The AGON AOC AG322QCX is one of the biggest gaming monitors you can get for less than £500, but is it the best? Today, we put this 31.5-inch 1440p 144Hz giant to the test!Design
The design of the AG322QCX follows other AOC AGON monitors, with a thin-bezelled panel sitting atop a stylish metal base. Adjustability is good, with options for tilting, swivelling and height adjustment. The whole assembly feels sturdy, and the monitor never feels at risk of wobbling or falling over.
A carry handle at the back makes relocating the monitor easier, which is particularly welcome on such a large screen. The monitor has three colour LEDs built into the bottom of the [...]
Acer’s Predator lineup includes some of the best gaming monitors around, so we’re excited to test drive one of the newest additions: the Z1. We’re testing the 30-inch version of this curved gaming monitor, which supports up to a 200Hz refresh rate, 2560 x 1080 resolution and Tobii eye tracking. Let’s get right into it!Design
Before we start testing out the Z1, let’s take a look at its design which remains the same throughout the three sizes available — 27 inches, 30 inches and 31.5 inches. The 30-inch model is the only one with the 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio; the other two are more pedestrian 16:9 affairs. No matter which model [...]
1440p and 4K monitors are becoming increasingly mainstream, but gamers on mid-range PCs may find that monitors with high refresh rates and 1080p resolution can be a better choice. Today we’re looking at one monitor that fits that description, the AOC AGON AG272FCX. This monitor has that desirable 144Hz refresh rate, Adaptive Sync and a 1800R curved VA panel. Let’s see how it performs in our full review.Design
The AGON AG272FCX is an attractive monitor in AOC’s normal style, with a shiny metal stand with a tripod base. This ensures the monitor takes up minimal desk space, allowing room for small keyboards and other desk detritus to nestle between the front [...]
Today we review BenQ’s latest eye care monitor, the EW3270ZL. This massive 32-inch monitor is aimed at a professional audience, with a generous 2560 x 1440 resolution, a wide-gamut 100% sRGB panel and the full spectrum of BenQ’s health-conscious features: a flicker-free display, a blue light reduction mode and an adaptive brightness function. Let’s get right into the review, starting with the design!Design
The EW3270ZL is a sturdy but attractive monitor, a 32-inch panel mounted in a frame that’s skinny on the top and the sides, a little thicker on the bottom. The BenQ logo sits atop a little sensor that helps to adjust the brightness based on the [...]
We normally review premium projectors for gaming, made by BenQ and others, but today we’ve got something different: a £100 mini-projector, designed for portability while still having a good laundry list of features. It’s called the DBPOWER T20, and it’s on the review bench today. Let’s get started!SpecificationsTFT LCD imaging technology 1500 lumens brightness 1000:1 contrast ratio 16:10 aspect ratio 1.4:1 projection ratio 800 x 480 native resolution 1920 x 1080 supported 15 degree manual keystone 1.5 to 5 metre throw distance 32 to 176 inch screen size Comes with remote, AV cable, HDMI cable, manualDesign

AOC are well known for their industrial design and good value-for-money monitors, and both seem well represented by their 35-inch curved gaming monitor, the AG352QCX. This monitor is relatively inexpensive given its size, with a moderate 2560 x 1080 resolution, but still manages to include a high 200Hz refresh rate and a litany of modes and features.
Let’s begin our review with a look at its design.Design
The focal point of the AG352QCX is the MVA panel, which measures 35 inches along the diagonal and reaches a resolution of 2560 x 1080. That’s not the highest pixel density we’ve seen on a monitor of this size, but it does ensure that you [...]
