Summary: This is my very first one star rating. I spent months of research to ensure I found the best value in an ultra wide monitor and was confident that AOC's 29" LED monitor was the one. It's less expensive than other available ultra wide monitors. Unfortunately, I have gone through 2 AOC monitors in 4 months. The first one was replaced by Amazon because the monitor didn't function for more than 48 hours.
vertical Red Line Dead Center - Horrible Customer Service

Summary: I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon for years now and this is the first time I have been motivated to write a review. I bought this monitor expecting it to work. Well it turned on and looked great until about 15 minutes later I noticed a red vertical line directly in the middle of the screen. I tried to contact the manufacturer and they never contacted me back. I waited for 3 days to hear from them. Nothing. I returned it to Amazon and purchased the Dell UltraSharp U2913WM.
Summary: Bought this one and a Dell version of the same monitor and this AOC one always flakes randomly blanking out and causing errors which you normally would blame the videocard for but if using dual display only the AOC has artifacting. The support team is slow to respond averaging close to 3 days for a response I just ended up unplugging and plugging back in the old 24 inch that it orignally replaced.
Pros: 29 Inch in the new superwide aspect ratio is great for multitasking and gaming with a new viewpoint.
Cons: Dont expect to be able to use this vertically for you coders out there. AOC brand sadly lives up to expectations and failed on me pretty quickly.
Summary: This monitor does not come with a dual link DVI. Why would they it make too much sense. Why would I buy this monitor and they give me a VGA cable what is this non sense.
Pros: Very good image when it was working
Cons: After playing with it for a week or so red vertical line appear on the left side of the screen. When I set the resolution to 1920X1080 there is no red line but when I max out the resolution there is a red line appear at the same exact spot cut off if you running at 1920X1080. I would like a new monitor please.
Summary: Could have bought two 15" monitors for half the price and got better picture quality and probably better help. Have hooked up 4 different computers all with different video cards including Display Port, HDMI, DVI and VGA. Same PBP problem with all. OSD settings lock up and limit settings choices.
Pros: Fits the limited space I have available.
Cons: PBP so distorted cannot read text or numbers unless resolution reduced from 2560 to 1680 and lower. No support from AOC, email response told me my problem was being forwarded to engineer, no further response after 7 days.
Summary: I had my first one in September the 18th I believe. Second week in turned it on and( DVI no input).. Tried everything, even changing the type of input to VGA, still no input. Told by repair companythat it may be faulty, they sent me a replacement.. It was opened,no doubt a refurbished unit, But no scratches or dead pixels so did not complain about it. At the end of the first week, turned it on No (DVI input..) Seriously?
Summary: I bought one of these, and after only a few weeks, the DVI input failed. Amazon immediately arranged a replacement, but when it arrived (with an opened box like others have reported), unlike the first one that had a perfect panel, it had a dead pixel and a double stuck sub-pixel (blue and green in the same pixel) near the centre of the screen. Incredibly annoying, but well within the ludicrously-generous ISO 9241-307 Class 1 limits that the AOC EMEA warranty works to.
