    Excellent Monitor for the price

    For the purpose I bought this, I'm thrilled. I wanted a second monitor to use at home with my laptop for productivity. My original plan was to get a 29-34 inch ultrawide (I do have discrete graphics in my laptop to power it) but the price of this panel and it's size caught my eye. Honestly for coding I really appreciate the extra height and it is plenty wide for tiling windows side by side. So for productivity this monitor is great. Something else I really liked was that it has vga input in addition to HDMI and display port which saved me having to buy another display port cable since I have enough old vga cables laying around and my laptop only has mini display port and vga out. Another plus is that the length of the power cable is generous (probably about 5-6+ ft) so it can reach if you need it too. It also has a reasonably small bezel (still far from bezel-less) which is great for minimizing the distance between it and my laptop monitor which makes for a more seamless experience. The cons, none of which are deal breakers for me and my use case, are the stand was somewhat difficult to attach a task made much easier with 2 people. Most of the plastic housing is glossy black, not matte. The support post that holds the monitor on the stand is not very rigid so if you bump your desk the monitor will shake for a little while (a matter of 2-3 seconds). It is only 1080p. The footprint of the stand is relatively large, but it is thin and flat so you can still use the space it takes up to hold smaller stuff. There is no up or down sliding adjustment, only tilt and no left right swivel. I haven't used it for gaming at all so I can't comment on that aspect (I'd expect it might be somewhat subpar for that use case, though it does claim decently low latency). For the price I paid I'm very happy with this monitor and if you are just looking to have some more low-cost screen real estate for productivity I would highly recommend this monitor.

    I was looking for replacements for two older, mismatched monitors for my Mac Pro. I was a bit reluctant to buy this one at first. I thought AOC was some sort of generic or off-brand company. After talking to the clerk, she told me that is a very good brand and not many people know about it. In the store the sample images they had onscreen looked really nice and it was on a deep sale price. Bought two. They have a lot of image settings where you can adjust as you need. They even have a "break reminder" that displays a pop up message on screen to take a break! Was cute for the first few times but I quickly turned that off. Still may be good for some people. I did notice after a few days (may have been there since the beginning) that one pixel was out on one monitor. Not anything for me to return and mostly not noticeable. Other monitor is perfect. So far no other dead pixels. The design is nice and modern, however I would have liked a black base instead of the silver. But it's growing on me. The one thing I wish it had was a height adjustment. For me, I sit high in a chair so I had to build some platforms for them to raise up to a better eye level. Also, one of the monitors was a real bear in the way you connect the base to the monitor arm. Just be careful that you don't scratch the front when trying to get the base on. The other one fit nicer. However, both did exhibit a bit of skew in that they are not level. I think it is in the design or construction for the arm and base connection. I had to put some small shims under to make them level as I am finicky about things like that! Overall, nothing that is drastically bad and the pros outweigh the cons.

    I wanted a iMac but wasn't ready to pay the iMac price O_o, so instead I decided to be creative and create my own iMac experience. I purchased the AOC - i2779vh 27" IPS LED FHD Monitor - Black/silver. Overall its a great purchase, but if I had just a little bit more money I would have opted to increase the resolution to get as close to the iMac resolution as possible (but then I probably would have been better off getting an iMac)! It's a compromise with the AOC monitor, but a good one. Perhaps when Apple gets more innovative and have more competitive prices, I'll switch out my iMac set up with MacBook Pro for an actual iMac :) FYI I have a Macbook Pro and also purchased the following items for my iMac set up (which also allows for dual monitors): Apple - Magic Keyboard - Silver Apple - Magic Mouse 2 - Silver Insignia™ - 6' HDDB15 Male-to-Male PC Monitor Cable - Black j5create - SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to VGA External Video Adapter - White AOC - i2779vh 27" IPS LED FHD Monitor - Black/silver

    I bought 2 of these monitors to replace a 22" & 19" dual monitor setup at home. I work from home sometimes, but I'm used to the dual 24" monitors I have at work, so I decided to upgrade my home monitors because they were too small and that made it harder to work from home. These 27" AOC monitors are SOOO much better, and now my 24" work monitors seem too small lol! Pictures and videos look so much better on these AOC monitors, and the text on webpages and documents is clearer and sharper. Makes me wish I had upgraded my monitors years ago. For home use, I use them for surfing the web, watching youtube videos, and reading documents. When I work from home, I access my work computer via VPN and Remote Desktop. I'm a computer programmer, so these monitors are great for software development, reading emails, and anything else that's work-related. I'm not a gamer, so I have no idea if this is a good gaming monitor. I am very satisfied with the quality of this monitor and highly recommend it!

