The “AG352QCX” monitor from AOC promises a lot. In the 21:9 format with a 35 inch diagonal, the slightly curved screen looks huge at first. In addition, there is a rapid frequency of 200 Hz. The AOC monitor thus belongs to the trend towards ever higher frequencies.
According to the manufacturer, the screen is primarily aimed at gamers. Of course we appreciated this main purpose in our test – but a gaming screen in 21:9 format can also be used to work in word workmanship programs or spreadsheets. I personally only use this format both at work and at home.
We expect from a gaming monitor in this format above all an excellent resolution, an exact representation of the contents adapted to the respective format as well as sufficient speed for fast games with fast image or position changes.

Design and workmanship
The screen looks impressive and takes up some space. The 21:9 format looks unfamiliar at first if you’re used to 16:9, but it’s extremely practical. The elongated screen is overall satisfactorily finished. The plastic cover clouds the otherwise positive image of the monitor and leads to a rather average evaluation of the exterior.
It also takes getting used to the rather large power supply unit that is needed during operation to supply the screen with power.
Settings are made in a quite extensive menu which can be called up and operated via a control cross located under the screen. A wired remote control is also available. With a weight of twelve kilograms, the screen is exceptionally heavy. Due to its format, however, it also needs the weight for stability.
The design of the monitor is gamingtypical. The impressive 35 inch screen diagonal already makes the monitor stand out. Backlighting is also typical of AOC gaming monitors. So there are no criticisms to be found with regard to the design.
Due to the carrying handle and the foldable headset holder, the monitor is especially suitable for gamers and can also be taken along despite its weight.
