AOC 31.5 inch Panel
It is 71x42x1.5cm, the inverted ‘V’ shaped stand has arms of 38cm and the open area at the front is 44cm across, the stand raises the panel 11cm from your desk. The weight including stand is just over 7kilos. The amount the centre of the screen differs from the edges is 3.5cm.
The viewable screen when using the diagonal imperial measurement is 31.5inches in 16:9 ratio. The top and both sides are very small which means should you want a second panel they could sit side by side with virtually no break. The bottom is larger but still only 2cm deep. There are five buttons on the underside near the right side that can control the display if you think you can improve it.
There are speakers but like all such internal offering are unable to provide enough sound for a decent sized room but ideal for notifications etc. when sitting by the screen.
The screen by default will show 1920x1080 (HD) but it is capable of 2560x1440 (QHD) at an amazing 144HZ and 1MS response time so ideal for gamers.
The 3.5cm curve of the screen means you at the centre of whatever is going on with everything happening around you.
The second link below shows what you would see if you turned the Flicker Free option off, not pleasant to look at. Another illustration on that link shows what would happen if the Free Sync technology was not working.
At the back is where the kettle type lead puts power in and along the back in a line are two HDMI connections one is HDMI 1.4 and the other is HDMI 2, there is also a Display Port connection as well as a headphone out socket for those with a decent set of headphones can hear those tiny sounds that could save your – gaming – life.
Power consumption when on is 37watts and .5watt when in standby. The panel with a three year warranty.
The screen is bright, clear, sharp and has plenty of contrast a few figures dynamic contrast of 80million to 1, static contrast of 3000:1. As with most recent panels the 178 degree viewing angle is mentioned, however with the curve I would not like to view too far off centre for a prolonged period. Finally for the facts bit there are 16.7 million colours available.
I enjoyed my test period and connected the panel not only to my own somewhat aging review PC but also two different notebooks that are being reviewed. While I am not a gamer I was happy with the display and it handled multiple open screens without problems.
