The CQ32G1 Gaming Monitor from AOC has been manufactured to the highest quality. The monitor's luminosity and colour display are particularly noteworthy. The image quality is impressive due to a high contrast ratio and a natural and strong representation of the colours. The viewing angle stability is high and the displayed contents can still be easily read from all different viewing angles. The response time of 1 ms is very low, but due to the VA panels, streaking occurs faster than with the AGON AG273QCG. Also to be criticized is the small range of functions, for example, the screen is not height adjustable and has very few connections.
The CQ32G1 Gaming Monitor from AOC comes in a package printed with information that can be easily opened. A user manual is included on the driver CD included with the unit. The displayed content is displayed on the 31.5-inch curved monitor in QHD (2560 x 1440). A driver CD and a warranty card are included, as well as a power cable, an HDMI cable and a Displayport cable.
Thanks to the one-click technology, you can set up the screen in a few easy steps. Then, connect the screen to the power supply and a computer and start the configuration.
In order to be able to evaluate and subsequently compare the image quality, we have developed a test image. The image can be used to analyse contrast, brightness, colour representation and sharpness. The monitor has a very high contrast ratio. The colour blocks in our test image are clearly visible and can be clearly differentiated from each other.
The brightness of the screen is 300 cd/m². The different colour blocks on our test image can be easily differentiated from each other.
The monitor convinces with high colour fidelity. The displayed colours make a rich, strong and at the same time natural impression on me.
Whether dynamic or standing sequences, the images are displayed pin-sharp and in good quality.
The content displayed on the screen is not only easy to read when you sit in front of the screen, but also from different horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Colours remain true to the original, only the brightness changes.
With a reaction time of 1 ms, fast movements are displayed pin sharp and jerk-free.
In comparison to the AGON AG273QCG from AOC, the CQ32G1 Gaming Monitor is the significantly leaner version in terms of ergonomics. The screen is not height adjustable and can only be tilted forward. The tilt angle is between -5 °C and 23 °C.
To enter the settings menu, press the fourth button below the screen. There are 5 buttons in total. The labels are difficult to read. Use the buttons marked with arrows to navigate through the menu. There you can adjust the luminosity, colour settings, OSD settings, image intensifier and game settings. The other buttons allow you to choose between the connection source, certain presets and a crosshair, which is especially useful for shooters.
