. What little blurriness happens during gaming, I take it as "natural" blurriness. Like if you're looking around quickly in real life, your vision blurs. I hate that "Motion Blur" games put into their games these days, as well as when they force you to focus the way the main character sees it. We can do that stuff naturally with our own eyes, thank you very much.
This post is confused.
No picture captured with a camera can really
show what input lag is about, and input lag is NOT the same as ghosting, which causes blurrying. You seem to get the two mixed up.
And what is this about natural blurrying? No... That's a horrible metaphor. First off, that blurring of the vision mostly happens when you move your eyes around, which doesn't happen as often in gaming, instead you are looking at a single point a lot of the time. Secondly, if your eyes naturally blur, why let the monitor add any to it? Third, due to the nature of how the monitors work, the blurrying will not look "natural", as natural blurring of vision would. It will be ghosting, the bad kind of motion blur. It's as far as natural motion blur as I can see.
Also, don't try to discredit a certain con in a product you own just because it doesn't affect you
. The u3011 for example, a great monitor, but it's miles and miles away from perfection (like any monitor out there, nothing is perfect). It has its downsides. Just because those downsides don't affect you particularly doesn't mean that they won't affect anyone else.
At the original poster. It's something a bit more complex than that. What FPS games do you play? What other content do you consume on your PC? Are you bothered by ghosting? (Input lag won't be an issue with any of the mentioned monitors in your post, they all have very low input lag unlike some other models) Do you really want to pay the extra money for the extra bit of color fidelity and the potential for higher color accuracy?
These are, all, very important questions one should answer before going ahead and buying a monitor. Especially when IPS is in question, for a gamer.
In the end, the input lag on any of the three mentioned models in your post isn't any issue, ghosting will only be slightly worse than most TN panels, but if you play a lot of FPS games, a 120hz monitor would also be something to consider. That is not a suggestion that way, just something I'm throwing out as an option as well for you to consider. If you decide to the IPS route, the three mentioned models should all do completely fine for it. The u2412m and ZR24W are also quite similar in terms of performance, but haven't yet read on the new HP model.
