AOC AG271QG 165Hz IPS-type G-SYNC model

The AOC AG271QX was a recently announced member of the new AGON series of gaming monitors. Using a FreeSync-compatible 144Hz TN panel with 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution, it seems an interesting alternative to products like the BenQ XL2730Z. The AOC AG271QG, also of the AGON series, offers an interesting alternative to products like the ASUS PG279Q and Acer XB271HU.

AOC AG241QG and AG241QX 144Hz+ WQHD models

Having taken a look at the Dell P2416D, which was one of the first WQHD (2560 x 1440) models to hit the scene with a ~24” screen, we can certainly see the appeal of that combination of screen size and resolution. The size itself is one many are comfortable to have on their desks, whilst we found the monitor fine to use without scaling – and also enjoyed the pixel density.

LG 34UC79G 144Hz IPS UltraWide model

Recent trends in the 21:9 UltraWide market have included a combination of ‘overclocked’ IPS models, running at up to 100Hz. And of course VA models ‘running’ at up to 200Hz without really offering offering sufficient pixel responsiveness to support this properly. The LG 34UC79G (also known as the 34UC79G-B due to the matte black colouration) offers something a bit different – a native 144Hz AH-IPS panel.

ViewSonic VP2468 Full HD model for colour-critical work

IPS (In Plane Switching) and IPS-type (PLS, AHVA etc.) panels are the preferred choice for colour-critical work due to their relatively strong colour consistency and viewing angle performance. The ViewSonic VP2468 uses the popular 23.8” IPS-type panel size and places it in very sleek-looking housing. The bezels feature a dual-stage design, with extremely thin hard outer plastic component and a very slim panel border.

Dell U2917W and U3417W UltraWide monitors

Since the introduction of the first 21:9 monitors, including the Dell U2913WM, there have been many developments in this sector.

Dell have now refreshed their UltraWide line-up with replacements for both the U2913WM and U3415W. The U2917W is a replacement for the former, again featuring a flat 29” screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution.

AOC U3277PWQU with ‘4K’ UHD MVA panel

The 3840 x 2160 ‘4K’ UHD resolution has a lot to offer, especially on a ~32” screen where the balance between readability and pixel density is relatively good. For users wanting the strong contrast and lack of ‘IPS glow’ that VA (Vertical Alignment) technology offers, the choice of UHD models has been quite overwhelming. So far, in fact, they have been limited to monitors using 40” or so panels that borrowed from TVs.
