AOC have recently announced the launch of their new U2790PQU display, a 27″ sized model with 4K resolution aimed at professionals and prosumers. A silver/gunmetal colour finish with 3 side borderless design make this model stand out visually, while the panel can offer specs including 10-bit colour depth, along with features like low blue light filters and a fully adjustable stand.
The U2790PQU offers a 27″ sized, 3840 x 2160 resolution (“4K”), IPS technology panel. There is a 5ms G2G response time, 60Hz refresh rate, 1000:1 contrast ratio., 350 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles and 1.07b colour depth. Wide colour gamut is mentioned in the features part of the AOC website, although no spec is provided so it’s unclear what is offered here.
All monitors of the AOC 90 Series come with a unique silver/gunmetal finish, differentiating themselves from the common black or grey dominated displays, and the U2790PQU continues this fashion. The 27” (68.6 cm) panel size combined with the almost borderless design creates a large amount of screen estate, whilst still offering a compact feel and occupying a small amount of space on desks. It also enables seamless multi-monitor setups which continually prove to be a productivity asset in modern workspaces.
The ergonomic stand can be adjusted in height (by 130 mm), and can be swiveled (-45°/+45°) and tilted (-3.5°/+19.5°) as well. For users who work with mostly vertical content, the monitor’s pivot mode also allows portrait orientation. Additionally, the U2790PQU employs Low Blue Light mode, which reduces high energy short wavelength blue light and therefore contributes to eye health.
Conforming to regulations such as EnergyStar, EPEAT Silver and TCO 6, the U2790PQU is also a modern, energy-efficient monitor suited for the office of the future.
Users have multiple options to connect the U2790PQU to display sources, thanks to one HDMI 2.0 port, one HDMI 1.4 port and a DisplayPort 1.2, as well as enjoy the flexibility of the built-in 2-port USB 3.0 hub. To output audio as well, users can either use the two built-in 2W speakers or use the built-in headphones output.
The U2790PQU will be available in July 2019 at an MSRP of £299.
