Sometimes the fancy extras in the best gaming monitors just get in the way. Sometimes, you just want a big display with a high refresh rate, and not to worry about 4K, curves and HDR. It also helps when the display comes at a great price. That's why we're putting a spotlight on the Westinghouse WM32DX9019m which is currently just $239.99 (down from $300) at Newegg.

The Westinghouse WM32DX9019 sports a 5 ms response time, a 144Hz refresh rate and a VA panel for good viewing angles and colors. If you have an AMD card, it's also FreeSync capable — which means it also has the potential to work with Nvidia's G-Sync Compatible mode, though it's not officially on the list so it may exhibit artifacts.

This is a 32-inch 1440p display as well, which means you don't need the fastest graphics card to hit playable framerates. That's good, because the supply of GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 cards remains extremely limited and may continue to be restricted until 2021. In the meantime, you can look forward to AMD's Big Navi, which will be revealed in full at the end of this month. Hopefully AMD can give Nvidia some needed competition with the RX 6000 cards.

This is a big and bold 32-inch gaming display with all the important stuff and none of the fluff. 1440p 144Hz gaming in a VA panel makes for a great viewing experience.View Deal

Based on what we've seen of AMD's current RX 5700 XT and RX 5700, existing AMD cards will work just fine with this display, while the upcoming GPUs will allow you to release its full potential in the near future. There's plenty of hype about 4K and now even 8K gaming, but for our money it's going to be difficult to beat the 1440p 144Hz monitors.

    Westinghouse used to be one of the largest electronics companies, and Nikola Tesla briefly worked for them, being one of the first companies pushing AC power. Over the course of the last century, they operated a number of power plants, and were a leading brand for electronics and appliances. They apparently made a number of bad business decisions though, and the company was largely split up and merged into other companies by the end of the 1990s.

    As for these monitors, they appear to be from a Chinese company who is just licensing the brand-name. I couldn't find any professional reviews of this unit, so it's anyone's guess how it compares.

    Westinghouse TVs and monitors have been around for a long time. Nearly all consumer electronics are made in China, so that doesn't really mean much these days. Every RTX 30-series card I've looked at for example has a "Made in China" stamp somewhere. As far as quality, I'd probably put them below Vizio in the TV market -- so not awesome, but not terrible either. (I own a Vizio TV that works okay, and was a pretty good deal at $300 for a 65-inch TV.)

    Well, I meant more along the lines of it apparently being a Chinese-owned company based in the US that is selling screens under the Westinghouse brand, and not actually Westinghouse as it existed for most of the 20th century. That's not to say the screens are bad or anything, just that its not exactly the same company from decades ago.
