Basic TN panel for those wondering.

Good monitor, upgraded from Korean 27inch 1440p IPS and was satisfied with the upgrade.

Pros - 10bit color , hdmi 2.0, free sync, 3 year warranty vs 1 you get from Korean brands.
Cons- Non vesa mount, OSD buttons could be layed out better.

Gaming on xbox one at 1080p looks and plays great with this monitor.This monitor is a better buy than other 4k monitors around the same price.

I wouldn't say basic but yes it's tn. Got a lot of great features though. Just wish it could do a little higher refresh rate, otherwise I'd jump on it now. I won't be home for 2 more months so hopefully something with freesync, >60hz, and vesa mounting comes up by then. Smilie

This is the crappiest freesync known to man.
How crappy you say? It only freesyncs from 50-76hz. Yes if you wanted butter smooth 24-30hz gaming (you know cuz its 4k) you are out of luck. If your fps drops below 50 (LOLZ 50fps constant 4k) its oudasync.

On the other hand the panel is worlds better than crappy sub $150 TN 1080p setups. I have another monitor with the same panel, i dont get off axis color inversion like a normal TN, and i dont get purple IPS glow, because its not IPS. I really wish they would make a good MVA for pcs....

I wasn't planning to game on it at 4k because my gpu can't push that. Would be for scaled down gaming and 4k movies. Would that work? Can I do 76hz at 1440 or something? I was unaware this could even run at more than 60fps.

i bought this monitor a week ago just to test out the 4k capabilities of my new laptop.
colors are good, but that's about it.

Somehow I can't get this monitor to work in a triple display setup. It always causes Windows and graphics drivers to glitch. It's slow to wake up too. Tried both the hdmi and DP ports.

I have no issues running triple display with a samsung 4k TV on the same hdmi port/cable.
There's something incompatible about this AOC monitor. Not sure if it's Intel's fault, or if it's the monitor.

Refresh rate is not great, definitely have to pass this up for that reason.

These work awesome for 1080p content vs the 1440p ones. It will just double scale it so it wont look blurry at all. If you can tweak your graphics settings, tv/movies will also be butter smooth if you can get it to sync at 72hz (3x24hz). You can also play games at 1080p too, again with no loss in quality from the scaling.

Not to cheer lead this any more, but here is some more specs:

Its not a TN 6 bit panel like in the past. Its an 8bit TN panel that then dithers to 10bit. As far as i know its impossible to get true t10bit color to the panel, even with a 10bit freindly amd with deep color enabled.

If you want to calibrate it using a cheap data color or something (or just get the range for uncalibrated).

Contrast around 50-53
Brightness around 40-43
Color around 30
and pull back the led backlight to around 30
If you have rgb controls you want them pull back alittle to 110-115

This will crush blacks a hair, but its next to impossible to get these panels to look good and be able to see blacks below 4-5 on the scale. You are much better off sacrificing alittle shadow detail in exchange for picture quality.

Thanks! So I could hypothetically game at 1080p, 72hz with freesync on?

It will frame limit at 76fps or what ever the limit of the unit. Remember it will freesync 50-76fps. So if the pc can put out 76fps, it will run at 76fps, if it cant put out even 50 it will go back to non vsync mode.

So, basically avoid this for Photography and video editing, if you want a true representation of real world colors.
