Description

We noticed an other oddity with the screen in that if you have adaptive-sync enabled in the OSD menu, you cannot change the aspect ratio control on the display (within the ‘extra’ menu), it’s locked on “wide” mode meaning that the console’s 16:9 input gets stretched horizontally. As those specs might suggest, this is a monitor that excels at gaming, with smooth, rich visuals – assuming you have a connected PC with enough oomph to power them.

Maximum and minimum brightness – the full range in which the backlight can be adjusted using the monitor’s brightness control. There was the 35″ ultrawide Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ all the way back in mid-2019 which had a 512-zone FALD backlight.Greyscale dE – this graph tracks the accuracy of each greyscale shade measured from 0 (black) to 100 (white). The storage humidity shows the lower and upper humidity limit, which ensures safe storage of the display. The most widely used panels are those with 6, 8, and 10 bits for each of the RGB components of the pixel. The horizontal scan rate/frequency shows the number of horizontal lines, displayed by the monitor per second, when it is plugged to a digital source. Contrast ratio took a small hit in this mode down to 904:1 which was reasonable for an IPS-type panel.

The commentary in each section will provide more information if a blur reduction mode is available and how it operates. The spectral distribution and blue peak wavelength remain unchanged, but the colour temp is changed with each mode, reducing the blue peak a bit and making the image a bit warmer and more yellow in practice. In general, though, it's all rather angular and plastic – the thick bottom bezel doesn't look the greatest, but the bezels on the other three sides are pleasingly thin. That’s a massive shame as otherwise it could have been very useful, and also very accurate for sRGB content and work.

However, for a lot of normal desktop uses actually you want to work with a smaller SDR / sRGB colour space and that can be more difficult on a wide gamut screen. We tested the screen with an Xbox Series X and found that the screen would accept input resolutions of 4K (despite not being a 4K res screen), 1080p and 720p only. We're not particularly enamoured by the design or by the on-screen menu system, but these don't take too much away from an otherwise great device – especially if you're after a flatscreen monitor, not a curved one. but high end HDR capabilities have largely been limited and focused on the 16:9 aspect ratio models, with 27″ and 32″ models offering 4K resolutions and high-end backlights.

In this AOC Agon Pro AG344UXM review we'll tell you whether or not the monitor is as good as its specs would suggest. There are still challenges on very specific content like star fields for instance, or scenes with very small bright areas, but that’s going to be hard for any FALD screen to handle and you really need something like OLED to avoid all halos. The OSD control and software can be a bit sluggish and cumbersome in places though, especially when you are within certain settings. If you push up to the maximum strong mode at 170Hz you start to see a small amount of pale haloing creep in but it’s quite slight at this max refresh rate.Like other AOC screens we’ve tested in recent time, there are 4 overdrive modes available in the OSD menu – off, weak, medium and strong. We have no idea why this is operating this way, it’s strange, but thankfully this shouldn’t cause any issues in real use and we certainly didn’t experience any problems. For some odd reason the actual 1440p resolution mode was not offered on the console, despite this being the most appropriate option for this display without needing to do any interpolation or scaling. If you are more commonly running in the 100 – 170Hz range then you could push to the medium mode for some small gains in responsiveness and motion clarity, and in that upper refresh rate range you shouldn’t see any real issues with overshoot.

There are different types of matte and glossy coatings, each of which has its own advantages and drawbacks. GtG stands for Gray-To-Gray and represents how long it takes for one pixel to change between one gray level to the next. Beneath the gamma graph we include the average overall gamma achieved along with the average for dark shades (0 – 50) and for lighter shades (50 – 100). With this AOC 34" gaming monitor (AG344UXM) you'll be able to illuminate your gaming setup in the most unique way.Flat format may be better for graphical work, or when using content with a lot of straight lines like spreadsheets for instance, so you will have to figure out which you prefer. These have included FALD (Full Array Local Dimming) backlights and later, Mini LED backlights with increasing numbers of smaller dimming zones for better performance and content control. On the Xbox Series X, only the 4K mode would allow you to turn on HDR, which is something you’d almost certainly want to take advantage of on this display, given it’s high performing HDR Mini LED backlight – discussed more a bit later.
