AOC Q3279VWF QHD 75Hz Freesync 32″ VA Gaming Monitor
Enjoy an action-packed gaming experience. The AOC Q3279VWF 31.5in gaming monitor comes with a QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution, as well as AMD FreeSync anti-tearing and anti-stuttering technology for smooth, detailed gameplay. It also comes with Low Blue Light for eye protection, various gaming customisation tools like AOC Shadow Control, Game Color, Game Mode, VGA, Dual-link DVI, HDMI 1.4 & DisplayPort.
With an MVA panel, 75Hz refresh rate at 1440p and huge 31.5in display, this monitor hits the sweet spot.
The jump from 1080p to 1440p may not sound much, but actually doubles the number of pixels. That’s why 1440p monitors tend to be substantially more expensive than Full HD alternatives, especially 32in monsters such as this one. Even if the AOC Q3279VWF had such shocking image quality it made you want to cry, for only $395 you’d still feel like you grabbed something of a bargain. Especially considering the panel natively runs at 75Hz and comes with AMD FreeSync, providing a smoother experience for gamers compared to a regular 60Hz monitor.
The AOC Q3279VWF uses an MVA panel with matte coating, and while MVA panels are renowned for their high contrast ratio, I’ve yet to come across one like the Q3279VWF. At a contrast ratio of 4,276:1, it makes the image vibrant and pop full of colour. At 90% brightness in sRGB mode, the panel also achieves the lowest black luminance I’ve seen in a consumer-grade monitor. At 0.047cd/m², you’ll observe a true black colour – exactly what you’d want when watching movies with dark scenes.
There are plenty of video inputs – DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, DVI and VGA – along with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but there’s no USB hub or headphone stand (a shame for a monitor that clearly has its eye on gamers). The OSD, which is accessed through the buttons found on the bottom right-hand corner, gives you access to a host of different options. These include the Overdrive level, colour settings and brightness.
