This a 24in 1920x1080 LED TN display, capable of a 75Hz refresh rate. It provides an extra 15Hz over the standard 60Hz, which means it’s better at dealing with screen tearing and offers slightly improved motion tracking capabilities. While we found that Overdrive enhanced the response time, it added ghosting when playing fast-paced games. Indeed, we achieved the best gaming experience with this feature switched off, though the real-world response time felt slower than the quoted 1ms.
The monitor achieved 100 percent of sRGB’s colour space and 78 percent of AdobeRGB’s colour space when measured using the Spyder5Elite calibration system. The AOC’s colour accuracy was also decent with an average Delta E of 1.15, which is good considering it’s a TN display. It couldn’t compete with the fantastic colours of the BenQ RL2460HT, but still performed extremely well. We didn’t notice any inconsistency with the backlight LED, where the bleed was extremely minimal.
When checked for brightness, the Spyder measured 268.9cd/m2, which is more than enough for most people. Its contrast was a little disappointing with a tested 630:1 ratio, meaning you won’t get a good reproduction of deep black or bright white colours.
Finally, we found FreeSync to be a valuable addition. This is the monitor’s ability to sync its refresh rate with an AMD graphics card and prevents screen tearing from occurring. It should be noted that the AOC is compatible with nVidia cards, though you won’t be able to use the FreeSync feature.
The AOC G2460VQ6 is a great budget gaming monitor that is mainly aimed at those with AMD cards. We were also impressed by the image quality at this price, and its styling sets it apart from other budget monitors.
Despite being made out of plastic, the frame and base are finished with a brushed aluminium look, which gives it a classy look
