AOC Q2963Pm full review
An ultra-wide display with a 2560px resolution, a stylish cabinet and good brightness consistency all over.
It’s time to go wide again with the second of the ultra- wide panels in this round up. Like the NEC model, this is 29in of LCD screen, with LED backlighting and a resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. But that’s where the similarity stops. The AOC is lighter at 6.9kg, arguably much more stylish with a gun-metal grey finish, and is shorter.
In fact, the Q2963 slides onto a short stand which has all the interfaces, power socket and speakers built into it. It means that the monitor is much lower on the desk than any of the others. It tilts up, but doesn’t rotate on the base.
There are interfaces for DisplayPort, dual-link DVI-D, MHL, HDMI and D-Sub VGA. The speakers take a 3W amplifier and overall power consumption is specified at a 65W maximum. The main power transformer sits on the floor separately. On the right are a set of stubby push buttons that are used to navigate the menu. The system is not the most natural to use.
