1920x1200 monitor recommendations

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Howdy folks. I am looking into getting a monitor for a future build. I was looking at a 1920x1200 resolution for gaming, most likely a 24" screen. I'd like to stay in the $400 price range if possible. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

For around $400, I think the best monitor youre going to find is the Dell 2410 or the 2412m, which is the cheaper variant with slightly better response time. The 2410 is going to have slightly better colors though. I'm sure people will tell you around here that IPS displays arent good for gaming because of the slower response time, but I own a 2412m and I dont notice lag. The extra screen real estate on a 1200p monitor is really nice too, especially for games. Here's a review that compares both screens: TFTCentral u2412m review

Awesome! Ill be sure to check for those. Do you think it would be wiser to go for a 1080p monitor instead?
post #4 of 19
I dont think youre going to see a noticeable advantage on a 1080p monitor unless you play quake or something really fast pace and your monitor is 120hz as well. The two I listed are IPS monitors and you are going to see a difference in color between a normal lcd and the ips panels. Playing BF3 on a 1200p panel is awfully nice, just saying smile.gif

Hi there,

Im also looking for a good (read: excelent) 24" monitor with that res.
Ive been searching the net and reading old posts here for a couple of days now and still have doubts.

If someone can please enlight me a bit and show me some options with pros and cons I would appreciate it so much.

Btw, after my reasearch I "ended up" with two posibilities, are they good enough?

Dell Ultrasharp U2412M

HP ZR2440w

Thanks!

EDIT==> main purpose for the new monitor will be gaming BF3+D3 biggrin.gif

I had a 2001FP before the U2410 I have now and all I can say is that gaming on it is fantastic.

For a short period I also had a T240 (2ms TN panel) from Samsung and, while the response time was blistering, the colors on the IPS are much better. If you can get a U2410 on sale here (http://www.dfsdirectsales.com/dell/ctl641/cp57131/cl2/monitors), you can get a great deal.

The 2412M is also an excellent panel, though is has a slightly smaller color space, I think, than the 2410. Though, it's also cheaper. I don't think most people (myself) would notice the enhanced color unless comparing a 6-bit IPS to an 8-bit IPS side by side.

The u2412m is possibly the best choice on that budget. Has fantastic performance for what it is. And the stated other possibilities, the ZR2440w and the U2410, it doesn't have any noticeable input lag (it's very low on input lag in terms of being LCD). Both the ZR2440w and U2410 have noticeable input lag - stay away for FPS gaming which you mentioned these monitors will be for.

Slightly smaller color space? True, it is standard gamut instead of wide gamut like the U2410. But that doesn't matter unless you use programs that utilize wide gamut color space, or if you want to run wide gamut on sRGB content and oversaturate reds and greens. (Which is undesirable)
