AOC Announces Availability of G2590FX Monitor: 24.5" 1080p TN, 144 Hz Freesync, 1 ms

AOC today announced availability of their budget-conscious G2590FX, their latest addition to the G90 series of monitors (and an improvement to their 6-month old G2590VXQ). The G2590FX has been developed with the budget-conscious gamer in mind. The usage of a TN panel keeps costs lower than other panel options would allow. At the same time, AOC looked towards offering high-quality gaming specs - such as the 1 ms response time, and the 144 Hz panel refresh rate with AMD Freesync support - to allow twitch-players to stay competitive. The 1080p resolution can almost be seen as a bonus, as it ensures the likelihood of users' graphics processing hardware to deliver those 144 Hz.

AOC is touting this monitor as having a 3-side-frameless structure, which does look that way in the media photos - though those usually have to be taken with a grain of salt. Display output connectors include 1x VGA, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, and 2x HDMI 1.4. The AOC G2590FX monitor is now available worldwide at an MSRP of £219.99 (direct conversion puts it at some €252 or $290, but US pricing will likely be lower.

I prefer TN to IPS these days. So no, TN should stay.

Well, one thing to give to TN is that it has lower - non existant amounts of ghosting on high refresh displays at a relatively low cost. IPS is generally a lot more expensive when you want a panel without ghosting.

Beyond that (the price argument as a whole) I don't see a lot of reasons to prefer TN.

Your complaining because she is popping out? :eek::kookoo::p

On topic, I have the previous version and I can't fault it, I'm certainly not going to upgrade just because they brought out a frameless model.

You prefer to be a mindless trend follower instead of comparing yourself. Have fun with your IPS glow and eye strain. I'll keep my TN, thank you.

Eye strain? Ehh? haha I get more eyestrain from looking at TN garbage panels.
This monitor is below 90 PPI, hahaha..

IPS glow is not worse than; Terrible colors, grey'ish blacks and bad viewing angles tho.
Also, TN suffers much more from overshoot. Most of these garbage panels even run 1080p, useless resolution, this is 2018.
TN is cheap for a reason, image quality is downright terrible. I wouldn't even use one if I got it for free.

I'll be enjoying my 27" 1440p/IPS/165Hz/Gsync with option for 65" 2160p/OLED/HDR, thank you.

I refuse to relegate my setup to TN myself. I read every one of these monitor announcements until I get to the specs that say TN and stop reading. It is a dead technology from my perspective, but still quite favorable for many budget-oriented gamers and basic office setups.

I don't really give a * about what you experience eye strain with. I told you that I get eye strain from IPS, be it because of the supersaturated colors or the IPS glow. I prefer how TN looks, exactly because it's more muted in the color department. I don't care about viewing angles on a monitor. Since when do you need to share a monitor with someone? You can keep calling it garbage in every sentence, because that really proves your emotional point.

Maybe you should get your eyes checked, must suck having to settle with terrible image quality.

It has nothing to do with settling. Like sound, things we see are subjective. We don't all like the same things or perceive them the same. Personally I prefer brighter screens for example.

Bad image quality is bad image quality. TN is cheap for a reason.

lol you are really losing this argument if all you have left is "terrible image quality". You can keep your candy-colored IPS, I'll keep my TN. It has the same amount of pixels and the same sharpness as any IPS, if not better. And I can actually use it without eye strain for much longer. So, who are you trying to convince here?

I present to you calibration devices, young one.
Now that I have this bizarrely expensive investment for something I don't even need with TN out of the way, tell me how to remove IPS glow. You can't? I thought so.

You're right. People accept terrible image quality because they have not seen good image quality (or can't afford better).

Acer Nitro monitors uses IPS panels for same price, and 144 Hz too...

You have zero experience with good image quality I see. I feel sorry for you.
Again, you should get your eyes checked.

Best thing to do is a side by side test after properly setting up displays.

Everytime I see a TN panel I feel sorry for the owner. So bad it hurts to look at.
