Monitor help. Please respond.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I am at my tethers end. I orignally purchased a hp lp2475w 24 inch ips monitor with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. My first 1 had 3 sub defect pixels, one in the middle of the screen. After 3 replacements from HP which were all defects ,as the guy replacing them told me. I decided to return it to the seller. I received a brand new unit made in March 2011, this has 1 sub defect pixel and suffers from huge trailing.
Literally any object or in game movement produces a trail of blackpixels. This can be as bad as a flag almost doubling. The company I bought the monitor off are not being very good in dealing with a return.

They orignally told me I would have to pay to send it back to them and they will refund me after if they findit faulty. They then hastedly added if we do not find it faulty we will charge you £35 plus delivery costs to return it to you. He then said "Do you understand"? After I said yes he repeated it all and made a point he was typing it out on the computer. They have now agreed to pick it up for free and charge me £20 for delivery, if it is not faulty. I have made a point the HP engineer that came round today confirmed the issue. I feel like the company will say it is not faulty even when it is.

So back to the real issue at hand, I spent £385 on this monitor. After getting a refund, which I will make sure I do, I am not sure what to go for monitor wise.

I know IPS has way better quality than TN and I love IPS, however Finding a 1920 x 1200 IPS seems hard especially as everyone seems to have problems with ghosting/trailing and blur.
I have been looking at the ASUS VG236HE.

Can you guys please make some monitor suggestions? I am particularly interested in the 120hz tn vs ips opinions.

I have a good gaming rig.

I too was looking at 120hz tn vs IPS. The two I was considering were the one in my sig, and the Dell U2410. I saw that IPS panels were still lacking in the gaming department with regards to ghosting and refresh rates, but had great picture quality.

I found that the majority of people who have IPS panels are graphic designers and photographers who really need that level of picture quality. What I was looking for was the best gaming monitor since I don't do graphics design and that sort of thing.

I chose the one in my sig and haven't looked back. It's big, sturdy, and fast. I haven't experienced any ghosting (as far as my eye can see) and am able to turn on vsync in fps without getting blurs.

The only downside to it I've found is how bright it is, and the general things that come with a TN panel (viewing angles, backlight bleed). For me the viewing angles didn't matter since I'm only looking at it heads on, and the backlight bleed is negligible for me.

Oh, and if I ever decide to, I can upgrade to 3d

Here is a link to a review of the monitor I have: Alienware AW2310

That monitor is a bit out of my price range, I am not working atm and my max budget would be £390 as I will be getting a £385 refund.

Does anyone here have a ASUS VG236HE? Also other suggestion would be great.

Stick with asus, I have personally gone through 4 Asus Monitor(nothing wrong just upgrading thats all) and there has never been anything wrong with them, and second why do you need 1920x1200? 1080p should be fine, your spending extra money for nothing

EDIT: oh wow thats my old monitor, loved it to death, then upgraded to x2 24inch monitors

What was your old montor, the Asus VG236H? If so how was its colors? I am also considering the Acer GD245HQ as it has marginally less ghosting.

Right now I play a lot of Bad company 2, Red Faction Guerilla, POP series, and many other fast games, I also play a lot of slow games. How was the ghosting on your old monitor? Also was there any trail of black pixels?

Like Gohan Nightwing I am a fan of the AW2310. Perhaps the 3D Vision club members can assist in your decision. http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/4676...sion-club.html
