A solid monitor for the price
Posted by: STEPD740 from: NJ on
I read about this monitor on the engadget blog. It looked pretty attractive and the article pointed me to the $300 bestbuy-only deal. When I checked this site, I was able to snag it for $269! Looks like it's back up to 300 though :-(
Anyway, some of the press releases say this monitor is "border-less". That is not true. The border is about a half an inch. It's relatively thin, but very much there. I must say this is a VERY attractive monitor and seems to be high quality in its construction. The LCD is clear and crisp with good colors and excellent viewing angles. With the 1920x1080 resolution spread across a massive 27 inches, the pixel density is not very high, and pixelation is noticeable up close. You can fit two large browser windows side-by-side comfortably, but for some people, 1080p may not offer the extra screen real estate you would hope for on a 27-inch display. It's worth pointing out that higher resolution 27-inchers (such as apple's thunderbolt display) are SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive (as in 800-1000 dollars).
The monitor has integrated speakers. I plugged my audio cable into the monitor, took a listen, and vowed to never do that again. To be blunt they are atrocious and didn't even rival the built-in speakers in my macbook pro. Not a big deal to me, bit for those interested in using this monitor for sound output, it likely wont do.
The touch sensitive buttons are fine. They are a little difficult to use but you wont need to use them much past the initial setup, and after that they are quite attractive and unobtrusive.
In short I am thrilled with the value. There are nicer monitors to be had, but not near this price point. Buy one now!

Confused about the choices...? Keep reading...
Posted by: theshield2004 from: on
I have had an older Dell 21 inch 1080 monitor for a solid 6 years*. It has served me well over the years but I wanted an upgrade. Holy smokes - the choices!! What size? What refresh rate? How many HDMI do I need? What response time? Ultimately, I asked myself a series of questions with multiple browser windows open.
What size is best for you? Well I could have done a 24 inch @ 144hz for about $250...this is better...(for me). I could have done 2560×1600 @ 60 hz...this is better... (for me). I could have done dual monitors or an ultra wide monitor...this is better...(for me). Out of the countless hours I spent looking at monitors...this is better...(for me). Why?
#1 Reviews. This was one monitor that has more reviews than most (currently nearing 400). Some reviews are one liners. Get to the good reviews and there is more to the story. People who want to talk about the product because they like it. That's what I want to see before going further. You can find an amazing deal on what looks like an amazing monitor, but without anyone to back it up, should you buy it?
#2 Price. This same monitor on Amazon was right around 250 last time I looked. Best Buy isn't usually the place for great deals but after looking at Newegg, Amazon, and here...screaming deal.
#3 Appearance. It's not just what's on the inside that counts (although that is important). Everything from the brushed aluminum to the glossy back and the matte front. They should all look this good.
#4 Insides DO count. I didn't need 144hz or higher resolution. That's me. I like 1080 gaming. I also can put my face about a foot away from the screen and tell you it's beautiful. Out of the box it was ready to go. The Witcher 3 and GTA V look stunning as do older games.
To sum it up, get a monitor you think you will like and make sure to read the reviews first. You can spend hundreds of dollars on something that should be great and end up with garbage. On the other hand, you can find great things without spending a bunch of money and it can be a better product that will last longer and perform better.
*I've never owned an AOC product till now (never heard of them).

Great Monitor for the Price
Posted by: boge513 from: Minnesota on
Great Monitor for the price! I use this monitor for photo/video editing and connect it to my laptop via HDMI cable. AOC Manual and customer service are not the best.

Perfect Budget IPS Monitor
Posted by: mk1gti from: Lynnwood on
I don't write many reviews so this gives you an idea of how great this monitor is off the bat.
I've been shopping around for a large screen IPS monitor for the last month when I found this one. I then went home and read the reviews, paying particular attention to photography website reviews and after seeing their endorsements went down to pick it up.
My photographs appear much sharper, text is fantastic for reading Kindle books and also for writing code. Bottom line is that everything displayed has much higher image quality across the board. The only thing left is to get a Spider image calibration tool and I'm set. Could not be happier or more satisfied with a purchase. Only downside is no VESA mount or DVI or Displayport connectors.

