120hz monitor LED vs LCD (ASUS OR BenQ) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I just got the LG W2363D and its a great monitor for the money. Has absolutely 0 input lag which is a must and is great quality for a TN panel, check the reviews .

Save some cash over the Benq or Asus and buy another ssd or something

If you find LED bluish you alter the colour settings?! The mere fact that that you make this statement means your imput on monitors is irelevent, not to mention you're using a plasma, ghosting anyone?

If someone has made a genuine side by side comparison and found they prefer one over the over, fair enough, just making a carte blanche statement isn't.

To the op, if your gut instinct says you like LED (ie you've actually seen and been impressed) then go for it, you won't regret it, if you get a regular ccfl LCD you'll be thinking "i wish".
Wow, everything you've said here is just totally wrong lmao.


Why do you think GE is having such a hard time with their new $50 light bulbs? Because they cannot replicate natural, warm color. They always appear blue-ish to those with normal eye balls. Granted they obviously aren't the same type of LEDs used in monitors, but the point remains the same.

Also, GHOSTING ON PLASMAS!? Are you joking? Is this a joke?

It's pretty well known to even laymen that plasmas offer MUCH less ghosting than LCDs. MUCH less. That was one of the reasons why I chose plasma over LCD.

Backfat is right, the rest are pretty facepalm tbh.

LED TVs and LED computer monitors are LCDs. what LED refers to is the backlighting used in both with an LCD panel.

Y'know a

Liquid Crystal Display panel
with
Light Emitting Diodes as backlighting....

See how it makes more sense when you actually write what they actually mean....

The most important part of the computer monitor in terms of it's picture quality and it's response time (that does not matter below 10ms) is the panel. The backlight only matters in terms of it's power usage and due to space, slimness of design. In TVs, you have the added factor of firmware influencing picture quality, more so than in computer monitors.

But hey, gogo gadget marketing!

Agreed.

Please do not post if you have no idea what you're talking about.
New TVs tend to be LED because
1) Consumers love new things
2) They can make LED TVs "Thin and Sexy"
3) They can make LED TV use less power and green is in


That being said, traditional back-lighting provides a better mix of color. That's why virtually all of the high end monitors still use CCFL back-lights. Take for instance the new 2.2k USD NEC beast (pa301w-bk), considered to be the best monitor out there atm, it's not LED.


So yea, buy the one with better reviews. If it's a non LED model.... well I'm not that surprised frankly.

They just told you, LED is still an LCD panel. LED is the type of backlight used. LED backlights are better than CCFL from my understanding because you usually have less backlight bleed and better blacks.
That being said, OLED panels should eventually replace LCD panels once they become cheaper to produce. With OLED technology you don't need a backlight at all.
