Slightly more than 1,000 Euro costs AOCs new screen with the curved VA panel. It can also display 120 Hz and HDR400.
The monitor manufacturer AOC has added a new product to its range. The Agon AG493UCX is a 49-inch screen with an ultrawide-32-to-9 panel. AOC relies on the relatively inexpensive VA technology here, which, however, can cause streaks especially in fast games. Golem.de already noticed this with the 43 inch Asus PG43UQ. Nevertheless, the manufacturer promises good response times and an anti-ghosting function
The display offers a standard resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels. This is quite common for 49-inch monitors in 32-to-9 format. The panel illuminates with a maximum of 550 cd/m², is anti-reflective and designed for HDR400. However, the device only achieves the higher color depth via FRC instead of native 10 bits. Interesting for gaming: The monitor has a frame rate of 120 Hz. It is also curved around a radius of 1,800 mm (1800R). With 90 percent Adobe RGB color coverage – 121 percent SRGB – some images can also be edited on it.
USB-C and display port
The panel is mounted on an adjustable stand. This can be adjusted in height by 10 centimetres and rotated by about 31 degrees on the Z axis. On the Y-axis, inclinations of -3.5 to 13.5 degrees are provided. An unusual feature is that the monitor can also be operated via USB-C. Up to now, only a few gaming oriented monitors can do this. Alternatively, there are two display ports 1.4, two HDMI 2.0b ports and additionally a USB hub with four USB A 3.2 Gen1 sockets.

AOC already has the monitor in stock at some online shops. In this country, it costs just under 1,100 Euros and is thus somewhat below the standard price for this category, which is between 1,200 and 1,500 Euros. However, there are also similarly sized panels for less than 1,000 Euros, but then without gaming features such as high frame rates.
