Exploring the Jlink 32-inch 2K widescreen monitor
Today, Jlink released a budget-friendly 32-inch 2K widescreen LCD monitor called the Jlink 32 inch C32QP1K (paid link). This monitor is supposed to be loaded with features like sRGB QHD, FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility, HDR display, Eye Care technology, VESA mounting support, and modern connectivity options. With its ultra-slim design, it’s suitable for both casual users and gamers.
Out of the box, you’ll find the following components:
- The 32-inch panel
- A non-adjustable 7-inch metal support column
- A 16 ½ inch diameter metal semicircular support base
- A pack of mounting screws
- One HDMI cable
- A 12V 4.5A 54W DC power supply
- A 3-pin AC power cable for the power supply
- A user manual
For I/O, it’s equipped with two HDMI 1.4 ports, one display port, a mini display port, a VGA port, and a headphone jack. On the other side, you’ll find the DC power socket and its control joystick.
The assembly process is straightforward. Start by popping off the cover, attach the support column using the provided screws, and finally, secure the metal base with a single screw. And just like that, you’re all set.
Now, let’s dive into the display. This monitor features an IPS panel that measures 32 inches diagonally, with an ¼ inch bezel to the top and sides and an ½ inch bezel at the base. It boasts a 104% sRGB color gamut and a maximum field-of-view of 178 degrees. With a 1200:1 ultra-high contrast ratio and a 16.7 million dispersion range, it delivers vibrant, bright, and realistic images.
To ensure eye comfort, it incorporates Flicker-Free and Blue Light technology. You can choose to mount it on a desktop, a dual monitor stand, or even on the wall since it’s compatible with a VESA mounting bracket. However, the only adjustment it offers is a -5° front and 15° backward tilt.
When it comes to resolution and refresh rate, this monitor supports a maximum of 1440p at 75Hz on both HDMI and display ports. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support HDR despite extensive testing on various devices. Now, let’s take a look at its on-screen display (OSD) menu.
To access the OSD menu, use the joystick and navigate to the desired setting. You can adjust brightness, contrast, and black equalization under the picture mode settings. In the display section, you can tweak sharpness. Under color, you have the flexibility to adjust temperature, color effect, gamma level, hue, saturation, and blue light settings.
The advanced settings include ultra-vivid, aspect ratio, and overdrive options. The input menu allows you to switch between various inputs, but unfortunately, there are no FreeSync, G-Sync, or HDR settings in this menu.
For display quality, rest assured, this monitor doesn’t disappoint, offering vivid colors and brightness. For gamers, its refresh rate of 75Hz, and it provides a smooth gaming experience.
This model, known as the C32QP1K, is the 32-inch 2K flat-panel variant. Jlink 32 also offers a 32-inch curved model and a 32-inch 1080p model.
Keep in mind that this particular model is flat, lacks HDR support, has no built-in speakers, and lacks FreeSync or G-Sync options in the menu. However, it compensates with a high-quality display and up to 75Hz refresh rate on all input ports.
