Acer Predator Z35P vs AOC Agon AG352UCG review: Titanic G-sync battle

Mainly similarities, with one big (price)difference

Colour quality

We take a look at different aspects of the colour reproduction of the Acer Predator Z35P and the AOC Agon AG352UCG.

First, we take a look at the coverage of the sRGB colour space. This is excellent with both models.

Secondly we look at the colour temperature of white with the default setting. Here we see that the Acer has a slighter warmer value, which can also be seen by looking at the placement of white - it is more towards yellow. With AOC it is more neutral, with a nearly perfect 6569 K. 

We measure the colour- and grayscale value deviation based on the CIE2000 norm, and also include the standard deviation. Simply put this gives an indication of the amount at which the sub-measurements that the average deviations are based on, deviate from the average measurement. Aside from that the averages are now based on a bigger number of sub-measurements. These can be found with the screenshots for every tested product. There you can also find the so-called saturation sweeps, that show to what extent the head- and support colours, meaning RGB and CMY, deviate from the desired values in a continuum. 

Here we see that the AOC is clearly better in terms of setting, with a very good DeltaE-value of 2.29. The standard deviation is also remarkably low, which indicates that the different measurements show very little variation. The result of the Acer is definitely not bad (do not forget: 3 is the border that we handle to be visible to the human eye), but in this price range the manufacturers take colour adjustment very seriously, which means that the competition is very strong. In any case, the AG352UCG does have an sRGB-mode, but in that mode the brightness is set to a blinding 309 kleurafstelling cd/m² and the DeltaE-values are slightly worse instead of slightly better. Only the gamma curve looks better in that mode.

We see very good results with the AG352UCG when it comes to the grayscale deviation, the Z35P is clearly slightly behind here.

 

Gamma 

Remarkably enough the average measured gamma is slightly high for both models, but not as much as that it is annoying. However, the deviation is clearly bigger than with the other comparable models that we tested.
