Solid reviews (4 out of 5 eggs) over at NewEgg.com
Not much of a deal. $129.99 right now at new egg + free shipping, so actually cheaper to buy it there - they have a good return policy, unlike Woot, and from reading reviews it seems that when they’re good they’re very good, but these monitors often have some manufacturing quality issues.
Apparently there is no VESA compliant mounting either (you’d have to buy an adapter), which is a deal killer for me as I have my monitors on arms
I’ve bought many of these for my work, and I have not yet had a dead pixel in any of them, that’s for at least 8 of these monitors. I buy only AOC, and we have about 150 AOC monitors at my work. While these monitors do not come with VESA compatibility, most of my users have desk space sufficient to handle two of these. We moved to AOC monitors after using Dell, Acer, HP and several other brands of monitors. The AOC’s seem to last the longest.
Would this be good for gaming?
I think it’s mostly subjective…
I have never seen a spec for pixel frequency, but the highest scan frequency is 75hz. The true gaming monitor’s I bought were 144hz with a 1ms response time, but response time isn’t something I think is really all that reliable.
But honestly, I never really noticed the difference between 75hz and 144hz in games I have played, so, is it really that much of a difference to be willing to pay twice as much for a “gaming” monitor? I probably wouldn’t do it again, but I’m sure some people might say it’s worth it.
P.S. – I owned an AOC monitor because I needed something…It ended up being my preferred monitor for many years until I built a gaming rig.
I got one of these off Woot back in October along with a Samsung 4k UHD for my MacBook Pro (which can only run one 4k monitor and the 2nd at 1080p). It sits to the right of my 4k monitor. While I use the 4k for the majority of my work I keep my email on this monitor. 1080p is still a big font so it doesn’t fit a lot of windows. But that is okay since my eyesight isn’t so good anymore so having my email in large font helps me read them. Again, for not a lot of money this has been working great. I was not aware of the New Egg but since I was getting two monitors both from woot in one purchase the shipping cost worked out for me. And the monitor has had zero problems. Comes on every time and no flickering or dead pixels. Very happy with my purchase.
Well, I know my sons watches a lot of game replays on it and is quite the tech-head (not like me, working in IT for 30+ years!) and has no issues with it. I’d say that casual gaming would be fine, but if you buy a video card for higher-end gaming, then this is probably not the monitor you are looking for. (I play Diablo III on mine!)
I bought this last time around, and like it.
Pros: it’s big and bright and works and it worked well for me to have 2 hdmi.
Cons: The resolution is low for a monitor of this size, so fonts and things are all large and not easily shrinkable. That would be a pro for some people who have aging eyes, or who want to place the monitor farther away, like on a wall mount.
The monitor does not have a VESA mount. If you want to use it on a desktop, that’s no problem, but if you want to mount it you have to buy an adapter. With the adapter, it’s a little awkward to insert the HDMI cables, but not too bad. My big problem was that I have 2 monitors mounted on a single arm, and with the adapter this monitor sits about 4 inches higher than other monitors. I had to rig up a second adapter to the first to lower the monitor. I got the VESA adapter at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01A3XDIQQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and to lower the mount I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0032HHXVM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
I have an alienware alpha with a graphics card in it. I’m just trying to get the best for my $. 1080 is fine for me. I just don’t want input lag
Does the AOC resemble the BOC?
I recently received this monitor and just opened it. The rectangular stand does not fit on the two pegs in the base…they don’t line up. Am I doing something wrong?
Hmmm… That seems pretty weird. Give it a few more tries and then get in touch with Customer Service if it’s still not working for you.
