Result and general impression …
The AOC Agon AG271QX 27-inch WQHD monitor with FreeSync support and 144 Hz refresh rate as well as 1ms response time offers extensive ergonomic adjustment possibilities and numerous optical settings to get the best result out of the TN panel.
We would not call the AOC AGON AG271QX monitor a pure gaming monitor, but would like to certify it additionally definitely for office use. Although IPS panels have clear advantages in terms of colour quality and viewing angle, the performance and price of this TN panel is worth considering. And if you switch from a Full HD monitor to this WQHD monitor, you will be happy about the fine resolution anyway.
We don’t like the controls underneath the panel that much. Here, we would like to see more sophisticated, contactless controls from AOC. After all, an external control panel is also included with this monitor, which can be used to conveniently control the monitor. Furthermore, the integrated loudspeakers are of course not suitable for gaming, but we didn’t expect that from integrated monitor speakers.
All in all, we are very satisfied with the image quality, the workmanship, the high quality stand and can recommend the AOC Agon AG271QX for office use and gaming without hesitation.
Alternatively, AOC offers with their AOC AGON AG271QG a nVidia G-Sync counterpart with IPS panel, here we would suggest our detailed review of the smaller AOC AG241QG monitor.
