"HEXUS APPROVED" seal for the AOC AGON AG353UCG @ HEXUS.net
HEXUS.net, a hardware review website from the UK has just published a review of the AOC AG353UCG on its website. The monitor received the “Approved” seal from HEXUS.
“The official arrival of AOC's Agon AG353UCG does little to change what we already know about these ultra-high-end 35in G-Sync Ultimate panels. In keeping with prior implementations from Acer and Asus, the Agon has the ability to impress with an ultrawide 3,440x1,440 resolution, refresh rates of up to 200Hz, and 512 local dimming zones that contribute to one of the better PC HDR experiences. Such attributes make the AG353UCG an intriguing proposition for enthusiasts who choose to experience the very best that PC gaming has to offer, and the Agon solution is crucially a tad cheaper than its immediate rivals. That said, a £2,000 price tag remains a significant chunk of change, and though the gaming experience can be hair-raising, AOC hasn't been able to ameliorate our existing concerns. Fan noise remains a genuine bugbear, getting rid of the undesirable FALD halo effect requires switching to a reduced-contrast SDR mode, and the DisplayPort 1.4 interface doesn't have the bandwidth to enable refresh rates in excess of 144Hz when operating in 10-bit HDR. Bottom line: enthusiasts willing to accept such trade-offs may be willing to bite, but £2,000 is a lot to ask for a VA panel that continues to feel experimental.”
