The AOC CQ27G2U/BK allows you to play games in QHD. Images on this 27-inch gaming monitor are 2 times sharper than on the 27G2U/BK, so you'll see every detail. The 'C' in the name stands for curved. Because the screen is curved and virtually bezel-less, you'll have less distractions while gaming. The 144Hz refresh rate means you can smoothly play all your games, provided that your your video card can handle the number of fps. The 1ms response time prevents ghosting. As a result, you'll always be that much faster than your opponent. You can configure FreeSync to match the refresh rate to the number of fps produced by your video card. This helps you prevent image stutter. You can tilt and rotate the monitor and adjust its height for a comfortable posture. The integrated speakers allow you to play sounds from games.
Note: for QHD gaming, you need a powerful video card, such as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU or AMD Radeon RX 5000 series GPU, an Xbox One, Xbox Series X or S, or a PlayStation 5.

The product looks nice and is definitely something you can use when you don't mind ghosting. A simple test on https://www.testufo.com/ghosting will show you that this screen has A LOT of after images. Hence I do not recommend this screen if you dislike the after images you can see here. Of course, it has an overdrive function but this is limited and in most cases will not resolve the issue it has. It also comes with 2 black bars which you can see on a white background, this can be somewhat annoying as well. If you want to use this screen for day to day use, such as for word, facebook, outlook, then it's fine for the price I guess. Otherwise, if you're thinking of using this screen for gaming then I wouldn't recommend it and I would suggest you to look for something better.
