2017 is almost over and the holiday season is just around the corner. Some of you will be getting upgraded computer kit, whether for gaming or design. However, don’t overlook your monitor. Thankfully, AOC has a monitor for everyone.
We have reviewed and announcend many AOC monitors throughout the year. Most of what we’ve had at Gadgety HQ has been more aimed towards gamers, the lovely AGON series. But the compnay has much more to offer.
PDS Series – designed by Studio F. A. Porsche
Launched this spring, the PDS series represents the pinnacle of monitor design. This is thanks to its exceptional appearance conceptualised jointly with Studio F. A. Porsche.
These monitors boast the latest generation IPS panels with Full HD resolution, 4 ms GtG response time and a wide colour gamut of 100% sRGB and 90% NTSC support.
Those scores means that these monitors are not just a design object, but an object to design with as well!
Regarding that design, how good is its clean minimalistic look? This has been achieved by combining the necessary cables (power and signal) into the design of the stand itself.
The twisted look of the stand is inspired by the way cables naturally twist.
These connections run through the stand and end up in a modular box, where they are separated again.
Together, with an almost frameless design on 3-sides, you can dive right into the brilliant images.
AGON Series – outstanding gaming experience
With the lastest blockbuster AAA titles being launched just in time for the holiday season, gamers can take advantage of the many sales and special offers. Now, would also be the best time to upgrade to one of the latest gaming monitors.
Since last year AOC has been releasing a steady stream of innovative and desirable high-end gaming monitors in its premium gaming line-up entitled AGON.
The AG322QCX, launched this summer, is equipped with a 31.5-inch VA panel with a 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution. The impressive specs continue with suppor for 3000:1 static contrast, 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync. Its 1800R curvature lets users truly immerse themselves in virtual battlegrounds.
For an even more immersive experience, you should look to the AG352UCG with its 21:9 aspect ratio.We had this beast in for review, and didn’t want to return it.
A 100 Hz refresh rate and G-SYNC support contribute to a smooth, tear-free and stutter-free experience.
If First Person Shooters (FPS) are your thing, then your needs will go beyond curvature or ultra-wide screens. You need the fastest panels on the market.
Equipped with a Full HD resolution TN panel, the AG251FG guarantees you’ll be getting the highest framerates. Experience it yourselves once and see the difference of 240 Hz vs regular 60 Hz. Beware, you may not want to go back to a slower monitor ever!
Homes and offices upgrade to the 90 series
These monitors come in 23.8-inch or 27-inch sizes and are offered in either simple or fully ergonomic stands.
Also, all those models boast the latest IPS panels with wide viewing angles and wide colour gamut coverage (100% sRGB and 90% NTSC).
Equipped with 3-sides “frameless” bezels, these monitors bring sleekness as well as freshness to offices and homes alike.
What’s more, they lend themselves to a seamless multiple monitor set-up without distracting gaps between the units.
The flagship model, Q2790PQU comes with QHD (1440p) resolution, while all other display of the series come with Full HD (1080p) resolution.
Selected models also boast a USB 3.0 hub, offering easy access for external peripherals such as USB sticks and even a quick charging USB port for mobile devices.
