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.

  • Monitor Size: 23.6 Inch

I wish they would stop listing DCR as a spec. It just never amounts to anything.

4K @ 24-inch? Seems pointless to me.

I thought HDMI 2.0 was DOA ... At least that's what AMD would have you believe since they still don't support it.
