You may be familiar with the much-heralded, feature-packed AGON, an AOC gaming monitor that received many accolades from gaming publications, lauding the top refresh rates, adaptive sync tech and HDR display. Other AOC monitors have also proven popular thanks to elegant, slim profiles, dynamic contrast ratios, crisp detail, and fast response, especially the AOC 27-inch which many consider the ideal size for a second monitor.
You'll find a wide selection of AOC monitors here. There are several sizes available, plus you have choices when it comes to picking the resolution you want, from Full HD, to brilliant 4K UHD when you want to play the top video games or watch the latest movies. Additionally, AOC monitors offer a host of connectivity options so you can select a model with a port that accommodates your HDMI cable, or has multiple HDMI ports, or DVI, VGA or DisplayPort inputs, so you're well-equipped to connect both digital and analog devices. You might want to get an AOC portable monitor if you're a frequent traveler or often give presentations on the go. Or you can choose an AOC USB monitor with one or multiple USB ports for simple plug-and-play convenience, to complement your current monitor, connect a mouse or keyboard, or use a flash drive. When it comes to features, you can choose a monitor with tilt to eliminate glare and achieve perfect positioning, one that has integrated speakers, or one that has a headphone jack. You can also choose an AOC monitor with a built-in webcam. In other words, you are pretty much assured of finding the best AOC monitor for your needs and wants.
If you have any concerns about power spikes caused by lightning strikes, power grid switching, or large appliances in your home, you may want to get a surge protector to limit and control the voltage so it doesn't fry your AOC monitor and other electronics.
Using Your AOC Gaming Monitors
If gaming is your priority, there are a few things you can do to optimize the experience. A primary consideration is your setup, including the dedicated area in your home and the seating, either a recliner or other chair that provides comfort and lumbar support through long hours of play. You'll also want to take screen positioning into account. Will you mount your AOC gaming monitor on the wall, or will you want to use a monitor mount with a desk or table so you can center it an arms-length from your control position? Additionally, since the sound is nearly as important as the graphics for creating excitement, you'll want to make sure your speakers are up to the task. If they're not, you may want to consider upgrading to new gaming speakers to bring added realism to the "boom" and "pow" of the action.
Refresh rate is a crucial specification of your AOC monitor when it comes to delivering an optimal gaming experience. Refresh rates define how many times the screen refreshes per second. While refresh rate is less a concern for watching movies, for gaming, you want a higher rate to eliminate flicker, blur and fuzzy images. AOC monitor refresh rates start at 60Hz, typical for a PC monitor, and go to 144Hz, considered pretty much the standard for higher end gaming. You may also want to consider selecting an AOC that has a low blue light mode, so that when you're playing games with your Nintendo Switch, for example, you can filter blue light wavelengths to avoid serious eye strain, headaches and long-term damage.
