A 27-Inch 240 Hz 2560x1440 Monitor: AOC Reveals Agon AG273QZby Anton Shilov on February 25, 2020 5:00 PM EST
For gamers who demand the maximum refresh rate and the lowest Moving Picture Response Time (MPRT) possible, AOC has introduced its new 27-inch display. The Agon AG273QZ happens to be among the first 27-inch monitors that combine a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate and a QHD resolution for those who need performance and higher-than-Full-HD resolution.
AOC’s Agon AG273QZ uses a new generation 27-inch TN panel of a 2560x1440 resolution that promises a wider color gamut and other improvements compared to regular TN panels (a claim that, frankly speaking, needs verification). Specification wise, we are talking about a monitor with 400 nits peak brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 170º /160º viewing angles, a 0.5 ms MPRT response time, and a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate.
Because of the improved panel, the Agon AG273QZ LCD can display 16.7 million colors and reproduce 126.4% of the sRGB, 93.7% of the AdobeRGB, and (at least) 90% of the DCI-P3 color gamuts. Meanwhile, the monitor is AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified.
When it comes to connectivity, the Agon AG273QZ has two DisplayPort 1.4 and, a D-Sub, and two HDMI 2.0 inputs, enough to connect a gaming PC (or three) as well as a couple of modern game consoles. In addition, the monitor has a quad-port USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A hub. The audio department of the display includes two 5W speakers, a microphone in, and a headphone out.
Like the vast majority of gaming displays, the Agon AG273QZ comes with a stand that can adjust height, tilt, and swivel. Also, the monitor can work in portrait mode. Alternatively, it is possible to attach the LCD to a VESA 75x75 arm. Meanwhile, to add some bling, the LCD has an RGB ring on the rear.

There is only one VGA connector in the photo.
GreenReaper - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkAnd it's not even specified as coming with a VGA input! But it does come with a VGA cable.
I guess they forgot? Would be weird to have one and it doesn't work.
kevin.mcc - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkWant to peek my interest? Same specs except 32 or 34 inch and $500 MSRP in USA.
Vitor - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkIncredible how ignored hdmi 2.1 is.
timecop1818 - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkIt has DP 1.4, who gives a shit about HDMI
Alistair - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkTN hahahahaha
Sivar - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkA nice TN panel, but a TN panel nonetheless.
watzupken - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkI feel these manufacturers are just trying to sell cheap TN panels at premium prices just by advertising it as high refresh rate. MSRP of 659 pounds for TN panel and some bling lighting is ridiculous for me.
Alistair - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkyeap at the end of the day, it costs <$100 to make these TN panels, even if the rest of the monitor adds a cost to it, cheap bad quality stuff
Asidewaysbanana - Thursday, February 27, 2020 - linkLink IPS models with the same specs.
