Who's it for?

This is a monitor designed for professional-level gaming, which is perfectly suited to perform everyday computing tasks and enjoy moments of multimedia entertainment, thanks to its sharp definition and slim frame.

Its greatest advantages, without a doubt, are none other than its high refresh rate ( 144 hertz ) and short response time ( 1 ms ), designed to ensure a truly fluid gaming experience, regardless of the demands of your favorite titles. 

Couple that with a curved display of 1500 R and a minimalistic set of bezels and you've got yourself a fully immersive experience that's good for both gaming and enjoying multimedia content. Consider the fact that it's also not incredibly ostentatious -like other gaming rigs - and you can see that the AOC C24G1 is suitable for just about every user looking for a cheap but good monitor. 

Design of the C24G1: A 1080P 144 Hz Gaming Monitor

First of all, it is important to highlight the quality build of the c24g1, something we frankly don't see a lot within this price point. Specifically, the matte black hard plastic chassis is complemented by attractive red details present mainly on the back, and on the lower frame of the screen.

Its 1500R curvature, on the other hand, offers that much-desired sensation of immersion when playing games, allowing, in addition, to adjust the screen at the level of inclination (-4º to 21.5º), height (up to 130 mm), and rotation ( -34º to 34º), depending on your needs as a player. 

Sure enough, you can't set this monitor up vertically as you can with other models such as the recently reviewed ViewSonic XG2402 but it's a small price to pay.

Moving onto the dimensions, this model takes up 21.13 x 20.18 x 9.64 inches (with the stand) and weighs about 9.83 pounds . Optionally, you can disassemble the included bracket to mount it on the wall with the help of a compatible VESA support (100 x 100 mm).

Ports and Connectivity

The AOC C24G1 reviewed has 3 video outputs on its back: a conventional VGA, a DisplayPort type, and 2 HDMI 1.4 connectors, to simplify the connection of your desktop computer, video game console, and up to 2 additional monitors to enjoy a more immersive gaming experience as many users have already been quick to point out in the AOC C24G1 reddit feed.

Despite not incorporating stereo speakers, this model does have its respective 3.5 mm audio output, through which you can connect headphones or external speakers to cover the sound section. Having said that we're not going to hold that against the AOC monitor because, in all honesty, it's quite rare for us to come across a monitor that has a decent set of speakers, even amongst the high-end models, it's quite a rare event. 

Gaming performance of the AOC C24G1

All it takes is one quick look at customer reviews of the C24G1, to corroborate the incredible performance of its 144 hertz refresh rate and 1 ms response time, when playing the most demanding titles, including shooters, battle royale, RPGs, and e -Sports, to name a few.

Likewise, your gaming sessions will greatly appreciate the compatibility with AMD FreeSync Premium, a technology that synchronizes the refresh rate of your dedicated graphics with that of the monitor to deliver an experience free of tearing and stuttering. Basically, a hardcore gamer's dream come true.

Additionally, its Flicker-Free technology will take care of eliminating that annoying flickering effect not only when playing games, but also when working and watching multimedia content. Overall, we totally get why this AOC monitor is killing it here.

The AOC C24G1 is an excellent solution for everyday computing work, whether at home or in the office, as its 24-inch VA display boasts a sharp Full HD resolution, an optimal brightness of 250 cd / m2, and a panoramic aspect ratio of 16: 9

This is also better from a gaming standpoint as most state-of-the-art 1080p 144 Hz monitors these days are popping up with 21:10 aspect ratios. This can be comfortable for work but game manufacturers aren't really there yet so you end up having a visually unappealing experience. Case and point: the LG 34WN80C-B, amazing monitor but complicated for gaming fans. 

Finally, its dynamic contrast ratio rises to 80M: 1 and, to enjoy a colorimetry that is as close to reality, it bets on a coverage of 96% of the sRGB spectrum, equivalent to a reproduction of up to 16.7 million colors on the screen. 

Let's get one thing out of the way, these last couple of metrics are pretty standard and they can mean pretty much whatever the manufacturer wants them to mean. 

They are big numbers that sound nice and impressive when you have no clue as to what to look for when buying a monitor but in reality, all this translates to is a good quality image in this particular case scenario - as most customers will attest towards - .

Conclusion: Is the AOC C24G1 worth buying?

In short, the AOC C24G1 reviewed today is one of the most complete solutions offered by the current market, especially if you are looking to experience that extra fluidity and immersion that conventional models cannot offer at an ultra-competitive price.

Its installation is quite simple, and if you need to adjust it to your particular needs, you will have no problem doing it, thanks to the versatility of its easily adjustable support in height, inclination, and rotation.

Couple that with the AMD FreeSync tech, a curved display, Full HD resolution and a 1 ms response time and you've got yourself a pretty good monitor overall that's especially well suited for gamers but will be sure to satisfy most use cases regardless.
