The BenQ XR3501 was the first monitor to offer the rather unconventional combination of steeply curved 35” VA panel, 144Hz refresh rate and 2560 x 1080 resolution. It was and still remains quite a controversial combination given the much higher pixel density offered by many displays now on the market. It was also criticised for its high price and lack of any sort of variable refresh rate technology. The Acer Z35 addressed some of these criticisms with the inclusion of Nvidia G-SYNC. It also added support for up to 200Hz, although that doesn’t come without a negative impact on image quality. The AOC C3583FQ combines this 35” VA panel with Adaptive-Sync (and hence support for AMD FreeSync), whilst also supporting up to 160Hz and coming in at a significantly lower price than the aforementioned competing models. We put this monitor through our usual set of tests to see how it all plays out in practice.
