Many factors of monitor performance can affect your gaming experience. Speed and responsiveness are of course the most important, but the quality of static and moving images is equally important. Many gamers distinguish between displays by resolution. This is where we must consider the balance between the graphics processing power of the PC and the number of pixels it must move on the screen.
We have reviewed a lot 1080p (1920×1080) 25- and 27-inch size monitors, I found them to perform well. Some run at 240 or even 360 Hz, allowing very high frame rates. Obviously, this makes the motion resolution better. But when pixel density comes into the discussion, how big is too big?
AOC C32G2ZE tries to answer this question with a 32-inch curved surface 1080p will Control panel. It runs at 240 Hz and supports AMD Free synchronization High quality.You get DCI-P3 Color but no High dynamic range; However, there is an HDR emulation mode available.
There is no doubt that C32G2ZE places great emphasis on gameplay.It also has good build quality and is 330 USD As for writing. So, apart from pixel density, everything needed for a gaming display is there.Can this huge 1080p screen be compatible with The best gaming monitor?

AOC C32G2ZE is unusual.We reviewed our complete Monitor the comment database And no single FHD monitor larger than 27 inches can be found. This means that the pixel density of the AOC is 69 pixels per inch (ppi), and our preferred best point is 109ppi. C32G2ZE is equivalent to 4K Resolution, 65-inch TV (68ppi). But you will be sitting 3-4 feet away from the C32G2ZE.
Of course, the benefit is game performance. The operating frequency of C32G2ZE is 240 Hz, which can reach the highest speed without expensive graphics card. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium down to 48 Hz and has low frame rate compensation (LFC), so you will never see frame tearing. We can also run Nvidia Synchronize In the absence of certification (see How to run G-Sync on FreeSync monitor). The display also adds a nice overload to minimize motion blur.
AOC C32G2ZE assembly and accessories
C32G2ZE is divided into three pieces-base, vertical and panel. You don’t need any tools to assemble it, the finished unit is very sturdy, but lighter than the size it implies.
AOC’s displays include HDMI and DisplayPort cables (see DisplayPort and HDMI), and IEC wire for internal power supply.
Product 360: AOC C32G2ZE
The front bezel on the AOC C32G2ZE is very thin, only 7 mm, and is flush-mounted. It will disappear when there is no image. The bottom strip is 23 mm wide, with a small AOC logo and a little red trim. A closer look will reveal a subtle facet effect on the bottom edge, which we have never seen before. Repeat the red accent where the base is connected to the upright. This part has a convenient cable hole to keep your wiring tidy.
Except for the tilt of -3.5/21.5 degrees, the bracket has no adjustments. For ordinary desktops, its height is moderate, and we can keep it perfectly vertical in the game. This is the best way to use the curvature of the 1800R.
There are more red accents in the back. The two chevrons in the photo appear to be illuminated, but they are only reflective. AOC C32G2ZE does not have RGB.
You can remove the post to expose the 100 mm VESA mount, you must provide your own fasteners for it. The stylish grill keeps the internal components cool without the need for a fan.
AOC C32G2ZE does not have built-in speakers, but the sound is transmitted to the 3.5 mm audio port through HDMI and DisplayPort connections, you can The best gaming headset Or active speakers. The two HDMI ports are version 2.0, and the single DisplayPort is version 1.2. All support Adaptive-Sync, but you need DisplayPort to get the full 240 Hz.
OSD function of AOC C32G2ZE
The on-screen display (OSD) of the C32G2ZE is the familiar ribbon menu of AOC, which appears at the bottom of the screen. We missed the joysticks that come with many gaming monitors and had to settle for a set of control keys. After a while it became intuitive, but the joystick is still better and faster.
The OSD is divided into six sub-menus.
In the brightness menu, you can of course get brightness and contrast, as well as seven picture modes, three Gamma Presets, dynamic contrast and three HDR simulation modes. AOC C32G2ZE does not accept HDR signals, but tries to simulate the effect using three HDR modes called pictures, games and movies. None of them can really replicate the look of HDR, but it may appeal to some people. In these modes, the brightness and color controls are grayed out, so you cannot adjust them. However, they are not really necessary, because the high contrast of the VA panel itself can provide a very dynamic picture.
