AOC Unveils AGON AG273QZ, a 240Hz 27-incher with DisplayHDR 400 and FreeSync Pro

If you overlook the fact that it uses a TN-film panel, the new AGON AG273QZ has some otherwise impressive specs relevant to gamers. This 27-inch monitor offers WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution, with staggering 0.5 ms response time, 240 Hz refresh-rate, support for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, and DispplayHDR 400 certification. The panel is mounted onto a stylish tripod stand, and comes with RGB LED embellishments behind. Other key panel specs include 170°/160° viewing-angles (H/V), 1000:1 static contrast ratio with dynamic mega-contrast, and a WLED backlight that uses a non-PWM method of dimming (flicker-free). Inputs include HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4, from which you need at least DP1.2 HBR2 to support 1440p @ 240 Hz. The company didn't reveal pricing.

You can buy it on amazon from staggering 500 euro. Not too bad.

A 27" TN panel for that price? Does it come with a computer built-in?

1440P @ 240Hz doesn't come cheap. This is one of the few in that category now on the market.

Hi,
Last aoc monitor I got the power adapter looked like it came from a toy store it was so cheap and loose.
I'll never buy another from them unless I can see it in a store and see how loose it is.

TN is the best for fast-paced gaming and its the most logical option to go for 240hz.
Its the least blurry technology atm.

Everyone likes dumping on HDR400 but what it tells me is that it takes HDR signal. I'm not ready to make the full jump into a true HDR setup, but I'm tired of HDR content looking washed out and broken on my SDR-only monitors. HDR400 will at least make that content look as good as SDR content.

You couldn't be more wrong about this. HDR400 (and family) does not guarantee anything about the input (that's HDR10 and friend's family job). HDR400 guarantees next to nothing compared to a generic monitor.

Edit: Here is what I said from a more reliable source: https://www.tftcentral.co.uk/blog/why-your-hdr-monitor-is-probably-not-hdr-at-all-and-why-displayhdr-400-needs-to-go/
