"Innovation Award" for the AGON PD27 @ eTeknix
eTeknix.com, a technology and review website from the UK recently published a review of the AOC AGON PD27. The monitor received their “Innovation Award”.
The tester praised both Porsche Design and AOC regarding this collaboration: “They’ve got a solid reputation in design and engineering, so for AOC to call upon that makes absolute sense. Of course, AOC is well known for their high-performance products too, and have many of the best monitors for gamers, designers and beyond. Given Porsche has a history of high-speed sports and supercars, you would expect similar high-performance from this monitor too.”
+ Exceptional design – “However, it’s immediately clear that AOC and Porsche went above and beyond on the overall design and aesthetics of this monitor. I mean, just look at it, it’s a work of art!”
+ Incredibly strong, ergonomic stand – “It’s one of the best built stands I’ve ever seen.”
+ “Blisteringly fast” 240 Hz refresh rate
+ 0.5 ms response time
+ FreeSync Premium Pro
+ HDR 400 certification
+ All-new OSD design
+ Powerful 5W speakers with built-in DTS sound
+ Remote control panel
+ 100% sRGB, 85% AdobeRGB and 94% DCI-P3 coverage
+ Decent enough colour accuracy with an average DeltaE of 1.41 and a maximum of 2.15
- Slightly off tone mapping
- Fairly big premium for additional aesthetics and build quality
- Hard to calibrate due to the aggressive 1000R curvature and HDR support
Verdict: “While you can get a 2560×1440 240 Hz monitor for less, it would simply be that… less. This monitor comes at a premium for a reason. It packs RGB lighting, a logo projector, an aluminium frame stand, clean bezels, a wireless desktop control panel and a fantastic OSD. Sure, they don’t make you game better, but they’re all just lovely things to have that add up to a premium experience. Of course, with HDR 400, powerful built-in speakers, a 1000R curved VA panel, and so much more. This is a monitor that takes its performance as seriously as its style!”
