About this deal
While talking about its downside the main cons is the adjustability of the monitor, it only allows you to tilt the display to a limited angle that’s it, there is no height, and swivel/portrait adjustability next is the lack of dynamic range. Indeed, the G2590PX G2 doesn’t even have what would normally be termed a high quality IPS or VA panel, AOC opting here for TN panel tech.
Again, the overall look and feel of the screen falls short of the latest HDR panels for sheer wow factor and vibrancy.Many of them, such as the preset color modes for various modes of gaming including RTS or first-person shooters, are arguably of little value.
Connectors and interfaces changed over the years, the most notable change in recent years being the one from VGA to DVI. Want to watch a Blu-ray movie in full quality, enjoy games in high resolution or read crisp text in office applications?Adjust grey levels for better picture detail and brighten dark areas or sink them back into blackness on the fly, without affecting the rest of the display. But at CES, Nvidia announced it was unlocking its GPUs to enable support for FreeSync, making the feature much more appealing. It even comes equipped with a very competent Adaptive-Sync feature that will also enable you to play your games while experiencing a buttery smooth image.
The design of the AOC G2590FX monitor is clearly aimed at gamers with its red accents, which, thankfully, aren’t too aggressive. In fact, that ‘G2’ suffix refers to G2 Esports, a multi-team esports organisation based in Berlin that now works in partnership with AOC and uses AOC gaming displays at its training facilities. Alternatively, depending on your region, you might want to take a look at the Acer KG251QF and the HP Omen 25– both of which are based on the same panel as the G2590FX/PX.A vital part of this is having a fast monitor that can reproduce with fidelity the movement of characters on your screen. For a more professional approach, you should definitely look at VA or IPS panels which offer better color fidelity and contrast ratios. In static image quality terms, you’d have to class the AOC G2590PX G2 as moderate going on mediocre.
