AOC has announced a new, compact 4K display with a PLS panel, and the U2477PWQ also features HDMI 2.0 input.
With a PLS panel providing a full 178/178 viewing angle the U2477PWQ looks like an attractive alternative to TN designs, if similarly priced. The 16.7 million colors specified indicate the use of an 8-bit panel/processing, so this won't offer the same level of color gradation as a 10-bit IPS (or PLS) panel, though likely not an issue unless this is intended for serious color work. As far as the ergonomics are concerned, the display stand offers full hight/pivot/tilt functionality, and there is also a standard 100 mm VESA mount on the back.
Specifications from AOC:
- Monitor Size: 23.6 Inch
- Resolution: 3840x2160@60Hz
- Response time: 4 ms
- Panel Type: PLS
- Viewing Angle: 178/178
- Colors: 16.7 Million
- Brightness: 300 cd/m2 (type)
- Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
- Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 50M:1
- HDCP: Compatible
- Input: DVI, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, D-Sub
- Ergonomics: Pivot, Swivel, Tilt -5/+23; Height Adjustment 130mm
- Other Features: FlickerFree, Vesa Wallmount 100x100, i-Menu, e-Saver, Screen+
- Power Source: 100 - 240V 50/60Hz
- Power Consumption: On 34W; Standby 0.5W; Off: 0.3W
This new display is listed on AOC's European site here, and it appears that the U2477PWQ is not yet available in the United States.
If you live somewhere you can visit or order from a Microcenter and consider a great value enough reason to use a TN based display then check out this deal on an AOC U2870VQE 28" 4K LED display. Currently only $349+taxes you can get a 4k display for your computer or to stream to from your mobile device. Again, at this price you cannot expect either adaptive refresh rate technology but for roughly the same price to pick up an IPS based FreeSync or G_SYNC monitor of comparable size you can grab three of these displays. Connectivity includes VGA, DP, Mini-DP and HDMI (MHL), the latter of which is compatible with mobile devices.
The display is sold as a 10-bit panel, in fact it is an 8bit panel which uses Frame-Rate-Control to up the number of colours to 1.07 billion but frankly unless you are using this for professional purposes you are not going to notice any difference; except the price of course. You can see the full news release below the fold, or just click on that link to order one for as you might expect, the supplies at this price are limited. Otherwise you can keep saving your pennies for a 4k IPS display with true 10bit colour and one of the two adaptive refresh rate technologies.

Tagged: AOC, 144hz, G2460PQU
AOC's G2460PQU is a 24" 1080p display at 144Hz which should give you a smoother experience when gaming. It supports DVI-D, DSUB, HDMI and DisplayPort and has four USB ports on the sides including a power boosted one for recharging. The overall look is rather nice but the power button is oddly placed on the underside alongside the inputs. eTeknix tried out this display and you can see what they thought in their full review.
"Recently I took a look at one of these new 144Hz panels from AOC, namely the G2460PQU and on the whole I was impressed with the quality of the build and the feature set on offer, but most importantly, the difference that the faster refresh rate made to not only game play but also during day-to-day usage."

The AOC d2357Ph has a nice array of inputs, D-Sub, DVI-D/HDMI, Composite, Component S-Video and Display Port are all present which will allow you to use this on almost any system. On the other hand as it is a passive 3D monitor and not a 120Hz display, which R&B Mods refers to as 'poor man's 3D' and while it does offer 3D it is not as impressive as active solutions. 2D picture quality was quite good, with a minimum of backbleed and the screen is physically quite thin which could be an advantage for some users. Check out the full review for more information.
"3D is the latest trend and today we are looking at a 3D screen from AOC; who is also one of our new sponsors. AOC’s d2357Ph is an incredibly thin monitor with LED backlighting, a Full HD resolution and the ability to display passive 3D images. What kind of 3D quality can we expect from it? Stay tuned and we will figure it out."

CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, is not until next week, but the tsunami of information and products that is sure to ensue has already started to rise in the form of leaks and teaser announcements. First off today is an announcement by AOC on a product that they will be showing off at CES. According to Maximum PC, the monitor, dubbed the e2251Fwu, will be pretty impressive by USB monitor standards.
Specifically, the monitor will be a 22 inch, LED back-lit monitor powered and connected to the PC for video via USB. It is HDCP compatible, sports a 1920x1080 resolution, 5ms response time, and 250 cd/m2 (candela per square metre) brightness, The monitor claims a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, though comparing contrast ratios isn't very reliable (but that's another story). Unfortuantely, I wasn't able to dig up much more information from around the web. It will be interesting to see just how much latency the USB connection will add and whether it will be close to the panel's 5ms response time.
Further, the monitor is slated to be available in February for just under 200 bucks. For those of you that have tried out USB connected displays, how well do they work as secondary monitors?
