AOC Announces 16-inch USB-C Monitor (I1601FWUX)

AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the AOC 16" class USB-C Monitor (I1601FWUX), with ultra-slim IPS panel for extreme portability. The USB-C monitor is slim and lightweight to be easily used on-the-go. The widescreen monitor receives both power and signal via a single USB-C cable for plug-and-play connectivity. It does not require a dedicated power cord or VGA cable, and comes with a foldable flexi-stand for maximum flexibility. This makes it perfect for accountants working at a client's office or a road warrior working from his hotel room. It is available now at Amazon for $199 (MSRP).

Designed with a piano-black glossy finish, this USB-C monitor has a 15.6" display with a 700:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time and a full HD resolution at 60Hz. The IPS panel provides wide viewing angles and has better color uniformity than TN panels. The USB-C monitor also utilizes AOC's LowBlue Mode. Through the software, the monitor decreases harmful blue light by controlling color temperature while keeping the vivid color. At 15.6 inches and about 1.81lbs, the monitor is extremely portable. Its small form factor makes it perfect for business presentations, travelling or dual-monitor setups on-the-go. It easily fits into a backpack or its own included carrying case.

AOC Unveils the Q3279VWF Monitor: 31.5", 1440p, 60 Hz, FreeSync

AOC is introducing another monitor to their already extensive lineup, in the form of the Q3279VWF. This monitor, whose product name reads "unintelligible", has an interesting feature set: it counts with a 31.5", 2560 x 1440 MVA-based panel, which ticks at a 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response time. The refresh rate may seem a tad low for users used to über-fast 144 Hz panels, but this one should actually be a more interesting mainstream monitor option, since the lower refresh rate doesn't require an extremely expensive, high-end graphics card option. The adoption of AMD's FreeSync should keep those lower refresh rates in check with added fluidity and no screen tearing, besides keeping the price lower than equivalent NVIDIA offerings (of which this particular editor wishes there was a 60 Hz option to choose from.)

The monitor delivers a 10-bit experience, through usage of an 8-bit panel that achieves 10-bit "virtual" color depth due to the usage of FRC technology. Brightness is a sore point for this one, though; at only 250 cd/m², it's one of the lowest we've seen recently, and definitely wouldn't allow for true display of HDR content - not even on AMD's somewhat relaxed 400 nits brightness requirement. Display options include 1x VGA, 1x DVI Dual Link, 1x HDMI 1.4, and 1x DisplayPort 1.2. Expect this monitor to go on sale this November, with a MSRP of £249 (likely $299).

AOC Announces Retail Availability of AGON Curved QHD Gaming Monitor

AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the newest member of the Agon monitor collection, the premium line of AOC gaming monitors. The AG322QCX is a curved 32-inch, QHD gaming monitor with a refresh rate of 144Hz, 4ms response time and AMD FreeSync technology. This monitor is made for enthusiast and competitive esports gamers, like AOC partner, Team Liquid, allowing them to race through games without stutter, screen tearing and motion blur. The AG322QCX will be available at Microcenter for $429.99 MSRP.

The 32-inch monitor features a 2560x1440 QHD screen with a 1800R curve. The curved VA panel offers vibrant colors for a more exciting and immersive visual experience to be enjoyed while gaming. The AG322QCX's curve conforms to the way the eye sees and helps reduce eye fatigue. Team Liquid, winners of The International Dota 2 Tournament, use AOC monitors to prepare for competitions, as they compete at the highest level of esports.

AOC to Launch AGON³ Gaming Monitors With 0.5 ms Response Time in 2018

AOC has come forward to announce that they'll be shipping gaming monitors under their AGON³ gaming brand that boast of 0.5 ms (yup, you read that right) response time come 2018. The new monitors, based on an AUO TN panel, will come in curved 27", offer 2560 x 1440 resolution at a 144 Hz refresh rate, and will be available with either G-Sync or FreeSync 2 support. Users of AMD-enabled FreeSync 2 will be left happier than their NVIDIA counterparts: AOC's FreeSync 2 monitor will not only support HDR and a wider color gamut, but will also retail for €100 less (€599) than its non HDR-enabled NVIDIA counterpart (€699). Granted, AMD's HDR requirements are much lower than NVIDIA's 1000cd/m² minimum luminance for HDR - which means this AU Optronics panel, with its 400cd/m² peak luminance, makes the cut for AMD's HDR standards. Remember - not all HDR is equal.

