It has 3 dead pixels which I'm not too worried about as I can hardly see them, but on a black screen it also has a line running up the entire monitor. It's not too visible but do you think it's enough to take it back? will it get worse? etc. (It looks a lot worse on the picture than it actually is. Oh and it's rotated my picture too... helpful)[Image]



Not sure what you mean about the rotated picture but if you can live with the dead pixels and line without it bothering you then another option is to ask for a partial refund from Amazon. I have done this with a number of items I have had, which have not been quite up to scratch but not really bad enough to return. I do use Amazon warehouse quite a bit so it can happen fairly often with warehouse products.

They will often offer 5-10%, sometimes more, of the items value if you ask. Some people don't like this and say you should either keep or return but I say that is utter bull. If you can live with the item a partial refund is easier for all concerned, no waiting in for couriers or having to sort your own, Amazon save money not having to arrange courier for you or pay you to set one up and don't have the hassle of sending it back to the manufacturer or putting it in the warehouse, plus better for the environment in that one less (or two for replacements) gas guzzling truck on the road ferrying things back n forth.

Worth noting that you don't actually lose anything by doing that either, manufacturer warranty still stands, even warranty with Amazon does, only thing is if you later returned for refund you would only get back the amount paid - the partial refund but that is only fair....

No I mean if i'm getting a 2k monitor I will stick to 27" or smaller as 32" will be too big and 4k too expensive.
It's pretty good. 75Hz native, not just in freesync mode, didn't have any dead pixels on mine. The ghosting thing in darker scenes is lessened if you raise the gamma slightly so the panel doesn't have to work so hard. Stuff like Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is extremely good, I can pick out movement a mile away where it was a bit hard to focus on my 27 inch 1080p TN.

Weirdly if you flip it down to 1080p mode you have to add 75Hz as a custom resolution, just to keep in mind.

Short version is, if you're willing to go through the annoying AOC menu system to customise it how you want it, you'll be rewarded with a fabby and bargainous screen.

1440 and G-Sync with an NVidia graphics card would be ideal, however not sure that would come in the budget.

1440 definitely is essential though from what I’ve read. Gaming in 4K is not always preferred, nice for general use though
Thanks OP, been watching this on Amazon for a while now, this has finally made me bite.
I did look at the 32" but it doesn't have a VESA mount and thought it will probably be too big.
In theory this should be sharper as it's the same resolution.

HDR 10 (1000 nits), HDR 600 (peak brightness 600nits) and HDR 400 (peak brightness 400 nits). Due to the close proximity of monitors to the user, most monitor manufacturers will now meet these new specs. Watch out for older uncalibrated monitor HDR 'compatible' monitors


No idea why the couldn't just adopt the same standard TVs use (HDR10 I believe). Would have allowed HDR monitors to appear far earlier and allow for cross compatibility so HDR capable consoles and set top boxes can display on a HDR monitor. Instead they seemingly are going for some kind of specialist PC only version of HDR that is sure to bump the costs of early displays up to astronomical levels and probably break any compatibility with the regular TV format

The lack of HDR displays for PC has meant that a fair number of games that have HDR on console have released on PC without it, making it debatable whether the PC version is the definitive version it usually is.

Oh well, not really of any concern to me as I'm more than happy with my pair of these non-HDR AOCs, and provided they don't break on me, will probably be using them for the next five years plus, by which time the whole HDR for PCs mess should have sorted itself out...

I'm sure it would look 'alright' with a PS4 but it really isn't the right way to use a monitor, especially one like this with a resolution that sits awkwardly between the two TV standards (higher than 1080P, lower than 4K). You are likely to lose some fine image quality and detail because the monitor will only receive 1080P from the PS4 (even if you got a Pro as PS4 Pro doesn't have an option to output 1440P natively) and then has to scale it up, which is a lossy process by its nature.

Looking at it from a TV distance this effect probably wouldn't be very noticeable but still would probably do better with a larger TV (maybe 40") for a console because aside from Xbox One X they just aren't equipped to deal with the 'in between' 1440P resolution....

