Screens are usually easy to operate without major difficulties. This also applies to the tested AG272FCX. It is controlled and configured via a small remote control that is connected to the back of the monitor via a cable. Operation is intuitive.
Further possibilities for individual influence on the screen are offered with regard to ergonomic settings. The monitor can be rotated, tilted and adjusted in height. This makes it easy for the user to adjust the screen to their preferred sitting position, height and other circumstances.
As expected, the overall operation is simple and meets the requirements that are usually placed on it. In short, it is practical and simple.
Since it is a gaming screen, there are many small special features, especially at the technical level, which should help to make playing not only a pastime but a real experience. Flickerfree technology and “Shadow Control” are two technologies that are quite common in the gaming sector and are also used in the AG272FCX. They allow playing without flickering and flickering of the screen and provide a brightening of darkened areas on the screen. In addition to these two useful extras, AOC trumps with various possible presets that can be selected by the user. These “presets” are designed for different gaming scenarios and game types. You can also save and recall your own settings.
While the two technologies first introduced in the gaming sector are now standard equipment, the “presets” represent a unique selling point that definitely needs to be mentioned in positive terms.
In addition to a DisplayPort input, AOC offers two HDMI connectors and an analog VGA port for the AG272FCX. Of course you can also find USB ports and speakers. The choice of ports is more than sufficient, but a DisplayPort port would not have been wrong. The monitor also has a special extra for gamers: a headset holder.
