I have never really paid all that much attention to the monitor that I had hooked up to my computer until I got serious about gaming.
I pretty much figured that all monitors were just about the same, and the only thing that I really cared about in regards to my monitor was whether or not it was a flat screen or one of those oversized monstrosities that used to be pretty commonplace.
Once I started to dive headfirst into the real gaming world, and got serious about my hardware, I learned that there is a world of difference between monitors today – and that the AOC i2757FH stands head and shoulders above most of them!
If you’ve been searching for a top-of-the-line monitor that will reproduce brilliant color in extreme ultra high definition – all without threatening to break your bank account in the process – you need to get your hands on this killer monitor!
It has absolutely everything you could ever want (well, not really everything, otherwise I’d have a huge hot tub but you hopefully get my point).
It has HDMI ports (two of them) so that you can hook up your computer or a gaming system – or anything else using HDMI such as a Blu-Ray Player, for that matter – along with other loaded features that make this an absolute dream to own.
Even while I use it for non-gaming purposes, like checking email or watching Netflix, the monitor does wonders in terms of visual quality. It makes a huge difference whether or not you’re using a high-class monitor like this one, or if you use a standard monitor that comes packaged with a gaming desktop.

The resolution is off the charts, the color reproduction is absolutely incredible, and it has to be one of the slimmest monitors I’ve ever seen.
There are a couple of things I was not exactly crazy about when I bought this monitor (and I’ll touch on those in this AOC i2757 gaming monitor review), but the handful of shortcomings this monitor brings to the table are nowhere near deal breakers.
What I really liked about the AOC i2757FH – Pros
There are quite a few things I appreciated from this monitor that make it a complete package.
The resolution (1920 x 1080), for example, is absolutely stunning, and the pixel density guarantees that you are going to enjoy picture-perfect and crystal-clear images unlike cheaper models out there. Combine that with the fact that its refresh rate (60 Hz/120 Hz) is right up there with the best of the best in the LED world and you’re going to enjoy super smooth action without much blur or fuzziness to speak of – of course, zero blur is impossible to guarantee and is hard for the human eye to detect anyway.
On top of that, there are two HDMI ports you can easily plug into, a VGA port, a headphone jack – that can be used to feed external speakers as well – and an audio input for a microphone or recording device.
Combine that with a gorgeous external design that keeps this monitor looking slim and trim, and you would have to be at least a little bit crazy not to get your hands on this AOC monitor.
A couple of things to note on the AOC i2757FH – Cons
There were really only two things that I wasn’t exactly wild about when I bought my new monitor, and it’s important that I touch on them – even though I don’t think you are going to be all that upset by either of them.
The first is that there is a lack of USB support on this particular monitor. I got used to having an extra hub or two included in my monitor to extend the utility of my set up, but it’s not really that big of a deal. Though most people don’t use these ports anyway, it’s just nice to have that option if you really needed it.
The other is that it isn’t quite as flexible as I would have really enjoyed it to be. Sure, you’ll be able to tilt it back and forth to hit a sweet spot as far as viewing angles are concerned, but it really would have been over the top if I was able to tilt it in a 360 degree motion, like a few of the recently released models have done.
Again, definitely should not stop you from getting something of this caliber, especially when it is going for a decent price.
AOC i2757FH Review: Final Verdict
At the end of the day, if you have been searching for a top-quality monitor, you really are going to have a difficult time finding much better than the AOC i27575FH – for a price that is, in my opinion, slightly higher than the average gaming monitor, there is a ton of packed quality.
I’ll give it a score of 9.2/10.
