This screen seems like its too cheap, it has the same panel as the £100 more expensive Asus P278Q so where are the costs cut? Well the plastic of the case is one, the strange "brushed plastic" finish is a new one, and there is definitely some flex if you try to adjust the tilt with one hand not two, but it in no way detracts from the great picture and use of the screen.
Stand has lots of adjustments, but is cheap, and a bit wobbly. Next to my existing HP LP2475 screen with its HP metal chassis stand with plastic fittings (about 3Kg of stand!) it feels cheap and nasty, but once adjusted and left alone it works just fine.
I have my screen mounted on a Lavolta dual monitor arm now, which is much more solid.
Lots of inputs on this screen, you get DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI and an old VGA as well as sound and USB. The USB hub is a bit weird in case you wondered about the USB2/3 in the spec. Its a USB3 connection to PC (USB3 cable included), with two USB3 ports on side of screen (one with extra current for charging tables and phones) and two USB2 ports on the base of the screen from same hub. No idea why they are not all USB3 but there you go.
Inbuilt speaker(s?) are usable and helpful for new email pings or watching the odd youtube video but your not going to enjoy a symphony on them. You can either use the 3.5mm input, or if you connect with displayport (and I suspect but have not tired HDMI) sound is transferred over the single cable with the picture.
The only real problem with this screen is that it makes me want to buy a second one to replace me old 24" HP next to it...
What a great screen.
I'm a software engineer and have to work with large GUIs and code every day. It was becoming really tiresome when working with a large gui (say 1280x800) and having to scroll all over the place on my old 1920x1080 screen while developing. Now with the enhanced real estate of this screen that problem is gone.
Rotating from portrait to landscape is easy, as long as you think of your cable management before hand. Other reviews have noted the stand not being great - on my desk, it is no problem. It goes taller than my existing 1080P HP screens, and at max height could be a bit wobbly, but I'm never going to use it like that.
Setup was a bit of a nightmare, but this is down to this res being unusually high, coupled with my hardware. Most machines (I run a Dell Latitude e6530 on a eDock II when in the office) will only go up to 1920x1080. The EDID the screen puts out indicates 2560x1440 but you need to get the correct method of connection to support it. For me on the Dell dock, this was DisplayPort. Using DisplayPort fired up the screen immediately at the desired res. There are two on the eDock so may get another screen!
I tried HDMI, DVI and VGA, but - and this could just be my video card - not only was the EDID for the native res ignored, even forcing a resolution would not result in a good image. My advice is try DisplayPort first, then the others, and if none work, send it back. I unpacked very carefully in the knowledge that this was going to be difficult just in case it had to go back.
I really had high hopes for these monitors after reading so many reviews which left me with the feeling that I had made the right choice.
However when the first one arrived my first impressions of it being a good one soon evaporated. There are real differences between IPS Glow (IG) and Back light Bleed (BLB) and the first one suffered terribly from both but the BLB was the worse.
Watching the film Gravity was horrendous with the prevalent dark scenes being completely spoilt by the amount of bleed seen, in particular the right bottom and top section of the monitor. Playing games was also a terrible experience due to this bleed.
You can see an example here...
I contacted Amazon late Saturday night (the monitor was delivered Saturday) and they collected it on Monday and also delivered my second as a replacement.
In some ways the BLB was not as severe as the first but it can be seen here when playing games...
...obviously this too was not going to be kept. I did ring AOC on Monday and the person I spoke to informed me that what I saw was a limitation of the technology. I can understand that if it was just about IG but that is not the case here. In my opinion it was more to do with the construction of the panel and the bleeding of the back light through the edges of the screen.Read more ›
