AOC has introduced the Agon Q27G3XMN-BK, a 27in WQHD gaming monitor that includes a Mini-LED backlight. Alongside a 180Hz refresh price, the combo goals to ship an impactful HDR expertise with out breaking the financial institution.
Primarily based on a 27in QHD (2560×1440) VA panel, the Q27G3XMN-BK focuses closely on deep blacks and punchy highlights. That is largely due to its 336 dimming zones courtesy of the Mini-LED backlight. With VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certification underneath its belt, it boasts inky blacks and as much as 1000nits of peak brightness. Whereas in all probability not so good as OLEDs when dealing with darkish tones, the Mini-LED VA combo sidesteps potential pixel burning. Usually, it’s a suitable compromise, particularly at its worth.
However that’s not all. AOC equips the show with a 10-bit color depth (8-bit + FRC), 95% DCI-P3 gamut protection, and 4000:1 static distinction. You may not discover them as a lot because the 180Hz refresh price and 1ms GtG response time, however these specs actually sound good. That stated, for those who’re on the lookout for the final word expertise, possibly take a look at AOC’s 45in 240Hz ultra-wide OLED gaming monitor.
You possibly can customise the show’s parameters by way of the built-in buttons or AOC’s G-Menu software program. The previous is ok for a one-time config, whereas the latter is extra handy for those who swap profiles rather a lot. Who switches profiles, you ask? People who have one for day and one for evening, for instance.
Connectivity-wise, there’s nothing too fancy. You get your typical single DisplayPort 1.4 plus twin HDMI 2.0 for console avid gamers, alongside a lonely 3.5mm audio jack. The monitor’s PSU is built-in, merely requiring a kettle lead. We personally like having an exterior energy brick for reparability. In any case, PSU failure accounts for almost all of our screens giving up the ghost. Nonetheless, built-in is turning into extra widespread.
Lastly, you’ll be able to alter the Q27G3XMN-BK in top by 130mm, in tilt by 21.5°, in swivel by 30°, and in pivot by 90°. It additionally helps 100x100mm VESA for wall/arm mounting.
