Best 120HZ Monitor for Gaming, not 3D? - Page 6

post #51 of 120
I dont know from experience but reading comments on the sites thats sell the benq, some people are reporting many dead pixels, and multiple returns, to get a decent one, so at the very least buy a dead pixel policy from the place u buy it, another person on hardforums, was saying the benq died after 6 months of use. ive been using older benq panel for 3 years now and its fine but this panel was over 600.00 when it was released so might make a difference on the manufacturing quality, hard to say.

That's because at it's core, the BenQ isn't a "bad" monitor per se, but that BenQ's quality control is one of the worst in the entire industry.

I find it interesting that the Planar uses a Samsung panel for its 120hz monitor.

It does. However, it's got Planar guts driving that panel and that's what make it superior.

Well the LG W2363D which I got this week is fantastic in regards to input lag, compared to my other monitor the samsung P2770HD which prad.de measured to have -23ms of input lag.
From some testing I did, I measure the lg to have +20ms less input lag, once you use calibrated settings the colour and picture is quite good, haven't been able to run it @120hz on my 6950 yet but runs fine on my 4870, nvidia cards have no problems running at 120hz
post #56 of 120
The only thing that bothers me about the W2363D is that, like the Acer, there's oversharpening due to its pixel overdrive and there is absolutely no way to turn it off.

So effectively what you are all saying is no one has built a truely flawless "true 120hz" flat screen monitor yet.

What really annoys me is that CRT's still run FPS games better than of these 'gaming monitors' can (used to be a pro CS player). Anyone who says you cant tell the difference between 75hz and 120hz needs their eyes/brain tested as its the world of difference!

My question to Ickz is, as you seem to be the most informed, when is a monitor coming out that will truly rival CRT 120hz performance?

I'm seriously considering getting a CRT back on my desk.

I have the lg and this oversharpening of text is well overrated, there is a sharpness setting from 0-10 I believe, default is 5, I've dropped it back to 3.
I find it totally fine so it obviously isn't something that bothers me.

No there is certainly no truly flawless flat screen monitor, I was going to get the samsung s27a950d mainly because I prefer 1920x1080 on a 27", it's pretty close to flawless from what I've researched, it's only real flaw is input lag, it's like 12-16ms, which is totally acceptable really but I wasn't going to spend so much money and not get a monitor without any input lag, also the glossy screen isn't ideal but they do produce the best pictures, but sun light shining into the room in the daytime would make that quite unbearable for me.
It has like no ghosting in 120hz mode too, and the colour/picture is said to be very good.
I decided to go with the lg simply because it has been tested to have no input lag, picture is terrible out of the box but some guy calibrated it in a review and gave his settings so I just used them and I'm very happy with them. The trailing on the lg isn't as good as the sammy but is better than the BenQ which is pretty much the only other monitor with no input lag or very little input lag, the benq has worse backlight bleeding too but has much better resolution and aspect ratio customization amongst other things.
Then there are other 120hz panels like the asus, acer, alienware and planar that perform better in other aspects but have some input lag, again very little like 12ms range.

Oh and just to add, don't go by digital versus input lag results, it's a joke and they don't do their measurements properly.

Edit: Meant to add, I tested the lg for input lag myself against my old monitor and found the LG to have between 20-25ms less input lag, prad.de which I trust measured my old monitor to have 23ms of input lag so the lg really is fast.

It really sucks that there is no flawless 120hz monitors.
Is there even new 120hz coming?

I have to say, I think the Asus is the "best" when it comes to overall package.
It got "good" enough input lag, has very good 3d, very good colors and a very good price.

I've been using my Samsung s27a950d since Thursday and I've gotta say I love it. The fact that it is glossy hasn't been an issue at all. If you have the $$, I say go for it.
