Excellent monitor for a great price.
I personally prefer the VA panel vs the IPS on the Acer X34 or the Asus equivalent. Excellent contrast and no backlight bleed.
Overall, we found this a worthy companion to our Nvidia GTX 1070 and one with the flexibility to stretch considerably more powerful GPUs as well. The marriage of UltraWide screen, 3440 x 1440 resolution, 100Hz refresh rate and G-SYNC is one which looks nice on paper and in this case worked nicely in practice as well. It’s also difficult to ignore the (at this time projected) retail price of this model, too, which whilst not cheap is certainly more affordable than the competing UltraWide G-SYNC models using overclocked 60Hz IPS panels. Whether the relatively high-contrast VA panel free from ‘IPS glow’ makes for a better experience than the more consistent colours and tighter pixel responsiveness of the IPS alternatives is a matter for debate. But in our view there is a lot to like about the AOC and it certainly warrants careful consideration for Nvidia gamers.
