Make an impression with 3D depth on a vast screen space

The prospect of 3D on a 27in IPS panel at an affordable price seems like a monitor made in heaven. The d2757Ph offers a standard 2D IPS display, but adds two dedicated 3D modes and a 2D-to-3D conversion mode for turning your regular display into 3D. The former is for 3D movies and games, the latter for transforming 2D photos or movies into a front-back kind of 3D. With genuine 3D, the content will appear to burst out of the screen; with 2D to 3D conversion, the effect appears to go back into the screen.

The monitor gets off to a good start with aesthetics, a brushed metal panel houses touch-sensitive controls. AOC describes the d2757Ph as borderless, but that isn’t quite true. The display finishes about 1cm from the edge of the screen and then there’s a 2mm plastic bevel around that. Below the display is a brushed metal panel, which sits on a stand with restricted vertical movement. There are two HDMI and one analogue D-Sub ports, a headphone socket and an audio-in jack for the underwhelming built-in speakers.

The monitor’s IPS technology means excellent viewing angles, with no color shifts or variations at all. The brightness rating of 250cdm2 means it can be used in a wide range of environments.

With 27in, you get a lot of screen real-estate, but the resolution is a standard HD of 1,920 x 1,080.

The contrast ratio is 20,000,000:1 using dynamic contrast ratio, making for plenty of impact. In our tests, the standard 1,000:1 contrast ratio was good enough when combined with the IPS display to give bright and vivid colors. There’s clear definition in the highlights, though less in shadowed areas.

Build-quality is a concern. There’s definite light leak from the left and bottom-left side of the panel. This makes solid colors look slightly lighter on the left side of the screen. There’s also minor shadowing in the corners when looking at a pure white display. On the plus side, the refresh rate of 5ms is fast enough to make sure there’s no blurring or tracing.

The d2757Ph comes with one pair of passive 3D glasses and a pair of clip-ons. The 2D to 3D conversion is what the buying decision for this monitor stands or falls on, and viewing photos in 3D really increases their impact, though you have to be sat straight on to the monitor as any sideways movement produces ghosting. The 3D effect works better on still images.

Buying Advice

The big question here is whether you want the 3D effect. If you do, then this is a compelling way of creating more depth to images and making more of an impact. The huge 27in screen is generally excellent, aside from the build-quality issue mentioned. The price is also very affordable, making this a real alternative to a standard 2D-only display.
