  1. Excellent review you have done for the aoc-cq321g1 monitor. With the fast paced development in the world of gaming, everything seems to evolve so fast and one just needs to get worthy monitors to match up with the crazy abilities of games these days. What I like most about this monitor is its response time. Its very fast and also the curve. It will help in making the gaming experience much cool. Seriously, I like the monitor and I will try it out. If the price is within my budget range, then I will gladly go for it.

  2. The ‘like real-life’ images and motions is what does it for me. i think the 2560×1440 resolution is quite high for clearer images.

    Yea, this is probably best for serious gamers. I’m yet to get there as I hear once you immerse yourself, you will not leave easily. This can make the best gift for a serious gamer…So, whats the best screen for casual gamers? 

    Thanks for this awesome review.

  3. Hi Jose,

    Thanks for providing this review of the AOC CQ32G1. I’ve recently started to make a reasonably decent amount of money playing fortnite online. I think I may be able to do this full time but need a powerful device to give myself a more competitive edge. Would you suggest that someone like myself looks at the TN panels?
