27″ curved gaming monitor AOC CQ27G2 Monitor Review

The AOC CQ27G2 has a good overall construction quality. Although almost entirely made of plastic, it looks decently solid. There are no major gaps and the bottom of the border is uniform. AOC does not appear to have made any changes to the overall construction compared to the AOC CQ27G1.
The AOC CQ27G2 has good ergonomics, with great height adjustment, a good revolving range and a wide range of inclinations. It doesn’t rotate, but this is normal for curved monitors.
This is a outstanding monitor for multimedia. The AOC CQ27G2’s 27″ and 1440p display is ideal for watching videos, thanks to its high-resolution display, high contrast ratio and excellent uniformity. It has decent reflex management, but it may not be bright enough if it finds you in a room with lots of natural light. It also has disappointing viewing angles, so it’s not a good choice if you like watching videos with friends.AOC CQ27G2 Monitor ReviewThe AOC CQ27G2 is a very good monitor for most uses. The low entry delay and great response time provide a great overall gaming experience. It’s also a decent choice for office or media use, but limited viewing angles might be a problem for some users. Although it has decent reflection management, it can’t be very bright, so it may not be the best choice if it’s in a bright room.
The AOC CQ27G2 is a decent monitor for office use. The 27″ 1440p display is ideal for multitasking as it can work comfortably with multiple open windows and has good text clarity. It has decent reflection management, but it may not be bright enough if there’s plenty of natural light. The stand has a good range of ergonomic settings, so it should be convenient for most people.
This is a great gaming monitor. The AOC CQ27G2 has a quick response time to the maximum refresh rate, similar to other 144 Hz VA monitors we tested, but there is a noticeable streak of motion in some dark scenes. It has low input delay for a responsive gaming experience and supports variable refresh rate Freesync technology for an almost tear-free gaming experience.AOC CQ27G2 Monitor ReviewThe AOC CQ27G2 is a decent monitor for media creation. The 27″ 1440p display makes it easier to see more of your work at once. It has an exceptional range of SDR colors, with great Adobe RGB color space coverage and excellent uniformity without bleeding the noticeable color. Unfortunately, it’s best to enjoy it directly from the front due to disappointing viewing angles, so it’s not a great choice if you often share the screen with a colleague or customer.
The AOC CQ27G2 is a high-quality 27-inch and 1440p monitor with a VA panel. It has a fantastic design, with a wide stand that supports the monitor well and good ergonomics. Like most VA monitors, it has a high native contrast ratio, which offers deep blacks, but this comes at the expense of viewing angles, which are disappointing. It offers a great overall gaming experience, with low input delay and fast response times, but like many VA monitors we’ve tested, there’s remarkable movement in dark scenes, which can be a distraction.AOC CQ27G2 Monitor Review Choosing the room is important with this monitor as it can not be very bright, so glare could be a problem in a bright room. Although it has a high contrast ratio, it has poor black uniformity, so it is not even a great choice for a black room.  Photo:AOC
