Both AOC and BenQ have just launched new 24-inch 'gaming monitors'. While the AOC monitor is "available today," with full specs and a product page available, the BenQ monitor is revealed in a spec light but management quote heavy press release to whet buyer appetites. Let's have a look anyway, in alphabetical order…

AOC G2460PQU 24-inch 144Hz Gaming Monitor

AOC says this monitor is designed for high performance gaming, which is enhanced by its refresh rate of 144Hz and GtG response time of 1ms. As well as clearer visuals and less lag this monitor should also help reduce user eye fatigue.

The G2460PQU 24-inch 144Hz Gaming Monitor (PDF brochure) offers plenty of connectivity options with "easy access" Display Port, HDMI, DVI-Dual Link, VGA and four USB 2.0 ports all present. The USB hub even includes a fast-charging port for mobile devices that is three times faster than a standard USB port.

Other key specifications:

  • 24-inch display with 16.7M colours
  • 1920×1080 pixels
  • Brightness: 350 cd/m2
  • I-Care automatic brightness adjustment, dynamic contrast
  • Speakers: 2W x2
  • Control: Auto/Source/Exit, Left/Eco, Right/Aspect Ratio/Right, Menu, Power – 16 languages

Buyers get a four-way adjustable stand; the height is adjustable by 130mm, swivel left and right, tilt screen angle and a pivot 90 degrees option. Also the option of VESA mounting is present. The AOC G2460PQU is said to be available now in the US with a price of $399.99.

BenQ RL2460HT for Competitive Gaming on PCs and Consoles

BenQ's RL2460HT was seen at the CES show earlier in the year but the firm has just got around to launching this gaming monitor. However we don't have a product information page or specifications list at the time of writing. The web site only lists other members of the RL range such as the previous model, the RL2450HT.

Highlights of the 24-inch RL2460HT design include a 1ms GtG response time and an HDMI output for streaming/capture purposes. BenQ says its height adjustable stand, offering 110mm of variation, is adjustable with a single finger. Also if you don't like it you can use a VESA compatible mount.

There are various BenQ technologies utilised in this monitor including; Flicker-free Technology, Black eQualizer, Low Blue Light Technology, Console Gaming Monitor, MOBA Gaming Monitor, RTS Gaming Monitor. Also with this monitor a new 'Fighting Mode' has been developed with the aid of Justin Wong of Evil Geniuses. This is a colour calibration setting so you can see your fighter character better: "this extra boost improves gamers' gameplay and their chance to destroy their opponents," says BenQ.

Unfortunately we don't have key information about the refresh rates and other tech specs at this time. The BenQ RL2460HT will be made available worldwide this month. No pricing has been indicated.

I like the look of the AOC but come on USB2 in this day and age……

The BenQ; just doesn't look right to me. :/
This kind of thing is getting old… 24-inch 1080p monitors? Isn't that screen size a little big for that resolution?

Yeah, *blah *blah lots of features *blah. This is why hardware manufacturers don't push the boundaries anymore, 2560x1440/1600 was supposed to be the standard a long time ago, but look, these manufacturers didn't even push that kind of market.

We would have had 23-inch 4k monitors by now, but nooo. Even tablets went past 1080p - Tablets, of all things!? heck, video/photo editors could have used that resolution for more productive purposes. Giving it to tablets only made them more expensive.

Good that Samsung released a sub-$1k 4k monitor, not expecting some high end quality from it, but that's actually a good start considering a breakthrough in the pricing.

To be fair Dell are currently selling a 24" 4K monitor.

I was referring to your comment about how “we would have had 23-inch 4k monitors by now, but nooo”
