AOC 27P2C 27″ KVM IPS Monitor Review

Performance

Right out of the box, I found the picture to be very pleasing to the eye. It has rich colours but a little bit of a matte look to it rather than being overly shiny. I think that’s the coating on the panel, and it does a fantastic job of dismissing reflections. Even in a bright room like today, I found the panel very easy to view.

The monitor has good detail for a Full HD panel, and the pixel density is well suited to a 27″ display. But, of course, if you need more pixels, they make a 2K and even a 4K version of this monitor.

You can turn on ClearView technology too, which, as you can see, really sharpens up the image. This is the most aggressive setting, but you can tune it to suit your needs.

Full HD may not be my usual resolution, but the panel is a good side that I can comfortably work on one half and procrastinate on the other.

For movies, it’s really pretty great. I find the black levels are surprisingly excellent, and the frame rate handling is surprisingly great too. While the monitor can run up to 75Hz, setting it to a custom of 72Hz will mean you get no lost frames on 24FPS video content, if you’re planning on watching a lot of movies at least.

For gaming, however, that extra boost to 75Hz is nice. It’s not a huge leap over 60Hz, but you can tell the difference for sure. What really works, however, is just how good the panel looks. It may lack the resolution of my usual gaming monitor, but the lack of ghosting issues and the addition of vibrant colours and rich contrast goes a long way here.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
