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 [...]
The Philips 272P7VPTKEB is a catchily-named monitor designed for creative types. The monitor is built around a 4K IPS panel with 10-bit colour, which should translate into a sharp and colour-accurate picture ideal for image editing, animation, CAD/CAM, colour grading and other professional pursuits. The 27-inch panel is expansive without taking up too much desk space, while the inclusion of a webcam and USB ports should make this a convenient part of any office. Here’s our review.Design
This Philips monitor comes with a modern design, comprising of that 4K panel surrounded by a relatively thin black bezel.
Press on the top of the monitor, and a small [...]
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 [...]
This IPS monitor for creatives boasts 100% sRGB and Rec.709 coverage and a modern thin bezel design, but we’re more excited about its built-in USB-C dock. A single cable carries video, audio, four USB peripherals and power for your laptop — awesome! Here’s our review of the BenQ PD2710Qc.Design
The PD2710Qc has a modern design, with slim and dark bezels on all four sides of the 27-inch 8-bit panel. The monitor has a resolution of 2560 x 1440, with a quoted 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/㎡ peak brightness and 5 ms GtG response time. 1080p monitors at this size look a little grainy, and 4K monitors require scaling in Windows, so 1440p is a reasonable [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
