The AOC AGON AG273QX has 2 mounting options: Firstly, it can be operated using the supplied stand or the VESA mounting bracket. The dimensions here are 75x75mm. Since the AG273QX has a lighting on the back, we decided to use the supplied stand.
The base of the stand is optically narrow and filigree. Nevertheless it is very heavy, which shows its high quality workmanship.
To assemble everything, we take the monitor and place it on the screen. As you can see, in the middle of the recess for the stand are the slots for the VESA mount.
In the next step, the stand is simply inserted and snapped down. This can be done very well and easily by hand.
Next, we place the foot offset on the stand …
… and then turn it to the right. Then only the fixing screw needs to be tightened. That’s all there is to it.
When fully assembled, the AG273QX looks like this.
Of course, we can rotate and tilt it any way we want …
… up to 90 degrees.
Now let’s take a look at the connection. On the left side we find 5 USB connections. The USB Type-B connection is used to connect the monitor to the PC via an optional cable. Once this is done, you can use the other 4 USB Type-A connectors as a hub. Furthermore we find a jack socket for the microphone input, a headphone output and the power connection for the power cable.
On the right side we find 2 HDMI, as well as 2 Display Port connection. Furthermore, the microphone output and the micro-USB socket for the cable remote control are located here.
A great optical feature when gaming at night is the backlight. This can be adjusted in all possible colours thanks to RGB lighting. We have left the default setting in red.
Finally, there is an interesting discovery on the bottom, namely the 3D button for OSD operation.
After all the theory and technical data, we now come to practical testing.
