He did say gaming. Are IPS good gaming monitors? I've seen a couple IPS monitors and they are all 8ms.

Monitor specs are almost all made up. There are no real standards so you can't really judge between monitors from them. That said, IPs monitors generally have slightly higher response times but the difference is minimal. On my Dell U2410 I don't have any issues with response and game on it regularly. But the advantages of the color and viewing angles is very worth it.

IMO, this is bad advice.

Manufacturer specs mean little (or nothing) and stats like "2ms response time" mean next to nothing. They're not dependable when choosing a screen.

LED is bad for color clarity, and has no real benefit besides lower power consumption.

And he said he read about 120hz and decided it wouldn't help him THAT much, considering cost, I don't blame him. 120hz TN panels are often (in the US at least) quite a bit more than IPS panels in the same size/res.

This is good advice, OTOH.

My IPS is just fine as a gaming monitor, and it IS 8ms. Most people that own one agree. For gaming input lag is more important anyway.

I guess we have to figure out the input lag on our own?

Look for reviews at sites like TFTCentral. They have charts with some of the more popular TN and IPS panels on 'em. For example: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2311h.htm In this review we see the U2311h actually has less input lag than the 120hz Samsung SM2233Rz.

yes coz one is running at 60hz and a later review they say the samsung is still the champion so confused. And then the problems with the Dell after the people went and buy it. Just look on the newer reviews on that site and the problems they experience in some tests how many times the Dell name pops up. Then on same site click Dell panel lottery enjoy

Looking into buying the U2311H directly from Dell right now for €277,09. Is this the best sub-€300 gaming/everything else monitor out there right now?

Also, the Dell website makes no mention of an HDMI connector on the screen, although there's a photograph of the connectors and I do seem to recognize an HDMI connector down there. Simple question; is there or is there not an HDMI connector?

I had an opportunity to have an LG IPS236V moved to the store to be displayed and I have to say, the screen in it is pretty damn nice. How well do these IPS panels perform for gaming? Any ghosting issues to worry about or anything?