    This monitor is inexpensive, but performs and looks like much more expensive monitors. I had my doubts, but after looking at a live demo at the store, I snatched up the last box. I went home, plugged it in, tweaked a few settings like color temperature, brightness, and contrast. There are a lot of settings to play with, and I will, but with just a couple of minor adjustments to please my eyes, I'm one happy camper after spending only $160.00. Vibrant and responsive display. Videos look great, no smearing or weird artifacts. Appearance: Nice brushed aluminum-look base (it IS plastic), brushed look on the back, all in all something I'm not ashamed to put on my desk. Other: I don't understand why others are moaning about poor instructions. It's a monitor. Plug it into the power and hook up the HDMI cable. Play with the the settings. Do you really need instructions?

    This is my second AOC monitor. The first (another 27" AOC,) I bought around four years ago. That one, I had to take back once due to some screen oddness. I was slightly hesitant about buying this one, but my overall experience with AOC has been pretty good, honestly. And when it was on sale at around $150 at the same time I was building up a new system... I had to jump on it. It holds up fairly well for games and is good enough for everything I do. I'll probably end up buying a larger monitor (as I'm getting into some 3d stuff as a hobby,) at which point this will pair with my other AOC on the old system. Can you get a better monitor for what this lists for? Around the same price... sure. This monitor, though, holds its own and I'd highly recommend it - especially on sale! - for everyday use.

    I'm a big fan of HP and samsung, so when I saw this monitor on sale, read review and saw that not at all different from the others. Better price and sales like a overall better than HP. I have my mac mini and HP desktop hooked up to it. Response time is quick and no loading time or delay in picture if I have my laptop hooked up like I did the first week of use. My only downside is that it does not have two HDMI but at least my HP desktop still has VGA which happened with that issue. I have two of these and I'm very happy with it. PLUS IT COMES WITH 3 YEAR WARRANTY SO YOU SHOULD NOT BUY THE BESTBUY ONE...EVEN THOUGH I DID BUT THEY BACK UP THEIR OWN PRODUCTS

    I bought this monitor from a Best Buy store and paid $169.99. I went online afterwards and saw that it was $149.99. Annoying. Anyway, the biggest problem I have is that there are integrated speakers that DO NOT WORK. The only way I can hear anything is with my headphones plugged into the back of the monitor or plugged into my CPU. There is no input for an audio cable in the back of the monitor, just one for HDMI, VGA, and headphones. I have messed with the sound settings for days now and researched until I went cross-eyed. I will be returning this monitor. The picture and the size is great, but I'm not paying good money for something that only partly works. Who knows, this is probably a dud since no one else has mentioned the lack of sound.

    I already had one of these monitors for my office. Bought a second for a co worker. Love the ips it does not strain your eyes and allows you to use it all day with no glare. It is the perfect size for my needs and I am on a computer all day long. Very nice design easy to set up and use. The only negative are the speakers are on the back of the monitor and tend to distract my co workers. When you plug in an HDMI cable you CANNOT use other speakers.

    I was planning on upgrading my 10yr old 20" to a 27"+, 2k -4k IPS but saw this one on sale at a great price... Bright color, a bit saturated out of the box but easily adjusted. Good blacks and contrast. Anti glare screen is a bit more glossy then my previous matte screen but still has less reflection and is much sharper. I was concerned about window screening at this size and a close viewing distance but it's scarcely noticeable to non existent. Minimal bezel is further masked with flat front and glass running to the top and side edges. Biggest complaint is no VESA mount. All around great bargain monitor for general use that looks like it should cost a lot more than it does.

