When it comes to gaming, 27-inch monitors seem to provide a perfect gaming experience in many video games as the screens aren’t either too big nor too small. Although a 1440p resolution is more suitable for a 27-inch due to the higher pixel density, it also requires a much more advanced computer rig. As the AOC e2752She is a budget monitor, the Full HD 1080p resolution is the perfect option as video games can run smoothly and look great without requiring a demanding computer equipment.
The TN panel of the AOC e2752She allows for a quick 2ms response time, another factor which is ideal for casual gaming as ghosting of the fast moving objects will be minimum; this is most noticeable in the fast-paced FPS games. However, TN panel also means less accurate and consistent quality of colors than IPS or VA panels as well as lesser viewing angles of 170 degrees horizontal and 160 degrees vertical. Alas, TN panel monitors are therefore more affordable and don’t suffer from the backlight bleeding or IPS glow.
The AOC e2752She offers quite a few useful features for both everyday use and professional use. The Screen+ application allows you to split your screen into seven different layout variations. For instance, you can split your screen into four even segments into which you can drag an application and thus maintain a better overview of your multitasking activities.

The OSD menu is user-friendly and easily navigated. The five buttons on the bottom bezel can also be used as shortcuts when the OSD menu isn’t open. The shortcuts can be used to toggle between the picture presets, adjust the volume of the external device, and change input source. Additionally, while holding the third button for three seconds, you will trigger auto configuration.
Once you’re in the OSD menu, you will be able to adjust all the standard parameters such as brightness, contrast, three different levels of gamma, sharpness, and analog settings such as horizontal and vertical position, phase, clock, etc. Under the luminance settings, you will also have access to six pre-calibrated picture settings including Text, Internet, Game, Movie, Sports, and a Standard mode. Under the Color Settings, you can set five different color temperature modes including Warm, Normal, Cool, sRGB, and User mode in which you can manually configure colors levels of the red, green, and blue colors. You can set an off timer in the OSD settings as well.
