AOC AGon AG251FZ $330


Thanks to its lack of G-Sync, this dis­play has an im­pres­sively low price. You’re still pay­ing a pre­mium over 144Hz dis­plays, but here you’re get­ting more for your money to go with that faster re­fresh rate.

For a start, you get a more pre­mium de­sign and build than an en­try-level gam­ing dis­play. The sturdy stand and base are metal, and of­fer a range of ad­just­ments, while the dis­play it­self has a real solid­ness to it. The carry han­dle is also a nice touch.

There are sev­eral ex­tras, too. On the side of the dis­play there are a cou­ple of USB 3.0 ports, head­phone and mi­cro­phone jacks, and a flip-down head­phone stand. Round the back, you also get two more USB 3.0 ports, two HDMI ports, and a Dis­playPort. You even get a pair of speak­ers.

All this and the dis­play de­liv­ers when it comes to per­for­mance, too. Com­bine this dis­play with an AMD graph­ics card to en­able Freesync, and you have a smooth and re­spon­sive gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Im­age qual­ity is also very good. Con­trast is a touch low, but oth­er­wise it is right up there with the rest of the dis­plays in this test.

The com­bi­na­tion of value, ex­tra fea­tures, and a pre­mium build makes this a com­pelling op­tion. 95%
