AOC Reveals V4 Monitor Series
Peter Donnell / 4 months ago
AOC has just revealed its latest monitor line, the V4 Series. They come in both QHD and UHD variants, with panel sizes of 23.8″ (60.5 cm), 27″ (68.6 cm) and up to 31.5″ (80 cm). so there should be a size and resolution to suit your requirements, as well as your budget.
Their design is nice and simple, not that you need to reinvent the wheel to make a monitor, of course. With a simple yet attractive 3-side frameless design, they’re not too flashy, but that is reflected in their wallet-friendly price tags.
Each of the displays comes equipped with an IPS panel. That means you’ll benefit from vivid and natural colour reproduction. The 75 Hz refresh rate of the QHD models makes motion 25% smoother than regular 60 Hz monitors. Not much of an increase, but honestly, it is noticeable. Additionally, Adaptive-Sync support in all models eliminates tear and stutter when the framerate varies, which makes these monitors a great fit for casual gamers.
All the monitors feature the exact same design, but of course, the size and panel technologies do vary per model.
AOC Reveals V4 Monitor Series
AOC’s V4 series combines image quality, versatility and attractive design with a great price. Built to be future proof, all four displays employ QHD (2560 x 1440) or 4K/UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) panels, a significant upgrade from the commonly established Full HD standard.
The V4 series models are also equipped with flat IPS panels, which are great for productivity work such as spreadsheets, drawing, graphic design, photo-editing etc.
Thanks to their accurate colour reproduction and wide viewing angles (178/178°), which dramatically reduce the horizontal/vertical colour shift and further improve the user experience.
The V4 monitors’ versatility also extends to the wide connectivity options, including a DisplayPort for connecting desktop/laptop PCs, HDMI ports suitable for streaming sticks, gaming consoles or any other HDMI-using device.
The stand allows tilt adjustment, while the 100×100 VESA mount option enables alternative installations with wall or desk mounts, such as AOC’S AS110 or AD100, for full ergonomic flexibility. All V4 models are also equipped with two 2 W speakers.
U27V4EA 4K UHD
The U27V4EA comes with a 4K Ultra HD panel, resulting in an impressive 163 pixels per inch on its 27″ display, for extra sharp text and images and an increased screen real estate for a variety of applications. The U27V4EA also has a higher peak brightness of 350 nits, making it usable even in brightly lit environments. Like its QHD siblings, this 4K model has a 4 ms GtG response time and Adaptive-Sync support to eliminate stutter and tearing, making it a great 4K display choice for casual gamers, too.
The Q24V4EA (23.8″), Q27V4EA (27″) and Q32V4 (31.5″) feature IPS panels running at QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) at a 75 Hz refresh rate as well as 4 ms GtG response time. The Low Blue Light mode and FlickerFree technology reduce eye fatigue for comfortable usage for hours on end.
Price and Availability
The AOC Q24V4EA, Q27V4EA, Q32V4 and U27V4EA will be available from April 2021 at an RRP of £159, £209, £229 and £289, respectively.
