AOC will release a 34″-170Hz monitor with small LED backlight in July for €1,849 – Computer – News

I find it incomprehensible that small LED screens are so expensive. This monitor has very high brightness and good connectivity (HDMI 2.1, DP 1.4, USB-C with 90W PD). This makes it an interesting monitor in all respects for gaming and office work. But the price … it does not matter.

The Price: Alienware AW3423DW Black QD-OLED for about 1,300 euros, which is guaranteed to win the picture quality. Sure, it has some flaws, think meager connections (no HDMI 2.1 or USB-C with PD), weird pixel structure with a color block and active fans. But in general, the image quality is much better and cheaper. The 5 million self-illuminating pixels crush just 1,152 areas of AOC’s mini-LED light.

Furthermore, with a little bit of contact/file searching Price: LG C2 42″ (Dark Silver Base) Black Available for 999 euros. Sure – an OLED TV as a screen has some flaws (no display port/USB-C, standby is more difficult, risk of burning, 42″ = large), but the 42C2 also supports 3440 x 1440 with black bars. Enjoy gaming in full 4K, plus you have 4 HDMI 2.1 ports, all of which support Free Sync, VRR, and 48Gbps bandwidth…not to mention the 0.1ms pixel response time.

The AOC’s price has to drop significantly to be remotely interesting, because the suggested retail price of 1849 is just crazy for a 34-inch UWQHD LCD…
