Dell S3222DGM is more for personal use instead of as a monitor for multiple viewers at a time. This disadvantage is a shame since the large 32-inch screen size would have otherwise been a good size for movie playback with friends or family.

Another drawback to VA is its slow black-to-gray response time which causes "smearing" when the screen is predominantly dark. Some users may not care about the smearing since most web content consists of bright colors, but IPS can offer a more consistent visual experience and from more viewing angles as a result.
