*7/26 Update – In stock and the low price below is available once more.*
If you’re into playing games on your laptop or desktop, you probably already know that most sellers charge you a great deal of money for practically everything they slap the “gaming” tag on. If you’re into a particular “big name” brand you’ll also pay a premium when you’re shopping for peripherals. Those are just a few of the reasons we love brands like AOC.
Ending on 6/28 but subject to selling out, Amazon is offering the AOC G2460PF 24″ Free Sync Gaming Monitor for just $209.99. Shipping is free and (outside of a small seller we know little about) this is the lowest point we’ve seen yet for what appears to be a very capable display at a very nice price.
The reviews for the G2460PF are quite good from professionals, and every bit as positive from users according to folks who own one. See the comments on the landing page for reference.
Ever heard of “redrawing” the screen? That’s what these new monitors do. Every second it refreshes 144 times to give you images that don’t fade or blur when the action in your game is frenetic. A hyper-fast 1ms response time means it’s “fast” enough to deal with fast moving graphics as well. “FreeSync” technology from AMD syncs the monitor with the GPU so that the timing is spot on and lag and stuttering are perfectly in tune with another.
This monitor is back-lit with WLED lighting, a brightness of 350 cd/m2, and a very high contrast ratio of Contrast: 80,000,000:1 so your images pop. A total of almost 17 million colors means you’ll see the most colorful images in the precise color in which they are intended to be seen.
