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

I am undecided I agree with calling a curved panel “loopy immersive” (really, I’m constructive I disagree), nonetheless I will present AOC some selling leeway on its 27-inch CQ27G1 gaming monitor. It is priced attractively at $279.99, and the corporate’s new “Re-Spawned” monitor program is fairly rad.

The CQ27G1 is outfitted with a VA (vertical alignment) panel, which by method of top of the range, usually sits between a lower-end TN (twisted nematic) and higher-end IPS (in-plane switching) present.

On this case, the monitor serves up a 2560×1440 willpower and a decently-fast (or “screaming,” in AOC’s phrases) 144Hz refresh worth. It furthermore boasts a 1ms response time that’s of the MPRT (movement image response time) selection and in no way the extra often used GtG (gray-to-gray) metric. That doable suggests the precise native GtG response time is a contact greater, with the monitor using backlight flicker to offer a perceived 1ms response time.

FreeSync assistance is a part of the bundle deal deal too, although not FreeSync 2 HDR. Which implies HDR visuals are a no-go—at 250 nits, it may not have the brightness required for HDR (400 nits is the minimal VESA will even think about for its DisplayHDR certification, and 1,000 nits is the place HDR actually shines).

So this is usually a useful compilation of the specs, together with just a few utterly totally different particulars:

  • 27 inches (diagonal)
  • VA panel w/ WLED backlight
  • 2560×1440 willpower
  • 144Hz refresh worth
  • 1ms MPRT (movement image response time)
  • FreeSync assist
  • 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 selling hyperbole continues with the outline of this being a three-sided “frameless design” with “ultra-narrow” bezels.  I would say it developments nearer to the latter than the sooner, primarily based completely on a close-up of the render above, nonetheless you be the decide.

Full, although, the specs look good for the cash. And in regards to the guarantee, it is backed for Three years, with the allowance of a one-time unintended harm declare all through the primary 12 months. It furthermore features a zero-deal pixel assure and a complicated numerous danger.

We now have not examined this monitor, nonetheless in case you might be intrigued ample to purchase it, you’ll obtain this proper now on Amazon.
