The ‘4K’ UHD resolution offers a lot of benefits for both work and play, pairing particularly well with a ~32″ screen size. The AOC U32E2N offers this combination, with a VA (Vertical Alignment) panel and home-office appearance. The bottom bezel is moderately thick matte plastic with a brushed texture. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, including a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen and a thin hard plastic outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by buttons towards the right side of the bottom bezel, facing forwards.
A 31.5″ VA panel is used, which based on the specifications and bezel design we believe to be a Samsung SVA (‘Super’ Vertical Alignment) part. This has a 3840 x 2160 (‘4K’ UHD) resolution, adopts a light matte anti-glare screen surface and offers a 60Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-Sync is supported, including AMD FreeSync (VRR range TBC). A 2500:1 static contrast ratio is specified alongside 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles. True 8-bit colour is supported, whilst a flicker-free WLED backlight is used offering 104% sRGB colour space coverage (standard gamut) and 350 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are also included to promote a more relaxing viewing experience. A 4ms grey to grey response time is specified, but as usual you shouldn’t pay too much attention to this figure – especially given the panel type used. The included stand is tilt-only, but 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included for alternative mounting. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), DP 1.2a, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 2 x 3W speakers are also included.
Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed with an MSRP of £349 in the UK.
