AOC’s new Agon Pro monitors are the star of the show this weekend. The new flagship gaming monitors sport a MiniLED display, which brings big benefits for HDR thanks to its higher contrast, brightness and wider colour gamut compared to a traditional LCD panel. MiniLED is also less prone to burn in compared to OLED, making it a suitable alternative for PCs.
