AOC Q3279VWF: a multi-purpose 2K monitor at a very good price

AOC Q3279VWF

The AOC Q3279VWF is a new monitor of large size and resolution that is now available on the Spanish market. It is perfect for gaming and for anything you do in general, and it offers great specifications if we take into account how affordable it is.

You already saw how the monitor market is doing thanks to our October monitors guide. Good panels are expensive and there is maybe an excessive focus on gaming, or rather on their marketing. Adding the word gaming to a monitor’s name apparently equals to a boost in sales (and prices), as it is a direct way to sell new monitors while also counterbalancing the OEM’s desktop PC market fall.

It is important to mention that not every user needs $1,000 gaming or professionals monitors, although if you need one and you have a big budget, there are real gems in both segments.

BenQ surprises everyone by launching two Zowie mice

Zowie, the gaming-oriented sub-brand of the monitor manufacturer BenQ, just surprised everybody by launching two new Zowie mice. The new models, named EC1-B and EC2-B, are characterized by practically being the same mouse model, although both of them are meant for different hand sizes.

I think all of us already know the monitor brand BenQ, which, in my opinion, creates monitors with the best balance in terms of quality, performance and price point, and that are incredibly durable. For example, my wife has one of the brand’s monitors because I gave it to her as a gift five years ago, and after calibrating it with a colorimeter, she does not want to get rid of it due to how good it is.

Zowie is this Taiwanese manufacturer’s second sub-brand, although since its launching, this sub-brand has been focused more on peripherals aimed at the gamer market. Zowie has been really active on this market, launching everything from gaming desktop PCs to the most common peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, mice and so on. Continue Reading
