An impressive and more importantly - affordable - UltraWide from AOC
. We've tested the AOC CU34G2X
for several weeks and can safely say that if you're looking for that immersive cinematic feel that you get from a 21:9 aspect ratio display then there's a lot to like here.
From 144Hz to a 1ms response time to a variable refresh rate and WQHD 1440p.
There’s one key area where the PC has deviated from the traditional TV. 4K is rare on the account of low response times and refresh rates being key. QHD or 1440p is the norm, and the arrival of the UltraWide has led to impressive immersion thanks to cinematic aspect ratios. Going from 16:9 to 21:9 adds more than you’d think, and the QHD resolution of 3440x1440 offers up a broader support for GPUs to hit the all important 60fps and higher.

In the past we’ve made no secret our love for the UltraWide – the immersion it brings from seeing that much more of the world is undeniable. Until now though the barrier for entry was often the price-point. And it’s this aspect, alongside impressive performance, where the AOC CU34G2X stands out. A sub $1000 AUD UltraWide (you can pick one up for less than $800) that not only hits the preferred 1440p QHD resolution but does so at 144 Hz with FreeSync and HDR.
