The AOC AG273QX is currently more expensive than its sister model AG273QCX. The gaming properties of both devices with the good response time, the hardly measurable latency and the many extras and setting options are a dream for gamers. In contrast, 165 instead of 144 Hz hardly play a role in practice. So if the curved display is ignored, the devices in this class are practically identical. The very good base, the background lighting, the operating options and the other extras such as the DisplayHDR 400 are also almost identical.
However, paying the extra price can still make sense, since the all-round properties of the AG273QX are clearly better. The factory setting has significantly lower deviations in the gray values, and the sRGB mode also impressed us. Together with good values for the illumination and the image homogeneity as well as an sRGB color space coverage of 99%, the device is also suitable for image processing in the amateur field.
There are still few options available for external playback. Basically, however, a big step is made towards the all-rounder without having to accept any compromises in terms of the still very good gaming properties. This model can therefore not only be recommended to pure gamers, but also to a broader group of buyers.
