AOC PDS241 review: Porsche design

Extraordinary monitor convinces, not only due to its looks

Viewing angles

The new viewing angle measurements are a lot more detailed than before. Aside from the reduction in brightness we also measure the colour deviation. The standard deviation is shown once again. This is based on the sub-measurements of the base- and support colours, plus 100% and 75% white. If the standard deviation is low, the brightness of all colours is reduced in the same manner. Unfortunately we have not tested enough monitors to be able to put these values into perspective, which is why we show the information here without linking it to a conclusion.

Because this test is performed differently than the test we used to do, these results are not comparable with those of the older test method. For this test we measure at a brightness of 150 cd/m² instead of using the maximum brightness, and the distance between the device and the screen is different.

We see fairly good results horizontally in terms of remaining brightness, while the colour quality remains remarkably good, both in terms of deviation and in terms of standard deviation. Vertically the AOC PDS241 is clearly part of top half of the graph.

Below you can find the deviations of white for the four viewing angles – in the graphs above cover the average colour deviation, which explains the different values.
