Help Lt.JD pick a new monitor

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I'm in the market for a new monitor. My perfect monitor would be 24 inches and have a 1920x1200 resolution screen. My budget is around $300. I'm willing to downgrade to 1920x1080. An IPS panel is preferred. I plan on using this monitor for gaming mostly.

Well, your "perfect" monitor would be a U2410, but that's way out of your budget of $300. U2311H and this come to mind.

Honestly I thought the same thing when I bought my 30" but it was SOOOOO worth it. Single best purchase I have ever made in my over 10 years of building computers.

Think about it like this, what is the one part of your computer you are using 100% almost all the time you are on your computer? Its the monitor. The monitor if your window into the digital world.

The quality of an IPS panel is amazing. I had a T260, 25.5", 1920x1200 LCD. I thought it looked great. Then I put a used Dell 2007fp next to it, a 20" IPS panel, and it made the T260 look like crap.

Spend the extra money now, you'll have the monitor for years and everything will look fantastic.

OR, you could look for used 2407wfp. You can find them fairly cheap used and they use PVA panels that are a good deal better than TN, I've had hands on with them and they do look great. 24" and 1920x1200.

Mygaffer do you know/think that the U2311H will be a large downgrade from the U2410. Man I see what your saying a good IPS panel will last me at least five years. Which is way longer than any of the parts I have now.

The U2311H is 1920x1080, while the U2410 is 1920x1200. Additionally, the U2410 has a significantly higher color count than the U2311H counterpart. If you'd be willing to spend the money, definitely go with the U2410.
