AOC has taken the monitor market by storm, announcing the launch of five new Full HD gaming displays for consumers.

Following up on its G1 lineup, the company’s new lineup of AOC G2 monitors includes three curved and two flat displays. All of them feature up to a 240 Hz refresh rate and 0.5 ms — 1 ms for the larger 31.5″ monitor — response time.

A new AOC monitor for everyone

With these five new gaming monitors, AOC is making an attempt to provide a monitor for anyone, no matter your preference. Whether you want a smaller-formed display or a larger-crisp screen, AOC hopes you’ll find something you can use.

Each monitor has a number of similarities, including the aforementioned refresh rate and response time. Also similar is the Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, low blue light modes, AOC’s Flicker-Free technology, audio input and output, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs for use with the latest graphics cards. That said, there are differences between the models.

The flat monitor sizes will range from 23.8″ to 27″. Meanwhile, the curved displays come in at 27″ and 31.5″. The curved gaming monitors — C27G2ZU, C27G2ZE, and C32G2ZE — feature VA panels and viewing angles of 178/178°. The smaller 23.8″ displays — 24G2ZU and 24G2ZE — come with TN panels to help improve response time without artifacts.

The lower-priced ZE models from AOC will include all equipped essentials such as adjustable tilt stands and VESA mount compatibility. The ZU monitor models add more features, including a height-adjustable stand, two built-in 2W speakers, and a four-port USB 3.2 hub to provide connectivity for your various peripherals. Those monitors come in the 23.8″ and 27″ display sizes.

The launch dates and prices for each display can be found below. The prices are listed in Pound Sterling along with an approximate USD conversion until AOC confirms the final price for American consumers.
