The Monitor

We received this KD25F series monitor merely a week or two ago. You can spot them in retail at 519 USD and in the EMEA at 499 Euros. 


The series offers a 25" Full HD panel, well actually a 24.5” AU Optronics TN (Twisted Nematic) panel, and is among the first of its kind to feature a refresh rate of 240 Hz. At the rear, you will notice a recognizable logo in which the necessary RGB lighting has been incorporated, and on top of a handle on which you can easily lift the screen, which I find to be remarkably handy.


As you can see our monitor is rotated towards other media and was packaged pretty horribly. The basics are there though, screen cover and big styrofoam blocks for protection. 


A 1ms grey to grey response time is specified, although some marketing material indicates 0.5ms. It likely that this model uses the newer 240Hz TN panel with 0.5ms specified grey to grey response time vs. the original 1ms specified for the panel used in the likes of the AOC AG251FG. You probably should not put too much weight into specified response times. Built with ABS plastic, the characteristic identity that Aorus design means a trendy foot with RGB lit logo design. There is a fairly large and thick plastic bezel at the bottom side. The monitor includes HDMI 2.0 inputs and a DisplayPort 1.4 connector as well as a USB 3.0 hub. 


This is the foot, flipped around. Extremely handy and it brings very minimalistic looks to the monitor. The monitor can be adjusted to different positions, that is a refined monitor arm that can easily move the screen without moving the foot. The screen is easy to position in the ideal position. It has a few secrets hidden at the bottom side of the bezel.
