AOC Agon AG352UCG6 Black Edition

When contemplating a premium monitor purchase, it pays to consider your most frequent usage scenario. The emergence of multiple panel technologies is such that some monitors are better suited to specific tasks; the viewing angles and colour reproduction of IPS tends to be favoured by creative types; the fast response time of TN panels plays well with gamers; and VA displays are a middle-ground of sorts, with better viewing angles than TN and typically impressive contrast. There's no one-panel-fits-all, and AOC reckons VA technology has improved to the extent that it now serves as a prime candidate for enthusiast gamers. Last year's Agon AG352UCG did a decent job of presenting ultra-wide gaming in a curved 35in form factor, and the manufacturer is hoping to go one better with a 2018 upgrade dubbed the Agon AG352UCG6 Black Edition.  "

Acer Predator Z35P 100Hz G-Sync Monitor Review

Recently we looked at the AOC AG352UCG which brought a different spin to the massive ultrawide gaming display by using an MVA LCD panel instead of the IPS panels used on the likes of the Asus PG348Q. Well, just like London buses, two have come along at once. The Acer Predator Z35P is identical to the AG352UCG in terms of raw specs, with the headline feature of both being an MVA LCD panel that has double the contrast of rival IPS models – 2000:1 compared to 1000:1. This sets these displays up as being particularly good for watching movies, as the deeper black levels make for an more immersive, realistic image. That of course applies double when you consider the ultrawide 21:9 aspect ratio of these screens. It’s a perfect match for most modern widescreen movies meaning you get no black bars and no wasted screen space.  "

Acer Predator XB241H 180Hz G-Sync Gaming Monitor Review

While every serious PC gamer might long for a 32in gaming monitor like the AOC AGON AG322QCX or HDR-capable Samsung C32HG70, the sad reality is that not everyone has the kind of cash (or desk space) required to get one of these beasts. But is this a reason to put up with an inferior gaming experience? At least on paper, the 24in Acer Predator XB241H gives you all the highlights of a ‘true’ gaming display, while eschewing the arguably frivolous extras such as RGB lighting, a USB hub or an external controller. It offers a speedy 180Hz overclocked refresh rate paired with a zippy 1ms response time and modest 1920 x 1080 resolution, which should make for a very smooth experience no matter how intense the action gets.  "

TV/Monitor: AOC Q2790PQU

AOC Q2790PQU

The importance of a good monitor in the workplace is often overlooked. The right panel can improve both comfort and productivity, so it's well worth nagging the boss to get the office outfitted with a new suite of displays. AOC has recently refreshed its professional range with five new models, including the Q2790PQU, in for review today. Priced at £339, the Q2790PQU resides nearer the premium end of AOC's professional portfolio but packs plenty of goodness to make it a worthwhile investment. For your money you get a 27in IPS panel, a QHD resolution, elegant presentation, integrated speakers, a versatile stand and accurate out-the-box image quality. After spending a week or so getting acquainted, we've found very little to dislike in what is ultimately a well-rounded display for everyday work.  "

TV/Monitor: Iiyama GB2760QSU-B1

Iiyama GB2760QSU-B1

Monitor manufacturers have understood that the gaming side of PCs continues to show momentum and growth year on year. It is therefore sensible to have at least a handful of gaming-orientated screens in your catalogue. Iiyama, a well-known name in the industry, duly has a solid number under its Red Eagle umbrella. Chief amongst these gaming protagonists is the lovely-named G-Master GB2760QSU-B1. Priced at almost £400 and backed by a standard three-year warranty, this 27in screen packs in a 2,560x1,440 TN panel armed with AMD's FreeSync technology at up to 144Hz, available over both HDMI and DisplayPort.  "

AOC AGON AG271UG 4K 60Hz G-Sync Monitor Review

The AOC AG271UG, is a 27-inch, 4K gaming monitor that has an IPS LCD panel and includes G-Sync technology. With it maxing out at 60Hz, it’s not a monitor aimed at fast-twitch gamers but instead combines excellent image quality, G-Sync, low input lag and a moderately fast response time to provide as smooth and rich a gaming experience as possible. Add in a premium design, plenty of features and a relatively low price, and it should be a tempting proposition for many. Is it an oxymoron to have a “gaming” monitor that can only run at 60Hz? Well, if your first priority is competitive FPS gaming then the simple answer is “yes”. If you’re looking for a gaming advantage, 60Hz just isn’t enough and, even if it were, running games at 4K resolutions will mean most graphics cards struggle to deliver a particularly high frame rate.  "

Acer Predator XB271HU bmiprz 144-165 Hz

If you were in the market for a high-quality gaming monitor last year, but weren't willing to go 4K or ultrawide (21:9), your choice came down to one of two models - the Acer Predator XB271HU bmiprz or its direct competitor, the Asus ROG Swift PG279Q. Both are based on a 27" IPS panel and offer a refresh rate of 144 Hz that can be overclocked to 165 Hz by changing a single setting. Their spec sheets are pretty much the same, which has both sport a native resolution of 2560x1440 (WQHD or 1440p, if those terms are more to your liking) and come equipped with NVIDIA G-Sync support. Both also have the same maximum brightness and static contrast ratio (350 nits and 1000:1 respectively), a couple USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4 connectivity, a pair of barely useful stereo speakers, and a couple built-in technologies to improve overall gaming performance and everyday usage.  "

Philips Brilliance BDM4037UW

Can a PC monitor ever be too big? That's a question we hadn't really considered until we got to spend some quality time with Philips' latest 40in behemoth, the BDM4037UW. We've played with our fair share of 34in screens over the years, but 40in is a big step up and the increase in size presents a few unexpected challenges. A display of this magnitude will dwarf most desks, and if you tend to sit close to the screen, you'll need to get used to looking up, down and side to side in order to see the full picture.  "

LG OLED65E6P OLED Ultra HDTV Review

I vividly remember plasma displays, and I mourned their passing. But even before 4K came along, LCD TVs—with their brighter images, lighter weight, lower energy consumption, and, toward the end, cheaper prices—were putting a full-court press on plasma technology. The best LED-backlit local-dimming LCDs can now equal or exceed the performance of plasmas in what were their main calling cards: black level and shadow detail. But now, even LCDs have competition. OLED TVs arrived just about the same time that plasmas faded from the scene. So far, they’re offered only by LG, whose current models are much reduced in price from earlier designs—though they’re still not bargain-basement specials.  "

ASUS Designo Curve MX34VQ 34in Curved Monitor

The future of screens appears to be curved. We’re seeing quite a lot of new products that eschew the straight and narrow now, particularly when combined with an aspect wider than 16:9. The latest to arrive on the KitGuru review desk is the ASUS Designo Curve MX34VQ. This is a very attractively styled 34in screen, with a 21:9 aspect, and 3,440 x 1,440 resolution. The resolution and size makes the MX34VQ quite similar in specification to the Samsung CF791. However, although both use VA panel technology and offer a 100Hz refresh, the ASUS unit is much more mildly curved, with 1800R rather than the Samsung’s much more pronounced 1500R, so this won’t be exactly the same panel underneath. There’s also no FreeSync or G-Sync included.  "
