Llevo casi un mes de uso con este monitor y quiero ser claro. Hasta ahora todo excelente, el monitor llegó en perfecto estado, la caja que lo contenía un poco golpeada, sí. No obstante ningún daño en el monitor y lo más importante en un inicio es que no tenía ni por ahora tiene píxeles muertos. Quiero aclarar que a la hora de encenderlo y ver la calidad de los colores me sentí decepcionado porque noté que tenía mala calidad y lo veía muy feo, entonces investigué un poco y di con la configuración que les pondré a continuación en apartados (de preferencia iniciar con el apartado número 4 para cambiar idioma por si se les dificulta el inglés): 1.

Bueno, leí también que mucha de esta configuración viene a veces de serie pero en mi caso venía desconfigurada. Después de tenerlo configurado crean que la calidad de imagen es espectacular, para mi es una experiencia fascinante.
Así que como conclusión puedo recomendar mucho este monitor, es para gaming y también para disfrutar contenido multimedia. Si les gusta tener una mira de referencia pueden activarla presionando la flecha derecha del monitor.
Es monitor funciona a la perfección, muestra sus 144hz y es compatible con G-Sync que era la razón por la que me decidí por comprarlo. El incoveniente es que tiene un pixel muerto casi en el centro de la pantalla, si el pixel estuviese en alguna de las esquinas la verdad no habría tanto problema pero si lo tengo que estar viendo constantemente se vuelve una molestia.
Bought this monitor because of all the good reviews it has, really disappointed. I usually don't leave reviews, but his was a bad monitor. Really dim at 250 nits (you want something around 350 nits) Colors are washed out so bad that you will need to push the color vibrancy to almost the max and there you will loose a lot of details/shades, Very slow pixels and can't keep up with the 144Hz refresh.
Do your self a favor and save some money to get a better monitor
I really wanted to like this monitor. But after spending more than 2 days trying to get the image quality right I'm returning it, it 's just a bad panel and you can't do much about it. Edit : just got the Asus VG248QG, and it's night and day difference. *brighter *vibrant colors (can be adjusted to your liking) *good contrast *much clearer and sharper image at high FPS +130FPS *freesync works flawlessly with Nvidia card (RTX 2070)
I have a few firsts with this monitor, 1440P, VA, Curved, Freesync, 31.5". Coming from a AOC 1080P 27" 144hz monitor, I really liked it less the contrast issues of a TN panel. I also had the beef to move up to 1440P at this time.
Out of the box this monitor scared me, imo you cannot use the OOB settings. VA white to black refresh colors react slower but with better contrast, just scrolling up and down in a browser the text would dim and get fuzzy until I stopped and then it took a fraction of a second to get solid for reading. This was really odd an annoying, however one of the reason I got this monitor was for the performance mode, so I quickly started messing with settings.
With any monitor I get I'm heading into settings to get the brightness, contrast, colors as right as I can. This one just a little extra.
So here are the setting I came up with to make it work great via desktop or in game: Luminance: Contrast 45 Brightness 35 Eco Mode Standard Gamma 3 DCR Off Color Normal
Game Settings: Game Mode Off Shadow Control 50 Low Input Lag On (On for desktop work, Off for in game, less lag much smoother, yes Off here per manual and it feels correct) Game Color 10 LowBlue Internet Override STRONG (For Desktop Work. Off for in Game, only setting when Lag is set off) Freesync On
Doing this toggle and tweaking in the Nvidia Control panel color settings some, I've been able to get the monitor to work and look great in all modes. Contrast is great and moving your head around doesn't change contrast like it does with a TN panel. This is a real step up from TN.
The curve screen I could do without, to me it brings little, in fact vertical lines near the edges get a keystone type of feel going on, it isn't keystone for real, but an effect the curve brings. In the future I will give curve screens 0 points, I'd be just as happy with a flat screen.
