AGON AG352UCG - 35 inch 1440p 100hz VA G-sync ultrawide - Page 50

post #491 of 574
I'm liking it so far. (My other monitor is a TN OG Rog Swift so the colors aren't washed out at all compared to what I am used to.)

First monitor arrived from Amazon on Monday and I shipped it back today due to about 20 stuck pixels. Second one (Microcenter) has no dead pixels and at the distance I sit there isn't any noticeable color shift. Still impressed that the Maxwell Titan can push pixels this hard.

Note on Microcenter: Give them a call if it is listed as out of stock. My local one had no listed stock online but had received 6 today.

Might not be sold yet at that store. I have 5 around me and only 2 of them have stock. The ones that do have plenty.
I think it is crazy there website won't pull from store inventory... I want one badly but of course there is none within 2hrs of me and the one that is within 3 hrs doesn't carry them

Has anyone bought this and owned the OMEN x35 also? I have the OMEN and from what I have read they are the same panel and differences are just design, for the price difference I don't care about the looks that much just wanting to see if it is a smart idea to jump to this one instead

I think the omen is also curved a bit more & has better contrast. Not much tho.

In general, they seem pretty similar. I'd go for the cheaper if perf/price is what you care about.
post #495 of 574
For $850, it's a great price. There are 2 in stock at my local microcenter which makes it quite tempting. If I didn't have a refurbished X34 on the way, I would've probably caved and bought it.

What is making hold back from buying either monitor atm is about HDR. Is HDR a real difference maker in color/lighting?

Ordered from microcenter over the phone today as my credit card kept not working. Cant wait to get it. Gonna replace a 2 year old 60hz samsung 34" ultrawide.

The 3 year warranty it comes with helped seal the decision vs the 90 day refurb acer.

only for HDR content. Not many games support it. In fact, most don't. I know of Mass effect Andromeda, but that's all I know about, lol.

HDR will be nice to have in 2020, I guess.

This is an update I posted in the HP omen thread
Quote:
Well wanna give my last post in this thread, I decided to take me a nice 3hr drive to a micro center and pick me up a AOC AGON. For the price difference in the monitors and the claim of same panel I thought it was def worth checking out. MicroCenter $849.99 vs HP OMEN X35 $1299 + Taxes on both. If the price had been within $100-200 I prolly wouldn't have mess with it but for the price difference I wanted to give it a try.

APPEARANCE: Lets start with the AOC def has the unfortunate gamer look to it, which to be fair most of the silly look is behind the monitor and lets face it how many of us actually see the back I know with some desk setups u do but mine does not. The AOC does have a shiny gloss black bezel around it and a bright silver base. The base isn't as bad as the X34 or PG348Q but it is no OMEN, the OMEN had one of the best stands in just the aspect that it put the monitor the furthest from the user and took the least amount of desk space up. The bottom bezel LEDS can be chosen between 3 different colors NO RGB just and can be completely turned off. The AOC has its model number on the top right of the bezel, which I feel could have been left off.

FUNCTION: The stand on the AOC has insane lift which is great and is also very stable on the desk. It has a simple one user button, which works well very tactile and easy to use once you figure out which way to click to do certain things. The connections on the back of the monitor are easy to get too and the stand allows for easy wire management. The bezel on the AOC does make the monitor feel a little bigger. The cables that come with the HP omen are nice I liked the red DP cable but for some people they don't like colored cable so this is just a preference thing.

PANEL: I can not tell a difference between the panels, I used the same TFTcenteral settings and omen X35 ICC Profile and the panels looked the same to me. I had read that the curvature was difference but both show a 1800R curve and from my eye balls looks to be the same. Neither the OMEN or AOC had any panel issues (knock on wood....... thats what she said lol) No dead pixels, as I stated not sure I can say much more

I wish I would have took pictures of them side by side, wife has already packed the OMEN up and got it ready to go back. (it arrived with a bent stand or so I think there is 3/4" difference in one of sides it was leaning and the desk is level, I was going to over look due to eventually it going on a stand) I have decided to keep the AOC all in all considered I don't think the appearance difference justifies the base $450 difference in price and HP support has been extremely lacking.

A weird thing is this AOC flicker is almost none existent, I would only get flicker in COD IW menu while waiting on a match and when they were both hooked up the HP flicker was extremely noticeable while the AOC I couldn't notice any. I am going to keep track and make sure I don't before saying for sure, anyone whos played the crappy COD IW game will know the menu does change a little bit of color during certain menu changes. I hope this helps someone maybe on the verge.

Thanks for review.
You don't feel thick bezel is ugly? no ghosting in gaming? no bad color banding?
