Product Comparison: AOC G2460PG vs ASUS ROG Swift PG248Q
- 144hz and G-Sync are a revelation. 144hz in particular, there's no going back.
- Getting full 144 fps on all games that support it, the gsync works perfectly, with the added bonus that I can turn off vsync in the actual games to free up resources, height adjustment is a nice feature, and grear colour!
- Well worth it for G-Sync alone. 144hz is fantastic too, with a clear difference.
- Overall this monitor is fantastic. G-sync is amazing, the screen is bright and pretty colourful.
- So happy I spent the money for it! I am really impressed with just how great the quality is from the actual production and quality of the resolution and graphics.
- The monitor makes modern games look incredible. It's hard to put into words how beautiful everything looks, and thanks to the 144hz refresh rate and G-SYNC, screen tearing is a non-issue.
- Variable refresh rate. Your paying a premium when buying this monitor just to have the GSYNC module but oh boy is it worth it. No tears/stutters improves the experience ten fold.
- 120-144-165 Hz works like a charm with the G-Sync, but with some games it can be finicky,
- Overall the monitor provides great colour and vibrant contrast with amazing details for gaming at 1440p resolution at 60fps, or near almost, from my trusted GTX970 and i7-6700 PC.
- Image quality is very weak by default, but you can tweak it for yourself. Not recommended for basic users.
ASUS ROG Swift PG248Q
- Brightness of the screen - OMG this is insane, the screen is on 50 % brightness and I find it strong. It is stronger than my older screen's 100%. I
- As it is a TN panel, the colours aren't going to be as good as an IPS, but that only really becomes a problem at odd viewing angles and not really noticeable from day to day use.
- Great performance, but it indeed has washed out colours, just like every other TN panel.
- Color rendition is a bit poor compared to IPS monitors, but it's far from annoying (you can't really notice unless you do a side by side comparison).
- Like others have said, G-sync is excellent and works flawlessly but the quality of the TN panel is just meh. Leaves a lot to be desired unfortunately.
- As this is an IPS panel, you can see the screen clearly from any angle without any discolouration.
- Generally good colours if tweaked (Red 97, Green 92, Blue 100), viewing angles are acceptable for a TN.
- The quality of picture is good because it's an IPS monitor. The size is good as well.
- The colors are superb the g sync feature makes a noticeable difference when playing games on high, especially when your graphics card isn't quite good enough.
- IPS panel for excellent color reproduction and viewing angles.
- G-SYNC is great for gaming. The image is so smooth! And the ULMB mode (similar to LightBoost), which can be used outside games, also makes a big difference.
- The monitor looks very sturdy, without being excessively heavy. The frames are well made.
- The stand looks very flexible and well made, the screen can rotate and move almost all directions and it is great.
- Also it has a fully adjustable stand (Height, Swivel and Tilt) and the USB 3.0 hub is a nice addition.
- The biggest problem is that color balance changes a bit between ULMB on / off, and you can't specify a separate color balance for each (you have only brightness and contrast separate settings).
- Adjustable stand is awful, and the monitor was broken when it arrived.
- The buttons on the side of the monitor are easy to use. Activating the turbo mode to increase the refresh rate to 165hz is easy, but absolutely not necessary.
- Build quality is excellent. I would chooses asus over acer even thought he panel is normally identical the materials and build quality are on point
- Built in FPS counter, timer and crosshair for gaming purposes,
- Backlight bleed and dead pixels are an issue. I got lucky, and only had the one dead pixel, and minimal backlight bleed.
- Adjusting the Colour Temp, for personal preference, is great unless you then apply the Blue Light filter in the evening as this has the effect of wiping your preferred Colour Temp.
- Lack of ability to change the ROG logo colour/ring on stand.
- Not having built in speakers (I get it, its a monitor but I sure do miss that feature)
- Ease and Features- there is literally nothing to do. Windows 8 found the G-sync and installed the driver. I was worried about the display port and cable as I have always used HDMI.
- It came with a non-uk power cable, which has a sturdy adaptor fixed in place - a small niggle but it hasn't impacted me at all. Excellent monitor overall.
- The cable management bracket is green and very handy. Literally plug and play.
- This display since i brought 2 of them same time, it only run on display ports and usb data cable for usb on the side and bottom of the screen.
- The monitor comes with a DisplayPort cable, HDMI cable, Euro kettle lead, UK kettle lead, and a cable to allow you to use the USB ports of the monitor.
- The build quality is excellent. The screen comes put together in the box and all you need to do is connect cables.
- The monitor does come with both a display port cable and hdmi, however I would recommend using your own as both of these cables are rather short.
- Installed your windows with HDMI cable. Install all drivers with HDMI cable then replace the HDMI cable with DP cable when you're on desktop.
