120hz -> 60hz IPS, would you be able to do it? - Page 3

That's right, but from time to time you can still see great deals on them, even in peak condition. And you can usually get them cheaper if they have some faults, some of which are fixable with some amount of calibration

Let's also not forget the downsides of such a CRT monitor

1. size - its footprint will easily consume a far greater portion of desk space than any LCD
2. weight - better not have a pansy desk and better not plan on moving the monitor around a whole lot
3. maintenance - if you want to keep the monitor in peak performance

Not much of any downsides.

My BenQ LCD has 0 input lag

Yup

2304x1440 @ 22" viewable is a tiny dot pitch, I'd call it great if you're using it for something that needs that (actually works exceptionally well for games) but not something I'd call a strength for browsing, that will likely only add to eyestrain.

Eyestrain? Not at all. I run my F520 at 2048x1536. It's clear as day.., and from what I understand, it's roughly the same pixel density. It looks great. This actually makes me despise LCD monitors because of their low pixel density, which makes text look way too large. Don't forget you can run it on 1920x1200 and 1680x1050 too without any of the distortion LCD monitors get on unnative resolutions

I wouldn't dismiss them so quickly, except its so easy to do so when they can't be bought new anywhere, at least not here in the USA, and also when all the used options are slim pickings if not completely dried up.

You can find these everywhere in the USA. Getting ahold of them here in finland is very very very difficult. But when that happens, I can usually score them for around 50€ Look around on auction sites.

Is what really that bad? I have no complaints about gaming performance whatsoever.

I'd choose IPS, even if I had to get a 16:9 aspect ratio. The new 24" version of the UltraSharp is looking sweet if it's $300.

Just gone from a TN "so called 2ms response" to this shiny U2410 - I'm not using "Game mode" and the colours and image quality are impeccable, and I'm not noticing any lag whatsoever

I swore I'd never go 16:10, but the extra space for workflow is epic

Naah. We're not discussing response times here, but the refresh rate.

120hz >>> 60hz, but for IPS, is it worth the downgrade? IMO yes, but it depends on the person.

Aspect ratios do not change workflow. Resolutions do. I'm running a 2048x1536 4:3, and that is great for workflow.

Multiple monitors also help.

Im pretty sure im buying a decent colorimeter regardless of my monitor purchase that can handle LED lighting, but im so unbelievable lost with no where locally to test anything out. It also sucks that there are no IPS displays in the 23.6" size to match up as a secondary display with a 120hz panel as my primary for gaming.

Anyone have any Pics of the u2410 in gaming mode? Is it really that bad ?
I'm in the exact situation as you are lmao

I hear w/ the gamut and what the gaming mode does, all of the colors get saturated and gain a reddish tint. Would u mind taking a pic to compare game mode to normal mode ?

If you have the chance maybe a FPS (COD/BC2, etc) and a RTS like SC2 or something with less motion.

Im at such a standstill haha.

I don't use the game mode b/c I heard the same thing. It's not necessary, though. I don't sense and input lag and my scores certainly haven't gone down at all

I use the factory-set sRGB mode, because it's been color corrected by Dell.
