The AOC AGON AG271QX is a capable gaming monitor. It’s not as full on in terms of focus and features as the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q, but this is still a screen aimed primarily at a specific use, rather than a multi-purpose display that is also good for games.
Beyond gaming, we would have liked to see more preset options for other types of activity. You can, of course, use the custom slots to create your own favourite collection of settings that address these areas. With three of these custom slots, and the excellent external Quick Switch keypad, choosing between your custom modes is instantaneous.
The Quick Switch keypad is the most unique feature here. Otherwise, image quality is good but not exceptional. With 144Hz refresh and Adaptive Sync available, you should be able to enjoy the smoothest possible frame rate experience that your graphics hardware can deliver.
The AOC AGON AG271QX is available at Overclockers UK for £395.99 (at the time of writing). Whilst this isn’t exactly a bargain as 27in screens go, you do get a good range of features for a mid-range price, making this a promising debut for the AGON brand from AOC.
