This review is from: AOC Q2770PQU Black 27" 5ms WQHD HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS Panel 300 cd/m2 20,000,000:1 height&Pivot adjustable Built-in Speakers&USB 3.0
Pros: 4.5 eggs
Samsung Super-PLS: Fantastic colors, very few defects, decent gamma.
100% pixel perfect/Almost no IPS "glow"/100% bleed free.
No Pulse Width Modulation may offer better eye comfort.
Effective controls for a good low light setting. Colors out of the box are not perfect, but they are very pleasing. Calibration with an x-rite i1 display Pro yielded excellent gamma, perfect color distribution, and a good deep black that was *mostly* uniform.
OSD menu is fantastic, very deep, lots of features, but it is functional and fairly easy to navigate, I liked the gamma control. USB/software OSD control is a wonderful feature. Overdrive is worthwhile, but only to a point, the highest setting was too far.
Speed is a possible issue here, but ghosting is absolutely minimal without the Overdrive too high. Dedicated gaming preset has less input lag. For light to moderate gaming this monitor is a fantastic choice.
For office work and general use this is an outstanding value, offering good detail from white to black and without any big surprises anywhere on the massive array of pixels.
The ergonomics are excellent: stand is very sturdy and bottom heavy but the panel itself is lightweight and easy to adjust. Tilt/swivel/height/portrait 90. Unaggressive matte coating did not present much crystalline effect and combined with the fine grain matte bezel (very nice finish) is very resistant to glare and reflection without taking away much clarity.
Cons: Strange dark "stain" in 1 corner on white. It's feint, brownish/yellowish. I guess I would call this PLS "glow". There is a *very* feint but much wider dispersing silver tinted glow to some of the other corners but it is hardly worth mentioning--it might as well just be slight glare.
Contrast is not ideal. After calibration my unit hit 705:1, which surprised me a bit because the low end gamma and shading detail is quite good. I expected closer to 900:1. This is because the peak brightness is not nearly as high as the specifications indicate, while the absolute darkest the unit can go is better but still not ideal. Makes it a little difficult to see detail in content with bad lighting, for example--where a display like a modern AMVA really shines. All IPS derivative technologies suffer slightly from this, but some more than others, this guy is only about average in this respect among other 1440p IPS models.
Gaming mode is limited in color/brightness controls (sadly it's *way* to bright).
It's oretty good and heavy. Could use a handle built into the stand. Not fun or comfortable to move or set up.
Other Thoughts: USB hub, nice. Lots and lots of extras, but... it's just not fast enough to satisfy a gamer coming from a display like the Eizo Foris FG2421. For good colors and fast response and 120Hz it's that (with a lot of ghosting and weird uniformity quirks) or an imported bargain brand overclockable monitor. Well, at least Newegg sells those, as well.
In short, if you want a 4.5 egg monitor with a little less oomph (speed), this is it. It's a nearly glow free, very high quality panel and the chassis is very well built. But if you are looking for fast pixel response and low input lag, there are some monitors that come direct from Korea that will be better for your (and my) needs.
