So far 2013 is shaping up to be a great year for HD displays. A growing number of smartphones and tablets are shipping with 1080p or higher-resolution displays. And we’re starting to see Windows laptops following suit, with some models featuring screen resolutions as high as 3200 x 1800 pixels.
But what about desktop monitors? While higher-than-1080p screens have been available for a while, they tend to be crazy expensive.
Now AOC is offering a model that’s a bit closer to affordable. the AOC q2963Pm is a 29 inch, wide-screen IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. It’s kind of like having two side-by-side monitors, except it’s just one screen.
And it sells for $400, which makes it about the price of 2 monitors, but much cheaper than many other devices in its class.
