8 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

AOC is one of the top rated PC monitor manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and AOC also has excellent reviews for its medium monitors.

Just Released Four Months Ago

Being released just four months ago, this PC display is likely to have more advanced features.

Reasonably Priced

One person said that this PC monitor was good value for money. This year mentioned “Better-than-full-HD monitors are becoming cheaper with the average price of 4K models dropping markedly compared to just two years ago” in their review of the AOC U3277PWQU.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that have been available for the last year, the U3277PWQU has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Height Adjustment

Medium monitors that came out in the last year have maximum height adjustments of between 10mm and 510mm, and the average maximum height adjustment is 130mm. The maximum height adjustment of the U3277PWQU of 180 millimeters is one of the highest amongst latest medium monitors.

Chart Edit

3840 X 2160 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the AOC U3277PWQU is 3840 x 2160. That's over four times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080).

This LCD screen's resolution (3840 x 2160) is in fact the best resolution amongst all recently released flatpanel monitors.

A 640 x 350 graphics resolution is the worst resolution amongst comparable types of LCD screen.

Quite Big Display Diagonal

The U3277PWQU has one of the bigger screen sizes (80 centimeters) amongst medium monitors of this age. The smallest display diagonal of latest medium monitors is 49cm and the biggest is 690cm.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Display Brightness

Medium monitors that are a similar age to the U3277PWQU have display brightness of between 200 cd/m² and 800 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². At 350 candellas per square meter, the U3277PWQU has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the U3277PWQU.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

The U3277PWQU is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that are a similar age to the U3277PWQU are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC screen that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the Acer GN276HL[plb_3495354_price], or the Benq Zowie XL2430[plb_3761443_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other medium monitors that were launched in the last year, the U3277PWQU does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative PC displays which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to consider including the Lenovo X1[plb_3755263_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The U3277PWQU does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other medium monitors that have been available for a similar time to the U3277PWQU also do not have an integrated card reader.

We think you might also be interested in alternative LCD screens which also have an integrated card reader including the 2407WFP[pl_3247392_price], or the 2408WFP[pl_3249739_price] both from DELL which is also higher rated.

Running Costs Are Very High

The U3277PWQU is in the most expensive 11% of all 395 new medium monitors that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the U3277PWQU will cost £100 over 5 years to run.


Only One HDMI Port

The U3277PWQU is a one HDMI port PC screen.

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption When Off

The AOC U3277PWQU has one of the higher power consumptions when off (0.5 Watts) amongst PC displays of this age. Across all the medium monitors that have been around for the last year the power consumptions when off range from 0.005W to 350W.

1 Other reason to consider the AOC U3277PWQU

LCD Display Type

The AOC U3277PWQU has an LCD display type which is better than most medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as it. Most PC monitors that have been on the market for a comparable time to it have an LED display type.

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might be worth looking at include the Acer S230HL[plb_2701269_price] (LED,LCD), the Viewsonic VX2476-SMHD[plb_3737629_price] (LED), or the LG 27MP58VQ-P[plb_3755214_price] (LED).
