    Review of AOC C24G2U @ Rock Paper Shotgun

    Rock Paper Shotgun, a popular website (over 6 million visits per month) from the UK with game and hardware reviews published a review of the AOC C24G2U.


    The editor describes the monitor as: “Our new cheap curved monitor of choice”.

    She also specifically praised the colour accuracy of its colour profiles: “I was pretty impressed with all of the C24G2U's colour profiles – which is probably the first time I've ever said such a thing. […] With the C24G2U, however, all six of its additional gaming modes – from its dedicated FPS, RTS and Racing modes to its three customisable Gamer profiles – are just as accurate and pleasing to look at as its default settings. They all covered at least 99% of the sRGB colour gamut, and the FPS mode actually covered a tad more than the standard Eco mode, stretching to 99.5%. That's practically unheard of, and it means you don't have to compromise on image quality if you want to make use of its special gaming modes.”

    + 165 Hz refresh rate

    + Sleek, slim design

    + Rich, vibrant colour out of the box thanks to VA panel

    + Near perfect sRGB coverage (99.1%), impressive HDR-grade DCI-P3 coverage (89.1%)

    + All gaming profiles in the OSD are accurate and pleasant to look at

    + Superb contrast ratio (3631:1) and lovely low black levels of just 0.06 cd/m²

    + AMD FreeSync Premium with 48-165 Hz range, also Nvidia G-sync compatible


    - Not the brightest screen (260 cd/m²)

    Verdict: „There's really nothing to complain about with the AOC C24G2U, especially when its £180 / 90 price is so easy on the wallet. Whether you're looking to add a second monitor to your gaming setup or you're upgrading from a very old one, the C24G2U is a great pick for high refresh rate 1080p gaming, and our new curved budget gaming monitor of choice. Meanwhile, if it's a flat gaming monitor you're looking for, AOC's similarly-priced 144Hz 24G2U […] is still a great alternative.“
