PC GAMER (UK) - - Hardware -

Over the last year the PC gam­ing com­mu­nity has been in­un­dated with this new pop­u­lar high-end mon­i­tor spec. IPS, 4MS G2G, 165Hz, G-Sync, 27 inches and 1440p. View­sonic, AOC, Acer and Asus all sport vari­ants of this model.

The 27-inch screen size com­bined with that 2560x1440 res­o­lu­tion pro­vides the right bal­ance be­tween pixel density and graph­ics card load. Add a rel­a­tively ag­gres­sive pixel re­sponse time, fan­tas­tic colour re­pro­duc­tion and G-Sync, and you’re onto a win­ner.

The prob­lem is that AOC cur­rently of­fers its AG271QG at an as­ton­ish­ingly low £550, for the same spec. The only dif­fer­ence is a slightly al­tered chas­sis. Ul­ti­mately if you’re in the mar­ket for a screen of this spec, it comes down to brand loy­alty, and what you’re will­ing to pay.
