    GSync Compatibility is not hardware GSync, it's DisplayPort adaptive sync that's been certified by NVIDIA. So basically, NVIDIA-approved FreeSync.

    No point mentioning 'with GSync' in the title, it's kinda misleading.

      I’ve updated it, thanks for the info

    • What's the observable difference?

      • +1

        Hardware GSync has variable overdrive as standard which improves motion clarity across the VRR range, and is usually much more dialled in with its response times to deliver the best balance between blur and overshoot for a given panel.

        This more-detailed tuning also tends to come with the best form of backlight strobing possible on said panels, as well.

        It's not worth the premium IMO as you can such around Freesync-related issues in several ways, but it's important to distinguish it. There's also models popping up with their own variable overdrive solutions, too.

    is 27" too big for a 2nd monitor if main is 24"?

    • +1

      Why can't main be 27" and vice versa!!

      • Buy 2x 27"

      • just bought a nice 24" recently and am happy with it

        • +4

          And yet here we are talking about the 2nd one!

          • @TaurusHead: oh sorry misunderstood you, my current monitor is a bit better than this that's why so this lesser one would be better suited as a 2nd

          • @TaurusHead: some people need more than one monitor for work

        • you’ll be happier with this

  • Be aware that AOC had an older version of the same model number with different pros/cons (the older one will probably not be the one shipped, unless the retailer has older stock at hand). Watch Hardware Unboxed's follow up review for more details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdmE3NcyAgM

    • Different monitor no? That video was about the 24G2, this is listing is for the 27G2.

      • You're quite right. My mistake. Didn't realise this is an FHD 27".

                  @Zylam Marex: Fair play mate. Mixed bag.

                  • +1

                    @Dvbargain: Yeah it's unfortunate how mixed the situation is for getting 120 frames on anything above 1080. We really need to move to HDMI 2.1 as a standard so this isn't an issue.

    • +4

      That has no meaning, the display can only do 1080p 144hz, no reason to have extra bandwidth when it will never use it

      • Yeah I know I never said it was needed for this monitor, I just said HDMI 1.2 is really old, it gives you a date of this monitor and that the other one was better with HDMI 2.

        The last part was just me hoping we get HDMI 2.1 monitors in sub 500 soon.

        • 1080p 144hz is really old technology, I think everyone knows this

          • @ln28909: Yes but it doesn't necessarily mean the rest of the components such as the panel, backlite, io and additional features have to be old. Plenty of people still want a 1080p 144hz monitor with the best features and quality. Looking at those things you can tell where a monitor stands.

            • @Zylam Marex: there is no benefit in putting anything more than hdmi1.4 in a 1080p 144hz monitor, if there is a monitor that does this, then you should stay away, as they upsell into something you're never gonna need

              • @ln28909: That may be true for many people but there are plenty of benefits for having higher bandwidth ports, different types of HDR, support for more colour profiles, things like G sync and such need higher a bandwidth connection.

                Resolution and frame rate alone do not speak for the entire monitor. Plenty of 1080 144 monitors are of higher quality and have better panels, io ports, better colour coverage than 4K monitors.

                Also my entire point was that for the same price you can get a monitor with HDMI 2. If anything it's future proofing.

                • @Zylam Marex: what that makes absolutely no sense, a monitor will choose the hdmi version that is required for its features, if it doesn't support g sync, it won't use a hdmi version that support g sync.

                  If there is a particular thing you want in a monitor, you pick a monitor with those settings, you don't look at the hdmi version and hope it supports those settings, and monitors are not suppose to be future proofing, you know exactly what it provides, the day you bought it, nothing new is gonna be added

                  • @ln28909: By that logic looking at a monitors ports will tell you exactly what you need to know if they wouldn't add a higher end port for no reason. If the monitor has HDMI 2 it must be there for a reason.

                    And as I said, it was the same price, it's a better buy, how is that hard to comprehend?

                    • @Zylam Marex: no because there are many usage for bandwidth, you could have low refresh hdr using the same hdmi version as high refresh no hdr.

                      you always look at the features

                      And as I said, it was the same price, it's a better buy

                      if doesn't happen, that's why

                      • @ln28909: Then there is even more reason to look at the port spec, if a monitor is advertised as HDR but only has a old HDMI port, you'll only get a low refresh HDR, whereas if it had a high bandwidth port, you know it can handle high refresh rate too.

                        I don't get what you mean by if it doesn't happy, that's why. Better spec for the same price is better.

                        • @Zylam Marex: lol then that's fault advertising, do you really think manufacturer is gonna do that and risk lots of liability

                          you don't have a hdmi 1.4 monitor & a hdmi 2.0 monitor with all else equal, they don't make that. they would be 2 completely different products

                          • @ln28909: Which adds even more to my point that a monitor with a HDMI 2 port for the same price is a better buy.

                            • @Zylam Marex: it simply means that there is more features on product A than Product B, it doesn't make product B bad because it lacks features

                              for example,

                              • HDR is very much gimmick for monitor below 400 nits

                              • not all monitors have equal response time, contrast ratio etc, those difference doesnt necessarily translate to higher bandwidth such that a newer hdmi version is required

                              So no, a monitor with HDMI 2.0 port is not guaranteed to be a better buy than a monitor with HDMI 1.4 port

  • How does this compare to dell DGF? After adding 1 more and this might be good for the price.
    Edit: 1080p, my bad, disregard.

  • What's the difference between this and the 27G2E5 ?

    I have this monitor. Once calibrated, it's sufficient for photo editing in SDR.

    Display settings:
    Brightness 29 (~120cd/m2)
    Gamma 2
    Color Temp: User
    Red 54, Green 44 Blue 38

    Calibrated using i1DisplayPro (iD3) and DisplayCal; sRGB, 2.2 gamma, D65, 120cd/m2:
    sRGB coverage: 99.59%
    DCI-P3 coverage: 85.49%
    AdobeRGB coverage: 79.60%
    Avg. deltaE: 0.083877

    For gaming, I use:
    Mode: Gamer3
    Brightness 44 (~160cd/m2)
    Overdrive Strong
    G-Sync On

  • Is this shipped from Sydney?

    • yep!

    I paid $320 for mine about 6 months ago.

    I only have incredibly minor dislikes with it (physical buttons are hard to press, texture of the screen looks slightly silky (not to confuse with glossy) instead of full matte) but it's amazing value for $230. Apart from that, amazing monitor!

    Plus, huge bonus points for being incredibly light. The gigabyte equivalent is heavy as which made me uncomfortable putting 2 of them on a dual arm.

    I'd be getting 2 of these.

  • i would like to get these 2 of these, i only have one available hdmi port on my laptop. would really appreciate any advice on the correct hdmi adaptor that i need to get the best from these monitors. cheers
