The AG322QCX is a 32″ monitor from AOC falling under their Agon gaming brand. Agon came into being back in 2016 and has been used to group together all of AOC’s recent gaming products and social media presence, promising outstanding performance and that all important competitive edge. To be precise this monitor is actually a 31″ inches in size although often listed as 32″.
The screen features a gentle 1800R curve to help bring the outer edges of this large monitor into view. As someone who struggles with big screens the curve does seem helpful to me and naturally enables you to take in more of the screen. Whether big screens are for you is ultimately down to your personal taste and your environmental setup.
The AOC AG322QCX is a well built solid looking monitor, it features thin bezels and a stylish metal base makes this screen look the part without being overly geared towards the teenage gamer bedroom look. I’d be proud to show this off in my home study. The stand is capable of tilting, swiveling and height adjustments, you can’t rotate it but that probably wouldn’t make a lot of sense on a 32″ screen, especially one that is curved!
Professional testers report back good colour imaging results on the AG322QCX, it’s capable of hitting 100% of the sRGB colour space and 84% of the AdobeRGB. This is a good result when you remember this is a screen aimed primarily at gamers but you won’t be dissapointed if you also wish to use this for image processing. Games with a high contrast should be well represented, the VA panels typically do well here so this is not a surprise.
Colour accuracy and uniformity score well if not of the class but, once again, this is a good result for a gaming monitor and a promising improvement if you have been disappointed by the TN panels that often back these screens. A professional grade IPS panel might surpass it but not by much.
As mentioned, this monitor is built for games and here’s the good news they are going to look great running at 1440p and super smooth at 144hz. The bad news is that you will need a top range graphics card to generate that number of frames per second. This monitor is FreeSync compatible so that’s going to help keep things looking smooth and stutter free if your GPU fails to keep up that rate. The FreeSync window for this monitor is 48-144hz so as long as your rig can output frames in this range then the adaptive sync tech will have your back.
Should I buy the AOC AGON AG322QCX?You get a lot of monitor for your money and there is enough here to justify the price. An MVA panel, 1440p resolution and a sweet sweet 144 frames per second make this a very attractive monitor. The image quality is also superb not to mention the inclusion of FreeSync for those with compatible graphics cards. You get all this and a 32" screen size, this looks like a very tempting prospect for gamers with a love for big monitors. If you are having some doubts about this purchase then why not read some real owner reviews and see what other buyers think.
