The AOC G2460PQU is the ultimate gaming monitor with ample connectivity options and a sleek design to meet your competitive gaming needs. The wall-mountable monitor has a black hairline textured design with a sleek red bar at the bottom bezel, and comes with Display Port, HDMI, DVI-Dual Link, VGA, with four USB 2.0 ports.

The USB hub includes a fast-charging port for mobile devices that is three times faster than a standard USB port. Plus the monitor's four-way adjustable stand allows gamers to change the monitor height by 130 mm, swivel left and right, tilt the screen angle, and pivot 90 degrees to landscape or portrait view to maximize the gaming experience. The AOC G2460PQU is now available for $399.99 at national CE retailers. The display is backed by AOC's three-year warranty as well as the EASE exchange program.

The AOC 144 Hz Gaming Monitor's 24-inch screen displays up to 16.7 million colors with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080, perfect for HD games and movies. The monitor's direct-insert, easy-access ports make it simple to connect to USB devices, Blu-ray players, game consoles and more.

Not all Korean Ebay IPS can go to 144hz much less 120 hz for several years. For the number of successful IPS running at 120hz, there are many that have broken down in the last year or two.

This AOC looks nice if priced right. Probably compares well to a Asus VG248QE.

i would take 1440p @ 120hz over 1080 @ 144hz every day of the week dude.

if you follow the thread on oc.net you will see pretty much every one has done 120hz+ for the last 18 months from some sellers.

Perhaps TPU could run a poll over whether to both with 1920x1080 monitor posts any longer.

Yawn.

I would gladly take 1440p @ 120hz over 1080 @ 144hz every day of the week as well, if it was reliable long term. And I'm sure there are plenty of customers that buy overpriced dells for peace of mind or choose monitors from Asus/Aoc/etc. and hapilly game at 1080p.

Btw those same threads on OC.net talk about Korean IPS monitor led driver boards breaking down,blown leds/components/mosfets. Replacement boards costing $30+.

i would love to know the % of those failed to those sold but we all know where that dream ends.

yea man, i know. but even if i have to replace that every 2 years it will still cost me under £300 total for the screen in the next 6 years. which i think is worth the extra image quality over a £200 1080 screen.

by that time i am hoping everybody will be 4k anyway :D

120hz and 144hz is nonsense. Its all BS and marketing.

Ill take better color representation and contrast, and overall better image quality than a faster refresh rate any day of the week.

The answer is a resounding NO. Unless it's 1920x1200 or up, no-one cares.

If you prefer more accurate colors, that is great. It doesn't mean high refresh rate is "all BS and marketing". There is a very noticeable difference between 60 / 120 hz, especially if the user plays FPS games, in both smoothness and blur reduction. (Also significantly reduces tearing in games if vsync is left off)

Can you read the street names in this test?

On my 60 Hz IPS it's impossible. On my 120 Hz with lightboost, easily readable.

This monitor though, is very late to the party. Why would anyone purchase this for $399? Probably uses the exact same panel as the Asus and BenQ ones too.

I am thinking about getting on this 120hz bandwagon here. A person I game with in ns2 got one, and from playing against him he was harder to kill. He said things looked like slow motion compared to before. Ns2 has really fast moving entities so I can imagine it helping. I was thinking 1440p but after he upgraded I don't know anymore.

I love it when people who don't use a 144 monitor say it's just marketing.

And I'll take a faster refresh rate with good colors and contrast any day of the week. I definitely don't miss screen tearing. Always killed the realism for me when I turn in a game and portions of the screen don't line up.

I guess the marketing damaged my eyes.

Problem is it's not IPS/PLS. So it's an overpriced 25x14 monitor.
meh, seems like people don't care, as long as it has that UBER refresh rate, actual image quality is not of concern. After having an IPS though, I cannot go back to a TN.

I guess they also like spending more than they need too on graphics card solutions to take advantage of higher refresh rates, because fps under 120fps on a 120hz screen looks just as bad as having under 60fps on a 60hz screen

Inaccurate statement. The only difference is that movement is smoother (which is admittedly hard to see) and there is no screen tearing until you get above 120 fps.

I don't get where under 60fps looks bad at 60Hz and under 120fps looks bad at 120Hz. In my testing 80 fps looks like 80 fps on both, but doesn't have screen tearing at 120Hz.

Got sources that running under refresh rate looks bad?
