There is a LED indicator on the front of the display. It glows blue when the monitor is on and red when it is in low power state, i.e. receiving less power than required for working efficiently.

The AOC U3277PWQU monitor uses a relative light matte anti-glare screen surface in it. The screen is not a standard IPS-type panel that is used on other 32 inches models with low haze. The screen surface used on AOC U3277PWQU is same as we can find in 28 TN models which are of high haze. The standard RGB stripe subpixel layout is taken into use. This is the standard pixel layout and already used by both Apple MacOS and Microsoft Windows.
The monitor gamma tracking was decent and out of the box. It tracked nearly 2.2 on average according to the colourimeter. However, from the image, as you can see it bowed a bit centrally, it means some shades will appear slightly lighter than they should appear.
