      Great budget monitor

      I was able to get this monitor on sale and it has been great to me for the last month. Colors really pop to me and everything is so much clearer. Coming from 1080p the difference is night and day. There is some color shifting when looking from different angles but unless you're super picky and for whatever reason viewing at different angles, this shouldn't be an annoyance for you. If you ran this monitor in a pair then it might be an issue. The 4K is incredible. Toms hardware has a pretty nice review on their website. I am using this monitor for music production and I can see my entire project loaded up in the DAW thanks to the 28 inch screen. I thought the colors looked really good how it came honestly. I didn't care too much for the other settings and just left it how it was when it arrived. This is a great entry level 4K monitor especially if you're on a budget. Also, gaming looks great. Even on low settings 4K really looks intense. Make sure you got a good gpu. I recommend picking this up on sale if you can. Heads up, the inputs on the back stick out of the monitor and also the monitor only tilts. It's not adjustable up or down. Not an issue for me. Buttons aren't that bad honestly. Not the greatest though either. I cant comment on freesync since I'm running off of a laptop with a GTX860M. Also, DISPLAY PORT IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET 60HZ 4K UNLESS YOU HAVE A HDMI 2.0 PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER!!! I had to grab a display port to mini display port for my laptop because mine doesn't support a HDMI 2.0 cord only HDMI 1.0. So I was only getting 30hz 4K and that is entirely unusable. So make sure you got HDMI 2.0 port and cable for your computer or get a display port to get that full 60hz 4K.

      Good Cheap 4k monitor that still has a VGA port.

      The Good - Affordable when on sale. -Real 38140x2160 resolution + Freesync. -VGA PORT for retro machines, you won't need a separate converting box for this monitor, and you can actually have your old 486 hooked up next to your new Intel\AMD-whatever, and the scaling is ok. -Real actual buttons for the OSD controls under the monitor face. These are not touch interface bull that can be interfered with by radio signals, that so many modern monitors want to use. -TN panel with a low response time, making this a monitor capable of actually playing very fast 2d side scrolling games, without heavy blur. Not as good as a CRT, but as good as your going to get for an LCD. -Dithering\banding not as heavy as other LCD's I've used. The Bad -Washed out oranges\browns no matter what contrast\bright settings used, glaring when used next to an acer that is really bright and solid on orange\browns. Probably wouldn't of noticed as much if it wasn't for this. I wouldn't get this monitor for professional photoshop work or something, Definitely a gaming monitor. -external power brick, with a short cable on the DC side, really 1 more foot of cabling would of been nice on the DC side so it doesn't dangle 3 inches off the floor. Expect to have to velcro the brick to the backside of the monitor or desk. - OCD is sluggish to navigate - OCD source input is a pain to use compared to most monitors. Requiring multiple presses to select a source then another to actually switch, instead of just pressing it once and going to the next source. Very odd design choice. Despite the negatives the positives for me make it a 5star. But if BB here had a 4.5 rating that's what I'd actually give it. The good far outweighs the bad, for what I actually do with this monitor.

      Bad color but big

      Posted

      I always read review about products before I buy them but it always seems that they are biased to the product. I am very critical of technology and strive for perfection. But apparently the reviews that I have seen have been very "WOW look its SHINY it must be GREAT!" Because this product does not deserve 4.5 stars at all. So i bought 2 of these monitors for my docking station with my laptop that has a 4K IPS display on it and is extremely accurate. The only reason I point this out is I was unsure about the TN display vs IPS display. This is something that I could not experience in the local store. The selection of displays in this location are minimal. These monitors do not compare to the laptop screen at all. I did not expect them to be the same quality of my high end laptop but I did not expect them to be this far off either. The color reproduction is no where close to accurate. These monitors are very flat and dull looking. Everything on the screen seems to meld together. Where as I am use to colors being very vibrant and making things stand out. These monitors seem to make things hard to read and seem fuzzy when compared to the IPS. When having the 2 displays side by side and displaying the same screen they do not match at all. In having open a website that has blue on it one of them looks light blue while the other looks like a darker blue. This is out of box with equal settings. While typing this review I have noticed that on my high end laptop there is a gray box that follows the box where you are typing. This is almost non existent on the AOC and impossible to see. Also the viewing angles are extremely bad. Depending on where you are sitting, like I am 3 inches off center of the monitor and the left side of the monitor is a cool white where as the right side is a warm white. This moves from side to side as you move your head 6 inches from left to right. The size of the monitor is impressive and the construction is decent. The monitor does come with cables to hook it up. I did not see where this was said when purchasing them. I am of course returning them tomorrow and going to look at another solution. Also they have went down in price dramatically since I ordered them 3 days ago.

