AOC CU34G3S 34-inch Curved Gaming Monitor Review: High Contrast, Colorful and Capable

For those who don’t want the extreme wraparound effect, there are plenty of gently curved monitors out there. That’s understandable, because a radius narrower than about 1300R can cause image distortion. But for hardcore gamers who want to replicate VR goggles without the bulky technology hanging over their heads, the 1000R ultra-wide screen does a great job of filling their peripheral vision and surrounding the player in a virtual environment.

AOC CU34G3S is one such monitor. It’s 34 inches diagonal and features a VA panel that delivers over 3,000:1 contrast. HDR and wide color gamut deliver punchy, realistic images. Plus, Adaptive-Sync and a 165Hz refresh rate boost gaming performance. The best part is the price. It’s only $430 at the time of writing this article. This is a great candidate to join the ranks of the best gaming monitors.
