AOC G2460PG

We have seen Nvidia’s G-Sync technology before when we tested it on a 27″ 2560×1440 144Hz monitor, but we had concerns over the horsepower needed to make the most of its 144Hz Refresh Rate. Well, the AOC 2460PG answers that concern…

You can also setup game profiles to automatically switch the monitor into a certain mode when a game is launched. However, none are yet available for the XL2730Z.

Philips BDM4065UC

The final setup option concerned DisplayPort. By default the Philips uses DisplayPort 1.1, which only supports 4K at 30Hz. To get 60Hz at 4K working properly, we delved into the OSD and changed the relevant option in the setup menu.

Samsung S34E790C

The menu itself is better than Philips’ effort, too. Rather than being pixellated, it’s sharp and slick, and it’s a tad faster too.

NEC PA322UHD

The mere mention of the terms ‘wide-gamut’ and ‘colour-accurate’ in the same breath is usually a recipe for an expensive, but apply those terms to a 32in 4K display and it’s no surprise to see the price skyrocket: the NEC MultiSync PA322UHD retails at...

AOC U3477PQU

This AOC 34inch Panel measures 82.5x37x2cm; its stand is rectangular 30x22cm and raises the panel between 6 and 27cm in landscape mode. This is certainly the largest - in screen size – panel that I have reviewed but even with its fairly weighty base it...

Samsung U28D590D

Our only qualm came when we’d finally got the U28D590D out of its box and put it together. The tiny stand looks stylish, but it’s not sturdy – a tap on the top of the screen caused some serious wobble.
