I bought this monitor specifically for the Ps5 after doing some research on what monitors would work with 120fps on console, and this wasn’t on the list so I took the risk but I’m satisfied. As far as I know, the 24” and 27” 1080p versions work as well for 120fps on Ps5
I purchased the my first monitor back in early November for my son. The kids loved it so much that we ordered a second monitor for my wife in late November. The monitor was suppose to arrive in mid December so we can place it under the the Christmas tree - which it didn't. I contacted the shop and in less than 4 hours I had a response with details about the monitor. It turns out the monitor had been going back and forth from the east coast to the west coast. They contacted UPS and provided me daily updates. When I explained it was a Christmas gift they made arrangements to ship out a replacement to ensure I had the gift prior Christmas. They were professional, polite, and offered solutions to make me - their customer - happy with my purchase. The monitor arrived and it's now under the Christmas tree. They literally went the extra mile to make sure I received my purchase. To this day, the original purchase has not surfaced.While it's rare to have great customer service during the holidays, when everyone is anxious about their presents arriving safely and on time, this shop proved it can be done with a smile on your face. Thank you.
I purchased this monitor in preparation for the release of the PS5. Initially, I couldn't seem to find a way for it to output in 120 hz. After a little trial and error, I found the solution. Here is how to output in 120 hz, just keep in mind that not all games currently on the PS5 are 120 hz capable. Go to SETTING-SAVED DATA AND GAME/APP SETTINGS-GAME PRESETS- and change the setting to PERFORMANCE MODE. After doing this COD Cold War was output at 1080p 120 hz. Overall, this moniter does the trick for now. At 1 ms response time you can ask for more, except for 4k at 120 hz. This will hold me over for now.
I've loved my LG W2452T since 2008 and it's been an excellent 60hz monitor for gaming with great response time. I've been nervous that I'd be disappointed with LED backlighting bleed/glow, coming from a fluorescent backlight, and also nervous about dead pixels being the norm when back in 2008, they weren't especially for good panels like LG.I thought I'd finally go for an Asus, but I hated that I might have an eye sore dead pixel and have to be stuck with it. AOC, at this time, has a zero dead pixel warranty for 3 years, and I'm content that I'll either have one by then, or never will afterward...or by 3-5 years 2160p may be the norm for gaming and I'll upgrade.The picture quality is improved over my old TN panel and the response time is still great. The angles of colors are nice to finally see "normally" instead of having to tilt and move my head when working in photoshop. I was worried the response time would be bad when going for an IPS panel, but panels have come a long way in 12 years!There's a setting to display the refresh rate via monitor hardware, which is a great feature. I thought it'd be fun to see it change with g-sync enabled, but what it actually did was show me that even though I enjoyed the 144hz refresh rate in gaming, g-sync wasn't actually enabled and functioning despite making multiple changes to enable it (or, so I thought), because it stayed pegged at 144hz. So, I already had an "oh, this is a really nice upgrade" moment with 144hz, but then I learned it wasn't actually functioning correctly and I looked up and changed more settings software-side and then had another "wow" moment when g-sync was actually working!I'm sticking with AOC for my next monitor because the price and function is excellent, especially with the pixel warranty included in the price.
The product I'm reviewing is the AOC CQ32G1. I have it connected up to an Xbox Series S via HDMI. First off to save some people some time reading through the entire thing, it's a great monitor for most gamers. However, if you're a very very picky or particular person you should probably spend more money, but for most it's very good at this price. (I paid $319 USD). First thing is first because there is lots of bad info in the questions section or it's not clear which product they are referring to. This monitor has a display port and two HDMI ports but they ARE NOT THE SAME. It has one HDMI 2.0 port and one 1.4 port. Make sure you are using the 2.0 port with the Xbox for the 1440p/120hz mode. Colors, gamma, brightness, contrast, etc do need to be adjusted for the best picture, but once that's done it really looks great! Try the frame booster setting as it actually does a lot for the image. I did not have dead pixels or damage out of the box. Set up was easy, settings and power buttons are at the bottom right on the frame. Bottom line for how much you're spending it's a fantastic monitor. AMD Freesync works awesome on Xbox by the way!
