AOC C27G2ZU review: a great value 240Hz gaming monitor

240Hz gaming monitors are all the rage among competitive esports circles at the moment, but I have to admit that I've never felt creakier or more decrepit playing games than I have with AOC's C27G2ZU plonked on my desk. To be clear, I'm not casting shade on the monitor itself. This 27in, 1920x1080 gaming display has an absolutely top quality curved VA panel, and its…

AOC have five new 240Hz gaming monitors on the way

Good news for anyone on the lookout for a new 240Hz gaming screen, as monitor maker AOC have announced they've got five of them coming out over the next couple of months. There's a mix of curved and flat monitors to be found in AOC's new batch of super high refresh rate gaming monitors, as well as screen sizes ranging from 24in all the way…

Feature: Is the Agon AG353UCG the best ultrawide monitor yet?

AOC’s latest ultrawide monitor is a 200Hz Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate super screen

I love playing games on a good ultrawide monitor, and the AOC Agon AG353UCG is arguably the fanciest one that's ever crossed my desk. It's got all the bells and whistles you could possibly want: a curved 35in screen, a 3440x1440 resolution, a massive 200Hz refresh rate and full Nvidia G-Sync Ultimate support, which means it can do proper, high-end TV-grade HDR with a peak…

Monitor maker AOC are also making mice and keyboards now

AOC make great gaming monitors. You might even say they make some of the very best gaming monitors around. Indeed, their excellent AOC 24G2U is currently our RPS Rig-approved gaming monitor and one of the best budget screens you can buy today. Did you also know, though, that they now make their own AGON-branded peripherals? I certainly didn't, but if my brief hands on with…

AOC have a new 49in monitor to rival Samsung’s CRG9

At the end of last year, you may have noticed I took quite a shine to the enormous Samsung CRG9 monitor. With its 49in screen and 5120x1440 resolution, it was an absolutely fantastic way to play Red Dead Redemption 2, as well as many of the other best ultrawide PC games available right now. Well, now AOC have one to rival it. Just like the…

AOC Agon AG273QX review: Finally, a perfect 1440p, HDR monitor

I love a great 1920x1080 gaming monitor as much as the next person, but personally, I've always been more of a 2560x1440 kinda gal. The problem is, my current best gaming monitor recommendation for 1440p is the increasingly scarce MSI Optix MPG27CQ, and I've been desperately trying to find a replacement for it all year. BenQ's EX3203R came close, but was let down by its…

AOC’s 24G2U is another best budget gaming monitor champion

AOC's C24G1 is an excellent gaming monitor for those on a budget, but for those of you who prefer flat screens as opposed to curved ones, then the AOC 24G2U is definitely the monitor for you. This 24in, 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync screen shares many of the same specs as the C24G1, but comes with a flat, even more accurate IPS panel instead of a…

Our best budget gaming monitor is just £135 / $145 for Black Friday

The Black Friday gaming monitor deals have been a little lacklustre this year, but your deals herald has finally found one worth shouting about. It's on the AOC C24G1, our best gaming monitor pick for those on a budget, which is now down to a very agreeable £135 / $145 over on Amazon.

Feature: 144Hz and AMD FreeSync for under £200 / $200

AOC’s C24G1 is the new successor to the best budget gaming monitor throne

For years, the AOC G2460PF has been sitting atop our best gaming monitor list unchallenged and undefeated. With its sub-£200 / $200 price, 144Hz refresh rate and superb TN panel, it's by far one of the best screens around for those on a budget. The only problem is that it's getting on a bit now, and is becoming increasingly difficult to track down. Enter AOC's…

Feature: The competition for best budget 4K monitor just got a little bit hotter

AOC G2868PQU review: 4K gaming on a budget

If you've been thinking about upgrading to a 4K gaming monitor recently, then the good news is that you needn't spend upwards of £2500 / $2500 on something like the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ or Acer Predator X27 to get one that's halfway decent. Indeed, you can happily shave off one of those zeroes and get the brilliant value for money BenQ EL2870U, or even…

