It seems quantum-dot monitors are starting to be a thing. We reported on Philips' 276E6ADSS a while back, and now AOC is looking to get in on the action with the stateside release of its first quantum-dot display.
AOC didn't mention the model name in its PR, but we believe this model to be the I2771F9, which was announced last year. The model name may not be fancy, but the display has some enticing specifications. The monitor measures 27" across its diagonal, and has a resolution of 1920x1080.
While the resolution may seem a little low, the color gamut should make up for it. AOC says the panel covers 98% of the Adobe RGB color space, with a delta-E of under three across the board. Unsurprisingly, AOC mentions photography work as a use case for the new model. Connectivity options include VGA, DVI, and HDMI ports.
AOC is using QD Vision's Color IQ technology, which purportedly offers "50% better color performance than a typical monitor." QD Vision says that its quantum-dot technology is superior to all competing solutions, while having a "much lower overall cost." AOC offered no pricing information for its display, but as a point of reference, the similarly-specced Philips 276E6ADSS is currently going for $270. The company says the monitor should be available immediately.
