Finding a quality gaming monitor can be tricky, as there is certainly a lot to pick from. However, when I reached out to AOC for suggestions on a monitor, they presented me with the AOC 27G2U. I wanted something that would make an ideal last-minute Christmas gift for around £200. I also thought, there’s a lot of people getting gaming PC’s and hardware at Christmas, perhaps they’ll want a new monitor in the new year. Again, the 27G2U springs to mind, as it’s likely to be priced competitively in any upcoming sales. That and many of the monitors I’ve reviewed recently have been far from affordable, it’s time to change gears a little.
While it may only have a 1920 x 1080p panel, that’s more than enough for most gamers. However, while it lacks 1440p or above, it makes up for it in other ways. You’ll find it comes with a stunning IPS panel, a 1ms response time, AMD FreeSync technology, and a stunning 144 Hz refresh rate that’s going to be amazing for gaming. It’s certainly ticking all the right boxes then and given you can get it for a little under £200, I suspect some of you are already looking at your wallet and the buy it now buttons.
