Best Gaming Monitor Under 250 USD For 2020 Specfication
The AOC CQ27G1 monitor is based on a VA panel and offers the maximum static contrast ratio of 3,000:1 compared to the 1,000:1 contrast ratio of IPS and TN panels.
This enables it to offer far darker blacks, brighter whites, and an overall stronger connection between the darkest and the brightest shades.
The colors are rich with a broad sRGB gamut of 122 percent; they are much better than TN panels, but they are still not as vivid or detailed as you can find on IPS displays.
Moreover, you get large viewing angles of 178 °, so the picture remains flawless regardless of the way you look at the frame.
Finally, 1440p results in a rich pixel density of approximately 108 pixels per inch on 27′′ size monitors allowing for fine clarity and plenty of screen space without the need for scaling.
The main downside of this panel technology is the speed of pixel response time.
Keep in mind that response time is not equivalent to input lag. The input lag of the CQ27G1 is impeccable meaning that you won’t be able to notice or feel any delays.
The speed of response time refers to the rate at which pixels will pass from one pixel to another.
In particularly dark scenes where dark pixels predominate, VA panels have trouble moving those pixels to shift in time with the 144Hz refresh rate of the display.
So, you can find some trailing behind fast-moving objects and smearing them.
Overall, due to the performance and image quality you get for the price, the amount of smearing is tolerable but competitive gamers may find it distracting.
The AOC CQ27G1 is absolutely excellent for all other purposes like watching television, working, and playing more graphically focused games.
Naturally, you will also be able to enjoy first-person shooters and other competitive multiplayer games if you’re more of a casual gamer than a hardcore FPS player.
