Viewing angles are wide at 178 degrees horizontally and vertically, and refresh rates hit 60Hz.

In terms of ergonomics, AOC has equipped the U3277PWQU with a height-adjustable stand that allows for tilting between -3.5 degrees and 1.5 degrees, swiveling, and height adjustments up to 130mm. The monitor can support various uses cases with a 90-degree pivot that allows for easily switching between landscape and portrait modes.
