IPS or 3d monitor

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Right now i have a 120hz Samsung Sync Master 2233 I was wondering as I hardly ever use my 3d vision glasses would it be better getting a ips monitor as it would give better quality. If so what good ips monitors could you recommend me for 150 - 275 pounds.
help is much appreciated

What do you do on your computer?

If you play a lot of FPS or racing games, running 120hz in 2D mode is very pleasant, would not recommend moving to IPS.

But if you mostly browse and view content that won't achieve 120fps, like videos and pictures, IPS will be better. If it's worth it is another thing. That, we need additional info for.

I was in the EXACT scenario as you a few months ago. Had a 2233rz and wanted to either get a new 120hz or a IPS.

Tried both out the 120hz planar and the alienware, ended up keeping the Dell U2412 IPS displays.

Dont game as much as I used to, but when I do its FPS heavy, like cs 1.6 and bc2, with some MMO tossed in.

Hmm as for the blu ray deal, 120 Hz does have the advantage of being evenly divisible by 24fps, but man dem colors on a properly calibrated IPS. Decisions decisions, don't know what to tell you.

I want a 120Hz 2560x1440 IPS

IPS plain and simply, 3D is a fad its been and gone so many times and it will come back around maybe with more staying power,

3D was around in the early 70's and failed they tried again in the late 70's early 80's and then again in the mid 80's to 90's and failed again and then they tried again in the late 90's oh guess what they failed again,

Lets put it this way get a decent monitor without all the BULL**** and enjoy what you view,

I GUARANTEE you will see another attempt at 3D again in a few more years time,

Meanwhile here's where we are going with TV's

Yes, ghosting is a bit worse on IPS displays than on 120hz displays (which are usually very low on ghosting)

That's one con for IPS. IPS glow is another. But the color fidelity IPS brings is a major pro for a lot of people, which makes a bunch of people choose IPS.
But it's definitely a preference issue. Which one you prefer, only you can choose.