The Freesync was already chosen in the Nvidia panel which is a brand new feature, like one week old. Good to see it recognized all on its own. I'll do some reading to make sure it is actually working well. With 144hz screen tearing isn't a thing anymore, so going by that in my tests (Is Freesync working?) doesn't tell me for certain.
Even though I feel I got everything I need out of it, looking and performing well, I ended up with a 4 star score because there is no manual, there isn't anything telling you about the settings. I know what I was seeing at first and I knew I had to fix it immediately or return the product, so I went through all the settings until I found the ones I needed to fix. I did, but I do wonder how many people get one of these and think "OMG VA sucks!" and returns it?
EDIT: This monitor puzzles me and 1/2 me wants to return it. I can get ideal conditions, but there are two settings I have to toggle in-game and out-of-game, the problem is I have to go into settings each time and make a change, also there isn't a way to save the presets. I updated the settings above to match this edit. So I dropped two stars since I believe you need to toggle this often for best results.
En materiales se siente de calidad, el soporte y la base se instalan sin problemas, ambos son estables ya montados, no tiemblan ni tampoco vibran. La pantalla es excelente en construcción, tiene una curvatura 1800R con un marco bastante fino te da una visualización bastante buena ya encendida y en conjunto con las franjas rojas que se encuentran por todo el monitor le dan ese toque "Gamer".
Su resolución es 1080p a 27", la densidad de píxeles no es igual vs 24" o 27" en 1440p pero tampoco es que sea mala o se vea mal, en términos generales se aprecian los elementos en pantalla correctamente, aunque si ya has probado antes algún 1440p a 27" lógicamente sí notarás el cambio.
Ya en el uso detalles como el Bleeding lo tiene bien controlado, como es de esperar en un panel VA con mayor contraste los negros son más profundos y por ende tienes una mejor experiencia en dicho color. De Stock la pantalla viene descalibrada en colores, la verdad no son los mejores pero ya que el menú del monitor es bastante completo "uno o dos ajustes aquí y allá" harán quedar el monitor excelente en imágen.
Los 144Hz funcionan de maravilla combinado con el 1ms de respuesta cualquier juego que ejecutes se desempeñará excelente, eso claro, siempre y cuando tengas una GPU que pueda mover esos Hz, de otro modo aquí viene la otra parte y que también es un Plus bastante bueno, es 100% compatible con el Adaptive Sync de Nvidia en FreeSync usando los últimos Drivers, lamentablemente sólo funciona en Windows 10 esa característica, yo soy usuario de 8.1 y bueno, me tocó instalar en otra partición sólo para probarla, pero ya en juegos la verdad es que uf.. dentro del rango de 48/144Hz que funciona el FreeSync notarás una imagen más fluida, sin cortes y más estable, por si alguien tenía la duda al respecto de compatibilidad :)
En términos generales es un muy buen monitor, también cuenta con ajuste de altura y rotación lateral, no puedes manipularlo hacia abajo como en modo ventana y creo también es compatible con una montura VESA.
Le pongo 4 estrellas ya que a pesar de todo lamentablemente llegó con un pixel atascado justo en medio de la pantalla que se nota mucho en fondos negros y azules, me veo en la situación de aplicar una devolución pero cuando tenga nuevamente el crédito lo volveré a adquirir esperando que la prox. vez sí llegue bien.
The monitor is very nice. I had no issues with using it, besides the OSD being a bit finicky. The few reason I bought this are because of the price point and the warranty. I bought it for around $430 and it was great. Give it about 4 months and I accidentally scratch the screen pretty badly. I think “well, okay I’ll just use their 1-year 1-time accidental damage warranty to replace it.” My first call to customer service and they had construction work in the background and my voice echoed so bad I had to put them on speaker. I ask to use my one time warranty, and get this- they didn’t ask me for order invoice, address, serial number- none of that. They ask what damage it was so I told them the screen was scratched. They proceed to tell me that the accidental damage warranty only covers cracked screens, which I say “BS” I’m on their website and they claim it covers “all accidental damage including monitors falling on the floor, acts of God, or even nuclear war. One incident covered, for up to 1-year from the date of the purchase.” So I say “you’re telling me the warranty covers nuclear war and all accidental damage but not a scratched screen?” And he says “I guess so.” So now I paid $430 for a decent monitor and a scam of a warranty. An absolute scam and a blatant lie. Either that or they need to fire that man and actually maintain their reputation.
