The AG251FG may come with the same 24.5-inch 240Hz panel as the Viewsonic XG2530 and BenQ XL2540, but it adds something new in the form of G-Sync. Let’s see which monitor reigns as our favourite by the end of the article.
We’ll start with a brief look at the monitor’s design and features.Design
The AG251FG is immediately recognisable as an AOC monitor, with the company’s trademark straight-edge aluminium stand. The stand rests on a V-shaped base, just wide enough to fit a tenkeyless (compact) keyboard between the two legs.
The AG251FG’s bezels are reasonably thin (2.5mm) on the top and both sides, and a little chunkier [...]
Today we’re looking at one of the fastest monitors on the market: the 240Hz ViewSonic XG2530. Using the same panel as the BenQ Zowie XL2540, can ViewSonic prove that their implementation is the one to choose for buttery-smooth gaming? Let’s find out!Design
The ViewSonic XG2530 is a stylish monitor with that traditional ‘gamer’ look: black chassis, red trim. It’s a sensible arrangement that melds well with many other gaming peripherals, but I do wish we’d see a little more variety in the marketplace!
The ergonomic stand allows for good levels of adjustability, including height adjustment and rotation, while the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
This 1080p gaming monitor from BenQ has it all: a 31.5-inch display with 1800R curvature, a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a VA panel that boasts high contrast, good colour accuracy and decent viewing angles too. It’s not the highest resolution panel in the world, but that makes it a lot easier to hit its high refresh rate. It’s a strong set of specs, but how does it perform in the real world? Let’s put it to the test!Design
The EX3200R is a stylish monitor with medium-size bezels and a noticeably curved display. The curvature provides a more immersive experience, fitting the screen more easily into your peripheral vision, and in turn making it a [...]
