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.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
