Ultra-wide 29in display, good screen brightness and colour consistency
Brightness consistency was very good, with the bottom right side corner being the only area of much difference, the worst part being 6.2% dimmer at 100% Brightness and at 50% Brightness there was only one area at 3.5% dimmer. Colour uniformity was good, if not great, with the bottom left and middle areas showing variation up to 4.5 Delta- E, the bottom right being 3.0 and everywhere else at under 2.5 at 100% Brightness.
Must use PC input for dual source, Doesn't scale/letterbox
The biggest "problem" if you want to call it that with the AOC Q2963PM is the price. For $500, you can get two smaller displays and put them side by side. Sure, it isn't one, ultra-wide display, but it will probably cost you less than $500. For example, if you just use the 16:9 with a 1080p input, you end up with an image that is 23.75" diagonal. Right now, AOC's own 24" e2460Sd will run you less than $150 on Amazon (the MSRP is $190).
Looks good, feels okay
was really skeptical when I first saw this deal. A stylish, cheap, and IPS monitor. After a few decent reviews I decided to order and give AOC a try.
When I first opened up the box, everything looked amazing and gorgeous. Once I started to put it together, I began to have my doubts. I assembled everything together, however my monitor was slightly tilted. When I checked the stand, I noticed that the monitor was not completely locked into place.
I picked up this monitor a few weeks ago to replace a 60hz Asus 27" monitor that I had. I have eyes that are pretty sensitive and after viewing anything for a few hours on my other monitor I could get a headache fairly easily. I used to never get a headache with my old 160hz CRT. When I heard Asus was going to take their 3D monitor, drop the 3D stuff that came with it and produce a 144hz version of their 120hz 3D monitor I was pretty pumped.
Screen is capable of displaying images in high quality
On the whole though, the i2353Ph is a no-nonsense monitor for the modern viewer. It has all the requisite hardware and technology to deliver high level performance. The best part is that the only effort required on the part of the user is to plug it in to power socket after removing it out of its packaging. Standard settings of 50 per cent brightness and 50 per cent contrast work like a charm and not much tweaking was required.
A good quality, low power, low price monitor
I will start my review by acknowledging that this monitor can not support HD video, but if you are using this for business purposes you generally can get away with this and not even notice. This is because this monitor only comes with a VGA connection, and does not support HDMI cables or DVI cables which deliver HD.
Although the monitor does look very nice and crisp, if you need true HD support you should consider paying a little bit extra and get a more full featured device.
Poor quality video output
The problem with the AOC mySTage e2343Fi monitor isn't so much the fact that the screen is poor, or that the speakers in the base are lacklustre. Neither is it that the finish and build quality feel cheap, that the price is high, or that the iPod/iPhone dock doesn't do what you hope. No, the problem is all of these at once.
The panel itself, at 1,920x1,080 pixels, might have impressed us five years ago, but it's not good enough today.
