Product Snapshot

Overview

The AOC Agon PD27 is a high-end 240Hz gaming monitor released in November 2020. It boasts a VA panel that claims to deliver better contrast and black levels than an IPS panel. In addition, unlike the older AOC 27B1H, it features a native resolution of 2560p x 1440p, which is perfect for games to achieve a high native refresh rate while not looking too low-res. Furthermore, it touts an almost 100% sRGB coverage. As a result, it is positioned really well for both casual and professional esports gamers alike. To discover what experts had to say about it, keep reading our AOC Agon PD27 review until the end. And don’t forget to take a look at the top-ranked computer monitors available in the market.
