AOC’s new V5 series of monitors offer full HD and QHD resolutions and range from 24”/60.4cm (24V5C, 24V5CE) to 27”/68.6cm (27V5C, 27V5CE, Q27V5C) as well as all the way up to 31.5”/80cm Q32V5CE.
The V5 series’ sleek black design features a 3-sided borderless design with a very narrow chin at the bottom bezel, and a super-thin base (12.1mm), including height-adjustable (V5C) or more simpler stand options (V5CE) with tilt functionality. The V5C models offer swivel, tilt, pivot (90°) and 130mm height adjustment for an ergonomic use in either work or entertainment settings.
All models feature a 4-port USB 3.2 hub and a USB-C connector with 65W Power Delivery. Users can connect devices to extend/mirror their display to their monitors with a single USB-C cable. The USB-C connection will also power/charge the device while simultaneously transferring the display signal and offering access to other devices on the built-in USB hub.

The 75Hz refresh rate outshines the 60Hz of regular office models, whilst a snappy 4ms GtG response time, as well as AMD FreeSync support make the V5 series viable for casual after-hour gaming sessions. The built-in speakers (3Wx2, and 5Wx2 for the Q32V5CE) and headphone jack round off the package for any entertainment purpose. Equipped with IPS panels at Full HD (1920×1080) resolution, the compact 24” 24V5C and 24V5CE models can easily fit on even the smallest desk. In the 27” size bracket, AOC also offers three models with IPS panels, the Full HD models 27V5C and 27V5CE, or the Q27V5C with QHD (2560×1440) resolution. Today’s sweet spot in terms of size and resolution, the Q27V5C offers a step up in sharpness and clarity, offering better screen real estate. As the largest model of the series, the Q32V5CE offers a 3-sides frameless, 31.5” VA panel with QHD (2560×1440) resolution.
Covering a large percent of the user’s field of vision with only a small footprint, the Q32V5CE suits users who need a lot of screen real estate in a tight space. The stand of the Q32V5CE offers tilt adjustment of -5/23°, but also supports the VESA mount option like the rest of the models enabling the use of monitor arms. With a punchy 3000:1 contrast ratio thanks to its VA panel, watching movies from streaming services, or having an occasional gaming session on this large display will become a pleasurable pastime for many after the work is done.
