AOC g2460Pqu monitor review and testing

We would like to start monitor testing from model AOC g2460Pqu. AOC products are widely known and spread. First of all due to Company’s policy pointed for reduction in price without loss of product functionality. AOC g2460Pqu monitor is a perfect confirmation of this opinion. Looking at matrix parameters (ultra-fast response time of just one millisecond, frequency - 144 Hz) we can say with certainty that this model is intended for gaming sector. Thus the cost of the device is quite acceptable - about $ 350. This makes AOC g2460Pqu accessible not only for inveterate gamblers but also for ordinary users.

Controls are arranged in butt end of the monitor. They compose of five buttons and their symbols are placed on the front panel. Also there is also a small light-emitting diode that shows device activity. While the computer is under operation the color is green and during idle time it is yellow.

In both cases the brightness is quite moderate and will not distract the user’s attention during watching a movie at nighttime.

A small photo sensor which detects the intensity of external light is on the opposite side. Using sensor characteristic the monitor can automatically adjust the brightness.   

Another additional parameter of AOC g2460Pqu is availability of 2 speakers with total capacity of 4W. It is not suitable for the usage of considerable sound system but for video calls or videoconferencing it is quite proper.

AOC G2460Pqu has 4 USB 2.0.hubs, two are on a back panel and another two are at side. It is very convenient because you can quickly connect different peripherals, flash drives or even your mobile phone. As we can see for one plug red plastic was used.

Display menu

AOC g2460Pqu

Using quick key it is possible to run the volume of speakers, select pre-installed profiles and enable unique i-Care option (brightness control depending on room light intensity). The choice of one or another mode is accompanied with a relevant icon. We found the presence of text information more informative.

You can activate the menu by using standard button “Menu”. In contrast to various monitors here the menu is a tape at the foot of the screen. Among a great number of languages you can select the Russian language. The menu is divided for several inlays, but the main is “Brightness”. Right here you will find an access to recorded profiles and gamma choice as well as the activation of dynamic contrast functions, OverDrive and i-Care.

Of course there is a manual adjustment of three main channels RGB, color temperature, brightness and contrast.

Testing

Profile basic parameters

Producer installed 6 profiles “Standard”, “Text”, “Internet”, “Game”, “Movie” and “Sport”. Tested characteristics are given in the following table:

According to published data nominal brightness is 350 cd/m2. “Standard” and “Sport” profiles excel this value and “Movie” item has approx the same parameters. The lowest result 155cd/m2 got mode “Text”.   

While reading from the monitor reduced brightness is justified since eyesight stress will be lower. Regarding static contrast we obtained excellent results from 1013:1 to 1096:1. According specification this parameter is 1000:1.

Regarding Color temperature of white dot the score is not so good. Among all profiles this dot was higher than reference 6500 К. The worst results were in “Standard” and “Sport” and the best in “Text”.

CIE—diagrams of  «Game», «Movie» and «Sport» profiles

In all six cases, there is an incomplete correspondence of color coverage triangle with sRGB standard. Especially we noted a shift of the green reference point. Excess of color range is observed in the yellow-orange area and the lack is seen in green hues. In quantitative indices it is expressed as follows:
