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).
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.
