I won't buy anything but IPS. Guess I'll keep waiting.

So finally finished calibrating the G2460G and the grayscale and primaries/secondaries are all within 1 DeltaE so this TN has impeccable color accuracy. Gamma is also fairly good with perfect 2.2 tracking from 20% white to 80% white with 10% dipping to 2.1 and 90% a little high at 2.25. I noticed at default setting without a color profile applied the gamma curve follows close to BT.1886, so i will try to generate a profile for that and see how it does.

Now the biggest issue im seeing is a contrast ratio of only 500:1. I thought maybe something was wrong with my colormunki display, but i took a HCFR reading of this 2795QHD i have and it gave me 1237:1 contrast which is right around where i recall i was when i first got the monitor and ran it through its paces.

I find the 500:1 figure a bit puzzling simply because tomshardware did a review of the monitor and they had a consistent 700:1 contrast ratio across all brightness ranges. Now 700:1 isn't much better than 500:1 but its still a pretty big difference.

My OSD is using user settings with RGB of 48/50/49 with the defaults being 50/50/50 for this particular screen, not sure if the freesync variant is using the same OSD. Gamma is set to 2 as that is the most optimal setting. Not sure how toms got Red 57, Green 60, Blue 61, unless they decided to go up instead of down when trying to hit a color temperature of 6500k. It very well could be the case that their increased RGB values gave them a gain of 200 contrast. This is my first monitor where all the RGB sliders start at 50. I'm accustomed to seeing them maxed at 100 so naturally to calibrate you'd adjust those values down a bit.

EDIT: Sure enough going up from 50 gave me the boost in contrast so now i'm seeing 714:1. with the new settings. Still a lackluster value, when there are other TNs such as the one found on the LG 24GM77 that provide far better results with contrast ratios matching the 1000:1 spec easily. Hell even my VG248QE had around 850-900:1 albeit it didnt have the color accuracy this AOC does, and it didnt have G-sync, plus it used PWM.

Also if a Mod sees this i think this would be better off if it were moved to the monitors and displays section.

Agreed since it is no longer news but rather a thread for owners of this monitor or even owners of other AOC monitors at this price point.

Also, I'm glad you were able to calibrate it to your liking. It took me about a day to get mine set up with the colors and I must say that the only difference I can notice between running at 60hz and 144hz is that 144hz looks brighter but for the most part colors are the same.

Is there any g2460pf + g2770pf owners club?
post #145 of 155
Hi guys, I want buy the G2460PF but I some questions, I have read that freesync on this monitor work only for maximum 120Hz,how can I use until 144Hz?
post #146 of 155
My unit works as advertised. Only issue with it
is he colour.... It isn't very good
post #147 of 155
It goes up to 144Hz without and reaches 160Hz with freesync.
Now for the color reproduction, i can assure you that out of the box was much better compared to benq 2411z and 2720t.
I personally have set it to: Contrast 47 Brightness 10 shadow 50 overdrive standard game mode off and i am pleased with the outcome.

Primaries and Secondaries at their 100% saturation does not mean colors are accurate. Its the 0-75% saturation, skin tones, and other colors levels that are important. If you use HCFR, then there's an option to run Color Checker.

However, these days color accuracy lost its meaning for games as long as it does cover the sRGB / Rec. 709 colorspace because we can make ReShade 3DLUT's and correct ALL the inaccuracies WITHIN the colorspace!

Hi. Does anyone have the drivers for the G2770PF (Not the 24") to enable 30-144hz? I am thinking of buying this monitor but want to make sure it does 30-144Hz before I do. Thanks.
