AOC Launches a New Affordable 4K Monitor

If you do a lot of work on the computer (art, video production, etc), or have a nice gaming rig then it’s not a bad idea to start thinking about getting a new 4K monitor.  It’s the way resolution and HD is going, which means you’ll need to it keep up with the times.  They’re not always the cheapest things, however, but now AOC has released a new 28-inch monitor for only $349


AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces their U2870VQE, an affordable 28-inch 4K monitor with 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD Resolution. The 28” large screen size offers more space and four times the resolution of a Full HD display and delivers clear crisp images to the value-minded shopper. The display features a professional non-glare TN panel with fast refresh and response times, along with 1 billion colors for rich details and ample connectivity options. The U2870VQE monitor is available today on sale at Microcenter for $349 ($499 MSRP).

Ultra High Definition (UHD) allows users to see more on the screen at one time and gives more real estate to the user. It also shows more detail for sharper and clearer images.  Users working on the photos, designs, or even a wide spreadsheet will appreciate the crisp picture from a UHD display, which is usually reserved for monitors with much higher price points.

The U2870VQE features ample connectivity options with VGA, DP, Mini-DP and HDMI (MHL). With MHL-enabled HDMI connection, users can connect their smart device to their monitor to simultaneously charge and stream mobile multimedia on to the 28″ 4K display. The monitor boasts 1ms (gray-to-gray) response time, 70,000,000:1 mega dynamic contrast ratio and a 10-bit panel (8-bit + FRC) with 1.07 billion colors. The Frame-Rate-Control (FRC) technology is used to enhance the color depth of the 8-bit panel and boost the normal 16.7 million colors found in most displays to 1.07 billion colors. More colors mean that the panel can present more depth and richer color, for more vivid images.

For designers, the high definition, high pixel density provides great details for precision work such as architecture design. With the UHD resolution and large screen, CAD designers can see more on screen and spend less time scrolling in and out to accomplish more. If you are a gamer looking to dominate, the 4K resolution and 1ms fast response time will deliver. Combining impressive technical specifications with modern aesthetics, the display has an extra narrow bezel and hairline texture in the front with matte in the back for a sleek and attractive look. The 4K display has tilt flexibility and is also VESA 100mm wall-mount compatible.
