GadgetGuy’ take – This is a monster monitor that is good for business use as well
This solves a lot of existing USB-C dock issue that only support one monitor – now you can get the real estate you need off one cable. Alternatively, DisplayPort will get you the best image for gaming.
In the old language this is 4 feet of sheer immersiveness and secretly uses a Samsung panel, so there has been no compromise on quality.
We used to review a lot of AOC monitors but have not in recent years. We always found them to be good gear.
