The AOC I2781FH is an elegant and beautifully designed 27-inch monitor that targets the wide audience. Along with the smaller 24-inch variant, the AOC I2481FXH, these monitors that were very recently announced, lead the way for elegant, stylish and ultra thin monitors. We have ultra thin TV’s, so why not monitors too?
The panel technology featured in this monitor is an AH-IPS type, which will provide you with very good colors and viewing angles. With just a 4ms response time, you most likely won’t feel any lag on your screen, unless the input lag is horrible, which we highly doubt. Just in the last year, panel technology and gaming monitors in general, have developed drastically. With the introduction of high refresh rate monitors in IPS panels along with NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync technologies, the viewing experience will be much greater than before. This monitor, however, only has a 60Hz refresh rate, which suggests that it is not targeted specifically towards gamers but to the larger and more general audience.
With a resolution of just 1920×1080, however, we feel that the resolution is too low compared to the screen size. A screen resolution of 1440p on a 27-inch monitor is an absolute must for a monitor right now. We just hope the price tag will be sufficiently low because of this. Other noteworthy specifications include a 250 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The Flicker Free technology will also help prevent eye strain after longer periods of use, which is a plus for everyone.
On the back you will find two HDMI ports, a VGA connector and a sound jack. The stand on the AOC I2781FH itself allows tilt adjustment only, so no pivot, height or swivel options available. No words yet on price details and release date. We will update this post accordingly when further details are announced.
