The AOC AGON AG271QG uses a 27" 2560x1440 essentially grain free matte AUO AHVA panel with 30-165hz Nvidia G-Sync range.  It has a fully adjustable stand, lots of inputs and a matte black bezel.  The AG271QG is the best of the AHVA panels (marketed as IPS) since it has better resolution scaling (vs Asus; important for console use and 1080p) and two different gamma settings to combat the potentially low preset gamma all 144hz 1440p G-Sync AHVA (marketed as IPS) panels can come with, as well as has 2 useful overdrive settings and better build quality than the Asus which has a fake-thin casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel.  The AOC AG271QC reviewed by PRAD came with low preset gamma while the rest of the tested units are great. 


Discontinued 2014 2560x1440 matte Samsung PLS panel.

It's pretty much the same as the Q2770PQU image quality wise and offers slightly faster pixel response times, but it too has a 20ms delay.

Matte LH AH-IPS with Displayport, 2x HDMI, VGA and 3.5mm Audio Out.


Review by Belgium Hardware & Measurements

Fairly accurate, fully adjust-able and delay free matte LG AH-IPS with Displayport, 2x HDMI 1.4, 4x USB 3.0, VGA and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The sRGB mode is fairly accurate while the preset Standard mode is too blue and green, and the User mode which unlocks the color controls suffers from more of a preset blue and green dominance, and both the Standard and User mode have too high preset gamma averaging between 2.3 and 2.4.  Tom's Hardware measured a 63ms delay with their own methodology which translates to over 20ms if measured with the Leo Bodnar device which means it has high input lag for a 1440p monitor made after 2016.


Review by Playwares

Matte 27" 1440p IPS with a fully adjustable stand, perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel, Displayport, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, VGA, 4x USB 3.1, and 3.5mm  Audio In & Out.  The AOC has very low preset gamma (<1.75=very washed out colors and shades), but can be improved by setting the Gamma to 3, suffers from a strong preset green tint and can't, but almost covers the HDTV/REC 709 or sRGB color space, and slightly under and over-saturates colors.