      Decent value

      This monitor is decent value for the money, but quality control is a question with AOC. I was upgrading from the 1920x1200 24" Dell IPS display and made the mistake of setting too low a budget for 4k. I thought the high res was more important to me than the poor color accuracy and viewing angles of a TN panel. This was a mistake. Aside from the colors never looking as good as my Dell IPS, I could also never get the right black level/contrast. Either the blacks are all grey, or a bunch of the colors melt into the black. No good medium. Also I noticed 2 dead pixels and 4 stuck pixels on my monitor after a couple days. I returned and I'm saving more money for a 4k Dell IPS. If you are on a budget, want 4k, and aren't comparing to an IPS display, this is a great buy (if yours doesn't have any bad pixels). Otherwise, spend some more money and get something nicer.

      Great Entry Level 4k Monitor

      I bought 2 of these during the Memorial day sale. Two of these provide quite a bit of screen real estate. Are there better monitors out there? Sure but 2 of these for under $600 is pretty hard to beat. I will list some pros and cons below. Hope it helps! Pros: Great resolution 3840x2160. Make sure your GPU is capable at this setting Has VGA, HDMI, DP, and DVI inputs Comes with VGA, HDMI, and DP to DP 6 ft cables Fast refresh rate No tools required for stand Cons: No Vesa Mount No DVI Dual link cable. If your video card is a dual DVI output, you will need to purchase a cable. Stand is limited. Does not adjust up and down, only tilts Has about a 1/2"-5/8" bezel all the way around. most of the newer monitors have a bezel free design. May be important to some!

      This monitor was purchased as a Christmas gift at a very good price. Overall it is a decent monitor for the money. One of the outstanding features is the fact that you can connect VGA, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort whereas most monitors in this class and price range only allow DisplayPort and HDMI. A recommendation I would make to anyone purchasing a large format 4K monitor would be to make sure your video card supports the resolution this monitor is capable of displaying otherwise you are not taking full advantage of what you have purchased. The other issue would be the distance at which you are viewing the monitor, buying a monitor that is too large causes eye strain and neck strain because you are not able to see the entire screen in your field of vision, this would be similar to sitting too close to the screen in a movie theater.

      I really like this monitor. I've got it hooked up to a MacBook Pro 13" and it works like a charm. My only concern is that it (or the MacBook, can't tell which) seems to be sensitive to static electricity. I'll move my feet on my hardwood floor, and the monitor will flicker black. Really strange. That's my only concern. Other than that it's been great. Nice colors and depth, good blacks and looks fantastic with graphics applications and games. What makes me a bit excited is the text clarity. I work as a software developer, and as such I stare at text on the screen every day and having something that is easy on the eyes is key.

      not using it for gaming, just to get a lot of stuff on one monitor instead of two or three. works great for that, but wow is the text small. probably helps to be nearsighted. The AOC screen splitting software allows multiple options, eg, two side by side, 4 quadrants, and more. One feature i do not like about the software, however, is a screen segment is automatically filled when you put a browser window in it. For example, if i have the software set up for two side by side segments and have a browser window open in the middle of the screen and try to widen it, it will automatically fill one of the two segments--not what i intended.
