AOC is a name that should be familiar with our readers for its expansive family of gaming displays, and the company just added two new products to the mix. The CU34G2 and CU34G2X both measure 34 inches across, and have a resolution of 3440x1440 (21:9) with a 1500R curvature. Other specs shared between the two display include a 3000:1 [static] contrast ratio, 300 nits brightness rating, 1ms response time, and support for AMD FreeSync. However, there are some minor differences that separate the two. For example, the CU34G2's refresh rate tops out at 100Hz, while the CU34G2X will shimmy on up to 144Hz. Other features of AOC's new gaming monitor pair include a single DisplayPort 1.2 connector... Read more...
AOC is a well-known name when it comes to high performing gaming monitors, and the company is back at it again with the new Agon AG271FZ2 and AG251FZ2, which measure 27 inches and 24.5 inches respectively. The big claim to fame with both of these monitors is an incredibly fast 0.5ms response time. But it doesn't stop there; we're looking at a maximum 240Hz refresh rate for both monitors along with a AMD FreeSync (dynamic refresh rates supported from 48Hz to 240Hz over both DisplayPort and HDMI connections). Other features include a maximum brightness rating of 400 nits and horizontal/vertical viewing angles of 170 degrees and 160 degrees respectively. And in case you were wondering, both TN panels...