In the “Color Settings” menu, you will find three color temperature presets, and one RGB Mode to correctly change the original DCI-P3 color gamut to the sRGB standard. We will show you its metrics on page 3. If you choose user mode, the RGB slider is very precise, allowing us to achieve high accuracy.
In the game settings menu, if you have difficulty seeing the dark areas of the image, you can brighten the shadow details. This is of course a factor when playing on a monitor with deep black levels such as AOC C32G2ZE.
You can also increase the color saturation, use the low blue light mode, adjust the overload level (medium best), switch Adaptive-Sync and turn on the frame rate indicator. If you turn off FreeSync Premium/Adaptive-Sync, the backlight strobe that reduces blur is activated. It has an adjustable pulse width, so you can balance the reduction of blur and brightness. Less blur also means less light. We found that it did not make the moving image smoother. 240 Hz is fine when Adaptive-Sync is turned on.
AOC C32G2ZE calibration settings
AOC C32G2ZE works out of the box in its standard mode. It has some minor flaws and should be calibrated to get the best image.
Grayscale It’s a bit too red, and the gamma is too light. Some changes to the RGB slider and the switch from Gamma 1 to Gamma 3 solve these problems.
This is one of the highest contrast monitors we have tested. Our adjustments make the picture very rich and textured without the need for dynamic contrast.
We do not recommend using HDR emulation modes because they will not make the image better. We will show you their effect on color and gamma on page 3.
The following are our recommended calibration settings for AOC C32G2ZE.
|Brightness 200 nits||70 (minimum 137 nights)|
|Color temperature user||Red 47, Green 50, Blue 52|
Use AOC C32G2ZE for games and hands-on operations
AOC C32G2ZE posed an interesting problem. On the one hand, its color accuracy and contrast make it very attractive. But the pixel density is only 67ppi, and you can’t help but see the pixel structure at a viewing distance of 3-4 feet. We spent a lot of time exploring games, videos, and still images to understand how this unique display performs under real-world conditions.
When the font scaling is set to 100%, the text is fully readable, but not as sharp as on a smaller display. We can easily read news articles or use productivity apps. But the text is softer than we are used to. If the small icon is less clear than normal, then the small icon looks clear.
However, we have no complaints about color or contrast. Both are top-notch. The black levels look deep, making the picture popular. If you need to increase the image in a bright room, there is also enough brightness available. Color saturation makes watching YouTube videos a pleasure. The extra contrast has a positive effect, making the colors vibrant but not glaring.
When playing games, the AOC C32G2ZE is not as clear as a high-resolution screen in action games, but it can provide excellent contrast and color in all situations, which makes the details stand out.exist Eternal doom The hell-like scenes in the game are fiery red and the texture is very good. It is also satisfying to chop down enemies, as their fragments are flying around the screen.
Call of Duty: World War II It is roughly the same as a good sense of reality. The character’s face is clear and natural. Outdoor scenes are rendered with excellent contrast. Highlights such as metallic reflections and sweat beads are very prominent. The color of this game is also very vivid. The image is composed of many earth tones and subtle shades of green, and we feel incredibly hanging.
There is no problem with video processing. Under 1080p, we can increase the frame rate to 240 frames per second (fps). According to the screen frame counter of AOC C32G2ZE, refresh rarely changes. Visually, we have never seen the frame torn or any hesitation. Unable to perceive input delay.
The only indicator of the low pixel density of the display is the slight softness during fast-moving actions. This is not due to any issues with LCD motion blur or monitor overload. Rather, this is the effect of the visible pixel structure. This is a subjective observation. Different players perceive it differently, depending on how close they are to the screen and how sharp their eyesight is. But this has never been a distraction for us.
Despite the flaws, the large size of the AOC C32G2ZE, more specifically, the extra height did help us enter the gaming environment.
