Also, what I said earlier about the 15ms, that's just under one frame on 60hz. So the amount of input lag is very tiny.

I've been fine with 60Hz for more than a decade smile.gif

That's awful, I'm not getting a dual GTX580 solution to fire up a resolution like that.
I play FPS mostly, I just want something reliable.

I usually prefer glossy but I've been on AG for 2 years. I wouldn't want to risk the glossy mod on the U2711, soaking a $1000 LCD is too risky in my opinion. I've done crazy mods before on more expensive hardware but nothing that involved getting things wet lol.

That's my thinking as well and I didn't mind the AG coating after a while. I kinda wish my laptop had it sometimes

You should go for a used 3007WFP, or a new HP ZR30w. They both have less input lag than the U3011 and U2711. If you care that much about it.

Let me rephrase my concern. I play FPS so I don't want noticeable delay between what I do and what happens on screen. I think that for the price, it's a genuine concern.
I've also looked at the ZR30w, reviews seemed to favor the Dell one though. The reason why I asked on OCN is that I'm reading so much contradictory information on the net that I want to ask here where (even though I've not been very active for the past 2 years) I believe I'd get valuable information.

This is true. I had trouble finding a 3007WFP though and HP ZR30w while good is still expensive but cheaper than the U3011.

The best bang for buck out of them all is the U2711. If you can call it bang for buck

I know exactly what you're looking for, and I still stand by my recommendations. The ZR30w and 3007WFP have less input lag than the U3011 because they don't have a built-in scaler, or even an OSD (the 3007 has a software based one but that's it).

The ZR30w is actually the exact same panel as the U3011, but since there's no OSD you can't force it into sRGB mode (so colors will always look over-saturated except in photoshop).

The 3007WFP (non-HC version) is native sRGB so you don't have that problem.

Reviews favor the U3011 because of the insane amount of control you get with the OSD, sRGB mode, the extra inputs, and the warranty. Oh, and being able to view two inputs simultaneously. So it's really a choice whether you want all the extra features, or less input lag.

My monitor is 60Hz and has a 2 ms response time. It is definitely not good enough for me. I notice the frame skipping at over 60 fps and it is really irritating. I´m looking forward to getting a 120Hz monitor which shouldn´t be too much past my 400$-500$ budget.

just my input.

Thanks a lot Manyak, I'm going to check the 3007WFP. Might be a bit hard to find in like new condition since it's EOL.

I know I saw a whole bunch of them on ebay a few days ago, maybe check there.

Just stay away from the -HC version. It's wide gamut, and like the ZR30w you can't force it into sRGB mode either (at least that's what I heard).

Yeah there's a few on eBay, HC seems more expensive too.
What would be your second pick in current production models?
