The AOC G2590PX is essentially an affordable route to high-refresh gaming. Most screens offering 144Hz and some form of adaptive synchronisation are considerably more expensive than this, particularly if they opt for G-Sync rather than FreeSync, because the licensing and extra circuitry are reportedly quite a bit more expensive for the NVIDIA option.
You also get a decent array of input ports, an integrated USB 3 hub, and even 2W speakers. The OSD isn’t as extensive as the top-end gaming screens from AOC and others, but it has a few useful options that will benefit gamers in particular.
On the downside, the colour accuracy and gamut aren’t particularly outstanding, just reasonable for the money. So this will not be a screen that can moonlight for professional work when required. It’s very much a step up from cheap general-purpose TN panels, but not such a huge leap as the high-end gaming options.
That makes it a good middle ground. If you want high-refresh gaming but can’t quite stump up the cash for a pro gamer model, the AOC G2590PX is a sensible value choice.
