1920x1200 IPS backlit OR 1920x1080 120HZ Backlit? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
There are plenty of people who enjoy glossy monitors. In a completely dark environment, I actually prefer glossy monitors because they appear more vibrant. However, I have windows in my room and I like to use my computer during the day! The best way to deal with these subjective things is to order from a website with a good return policy. Amazon is usually awesome about this. A matte 23" 120 Hz monitor that is suppose to be very good is the Planar sa2311w.

If you play a bit of FPS or racing games, 120hz will be very nice indeed, provided you can get the FPS to be 90 or higher.

If you don't really play much, IPS will be nicer, also for the 1920x1200 resolution. Will also be better for movies due to better color fidelity.
It's also nicer to stare at, since the dithering is often less than on a TN.

Also, 120hz and IPS are not backlight technologies LED and CCFL are, to name two.

Well, it depends. Yes, they are available in both, but it's arguable if it's better.

Mostly on IPS panels that is. But even then, it fits great on the things, so there's no really visible downsides to it compared to CCFL there, on the lower end ultrasharps.

LED panels are more power efficient, offer more vibrant colors, and in my opinion look way nicer. Some people prefer the softer look of CCFL backlit panels though.

Sums up your question; 120vsIPS; glossy vs matt :

For 400$, I fear you won't go beyond 23" for either type though.
Imo try a 120hz monitor, the fluidity is just amazing.
