You might own the best gaming PC, but it means very little if your monitor can’t keep up. Speedy screen specs no longer cost an arm, but the latest AOC Gaming Q27G2S deal means it also doesn’t have to cost a leg.
The AOC Gaming Q27G2S is currently at its lowest price ever on Amazon UK, with a 33 per cent drop. The deal trims the cost down to a much more manageable £179.97 (down from £270), leaving room in the budget for a new mouse if you fancy. It even packs both HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 cables in the box.
What you get is a 27in gaming monitor at 1440p resolution and a smooth 165Hz refresh rate. Putting that in perspective, that’s already bigger than most professional gamers use. It’s more detailed than HD but without the heft of 4K dragging your frame rate down. And a high refresh rate also makes it a handy console accessory, exceeding the Xbox Series X/S and PS5’s beefier specs.
The IPS panel is designed to give you an excellent viewing experience that prioritises accurate colours. It’s not quite on the level of OLED, but it’s difficult to complain at this price. The 1ms response time also means it shouldn’t lag behind the competition, keeping your pixels pinpoint accurate. It packs Adaptive Sync support (Nvidia G-Sync Compatible), which is standard nowadays but keeps your screen’s image from tearing.
