Good price, considered this before going for the insanely cheap AOC @ £160. Best off doing research before buying one though, lots of complaints regarding backlight bleed and general screen uniformity issues - poor blacks also being one of them.

What AOC was that?

What AOC was that?


Q3279VWF - with an ebay 30% off promotion last December it brought the monitor down to £160. Currently £197 @ Amazon.
Using this right now. Got it for £230, great purchase.
Also worth mentioning this has the VESA mount points, unlike the AOC
Anyone use this for gaming? Seems too big to be sat up against it haaaa
Viewsonic VX3211-2K-MHD also around this price. Don't know the specs of this one but I have the Viewsonic and I have no complaints. VESA mount also and IPS so maybe not best for games.

Genuinely tempted for this. Just need to swing it by the good wife somehow. She works from home and this might be what it takes to convince her to use a desktop more than laptop...(we have 24/20 inch dual at the moment but laptop only has one output...

takes a day or two to get used to because of the size - but after it's perfect!

I've put my pitch in to her. Here's hoping!

In fairness, my Benq 24" is 7 years old and showing its age (editing photos isn't amazing), and this would be a decent work/lightroom solution. I like documents vertically side by side and this is sufficiently large enough to warrant that.
In fact, I did a brave. Ordered, and will send back if it's a negatory from the good wife!

I’m also using a 7 year old BenQ 24” for photo editing. It was probably done about 2 years ago, but I keep putting off replacing it because I’m a cheapskate.

Been looking at the LG 27” UD88-W at around £500 in the hope that it’ll last me another 7 years, but again putting it off because I’m cheap.

Off to research this...

Seconding this! Can any one advise?

I've personally had my eye on the Acer Predator XB271HU for a long time but the price is just too much considering the lack of QC!

Be sure to let us know how it’s looking.

A LOT of the reviews - even the good ones - mention light bleed in the corners (particularly with blacks) which is the only concern for me with editing photos for clients. The photos on one of the negative reviews would be unacceptable for me. Hoping he just got a duff one!

I edit only for me, and will use a second screen for toolbars etc, so shouldn't be too much of a deal-breaker. It'll be 80% office and 20% LR processing. The upgrade from the Benq will likely be significant to the point I can't complain.

My two work 24" Dell panels are the benchmark for me - these two are rather good (P2417H), but are not cheap in comparison.

If I was editing for clients and making a living, I wouldn't be looking here at all personally, and would double/triple the budget to look for something that can pay for itself with time (like a good lens I suppose!).

It’s only weddings and the occasional kids portrait shoot that I’m doing - nothing really too high end or commercial so I’m not overly concerned about the monitor being ultra boss. As evidenced by the fact I’m using a 7 year old monitor currently! (I was being dim earlier - it’s actually a Hanns-G rather than BenQ!)

I wouldn’t be too concerned about a bit of light bleed around the edges - however if it was like that guy’s pic (in the Amazon reviews) when editing B&W it would probably get on my t ts pretty quickly.

Suppose it’s Amazon so it can always be returned!
FYI the AOC Q3279VWF is a great monitor for the price if you wanted the alternative. Had mine for 2 weeks now and love it!

I’ve kind of narrowed my search down to IPS panels.

Looking at this and the Acer H277HU - which is 27” but tends to get great reviews almost everywhere.

This gets decent reviews, however the light bleed gets a lot of mentions. But it’s bigger so, y’know, that’s better right?!

That’s why I’m considering it!

If the two were the same other than size I’d probably just go for this one. As it is I’m coming down on the side of the 27” as it seems the better of the two. I also don’t realistically need to be sat 3 feet from a 32” screen! But it is bigger, so... 🤪

I could also put the £30 saving towards the Crucial MX500...

So it's here and it's impressive in fairness. Can't complain at all.

Backlight bleed is strongest in lower-right on mine, but only really visible in a pitch black room. In normal conditions, I'm struggling to notice any at all using this page:

lightbleedtest.com/


This is uncalibrated so far. I will tinker later, but technically still at work... Colour reproduction out of the box is a lot better than the outgoing EW2430, but then I shouldn't really be too surprised by that!

I can, but it's a bit tricky, due to a window directly behind and a dark desk. Leave that one with me

I wish I had something even remotely better than a Lenovo P2 to play with! My desk is a 2000mm x 900mm breakfast bar. One image has a 30cm standard ruler for comparison.

Given it has freed up a lot of space now, I need to get organised and tidy :P Excuse the fringe mess!

Then it dawned on me that someone might actually mean "photo of the backlight bleed". So yeah, sorry about that

It's not terrible - have seen more expensive panels look much, much worse than this and I echo other amazon reviews - you can only really notice this in bleed tests. This photo makes it look a bit worse than reality.

I'll give this a try for this price.

Any glaring issues and Amazon can take it right back.
I think it it's currently the best value >30" with a decent enough feature set and PPI isn't terrible at 93 ppi, which is better than my 24" Dell panels at 1080p.

A few days in, and I am used to the size of the panel already. Having two windows for browsing etc is taking more getting used to, but LR is a pleasure to work in; may not even bother with a second panel for library/toolbars etc.

Agreed, very happy with mine.

No input lag in games that I've noticed, great colours and viewing angles and as you said it's sharp enough at this size to not notice the pixels.

No complaints really, some minor bleed in the corners if I look for it, also no dead pixels.

Well one thing I noticed is the Amazon specs said 75Hz which is incorrect but you can force 75hz with the nvidia control panel and it's fine, so it was a half truth.

I've not checked mine to see refresh, but I will see about forcing it. I'm still rocking an i5 2500/GTX670 (former since 2011, latter since 2013), so I am long, long overdue an upgrade at some point...But I just can't see what will significantly boost an i5 2500 for sensible money, given the lack of gaming.

Mrs has been using the screen for the first time today at home and is very impressed with it. Only downside was a lack of USB hub built in; but that said, having an extension command strip-stuck to the back of the desk and a small hub with KB/Mouse/card reader built in, means she can unplug one cable from the main PC and put right into her laptop with HDMI and use it like normal.

Man-maths won this one - thanks OP!

Elsewhere says 75Hz only at lower than native resolution...? Hmm, doesn't affect me much (not sure I've got enough grunt to run anything at 75Hz 1440p), but will be interesting to see what is reality.

Also - this is still available; un-expired it.

The advertised refreshrate should be what's available at the native resolution so it's a little missleading, but as I said you can force it to work at 75hz/1440p so it's no big deal.

Using i7 4870k/GTX1080 so the higher refresh is desirable even if it is only a small step above default.

Is it 100% 75Hz if you frame rate test etc? Rather than misleading the user? I'll find out in an hour anyway but discussion banter etc.

Yep, it's definitely 75hz, of you're familiar with the custom resolution settings in the control panel it's easy enough to get working. I did try 85hz but was out range, had to try though.

I forgot to try the Nvidia panel, as Windows 10 wouldn't do it - lulled you into a false sense of setting it to 75Hz and pinged straight back. Will have a look again when I get a chance
