AOC Officially Announces the u3477Pqu 34-Inch WQHD Monitor

AOC is setting new standards for "large": with the u3477Pqu, the display specialist has set sail to new shores as it combines size with enhanced productivity. This 34" (86.7 cm ) WQHD monitor is the right choice for cinema enthusiasts and demanding multi-task users alike. Stunning image clarity, detail and 1.07 billion colours make sure you get the full picture when displaying high-resolution images with 4.95 million pixels on the UltraWide panoramic 21:9 screen.

The monitor boasts an impressive resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels on the more than a quarter of a square meter display area, and the aspect ratio allows viewers to watch movies without black bars on top and bottom. Thanks to a great interplay between hardware and software, users can easily watch a movie and play a computer game at the same time on the same screen. Alongside many different ports like USB 3.0 and DisplayPort, AOC offers an integrated HDMI port with MHL functionality which enables the user to directly mirror smartphones and tablet screens onto the big screen.

Productivity redefined
Multimedia editors, engineers as well as stock market analysts or any other professionals working with spreadsheets are likely to appreciate the benefits of the model's productivity-enhancing features. Gone are the days with endless scrolling or switching between different windows, since a display area of 79.9 x 33.5 cm - more than a quarter of a square meter - enables the user to place almost four A4 pages alongside one another, or get a quick overview over 16 video streams, e.g. from surveillance cameras, displayed side-by-side without distortion.

Noteworthy too is the fact that the monitor has the same height as a 27" monitor. Thus, you don't need to move your head up and down when viewing complex diagrams. What's more, due to its size as well as its sharp and detailed image, this screen is also useful for presenting content to a group of people. Equally noteworthy are the picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture features, which allow watching images simultaneously from different sources. In addition, thanks to AOC's innovative Screen+ software which divides the large display into up to four panes, brokers - for example - no longer need to decide between watching the stock market performance and finishing equally important work for the next day. Full ergonomic flexibility results in higher productivity. Therefore, the 34" display comes with a wide range of features that help to reduce fatigue: height adjustability of 130 mm, pivot, swivel and tilt. Furthermore, the monitor can be fixed on VESA compliant wall mounts and racks.

Entertainment redefined
AOC's largest IPS monitor, the u3477Pqu, offers an impressive 4.95 million pixels on a screen diagonal of 34" (86.7 cm ). For demanding multi-task users and cinema enthusiasts, as well as those looking for a monitor that combines productivity and cinema feeling, the u3477Pqu delivers top-notch and finely detailed pictures displayed in a 21:9 format. Thanks to the Real 8-bit +FRC arrangement, more than 1 billion colours can be produced.

Impressively, the 34" model delivers a very high refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel response time of 5 ms only. Thus, the display is eminently suited for fast-paced entertainment such as computer games. In addition, with the u3477Pqu, AOC has managed to significantly improve the Mura uniformity issue; an effect that looks like clouds on dark screens of many monitors. Equipped with various signal sources, great colour management, crystal-clear images and a set of integrated 3W speakers, the monitor is ideally suited for watching movies that require superior resolution and sound. Furthermore, the slick bezel design with ultra slim borders allows multi-monitor users to group several displays together making them appear as one large uninterrupted work space. The 34" monitor also utilizes a high-grade IPS panel for extra wide viewing angles of up to 178° both vertically and horizontally. On top of that, with a luminosity of 320 cd/m², the u3477Pqu is even suited for working environments with bright ambient light.

The green connection talent
Like with many other of its monitors, AOC provides the u3477Pqu with manifold connections and keeps an eye on the environment. Alongside sustainability certificates such as EnergyStar 6.0 and TCO 6.0, the model also comes with intelligent software such as Eco Mode and e-Saver. Furthermore, AOC equips the 34" monitor with four USB ports, two each of the 2.0 and 3.0 standards. Finally, the integrated DisplayPort makes sure that image transmissions are fast and seamless. For Android enthusiasts, the HDMI connector also offers MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link). MHL enables the user to directly mirror smartphones and tablet screens onto the big screen. Thus, connecting a smartphone with the 34" WQHD monitor can make video calls an even better experience, or allow the user to showcase presentations stored on the smartphone with ease.

AOC offers a 3 year warranty with on-site exchange service for the u3477Pqu. The model will be available as of September 2014 at an MSRP of 499 GBP incl. VAT.

OK this is definitely on my next monitor list. AOC have been kicking ass over the past year or two.

My only concern is how the PR peeps over at AOC perceive how users may use the screen;

That would require some serious multi-tasking skills.

LG panel?
If so then Linus has done a video review of that monitor already. Lg one is really expensive so 500Gbp might be a better deal if it is using the same panel.

The LG 34UM95 was going for about ~$1500 USD but lately I've seen it go for as low as ~$999 USD.

If my conversion is right the U3477PQU would go for about ~$853 USD which is a nice improvement on the price of the LG 34UM95 but not necessarily earth shattering savings (even if there are some spec differences).

Edit:

I hope my conversion was off because a bigger savings would be even better,...

That price included vat... so yeah off by a touch ;P

I am getting ~$710 for direct GBP-vat to usd... Could be lower as tech is usually closer to 1:1 than the actual exchange rate.

It's possible with non intensive game. Hearthstone and Civ series come to my mind.

...the right choice for cinema enthusiasts...
Is there 24p support? If not, then this is not for cinema enthusiasts...
