AOC AGON PRO AG254FG – Monitor review from Pro-Player

In the rugged world of competitive gaming, only one thing is certain: whoever is faster wins. This happens in racing games, in the MoBain fighting games and in the FPS more avant-garde. To win you need eye, dexterity, ingenuity and adequate technical support given by the hardware that is able to push the player’s skills to the maximum: the answer is AOC AGON PRO AG254FGand we explain why.

Functional design

The first impact with AOC AGON PRO AG254FG it’s cold, alien in a certain sense: the three-legged gray metal base of the arm that supports the screen immediately gives an idea of ​​aggressiveness and competition. As soon as we look up we come across the projector that will illuminate the base with the AGON logo once the “monster” is turned on. The arm that supports the monitor culminates with the classic sporty red elements already seen on other products of the brand. The lights stand out behind the monitors LIGHT FX LEDsinteresting if you have a wall that benefits from reflected lighting or if you want to enjoy the back lighting as you arrive at your location. The screen bezel is edge to edgewith a very thin line at the side edges and a more massive one at the bottom where the logo stands out AGON in red. Everything is set up to allow us to enjoy yours to the fullest 25 inches of breadth.

How does it behave AOC AGON PRO AG254FG? In practice we are faced with a monitor that could surprise the most demanding in terms of resolution, as we have a 1920×1080 or FULL HDbut as we know in the field of action, less is more (less is more) and this is where the monitor hits right on target giving us a refresh rate of full 360Hzyou read right, ed it is complex to explain how an image moves to that fluidity: the point is that once you see it, once your eye gets used to something like this, you would hardly want to go back, and when it comes to competition (since this monitor is designed especially for professionals) we are facing what we could define as the ultimate weapon. The input response time remains at 1msmore than competitive given that only OLED panels are capable of lowering this level and reaching 0.6 ms, all without giving up G-SYNC + NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer under IPS technology, i.e. bright and solid colors, and without forgetting about VESA HDR 400.

As we have already seen with the older brother AOC AGON AG493UCX2 the function HDR pays damn better when it comes to pure gaming and simple, or if you plan to watch a movie: i colors they will turn out hyper realisticsoft when needed and piercing in terms of lighting while we advise against keeping this function active on a daily basis for example when you surf on Google or write a text as the reds and whites will be too vivid and annoying. HDR 400 is optimal but only in terms of play or film entertainment, in any case you can disconnect it quickly and without too many problems.

The integrated speakers guarantee excellent sound performance, certainly we are not talking about a sound bar, but about speakers capable of making us immersed in the game just enough not to force us to buy additional speakers. The classic is also present ScreenShielda device that we have come to appreciate with practical use and which embeds the monitor by eliminating light refractions and making the game much easier in visual terms.

Fundamental the quick switch, also this now essential element in the brand, i.e. a practical keypad where you can pre-set up to 3 game profiles (of the six available) in order to change them on the fly with a practical click. Profiles: FPS, Racing Games, RTS And gaming 1 / 2 as well as a profile personalized by the user thanks to the dedicated software system. In fact, in the practical game you may find yourself comfortable by connecting a console like Playstation 5 or Xbox Series X|S supporting them up to 120Hz (maximum refresh of next generation consoles).
