The new 24.5-inch monitor will be one of the fastest 1080p gaming monitors available in terms of response times when it launches in early 2017.

The PC gaming market is a lucrative marketspace even in the face of stagnating PC sales. Accessories like mice, keyboards, and monitors are often sold at a premium with high-end features catered to the gaming crowd.

The upcoming 24.5-inch AOC Agon AG251FZ is a gaming monitor with impressive specifications including a refresh rate of 240 Hz and a display response time of only 1 ms. Adaptive Sync will reduce screen tearing while the ergonomic Ergo Dial stand will allow for easy height, swivel, and pivot adjustments. The screen can rotate 90 degrees for use in Portrait mode when appropriate and a carrying grip on the back of the monitor should make transporting easier.

Other features include a low blue light option to reduce eyestrain and a low input lag mode for fast-pace gaming. A Shadow Control option brightens darkened areas of the image without affecting other parts of the screen while the QuickSwitch controller will save customizable display presets depending on the game.

The Agon AG251FZ is launching this coming January 2017 for a retail price of about 500 Euros. Unfortunately, there appears to be no other native resolution options outside of 1080p for now.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
