8 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other PC displays that were launched around the same time as the u3477, the AOC u3477 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other LCD screens which also have a built-in speaker to this LCD screen and we think the BDM4065UC/75, or the 298P4 both from Philips or the iiyama XB2776QS which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The AOC u3477 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other PC monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the u3477 are also not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The AOC u3477 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the u3477 also do not have an integrated card reader.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with an integrated card reader and we think the UP2414Q ($699.93), or the U3014 ($1,448.70) both from DELL or the Benq BL3201 ($791.49) is also worth considering.

Most PC monitors of this age and type have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the AOC u3477 which has two USB 3.0 ports.
