AOC launches a 1440p curved 27-inch monitor for $279

I’m undecided I agree with calling a curved panel “crazy immersive” (actually, I am constructive I disagree), nonetheless I’m going to provide AOC some promoting leeway on its 27-inch CQ27G1 gaming monitor. It’s priced attractively at $279.99, and the company’s new “Re-Spawned” monitor program is pretty rad.

The CQ27G1 is outfitted with a VA (vertical alignment) panel, which by manner of top quality, often sits between a lower-end TN (twisted nematic) and higher-end IPS (in-plane switching) show.

On this case, the monitor serves up a 2560×1440 determination and a decently-fast (or “screaming,” in AOC’s phrases) 144Hz refresh value. It moreover boasts a 1ms response time that is of the MPRT (motion picture response time) choice and by no means the additional usually used GtG (gray-to-gray) metric. That doable suggests the exact native GtG response time is a contact bigger, with the monitor utilizing backlight flicker to provide a perceived 1ms response time.

FreeSync help is part of the package deal deal too, though not FreeSync 2 HDR. Which means HDR visuals are a no-go—at 250 nits, it might not have the brightness required for HDR (400 nits is the minimal VESA will even take into consideration for its DisplayHDR certification, and 1,000 nits is the place HDR truly shines).

So this can be a helpful compilation of the specs, along with just some completely different particulars:

  • 27 inches (diagonal)
  • VA panel w/ WLED backlight
  • 2560×1440 determination
  • 144Hz refresh value
  • 1ms MPRT (motion picture response time)
  • FreeSync help
  • 250 nits brightness
  • 80,000,000:1 distinction ratio (dynamic)
  • 178 ranges viewing angles (horizontal and vertical)
  • DisplayPort 1.2 (x1) + HDM 2.0 (x2) + 3.5mm headphone output

AOC’s promoting hyperbole continues with the define of this being a three-sided “frameless design” with “ultra-narrow” bezels.  I’d say it developments nearer to the latter than the earlier, based totally on a close-up of the render above, nonetheless you be the determine.

Complete, though, the specs look good for the money. And concerning the assure, it’s backed for Three years, with the allowance of a one-time unintended hurt declare throughout the first 12 months. It moreover includes a zero-deal pixel guarantee and an advanced various risk.

We now haven’t examined this monitor, nonetheless in case you are intrigued ample to buy it, you’ll be able to achieve this right now on Amazon.
