What customers say about "Display"
AOC U2879VF 4K Monitor
  • The colors are vivid, the screen is big, the price is great.
  • Colors are very good and text is crisp. Aesthetically nice also.
  • Great value for money. Colors seem fine.
  • Good monitor, decent colors. I like this resolution and screen.
  • Uneven lighting. Under saturated colors.
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • I am a designer and require my monitor to be able to handle color effectively. This monitor is outstanding in low light conditions and renders text and graphics so crisply.
  • This monitor is very easy on my eyes and is very well defined with the picture quality.
  • The image on this monitor is super crisp. I use it for both work and gaming. Spreadsheets look great and games look awesome.
  • This is a great monitor - excellent brightness and very nice color reproduction.
  • Haven’t had enough time to really enjoy. I am having a hard time trying to get the colors right. Right now picture editing is difficult. My screen on my laptop and screen on the monitor are very different.

What customers say about "Features"
AOC U2879VF 4K Monitor
  • Looks great on the desk and the stand is a perfect size to slot a keyboard onto when not using.
  • Great screen, I love it a lot. Good features.
  • Use this to play 4K games. Many good features.
  • Great monitor. Fantastic picture. However, would just like to point out that it has no speakers.
  • Was disappointed to find out it has no mounting options.
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • Good value for the money. Great design and features. Stand could be a little stronger.
  • Love this thing. No speaker, it also tilts downwards a little bit and you can adjust it. Great picture however
  • Everything is great about this monitor. The only thing it is missing is adjusting its height
  • Great screen but doesn’t go to sleep when my iMac shuts off. Keeps power cycling. Need to manually turn off every time I go away from desk
  • Only slight negative I can say for some is the vesa mount is near top of monitor, so I had to move my mount on the wall from previous monitor height. In my case wasn't too much of issue for me.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
AOC U2879VF 4K Monitor
  • Worked well connected by DisplayPort. Good monitor.
  • The four connection protocols (VGA, Dual DVI, HDMI, DP1.4) all work perfectly.
  • Make sure to use a 4k capable cable such as HDMI 2 or DisplayPort.
  • Really, really happy with the monitor. Good and durable connect.
  • It only had 1 HDMI port, and 1 Display Port. Bad for me.
Samsung U28E590D UHD LED-Lit Monitor
  • Easy setup off my HP Laptop with an HDMI port. Beautiful picture that I have taken advantage of doing video publishing from my Drone Business.
  • Colors and brightness are good. Plug and play on NVidia with display port, virtually no setup. No dead pixels and nice, crisp image.
  • I had no problems using this with a amd R9 390p xfx running 4k at 60hz using display port.
  • Dual inputs, switching between sources via the manual control on the back is awkward, and the lack of any access to digital audio is a distinct disadvantage.
  • If you're using HDMI, use port #2, as that's the one that will give you 60hz. The other is at 30hz, which is slow enough that your mouse cursor seems to "skip frames" when moving it around.
