Questions and new monitor advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have read a lot about TN vs. IPS panel monitors recently. From what I've gathered, TN films have shorter response times (not necessarily shorter input lag) and more vivid colors, while IPS monitors have much more accurate colors and wider viewing angles

Is the thing about TN monitors having more "poppy" colors true? Because a lot of people say colors on their IPS monitors look much better... I'm not sure if they mean better as in more accurate, or more vivid / saturated. I've only ever used TN monitors so I can't tell.

Also, why does response time matter for gaming? Input lag should be far more important. It's impossible for me to play FPS games with vsync on because of the input delay - input lag on monitors is essentially the same thing. From what I gather, G2G response time really just effects ghosting, which shouldn't be that big of an issue, right? As long as you have a decently low response time (and a lot of the ones listed by manufacturers are 'fake'), I don't see why it would matter that much.

Anyways - I'm looking for a $200 - $300 monitor.
  • Either IPS or TN
  • Input lag needs to be low (10ms or lower)
  • Somewhat good response time - no visible ghosting
  • $200-$300 range
  • 23" or more
  • 1980*1080 or 1980*1200
  • Prefer LED backlighting

I looked at the U2311H, but it looks like it's going to be replaced by the new U2312HM... and I need a new monitor by next week. Dell's preliminary ship date for the U2312HM is the end of the month, so that doesn't work.

Two monitors that seem to fit pretty well are the LG E2370V-BF, Asus ML239H. I can't find any info on the LG monitor (is it 6ms or 14ms response time), and I hear the Asus has terrible backlight bleeding. Anyone have any experience with these monitors?

Thanks.

From what I've seen in my research, BenQ monitors are great, that one is within your budget, and is 24"
