Bigger might not always be better, but it's hard to say no to a giant display. Users who require a massive amount of real estate on top of their desks might want to take a look at AOC's latest mammoth monitor, the C4008VU8. This 40" curved display comes with professional credentials and a reasonable price tag.
The C4008VU8 has a 10-bit VA panel with an 1800R curvature. Most users prefer their large panels to be paired with high resolutions, as pixel density tends to suffer otherwise. They'll be happy to know that AOC opted for a 3840x2160 resolution for this display. The screen refreshes at 60 Hz and has a 5ms response time. Additionally, the C4008VU8's color reproduction should cover 85% of the NTSC gamut. Users with complementary hardware should have a reasonable expectation of getting professional-quality images and video from the monitor.
AOC added a wide range of inputs to the C4008VU8, including one VGA port, one HDMI 1.4 and two HDMI 2.0 ports, and two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors. There's also a four-port USB 3.0 hub with one fast-charging port.
Interested United States buyers don't need to wait for some unnamed date in the future to grab one of these displays. The C4008VU8 is already available on Newegg for roughly $850.
