Saw that. Amazon is $50 more plus tax though.

What do you guys think about the blb on this one?

Can I do better than this?


This is my second panel, (first one had a dead pixel) and I really don't feel like driving to Microcenter for a third time to get a panel with more issues.

The pic not the best but I would say if it doesn't bother you I wouldn't worry about it. Use it for a day or so and see if it actually bothers u during your task and gaming.

German test is up since yesterday. Big monitor testing side "Prad" made a 10 side test. Some quotations (nothing about the gsync flickering...)

60 Hz, Overdrive medium
Quote:
With medium overdrive, the switching times of the black-and-white change slow down to 11.8 ms. The fastest gray switching gains 4.8 ms at speed and the average of our 15 measuring points is more than twice as fast at 11.1 ms. But the much more important value, which describes the change between two mixing colors, lags behind strongly and takes 16 ms. This is longer than the others. The brightness trend already shows slight overshoots here, which is not a good sign.

60 Hz Overdrive max
Quote:
When setting the maximum overdrive, the display shows more sporty and completes the black-and-white change in 9 ms. The gray change is measured with fast 2.6 ms, and the mean value of our 15 measuring points also shows a decent result at 5.9 ms. All this is useless, but unfortunately little, since otherwise a colorful picture is displayed. Here the AOC again shows an under-average result with only 10 ms with the CtC (color to color switch) value for a gaming monitor.

Although the average value for ascent / fall with 3 ms is extremely fast, the delay with 25.6 ms is beyond good and evil and makes it uninteresting for first-person shooter. In order to surpass everything, the overshoot still radiate our brightness pattern and have a strong influence on the picture quality.

100 Hz Overdrive medium
Quote:
With a medium overdrive, the black-and-white change is measured with 8.6 ms and gains some speed. The fastest gray change in 2.6 ms is done quickly and the average value of our 15 measuring points can also be seen with 6.4 ms. Here, too, only an under-average time with the CtC (color to color switch) value is measured with 9.2 ms. Even with medium overdrive, there are already significant overshoot to complain.

100 Hz Overdrive max
Quote:
With the maximum overdrive settings, the switching times can be shortened again. The black-and-white change is measured with 8.4 ms and the fastest gray change with very fast 1.6 ms. The average value of our 15 measuring points is only 4.5 ms. The CtC (color to color switch) value now remains within the frame and is measured with an acceptable 5.8 ms. However, what remains unclear are the strong overshoot, which once again overshadow our graphics. How this is reflected in the picture is to be read in the section "Subjective Assessment".

Latence
Quote:
The latency is an important value for players, we determine it as the sum of the signal delay time and half the average picture change time. Although a peak value of 2.3 ms is achieved at half the average picture change time, the time of the signal delay is way too long at 25.6 ms. With a total latency of 27.9 ms, the AOC AG352UCG is not competitive and therefore disqualifies itself for fast first-person shooters, where every millisecond is important


I really dont wanna talk this monitor bad because I'm switching since the last month between the HP and this one (I know same panel) and now there is a test which confirms the overshoot and the other problems very clear. Just wanted to let you guys know. Here is the full review (translated). 5-6 sides are about the technology.

hmm interesting would like to see a little more testing from more sources like this. Comparing this to the XB271HU, X34, and the PG348Q I can say I don't feel this one is any difference. The XB271HU did feel the best I regret ever going UW since owning that monitor.

I was just about to place an order for this monitor, but since it is a sizeable chunk of cash to lay on the table I have just consumed this entire thread + every other review and resource I could find on this monitor.

Basically I have come to the end of all that has been written and I'm feeling quite glad that I didn't just take the word of the professional reviews but got some user experience too. At the same time, I'm kind of annoyed because now I am back on the hunt!

The most disturbing thing is, after 3 months of research trying to find a mate for my watercooled 1080ti I have come to the conclusion that if you want an ultrawide, all you can really do is choose which particular set of compromises you are willing to accept!

I really really want an ultrawide, but I also like a very high framerate in my games (FPS like BF1, BF4, Farcry, Doom, Quake Champions when it is out and the occasional match of Quakelive when I'm bored!)

I would also like colours to really impress me and make me feel like the screen was worth the sizeable chunk of cash I'm dropping on it. This is the main reason I am leaning away from the AG352UCG, moreso than the black crush and slight flicker that some people have demonstrated whilst using G-Sync. I'm also somewhat concerned about the limitation of 100hz when using G-sync but the biggest thing is the dull colours + washout and abnormalities when your head isn't dead centre.


I feel the best mix of compromises in the current ultrawide lineup comes with the Asus MX34VQ but obviously this is a freesync monitor, and I have grown tired of waiting for Vega and already made the plunge into G-sync requiring land.

Others that I have considered are:

-Acer Predator Z35 (2056x1080 low resolution = high framerates but this screen suffers very badly from ghosting and black crush, and I'm not convinced that it won't look pixelated stretched over 35".
-Acer Predator x34 (Major backlight bleed and QC issues mean no guarantees)
-AOC AGON AG352QCX (2056x1080 low resolution = high framerates but suffers from same problems as the Z35 + it is freesynch)


Right now I am at a total loss, but I need to make a decision fairly quickly if I want to get my gear here in time for my holidays.

Is the AG352UCG really that bad?? Is the colour + image quality of the Z35 really going to annoy me coming from an old BENQ 24" 60hz panel?

My other option seems to be: go with the Acer Predator XB271HU for now which doesn't seem to suffer any of the above compromises, knowing that I may not really feel like the thousands of dollars I've just spent on this rig feels worth it...I want that ultrawide!

I could always sell it down the track when 144hz IPS panels are a thing.


I welcome any thoughts that could help me out, and thanks for reading this far.

I am in exactly the same boat. Keep jostling between the Z35, X34, PG348Q and AG352UCG. I think I'm going to try my luck with the AG352UCG, but am very tempted to spend the extra 200 GPB on the PG348Q. I am honestly waiting for a price drop on either the X34 or PG348Q... but it's just not coming. The Z35 is also tempting me at two thirds of the price of the big boys... but I'm seriously worried about the low pixel count.

I'm ready to drop a decent amount of coin on a good quality monitor, but the PG348Q is just a step too far for me. It's not that I can't afford it, I just dont' think it is reasonable.

Why don't you get the AG352UCG and return it if it does not meet expectations? I would do that, but it is still pre-order on Amazon UK.
