Good quality ~23" monitor for gaming?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm looking for a good quality monitor for gaming and general use. I'm thinking around the ~23" size would be good. I don't want a 120Hz monitor, nor do I want a 3D monitor. Nor do I care about the difference between a 2ms refresh rate and 5ms refresh rate, etc.

This is the site I'm looking at them from: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...1212&vk_sort=4

I would appreciate it very much if someone could tell me what the good displays are?

EDIT: I should mention, right now I'm staring into a 27" 2560x1440 glossy IPS LED-backlit display. It's very bright, and I like bright displays.

Thanks, I won't be able to buy from NewEgg though, because I'm in Australia. I looked to see if that monitor was offered by pccasegear but it appears not.

How about the Asus VW246H? It's one of the highest rated monitors on newegg, 24", and is about $199.99 USD (which would be $188.89 AUD), also has 2ms response.

I have a Dell U2311H Monitor, it's IPS.

Purchased for $222 AUD from dell.com.au

The price states $299, but you can online chat with a rep and make them price match Harris Technology's one for $222 (give them the link to it in the chat). If they want to charge you for shipping that HT charges, tell them Dell usually ships monitors for free when purchasing online. Also then mention you'll buy it now if its $222 total and free delivery.

Done. That's what I and many others have successfully done.

Dell U2311H

$299 from Dell AU

http://search.ap.dell.com/results.as...at=all&x=0&y=0

or better value but slightly worse:

Asus ML239H $219

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=17786

Pros and cons vs. each other:

Dell U2311H

* More accurate colours when both are calibrated
* Better input lag
* Height adjustable
* Slightly better motion lag

Asus ML239H

* Looks better design wise
* Slightly less motion artifacting
* Slimmer

I wouldn't go for that one. I had it for a bit and I thought the colors were way off, and too cool. I also thought it was terrible for gaming; an 8ms response time is very tangible when you're used to 5ms or 2ms. I really went around the block trying LED and IPS monitors before I decided regular, thick-paneled LCD monitors were the best . Even the $250+ Asus I'm using right now doesn't hold a candle to my cheapo Acer 23" as far as color accuracy goes.

You're too used to oversaturated, overly bright colours tbh. You need to compare some high-res photos or say movies with high detail e.g. Inception at Blu-ray quality or even 1080P H.264 quality.

Placebo if both are 60Hz monitors. Science laughs at you.

Eh, I looked it up in the store and in another which is near me, neither have that model. Thanks though.

Ah, sweet. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the tip!

Also this might be a deal breaker: estimated shipping time for the U2311H via Dell is 7-10 days.

Here's the ML239H review from TFTCentral, which does compare it to the U2311H
