AOC U2868PQU review

 

While every company imaginable seems to be piling into the budget-4K monitor market, the AOC U2868PQU 4K is proof that only a select few are qualified to do it right.

In the end, the AOC U2868PQU isn’t the bargain it looks on paper.

AOC U2868PQU

 

The AOC U2868PQU is a full-featured, 28-inch Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) monitor that delivers solid performance at a reasonable price.

Sharp UHD image quality. Fast pixel response. Generous port selection. Fully adjustable stand.

Narrow viewing angles. Skewed greens.

Conclusion If you're in the market for a reasonably priced 28-inch UHD monitor, put the AOC U2868PQU on your short list. It's packed with a variety of video and USB ports and has a fully adjustable ergonomic stand that lets you position the screen for...

AOC U2868PQU 4K UHD 28 inch Monitor review

 

2014 is the year of Ultra HD 4K. Prices have been dropping steadily in recent months and today we lo 2014 is the year of Ultra HD 4K. Prices have been dropping steadily in recent months and today we look at the latest 4K panel from AOC, the U2868PQU....

Very competitively priced.

onboard speakers are weak.

Kitguru says: At £499.99 this is a very difficult screen to ignore. There are some flaws, but all-in-all this screen is bargain priced.

Bad quality

 

Considering an RMA. Just might not be worth it to go without a monitor for 2+ weeks waiting on the manufactuer. Spend the extra money and avoid this monitor

Good price for a 4k monitor of its size. Has plenty of inputs. Built in usb3.0 hub and a quality stand

There are a lot of things wrong with this monitor ; 1. It has a stuck pixel in the center of the screen. Very noticeable ; 2. The screen randomly makes this loud pop noise which im assuming comes from the speakers. Scares the crud out of me and it cant...

Good In the Future

 

I am currently using this monitor to watch TV. Looks good, and if the tech catches up I may try it again as a monitor. Good for fun - not so much for a professional solution to screen real estate.

This monitor looks great. It is huge. The price is right

I'm using my old monitor! I'm a web developer and the majority of the programs I work in show up blurry/aliased super weird on Windows 10! If you could leave the font sizes set at 100%, it looks wonderful but tiny. I can't comfortably code on that all...

Gamers BEWARE

 

So basically the image is great but it's a pain to actually use since you feel like your computer is constantly playing catch up. Now I know that some people will wonder if it was my gpu that couldn't keep up but I tried several different one's to rule...

Beautiful build quality. The adjustable stand is one that all monitor manufacturer's should be judged by. Matte screen so minimally reflective. Comes with every cable imaginable for connections. USB 3.0 hub on monitor and fast charging port for...

1st thing, upon turning on the monitor you're typically greeted with a capacitor blowing sound of a *POP* from the built in speakers regardless of the input type ; Secondly, a terribly annoying flickering at the bottom of the screen, again regardless...

Don't shut off

 

Still a darn good monitor but be aware of these small but annoying problems.

See below

I wrote another review of this monitor and all of what I said in that review stands. But there is a small problem. Always make sure you turn this monitor on before you turn on your computer and don't turn it off while your computer is running. It has...
