And as I said, it depends. Some TN are worse, some better. Usually the most popular TNs here on OCN are a bit better. But there's plenty of TNs I've seen that are also worse.

EDIT: And on another look at that, that's not a huge difference either.

It's still a new technology, give em time to work out the kinks. SED definitely would've been nice, but I think we need to move forward with fixed pixel displays.

Without question the Dell U2311H UltraSharp.

Color reproduction is HUGE in games, I never appreciated it until I got my current computer, but I'll never go back. The U2311H will make you a screen snob, and you'll be soooo happy it did.

Not sure what you mean by fixed pixel display. If you mean only one true native, then SED was that. Though I still think it's nice to have every resolution be native.

It proves that IPS has same response time theory wrong. Theres a huge difference between them. Might as well get a cheap 60hz monitor then for gaming

The difference is there but not huge.

Look, you compared one of the fastest TN panels on the consumer market to an IPS panel in response to my "as good as the average TN in terms of ghosting" argument.

What don't you get about average? Compare it to a random LG panel and I'll say the LG will lose.

No I compared price vs price and the use of it.

Edit: most IPS panels are manufactured by LG

Yet my argument was not that. I said the U2311h does just as good at ghosting as a random TN panel, not one of the fastest ones out there.

That is to say, you have nothing to fear by purchasing the U2311h as a gaming monitor. The slow IPS thing is gone with this one. Does quite well for gaming.

Even if not? Depends on what kind of FPS you are getting, but I ran 60hz LCDs without vsync for ages. Tearing was minimal
