AOC has been really busy recently. Following on the news of the additions to their G1 series, they have just announced a whole new monitor series, V2.
The V2 series of gaming monitor debuts in three display sizes – 21.5-inch, 23.8-inch and 27-inch. The super-slim monitors are equipped with 3-sides frameless IPS panels throwing out Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution.

The new and innovative frameless ‘Edge’ design hides the display frame behind the panel. This is what gives it the ultra clean look. Also, this sleek appearance continues with an extra slim side profile (7.7 mm for the 21.5-inch and 23.6-models, 7.9 mm for 27-inch). Additionally, the back is totally flat, without any bumps or bulges. This is all supported by an equally elegant metal stand. Ergonomics are catered to by over 20° of tilt adjustment.
These new V2 series monitors are also equipped with a snappy 5 ms response time, 75 Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync. You also get wide viewing angles (178°/178°) as well as accurate colours (72% NTSC gamut coverage).
Digital inputs include HDMI and DisplayPort enables hook-up of various entertainment sources as well as PCs, such as game consoles, set-top boxes etc. Audio output enables connecting headphones or external speakers as well.
The V2 series also comes with innovative AOC technologies. These include Flicker-Free technology that regulates brightness with Direct Current (DC) instead of PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). Additionally, the Low Blue Mode reduces potentially harmful blue wavelengths. The innovation continues with “Clear Vision”, which increases clarity, sharpness and vividness of Standard Definition (SD) content. For more productivity, the V2 series supports easily manageable multi-monitor setups with the AOC Screen+ software.
