Conclusion: When I first got this panel in to have a look at, I didn’t honestly know what to make of it. Considering that it is far from the typical 16:10 and 16:9 aspect ratios that we have been very much used to for a number of years now, having a panel that is super wide and isn’t as tall as I have used up to this point (on a single panel that is), I have to say that I’m pleasantly surprised at how ‘comfortable’ it feels to use.
Pros: Super wide 21:9 aspect ratio, Wide range of display connections available including MHL-HDMI and DP-out, Ultra thin bezel, AH-IPS panel with great colour reproduction, VESA mountable, PIP and PBP input modes
Cons: No height adjustment, USB hub would be a welcome addition
Conclusion: The 2,560x1,080 resolution enables either a super-wide desktop or, more likely, two 1,280x1,080 windows situated side-by-side. A 21:9 aspect ratio and the 29in panel size means the Q2963PM feels like a standard 23in, Full-HD monitor that's been stretched out on both sides - the dot-pitch is almost identical in both cases. We prefer to use it in the single-page, super-wide aspect, enabling programs such as Adobe Dreamweaver and Photoshop to scale nicely across the screen.
Review Roundup: Get a bigger picture with an ultrawide 29-inch display
4 July 2013
Summary: This display isn't as accurate as some other ultra-wide displays we've tested, but it's also priced much lower than professional-grade monitors. Dell consistently produces great monitors, and the U2913WM is no exception, although we don't care for the Autocolor feature that "optimizes" the display for the currently active application. This is one of the best ultrawide displays we've tested, but it's also one of the most expensive.
Pros: Very good off-axis viewing, Crisp and clean text, Excellent off-axis viewing, Very flexible stand, Overall very good image quality, IPS panel delivers great off-axis viewing, Very good height-adjustable, pivoting stand, Pivots, Very good overall image quality, Built-in USB 3.0 hub, Very good off-axis viewing
Cons: Subpar speakers, Limited ergonomic flexibility, Whites have a yellowish tinge, No audio speakers, Autocolor feature has its quirks, Mediocre integrated speakers, Limited ergonomic flexibility
Excerpt: 53 Flares 53 Flares × With the growing rise in popularity of new high resolution Ultra Wide monitors we take a look at the AOC Q2963PM. This panel has support for both Dual Link DVI and DisplayPort connectors and can output at 2,560×1080 resolution. If you need a lot of deskspace is this a cost effective upgrade at the end of the year?
Excerpt: The AOC Q2963PM - MYMULTI-PLAY is a monitor that incorporates a 29” 21:9 superwide format display (IPS LED-backlit with a 2560 x 1080 res). Which in English is a ratio that can eliminate the black bars at the top/bottom of the screen normally associated with watching movies.
Excerpt: It’s time to go wide again with the second of the ultra- wide panels in this round up. Like the NEC model, this is 29in of LCD screen, with LED backlighting and a resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. But that’s where the similarity stops. The AOC is lighter at 6.9kg, arguably much more stylish with a gun-metal grey finish, and is shorter.
Ultra-wide 29in display, good screen brightness and colour consistency, stylish cabinet and good selection of interfaces, quick refresh rate, very good value.
Below par brightness and contrast, some wayward colours, stand is very short and doesn’t rotate, not much vertical resolution.
Excerpt: Pokukujete po filmovém monitoru? Nepřesvědčil vás Dell U2913WM? Možná právě pro vás je tu nový AOC Q2963Pm, který poskytuje za malý peníz slušný zážitek. Navíc přidává i slušné barvy bez kalibrace!
Pros: Opravdu slušné barevné podání (pozor však na zabudovaný profil), + Dobré pokrytí sRGB gamutu, + Regulace jasu bez blikání, + Vyrovnaná odezva bez překmitů a s regulací
Cons: - Ergonomie a konstrukce, - Dell U2913Wm má daleko lepší podsvícení
