AOC’s new V2 series of monitors includes incredibly slim displays with IPS panels, 1080p resolution, and AMD FreeSync up to 75Hz. All three monitors – the AOC 22V2Q, the AOC 24V2Q, and the AOC 27V2Q feature the same specs and only differ in screen size.
Based on an IPS panel with 8-bit color depth, 178-degree viewing angles, and a 5ms response time speed, the AOC V2 line of monitors deliver accurate and vibrant colors that stay perfect no matter the angle you’re looking at the screen.
With a 5ms response time, you can expect no ghosting or prominent motion blur with fast-moving objects on-screen, though if you are into competitive gaming, you should look for a gaming monitor with a 1ms speed for the best results.
The AOC 24V2Q 24-inch variant is the most ideal of the three as it’s decently sized while the Full HD resolution provides a reasonable pixel density.
Many would consider the AOC 22V2Q to be too small while the AOC 27V2Q is too big for 1080p and would, therefore, offer a low pixel density with blurry text and lack of details.
All three monitors offer AMD FreeSync and up to 75Hz refresh rate which makes for a small but noticeable boost in motion clarity when gaming.
If you have an AMD FreeSync graphics card, you will be able to match its GPU with the monitor’s refresh rate and thus eliminate all screen tearing and stuttering with the 48-75Hz/FPS dynamic range.
In case you have an NVIDIA card, you won’t be able to use this technology, but you can still use the monitor up to 75Hz.
Other features of the AOC 24V2Q and the rest of the V2 series monitors include a flicker-free screen and a low blue light filter which allow you to endure long gaming or working sessions without straining your eyes.
Design & Connectivity
The design of these monitors is their main asset given the plethora of similar budget monitors available. The monitors are only 7.8mm thin which makes them as thin as certain smartphones.
Unfortunately, there are no VESA mount holes at the back and the screen is tilt-only. Connector ports include an HDMI 1.4, a DisplayPort 1.2, and a headphones jack.
Price & Similar Monitors
The AOC 22V2Q, AOC 24V2Q, AOC 27V2Q prices are $154, $167, and $232 (MSRP) respectively which makes the 24-inch version the most cost-efficient choice.