Asked about AOC's new panels, AOC's Afonso Clemente said that "We were talking with AUO and they have a new panel (...) Up until now curved monitors were either IPS or VA, which is ok, but the response time was not so great. There's always some ghosting, some blurring. But now there are curved panels from AU Optronics that allow 0.5 ms response time."

AOC Introduces the AGON AG251FG - 24.5", 1080p 240 Hz or 1440p 144 Hz, TN, G-SYNC

Update: It would seem reservations regarding the monitor's conservative resolution were right in the money. New details have come to light in that this monitor from AOC apparently supports two display modes: a 1440p, 144 Hz presentation, favoring resolution and graphics quality, or the aforementioned 1080p 240 Hz. This is interesting, offering a solution for gamers who play both competitive shooters and eye-candy-filled games, opting for blazing fast refresh rates or a higher resolution. It remains to be seen whether graphics quality takes a bigger hit than is solely limited to the decreased resolution: using a monitor ona non-native resolution decreases graphical quality, sometimes noticeably so. Still, this is a flexible solution, and I wouldn't be surprised to see users choosing this solution exactly because of the two different modes of operation.

AOC has added a new monitor to its line-up, which seems to be especially geared towards competitive gamers in twitch-shooters. Its astonishing 240 Hz refresh rate, 1 ms response time, and G-SYNC support are its greatest selling points, I would wager, though I bid you good luck in running most modern games at such frame-rates. To achieve this kind of screen refresh rates, AOC had to compromise in other areas, though: the AG251FG's 1080p resolution seems somewhat limited, as does the usage of a TN panel.

AOC Introduces the PDS241 and PDS271 Monitors - Designed by Porsche

AOC has partnered up with cr-designer extraordinaire Porsche to come up with sleek designs for two new monitors on its range. The PDS241 and PDS217 monitors both feature a (slightly yawn-inducing) 1080p AH-IPS panel, at 24 and 27" respectively. These come in thin as razors at 5.2mm, sporting a three-way-frameless design.

Apart from the sleek design and the stand (which is a hit-or-miss aesthetic choice from my perspective), there is nothing groundbreaking on offer here. You get technologies such as AOC's SuperColor WCG (100% sRGB coverage, and 90% coverage of the NTSC color space), flicker-free operation and low blue-light technology to help combat eyestrain. And these monitors won't set you back that much, at around $240 for the 24", and $330 for the 27", though you really are paying a pretty penny for that Porsche-christened design pedigree.

AOC Launches the C4008VU8: 40", Curved, 4K, 10-bit Color

AOC has been one of the most aggressive companies when it comes to launching new displays, with its gaming "AGON" series seeing the addition of multiple monitors in the past few months. The new C4008VU8 doesn't quite tick the gaming aesthetics box, however, which isn't all that bad. Personally, I much prefer its clean, no-frills design, absent of some over-design features.

The panel seems to be an interesting one, nonetheless, with its 40" size, 16:9, 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution on a 10-bit MVA panel, with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Its 5 ms response time is relatively good, though the absence of any VRR (variable refresh-rate) technology such as AMD's FreeSync or NVIDIA's G-SYNC is puzzling. The lack of HDR support, however, is kind of a downer, but a necessity when one considers the display's maximum 300 cd/m² brightness. The panel boasts an 85% NTSC wide color gamut with 1.07 billion colors, with 178º horizontal and vertical viewing angle on a 1800R curved display. As for adjustments, the monitor can only be tilted: 5 degrees down, and 13.5 degrees up. Connection-wise, the AOC C4008VU8 boasts 1x HDMI 2.0, 1x HDMI 1.4, 2x DisplayPort 1.2, and 1x VGA connector (only 8 months ago I would be using such a connection myself, so I really shouldn't judge. There are legacy use cases, after all, and more options are always better.) There are also 4x USB 3.0 ports available, one of which can be used for fast charging devices. The AOC is available with a MSRP of $899, though you may find some retailers selling these for less already.

