AOC G2460Pqu small review - 144 Hz to ground

    TV manufacturers accustomed us to the race update frequencies - 100, 200, 400 Hz - who is more ?! On the monitor market, things are a little calmer, but nevertheless for gamers recommend a refresh rate of 144 Hz. But ... Remember this ad: “If you can’t see the difference - why pay more?”. The AOC monitor was in my hands. An example of which, of course, with an amateurish look, I’ll try to understand - do I need it? Under the cut I will understand.

    I'll start with my passport:

    According to the numbers, as usual, everything is beautiful and nothing is clear. the sticker on the back gives out a Dutchman of Chinese descent. Since I am the owner of the ASUS PA238Q I will naturally compare the sensations from the AOC G2460Pqu with it. What the manufacturer offers besides a passport: The device comes in a box of standard monitor dimensions, no frills: brown cardboard without glossy printing.

    In the box: monitor, power cable, DVI cable, VGA cable, USB cable (for connecting the built-in USB hub) and audio cable (for connecting the built-in acoustics). Stop, where's the HDMI and Display Port? AOC does not consider it necessary to add these cables to the package - sadly, it seems not a cheap device, moreover, focused on the gamer. In the meantime, gamers ran to the store for cables digging further. Still in the box there was a disk with drivers and software and a coupon for Shoot Mania - a toy quite fresh and valuable, but still I would prefer cables =). What is proposed to put on the table for a gamer? The strict design of the plastic case hints that gamers are no longer considered ravens who throw themselves at any piece of red glossy plastic.

    The frame around the screen has a texture similar to brushed metal - a good solution, fingerprints will not be visible, and the dust will sit less.

    The control buttons are hidden on the bottom to the right - although the icons are very difficult to distinguish, but as a rule the setting happens once, and then it becomes not so significant.

    On the right side of the monitor there are two USB connectors - one of them, red, is designed to charge gadgets. The current strength is not indicated, but all available smartphones happily took charge and no one complained about the lack of current. By the way, the red port will work for charging, even if the USB cable is not connected to the computer.

    The remaining ports are located behind the monitor and look down, so when using VESA there will be no inconvenience to connect. The monitor is equipped with four ports - DVI, VGA, HDMI, DP - in addition there are 2 more USB ports, an audio input and output. A sufficient set for a variety of users.

    There is a cable holder on the monitor foot so that the bundle of wires has at least some harmony. There are several important details, for example, a sticker with information about the energy consumption of the monitor: according to these data, such a monitor in St. Petersburg will cost the owner about 2000 rubles a year if will be constantly on. Well done AOC.

    And a gentle theoretical digression: the higher the refresh rate of the picture, the less gaps between frames, so my eyes should have a smooth picture of the world, not only in games, but also when playing any other content. Everything is clear with the exterior, gamers came running from the store with the Display Port cable, it's time to play. Where do you need a high refresh rate? Right, in shooters. The most recent Titanfall has one interesting feature - FPS is equal to the screen refresh rate - accordingly, the bonus from the frequency of 144 Hz became noticeable when changing the monitor. In the old CounterStrike: GO, the picture did not change for my taste. Watch Dogs became softer or something, the picture stopped twitching, and so did Dota2: it also became a little nicer to play here, jerks disappeared when moving around the map. After the games, there’s time to work:they ask for a device from 11,000 rubles =) Subjectively, I would not change my ASUS to this miracle of technology, but this is only because games are not my main profile. But when buying from scratch, it makes sense to look at the AOC G2460Pqu. It has very few shortcomings, judging by testing serious publications with a color gamut, everything is also in order, except that you can complain about the price, but you have to pay for all the good.