    Monitor has a Black Onscreen bezel -Not Frameless

    Although the AOC website displays a frameless picture, this monitor is not truly frameless it has a black on-screen bezel which is thin if compared to older regular monitors. I also did notice few frame drops and few flickers when watching high-quality videos (1080P). But this should not be a deal breaker. It is a basic 27-inch monitor with one VGA and one HDMI port and a 3.5 mm input/output port, no speakers or webcam. The display is very bright even when the brightness and contrast levels are reduced to Zero. Also, I did not see any custom eye saver mode/settings. I will only recommend this if you are getting it for less than $150.

    I purchased 2 monitors and they work perfectly fine so far. However, I noticed something weird when I put the 2 monitors next to each other. One monitor was higher than the other one by approximately 0.5 cm. The height difference was very obvious and it annoyed me. I double-checked the assembly of the bases on both monitors to make sure I installed them properly and they looked ok. So I am guessing it might be quality issue with the attachment parts in the base that caused that height difference. I put a thick cardboard underneath one monitor to make them level. I can live with that. Overall, it is a great monitor for this price.

    As with most things we tend to think bigger is better in this case not so much. I hate this monitor. The price was what I could afford at the time so that was why I bought it. Now why I hate this monitor, 27 inch is just to big and the refresh rate is limited to 60 htz. For those reasons I do not recommend this for games like EQ2. For anything else you want to do it has a great picture, watching YouTube or other videos is very nice. And if your one who has difficulty reading small print the 27 inch display really comes in handy. For me its just not getting it at all.

    Excellent addition to my multi-monitor setup. I knew it didn't have built in speakers prior to purchase but have external surround speaker setup already. Although was rather odd that it was not VESA mount ready considering that my AOC i2769Vm 27-Inch IPS LED Screen has VESA mount and built-in speakers yet this monitor is newer. Oh and lastly, I really wish this monitor had a Display Port connection but, I can deal with HDMI. Anyway, I have access to a machine shop and designed and fabricated my own VESA mount, lol. All in all it's still a great monitor and has a beautiful picture!

    I purchased two monitors for a new computer setup. The color is great, monitors are light and has many features in settings. The only drawback is there are no speakers in this model even though my display detects that there is. Overall for the price, that is no big deal. Monitor comes with an hdmi cord so no need to buy one. I ended up purchasing a third monitor becauase of the quality for the low price. If you're into the latest Extreme games you may want to get a better monitor but for basic use this was it for me.

    Poor tech support

    Bought this monitor for my flight sim and photoshop. I check that I could change gamma and color temp for monitor calibration but did not realize that it had presets with names and not the actual values. Contacted tech support and well lets just say it was a waste of time and the monitor is now a waste of money for me. They could not give me the values needed so I could calibrate the monitor. And the first time I asked I was sent a manual to read which the tech had not read himself or he would have known that the info was not there.

    I picked up this budget Korean IPS screen as a stepping stone, but have been overall happy with it. In the future I intend to buy a larger screen with at least 1440p resolution for photo editing, but in the meantime this AOC meets my needs and is certainly a step up from my previous display. Connectivity lacks DisplayPort inputs, but I'm able to get by with HDMI, however this would restrict me from running two side-by-side from my Mac Mini. A decent budget pick up, and when I eventually upgrade I'm sure I'll find a new use for this screen.

    The images of the product were not for the product that arrived. I was disappointed to find that there was no hdmi out port like the pictures showed and I had to make another trip across town to get an adapter. I specifically picked this model for the ability to daisy chain 2 monitors together and not have to purchase an adapter. The product works well apart from misleading information on the website.

    I bought this on sale for about $150, and I'd say for that price it's pretty good. Picture quality is good so far. The build seems pretty flimsy to me. Doesn't appear this will stand up to much, so be very careful when moving it. Also, they're a little disingenuous with the size of the bezel. Out of the box it appears the bezel is only 1/8" thick, but when turned on the actual display is 3/4" from the edge. Small complaint, but it kinda sticks in my craw.

    The pictures on the website show a very very small bezel on the top and sides of the screen. In reality, those bezels are much bigger. I bought this monitor thinking the almost bezel-less screen would look nice in my twin screen setup, but i really feel cheated, as this is false marketing. As you can tell from my picture there is almost a finger wide bezel, nothing compared to the product images.
