Although colour fidelity isn't great out of the box, you only need to change a few settings to get the best out of the AOC Q2770QPU. With a good range of connections and an inoffensive design, this AOC monitor offers excellent image quality, wide viewing angles and WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), which is very nice to work with. The response time of 13 ms may not be speedy enough for top-end gamers, but it's within average for a Super PLS (IPS) display. All in all, it's a five-star choice!
Best of the rest
Experts & Pros
The ViewSonic VP2772 is a worthy successor to the VP2770-LED, offering a wide-gamut Adobe RGB colour space and in-factory calibration. It's an excellent monitor for imaging professionals or anyone interested in working in WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) Viewing angles are excellent, the stand is practical and there's a good range of connections to choose from.
Although it gets stuck at four stars due to its fixed stand and relatively high response time, the Philips 237E4QHAD has plenty of plus points, including accurate colours, decent contrast and wide viewing angles. It could therefore appeal to users looking for accurate onscreen image quality. The affordable price tag is a bonus too.
Although colour fidelity isn't perfect in the LG 24EN43, this display could still be a good choice for gamers looking for a monitor with a speedy response time (9.5 ms), a low input lag (12 ms) and a budget price tag.
Great for Gamers
