Any recommendations for a good 1920x1200 monitor?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get a new monitor, and I'm interested in getting something with a 1920x1200 res. The majority of monitors I've seen with this res don't seem to be that great though. This seems to be the best one I've found so far, but I'm wondering if anyone could recommend something better.

The new Dell seems to be quite good, the price is nice. I haven't seen an official review yet, but I'd love to check one out. Dell U2412M.

Yeah, I had been looking at that one too. The 8ms response has me a little bit worried though when it comes to gaming, which is what I would be doing mostly. I was reading that the Dell UltraSharp U2410 might be slightly better, but I've also heard it suffers from something called "dithering" and a slight pinkish tint, along with the 6ms response, which leaves me kind of uninterested in this one as well.

I've never owned an IPS display though, so I'm not sure how acceptable the response times of an IPS monitor are when it comes to gaming.

Check out the Asus series on newegg, well under 200$. I have one, the 24". only con... is 60hz, but if youre not worried about that, 2 ms is nice.

(almost) ALL TN (low quality) panels, including the one you linked in the original post, has dithering. So you are used to it. The U2412m also has dithering AFAIK, but it's mostly not visible. At least not anywhere near the visibility of TN dithering.

Only earlier revisions of the U2410 have dithering.

Response times are an advertising giimmic. They are measured in gray to gray transitions, which makes the whole point quite null. Real world usage of IPS panels shows that ghosting (the product of response times) is quite low these days.

All in all, the U2410 would be a good choice for gaming, but it has 15ms of input lag in game mode (=one frame on 60hz). That is roughly the average TN input lag but it might bother some picky people. The U2412m will most likely have less, since it's more gamer oriented, such as the U2311h and u2211h, which both have less input lag. I'd suggest waiting for the U2412m, since it seems a good choice for the gamer. And once you go for a high quality panel like that, the normal stuff is going to look very washed out and wrong.

+1 to the above post!

IPS is the way to go with colour reproduction, as well as white's actually being white, and not yellow (read: TN).

Thanks for the suggestions and info, it's much appreciated. I'm definitely strongly considering getting a Dell IPS display now.

Total noob question. What is IPS? And wats the big deal about it?

IPS Panel Technology
IPS (In Plane Switching) was introduced to try and improve on some of the drawbacks of TN Film. It was developed by Hitachi and was dubbed “super TFT”. They improved on viewing angles up to about 170H. This was done by controlling liquid crystal alignment slightly differently, but unfortunately, can affect response rate of the pixels. As such early models were not as good for gaming as TN panels. IPS panels were later developed into Super-IPS (S-IPS) panels by their main manufacturer now, LG.Display. Production costs have been lowered, which makes IPS Panels more widely used in the market. S-IPS offer perhaps the most accurate color reproduction available in the TFT panel market, and the widest viewing angles as well. They are also free of the off-center contrast shift which is evident on VA matrices, and as such are commonly the choice of graphics and color professional displays. Response times were traditionally behind those of TN Film and VA panel variants, but modern IPS panels using response time compensation (RTC) including the new generation of Horizontal IPS (H-IPS), Enhanced S-IPS (sometimes called E-IPS), Advanced Super IPS (AS-IPS), and "Economy" IPS (called e-IPS) panels can offer responsiveness to rival both.
