post #11 of 26
i use 2560 x 1440 and i will never go back to 1080p just imagine 1600

make sure you arent capping you bandwith (hdmi)you will have to live with some compromise somewhere!

Another question:

What Hz has the HP ZR30w?

Can it do 120Hz for 3D? (Or hitting 120fps v-sync on)

Ive had both

1x U3011 2560x1600

3x U2311H 5760x1080


Most of the time i enjoyed the single large res monitor better, it ran ALOT better in terms of performance then my eyefinity setup and the bezels are not there. There were also the games that did not work on eyefinity at all, such as SC2.

That said when eyefinity did work it was cool, but i like to run my games max and if you want to do that with eyefinity you need a nasty gpu setup

Anyway biggrin.gif
A bit offtopic but what is so special about those IPS monitors? I came across a lot of IPS lately smile.gif
I got this from WIKIPEDIA:
In-Plane Switching (IPS)
In-Plane Switching was developed by Hitachi Ltd. in 1996 to improve on the poor viewing angle and the poor color reproduction of TN panels at that time.[6] Its name comes from the main difference from TN panels, that the crystal molecules move parallel to the panel plane instead of perpendicular to it. This change reduces the amount of light scattering in the matrix, which gives IPS its characteristic wide viewing angles and good color reproduction.[7]
Initial iterations of IPS technology were plagued by slow response time and a low contrast ratio but later evolutions have made marked improvements to these shortcomings. Because of its wide viewing angle and accurate color reproduction (with almost no off-angle color shift), IPS is widely employed in high-end monitors aimed at professional graphic artists, although with the recent fall in price it has been seen in the mainstream market as well.
The vieuwing angle I'm not interested in, but is the colour stuff SO MUCH BETTER? I mean, for a gamer like me, not for digital photo/video editing, it does not matter that much I guess? And since it has a slower response time, it surely isn't good for gamers smile.gif but I see it's 7ms, so it's not THAT bad (at all)

The biggest thing is the increase in resolution and yes the color is MUCH BETTER!!! Everything is just sharper at 2560x1600 "almost" no need for AA

edit: for gamers you need to worry more about input lag. response time represents ghosting of images. Input lag is how long it takes for the monitor to register a mouse movement

The benefits of the 2560x1600 resolution monitors out there at the moment isn't 120Hz, 3D, 2ms etc. It's amazing quality colour and a great viewing experience, coupled with the large 30" panel size the screen real estate that having that high a resolution in a screen that size allows you to multitask easily. For non creative work in an office having multiple monitors is superior to me, but I'm not that intense or productive at home and having the ability to watch news, read news, sort emails and trade all on one screen is more than enough and a very pleasurable experience.

Now if your sole concern is gaming, then you'd have to make sure you can afford the GPU muscle to crank the settings otherwise you'll have to dial them down. Also you'll have to decide if it would suit your gaming style to have a panel that large, try measuring it out and sit down in front of where it'd be. If you think you'd like it but not sure if it's worth it then try a 27" 1440p res screen as they're quite a step down in price and very nice. As far as eyefinity goes, I personally wouldn't recommend it for gaming and don't like it but that is just subjective opinion.

This was the decision I just had to make between hi-res IPS or fast 120Hz 1080p. I decided that for gaming and general computing I would find 120Hz more useful than the better color reproduction and higher resolution of the high-end IPS displays. I'll try out my S27A950D for a while and if I'm not that impressed with 120Hz I may go with Samsung's new PLS 27" display (S27A850D).

hm how i would love something like 3840x1080 for picture by picture -.-

Gaming on a 30" IPS panel @ 2560x1600 is the bees knees. For me personally, I found pixel density to be king, even over the current standard 120hz offerings @ 1920x1080. I just can't go back down in rez after picking up this LGW3000H a couple years ago. 60hz looks great as long as vsync is enabled.

I tried a three monitor eyefinity setup briefly and while it was a cool sight across the room it really did nothing for me. I didnt like the bezels, nor did I find it very useful in fps's. The 30" set at the right distance was more immersive to me, not to mention the slew of driver and perfomance issues you will be forced to face unless both the game & driver makers both spend the time to get the bugs out. Lately with the abysmal quality from both camps I would just avoid it for now. Just my opinion.

That new Samsung S27A850D is the first 120z LED LCD offering above 1080P I beleive, sporting a 2560 x 1440 rez. There are mixed reviews on it from what I've read but at least we know we can expect other manufacturers to follow.
