Gamers, between March and April, will be able to use the new (frameless) AGON G2 monitors, brought to 165 Hz refresh rate which, in the top variants, will also benefit from a more versatile stand, and a USB hub to tidy up the desks.
After the new models announced in January, the Taiwanese brand AOC has announced that it has expanded its bouquet of displays for gaming (and not only) with two new models, also present in a “reduced” version in terms of equipment, which took place in the 24G2SPU (24G2SPAE) and 27G2SPU (27G2SPAE).
Available between March and April, the new monitors 24G2SPU (263.80 dollars, or 241 euros) and 27G2SPU (324.47 dollars, or 296 euros), included in the AGON range, just below the G3 series (which includes models with 1000R curvature), give new life blood to the G2 series since, in essence, they replace the previous 24G2U and 27G2U models. Basically, they can also be adjusted in height, inclination, and rotation and, thanks to their frameless design on 3 sides, they are perfectly suited to multi-monitor contexts, perhaps combined (from July) with the simplified counterparts 24G2SPU (237.42 dollars, or 271 euros. ) and 27G2SPU ($ 296.77, or 271 euros), which can be mounted via the VESA mount or via the AD110D0 arm.
From a visual point of view, the 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU monitors have 24 (60.5) and 27 inch (68.6 cm) IPS panels, with FullHD resolution: a smooth gaming experience is ensured by the 165 Hz refresh rate, but also by the extreme reactivity stigmatized by the value of 1 ms as response time (MPRT) also useful for ensuring blur-free and sharp images, where support for Adaptive-Sync, a harbinger of a variable refresh rate, avoids tearing phenomena.
The hardware technical kit of the AOC AGON 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU monitors also includes other elements, such as the USB hub, which is practical in reducing the clutter on the desk by allowing input peripherals such as keyboard and mouse to be connected directly to the monitor, or as the pair of 2W speaker each. It should be emphasized that the lack of the USB hub and the presence of a less complex stand are precisely the distinctive characteristics of the aforementioned simplified variants 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU.
On the software level, the AOC AGON 24G2SPU and 27G2SPU monitors have the renewed OSD G-Menu, to adjust the settings on the fly, three presets according to specific types of game (FPS, RTS, Racing), a LowBlue Mode for long game sessions or night gaming, a Game Color mode that allows you to customize the saturation at will, and the overlay of the viewfinder via Dial Point.
