Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have been looking at a new LED Monitor.

I came across this one & wondered if it truely was as good as all that.

IPS, make we want it, for the price.

8ms responce time, makes me wonder.... is it good enough.

 

I am mostly going to play games with it, BF3... hopefully. 8)

$250 would be my budget, but this 24" IPS may prompt me to spend a few extra $$.

All alternatives appreciated.

 

Thoughts please.

If it is just for games? maybe go the faster non IPS screens... (cant think of the name of them TF ? )

 

They are cheaper alot faster draw times and higher refresh rates.

 

This is the same problem i had deciding. in the end i wanted good image quality (better color, view angle and resoloution) over higher speed.

 

8ms is not exactly slow though. from memory a few years ago when they first came out it was a bit of a issue....and i think from memory 12ms and above was notiable diffrence. prehaps others can share some more light on this.

Oh nice, I was looking at these because they are 16:10 1200p, and IPS. For $280? I may have to get one, and then a second one later down the track. I can't really justify two at once. But having two of these will probably make my 1200p TN panel look like crap!

Still pulling my hair out... 8(

 

The deal is a good one for IPS.... but is 8ms going to make the games suffer?

Yes, mainly games.

 

I have also spotted this one:

 

ASUS ML239H 23in IPS Widescreen LED Monitor

PC CASE GEAR $218

Resolution - 1920x1080

1080P

Response time 5ms.

 

IPS & 5ms.

May be my choice..... maybe.

Patience I have.

i used to play games on a 12ms 19inch no problem, i doubt that youd really notice the difference between 5ms and 8ms, plenty of other people dont seem to care

I have a DellU2410, my first IPS and I wont be going back in a hurry.

This model is 6ms and has been great for games, I cant see 2ms making that much difference.

Colours, viewing angle both great. Mine is not led back lit either.

This is my third dell monitor and I have always been happy.

Personally, for the price I think you will be well chuffed.

Was going to post thesame question actually. I was looking at the U2412M, but I am now looking at the Ultrasharp U2410 at the moment and i'm almost ready to pull the trigger! I have a ASUS VW246H at the moment and want to move up to something of better quality and it will also leave the 2nd monitor as a second screen.

You could try this for $215

23” Dell UltraSharp U2312HM

E-value Code: U14U2312HMAU

Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM

 

You wont be disappointed smakme7757 especially if you do colour critical work.

Got the U2410 for $487 inc GST with 3 year warrenty wish I got two for that price.

Pays to wait for a deal sometimes.
