The AOC U28G2XU/BK is a 4K UHD monitor specifically designed for gamers. With its 28-inch size and impressive 144Hz refresh rate at 1ms response time, it aims to provide an excellent gaming experience.
While the monitor may be more significant and bulkier compared to your current setup of two 24-inch monitors, it still offers a good size for various tasks such as working with Photoshop, browsing webpages, and video editing. The UHD resolution of 3840×2160 ensures a crisp picture quality, and the immersive size adds to the overall experience.
A 28-inch screen is considered sufficient for gaming purposes, particularly for FPS and MOBA games. Larger screens might not be desirable for these genres.
In terms of design, you appreciate AOC displays and their old aluminum stands. However, the plastic feet on this particular monitor do not meet your preferences. AOC U28G2XU/BK has a thin and sleek design, it can certainly enhance the overall aesthetics of your setup, especially when used alongside another AOC monitor. The small bezel between the two monitors can create a seamless and visually pleasing multi-monitor experience. Having a cohesive and visually appealing setup can contribute to an enjoyable gaming and working environment.
The monitor still utilizes physical buttons for configuration, which you find somewhat inconvenient. It often requires multiple attempts to get the settings right. However, once the configuration is set, there is usually no need for further adjustments.
The U28G2XU/BK has built-in 3W speakers, but you do not use them for gaming or movies. They might be handy in specific situations where audio is necessary. Overall, you believe this monitor is a good choice in its price range and have not found any competitors offering similar features and performance within that range.
