Best 24" Gaming Monitor

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Currently in the market for a dual monitor setup. I'm really very curious about the 120hz monitors, but there doesn't seem to be one on the market without issues.

I want a display that shows great color, and absolutely no ghosting. I will probably be ordering them in 2 months or so when BF3 is about to release.

Any suggestions?

Well you said you were looking for 120hz as well. I know that BenQ makes a 24in LED 120hz monitor you may want to check out. I havent looked into it myself but I've heard a lot of great things about it and I've heard of a lot of pro gamers using it.

Yea I was considering the BenQ until I heard it had really bad issues with backlight bleeding

Ahh, i see. Thats what im saying I havent really looked into it so I wasn't quite sure. Well Im not big into monitors so the best advice I can give is look for whatever has the best reviews for your needs and dont try and psych yourself out of a product just because of one bad review. I've done that way to much in the past. Good luck!

That is fixed in the current batches. That only was there on the old firmware.

The BenQ XL2410t does not have an issue with backlight bleeding. I'm not sure where people keep hearing this from as I keep seeing people bring it up. I think there was an issue with the early firmware that affected the backlight, but now it's fine. There's just a slight amount of very faint bleed at the bottom. It's not even bright and you don't notice it even when playing super dark games like Bioshock or Amnesia: The Dark Descent (which is probably the darkest game you could possibly play). Out of all the 120hz monitor's, I've tried the Acer GD245, Alienware AW2310, and the BenQ. The BenQ had the least amount of bleed by far. Check out the picture of the backlight in a dark room in this review: http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.p...&id=1291718728 That's how mine looks as well.

Just wait a while longer till more 120Hz reach the market, currently the best performing 120Hz monitor seem to be the Samsung 2233rz which isnt 1080/1200p. Stay away from the LG 2363d pf. The Samsung 950d series look cool, but I doubt they work well for multi monitor gaming though, but the bezels look pretty thin.

Haven't really heard much news on any upcoming 120hz monitors. The new samsung ones are overpriced and nothing special. Supposedly around 12ms of input lag as well. The 2233rz has 12ms of input lag compared to the BenQ's 0-5ms.

12ms input lag. Don't know how the backlight is. Has a glossy screen, so that's pretty much insta-fail.
