1920x1200 S-PVA to 1920x1080 TN a downgrade or upgrade? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
the reason its a "unknown" brand over here is because they sell them in korea only as far as i know. apparently they are very popular with gamers over there. 1 year warranty on them so if you have the invoice (which you should when you buy it) you can send it back to korea (yea i know expensive as hell) and get it replaced.


it would get better performance than my single 580 thats for sure. vram will be the killer though for you. I would even need an extra gtx 580 to even run say bf3 on high/ultra. but depends on the games you play. I say go for it. Really cheap right now. I am going to try to pick one up with my paycheck next week.

for $411 (currently) its a steal of a deal!

Really? I've always heard VA has the worst response time. The u2412m lists 8ms response time and tftcentral measured its input lag as <20ms.

U2412m is one of the faster IPS panels and is better than most VA panels. With one or two heavily overdriven exceptions, VA panels are mostly like the slowest IPS panels on the market, or worse. The response time is for the most part a useless figure. Seriously. Response time tells you nothing about how the panel performs.

The input lag on the u2412m was measured to be 9.4ms average on TFTC. But at the time, TFTC still used a testing method which produced higher values than what the actual input lag was. Input lag on the u2412m is not an issue.

The ML249H is bad by VA standards since it has poor black levels even compared to IPS and TN and very slow response times
http://www.prad.de/new/monitore/test/2011/test-asus-ml249h.html

General VA panel characteristics:

+have very deep blacks/high contrast (3x deeper blacks/3x higher contrast than TN and IPS)
+good viewing angles, though not as good as IPS
+Have much lighter anti-glare coating vs IPS and some TN's(most use semi-glossy coating which is the least grainy AG coating)
+medium pixel response times
+No/low input lag
-Unfortunately most recent VA panels lack decent overdrive have slow response times, like the ML249H, BenQ's and C-PVA panels
-Many recent VA panels like ML249H have poor viewing angles compared to the older S-PVA panels

The Samsung S24A650D has decent pixel response and deep blacks.

The Philips 241P4QPYES is even better for gaming than the Samsung but I doubt it is avaliable in North America, no harm googling it though

If I were to get something like the ASUS VW246H would I notice an improvement in gaming performance but a reduction in picture quality? At this point I need to either buy a monitor to act as a TV or use my current monitor as a TV and buy a new gaming monitor.