Ghosting update. I'd say the king of ghosting tests is Deus Ex: Human Revolution because it runs comfortably at 75Hz on most setups, and the colour scheme is mostly luminous yellow on black and grey. And good lord it's quite blurry. I could probably mitigate this by bibbling around with the gamma/brightness at the expense of colour accuracy but if the Deus Ex games with their perpetual night are your favourite in the whole world this is not the monitor to get.

If you're just playing battlegrounds on this, it's rarely going to be an issue except inside some of the buildings at military base which are fairly daaaaark. Naturally I'll try messing with the overdrive settings further (it's on 'low' at present) and see if I can improve on that.

That being said, and I can't repeat this enough, for £200 this is still a superlative buy and I'm not doing the buyer's remorse dance in the least.

Sigh. Look, try to understand, yes it's nice to have nice toys and play a game at it's full potential, but for people to say rubbish like "5ms is no good for fps games" IN THIS THREAD (check the top comment) is nonsense.

I am perfectly aware of the balance between quality and frame rate, it's rather insulting that you seem to think I didn't. The difference between us is you seem to be in the camp that thinks high frame rates are worth sacrificing any semblance of visual quality for, while I like many people would prefer to have a more balanced approach.

I'm not saying you are wrong, you just have a different preference which is fine, but don't tell me I'm confused and if I only experienced the promised land I'd be a convert. Here's the news - I have experienced it and decided it wasn't worth the loss of quality or the expense of a 1080ti.

Yes it's a better experience but it's not ESSENTIAL which all the "5ms/60fps is no good for gaming" comments on almost any monitor deal posted would have you beleive.



There are plenty of games that support high refresh rates.

You are confusing 'max graphics, max FPS' with 'High FPS'.

CS:GO, DOOM, and others fit that bill.

But who said it was essential in this thread? You are changing the narrative from 'Ferrari v Ford' to 'Essential'.

I think none of those really capture the real nature of the difference.

If you play games that benefit from high FPS, such as shooters, racers, or any fast turning/moving game... Then you'll see a big difference.

If you play games like Civ, League, Dota, or other top down slower games, 60fps is perfectly ok.

But again, if you haven't tried 120/144hz and you are just assuming things, maybe you should give it a serious try, you may see the massive difference and understand what many people see, or you won't notice, as a lot of others don't see.

It was previously posted at £89.97 on their site last few weeks, that's probably when they all sold out. The site price is automatic and will just be to price the ex-demo and 'non pristine' stock that they can't sell online or to reserve but if you found one in store they'd let you have it.

Did a quick look, doesnt seem have broke the £100 barrier before.
For the price you cannot complain. Good connectivity, decent display and a reasonable size.

I am looking for a monitor at the moment, but I am put off this one by the inflexible stand and the fact that some reviewers mention that it causes the monitor to wobble! I suppose you could VESA-mount it with a gas-filled counterbalance, but of course you are then adding another £40+ to the price. For me this won't work as my table is glass!

I spent much time with you yesterday looking at all different sizes of monitor and different price brackets and I think that I will plump for the Dell u2417h, but it is over double the price of this one. I'm going to wait for a deal to come through, like any HotUkDealer worth their salt.

Hot, I have one and it's just over 3 years old (amazing that they still make the same model) - comes with 3 year guarantee, excellent image quality, great viewing angles, great connectivity. In built speakers are useless other than to make a very quiet sound (don't rely on them for much)

You're welcome. I think you would be better off sticking with your Dell too... Take the slightly smaller screen size in exchange for the IPS panel, at only 8ms response you would find it hard to spot any real difference between yours and this 1ms TN panel.

Then maybe I'm better off just sticking with my Dell P2414H...a bigger screen and a better gaming experience would be worth it but I'm not desperate for a bigger screen alone. Thanks for your comment.

