Summary: Works great. I use it for old school Unix development. It's been great for that. Easy to configure and get the brightness, color, ect to a comfortable place. It's not too small and not too big. I have it mounted on a flexmount arm on a mobile desk. Some reviews complained about the bezel being cheap. I don't see any issues with it after six or so months. Some of the other concerns were HDMI not handling the resolution.
MultiPlay a Farce and Impractical At That, But Monitor Still Well Worth Purchase

Summary: Not as useful as I'd thought -- for example, "MultiPlay" isn't an actual setting or toggle you can switch to: it's just AOC's marketing department making a big deal out of the fact that three programs could be windowed side-by-side for increased productivity (though in practice even two windows barely work out successfully, depending on just what you're trying to do, exactly) -- but a beautiful display all the same, and the price is even more attractive.
Summary: Pros: A large and rather attractive monitor that does well for everyday needs (browsing, etc). Has plethora of features, such as Picture-in-picture, and definitely increases what you are able to see in video games which was the #1 reason for purchasing this monitor outside of artistic endeavors. Scales very well with the standard 1920x1080 resolution, meaning that most games/videos will run just fine on this monitor.
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.