Aoc c24g1 24 inch curved VA 144hz monitor I switched from a 75hz ips lg 24 inch monitor to this and 144hz is a different experience provided your gpu can push the frames. I run a ryzen 2600+rtx2060 so me no problem pushing 1080p 120+ frames in maximum games I play most of my games on very low to low settings for that max fps and to enjoy the 144hz max refresh rate. Ok so now the monitor - This has a freesync mode and a mbr(motion blur reduction mode) you can only play with one and for the people wondering this is gsync compatible just goto Nvidia control panel and switch it to gsync compatible if you're playing with freesync MBR - this has a value from 1-20 and as your go higher you lose brightness mbr reduces ghosting and the images seems more smoother best for fps games like pubg,cs. Curve : for the guys wondering the 24 inch has 1500r curve vs 27inch has 1800r After buying this I was regretting the purchase as I thought I shouve bought a flat monitor as they will be way better than curve I used the monitor felt weird for like an hour or so and then got into the zone I was playing pubg it took me 2 days to get used to the curve, it seems like a big deal at first then u get used to it so don't worry you wont lose that competitive edge. I followed the pcmonitor reviews guide and downloaded the icc color profile etc with User color profile r-50 g-42 b-38 mbr set to 10 and brightness to 75 Got good results but after a months switched back to normal color setting and freesync as i find it more comfortable for my eyes. Pros: -144hz + mbr (this feature probably sets this monitor apart from other curved VA Panels) -Good customizability options -sturdy stand -mic jack Cons: -retarded on screen controls, holy shit guys this is so annoying when each time you restart your monitor it resets the mbr to 0 good luck resetting it to 10 when the on screen commands auto close for some reason. -still using buttons to do most shit : you can download the software to change most setting from the aoc site but that still doesn't change mbr
Conclusion : Buy it , it's probably better or as good as flat tn panels of this price range you get mbr ,just get used to resetting it each restart.
Edit (8/18/19): .Update your motherboard bios especially if using new graphics cards like RTX series and new radeon RX series cards. I had an issue with old board bios that resulted in improper resolution output on new RTX cards causing blurriness in games. This monitor at 32 inches requires a powerful processor to transition the screen pixels and graphics card to see it at its best. I recently upgraded my motherboard to an MSI gaming plus and also got an intel I7 9700k with my RTX 2080. This monitor is now fully functional , textures in games are crisp and sharp, there is absolutely no more image/texture blur at this screen size. I cant explain how it happened but it seems the screen pixels are able to transition faster with this new hardware. I was using an i7 8700 non K version which i thought was powerful but with the new processsor i am hitting 144Fps consistently now and it shows with how clear the games look . don't get me wrong they looked good before but they totally look amazing now. If you can afford it get an i7 processor preferably a 9700k or 8700k. Also if you install the latest GeForce drivers version 436.02. u should try out the new texture sharpening tool. It is simply amazing. To use it u need to have GeForce experience installed, during gameplay press Alt +F3, on the overlay click one of the numbers either 1,2, or 3. Select the game filter command, and scroll down until u see sharpening, move the slider to adjust the sharpness and enjoy the visuals.
