I bought this monitor last year given the specs, but I'd probably avoid. The build quality is decent but the panel isn't great. Quite a bit of light bleed and very poor black levels.

Probably fine for general purpose work but I ended up going with the LG 32QK500 which was phenomenally better quality.

The LG's £210 lowest price back in December '19 would have been a trigger to buy, but with it now floating at >£240 it's a question of patience till it next drops by 10 to 15%

I'm generally of the opinion you should buy the very best you can afford, but the rate at which tech is made redundant, you have to stop and weigh things up these days, now that debt is gradually becoming more expensive, I suspect better deals are on the horizon once China gets back up to full speed.

Looking at some of the reviews on Amazon, it's not all that clear which model they're referring to, but there are some comments about questionable manufacturing quality control.

Good monitor that you suggest but just to point out it is 75Hz and 8ms response times.
For gaming, might not be totally ideal but for for everything else, should be fine.
i have the version but not this model but the speakers are absolutley awful, the rest is good but no remote either, i like this range though but i had to but a £30 sound bar thing
No freesync? Yikes
Dispatch says one or two months

Is this a better monitor? …Is this a better monitor? https://www.amazon.co.uk/AOC-Q3279VWFD8-32-Monitor-LED/dp/B07CG41Y8Z


Direct comparison between the two --> here

Seems the AOC is an ADS panel. "...ADS (Advanced Plane-to-Line Switching) is different from IPS because it uses a longitudinal electric field and a transverse electric field for parallel liquid crystal movement..."

More detailed info on panel types --> here

Some convo on the what's what with ADS --> here
"...In 2012 some PLS based screens started to be marketed using the "AD-PLS" name. It is unclear what is supposed to have changed, if anything, with these recent panel variants. We suspect this is just a marketing name designed to keep up with LG.Display's change to the "Advanced High-Performance IPS (AH-IPS)" name from the same time. Performance characteristics remain as described in the PLS section above...."


Displayspecs state that the AOC offers less dynamic contrast, but along general lines similar stats with less input lag. Claims it's Freesync compatible.
It isn't VESA compatible so you're stuck with their tilt only stand.

Agree - I bought this as a TV for our bedroom. I was looking for a VESA mountable IPS monitor with speakers and this ticked the boxes. The speakers are very tinny so I ended up buying a small £30 soundbar to mount below it.

In terms of a remote - as monitors generally never have them - I use an Android Firestick remote to interface with the soundbar but couldn't do anything with the monitor as there was no RF receiver.

I bought an microcontroller with the intention of adding an RF receiver and taking the power signal from the remote and controlling the power circuit of the monitor (nice little project).

I tried to take this monitor apart, but I couldn't get into the PCB housing without breaking something. In short - do not take this apart, it was a real pain the get the bezels back on again (2-sided foam adhesive strips required).

I resorted to a smart plug that can be remotely powered. When turned on at the plug, the monitor turns on (rather than starting in standby mode) so proved to be an easy workaround.

I bought this as a productivity monitor for work. I wouldn't advise it for competitive gaming. If I do play anything on it, it's usually a platformer or strategy game where the colour reproduction is appreciated more than the response time.

To be honest, even for productivity I would probably get something else. I'm finding that I would have preferred 4k at this size, or 1440p at 27". This is a little to large when sat an arm's length away.

I think I paid approximately £180 for the LG - A 10% off voucher at eBay coupled with a good price. I wouldn't pay any more than £200 for a monitor with these specs.

At £180, eh, you can't go wrong!
The LG is £229 at AO.com