AOC is about to be giving ASUS and Acer some competition into the high-end monitor space with its new Agon AG353UCG. You can probably discern from the model name that this is a 35-inch display, but the devil is in the details. Not only is it big, the Agon AG353UCG sports a fast 200Hz refresh rate, HDR support, and a built-in G-Sync module. At the high-end of the display spectrum, ASUS and Acer have the ROG Swift PG27UQ and Predator X27, respectively. AOC's new Agon display is not trading blows with those panels directly, though there are notable similarities. For one, all three have fast refresh rates and built-in G-Sync modules, and they each can reach an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness level... Read more...
AOC has launched a big and fast gaming monitor that looks to be a good candidate for esports, driving simulations, and twitch-style gameplay in general. That's because it has a 144Hz refresh rate to go along with a 1-millesecond moving picture response time (MPRT). Support for AMD's first-generation FreeSync technology is part of the package as well. The new CQ32G1, which AOC announced in September, is a 31.5-inch "frameless" monitor with a curved (1800R) VA panel and a 2560x1440 resolution, otherwise known as quad HD (QHD). If you're unfamiliar with the various panel types, VA screens sit between lower quality twisted nematic (TN) and higher-quality in-plane switching (IPS) displays. AOC rates... Read more...
The last time that we visited AOC, the company announced four members of its G1 series of curved gaming monitors. Today, the company is announcing a new member of its AGON premium monitor family: the AG322QC4. The AG322QC4 is a 32-inch monitor with a QHD (2560x1440) display resolution. The monitor has a 4ms VA panel with an 1800R curve, is backed by AMD's FreeSync 2 technology, and covers 85 percent of the NTSC color gamut. In addition, it's the first AGON monitor to support HDR, and has in fact gained Display HDR400 certification. AOC also points out that the AG322QC4 has a 144Hz refresh rate (which is achieved when using DisplayPort). On the connectivity front, the monitor features... Read more...
When it comes to gaming monitors, AOC is always at the forefront, ready to deliver quality products at reasonable prices. The company's new G1 series is no different, offering curved gaming monitors ranging in size from 24 inches to 32 inches with prices starting at $229.99. The monitors that AOC has announced include the following: C24G1 --    24 inches C27G1 --    27 inches C32G1 --    32 inches CQ32G1 -- 32 inches The C24G1, C27G1, and C32G1 all feature Full HD (1920x1080) displays, while the CQ32G1 ups the stakes with a QHD (2560x1440) display. Three of the four displays feature an 1800R curvature, with the exception being the C24G1... Read more...
Back in January 2017, AOC announced the AG352UCG gaming monitorwhich featured a 35-inch panel with a 100Hz refresh rate. Now, just over a year later, AOC is back with a refreshed version of the monitor called the AG352UCG6. The new AG352UCG6 retains the 35-inch panel size of its predecessor, but now includes an 1800R curvature instead of 2000R. In addition, the refresh rate has been boosted from 100Hz to a loftier 120Hz for even smoother visuals while gaming. Like before, the resolution of the display is listed at WQHD (3440x1440). Other features include 300 cd/m2brightness rating, 4ms response time (grey-to-grey), 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC. You'll... Read more...
Do you have a bodacious new AMD Ryzen, Ryzen Threadripper or Intel Core X rig, and need a new monitor to compliment the system? Well, AOC is touting its new AG322QCX gaming monitor, which features an 1800R curve and a 16:9 aspect ratio. First and foremost, the AG322QCX measures 32 inches in size, and has a screen resolution of 2560x1440 (QHD). The gaming monitor features a VA panel with a 4ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness rating, and a 50 million:1 contrast ratio. As you might expect, viewing angles are generous (178 degrees vertical and horizontal), and it supports a color depth of 16.7 million colors. Since this is a gaming monitor first and foremost (as you can tell by its exuberant... Read more...
For ages, a 1ms response time has been the de facto standard for serious gamers, although we think most would agree that up to 4ms isn't too bad. 8ms is outright ridiculous. Well, both 4ms and 8ms seem real lackluster when compared to AOC's upcoming offerings: a couple of monitors sporting a 0.5 ms response time; or in other words, a response time that's 1/2,000th of a second. Whether or not most gamers would even notice the perceived difference between 1ms and 0.5ms is hard to gauge, but many serious gamers are likely to take this kind of release seriously simply because every little bit helps. And, this AOC duo sports other features that make them seem downright impressive. Both of these monitors,... Read more...
When it comes to timeless designs, it doesn’t get much better than the Porsche 911. Over 50 years after its initial launch, the 911 is still recognizable today in its modern 991-based iteration. Given the German company’s knack for design, AOC enlisted the help of Studio F. A. Porsche to help create its newest line of desktop displays, and they are quite striking in appearance. The Porsche Design Series (PDS) is available in 24-inch (PDS241) and 27-inch (PDS271) sizes, both of which include ultra slim display bezels on the left, right, and top. They also feature a rather unique-looking asymmetrical stand that houses a single cable used for HDMI and power, which terminates with a power brick-like... Read more...
There are plenty of competent monitors on the market these days to cover a wide variety of segments. Whether you need a basic display to browse the internet and read emails, or a fast gaming monitor with G-SYNC/FreeSync and ultra-fast response times, or a professional monitor with high-quality color representation; chances are there is a product out there to suit your specific needs. AOC is targeting creative professionals with its new C4008VU8, which is a curved screen 4K UHD (3840x2160) display with 10-bit color. The C4008VU8 can output over 1.07 billion colors with “more depth and richer color to produce more vibrant images.” AOC definitely isn’t targeting hardcore gamers with this display,... Read more...
AOC has come out of the gate swinging with an impressive new gaming monitor, the Agon AG352UCG, that looks to go toe-to-toe with Acer’s predator display family. The 35-inch monitor will surely dominate your viewing experience with its 2000R curved MVA panel and 21:9 aspect ratio. The AG352UCG features a QHD resolution (3440x1440) and maxes out with a refresh rate of 100Hz. You’ll be happy to learn that NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology is along for the ride to keep your Pascal graphics cards in perfect lockstep with the display panel, while helping to reduce screen tearing. The AG352UCG has a brightness rating of 300 cd/m², a response time of 4ms and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. Viewing angles are a respectable... Read more...
AOC has a new monitor that would impress even Goose and Maverick from Top Gun fame, a pair of Naval aviators with an insatiable need for speed. It's the Agon AG251FZ, a 25-inch Twisted Nematic (TN) display with a blazing fast 240Hz rate, 1920x1080 resolution, 1ms response time, and Adaptive Sync (AMD FreeSync) support for smooth gameplay without any motion blur. The TN panel might turn some people off, but AOC is going after raw speed here and not pinpoint color accuracy. Competitive gamers and the esports community are the ones who will take interest here, as opposed to graphics professionals and anyone else needing the high level of color accuracy that In Plane Switching (IPS) and some other...