Make sure to reinstall your graphics drivers after you hook this monitor up to your PC for the first time, Nvidia gives you the option to do a custom installation with a clean installation ,which will help to resolve any leftover conflicts with your previous monitor. Also, use the displayport cable that came with the monitor, I noticed that images in games were sharper compared to when I used any third party cable. I don't know if it just placebo but I tried using 4 other dp cables and the images were not as good in my opinion compared with the one added in the box.Okay on to the review,I took the plunge and bought this monitor. Its a 32 inch curved monitor and it is much larger than I thought it was going to be. if you have a small desk u might want to think of getting a larger one. I hooked it up to my pc using an RTX 2080 and it looked good but not great in gaming. I knew something was definitely off. I tried all kinds of configurations for 4 days but nothing worked until I played with the picture boost menu which I finally understood what it does. The picture boost option applies an extra virtual film over the screen which allows u to tweak the brightness and contrast more than in the luminance option. Just go into the menu under Picture boost and enable Bright frame to On , after that increase the frame size all the up to 100. My brightness setting in picture boost is 34 and contrast is 50.Adjust to ur own desire but I notice lower brightness improves in game shadows. I did notice if I used any of the present game modes (Hint: leave Game mode off) under game setting option, it would shut off Picture boost and I would have to enable it again and redo the entire process. I wish we could save our settings presets files in the monitor.
Under Game settings, Game mode is off (if u enable, it will disable picture boost mode) set low blue mode to off , overdrive to medium ( If you have a very powerful pc like an intel 8700k or higher with an RTX 2070 or higher , u might want to leave the overdrive setting off, it adds a lot of input lag and u don't really have that much blurriness with a very powerful pc and gpu.) Freesync to On
Under luminance, Contrast is 45 Brightness is 95 (lower it if you like) Eco mode standard Gamma set to gamma 2 DCR is off
Under Color Setup Color Temp is set to User Red is 43 Green is 48 Blue is 49 shadow control 50 Once I setup this config, I can now fully say that this monitor is a must buy and I am now totally loving it. playing games on it has been very immersive and u just cant go wrong with this product. Once properly configured this monitor is amazing.
Edit: I just want to add that this AOC monitor is G sync compatible. I previously used a Dell S2417DG TN panel G sync monitor, I can say that I am having a much smoother and consistent performance with this AOC freesync monitor in G sync mode. The problem which nobody wants to address is that G sync on native Gsync monitors is broken on Windows 10 since last years Windows March update, the micro stuttering on the Dell monitor with Gsync was driving me crazy. I am having a much better experience now with adaptive sync on this monitor. Games like Far cry 4 and 5 are much smoother. I don't think this monitor will ever get official Gsync compatible certification due to the freesync range of 48 - 144hz. Nvidia will only certify monitors that are 30- 144hz. Even with that , i don't get below 48 fps unless the game is broken like Gears of War ultimate edition. All my games are running fantastic and smooth , u will probably need a minimum of gtx 1070/gtx 1660 ti or Vega 56/Rx 580/590 to fully enjoy this monitor. In freesync mode , the monitor automatically caps ur max fps at 144, u can't go higher even on powerful Gpu.It helps to ensure you have a consistent experience while game, native Gsync doesn't do this and u need to cap it yourself manually. Once again, no regrets with this monitor and it is worth the money.
Out of the box! Back light bleed!, for me its in the form of Batman's Logo xD!
Past gaming experience: i've never had a gaming monitor before, I was using a LG TV Flat screen 1080i my whole gaming and video editing career .:,D, but this week since then, this curved monitor from AOC has made my gaming and editing of any kind a breeze and far more then i have expected for a first time user of these 144Hz monitors.
As for the size and curve, i made a promising investment.
Minor bugs: Back light bleed shows more in dark scenes or black screens, but goes away when a small amount of bright light from scenes of movies or games comes along.
The screen will flicker upon light transitions in certain games or moves, Mostly in Games since light is more refined and consistent, or better meaning the monitor flickers when adjusting to lower light out-put from games which i think causes the flickers as it adjusts for lower lighting to give a better visual.
The body and frame of the monitor however is a new feel for me, just gotta not touch the screen and force the up and down tilt so much, handle it well, it may last longer for you .:b.
4 Stars for its durability and on board Settings for a light to mid gamer, and low cost.
last thing, less problems when used in a dim lit room or dim lights in the back of this thing.
Update)... It was my GPU that was causing the flickers when the change of day to night would happen... Faulty port, so i switched D-Port to one of my other ones and the flicker went away .:,D.
