As we have come to expect from 1440p gaming monitors is the inclusion of 144hz refresh rate and a staggering 1ms response time. To keep costs down, AOC has included Adaptive-Sync Technology which is FreeSync compatible within the 30-144hz range. The monitor retains key features from other AOC monitors such as Low Blue Light mode which helps reduce eye strain in long usage periods.
The monitor features all of the creature comforts that would have come to expect from a gaming monitor such as height adjustable base, tilt, and swivel. Something that isn’t included very often with a monitor is an easy grab handle to make LAN trips easier and a simple headphone holder for when it isn’t in use. The base includes simple etch markings for users to quickly identify their preferred settings.
Unique to this monitor is the AOC QuickSwitch controller. It enables users to quickly interchange between Game Mode presets, modes and menus without having to reach for the screen.
This is a very striking monitor with an obvious focus on the gaming market. With a recommended price point of £479, it is a little on the expensive side, but it is the perfect solution for those who like to take their monitors to Bring Your Own Computer LAN events. This monitor will be available to purchase from retailers from June 2016.
