One of the best looking monitors I've seen
on April 19, 2016
I really wanted to like this monitor but the problem it has is just not worth the trouble. When I first unboxed this monitor and plugged it in, there was a popping noise followed by a black screen for a few second. I thought it was a fluke or something and ignored it. Then there was the horizontal lines flickering every few minutes. Its been 3 days since I've received this monitor and it has only gotten worst. Now I can't even go longer than a few seconds before the screen pops and goes blank and the nonstop flickering.
This is an amazing professional looking monitor but until AOC can fix the flickering and popping problems, it's just not worth it to get this monitor. Overall a solid monitor with a great stand that looks and performs great except for slight backlight bleed.
UPDATE: I bought a new surge protector, changed the displayport cable, and plugged it into a differnt wall socket. The popping issues and screen flickering are now gone.
