Summary: Great cheap daisy chain-able monitor. If you are not looking to spend mass amounts of money I would recommend this. Sucks that it does not have a versa mount nor the color is as vibrant as monitors from say Dell or Asus, still a good monitor all in all. Love the PIP feature of it, and that you can change the sound based on the PIP. Totally worth it!
Summary: Love, love, love this monitor. Color quality is spot on. Picture-in-picture mode is a neat feature to have. The software AOC gives you with the montior is, well, not very good. They give you the drivers and some window management software but Windows does a good job of that on it's own now in my opinion. The AOC version is just very buggy and snaps the window when you don't want it to.
Summary: The monitor has only been in use for a full day so I reserve the right to revisit my ratings. Having said that... This is my 1st 21:9 ratio monitor. I was concerned about the ability of my NVidia Quadro K5000 to drive the 2560 x 1080 resolution. After selecting "Advanced/Non-Standard" settings the video card permitted the higher settings. I am extremely impressed with the monitor. Web pages are fantastic in portrait mode, spreadsheets in landscape.
Summary: Overall I would call this a great deal, while the menu takes some getting used to it provides a very wide viewing angle the small bezel was nice until we turned it on to find there was a gap in the surface of the screen (it was built this way) so if you wanted to multi-screen game it would have a fairly wide gap.
Pros: Great Value Wide range of input options DP chainable Wide viewing angle Small side bezel
Cons: The menu structure takes some getting used to. Had to turn off and back on when a setting caused it to zoom in on a strange section of the display, strange 13mm gap around sides before you get to the bezel
Summary: The aspect ratio is something to get used to, and the Screen+ feature seems to be non-functional in Win 8.1. Otherwise, it is great, if a bit short on the vertical. I wish it was about 2" taller, but then I guess it would be a 31-32" and more expensive. I have 260 icons on my desktop (don't counsel me on my desktop - i like it that way), and this allows me to have them all on there with decent sized icons and font size.
Perfect productivity booster, gorgeous all around display.

Summary: I purchased this display as I've had two monitor setups for a long time but hated the extra used up desk space or wall space, extra configurations and cables. I saw this monitor in passing on a youtube video and started searching for it as I'd never heard of such a thing. After reading somewhat scary reviews elsewhere on the net regarding this product I didn't buy it at first, but the price cut was too much to resist so I pulled the trigger on it and I don't regret it...
Summary: I skeptically purchased this monitor and have thus far been pleasantly surprised. I'm running a retina MBP with a display port cable and a second PC with HDMI out. PBP works infrequently, but I don't think many purchase this for that feature. As a monitor its pretty great, good color, good black levels, no dead pixe!s. What I like most is that the monitor has a matte finish. Putting two fullscreen docs side by side is just awesome.
Summary: Enlarges viewing area to allow several apps to be opened and viewed simultaneously. Monitor sized does not diminish clarity. If I had one concern but not a show stopper is if the desk or table it is placed has any movement the monitor stand allows vibration movement especially of banging the keyboard as many do. But for me this easily cured by stabilizing the work surface.
Summary: This monitor is awesome for MMO's. I haven't tried a shooter with it, but in games like Guild Wars 2 and WoW, It's excellent looking, without any noticeable input lag. I may still return it, and get one of the Korean 27" 1440P monitors. The only thing that concerns me about that, is the warranty and service options (can buy a Square Trade warranty, however).
Pros: - Excellent picture - Great FoV for gaming - Looks great, with plenty of input options - 3 year warranty - Surfing the net is nice, being able to run two windows simultaneously.
Cons: - I keep missing the real estate along the top, compared to a 27" monitor. - Even with the matte finish, it still has minor issues in a bright room. - If you are too close, the sides get a little blurry. (my desk is small, depth-wise, so I'm a little closer than I'd like)
