Admiral was founded in 1934, in Chicago, Illinois and it was later established in Taiwan in 1967 as Admiral Overseas Corporation (AOC).
At that time, AOC was the first manufacturer of color televisions for export and fast forward to now, AOC is selling in more than 100 countries worldwide and their products include CRT/LCD monitors, LCD TVs, All in One units, and Android Tablets.
AOC has become a well known name in the enthusiast market and have gained a lot of respect for releasing quality monitors. Their monitors are designed for any solution weather it is for gaming, corporate, creative and USB powered monitors. The gaming industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and it keeps growing each year. If you are a gamer, there are so many gaming monitors to choose from nowadays and the Agon line from AOC is specifically targeted at gamers.
AOC has sent us the AOC AG271QG Agon which is a 27 inch stylish gaming monitor that incorporates a wide range of features such as IPS panel,
fully adjustable stand, and support for G-Sync with 165Hz refresh rate.
The AOC AG271QG Agon 27 inch monitor is an extremely well designed gaming monitor which retails for $619.99 on Amazon.
It is positioned toward the higher end of the gaming monitor market and competes with other 1440p IPS-Panel 144/165Hz monitors that are on the market such as the Asus ROG PG278Q, ViewSonic XG2703-GS and Acer XB271HU.
AOC is using a 27 inch AU Optronics AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) panel on their AG271QG Agon monitor with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. AHVA panel is an IPS (In-Plane Switching) type panel that's designed for great color consistency and viewing angles compared to TN panel.
The AOC AG271QG has a response time of 4 ms and a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz. NVIDIA's G-Sync is designed to ensure smooth on-screen action which works by synchronizing the display’s refresh rates to the GPU in your GeForce GTX-powered PC to eliminate screen tearing. The 165Hz refresh rate is effectively faster than a standard display and can help you get those critical missing images on the screen which shows enemy movement in ultra smooth motion so you can easily target them. AOC's warranty process is a 14-day DOA (Dead On Arrival) policy so if you receive a defective monitor, you can return it during that time and they will replace it with an identical one.
