The AGON AG271QG includes an external power supply, plus cables for its two connections options, DisplayPort and HDMI. There is a minijack cable to route the microphone to the monitor, plus one for the USB 3.0 hub. A plate is included for VESA mounting.
The AG271QG looks identical to its AG271QX stable mate, with the same black bezel and red flashes. The stand comes in two parts and while the legs easily attach to the arm via a thumbscrew, the stand then has to be screwed to the panel with four screws, which is a bit of a pain when most other monitors offer a quick attachment and release mechanism.
Like the TN version, the screen swivels on its base by 20 degrees in each direction, can be tilted 3.5 degrees downwards or 21.5 degrees upwards. There is a 130mm range of height adjustment available, and the whole screen can also be rotated into portrait mode.
The section with display inputs looks a bit bare with just HDMI and DisplayPort. There is only a microphone output, unlike the AG271QX, which also has a line connection. Presumably this is because both DisplayPort and HDMI can be used to route audio signals, and there are no connections that would require separate audio.
We really liked the heaphone stand that folded out of the AG271QX, so it’s great to see that this is also found on the AG271QG. There are a couple of handy USB 3.0 ports placed here for easy connection, one of which supports fast charge, plus microphone input and combo microphone input/headphone output.
The upstream port and two downstream ports for the USB 3.0 hub are found on the right-hand side, and in front are the five buttons to control the OSD. Without the Quick Switch keypad, these are your sole method for accessing the screen’s configurations.
