    Struggling to see how this is worth double the likes of the prettier Acer H277HU etc, does the refresh rate make it worth that much?
    That said, Ive just checked the prices of the Acer and its gone up about a hundred quid since I bought my last couple.

    Fair enough, gsync would be handy at times I guess depending on the game. :)

    I would pay extra to have the monitor checked first for the Blb and dead pixels if this service existed, but I shouldn't have to.

    Buying an 144hz ips gsync is a lottery doesn't matter who you choose at the moment. To many people say they can live with it and keep them so the manufacturer ain't gonna sort out qc.

    I went with the xb271hu which I have sent back. I would have ordered the aoc as I like the look of it and aoc seem to have good warrenty and customer service but it's too late , the company are sending me out a new one. If this new one is shyt I'm going with aoc. If its gonna have blb it may aswell be cheap blb.

    Thanks - is it straightforward to return with OC in this case? I normally use Amazon because it is easy with them...

    OC will charge you for returns (indirectly, as you have to pay to ship it back), that other place won't.

    The panel on this monitor will be the same as in the acer and asus monitors like this

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus...descreen-led-monitor-black-red-mo-088-as.html.

    You should also keep in mind that HDR monitors are coming in Q2 maybe. Tho they be overpirced. reading anywhere from $1200-$1600-$2000 :D

    But maybe they will make a cheap 2k HDR one day :p

    Me too, waiting for the AG352UCG and hope AOC use good anti-glace coating on this.

    I got the AG241QG 24" before Xmas, put it straight back for return because of the very bad grainy coating.

    Be interesting to see a review on here. My dad has a lower spec AOC monitor and it's good.

    received today only few hours in but here is my quick verdict

    > Good:

    - 165Hz with G-Sync is amazing, versus my dell 25inch IPS, playing F1 2016, it is like the game has had a massive upgrade. So silky smooth.

    - Great colours, you can tell difference from TN for sure.

    - Great for normal operating - word, excel.

    > Bad:

    - Bit of backlight bleed but not as bad as I thought it might be. Not noticeable in normal usage.

    - Controls are poor.

    - Not as slick as some other manufactures to setup.

    Verdict - 80%

    You got a picture yourself of the backlight bleed? I'd like to see one.

    Maybe I use to the light matte coating on my u2515h. :p;) And I have a 7 years old TN 21" Benq as well, and I did compare both side by side, the Benq came out better. The white background on AG241QG just look grainy.

    I just believe the manufacture should do better because it cost £390 at that time which wasn't cheap for 24".
