Best 120HZ Monitor for Gaming, not 3D? - Page 12

post #111 of 120
I've used the BenQ 2420T and the Asus VG278H - both have nVidia 3D Vision 2. For 3D both are better than the Samsung S27A950D. Specification-wise they are all very similar with low response times, input lag... etc... However, for some reason in 2D the S27A950D just looks better and you can see from this list of the best LCD gaming monitors that I'm not the only one that thinks this way. Here's a decent YouTube video of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1q-_LepAdQ - Anyway, I have this one and can't say enough about it for 2D.

It does look fantastic. But I'm pretty sure it's causing eye pain. FWIW, I'm extremely sensitive to this kind of stuff and honestly not sure if it's the panel, the glossy finish, the LED backlight, or something else. An S-IPS, CCFL backlit Dell 2007WFP gives me no issues.

EDIT: Just switched back to the Dell for a few minutes and the eye pain is no different. Something else is wrong w/ me, lol. Maybe I need a new pillow. biggrin.gif
EDIT2: This panel has completely changed my view on Battlefield 3. I used to despise it, now I really enjoy it. Why? Because instead of going 4 kills / 18 deaths, I'm typically 20 kills / 14 deaths. YMMV, but I have a MUCH easier time spotting, aiming, and keeping track of things vs the Dell.

Posting from an ASUS VG236HE. It's pretty nice. A little backlight bleed on the top and bottom, but nothing I can't live with.

In terms of 120hz gaming performance in 2D....

best glossy 120hz is the Samsung 700D or 750D...
best matted 120hz is the BenQ XL2420T...

there are a few other decent 120hz monitors, mentioned in this thread...but the Samsung and BenQ mentioned above are best in class. I personally like glossy....I have the Samsung 750D and the glossy screen makes the color and image quality look significantly better than my matted monitors.

As far as 3D usage goes (not my area of research)....Samsung isn't as good...however, I know the BenQ XL2420T is suppose to be very good though.

I have the VG236HE and it is awesome. My first 3d monitor, but it is excellent so far.

I just purchased the Asus VG236 yesterday for $350 locally. It came with the N vision 1 glasses which are pretty much secondary to the 120hz feature for me at this point since I don't even have a Nvidia card. Overall the only downside that I have encountered thus far is slight back light bleeding on the top and bottom of the screen which isn't terribly distracting but still noticeable. The quality of the monitor seems about a 9/10 otherwise and I would recommend 120hz to anyone looking for an upgrade to a standard LCD/LED screen.

If you use custom rgb, then you have to deal with a slow response time which, for me, was very noticeable. I can easily see the difference between 2 and 5ms. If you can't, then this may not be an issue for you. Also, the back-light bleed on the two I was using was noticeable and unevenly distributed.
BenQ's color and black levels are noticeably below average/bad, it's panel uniformity is horrible, and it suffers from reverse ghosting. Backlight bleed was very minimal and not noticeable.
Acer GD235HZ should never be recommended as it's a fail monitor. 17ms input lag, meaning a full frame of lag. Also has issues with its overdrive causing over-sharpening. Failure.
Have yet to try the Planar, but it sounds like a pretty good monitor. Reports of bad backlight bleed worries me though. I made a thread requesting information from owners, but no replies frown.gifhttp://www.overclock.net/monitors-displays/1111563-request-planar-sa2311w-owners.html

The important thing here is optimism.

I am so tempted to snag the Sammy 27" but the one big drawback for is the desigh. I do not like that all intergrated monitor and stand so you can not run it in portrait or mount it, plus for the money it should have height adjust ike the BenQ. Plus that style of mounting a big monitor is a poor one at best. Far too much stress in the low right corner which many have said causes problems with bleed in that area and actually getting a wrinkle in the bezel area. I had the BenQ for 2 weeks and sent it back since I could not deal with the colors it presented. I am not a 3D gamer so that matters very little to me. I have a 3D TV for movies anyway and even then I can stand maybe 30min of it until my eyes hurt.

I wish sammy would of gone with a traditional monitor stand for the 27"

I much prefer Samsung S27A950D for gaming. It uses TriDef for 3d gaming which makes this desktop unique. It belongs to my top 120hz monitor review. smile.gif
