You need to add delivery charge.

Price seems to have dropped in all online shops, but amazon is so far the cheapest.
This is a really good price. Decently reviewed monitor as well. Little big too big for my desk.

I paid 235 for a monitor of this size and resolution about 6-8 months ago now as that was the cheapest at the time, it was a viewsonic which is a brand I have heard of somewhat, I am a little unfamiliar with AOC though and was curious what people think of the brand generally speaking, if anyone has any of their products?

Just to generally answer your question, Viewsonic is a premium brand with a good pedigree and engineering expertise behind them, AOC are generally a budget option. Not to say you won't get the odd amazing budget monitor and iffy high end one, but that's how I see it. I have a Viewsonic high refresh TN panel now and I find not much difference to a premium IPS panel (though a little). So the brand and the engineering and the general quality level do really make a difference. There's even a PC Perspective Podcast where an Nvidia person says don't worry too much about the panel tech, just get a quality monitor from the likes of Viewsonic (he did mention them). Sorry to sound like a fanboy lol.

thanks for the opinion, was what I was looking for ^_^
Would someone recommend window management software that allows you to split the screen into multiple virtual windows meaning you can treat each virtual window as if it’s a separate screen?

One advantage of this is that you can run software in full screen mode and it will only fill the virtual window and not the whole screen. Handy for watching videos when multi-tasking.
It seems good value but when I saw it in action it had quite noticeable ghosting which I found very distracting.
Nice monitor for the price, heat!

As above - no VESA mount is criminal. What a shame. Hopefully other similar resolution and size panels come down in price soon.

I hope I haven't dreamt this but I'm sure I read AOC monitors are made by TPVision, the company that bought out Philips' TV business? I have a Philips Ambilight made by TPVision and can't fault it for the money paid...
Too big for a monitor of this resolution imo.
Goddammit. So tempted even though I have a Nvidia and this is freesync. This looks so nice

Where did you bring it to?
Is it TN, VA or IPS panel? Good colours or great blacks? Wow what a size? It must be humongous.

That would be what happens when you mix TN panel technology with a screen this size. 27 inch is the max I'd go for TN
I got this one for 199 few weeks ago from Amazon. Great monitor for the price. No VESA mount,colour shift at edges if you sit too close to it and ghosting if the content of the screen is too dark(most noticeable in games like Deus Ex). Ghosting is partially solved by lowering the refresh rate from 75 to 60hz. Freesync works in the range of 48-75. So yeah,not perfect but still a great monitor for the price.

Nearly bought this last night at £199.99 after reading a really positive review in the latest Computer Shopper mag (via Readly). At £179.99 this is now looking like a no-brainer for me. I'll only use it for general stuff and have no interest in gaming so looks great for my needs.

Hence why Midlands was mentioned, you can collect it.
has been at this price for a couple of weeks i think. my aoc (27", FHD, 2xHDMI, no VESA - this one) just died on my out of the blue, right after 2 years so i want to stay away from them. paid an amazing price back then (£136 new @ amazon) but can't seem to find anything as decent for a price close to that one.

considered this, but as others have mentioned it doesn't have VESA and suffers from quite a few issues. any recommendations?

Try a program called OnTopReplica, it allows you to mimic a window and have that float PIP style over all windows. I use it for Netflix or Kodi on my windows laptop, works well for me.

You're right, AOC are part of TPV who also bought the TV and monitor business from Phillips.

I've had a couple of AOC monitors and used to think of them as budget but I've been very pleased with my IPS AOC monitors which in my opinion are far superior to the LG and Samsung monitors I've had before. I'd get another.

Also come with 3 year guarantee

I've had 2 AOC monitors since 2013 and both have been excellent performers so far, image quality is excellent (I have a 23" IPS and 27" IPS monitor) - build quality is solid, connectivity on mine are good. Inbuilt speakers are utter trash but that's no problem for me. I'd certainly rate them as good as most other mid range monitors.

3 year guarantee on AOC monitors.... it might be the separate power supply that your monitor has (I think) that has died. I'd contact AOC for hopefully a free repair.

I bought two of these monitors at Christmas and returned them. I found the quality extremely poor. Granted I've been spoilt by my U3014's etc, but even so. I'm very easy going with most monitors, but the ghosting on these was insane. poor quality colour as well. Maybe I just got two duds but I was very very unimpressed.
CampGareth2 h, 24 m ago

This is VA, not TN.


Ahh so it is! VA colour shift shouldn't be too bad
I got one of these a while back at £149ish from amazon warehouse- missing a couple of cables but easily replaced.

The real estate space is what sold it for me - for applications like Premiere Pro I love being able to see all my menus etc. I'm very happy with the monitor for the price. Sure it's a bit cheap feeling and the colours aren't the best (I have other options for colour grading). But there's a pretty extensive menu for setting your own custom settings, which helps a bit, but let's be honest we're buying this for the price. For sub £200 this is a good deal, heat.
I got one of these at launch, it's a great monitor for the price. The DPI is perfect for 31.5 inch and Windows scales perfectly to it at 100%.

Once calibrated the colours are good, as are the viewing angles. There is a little motion blur but not enough to bother me personally.

The addition of 75Hz Freesync makes it a decent gaming monitor.

Better 30+ inch monitors exist but they are all much more expensive.
Is it 60 or 140hz? (Sorry to be *that*guy)
