Press Release – AGON by AOC Launches the 27G2ZN3-BK: 27-inch 280Hz Monitor

AGON by AOC—one of the world’s leading gaming monitor and IT accessories brands – is proud to introduce the AOC GAMING 27G2ZN3/BK, a vanguard monitor that combines esports-level performance with unprecedented affordability. Designed for competitive gamers who demand the best without breaking the bank, the 27″ (68.6 cm) Full HD AOC GAMING 27G2ZN3/BK features an astonishing 280 Hz refresh rate, very low input lag, fast response times (up to 1 ms GtG and 0.5 ms MPRT), Adaptive-Sync for VRR synchronization, and a high-contrast Fast VA panel, setting a new standard for accessible, competitive gaming excellence.

The AOC GAMING 27G2ZN3/BK combines the advantages of many technologies. Thanks to its vivid, contrast-rich Fast VA panel, the colour reproduction is lifelike, enabling gamers to enjoy story-driven, action games with deep black levels and wide gamut coverage (123.3% sRGB area and 92.2% DCI-P3 coverage). For fast-paced, competitive games, its 280 Hz refresh rate and low input lag means the game world is tightly connected to the user. By utilising the MBR (Motion Blur Reduction) setting, the monitor achieves 0.5 ms MPRT (Moving Picture Response Time), significantly improving motion clarity with backlight strobing. This enables gamers to track opponents more accurately and react to their movements in fast-paced scenes. All in all, the 27G2ZN3/BK will surely be similar to a meta loadout for most gamers: one of the most budget-friendly, high refresh rate gaming monitors to excel at any game one can throw at it.

AOC Gaming – Every millisecond matters

The AOC GAMING 27G2ZN3/BK’s 280 Hz refresh rate delivers impressive fluidity and responsiveness. This lightning-fast refresh rate is essential for fast-paced games like first-person shooters, racing titles, and fighting games. In these games, split-second reactions can mean the difference between victory and defeat. The higher the refresh rate is, the lower the input lag becomes. The monitor’s low input lag ensures that every command is executed instantly. This provides players with a seamless connection between actions and the on-screen result.

High-contrast, responsive Fast VA panel for immersive visuals

The AOC GAMING 27G2ZN3/BK features a 27″ Fast VA panel with Full HD resolution. This panel deliver vivid colours and deep blacks for an immersive gaming experience. The Fast VA panel technology offers an exceptional native contrast ratio (4000:1), ensuring that every detail stands out, from the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights. With a brightness of 300 nits and HDR10 compliance, this monitor brings games to life with stunning clarity and depth.

Seamless compatibility and ergonomic design

The monitor features 2x HDMI 2.0 ports and 1x DisplayPort 1.4, providing ample connectivity options.

To ensure comfort during long gaming sessions, the 27G2ZN3/BK comes with a 130 mm height-adjustable stand. This stand has tilt, swivel and pivot functionality. Gamers can easily adjust the monitor to their preferred viewing angle, reducing neck and eye strain for extended gaming comfort. Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue mode further enhance usability when gaming during the nighttime.
