LG E2370V - the ultimate IPS gaming monitor?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it the best choice for a gaming monitor (im a SC2 semi-pro)?

I even considered 120hz TN, but on the other hand I spend a lot of time working on the computer, watching movies/tv series as well as playing other games maxed out - so i barely have stable 60 fps in most new games.

I know it is quite hard to buy in my country (Poland) and slightly more expensive than Dell U2311H (my 2nd choice) but im in no hurry.

Seems that LG is way quicker. What about input lag? I can hardly find any reviews, but here are some translated:

I find it just a bit funny that you mention your main reason for the upgrade is to play SC2 and then in this review on amazon this guy specifically mentions SC2


I would go for it.

Even though you will see TN panels with 2ms GtG response times. for an IPS in this price range I would say that 14ms is reasonable. IIRC you really only need to be under 16ms and still be fine.

It's just a huge marketing gimmick that these cheapo TN panels run 8ms and below.

They won't start making the better quality panels in abundance (Meaning affordable) until people stop buying the TNs.

I had just purchased this monitor from newegg and just not set up an exchange for another of the same model. The monitor emits a very high pitched (though not very loud) tone, even at 100% brightness. You can actually hear the tone pulsing in sync with the blinking LED light when it is in power saver due to no signal.
I'm hoping this is a defect, and not that they just used really really cheep capacitors because the monitor itself is really nice.

Even off it makes that noise (but lower). I installed one of these for someone else a few weeks back and don't remember this, but it wasn't in a quiet room so I may have missed it.

1000/response time = actuall refresh rate and headroom

I don't know how realistic this is (i.e., not just a 'marketing ploy'), but: "THRU MODE
Attention gamers: Thru Mode is here, this feature enhances your game experience by optimizing the reaction time of the video content. Activate it on to play games, deactivate it for everything else."

Bump, give me something!
It's considered as best gaming monitor and yet no one has it? It's more expensive than Dell so I want to make sure it's worth it!

This might help http://www.pchardwarehelp.com/guides/s-ips-lcd-list.php Huge list of all IPS based monitors. Here is some great info about IPS
Quote:
S-IPS/H-IPS (In Plane Switching) panels are generally considered the best overall LCD technology for image quality, color accuracy and viewing angles, but this comes at a price. They are well suited for graphics design and other applications which require accurate and consistent color reproduction. S-IPS panels offer the best viewing angles of any current LCD technology, with wide viewing angles up to 178 degress. The response time of S-IPS is adequate, ranging from 6ms to 16ms with current panels. This is only slightly slower than TN panels. However, gamers should take this into consideration. Fast paced games may suffer from motion blur or ghosting with S-IPS panels that have a response time higher than 8ms. IPS LCD's are a suitable stopgap display technology until OLED monitors are commercially viable. S-IPS panels can be identified buy a slight purple hue on blacks when viewed from a wide angle. There are currently few manufacturers using S-IPS panels in comparison to the other panels types making choices limited and they often carry a premium price tag. H-IPS is a newer variation of S-IPS with a different pixel structure that improves contrast ratios and lowers pixel pitch to provide better picture quality.
