do dell ultra sharps make good gaming monitors? - Page 3

post #21 of 95
I use the U2211 and love it to death. Input lag is not noticeable unless my sensitivity is at 100% and try 360 no scoping.

The quality is night and day to anything else. Plus it does have a AG treatment. Some say its harsh, but after a while it just becomes part of the picture and you see through it. It works wonders though. Direct high power light on the panel and no bleed or glare.

Dell ultrasharp monitors arent good for gaming, of course they can do it, but they are photo editing monitors. Most people who swear otherwise that own them are probably trying to stand up for their investment in a photo editing monitor...

Yeah, your gonna run at a higher resolution. It will look sharper.
But for the same price, you could get a 120hz monitor. The difference is astonishing, if your rig can handle it - I could never go back to gaming at 60hz. For fast paced games, I got an unprecedented level of awareness, responsiveness, and smoothness out of my 120 hz monitor when I switched.

You got two choices -

You can get a monitor designed for photo editing, like the dell ultrasharp.

Or you can get a monitor designed for gaming, like the vg278h (Is this out yet?)

398

27 inches, matte screen, 120hz, with new "superbright" technology. What I would do for this monitor...

These are not the only two choices.

If you can handle input lag, that is.

Did I come across as meaning two choices in particular monitors? I meant the types - with the dvi connection (I do not know about displayport though) the bandwidth can only handle either 1080p at 120hz or 1600p at 60 hz - but you already know this being the display section editor - and pretty much anything 120hz is designed for gaming, and all of the ones that arent 120hz that I am aware of, for example the u2711h or u3011h are photo editing monitors

I suppose I was trying to say he can choose between a photo editing monitor or a gaming monitor, and I just recommended the vg278h for gaming ones... smile.gif

i don't think you'll be using your old monitor once you get the U2711, bigger screen makes it for so much better and more immersive experience, the only downside is you need a top GPU (or 2) to run games at 60+ fps.

i've switched from a 22" 4:3 Viewsonic monitor to a dell 2209WA and i've not noticed any ghosting/input lag, 1 year later i got the U2711 and well tbh i can't imagine using 22" monitor again...

but of course your mileage may vary...

I think the first poster quoted poster is an idiot. Lets just make that clear first.

I also disagree with Jacob - to an extent.

I moreso think the UltraSharp was designed for consumer level enthusiasts who don't want TN panels. It competes with the LP2475w, which I think is in the same boat. Prad gives the LP2475w a far higher review.

From my research, both mentioned monitors can have tinting problems as well.

My U2410 has yellow whites. I have had it since March and never noticed it until I purchased an NEC and placed them side by side. The NEC was pure white while the Dell was warm and yellow - I was not happy. I would pick up two LP2475w's myself if I hadn't already got the U2410. Actually that's a lie, lol.

To answer your question, No. The Dell U2410 does not make a good gaming monitor. I would consider it satisfactory at best. It does however make good colors, if you're lucky enough not to get a tinted batch. All (good) IPSs generate beautiful colors at a price. That's their goal - not gaming. That's why you never see any IPS gaming monitors - except for the Eizo Foris - and I'm still wondering why.

The moral of my story: If you want a gaming monitor, get a TN. If you want pretty colors, get an IPS. If you want the best gaming IPS, then get ready to overlook the loads of fanboys and do tons of research, because they're practically all the same.

Check out Prad:

The U2410 got an overall satisfactory review (which is quite sad) and a satisfactory rating for gaming.
THe LP2475w got an overall very good review (Prad's highest) and a satisfactory rating for gaming. Clear victor here I would say but also has scattered tinting issues.
Eizo CG243W got an overall very good review and a good rating for gaming. It also costs $1900 and was not built for gamers.

I'm still deciding what monitor(s) to get myself. I'm sick of my yellow U2410 but I don't want to spend $4000 on two Eizo's. I love my 16:10 aspect ratio of the IPS so 16:9 is really out of the question, so that eliminates 99.9% of TN panels. I was heavily considering the LP2475w but there's no point in me purchasing two of those when I can replace my U2410 for free and get another for $400. What an interesting situation I am in as well.

I think the world should just make 16:10 the standard. Then they should wipe TN off the face of the planet so the world can focus research on lowering refresh rates of IPS displays. Then LG and Samsung won't monopolize the panel market and perhaps a good company can once again implement the A-TW polarizer! Zomg I'm getting so far ahead of myself!

I have a Dell U2312HM and it is great for gaming. The colors is amazing and is fast enough to play BF3 and any other FPS you want. Check tftcentral reviews here, and check the responsiveness and imput lag. This monitor has great imput lag, so there is not need to worry on that.