A different 1080p 60hz monitor will work perfectly though.I just checked Amazon account and I sent this exact monitor back less than a month ago and bought the "Acer R271bmid 27-Inch Wide FHD ZeroFrame IPS LED Monitor - Black" for 1080p gaming and it's worked a treat. A little more expensive but worth the extra.

Thanks. I'm currently using Dell P2414H which is a great monitor for picture quality but was thinking it's not as fast as my old Samsung tn panel (which is only 1680x1050) aa it blurs quite a bit when planning on cod.

I can honestly say there's noticeable differences between 60hz and 120 however, I have not seen 144 or 250 but can't imagine the difference to be as great or beneficial


I've owned both 144hz and 240hz. Going from 60hz to 144hz is amazing. Basically the feeling of going from 60 to 120hz I guess. Eventually you get used to it and 60hz looks very choppy. Going to 240hz restores the amaze factor of going up, slightly. Eventually again you get used to it and 144hz looks a bit choppy.

Don't comment on something you have no knowledge of, you just look like an idiot.

I must say I used to believe the whole anything above 60Hz is pointless scenario but I just recently purchased a Predator X34a and a GTX1080 to go with it. That's a 100Hz (overclocked) ips 21:9 panel if you're not familiar. Anyway, having tried both 60Hz and 100Hz I can clearly see the difference. It is genuinely smoother although I will say it is pretty subtle.

The other thing to consider is the fact that gsync is disabled once the fps exceeds the monitor refresh so I'm more than happy with around 60 to 80fps in PUBG at 3440 x 1440 but playing Rocket League for example I have to cap my fps to stop tearing so I imagine older games like Counter Strike would be the same. It's a no brainer that higher refresh is better than lower. Whether I'd pay £££ for anything over 100/144 though, probably not. If rather have the extra width which has proved to be very useful when spotting someone to the side of the screen where I would normally not see on a 16:9.

I've got two of these, great monitors for the price. I find it very cheeky that manufacturers edit out the bezels in their product images though!
Agree with everything said, excellent monitor. I think AOC do the best budget IPS monitors on the market.

same here, had mine around 4yrs or so now. great value monitor, would recommend for this price.
A great monitor, I've had one nearly 4 years and it's been used daily and gives excellent results. this monitor gives a great sharp image. Comes with a 3 year warranty.

I'm amazed they still make this model, they usually change every 12 months meaning you can't buy something that has a good track record, so in this case you can see some genuine longer term use stats. I'd buy another.

Well it depends on if you want g sync, 144hz, ips, 1ms. The best IPS one I can think of on a budget of under £300 is this Hannspree 27" one for £180 laptopsdirect.co.uk/han…asp. If you want something with g sync your looking at around £500 for this tn panel 144hz dell laptopsdirect.co.uk/del…HAQ . I would go with the hannspree personally as I don't think its worth spending £300 more just for 144hz and the disadvantage of a TN panel. If your a hardcore gamer I guess by all means you can decide which is more suited to your needs.

Makes me wonder why Amazon accept these returns...


I saw on a forum where a guy had bought a big camera lens from Amazon warehouse and when he opened up the box it was just a piece of drain pipe with gaffer tape either end that had been filled with stones or similar to make up the weight. Amazing that people have the brass to do it considering it is fraud and that they believe that Amazon couldn't trace it back somehow like, maybe, via order number...

That said, they clearly do get away with it on occasion.
I have this monitor and it does have some serious issues, will not wake from sleep on display port and often will not come on at all (using any connection), you can see the screen trying to come on but it just stays blank/black, I have to pull the power lead out wait for the LED to go out then plug back in and it will then work. Shame really because it's not a bad monitor and reading the other posts from people with the same issue I'm not even going to waste my time with AOC support.

Amazon Warehouse is an absolute mess. I ordered a monitor a few months back which they said "only had small marks 2.5cm in length" on the stand. Turns out the stand is scratched to hell, it's missing all cables, CDs and even the screws to attach the stand to it...