AOC Agon AG273QCG review: 1440p G-Sync goodness, with a catch

Nvidia G-Sync monitors already cost an arm and a leg more than regular gaming monitors, but bump the resolution up to 2560x1440 and throw in a curved panel with a 165Hz refresh rate and you're looking at spending an arm and a leg plus both of your kidneys. All right, so £649 / $650 for AOC's new Agon AG273QCG isn't quite as bad as, say,…

AOC U2879VF review: 4K gaming on the cheap

The best gaming monitors with 4K resolutions often cost an absolute fortune these days, mostly because of all the RGB bells and Nvidia G-Sync whistles that tend to accompany them. The delightfully plain 28in AOC U2879VF, however, sits at the opposite end of the spectrum, ditching several of the fancy extras you'd find on your typical 4K 'gaming' screen in favour of a lower price:…

AOC Agon AG322QC4 review: An excellent FreeSync 2 HDR monitor, brightness be damned

HDR on PC (or high dynamic range) is all well and good when it actually works, but let's face it, no one wants to shell out north of £2000 / $2000 on one of Nvidia's fancy G-Sync HDR monitors like the Acer Predator X27 or Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ when it's still so damn fiddly to get right. Admittedly, things aren't any simpler over on…

AOC G2590PX review: A fussy 144Hz gaming monitor

The AOC G2590PX is the latest version of the excellent AOC G2460PF. Now with a marginally bigger screen and a sleeker, more modern design, I was absolutely convinced this 1920x1080, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync display would be an absolute shoo-in to replace the G2460PF as one of my best gaming monitor recommendations for 2018. Sadly, it would appear my confidence was misplaced.

AOC unveil first FreeSync 2 monitor, the AGON AG322QC4

The vast majority of PC gamers may own Nvidia graphics cards, but when it comes to the world of gaming monitors and adaptive frame rate technologies, AMD rule the roost. The reasons for this are unknown. Perhaps it's because AMD's FreeSync tech (see our best gaming monitor guide for more info on the Free vs G debate) doesn't require monitor companies to pay an extra royalty…

AOC’s new AG352UCG6 monitor brings 120Hz to ultrawide gaming

Just in case you haven't had enough of curved, ultrawide monitors recently, you'll be pleased to hear that AOC is about to unveil a brand new one at this year's Intel Extreme Masters tournament in Katowice, Poland.Dubbed the AG352UCG6 Black Edition (yes, that's the AG352UCG I reviewed with a 6 on the end), this 35in, 3440x1440 MVA monitor now comes with a 120Hz refresh rate, allowing you to…

AOC Agon AG352UCG review: The Final Fantasy XII monitor quest continues

As I continue my quest to find the best ultrawide monitor for playing Final Fantasy XII, the next display in my party roster is the AOC Agon AG352UCG. Equipped with a 100Hz refresh rate, Nvidia G-Sync support and an LED-laden lower bezel, this curved, 35in 3440x1440 monitor has almost everything you could possibly want for the ultimate 21:9 experience. Almost.

AOC E2470SWH review: An OK pick for a cheap second screen

Adding a second screen to your PC can bring several benefits, whether it's giving you more space to work or, for the YouTube and Twitch crowd, the ability to read web pages while you game. Finding room in your budget for one, however, is often much harder, especially if you've already spent a lot on your first monitor. Enter the AOC E2470SWH.

AOC G2460VQ6 review: 75Hz gaming on a budget

Given they share all but three of the same letters, you'd think the AOC G2460VQ6 would be pretty similar to the G2460PF I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. To some extent, they are - both share an almost identical outward appearance with an understated red stripe down the lower bezel, and each has a 24in TN panel that supports AMD's adaptive frame-rate technology, FreeSync, which…

AOC G2460PF review: Superb 144Hz gaming for £170

Take one look at the AOC G2460PF’s price of £170 (at time of writing) and you’d probably think it was a pretty standard kind of display. After all, 24in Full HD monitor prices often start around the £100-200 mark, and you can find several screens around the same £170 mark that don't have anything to shout about other than a mildly adjustable stand.AOC's G2460PF, however, is…
