AOC C24G1

Added the Review by Playwares to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz 1080p Monitors buying guide.


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:

MSI Optix MPG27CQ

Added the Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=) to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144hz1440p Monitors buying guide.

Curved semi-wide gamut (22% over-saturation or 122% sRGB) matte 144hz VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range) 2x USB 3.0, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, a height adjustable stand and a fake frame-less casing with a perceived black depth reducing inner black bezel.  It's pretty accurate aside from the gamma which is a bit high in the 0-10% white range resulting in a bit of black crush.