AOC Intros Two New AGON CX Series Curved Gaming Monitors

AOC today introduced two new AGON CX series curved gaming monitors in the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio, the 32-inch AG322QCX, and the 27-inch AG272FCX. The two feature VA (vertical alignment) panels, which serve up 144 Hz refresh-rates, and support for AMD FreeSync technology (over DisplayPort). The monitors look "gaming grade," boasting glossy red+black color schemes, and an acrylic tripod stand. Controls are handled by an AOC QuickSwitch RF remote control. The AG322QCX offers native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and inputs that include two each of DisplayPort and HDMI connectors, with one D-Sub (VGA); while the AG272FCX is Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), featuring two DisplayPorts and one HDMI, besides the D-Sub. Slated for May 2017, the AG272FCX is expected to be priced at 449€, and the AG322QCX at 599€ (including taxes).

AOC Q2781PS/Q2781PQ Announced: Swarovsky Crystals To Go With Your QHD Monitor

AOC has just introduced two new monitors to their line-up, offering some respectable, if ordinary, specs. The Q2781PS and the Q2781PQ are both 27" screens featuring AH-IPS panels running at a 2560×1440 resolution, with up to 350 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 5 ms response time and a 60 Hz refresh rate. AOC claims that the Q2718PQ and the Q2718PS displays can reproduce 16.77 million colors at full sRGB coverage.

These monitors break some ground on the aesthetics part of the equation, though, with extremely thin bezels and an asymmetrical L-shaped stand that must be one of the most tastefully designed I've ever seen. One thing differentiates both panels, though, and this is where we cautiously ravage the "acquired tastes" label: while the AOC Q2781PQ has a silver stand and a regular black back panel, the AOC Q2781PS comes with a rose gold base, and a back panel decorated with Swarovski crystals.

AOC Announces the Agon AG352UCG: Ultrawide 35", 3440*1440, 100 Hz and G-Sync

Joining the already considerable plethora of gaming-oriented monitor offers from the company, AOC has recently announced the launch of the Agon AG352UCG. As it happens with AOC's line of monitors, this one also has quite respectable - and dare I say near-perfect specifications.

It is a 35" behemoth of a monitor, though its ultrawide aspect ratio will undoubtedly make it look smaller due to the lower verticality of the display than in other screen formats; packs a 21:9, 3440*1440 AU Optronics VA panel with 100Hz refresh rate (and 4ms response time), as well as G-Sync support to boot. The panel boasts 100% sRGB coverage, and a 2000R curvature ratio.

AOC Reveals P2779VC 27-Inch PLS Monitor With Qi Charging Capabilities

In a bid to help you remove at least one of those pesky charging cables from your life, AOC has revealed a 27-inch PLS monitor which includes a Qi base station on its stand, enabling you to charge compatible smartphones. In doing this, AOC joins the likes of Samsung in offering monitors with wireless charging capabilities.

The P2779VC features a 1920x1080 resolution PLS panel, one VGA input, and two HDMI 1.3 inputs. The panel boasts a 178-degree viewing angle, true 8-bit color depth, and a 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio, pointing it more towards color accuracy than other metrics. When it comes to gaming, it's certainly not at the top of screen responsiveness with a quoted response time of around 5ms, but it certainly isn't impossible to game on.

The P2779VC will debut in the US in December, with AOC saying it will be stocked by Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg, with an MSRP of $250.

AOC Announces the AGON AG251FZ 25-inch 240Hz FreeSync Monitor

AOC's AGON line of PC monitors has been increasingly added to by the company - which usually signifies strong sales and brand recognition. In trying to cater to an even more diverse consumer base, AOC has now added a new offer to their AGON line of gaming monitors: the AG251FZ.

