AOC 28inch Flat Panel 

Image of author
This is a 28inch flat panel that has a fast 1ms response time and is equally at home at 3840x2160 or at 1920x1080 The first to suit a gamer the second for someone needing just a little more assistance at the standard resolution due to less than perfect eye sight. Unlike most flat panels this has speakers that are as good as standalone speakers as they are a pair of 3w offerings.

The screen measures 62x37x1.6cm. Both the sides and top have very narrow borders, the base has a 2cm border with five control buttons under the edge near the right side and the front shows a pin hole LED when power is on.

The connections are in a single line 8cm up from the base on an overhang. They are from right to left four USB ports (one always on providing the unit is powered) then the upstream USB. Next are two HDMI 2.1 ports and two Display Ports. Next is a 3.5mm headphone socket and finally a kettle style mains socket.

The refresh rate is 144Hz and the pixel density is 157ppi.

This is both a landscape and portrait offering. In landscape it can be as little as 4cm above your desk and a maximum of 17cm. There is a good amount of both back and forward tilt as well as side to side movement. The last mentioned is quiet unusual and you normally have to move the whole panel to get side to side movement.

The stand is an ‘X’ shape with double the size in front. The stand is 23cm from back to front.

Enjoy a fluid and ghosting free gaming experience for your favourite RTS and RPG games with a response time of 1ms GtG, G-Sync and FreeSync. 

The colour range is excellent and there is also ample brightness.

This is a very nice unit but it is not cheap, the extra 4K resolution enables great game play as well as amazing video watching. In portrait mode it is great for long web pages.

If money is no object this is a brilliant unit from AOC.

Full details can be found on the AOC web site.

At the time of publication the AOC U28G2XU2 is available from Amazon for £629.99.
