How does the idea of a big, affordable workhorse IPS monitor sound? AOC is offering exactly that with its Q2963PQ display.
The Q2963PQ is a 29" ultrawide monitor with a 2560x1080 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The IPS panel features a five-millisecond response time and a maximum brigthness of 300 cd/m². Input connectivity is offered by DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, and VGA connectors.
This monitor's stand only offers tilt adjustment, but users can improve on that by making use of the 100-mm VESA mount. A pair of 3W speakers and HDMI MHL support round out the feature set.
While the Q2963PQ's spec sheet may be a bit spartan, the feature list is easier to swallow when we consider this monitor is selling for a mere $340. That's a pretty good deal for a big chunk of display. AOC offers three years of warranty coverage, too.
