AOC U28G2XU 4K/144Hz Review

Rating: 8.0.

We are back with another 4K/144Hz monitor review. What makes the AOC U28G2XU so intriguing is its price point – available for £589 on Amazon, as far as we can tell this is the cheapest 4K/144Hz screen on the market right now. For the money, you’re getting a 28-inch IPS panel, DisplayHDR 400 certification and a claimed 3ms grey-to-grey response time. What’s the catch?

Of all the high refresh-rate 4K monitors we have reviewed so far, the cheapest has been the Eve Spectrum, though that was still a not inconsiderable $799 (or $899 including the stand). The Aorus FV43U is more expensive still at over £950, while ASUS’ PG32UQX costs a cool 3 grand. You can see why the AOC U28G2XU, at £589, looks so appealing.

In this review, we put the screen through its paces with both real-world gaming tests and objective panel-focused benchmarks using our SpyderX colorimeter. Let’s find out if it is worth buying.
