    Re: AOC Q2778VQE monitor

    Yet with an MSRP of £299.99 the Q2778VQE is among the most affordable QHD displays on the market.
    Have to say I don't agree with this. You can buy great quality 27" IPS QHD displays from the likes of BenQ with flicker-free for cheaper than this TN display.

    I am aware of the BenQ panel but having not tested it I can't really draw comparisons on the panel quality, but I have a few comments to add nonetheless.

    £299.99 is MSRP, the actual retail price will likely settle in a similar, or potentially lower, price bracket to the BenQ panel.

    With regards to the TN vs IPS comparison, it's not as clear cut as 'IPS is better'. Quality is variable for any panel type and some TN panels are better than some IPS panels, the ROG Swift is a great example and this monitor is another.

    Re: AOC Q2778VQE monitor

    I upgraded to a QHD display a year-ish back. Maybe I'd go 4K for a huge monitor, but seemed sweet spot for a 27".

    I wrote off multi-monitor setups (for more immersive gaming) as with 2 screens I'd be staring at the bezels between them, and with 3 you need some serious GPU power (or 3 low-res monitors).

    What I quite fancy are the 3440x1440 panels (same horizontal pixel count as above, but more across for ultra-widescreen). Samsung even have a nice (or not, I've not seen it) curved one.
    Anybody tried one?

    Re: AOC Q2778VQE monitor

    Dell also offer a 25 inch WQHD monitor for 250 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-U2515H-...s=dell+25+inch

    Better stand, USB 3 Hub (including a quick charging port) and small bezels.

    This AOC seems awfully overpriced. I got my Asus PB278Q (albeit manufacture refurb with a 3 month warranty) for just over 300, and it's better in every way (though I did get mine quite cheap compared to the market at the time).

    Maybe I missed them, but I would have liked to have seen some images showing viewing angles

    The Dell unit has a £289.99 MSRP and is 2inches smaller. Agreed it has a better stand though.

    I think the smaller size works to it'd advantage. Greater pixel density, and same real estate.

    Re: AOC Q2778VQE monitor

    Will this have Freesnyc support? Seems a little crazy to buy a new monitor for gaming if it doesn't. Unless of course you have an Nvidia card, in which case you'd want a Gsync but would probablyhave to pay through the nose for it.

    Given the launch of FreeSync is as close as next week (http://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/...te-19th-march/) AOC wouldn't be launching this monitor now if it had FreeSync support. I don't think it will have it.

    I have one, not a curved one though but its quite amazing when you get 21:9 support (im looking at you advanced warfare) does get slightly too slow when trying to play fast twitch shooters though
