AOC has been one of the most aggressive companies when it comes to launching new displays, with its gaming "AGON" series seeing the addition of multiple monitors in the past few months. The new C4008VU8 doesn't quite tick the gaming aesthetics box, however, which isn't all that bad. Personally, I much prefer its clean, no-frills design, absent of some over-design features.

The panel seems to be an interesting one, nonetheless, with its 40" size, 16:9, 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution on a 10-bit MVA panel, with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Its 5 ms response time is relatively good, though the absence of any VRR (variable refresh-rate) technology such as AMD's FreeSync or NVIDIA's G-SYNC is puzzling. The lack of HDR support, however, is kind of a downer, but a necessity when one considers the display's maximum 300 cd/m² brightness. The panel boasts an 85% NTSC wide color gamut with 1.07 billion colors, with 178º horizontal and vertical viewing angle on a 1800R curved display. As for adjustments, the monitor can only be tilted: 5 degrees down, and 13.5 degrees up. Connection-wise, the AOC C4008VU8 boasts 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x HDMI 1.4, 2x DisplayPort 1.2, and 1x VGA connector (only 8 months ago I would be using such a connection myself, so I really shouldn't judge. There are legacy use cases, after all, and more options are always better.) There are also 4x USB 3.0 ports available, one of which can be used for fast charging devices. The AOC is available with a MSRP of $899, though you may find some retailers selling these for less already.

Absense of GSync is not puzzling (given its costs for hardly any benefit over FS), absence of FreeSync which is there for free in most upscalers is.
Heck, with all the HDR buzz, they could have gone straight for FreeSync 2.

I naturally agree. I only see benefits in supporting FreeSync, but there must be some reason why it wasn't adopted here. Engineers don't just make their products "worse" for no reason, I'd hope. Though it could beg the question whether this display, at this price-point, with FreeeSync support, wouldn't cannibalize some of their AGON line of gaming monitors, which I expect have some bigger margins.

Ikenai borderline!

Who the f**king f**k would buy a 40" 4K monitor to use it with VGA than only supports up to 1920x1200? That is pants-on-head retarded.
