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.
Summary: The AOC Q2963PM 21:9 SuperWide Monitor arrived well packaged and was incredibly easy to set up. I found the 21:9 29″ panel a little strange at first (almost like viewing through a letter-box), but after a couple of days I got used to the new format. So used to in fact, that I really didn’t want to part with it! The monitor looks sleek and minimalist and would suit any environment, more importantly the panel is sharp, colourful and concise, in short, Stunning!
Excerpt: 6 Flares 6 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: The AOC q2963Pm isn't the most attractive 29in monitor we've ever seen, but there's a lot to like about this ultra-wide display. Its industrial slab-like design is a world away from the sleek curves of the LG 29EA93, but this 2,560x1,080 IPS display is great for multitasking with lots of individual windows and lending a more cinematic feel to your films and games. Despite having a huge stand, the AOC q2963Pm is not height-adjustable, so it felt a little low on our desk.
Обзор и тесты AOC q2963Pm. Самый доступный 29 дюймовый монитор с соотношением 21:9
17 December 2014
Summary: AOC q2963Pm продемонстрировал отличные результаты в ходе тестирования. Единственное, честно признаюсь, формат 21:9 выглядит экзотично и непривычно, но к нему очень быстро привыкаешь и очень сложно потом вернуться к традиционному соотношению сторон. Самое выгодное предложение в случае этого монитора не сказалось серьезно на качестве исполнения.
