AOC U27V4EA 27″ 4K IPS Monitor Review
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
AOC is one of the biggest names in the world when it comes to monitors, from professional displays to budget models. From working in the office to gaming at home (or gaming at the office and working from home, I’m not your boss!), they’ve really got something for every budget and requirement you can think of. Today, however, I’m very excited by this monitor. It’s a 4K IPS panel, which is something that’ll get a big thumbs up from me right away. However, this one has been built to deliver both those technologies at a much more affordable price point. It’s a simple 27″ display, with a 60Hz refresh rate, a 4ms response time and honestly, that’s about the bulk of it. For a bit of working and gaming at home, you don’t need all the latest bleeding-edge features all the time. AOC certainly has more expensive models, such as the Porsche Design PD27 or the G-Line series, but can they still deliver on a more budget-friendly model?

What AOC Had to Say
“The U27V4EA boasts a 3-sides frameless and flat 27” IPS display with UHD resolution, in a clean and minimal design. It features easy-on-the-eye technologies like Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light and Adaptive sync. With a 4K UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels – four times the resolution of a Full HD display – the monitor boasts a pixel density that delivers brilliantly sharp images with the finest details.”
No matter if you are viewing photos, videos, a magazine layout in InDesign or playing your favourite game – we want your content to look excellent from whatever angle you are seeing it. That is why this display comes with an advanced IPS panel, which produces brilliant colours and offers wide viewing angles. This way, images always look excellent and accurate, regardless from which angle you – or your friends and co-workers sitting or standing next to you – are looking at the screen.
Adaptive Sync aligns your monitor’s vertical refresh rate with the frame rate delivered by your GPU, making your gameplay and casual gaming experience even more fluid by eliminating stuttering, tearing and judder. This feature is also useful when enjoying videos and other visual media, for a smoother entertainment.
Built-in speakers make it easy to catch up with family, friends and colleagues. For movies, music, games and more, you’ll enjoy quality audio without the hassle of connecting external speakers.
AOC Flicker-Free Technology utilises a DC (Direct Current) backlight panel, reducing flickering light levels. With eye strain and fatigue absolutely minimized, feel free to enjoy those long, intense gaming sessions in comfort!
