Corsair Xeneon 32QHD165 Monitor Review

Yes, you did read that correctly. Corsair has indeed come to market with its first ever gaming monitor, dubbed the Xeneon 32QHD165. As monitor naming conventions go, this one is about as good as it gets – it’s a 32in 2560×1440 display with a 165Hz refresh rate. It’s also using an IPS panel, offering a claimed 3ms G2G response time, alongside the addition of quantum dot technology. It sounds good on paper, but has Corsair really nailed it with their first attempt?

For its first gaming monitor, Corsair hasn’t simply slapped its logo onto an IPS panel and called it quits. Instead, the Xeneon 32QHD165 has a few nifty features to take a look at in this review, including iCUE integration, a snazzy cable management solution and a uniquely designed stand. All of that doesn’t come cheap however, as the Xeneon will set you back £699.99 here in the UK, or $799 for US buyers. Let’s find out if it is worth the cash.
