What customers say about "Key Specs"
AOC AG273QCX Curved Gaming Monitor
  • The resolution when connected to DP is great.
  • 2k is the sweet spot right now with gaming since you can still get a high frame right while enjoying a higher resolution than HD (1080p).
  • The resolution makes the text crisp and easier to read.
  • The resolution is in the perfect spot for me and I'm very happy.
  • Great resolution, black is black, refresh etc.
MSI Optix MAG271CQR Curved Gaming Monitor
  • If you're accustomed to working in 1080p then the 2560x1440 resolution is a real step up and gives you appreciably more desktop space.
  • Up until now I've stuck with full HD (1080p) screens, but I finally decided it was time the upgrade to 1440p.
  • The resolution is just perfect from casual 1080p to extreme 4k.
  • 1440p is a good middle ground that you will enjoy staying at for a good while.
  • The 1440p resolution makes images look better, and everything looks so smooth with the 144hz.

What customers say about "Display"
AOC AG273QCX Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Much better color than my TN panel. This is a 1440p panel and it shows!
  • The panel is why you buy this, and it's absolutely beautiful.
  • All of these panels have had great colors and viewing angles.
  • Blacks are deep, colors pop, and the high refresh rate is literally game changing.
  • The colors are not good out of the box so be prepared to spend some time calibrating.
MSI Optix MAG271CQR Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Colors are highly customizable, so people who want to calibrate and adjust image to their wishes you can easily do so.
  • Monitor is BIG. Color is just amazing.
  • The colors are good after a bit a tweaking.
  • For me, this VA panel is a perfect combination of display quality for productivity, and speed/refresh rate for gaming.
  • Colors are a bit weird and illumination appears not even but I have not spent much time calibrating the screen yet.
