AOC C24G1 & C27G1

Added the AOC C24G1 Review by PC Monitors and the  AOC C27G1 Review by Playwares to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors.

The C24G1's (1500 R curve) preset color accuracy is decent, but can be improves significantly by selecting the sRGB mode, but it locks the brightness controls and is very bright (220cmd/2). The C27G1 (1800 R curve) is significantly more accurate out of the box than the C24G1, and its sRGB mode has a preset red dominance instead of the slight out-of-the-box blue dominance, locks the brightness controls, is very bright (242cdm/2) and drops the contrast to a pathetic 485:1. The C24G1 has 3.-35K contrast while the C27G1 has 5,000:1.

Both monitors can be considered delay free (<4ms Leo Bodnar Device top screen measurements by Hardware Info and SMT Tool measurements by PC Monitors), and have decent overdrive without strong overshoot, but suffer from the typical dark color and shade transition smearing*.

IMO the overdrive of these panels is decent good enough, especially when considering the image quality downsides of faster TN panels.

Due to the pixel layout of these panels text is a bit blurrier; PCM mentions this here:

More detailed analysis in IBXT's C24FG70 review:

The CG271 seems like the best 1080p 144hz VA panel with Free-Sync.


Added the Measurements by Belgium Hardware to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz1440p Monitors buying guide.

Matte curved 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with Displayport, Dual-Link DVI and HDMI.

Asus PG27UQ

Matte 4K AHVA panel with 98hz (8 Bit +FRC / 10 bit HDR 4:4:4), Nvidia G-Sync, height adjustable stand, 4x USB 3.0, local dimming and true HDR color.  Proper color (YcBcr 4:4:4) is only supported up to 98hz.  Image quality is degraded at 99-144hz.

Added the PC Lab PL and Tom's Hardware Review to my Asus PG27UQ reviews: to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 4-5K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

BenQ BL2480T

Matte 1920x1080 IPS with Displayport, HDMI, VGA and a height adjustable stand.  It's fairly accurate but has high preset gamma which averages around 2.4 and can only cover up to 92% of the sRGB color space which is a bit below average for a budget 1080p IPS/PLS monitor.

Added the BenQ BL2480T Review by PRAD to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS Monitors.

HP 22w

Added the Review by Les Numeriques to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 21.5-23" IPS/PLS Monitors buying guide.

Matte 1080p IPS with fairly accurate color presets (sRGB color space coverage amount not listed), average contrast (800:1), a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel, HDMI and VGA.

Eizo EV3285

Added the Review and Measurements by Belgium Hardware to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 32" 4K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

Matte 32" 4K IPS panel with outstanding preset color accuracy, >1300:1 contrast, a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel, a height adjustable stand, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C and 2x USB 3.0.  Like most Eizo monitors the EV3285 has high, or nearly 2 frames (33ms) of input lag (30ms) delay (top screen Leo Bodnar measurement).
