Monoprice 32-inch CrystalPro 4K Monitor review

Monoprice’s 32-inch CrystalPro monitor is a beautiful 4K, 60Hz, 16:9 display with a clean design and functional stand, providing an excellent  consideration when searching for a new business monitor. There are four video inputs, allowing for multi-device usage if needed, alongside a built-in USB-A Hub that can be routed to a computer allowing for data passthrough. The included stand connects to the monitor via the VESA mount and allows for a great deal of adjustments, including some helpful cable management.


The 32-inch CrystalPro monitor came in three main pieces: the display itself, the monitor base, and the monitor arm. In addition to those three main components were a handful of cables, an external power brick, and some screws.

We easily attached the base to the arm, forming the complete monitor stand, however while we were beginning to connect the monitor stand to the monitor, we discovered that the VESA mount was in a fixed position once mounted. Because of this, we could not rotate between portrait and landscape without unscrewing the VESA mount from the monitor and re-attaching it in the preferred orientation. 

First Impressions

Right out of the box, we were impressed with this monitor’s lightweight and thin profile. The bezels were small, and the nameplate on the front was sleek and minimal. Looking at the rear of the monitor, we were pleased to see a USB-C port, two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, two USB-A Ports, a USB-B port, a headphone jack, and a power connector.


Screen Size: 32 inches

Resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160)

Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Refresh Rate: 60Hz

Weight (including stand): 18lbs

Ports: 1 USB-C port, 2 HDMI ports, 1 DisplayPort, 2 USB-A Ports, and 1 USB-B port

One minor frustration we have with this is that there was a barrel connector to power the monitor, leaving us with a power brick between the monitor and the outlet, making cable management more difficult but not impossible.

Design and Build Quality

This monitor is very minimal and sharp looking in every way, offering a clean matte finish, helping to cut down any glare in a workspace, with the side and top bezels measuring under 6mm, while the bottom chin is 12mm bezel.
