Best IPS Monitor for Casual Gaming/Movies - Page 3

post #21 of 41
I would say the u2311h, I went through a long debate about this when I bought mine too. Honestly, there is no ghosting what so ever. Even in games/benches that have a long, sweeping view of something, still no ghosting.

very good colors, although the contrast ratio wasn't amazing right out of the box. with manual adjustments I was able to get it to around 750:1 which is plenty for me.

Also put my gamma from 2.2 to 2.0, otherwise everything looked blue.

Great panel though!
LG IPS236v is a worse monitor, lower contrast and responsive time too slow.
Read the PRAD.de accurate review about it, 500:1 and slower than IPS231P.
The 22" model is much better.

I hear all this buzz about IPS monitors but never have seen real proof that they are worth the price! Please some one, SHOW, not tell, me that they are really worth the money for gaming and internet use. I still cant see these as anything more then "work" monitors. But I want to.

Dell U2311H Owner here. Its great for gaming, the colours compared to a TN Panel are more vivid and full and the picture overall looks great. I consider my self a hardcore gamer and have no problems with playing even Driving games like Dirt and FPS games like BF:BC2 and COD. Ghosting is neither worse nor better than any other 60hz screen ive seen, and input lag to me is unnoticeable at 10ms. For movies its good, again it has great colours, but as with any other 60hz screen, action movies with lots of movement can get blurry because they are shot at an uneven fps, 24 I think. Overall I am extremely pleased with it, worth all the money. cannot comment on the other monitors though

I was just speaking from my experience with the monitor. For surfing the net and playing games, it has worked great and the color looks good to me. All the other stuff like response time, ghosting, and etc. is something I probably wouldn't be able to notice unless it was really god awful. Honestly though my first choice was the Dell U2311H. Being the impatient person I am, the lg was in stock at Best Buy so I jumped on it.

I cant... photos dont do it justice. (I just tried to take a couple) My camera shows the TN panel as looking better.. due to a less aggressive glare coating. I personally like the glare coating, since I have a bright dorm room.. and you cannot see it like the camera does. You will probably just have to listen to reviews. (Or see if anyone took photos with a camera that looks accurate- not mine sadly)

Eizo FS2331, Dell U2311H, Dell U2711 or Apple Cinema Display 27".

All great displays for movies and casual gaming.

My dad has a 27" apple cinema display, but honestly I think i am leaning towards three 22-24" inches in surround, i would prefer three 24s but if i find a great price on a 22 or 23 i will jump on it, must have a native resolution of 1920x1080 though, i will not settle for anything less.
