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: 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)
Pros: The picture is excellent. Some of my Steam games support 2560x1080, which was surprising. The broad connection support is definitely a plus.
Cons: The height isn't adjustable. Not entirely relevant to me as it's close to the height I need anyway. My main qualm is switching inputs. I use both hdmi and dvi, and they don't automatically switch like my Samsung 27".
Summary: I have had my AOC for only about 2 weeks now and I love it. I have a home build gaming PC that works great with. The screen looks and works great for any desk and looks BEAST! The one complaint the I really started to notice when ever input on High resolution is the quality. Not the best quality..,. But I expect that at the cost of the product. Recommend to anyone looks for a cheap modern for entertainment or just working.
Summary: I like it but it has a few minor issues. First of all it leaves a ghost image if you play a video, of the size of the last video played. for about 4 seconds. Not a big problem but a little annoying. It should have come with 2 HDMI inputs, it didn't. I had to adapt a cable to another input to be able to plug in another hd device. Again annoying but not a deal killer. The image quality is very good! Menu is simple enough.
