AOC 24G2U 24in 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

The AOC 24G2U seals the company’s position as a vendor of quality mainstream gaming screens. This a top performer, includes a good selection of features, and isn’t overly expensive.

As with most IPS panels, the colour accuracy is the performance high point, but there’s a comprehensive range of presets if you don’t fancy adjusting things yourself. These are aimed at mainstream tasks and, of course, the main genres of gaming. Alternatively, there’s a decent selection of custom parameters to roll your own gaming settings. With 144Hz refresh and FreeSync 2, all the essential requirements for comfortable gaming are met.


You get a decent range of video inputs that also includes legacy VGA, although not USB-C. There’s a four-port USB 3 hub, and built-in speakers. You also get a comprehensive range of ergonomic adjustments.

Although the £180 price doesn’t put this screen anywhere near the budget category, it’s not a huge premium either. If you’re after a gaming screen that hits the main sweet spots then the AOC 24G2U is well worth buying.

The AOC 24G2U is available from Overclockers UK for £179.99.

Pros:

  • Excellent colour accuracy, and even better when calibrated.
  • 144Hz and FreeSync 2.
  • Good range of presets, including for gaming.
  • Useful gaming OSD options.
  • Plenty of ergonomic adjustment.
  • Four-port USB 3.0 hub.
  • Reasonable price.

Cons:

  • Questionable colour uniformity.
  • No USB-C connection.
  • Odd gamma presets.

KitGuru says: The AOC 24G2U provides some solid gaming features and great colour accuracy for a reasonable price.
