Workmanship and design
The components of the monitor are mostly made of plastic. This gives a high-quality appearance, is stable and feels valuable. On the back of the monitor there are red accents in the form of the distinctive and AOC-typical lines. This design also extends to the front, which tends to be more visible, by incorporating red elements at the bottom edge and base. The monitor is almost rimless – this makes for a much more pleasant multi-monitor setup and is also a huge plus visually.
The assembly of the monitor could not have been easier. The base is screwed into the support leg with a single screw, and the panel can be simply hung into the support leg and locked in place. There is nothing to complain about in terms of assembly or workmanship – the monitor doesn’t wobble, stands sturdily on the table and is assembled in a few easy steps. AOC remains true to its line – a high-quality gaming look that is not overloaded by RGB and yet still attracts attention on the desk.
