    Bang on. Apart from that price. North of £500 for a monitor is tough to stomach, but this is the first monitor I've seen a CRT that tickles me. Higher static-contrast ratios should be good for photos. Decent refresh, good resolution for the size. I'd also take this in a 1080 30" form (but 1080 on a 35" 21:9 is too fuzzy).

    Nice specs but I'm not mad keen on the design.

    Not bad. Approx £200 cheaper than the Acer & Asus equivalents. Tempted...

    Wish they'd go with the more open and futureproof FreeSync. Let's not allow Nvidia to make money from this technology and allow the open source free equivalent that has the potential to work with any system.

    Re: AOC AGON AG352UCG 35-inch curved G-Sync monitor launched

    Even though I favour freesync for its open world use. I can't see it all being Nvidia on this one.

    A quick check on equivalent amd/nvidia monitors you see its as much as £200 difference for Gsync to be implemented.

    I reckon Monitor manufacturers cashing in on this a lot more than nvidia.

    I mean the hardware that goes in surely costs no more than a few quid yet in some cases £200 different on price of essentially same monitor.

    Looks to me like abuse by monitor manufacturers of Nvidia market position.

    Cat see nvidia being happy that their monitors are priced much higher?

    A victim of there own success in reckon.

    And I am an Amd preferred user

    VA is better than IPS, better colours and contrast, much better blacks.

    I'm surprised manufacturers haven't added an OSD menu item to switch between FreeSync and G-Sync already. Producing one unit has to be cheaper to make.

    So the question is - is this a monitor to get, or should everybody wait until HDR10 is included, the panels are going to be even more expensive with 10-bits.

    I guess that's a matter of preference, I do prefer IPS, and the £200 more expenive Acer and Asus are IPS so not a direct comparison but near enough.

    What? No it's not a matter of preference VA=IPS-backlight bleed problems+waaaay better contrast ratio; there's no taste involved here only raw scientific superiority. I've bought 5 cheap aoc monitors with VA panels last year and none of them had any backlight bleeding problems, now my personal LG TV had to be returned 4 times before I got one with "Acceptable" backlight bleeding, and what I see on the internet is you never get 100% no backlight bleed on IPS screens you can only have it so low that it doesn't bothers you, but if you turn off the lights and pay close attention you can still see it.
    Also my LG TV with IPS screen seems to get better or worse backlight bleed from time-to-time, yet generally it doesn't bothers me. Only downside I can see is that if you simply touch a VA panel you get localized color shifting while IPS panels usually don't do this even if you press it hard with your fingers.

    Also the more expensive AOC monitor I use with my main rig has no problems whatsoever with backlight bleeding+stunning contrast ratios and equal color representation to my high-end 2.5year old LG TV

    Of course it's a matter of preference, each panel type has it's own pro's and cons. If VA was by far the best panel all the high-end monitors would use it.

    Re: AOC AGON AG352UCG 35-inch curved G-Sync monitor launched

    If that's true then why diamonds are so expensive given they're NOT a rare gem? This my friend is called monopoly, and right now LG rules the display market, IPS is their technology so nothing strange that they're not letting samsung rule, also VA is newer panel technology, when IPS came out there was marketing "look at the colors" but samsung is not doing its job in advertising VA panels the rest is simply how market works.

    One day... Eventually... AMD (Freesync) will actually have a graphics card capable of driving this monitor at a decent frame rate, until then I'm happy to see G-Sync on these bigger screens.

    I personally would prefer an IPS panel, but I will be very interested to read reviews once it's out. Unfortunately it's likely to come out just too late for me this time & monitors have an annoying habit of teething issues for a while too, which are eventually sorted.

    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    You mean like any Fury card or overclocked Hawaii based card.
