At Lenovo’s Tech Life | Several monitors were showcased at the IFA event, highlighted by the upcoming Legion Y32p-30 gaming monitor and the ThinkVision T34w-30 curved monitor.
The Legion Y32p-30 is an impressive 31.5-inch monitor with an equally impressive resolution of 3840 x 2160. The response time is an extremely fast 0.2 ms with a refresh rate of 144 Hz. That’s already great specs for gamers, but it also has something to offer creatives, with a 99% sRGB for coverage and a 112% sRGB for color gamut coverage.
Seeing it in action really shows the high quality, with a crystal clear image that will make any video game or creative project pop in color. Brightness also helps, peaking at 400 cd/m2.
It also features an excellent port selection for a monitor: two HDMI 2.1 ports, one audio jack, one Display Port 1.4, one USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A and one USB Type-B. These features and specs could easily put it in the running as one of the best gaming monitors to be released this year.
The Legion Y32p-30 gaming monitor is expected to launch in December 2022 for $749.99 (about £650 / AU$1,100).
There’s also the ThinkVision T34w-30, Lenovo’s 34-inch curved monitor option. It has a resolution of 3440 x 1440 (21:9) with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, which is perfect for more casual use as a business PC monitor or a screen for watching movies. Thanks to 99% sRGB coverage, it can also act as a monitor for creative projects.
The curved aspect really adds to the monitor, allowing for a more complete view of the screen, but not so curved that it becomes overwhelming or claustrophobic. And the size helps, as it has great screen space without having to stretch your neck or lean back in awkward positions to view the entire screen.
The port selection is pretty good too, as it includes an Ethernet port, an HDMI 2.0, a DP 1.4, a USB Type-C port, four USB Type-A ports, and an audio jack.
The ThinkVision T34w-30 is expected to launch in January 2023 for $849 (about £740 / AU$1,250).
