   No matter which large electronics chain you visit 4k will be there to welcome you and although i have to admit that there are some very impressive 4k solutions out there (for example have you seen the curved Samsung UE65HU8500?) most of them are nowhere close to what they should be and this really isn't something new since we had the same exact thing happen with Full HD products during the first 2-3 years. Personally i think that for most usages 1080p is still more than enough especially since 4k content isn't widely available as we speak but with the U3477PQU AOC made me realize that there are other valid choices between 1080p and 2160p. Certainly an aspect ratio of 21:9 is not for everyone out there but i really recommend it for people who like watching Full HD movies (or even 4k) and why not even play games since aside the extra field of view which can help a lot in certain games during our tests we only noticed very slight input lag and even that was not very easy to spot. Color reproduction was also excellent still we did feel that the panel could do better with black although that's nothing new when it comes to IPS panels so it's not something isolated in the U3477PQU.


   A 34 inch wide screen ultra-high resolution monitor is not something anyone expects to come cheap not even us (not when there are 2-3 such models currently in the market) but the current price tag of USD1004.16 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and 865Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk) although in a way justified still it's going to disappoint many potential buyers. Of course we don't expect AOC to drop it significantly but considering that this is not a 4k screen we do hope they will as much as they can to boost sales because quite honestly this is an excellent LCD screen one which we'd really use for ourselves and that's why it gets our Platinum Award.
