    The Starter Monitor

    Before you read this review, I bought this monitor on Best Buy (because it was on sale, but it also on Amazon... I forgot to check) so that's why you don't see 'Verified Purchase' next to my review. I posted my review here so that I can share my insight with you with this monitor. Since the AOC G2260VWQ6 is a gaming monitor. It comes with preset monitor settings that is preselected. Sadly these settings can't be changed in-depth like changing the color contrast. The presets that the monitor comes with is "FPS, Racing, RTS, Gamer 1, Gamer 2, and Gamer 3." To be honest, I didn't use these presets while gaming. Note: In this review, I used a HDMI cable from my GPU to the monitor. Once you plug the monitor in and set it all up. Here is some info about the monitor itself: - On default, AOC put the monitor color settings on "Warm" which means high color contrast, it will mess with your eyes (well for me it did, it was annoying to look at). If you use a preset, you can't change this. - Sadly on this monitor, it's AMD sponsored so that 75 Hz in the title means nothing to a NVIDIA user. With out the AMD hardware, the monitor will stay at 68 Hz (H. Frequency 68 Hz, V. Frequency 60 Hz). - If you switch between modes like "FPS, Racing, RTS, etc" all your customization that you did will not save. You will have to redo everything. There are no save slots to save your own settings (this would have been a neat feature). How does it look when playing games? The games look sharp and response time is fast as stated in the product description. Other than that, the monitor is great. If you over look the AMD sponsorship behind the monitor. This is a great monitor to start off if you are new to PC gaming or even a causal gamer. Things to know: - The box includes monitor, power cord, VGA cable, foot stand, CD and a manual. Tips: - Register the monitor on the AOC website.

    My review is not for this monitor used as a gaming monitor. For what it's worth, I use it hooked up to a docking station for my work laptop so that I can have dual screens. This was the least expensive monitor I could find equipped with DisplayPort. The color is bright and sharp. The screen seems responsive. There are a ton of settings that seem pretty easy to use in order to get the quality you're looking for (different settings for games, movies, text, web browsing, etc). In my experience, this monitor has been great so far.

    It says Freesync supported but doesn't come with the cord required to even use that feature. It also says it has a refresh rate of 75HZ but in reality it only goes to 60HZ on true 1080p and you'd have to down the resolution to get it to 75HZ. Other then that it's still a nice screen, just wish they had told the flat out truth about the monitors capabilities.

    I like the visuals and colors presented. When I press the buttons on my controller, it immediately responds on my monitor. Great start in a long line of 1ms monitors which I will purchase in the coming years.

    I had an AOC in the past and needed to replace it. The new one had a very wobbly support base and the color graphics were faded. I wouldn't recommend this mode.

    The monitor itself is really nice, but mine has a dead pixel on it, so keep that in mind when purchasing.
