Great price and i think 1440 on a 32" is perfect, i prefer to scale to 125% on a 27" 1440.

As much as i would prefer to buy anywhere but Amazon, they do have a ridiculously lax return policy so can try it out for a good month, going to stick with my Amazon order.

Oh so close to my bite point. 32" is probably a bit big for me.

199 from amazon (pre-order)
£199 on Amazon: amazon.co.uk/AOC…HPQ thread about it here: hotukdeals.com/dea…752


Looks a good monitor, I have it pre-ordered with Amazon. Like the idea of up to 75HZ and Freesync on a screen of this price and good size for the resolution.

Should be a no brainer for anyone after a new monitor.

Edit: Just noticed it was in stock at Overclockers. Personally happy to wait till Amazon get it in as I'm in no hurry for it, but when anyone ordering from Overclockers gets theirs please post back with your thoughts on it. As I said on paper it's about as good as you could possibly hope for, for this money but nothing like hearing some first hand accounts....

Great price! Slightly gutted as I got the Viewsonic deal a few months back. Similar specs, but IPS and no Freesync and tops out at 60Hz, but just checked and this one has no VESA mount so a no go for me anyway, but if it doesn't matter to you then it's a great deal!
Looks like you can attach a VESA mount to this monitor! Big selling point if that’s a show stopper for you! Just ordered 2 from amazon with the mounts! Excellent find in my opinion

It's a clamp mount adapter. Not very elegant but will get it off the desk. If on a movable arm at least you will have a handle! Lol

But TBH there is never an elegant solution if the cables come straight out the back.

For most people a 32" will need to be set back far enough that the base shouldn't be an issue.
No delivery date yet from Amazon, so I've cancelled that order and gone with Overclockers
Worth mentioning the only difference between Amazon and the Overclockers deal is that it's free delivery with Amazon - otherwise they are both at £199
Used PayPal to buy from OC, don't think Amazon will get stock this year
Great gaming monitor.
A couple of questions if you don't mind.

What would this be like for photo editing?

If I plugged in a blu ray player would films look good?

Do DPD (guessing that's the carrier) deliver on a Sunday?
Yes, that’s what they’re saying
Just to add some information. I own what I assume is an older cousin of this monitor, the Q3277PQU. It's the best monitor I've ever owned by a distance. Superb panel uniformity, contrast and colour richness with no backlight bleed. The only weakness is pixel response time, which is a bit of an issue for first person shooters, and possibly input lag. I do not think these are worse than the ASUS PB278Q IPS monitor that I also tried out - which wasn't as big, didn't have as nice blacks and suffered from IPS bleed. I just bought this one since I'd quite like Freesync and the extra Hz. Bargain price really.
Good value. Already cancelled my Amazon order and went for a 32" 4k IPS Electriq. Not the best build quality but got a discount so for sub £225 can't complain.
Been looking for a new monitor for a while as my LG 34" ultrawide is doing my head in due to companies still not bothering with 21:9 support, was thinking about getting a 32" 4K monitor but they're just so expensive but this seems like a great price for a 32" let alone a 32" 1440p 75hz so it's worth a punt
Ordered....thanks OP
Seems like a decent budget monitor, Scan also have it available for pre-order @ £199.99 (due 20th Dec).
Would I better off going for this or the ASUS 28 4K ?

I'd say this. To me this is the ideal resolution/screen size combination and I have some experience as I have owned a 28" 4K monitor (Viewsonic VX2880ML) and I found the resolution WAY too high for the screen size and had to have the scaling up to 175% and actually found it most comfortable on 200% at which point I have the same screen real estate as a 1080P screen and thus defeated the purpose of a 4K screen!

Admittedly I don't have the greatest eye sight, some would do better with it but it definitely wasn't for me. Plus whilst I have a decent PC, 4K is right on the edge of what it can drive at acceptable frame rates and as games get fancier it will only get worse and with the horrible price gouging on GPUs lately it isn't like I can afford to buy anything better. 1440P should give my R9 Fury much more breathing room....

Also have the Q3277PQU, paid around £320 for it making this deal of £200 a bargain.

My 24" Dell is 1920 x 1200.

The PPI resolution is the same.

Really good insight there Pauly,

I agree, with a 28 " 4K Cramming all that in.

Having been fortunate to own the Samsung QLED HDR, & Now the LG UD69P, there quite not on it.

For just over two this AOC IS a cracking little buy.

About the resolution ,
How could one Scale it down? On our 4K's please.

Thanks, if you could reply back

If you are on Windows 10 (similar for other versions but might be called different things) just right click desktop and choose "display settings" you will then get a window with a icon representing your monitor and below that a slider with the text "change the size of text, apps and other items" just pull it left to reduce scaling (things look smaller) and right to increase scaling (and make things look bigger).

I think Windows defaults to some scaling on high DPI displays (i.e. 4K) but IME it isn't enough unless you have a massive display....
Is 5ms vs 1ms a big difference when playing games or not.

Not really, 5ms if fine and lower grey-to-grey response times are no guarantee against ghosting.
Monitors also have input lag around 10-20ms which isn't listed in the specifications.
Got email from Amazon saying monitor is expected to be delivered between 13th and 15th December. Looks like stock is incoming across the websites now
I didn’t get one. I’ll be happy if it’s next week.
Argh it's so close to ticking all my boxes. The freesync range is a bit narrow at 48-75 hz. Wish it started at 30.

Edit: appears to default to 30-75 hz when enabling freesync in CRU. Need to get the tape measure out and see if my desk is big enough...!

Anyone got the actual dimensions?
How long is the warranty on this at Amazon? i see Overclockers is 3 years but Amazon doesn't say.

Waiting for a 27" 1440p 144 Hz screen for a reasonable sum.

There's plenty of monitors with input lag of under 10ms and some with none.
Does this look good. The monitors I owned have worst picture quality then my TV, I like good picture quality, accurate
If anyone has this monitor, could you please comment on the text clarity e.g. black text on white background.
I do a lot of reading and programming so would like something that is easy on the eyes.

Any help will be appreciated.
A pretty comprehensive review published yesterday.
