You still get 120hz even in 2D.

You should probably wait until it goes on sale again. It's a nice monitor but i don't know if it's worth $450 now that's it's basically 2 years old, especially considering there's plenty of other 120hz monitors on the market that are under $350.

LED makes the display have worse colors, not better.

Power consumption difference saves you 50 cents per month AT MOST in a normal area.

  3. Do you want a balance between the two (but you will still have screen tearing)?
  1. If you chose the first one, go with the Alienware 120hz monitor.
  2. If you chose the second one, go with Dell U2410 (or another high-end IPS panel)
  3. If you chose the third one go with the Dell U2311H.

The third option is really such a nice monitor overall i wouldn't recommend the U2410 unless you're doing graphic work too.

Personally though, I'd choose the 120hz monitor over the U2311H just because i really dislike screen tearing, input lag, and i love the smoothness of running games at 120fps on a 120hz monitor (and i care more about quality game play than i do having perfect color reproduction in movies).

Hope that helps you make a decision cool.gif

The difference between U2410 and U2311h is not that big. The u2311h is not a compromise in that way. Though being one of the fastest and cheapest IPS monitors for gaming out there, its' still not that far ahead the U2410 in terms of ghosting and input lag. u2410 input lag = 15ms in gaming mode, ghosting only a bit worse. U2311h = 10ms of input lag.

Also, the U2311h has a 857:1 contrast ratio when calibrated and the U2410 only has 448:1 calibrated, 742:1 uncalibrated. This means the U2311h has a higher contrast, not the U2410.

Why would you not recommend the U2410? yes, I would not either, mostly because of the price. I'd much rather recommend the HP ZR24W or the dell U2412m as cheaper alternatives for gaming if you want IPS.


Though, this doesn't matter, since the OP has decided to already get the 120hz, which is a fine choice of a monitor too. smile.gif

u2412m have much highter contrast ratio, good color, and little less ag coating then u2410, but have the gamut cover and factory calibration worst. the responsive times seem good.
in 22 august will be the PRAD.DE review.
the price is around 320-350$ ( 399 in dell site ).

Cheaper alternative to the dells: LG IPS 236 and 226. They have [apparently] lower response time, use the same panel, have very good color in my experience and the LED [for both of mine] doesn't..erm...suck. smile.gif

The 226 can be had for 190 on newegg, and the 236 i found at my local fry's for 220.

If you're way more interested in gaming than pretty colors, the alienware is probably a better bet though.