Great Value to Cost to Quality w/ a Caveat
Posted by: brppreacher from: Hampton, VA on
Before anyone says you should have realized this was only 1920x1080 before purchasing it, let me indicate that I did realize the resolution. I also went to the store to examine it before the purchase. The following is just from an Apple products owner who has become accustomed to Retina displays on an iPad and iPhone, as well as the gorgeous non-retina displays on an iMac and MacBook Pro. My review is not meant to dissuade from purchasing, but is simply from my perspective.
The pros are most definitely the value for the price and overall design. An IPS display at 27" with good brightness and contrast at this price is a great value. Color reproduction, the depth of black, and even the brightness of the whites are all great from my perspective. I really love the value. I also really love the display's crispness in terms of comparing it to my previous 23 inch display from Acer. It is a step up even though it is technically a decrease in ppi. For those accustomed to the typical monitor this monitor is a really nice monitor. And the look with the slim bezel and the "brushed aluminum" appearance is gorgeous. It is almost as if this monitor's design was targeting Apple users as the look blends well with my MacBook Pro. Overall, this is a really nice monitor for the price.
The biggest con for me is pretty exclusive to me. The pixels per inch on this monitor work out to around 81/82. My old monitor was 95. My iMac is 102, and my MacBook Pro is 110. My MacBook is my primary system so when using this monitor I drop almost 30 points of pixel density per inch. Of course, when compared to my iPhone and retina iPad the difference is even more staggering. The reality is that going between my "i" products screens and MacBook to this screen makes everything just seem less sharp. I had never owned a 27" monitor at this resolution as this is my first 27". And I have now used it for a couple of weeks to see if I could acclimate. It still seems fuzzy to me.
My only other complaint is that the base design seems fragile. For the price though I cannot complain too much.
Overall this is a great value for the cost. Just know that the 1920 x 1080 over 27" is really jarring for text and such if you are used to better resolutions on your other products. But for most this is probably not a problem so I would still really recommend it.

Dollar for Dollar a Monitor that Can't be Beat
Posted by: TechRider31 from: Old Bridge, NJ on
I did a lot of research before purchasing two of these monitors. I initially was going to buy two Apple Thunderbolt displays to go with my Macbook Pro Retina but my research revealed the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM was cheaper and better in several ways then I stumbled upon this gem. I use my monitors for work, photography and the occasional movie. I couldn't be happier. I picked up two of these on sale $269 at Best Buy for price of one Dell UltraSharp U2713HM. Unless you are a graphics artist this monitor will work for you. It looks elegant and performs way above average. Operating the adjustment controls will take some getting used to but not a deal breaker. You may experience ghosting when streaming video but that will be due to your signal strength not the monitor. I use them to edit my photographs and I was pleasantly surprised the printed versions of my shots were dead on. If you have cash to burn go for the Thunderbolt or UltraSharp but if you enjoy a bargain as I do, trust me, you're do no better.

Flawed from the start.
Posted by: vtgreg from: on
It had issues right out of the box with the headphone connection producing poor quality or static. I dealt with the issue by connecting external speakers to my laptop.
Then after 4 months, the screen began to black out for a few seconds and reset itself. It was definitely an issue with the monitor as the rest of the system was checked with another monitor.
Now the screen image has become unstable.
Since it is out of the short 90 day warranty, the only option is to ship it to their far off service center which means I still have to buy a replacement monitor.

Looks good even when it's off
Posted by: GraphicDan from: Ohio on
I'm a graphic/web designer who uses Mac products, so I expect a lot from a monitor. I couldn't afford an Apple monitor, so I searched for something "as close as I could get" to one. I think I found it with this AOC 27" IPS monitor.
The whites are as neutral as I've ever seen on a non-Apple product (perhaps even equal to an Apple). The color balance is great, and the viewing angle is as good as advertised. I feel confident that if I had a client sitting next to me, we would both see the same thing on screen (I've had the monitor for only 4 weeks now, so it hasn't been tested with a real live client present yet). I also edit video a lot and my footage looks great on this screen.
Although it played no factor in my decision to buy, when I brought my son over to let him see my new computer set-up, he remarked on how cool the monitor looked, even before I turned it on. And now that I look at it again, I have to agree.
The only down side is the quality of the speakers, But really, who expects a monitor to have decent speakers? I have an external set that I've enjoyed for years, so this is a complete non-issue for me. I consider it a plus that it as speakers at all, in case I ever need to take it with me for a presentation.
Performance like this at this price point (under $300) is remarkable. I highly recommend this to any user, for professional or home use.

I was worried about Aoc, never owning their products before. This is a just amazing. The design is great, the colors and sharpness and perfect.
The only thing is Bestbuy is wrong on the contrast ratio, its 20mil to 1, not 50 mil to one.

Outstanding display at a low price
Posted by: laughfactory from: Bozeman, MT on
It astounds me that I can be a display this good for this price. This monitor is exceptional. Great viewing angles, incredibly vivid and sharp. I love looking at it.
Additionally, the design of the monitor is, well, cool. I love the brushed aluminum base and area below the screen. It really looks slick. I also like how low profile this is for a 27" screen.
The bezel-less design is cool but don't expect the IMAGE to run all the way to the edge of the screen. As another reviewer remarked, there's a half-inch black border around the image. It looks a little trippy initially though you quickly forget about it. It looks like it *should* go all the way to the border, but apparently not.
Anyway, great screen, great price. I'm happy.
