The AOC Q24G2AE monitor measures 53.5x31.5x1cm, the viewable screen is 52.5x30.5cm, and these figures give the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 23.8inches. It has an ‘X’ shaped stand with the smaller part 8cm behind the central arm and the larger part 16cm in front of it, and the front of the ‘X’ it is 43cm wide. The stand can raise the screen by between 8.5 and 18.5cm from your desk. The stand allows side to side movement of close to 30 degrees, there is a good amount of back tilt and a small amount of forward tilt.

The default resolution is 2560x1440 viewed at 125% which is also the default. It has 165Hz refresh rate with 1ms response. The aspect ratio is 16:9. The pixel pitch is 0.2055 and it has 123.4 pixels per inch. The dynamic contrast ratio is 80M:1.

It has 2x2W speakers built in but as a lot of games are quite noisy there is also a headphone out to avoid annoying others.

One of the many great features of this unit is ‘low input drag’ perhaps best described in picture format – see link at the end – but what will normally appear as an out of focus blur without it becomes clear and pin point sharp with it.

It does not seem to matter if you are viewing straight onto the screen or viewing well to one side of the other the image still seems rock steady even when viewing swiftly changing ones. The stated viewing angle is up to 178 degrees.

Nor has it forgotten things that avoid eye problems in later life, low blue light and flicker free technology.

The warranty period is three years.

While my age is against rapid response I was able to watch in full detail as I was destroyed in various games. While the clarity of images moving rapidly is vital for gamers, clarity also helps eyes both old and young see images clearly. There is brilliant colour separation and there were no apparent problems with graphics of any type, this of course is predominately due to NVIDIA and even old people like me can appreciate the brilliance of graphics and the work of game producers to create them.

The AOC website shows comparisons to what you would see on a full HD (1920x1080) screen to the great amount extra shown in QHD (2560x1440), you can also see simulations of the differences between more standard settings to the clarity and sharpness of 165HZ.

At the time of publication the AOC Gaming Monitor (Q24G2A) can be purchased from Amazon for £261.27.
