While AOC has already announced a slew of high-performance gaming monitors this year, they don’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. Another high-end gaming monitor has been added to the ever-expanding AGON family, this time equipped with an impressive 27-inch 1440p 240Hz mini-LED panel.
The new AGON AG274QZM was announced recently, with an official release date of June 2022. It will deliver excellent gaming performance thanks to a plethora of tailored specifications that include a 1ms GTG response time. Thanks to mini-LED backlight technology, the AG274QZM will also offer stunning HDR performance that has been VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified.
If you like the idea of the AG274QGM but don’t have the performance power to dive 300Hz at 1440p resolution, the AG74QZM could be the one for you.

AOC AG274QZM design
As far as design goes, the AOC AG274QZM looks relatively similar to the other monitors within the AGON family. It features a predominantly black design with slender bezels on the top and sides. The bottom bezel features an AOC logo alongside some of the monitor’s VRR functionality.
A large V-shaped stand can be seen protruding from the underside of the monitor, equipped with a logo projection system that illuminates your desk with the AGON logo. The materials of the stand and the body of the monitor are mainly unknown at this stage, however, at this price, you’d expect decent materials to be used throughout.
Moving to the rear of the monitor and we’re welcomed by a familiar story. The stand takes on a classic red-on-black color theme, with the rear of the monitor featuring a garish design that definitely leans more towards the gamer, than the office user. A handle can be found at the top of the monitor alongside some more AGON branding.
AOC has also utilized detachable flappy panels on the AG274QZM, allowing competitive gamers to become more immersed when it matters most.
AOC AGON AG274QZM price
The AGON AG274QZM will retail for £999.99, making it one of the market’s most expensive 1440p monitors – if not the most expensive. Of course, the majority of that is made up thanks to its speedy 240Hz refresh rate and mini-LED backlight technology.
It’ll be interesting to see just how popular mini-LED monitors are, especially when you consider just how expensive they list for.
Should you buy the AOG AG274QZM when it releases?
The AOC AGON AG274QZM seems to be a great choice for gamers who are looking to increase visual fidelity and general smoothness. The new AG274QZM looks set to deliver on all fronts, offering a nice blend of speed, response, and color.
However, at a shade under £1,000, it is one of the market’s most expensive panels. That said, there’s no denying the stunning HDR and color accuracy this monitor brings to the table. If you’re looking for a high refresh rate monitor that performs well in all types of games, the AG274QZM could be exactly what you’re looking for.
