AOC AGON Q27G2S-EU Gaming Monitor Launching This Month
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
AOC’s elite gaming division AGON has just revealed their latest gaming monitor, the AOC GAMING Q27G2S/EU. Gamers typically want the best from their monitors, with higher refresh rates, resolutions, and more advanced features, and it looks like this new one does not disappoint. The monitor comes with a 27″ panel, and it boasts a 10-bit IPS panel for a wide colour gamut coverage that should look great for gaming, movies, and even a bit of photo editing too. It comes with a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and boasts an impressive 165 Hz refresh rate, which should please all you competitive gamers out there.
At 2560×1440 and 165 Hz, it’s a nice middle-ground for gamers, not the higher resolution or refresh rate, but a sweet spot in terms of price and attainable performance from mid-to-high-end graphics cards. AOC GAMING’s Q27G2S/EU comes with an IPS panel, wide viewing angles and also ensures a high colour gamut coverage with exceptional colour accuracy:
“A great match for a current gaming PC, the QHD resolution of the Q27G2S/EU offers increased sharpness compared to Full HD monitors, enabling gamers to see crisper details, such as an opponent in the distance, much easier. The 165 Hz refresh rate (using DisplayPort input) of the Q27G2S/EU makes fast-paced, competitive gaming a breeze, and with the MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) function, the monitor achieves 1 ms MPRT, practically removing all ghosting artefacts.” – AOC
Gamers can also greatly benefit from both Adaptive-Sync and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatibility. This means smoother tear-free gameplay, which is important when you’re not maxing out that 165 Hz panel! The low input lag of the monitor makes the visual feedback to gamers’ inputs almost instant, mirroring their fast, twitchy reflexes.
The Q27G2S/EU comes with an ergonomic stand offering height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments so each user can adjust it for a healthy posture. With its 3-side frameless design, the Q27G2S/EU is a great monitor for multi-monitor setups, too, further enhanced by its VESA mount option. 2x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort inputs allow connecting multiple sources to the monitor, such as a PC, a second PC or laptop, a console etc., increasing flexibility in day-to-day tasks.
The OSD menu can be accessed via the tactile buttons underneath the panel, or by using the G-Menu software. The Q27G2S/EU’s gaming features include the Dial Point (crosshair overlay), AOC Game Colour (to increase/decrease saturation), and a framerate counter. On top, Flicker-free technology, which uses DC instead of PWM to adjust brightness, as well as a dedicated Low Blue mode make late-night gaming sessions easy on the eyes.

The AOC GAMING Q27G2S/EU will be available from November 2021 at the RRP of £279.99.
