Pros and cons

According to our monitor expert
  • Thanks to the 1 ms response time and 144Hz refresh rate, you'll experience extremely smooth images.
  • With an ultrawide monitor, you can see more of the playing field if the game supports this.
  • The 3440x1440 resolution ensures sharp images during gameplay.
  • This monitor doesn't have integrated speakers to play the sound of your games.
  • The AOC CU34G2X/BK doesn't have an IPS panel, so colors are more blurry with a large viewing angle.

    Great screen for a great price

    Kevin Oudhuis | 14 July 2020 | In this version: AOC CU34G2X/BK | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Very good black values (sometimes almost looks like Oled)
    • Beautiful and accurate colors, test report: Delta E 0.73 (better than my IPS)
    • g-sync compatible works fine in combination with 1080 gtx
    • G-MENU software is ideal (instead of monitor buttons)
    • Smooth gaming experience (run Apex at ~80-100 fps, beautiful)
    • Overdrive can be used maximum on 'medium' (so 1ms is not achieved)
    • Viewing angles are good for a VA panel, but not perfect
    • Frame counter you have to turn on again and again

    Very good price for a monitor with these specs (1440p, 144hz, ultrawide, 1ms). Screen has a nice design, subtle red decoration. Can be used as a game monitor, but wouldn't look out of place in my (home) office. Delivered well packaged including cables and test report. This gave my unit an sRGB DELTA E of 0.73 (>2 is good, so this is almost perfect). Luminance uniformity as well (only one of the 25 measuring points (top right) at 101%. Others all 100%. Checked out some test screens myself. Colors nice and uniform, very slight deviation at the edges, but you can't escape that with this format of VA panels due to viewing angle. Black, gray and white screens show no deviations / color difference. I switched from an IPS panel so was a bit hesitant about colors of VA panel. But this VA panel is much more accurate and nicer than my IPS monitor. In addition, much deeper black values what really stands out. Has a nice curve. Only drawback is that the 'overdrive' can only be used effectively to medium. You will not get the 1ms. However, this monitor also delivers great game performance on medium. Play a lot of Apex. I run this at ~80 to ~100 fps in combination with 1080 gtx with g-sync (compatible). Plays wonderfully smooth. Ultrawide in combination with 34' is just great. I set my 'User RGB' to R35, G36, B50 for such a neutral possible look (no green, b lukewarm or warm haze). Then 'GameColor' on 11 (+1) for just that little bit of extra pop of the colors. Very satisfied.

    Great screen, competitive price

    Jeroen Haesendonckx | 24 April 2020 | In this version: AOC CU34G2X/BK | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • High resolution and refresh rate
    • Beautiful, understated design
    • Good contrast
    • Great immersion in games
    • Freesync, but compatible with Nvidia cards
    • Control buttons could be better

    The first reasonably priced 34” monitor with a high refresh rate and a resolution of 3440 x 1440, this makes for an immersive gaming experience, although I will be ordering another graphics card to be able to play at this resolution in newer titles as well. The screen is also suitable for surfing the internet, keep in mind the 21:9 aspect ratio, you can display a lot more in width, but less in height, needs to be adjusted in the beginning, I'm used to it by now . Compromises have been made to keep the price reasonable, but I am impressed with the result and happy with my purchase.

    Good screen, bad foot.

    Bert Demeulemeester | 4 May 2020 | In this version: AOC CU34G2X/BK | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Good image quality/Deep black levels
    • gigantic work surface
    • high refresh rate
    • adjustable in height
    • price quality
    • slight darkening on edges
    • pedestal

    Everything I expected from the image quality, huge surface and a completely new experience in work environments and games. Not a single dead pixel found. But a slight darkening on the edges. Still, given its price, nothing to match and a very positive experience.
    However, the pedestal that has to be attached to the stand with a screw was disastrous, screw thread completely broken and had a lot of headaches. I don't think this is representative of what most of their experience with this monitor will be, but an unfortunate manufacturing flaw on my device.

    Top screen
    • Cheapest 1440p 144hz display on the market
    • Nice VA panel
    • No built-in speakers

    Working on this size screen is great, but the gaming is what you have to buy this for. The immersion is many times greater thanks to the extra screen you have. And for what you get, this price is a real bargain.

    Great screen for a good price
    • Value for money
    • Super quiet and fast image
    • Design
    • Connection options

    No real negatives, but a lot of positives. Lots of options, very high quality. I think 'Immersive' is the right word.

    Great ultra-wide monitor for this price!
    • Value for money
    • Ultra wide (uses QHD for this)
    • Excellent color rendering for a VA panel
    • Looks good
    • Narrow Bezels
    • OSD menu is very difficult to operate
    • Settings are not saved when you restart the monitor
    • VA smearing, especially with black display

    Before this I had a QHD 144 Hz IPS panel from Asus, but unfortunately it broke after three years. I wanted a high refresh IPS panel again, but ultra wide. I think it's too expensive, then you're around 900 euros. This panel caught my eye. Great panel for this price. Disadvantages do not outweigh the advantages and price/quality of the monitor!

    Fantastic display in this price range
    • Ultrawide and high resolution (1440p) very nice for gaming if you have the graphics card for it.
    • The included tripod can be adjusted in height and you can rotate the screen
    • The high refresh rate (144Hz) is highly recommended on an ultrawide qhd monitor
