The AOC CQ27G1 is a 27-inch curved display, 1440p monitor. It’s a great choice for the game thanks to its incredibly low input delay and quick response times, resulting in clear motion, and supports FreeSync’s Variable refresh Frequency (VRR) technology to reduce screen tear in games. With a VA panel, it has an excellent contrast ratio, resulting in deep black, but that comes at the expense of its viewing angles, which are poor and you lose the accuracy of the image when you see it to one side. The lack of HDR support may disappoint some people, but it has ready-to-use color accuracy and displays a wide range of colors in SDR. Although not very bright to combat glare in most rooms, it has decent reflex handling, so it will still work well in a room with medium light.

Decent monitor for mixed use. Players will appreciate the incredibly low entry delay and great response time, plus it supports FreeSync for an almost tearless gaming experience. The 27-inch screen is big enough for productivity, but viewing angles are scarce. It is a decent monitor for watching videos or editing photos, as it displays a wide range of colors and has great color accuracy ready to use, but does not support HDR content. The contrast ratio is ideal for displaying dark rooms and bright rooms; it doesn’t get very bright, but it has a decent handling of the reflection.

The AOC CQ27G1 is well for office use. The 27-inch and 1440p display is large enough to open multiple windows at once, but poor viewing angles mean it’s not ideal for sharing the screen with colleagues. However, the uniformity of gray is excellent, so solid colors, like on a web page or a document, look great. It is best suited for rooms with little light, as it has a decent reflection management and does not become very bright.

Great gaming monitor. The AOC CQ27G1 has an amazing low input delay, fast response time to its maximum refresh speed and supports FreeSync VRR technology to reduce tearing in games. The 1440p screen offers an immersive gaming experience, but unfortunately, viewing angles are poor, so it’s not recommended for cooperative games. However, it works well in the dark rooms thanks to its excellent contrast ratio, showing deep blacks.

The CQ27G1 is fine for multimedia use. The 1440p resolution shows refined details and the size of 27 inches is big enough to sit and enjoy your favorite videos. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support HDR and viewing angles are poor, so it’s not suitable for viewing content with others. However, it shows a wide range of colors and has an excellent contrast ratio, resulting in deep blacks when seen in dark rooms.

Decent for media creation. There’s plenty of screen space on the 27-inch curved monitor, and it has plenty of coverage of the Adobe RGB color space used in photo editing. Unfortunately, it is not ideal to share the screen with others because of its naughty viewing angles. However, it has an excellent gray uniformity, so that the screen does not darken around the edges. Photo:AOC
