Gigabyte Aorus FI32U 4K gaming monitor review

The appearance of the Gigabyte Aorus FI32U unequivocally indicates that the monitor is a gaming accessory even when it is turned off: the glossy “zippers” on the back of the case and the “predatory” shape of the stand immediately clearly hint that it is not an office model. After turning it on, the final suspicions are dispelled: the monitor has RGB lighting with the same “lightning bolts” and the AORUS logo on the leg. At the same time, the way Gigabyte Aorus FI32U looks from the back makes placing it with its “back” close to the wall seem like a waste of the work of the designers who worked on its appearance.


Around the screen there is a thin “invisible” frame that hides under the protective glass – along with the thin line of the side face of the body, the image is surrounded by a frame just under 1 cm wide on the sides and top. From below, the screen is visually supported by the body frame with the AORUS logo in the center. The stand is massive and large, with a metal base and “legs”. There is a handle in the upper part to facilitate transportation – this is not very relevant for an ordinary user, but it came in handy during testing (especially considering the significant weight of the monitor – more than 10 kg).