If you’re into curved monitors, especially if you’re a gamer, AOC has debuted a new monitor that is sure to grab your attention. The C3583FQ is a 35-inch class monitor using standard TFT Active Matrix display technology that features a 2000R curvature — and it’s now available in the United States. “To envision the C3583FQ’s 2000R curvature, imagine making a circle of just C3583FQ monitors,” writes AOC. “The screens would be 6.5 feet away from a seat placed at the circle and the circle of monitors would have a diameter of 13 feet.” The monitor, which features a black and silver finish, has an impressive 144Hz refresh rate and a fast 4ms response time. You won’t need high-end graphics cards to... Read more...
Ever since the 4K consumer resolution first hit the scene, one of the biggest hurdles in adoption has been price. Well, as with most things tech, things have dramatically improved over time, and I think it's safe to say that we've reached a point where a lack of adoption right now has little to do with price. AOC's U2870VQE is a good example of why. The U2870VQE, for starters, is a 28-inch screen - so it's hardly teeny tiny. Yet, despite that, and the fact that it boasts a 3840x2160 resolution, it's currently available on sale for $349 at Microcenter (SRP is $499; Amazon currently has it for $466). Of course, there are a few caveats, but even so - 4K... 28-inch... $349. That's amazing. The biggest... Read more...
We think NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology holds a lot of promise for gamers, though availability is a bit scarce at the moment, with just a few panels supporting the feature. Go ahead and add AOC's G24060PG 24-inch gaming monitor to the mix. AOC's newest display implements G-SYNC technology, which works with supported GeForce GPUs to synchronize the display refresh rate. Why does it matter? Taking advantage of G-SYNC technology essentially eliminates screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag. And what all that translates into is a smoother gaming experience with less ghosting and other unwanted artifacts related to sync issues. The AOC G24060PG pumps out the action with a 144Hz refresh...

AOC’s new 24-inch monitor looks nice enough at first blush, with a relatively thin silver bezel and what is no doubt a crisp, bright image, but underneath is where the good stuff is located. The company built a pair of 7W Onkyo speakers into the base. AOC is billing this display (the i2473Pwm) as “ideal entertainment hub” because of it. The 24-inch LED-backlit IPS monitor also features full HD resolution as well as one VGA and two HDMI inputs. It offers 5ms response time, the ability to tilt -5 degrees to 20 degrees, and it comes with a 75x75mm VESA mount. But obviously, the company is most exciting about the speakers. “This provides higher quality audio than other monitor... Read more...
Ask any person who owns a dual-monitor setup and they'll all tell you they couldn't fathom going back to a single display. Maybe you're one of those people, and if so, you know exactly the feeling we're talking about. But what if you could enjoy all the benefits of a dual-monitor configuration from a single monitor? Would you be game to reclaiming some desk space by trading in two panels for a single display? AOC aims to answer that question with its new 29-inch Q2963PM display. Armed with an UltraWide In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, this LED-backlit monitor boasts a 2560x1080 resolution with 21:9 aspect ratio, providing viewers with an extra-long panoramic view...

There hasn't been a whole of innovation in recent years when it comes to large screen monitors in the neighborhood of 30 inches. That's about to change. For one, 4K Ultra HD resolution is attempting to gain a foothold in the mainstream market, though it will still be some time before we see a deluge of affordable 4K monitors. Secondly, UltraWide displays are making a bid for the desktop, and if you're on the fence about whether or not to get one, AOC hopes to give you a push by temporarily dropping the price of its Cinematic 29-inch UltraWide Q2963PM monitor. From now through June 30, AOC's UltraWide display is available at Best Buy, Newegg, TigerDirect, and other locales for $399. That's $100... Read more...
Here's a friendly reminder that today is the last day to file your individual tax returns (Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ) unless you're requesting an extension, in which case you still have six more months. Either way, if you're looking to splurge on a display with your anticipated tax refund, AOC hopes you'll be tempted by its new Q2963PM monitor with an UltraWide panel. The Q2963PM is a 29-inch display with a 2650x1080 resolution (21:9 aspect ratio). Why would you want such a super widescreen monitor? The idea is to offer dual-monitor productivity from a single display, which it achieves with multiple input options (DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI) and support for both Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and...

Bezel? We don’t need no stinking bezel. AOC has a new monitor, the 23-inch i2367fh, and the unit’s facade is almost 100% screen; technically there is a bezel, but it’s just 2mm thick. In general, the monitor is a bit of a looker, with a brushed metal finish on the lower front part and rear of the unit and a slim brushed metal stand to complement the edge-to-edge look of the screen, and the display itself is a svelte 12mm thick. The IPS display features 1920x1080 full HD resolution, a 50,000,000:1 contrast ratio (which is substantially better than AOC's recently-released e2752Vh), and 5ms response time, as well as a WLED backlight designed to facilitate very low power consumption....
