AOC has announced the Q3279VWFD8, a sibling to the 31.5” Q3279VWF, a superb allrounder from the well-received 79 series, which debuted last autumn and received appraisal for its price/performance ratio. The monitor, Q3279VWFD8 uses a different panel type - IPS - rather than the VA panel used in its older brother and boasts a wider colour gamut for increased colour accuracy and therefore more vivid, natural and eye-catching imagery.
The Q3279VWFD8’s 31.5” IPS panel offers a highly detailed QHD resolution (2560x1440 pixels), 5ms GtG response time, AMD FreeSync support and 75Hz refresh rate. Aimed at particularly budget conscious home power users, internet cafés and everyone who is after jaw-dropping specs without breaking the bank are going to be well-served with the Q3279VWFD8.
The Q3279VWFD8 boasts a huge 31.5” IPS panel and QHD (2560x1440 pixels) resolution, resulting in fine details, a lot of screen real estate for increased productivity, and a comfortable pixel density for daily usage.
While the panel and its specifications speak for itself, the exterior design of this monitor is also outstanding: the glossy black finish of its narrow bezels, stand and rear cover creates a pleasing contrast with its sturdy, weighty base in silver finish.
Thanks to the wide viewing angles of 178/178° achieved by its IPS panel, friends & families sitting together are going to enjoy the vivid imagery at the same time without experiencing a colour shift.
The 8-bit+FRC panel delivering 1.07bi crisp colours and offers 88% coverage of the NTSC colour gamut help reproduce much more vivid colours including vibrant reds, deep blues, and lush greens with a high, 200:1 contrast ratio.
The QHD (2560x1440 pixels) resolution of the Q3279VWFD8 enables not only detailed photos and videos, but also games. The blend of 75Hz refresh rate, 5ms GtG, and AMD FreeSync support produces a fast, tear-free gameplay experience and without any additional input lag or stutter.
The Q3279VWFD8 offers a wide range of connectivity, including legacy sources such as VGA and DVI as well as HDMI an DisplayPort, therefore is capable of connecting various game consoles, PCs, laptops, set-top boxes and many more. A 3.5mm jack connector is foreseen to connect headphones or an external speakerset.
AOC’s Clear Vision technology improves clarity and vividness when viewing Standard Definition (SD) content. AOC’s Flicker-Free technology also eliminates flicker by using Direct Current (DC) for regulating brightness instead of Pulse Width Modulation (PWC) and reduces eye-fatigue when using the monitor in long hours.
The 31.5” Q3279VWFD8 will be available from July 2018 with an MSRP of £219.
