The AOC Q3279VWF isn't exactly a dream come true in terms of performance, but it does deliver a lot for a low price. At the time of writing, we couldn't find a cheaper 32in-class screen on the market, and those that were closest in price only offered Full HD resolution. In other words, a 31.5in screen for £200 is already great value, but seeing that it offers 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, this really is a bargain.
A deal like this would imply rock-bottom capabilities. However, whilst we weren't impressed with the image quality, the compromises in this area aren't as great as the low price would imply.
The stand adjustments are very restricted, and you can't use a VESA attachment either. It's also not that bright. But the contrast ratio is very good, and there are four different video inputs. The 75Hz refresh is also a little above the 60Hz minimum, and there's FreeSync available too.
You don't get a USB hub or built-in speakers, but the OSD has a comprehensive set of configuration options, although the presets don't offer quite the range of colour temperatures we would have expected. But this is a small consideration. The main headline remains – the price. You can't even get a TN screen this size for £200, so a MVA panel with this resolution is unique. If you're looking to up your screen size and resolution but are short on cash, this could be the screen bargain of the year.
