The Chinese brand AOC unveils a new monitor with a miniLED panel. On paper, the advertised performances are impressive.
The miniLED stands out alongside the Oled or QD-Oled as a technology that must be carefully monitored. If the QD-Oled convinced us after our first test at Alienware, the case of the miniLED is a little more mixed. This is the technology used for one of the best screens we have seen on a laptop PC to date, but our opinion is a little more mixed on PC monitors from Samsung or AOC.
It is precisely the latter that returns to the front with a new miniLED monitor with a charming name: the AOC Agon AG274QZM. It very logically takes over from the AG274QXM, with new promises and a rising price.
Gaming performance and stunning visuals
On paper, the promises of this new monitor are strong. We are thus talking about a refresh rate of 240 Hz with a response rate of only 1 ms GtG and Nvidia G-Sync compatibility to finish convincing the players. But beyond just video game use, it is also a screen that should impress in visually ambitious games or in films and series thanks to Vesa DisplayHDR1000 certification. AOC even promises a peak brightness of 1200 nits thanks to miniLED technology and its 576 dimming zones.
The 27-inch IPS screen also offers a definition of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which should provide sufficient pixel density on this diagonal. On the connector side, there are two HDMI ports, two DisplayPort ports, a 4-port USB 3.2 hub and a USB-C port capable of charging a PC up to 65 W. The monitor also includes a KVM to change the source of the USB hub dynamically. Enough to automatically switch your keyboard and mouse between a desktop PC and a laptop PC. Rather practical.
AOC announces a launch in June 2022 at an indicative price of 1299.90 euros. It is a price in net increase since we found its predecessor, the AOC Agon ag274qxm at 1049 euros.
