Is anyone brave enough to go try one or a few of these out? I like the size and the price, but the AOC brand name doesn't exactly instill confidence. But the specs are nice... 32" 4K 60hz VA panel... up until I saw this only the Wasabi Mango and other Korean monitors came close in price.

I'm not exactly certain I want to drop $800 for 2 (plus another $700 for a 1080TI) to upgrade from dual 27" 1440p ips... Or hmmm maybe I keep those just for work purpose and just one of these would be ok.

I do own and use a Q3277PQU which is another AMVA monitor from AOC. AOC as a brand is fine. The AMVA panel on the other hand has problems on mine. In some high contrast predominantly dark scenes it creates artifacts that look like a flicker to the eye (here is a video of a philips with the same panel that does the same ). Other than this problem (which isn't really an AOC fault since other brands using the same panel also have it) the monitor is well made. My theory is this is an inherent problem with the AMVA tech: gray to gray worst case can be high on it vs an IPS panel. All this said I did keep the monitor and use it as the office monitor (coding). For this it's a good monitor, if I'd waited a year I would have bought the one you posted since it's 4k. For gaming it may be a miss (if it exhibits the same problems as mine).
