Will the AOC Agon AG241QX, which accompanied us in this pre-Christmas period, live up to its name?

Approaching a gaming monitor, especially if it is close to € 500 in price, is always strange: on the other hand, we are talking about a component that specifically changes the output of the game, improving or worsening the gameplay even with the same technical specifications. If we then think that the computer, unlike the console, is not used only for gaming, then the monitor acquires a fundamental value. Will the AOC Agon AG241QX , which accompanied us in this pre-Christmas period, live up to its name?


The brown box that composes it immediately shows a normal packaging, far inferior to the quality of the internal components: it is true that the custom of packaging monitors and screens in this way is so widespread that it would have been obsolete to see it differently. We also find a VGA cable, an HDMI cable, a DisplayPort cable, a DVI cable and a USB cable.


In terms of design, the AOC Agon AG241QX has an obsessive attention to detail: the colored back plates and the resistance of the materials make the screen a high-level piece even before you see it at work. It can be assembled and adjusted to adapt to any location, and at the rear it has enough inputs to be able to manage multiple platforms in addition to the PC itself, all managed by a convenient and useful USB remote control.

The available inputs are one VGA, one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 and one DVI port. The right side also houses two USB ports and audio connectors, designed to facilitate the use of other peripherals in combination with the monitor.


The real magic, however, the AOC Agon AG241QX does it in the technical specifications, so powerful that it will really change your way of seeing (especially video games).

  • Dimensions : 23.8 inches, 554.44 × 489 mm
  • Resolution : 2560 x 1440 (QHD), 16: 9
  • Frequency : 144Hz
  • Panel : TN
  • Response Time : 1ms (GTG)
  • Backlight : WLED
  • Brightness : 350
  • Dynamic Contrast : 50M: 1
  • Contrast Ratio : 1000: 1
  • Pixel Pitch : 0.2745
  • Viewing angle : 170/160
  • Colors : 16.7 Million

To accompany these screaming specifications, the ability to illuminate the dark areas of the video and use the Low Blue Light mode to avoid eye damage. Finally, there is a FlickerFree system, compatibility with FreeSync and medium quality audio speakers (2x 3W), useful if you do not have an audio system.

Beyond the external quality, we tested the monitor in many ways in terms of technical qualities: the ability to change the settings really makes this monitor one of the best around. Too bad for the lack of an IPS panel, but the difference will remain almost imperceptible given the qualities that this screen brings to the technical sheet.

However, the 1ms response remains its best vital quality for games where reflections are king, and where a fraction of time can really change the result.


To date, the monitor can be purchased on Amazon at € 365.36, about € 150 less than the original price: at this price you will find very few products capable of satisfying your search for visual quality, which is now increasingly skyrocketing. A few flaws can still be forgiven (uneven brightness, TN panel), especially since QHD monitors are hard to find at the same figure.
