If you fancy upgrading your display to something a little bigger than a 24″ but don’t fancy going all the way up to the always expensive 30″ platform, then AOC might have something right up your street. The catchily titled q2770Pqu monitor, features a 27″ LED backlit LCD display at a WQHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
While those numbers may not seem like much over your standard 1080p resolution, those extra few hundred pixels in each direction add up to almost double the amount of pixel density as a traditional 1920 x 1080 display. That means extra screen real estate (also aided by the extra few inches) which makes this great for professionals or those working with large documents and images.
The response time isn’t astounding at 5ms, but that’s low enough that most gamers will be more than happy with it; the keenest of eyes may spot the odd bit of ghosting, but it shouldn’t be too bad. Your friends and family will be able to gather round though, as the viewing angle is a near flat, 178 degrees, so nobody is getting left in the dark.
Connectivity is pretty decent with VGA, DVI-D and HDMI ports, as well as build in speakers and a USB hub (featuring 4 x USB 2.0 ports) nestled in the bezel.
All in all, you can pick up this display for £430 starting today with all purchases coming with a three year warranty.
KitGuru Says: I hear Zardon is rocking a pair of 30 inchers these days. Makes me feel a bit inadequate with my mismatched 24s. What display set up do you guys run?
