Been watching this since around November. Cheapest pre-order price by far. Reviews seem very promising. I imagine price will rise when it's released.

Immersion to the max: With its extra-small curvature radius of 2000 mm, the AOC AGON AG352UCG puts gamers right into the centre of the action.

A 100 Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology guarantee super-smooth and responsive gameplay and graphics by minimising screen tearing, display stuttering and input lag. The monitor’s UltraWide QHD resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels brings game worlds to life with sharp and detailed images on the large 35″ (88.9 cm) screen.

Clever display settings give players additional advantages, including AOC Shadow Control, which lightens overly dark areas of the image and darkens bright parts without affecting the rest of the screen. Moreover, convenient features such as a retractable headset holder and a handle make the AG352UCG a perfect choice for esports enthusiasts, who can even customise the monitor’s look thanks to adjustable coloured LED lights (red, green, blue) on the AG352UCG’s back and lower bezel.

The display’s ergonomic stand called AOC Ergo Base offers height, tilt and swivel adjustment options, which empower gamers to find a comfortable posture and prevent back pain. In order to also protect players’ eyes and prevent eyestrain, the AOC Flicker-Free technology regulates the monitor’s brightness with a direct current (DC) backlight system, which reduces flicker. In addition, the optional AOC Low Blue

Light mode reduces potentially harmful short wavelength blue light. - See more at: aoc-europe.com/en/…ucg

Voted hot simply for not being called a predator-death-extreme-brexit-reaper-racist
As far as I can tell it's the only piece of kit aimed at "gamers" that doesn't have such a name
I preordered this a few days ago, then decided to cancel reading more recent reviews; and opinions from buyer's in countries in which it's already out. Opinions mainly focusing on cheap build quality, cheap panel technology, and G-SYNC stutter (which is also on the omen X-35). I was hoping this to be a great monitor but it's not the killer we all thought.

Example of GSYNC issue

Voted hot anyway as this is indeed the cheapest price around by some margin. (plus Amazon's stellar return policy)

A valid point. For me the last gen of 3440x1440 were a bit hit and miss according to reviews and it made folking out £1000 kind of unrealistic, hopefully AOC have had the extra time to learn from the QC issues of some other manufacturers.

Yeah, saw that video the other day. Some other people make light of it and couldn't recreate that even in the exact scene. I'll give it a month without staring too close and if nothings standing out then more than happy to keep it.

Exactly. If you can afford to try out what is still a very niche market go ahead. You can always return it. Although I'd just have a horrible feeling after a few months, I'd grow used to the display and then start noticing it. With monitor issues it's one of those things which once you see you can't unsee.

£500+ and no IPS? Helll no

​It's 4k 100hz gsync meant for gamers. At that price it's completely unrealistic to expect IPS
Shame this doesn't hit the mark, this is the spec of monitor I want
aoc, just no
Can get from another IT company at £680 inc VAT and UK Del
Was going to post this deal myself. Think it's unfairly cold when you consider what the competition is! Much cheaper than either a PG348Q or Acer X34, both of which use an overclocked 60Hz panel rather than the native 100Hz panel this one has.

I'd take a VA panel over TN any day, and VA can trade blows with the likes of IPS which comes with its own 'characteristics' (glow, excessive bleed).

Official word from nVidia and AOC is that the flickering issue when GSYNC is enabled is a driver issue and will be addressed.

Heat added.

How is it so far? any of the known G-Sync problems stood out?

How is it so far? any of the known G-Sync problems stood out?


I'm actually really chuffed with it. Colours are fantastic (I calibrated using the same settings from the detailed pcmonitors.info review).

The colour uniformity isn't perfect and very dark colours take on a bluish tinge towards the bottom of the screen depending on the viewing angle (I think this is called black crush).

Back light bleed is very minimal.

Monitor is set to 100Hz from display adapter properties rather than in the monitor menu.

Haven't noticed any flicker yet when G-Sync is enabled, although I've only tested on a handful of games.

I wasn't sure if G-Sync was actually working at first because I thought the whole idea was that it eliminated tearing but it turns out that G-Sync only works when FPS < refresh rate, so when I was running games at over 100 fps I saw tearing. I've mostly addressed this by capping my FPS but it also works by enabling (fast) v-sync in the nvidia display settings - this way the vsync setting takes care of situations when FPS exceeds the refresh rate and G-Sync takes care of things when FPS < refresh rate.

Games are very fluid at 100Hz and look *stunning* running at 3440*1440. It does push your GPU pretty hard though (although a fair bit less than 4K does) and so I wouldn't suggest trying with anything less than a GTX 1070.

Cosmetically I think it's fantastic looking monitor. I'm actually nowhere near as offended by the gloss bezel as I thought I would be. I haven't decided if I like the LED lights at the bottom yet - 3 colours to choose from and each has 3 intensity settings but it can be easily switched off if preferred (they do reflect in the gloss bezel which can be distracting).

The stand is superb - very solid, easily adjustable and looks great. Had to put this together but it took ~ 10 mins.

Menu system works well (once I'd got the hang of it).

The curve is more pronounced than I was expecting - I use a Dell U315W at work which has a very slight curve. This is a plus in my view.

Overall for the money I think it's a great buy compared to the competition.

Thanks for the indepth review! sounds like a good monitor overall, I really want to go Ultrawide,

Its just deciding if I get one of those, and replace my 165hz 1440p acer predator.. so its basically ultrawide vs the extra refresh rate on the predator hmm,

I also have a GTX 1080

I've got a x34a on the way, going from a crossover 2560x1440p, I don't really game much but looking to see if ultrawide get's me into it a bit more. I also have a GTX1080 so interested to see how it goes. Ultimately from all I've read and watched it appears ultrawide is as close to immersion as you can get other than VR. And I'm really looking forward to all the extra screen space. Bit of a lottery the x34s but hopefully I'll get lucky. Having always had 60hz since the CRT days I'm looking forward to that feature most.
Well the x34a has beaten expectations. No visible backlight bleed at all, no dead / stuck pixels, no humming, no issues scrolling up and down webpages (some reported stuff) and none of the other QC related issues I've been reading all about. Playing Arma 3 flying a jet certainly feels immersive. G-Sync is fairly nifty too. Even if your frame rate drops it's kind of acceptable because there's no choppiness. OSD is a joke but now it's calibrated hopefully shouldn't be in there too often. Wanted to use the blue light filter but it's fairly un-intuitive activating it etc so I'll stick with f.lux.

Glad to hear you're liking your ultrawide!

I've just bought my self one of these AOG monitors, coming tomorrow can't wait

Returning my Acer Predator 144hz 1440p monitor as unfortunately it suffers from a bad vertical faint grey line problem across the monitor and I just can't ignore it, so although dropping down to 100hz I can't wait to try ultrawide

Hoping by the end of the year there will be 144hz ultrawide monitors to upgrade too

Let me know how your eyes get on. Think mine are getting used to the extra peripheral vision it uses up. Yesterday I kept looking away and when I did my head kind of pulsed for a second, like a headache but for a second or two. Then again it is a tad further forward than my last screen because of the ridiculous stand. Definitely worth ultrawide just for the extra productivity. Tried GTA5 and just having a new screen and new look to everything makes me want to go back and play games again. Definitely fun!

Got my new AOC Ultrawide, loving it! first one arrived with a stuck pixel, but Amazon sent a next day replacement & touchwood its perfect so far, colours are great and gaming is amazing! very immersive, the extra screen space is great for working on too and browsing

My eyes seem to have adjusted now. 21:9 definitely good for getting things done. Recommend GridMove for even more productivity. Going to dive into some proper gaming later!
