AOC has announced a new addition to its 90 Series aimed at professionals. The 27” U2790PQU comes with 4K resolution and a pixel density of 163 ppi,
The new display’s IPS panel and 10-bit colour depth produce 1.07 billion colours. With a 3-side frameless design, the monitor comes with future-proof technical specifications, including a height-adjustable ergonomic stand and blue light reducing features.
“Ultra HD, or simply 4K resolution is slowly but surely going to replace the current mainstream 1080p (Full HD) and 1440p (Quad HD) monitors,” said AOC. “The U2790PQU is a monitor that will be especially appreciated by content creators, video editors, digital artists, but also people working with excel sheets and other information dense applications. The extra-sharpness and vivid details thanks to the 4K resolution, together with the colour accuracy and 10-bit colour depth of the U2790PQU’s IPS panel are a perfect match for the kind of work done by professionals in these fields.”
All monitors in the AOC 90 Series come with a unique silver/gunmetal finish. The 27” panel size combined with the almost borderless design creates a large amount of screen estate, whilst still offering a compact feel and occupying a small amount of space on desks. It also enables seamless multi-monitor setups.
The ergonomic stand can be adjusted in height (by 130 mm), and can be swivelled (-45°/+45°) and tilted (-3.5°/+19.5°). For users who work with mostly vertical content, the monitor’s pivot mode also allows portrait orientation. Additionally, the U2790PQU employs Low Blue Light mode, which reduces high energy short wavelength blue light and therefore contributes to eye health.
Conforming to regulations such as EnergyStar, EPEAT Silver and TCO 6, the U2790PQU is also energy-efficient. Other specs include one HDMI 2.0 port, one HDMI 1.4 port and a DisplayPort 1.2, as well as a built-in 2-port USB 3.0 hub. To output audio, users can either use the two built-in 2W speakers or use the built-in headphones output.
The U2790PQU will be available in July 2019 at an MSRP of £299.
