Out of the box! Back light bleed!, for me its in the form of Batman's Logo xD!
Past gaming experience: i've never had a gaming monitor before, I was using a LG TV Flat screen 1080i my whole gaming and video editing career .:,D, but this week since then, this curved monitor from AOC has made my gaming and editing of any kind a breeze and far more then i have expected for a first time user of these 144Hz monitors.
As for the size and curve, i made a promising investment.
Minor bugs: Back light bleed shows more in dark scenes or black screens, but goes away when a small amount of bright light from scenes of movies or games comes along.
The screen will flicker upon light transitions in certain games or moves, Mostly in Games since light is more refined and consistent, or better meaning the monitor flickers when adjusting to lower light out-put from games which i think causes the flickers as it adjusts for lower lighting to give a better visual.
The body and frame of the monitor however is a new feel for me, just gotta not touch the screen and force the up and down tilt so much, handle it well, it may last longer for you .:b.
4 Stars for its durability and on board Settings for a light to mid gamer, and low cost.
last thing, less problems when used in a dim lit room or dim lights in the back of this thing.
Update)... It was my GPU that was causing the flickers when the change of day to night would happen... Faulty port, so i switched D-Port to one of my other ones and the flicker went away .:,D.
It's a gorgeous monitor all around. The only thing I have a slight problem with is jagged edges. Certain lines show so dominantly jagged and its hard to not notice. Other than that, the 144hz looks absolutely gorgeous, the movements are nice and crisp with minimal input lag. The monitor is the perfect size for up close gaming at your desk without causing eye strain.
Superb colour at 120 hz waiting for my new video card. I watch movies and TV shows on this and they look great! I also play Warcraft by Blizzard and it is the best it has ever looked to me. Good Buy So Far!
Monitor had a vertical shadow from right out of the box. I've tried all the basic trouble shooting: cables/drivers/reset etc. It seems to be an issue with the backlight itself and is very visible even on dark images . Otherwise it's a very nice monitor.
bought this after searching for awhile for something bigger. wanting to stay at 1080p this thing fit the bill great! i may not be a "competetive" gamer, but i enjoy gaming and ranked gaming. great monitor
Firstly it’s size was rather daunting on first use, changing from a 22” monitor, but got used to it real quick! The freesync works flawlessly, and the curve really enhances my immersion during gameplay.
Bought this monitor for strictly gaming purposes on my PlayStation, it did not disappoint. Great colour, refresh rate and response time. A noticeable difference in dealing with Lag from using my large screen tv.
