6 Reasons For

AOC Has Excellent Reviews for Its Flatpanel Monitors

On average AOC medium monitors have excellent reviews as do all PC screens produced by AOC.

Good Picture Quality

One AOC G2778VQ-27 owner who reviewed the product said that it had good colour saturation.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other medium monitors that were released in the last 12 months, the G2778VQ-27 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider including the Asus VP278H[plb_3195871_price], or the Acer B246HL[plb_3782967_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in speaker including the Acer XF240H[plb_3086845_price].

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the AOC G2778VQ-27

Released Nine Months Ago

It was nine months ago when AOC released the G2778VQ-27.

Running Costs Are OK

The G2778VQ-27 has an average running cost of £55 over 5 years based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 395 recently released medium monitors.

LCD Display Type

The G2778VQ-27 has an LCD display type which is better than the LED display type found on most similar spec PC monitors that came out around the same time as it.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC screens that have an LCD Display and we think cheaper PC screens such as the Asus VP278H[plb_3195871_price], and the Philips 243V5LSB[plb_3310370_price] is also worth considering.

Flatpanel monitors with a better display type that might be worth considering include the iiyama B2483HSU-B1DP[plb_3332296_price] (LED), or the Samsung CF390[plb_3420340_price] (LED) which is also cheaper.