The AG251FZ 25" is a 16:9 ratio monitor, which comes in at the still-dominating 1920*1080 resolution, sporting a TN-type panel with a 1ms Grey-to-grey response time which allows it achieve a 240Hz refresh rate. The panel offers 16.7 million colors, brightness of 400cd/m2, contrast ratio of 1000:1, and pretty decent viewing angles of 170/160. On top of that, the monitor also includes AMD's royalty-free FreeSync (active from 48Hz towards the 240Hz maximum refresh rate), with 1x HDMI 2.0 and 1x DisplayPort 1.2a adaptive sync compatible inputs, as well as more legacy 1x DVI and 1x VGA inputs. The monitor also features a connectivity hub, sporting 4 x USB 3.0, Audio out/in, and Microphone in/out ports.

AOC Announces the AGON AG352QCX 35-inch Curved Gaming Monitor

AOC today announced availability of the AGON AG352QCX, its premium 35-inch curved gaming monitor. The monitor features a VA (vertical alignment) ultra-wide display panel with 2560 x 1080 pixels resolution, 4 ms response time, 2000:1 contrast-ratio, and a staggering 200 Hz refresh-rate. Its gaming credentials are further bolstered with support for AMD FreeSync technology. The monitor takes input from DisplayPort 1.2a (needed for FreeSync), HDMI 2.0, and D-Sub. Other features include a 4-port USB 3.0 hub, a headset stand, and 5W stereo speakers. Expect this monitor to be priced around the $600 mark.

AOC Announces the AG241 Series Fast WQHD Monitors

AOC late last week unveiled the AG241 line of 24-inch monitors featuring high refresh-rates, and WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolutions, under its AGON brand targeted at PC gamers. The series includes two models, the AG241QG and the AG241QX. Both displays feature 23.8-inch TN-film LCD panels by AU Optronics, and are visually similar for the most part, except two key features. The AG241QG offers up to 165 Hz refresh-rates and supports NVIDIA G-SYNC technology; while the AG241QX offers refresh-rates of up to 144 Hz, and supports AMD FreeSync technology.

Both models offer viewing angles of up to 170°/160° (H/V), 1 ms response time (GTG), 1000:1 static contrast ratios, a rheostat-based WLED illumination (flicker-free), active blue-light reduction, and matte anti-glare screen surfaces. Gamer-specific features such as display presets that are specific to gameplay type (genre-specific), a retractable headset hook on the side, VESA wall-mount, and a 4-port USB 3.0 hub. Both monitors take input from DisplayPort 1.2/1.2a and HDMI connectors. Available from November, the AG241QG is expected to be priced at £519, and the AG241QX at £389.

AOC Officially Unveils AGON Gaming Brand

AOC, a global leader in display technology, is announcing its new gaming brand: "AGON". All future AOC gaming product releases will be under the AGON name. AGON will also encompass AOC's future gaming-related activities and social media voice. Some of AOC's existing gaming displays, previously grouped together with other products, will be rebranded under AGON.

The name AGON represents AOC's commitment to the PC gaming segment and the spirit of competitive gaming. AGON is an ancient Greek word (ἀγών), which refers to "a struggle or contest". The name is also intended to be an acrostic that represents AOC's vision for AGON.

AOC Unveils the AGON Series AG271QX 27-Inch Gaming Monitor

AOC, one of the top global brands in the display market, recently presented their premium line of gaming monitors - the AGON series. Its first model is the 27" (68.6 cm) AG271QX powered by a high-speed TN panel at a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It delivers ultra-smooth images with a 144 Hz refresh rate and a response time of 1 ms, supported by Adaptive-Sync Technology (FreeSync compatible, at a 30-144 Hz range) that reduces stuttering and tearing - focusing on the best gaming performance.

