AOC C24G1?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For the longest time I have been using Dell's Ultrasharp U2412M/U2414H displays. While they have served me well and reliably OC to 75Hz, my lifestyle has changed and I no longer play games in the day, due to work and adult responsibilities.

 

I now play at night in a dimly lit room. And the IPS glow/lackluster contrast when rendering dark scenes really annoys me. Dark shades of color get amalgamated into the black of shadows. So much detail is lost when playing games like Metro, that it is no longer immersive. And when I get into combat, the bright muzzle flashes and rapid screen movement makes screen tearing super obvious. Thus I am considering a high refresh rate 1080p VA display that has adaptive sync and much better contrast ratio, to kill two birds with one stone. With my 1070 I can push high framerates and use Gsync on a Freesync display. After some research it seems the AOC C24G1 is the best compromise out of the few options I have.

 

My biggest worry is to lose the vibrancy of colors when going from IPS to VA. I am quite the brightness whore, and like having my U2414H at 75% brightness. Using MBR (backlight strobing) on the C24G1 is going to cut out brightness. I am also concerned about bad color uniformity which is a known VA characteristic not present in IPS panels. I know its a you-win-some-you-lose-some affair between panel technology. But right now it seems VA is the way to go to satisfy more of my wants.

 

I have considered competing models in this range, including the C24FG70/73 and Optix G24C. The C24G1 appears to have the clear lead with higher Freesync range and better overdrive/MBR characteristics. Where it loses out is in sRGB coverage (vibrancy) although it is true 8-bit and practically accurate 100% sRGB. This info comes from specialist monitor review site/discussion PCMonitors

 

Not going 27" because the lower pixel density is not a net positive for me. Not going 1440p because I want to sit on my chill 1070 to have good fps + eye candy at 1080p. Nvidia opening up to adaptive sync is what brings this into my scope. Being able to use Gsync without spending loads of cash is a huge plus for me. I am in Singapore.

 

Your thoughts?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Lower brightness is result of using backlight strobing. Addressing contrast is the whole point of moving from IPS to VA. I am also looking to use Gsync, and the adaptive sync range on the AOC is 48-144Hz, as opposed to 70-144Hz on the Samsung. The C24FG70/73 also has bad pixel overdrive overshoot which cannot be fixed through display settings. As far as I know the only advantage to the Samsung is better sRGB coverage due to quantum dot technology. If you know of something else going for the Samsung, I'd like to know about it.

VA pixel response is good and allows for 144Hz without high manufacturing costs. However it is still not as fast as TN panels. If you want the absolute sharpest image during lots of rapid movement (as you would in FPS games), 144Hz TN is the way to go.

 

I bought this VA model because of the specific issues I had with my IPS monitor. Its great value though.
