AOC G2590PX 24.5in 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

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.

The AOC G2590PX is available from Amazon for £218.58 HERE.

Pros:

  • Good value for a 144Hz screen.
  • AMD FreeSync support.
  • Good range of inputs, including legacy VGA.
  • USB 3 four-port hub with Fast Charge.
  • Reasonable range of OSD options.
  • Lots of physical adjustment options.
  • Attractive design with thin bezels.

Cons:

  • Mediocre colour accuracy.
  • Mediocre gamut.
  • Confusing having two different sets of presets.

KitGuru says: The AOC G2590PX provides 144Hz FreeSync gaming for a keen price. It’s not perfect, but you’re not paying a huge premium either.