Gamers that play competitively not only rely on fast and smooth images, but also on instantaneously-executed commands and perfect vision in every situation. The AOC Low Input Lag mode disables picture post-processing on the monitor's electronics and, therefore, accelerates the command pass-through from mouse, keyboard and gamepad to result in immediate actions while the AOC Shadow Control enables gamers to quickly adjust contrast in overly dark or bright areas without sacrificing the quality of well-balanced areas across the rest of the screen.

These include the 35-inch curved C3583FQ, the 28-inch 4K U2879VF, and the stylish 27-inch I2781FH, pictured in that order. AOC teased the three without putting out too many specs. The I2781FH is likely a 1080p or 1440p display, with a stylish, single-piece metal stand, and HDMI inputs. The U2879VF features a 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) panel, DisplayPort 1.2a (supports AMD FreeSync), and HDMI 2.0. The C3583FQ is a bit of an enigma, this 35-incher features a curved panel of a yet unknown resolution, but which supports 160 Hz refresh-rates.

AOC Unveils U3277PQU and Q3277PQU 32-inch Monitors

AOC unveiled the U3277PQU and the Q3277PQU 32-inch monitors. Both models look identical, but differ with resolutions.

The U3277PQU is expected to be priced around US $800, and the Q3277PQU around $500.

AOC Intros U2870VQE 28-inch Ultra HD Monitor

AOC introduced the U2870VQE, a 28-inch monitor that offers 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) native resolution. It embeds a non-glare TN-film panel, with 1 ms response time, 30-bit color (1.07 billion colors), 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast ratio.

AOC Intros Q2577PWQ 25-inch WQHD Monitor

AOC rolled out the Q2577PWQ, a 25-inch monitor offering WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) native resolution. The monitor features an IPS LCD panel with LED illumination, which uses a non-PWM method for adjusting brightness (and is hence flicker-free). Other key specs include 5 ms response time, 178°/178° viewing angles, 350 cd/m² maximum brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast ratio. Display inputs include DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, and D-Sub. In-built 2W stereo speakers, a 4-port USB hub, with two USB 3.0 downstream ports (one of which is a high-current port) and two USB 2.0 ports; and a maximum power consumption figure of 55W, round off the package. Its stand allows for height, tilt, and 90° rotation to portrait mode. AOC didn't announce price, although availability is slated for August 2015.

AOC Unveils the Q2778VQE 27-inch WQHD Monitor

With a WQHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a super short response time of just 1 ms, the 27″ (68.6 cm) AOC Q2778VQE is not only ideal for enjoying fast-paced games and movies in full detail. Professional users also benefit greatly from the impressive screen real estate, e. g. while working with complex multi-window applications or high-resolution imagery.

Display specialist AOC's new WQHD monitor AOC Q2778VQE boasts a 27″ (68.6 cm) TN panel with an aspect ratio of 16:9, wide viewing angles (170° horizontal / 160° vertical) and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. This way, computer games can be enjoyed in significantly richer detail than with standard Full HD monitors. In addition, entertainment users in particular benefit greatly from the extremely short response time of just 1 ms, which virtually eliminates ghosting effects. This way, players and movie enthusiasts can enjoy crisp and clear images even during fast-paced, action-packed scenes. The monitor's super-fast DisplayPort input option is an ideal choice to transmit high resolution content in a particularly smooth way.

AOC's New Anti-Blue Light Technology Helps Protect Eyes While at the PC

AOC, a worldwide leader in display technology, is rolling out an innovative and patent-pending, solution called Anti-Blue Light technology to protect users against the damaging effects of blue light from LED-backlit computer screens. Like Ultra-Violet light waves (UV) from the sun, extended overexposure to shortwave blue light (380-450 nm) from LED-backlit devices can be a contributor to vision impairments.

The new technology, Anti-Blue-Light (ABL), enables users to enjoy a quality picture, brightness and color fidelity without subjecting their eyes to the prolonged detrimental impact of shortwave blue light exposure. The technology will be incorporated into new AOC 76V Series Anti-Blue Light displays announced this year.
