Over­all

Tech Advisor - - GROUP TEST -

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.

Ver­dict

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
