AOC 34 inch curved screen 

Image of author
Straight from the box this screen shows 3440x1440 which has the ability to show three screens of information at near to full HD IE 1920x1080 side by side with no real overlap and after a small amount of pruning this means no switching of screens just move your mouse to the bit you want and work away.

The AOC CU34G2 measures 80.5x36.5cm, the screen is 2cm deep at its edges, and it has close to 6cm of concave curve at the middle. While this initially seems a lot sit at least one metre from the screen and you are able to view everything on up to three screens and work on any of them with ease.

I also was able to view full screen displays including the odd video or three from a little further back.

Zoom meeting for twenty of so are also accommodated without either resorting to speaker view to follow with all attendees in view.

The units stand is an ‘X’ with the width 48cm and the depth 26cm. The stand lifts the screen by 15cm from your desk. There is a god amount of back tilt and even some forward tilt for those relaxing on the sofa.

All the connections are in a single line pointing down so are easy to get at. The kettle style mains lead is on the left and two HDMI and a USB ‘C’ are on the right. Further right is a 4 port USB3 hub with one port always live while there is power going to the unit.

The units controls are under the front edge of the screen in a line of five push buttons towards the right edge there is a single pin hole white LED just to the right of the last button this is on the screen surround.

Talking of the screen surround it is 1cm on both the sides and the top and 2cm on the bottom of the screen.

The speakers give an acceptable level of sound for most tasks but as always I find that external speakers give better sound for watching movies partly because most movies have far too high sound effects and far too low speech levels.

This is described as a gaming monitor but while my tastes were mainly office related I did appreciate the 1ms refresh rate and FreeSync but only in a couple of demo games just to see the screen changes, the colour gamut was good and even blacks showed up well.

Watching an HD stream via YouTube 'full screen' produced top to bottom display with a 10cm clear band either side and this was very watchable.

While it is large I do not think it is that expensive and viewing up to three windows might mean that only one unit is required whereas with smaller panels you may need two or even three.

At the time of publication the AOC CU34G2 is available from Amazon for £369.97 including free delivery.

Full details can be found on the AOC website.
