DLP, IPS, or 120Hz LCD?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new monitor for gaming and stuck between a few choices.

A projector would be awesome, but given the budget, I'm limited to quite a few cheap or clearance item batches. Let alone, I'm going to be in quite a small room while at I'm gone for university.

These are the 3 choices I have picked out:

For a projector, I'm thinking of the BenQ MS500. Although the resolution isn't nice, I can guarentee that my FPS is going to be signficant enough for a few years.

If a IPS, I'm thinking of grabbing the ASUS PA Series PA238Q. The colour accuracy is going to awesome compared to the other choices, but it I would love to get back into "more then 60hz" monitors.

Or I could grab the ViewSonic VX2268WM. After a calibration, the colours are going to be decent, but no where near the IPS above. At least I'd have 120hz though.

Anyways, cheers on input.

I would vouch for IPS as well, stretch the budget for a U2410 or u2412 from Dell, HPZR24W is nice too. personal opinion though I would not trade IPS for 120hz. Dont know a single thing when it comes to projectors.

on another forum it was talked about being the same design as the U2311H from dell. the youtube videos showed it's features and how it performed in game test (no ghosting/no input lag).

The ASUS IPS is suppose to be bit better then the dell U2311H. Offering 10-bit, etc. But pretty much the same thing by what I've read.

I can tell the difference between 60 and 85 hz. If there is an IPS in this budget that offers 75 or 85 Hz, that would be awesome. The IPS is reading 55-75 Hz, but I think that is not 75hz on its native resolution.

Hmm, I'm not a fan of the base. After the ASUS one I'm currently using, I'm not going with a round bottom again. Thanks for the suggestion tho, I'll think about it.

I have the LG IPS236V (two of them). They're about ~$250 a pop and well worth it imo. They look great side by side, the colors are phenomenal, LED is always a plus, and ghosting is minimal. There *is* backlight bleed (usually in one corner) but it is hardly noticeable unless you're looking for it.

Definitely recommended by me. Great combination of IPS, size, and affordability.

There aren't any IPS monitors that can properly do above 60hz. Only... well. Ones that only accept 60hz input and interpolate it to 120hz, and hacks that can make current models go higher than factory presets. The U2311h can do 75hz with custom drivers, but that results in a slower pixel response = more ghosting.

You simply can't have it all.



Don't get the projector. Keep in mind projectors life spans are much lower than LCDs, and unless you have the money to upkeep them, considering one for "a few years" might not be worth it.
