In terms of packaging, gaming monitors are different from their general counterparts. How? Simple, they usually feature some sort of screenshot on 3/4 of the box, loudly bolstering the gaming aspect of the monitor. Opening the box, you have a DisplayPort cable, and an externa power-brick following the standard IEC power-cord. There's also a cable management cable clip of a bright-green cable, which reminds me of NVidia's GeForce green. No-USB cable is included in the package, though the monitor features an USB hub to its right side.
As one might expect, G2460PG is a premium looking monitor. The relatively thin bezel is finished to look like brushed metal, although its built out of hard plastic. The G-Sync logo rests in the upper left corner, while AOC's own monicker sits at the bottom. It features a smaller footprint than the PG278Q, but despite that, the round base still manages to keep the monitor firmly in place. AOC also delivers on its adjustment options, allowing you to swivel the base nearly 360 degrees, tilt the panel about 25 degrees, as well as raise it up or lower it down to the base. Lastly, the monitor also features VESA mount support.
G2460PG is a 144Hz gaming-screen, and at the time of writing, the only connectivity option supporting such a refresh rate is the DisplayPort. This is why AOC's G-Sync enabled display sits alongside ASUS PG278Q, and has only 1xDisplayPort port and nothing else.
As I said back then, while I see why they chose opting only for such a connectivity option, I would've liked to see several other options.
To its right side, there are two USB 2.0 downstream ports. The upper one, colored red, can charge connected devices, even when the monitors is in stand-by. The other can only be used for data transfer.
Control bottoms run along the right-bottom edge of the panel, with small barely noticeable icons. At first, it will be somewhat hard to get the swing-of-it, but after a few minutes, the OSD does feel intuitive enough. Like PG278Q, there are a number of center-reticles you can cycle through by pressing the button with a target indicator above it. You can choose between six different aiming points.
Lastly, you can also turn ULMB on or off, and if you want to, you can also adjust the pulse width.
The faux-metal brushed display features a 1.5cm thick bezel to the left & right, and 2.5cm at the bottom. The 8-bit TN panel is covered with an medium-strength anti-glare coating that doesn't really add graininess to the overall image, while still handling overall light-reflection.
G2460PG uses an 8-Bit TN panel with 16.7 million colors, supporting 1920x1080p resolution, and 144Hz refresh-rates natively. On paper, it features a contrast ratio of 1000.1, and a rated brightness of 350Nits.
