The AOC U27V4EA is a competent business monitor with a small set of features to improve playing games on the side (but only a small one). The 4K resolution comes at a keen price, and colour accuracy is great if calibrated.
As a no-frills route towards a faithfully coloured 4K desktop for office and multimedia usage, the U27V4EA is decent value.
However, the no-frills description is accurate, as there is virtually no ergonomic adjustment, and the only extras are the built-in stereo speakers, with no USB hub.
The Philips 288E2UAE provides marginally better performance and includes a USB hub for a little bit less. The AOC U27V4EA is worth considering, but the Philips alternative is the cheaper, better specified option.
