What happened to all the 1920*1200 monitors?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Because I'm looking to replace my current single Samsung T240 with three LED-based ones* and I can't freaking find any. They're all "1080p", which is just stupid. But they've gotta be out there, right? Somewhere? Any chance you fine gentlefolk could lend a hand? 27" is a tad too big, I'm only an arm's length from my monitors.

Budget-wise less is more, as always. I won't be Eyefinitiytingning, I just need more screen real estate for when I'm not gaming. IPS would be great, but those cost a pretty penny and ghosting or whatever still seems to be an issue so TN-panels will have to do. I've got no complaints about my current TN-panel in any case. And I've read that 120hz 1200 res is out of the question for now so 60Hz it is I guess.

You know, I was kinda expecting things to have evolved a bit more since I bought my T240 but it just seems to have gotten worse, not better. The screens on display at my local MediaMarkt look like crap, even the IPS ones and they're all 1080 or freaking lower.

Anyway, thanks for any help you can give me.



* (three CCFLs running pretty much 24/7 would generate a bit too much heat and would consume about as much power as my main rig. Might also just add two LED 24"s but I crave uniformity so yeah)

That BenQ is 1080, but I'll look into that Samsung. Thanks.

There aren't many anymore to be honest. The panel producers went for 1080P since the panels are cheaper to mass produce and are fine for most people. There are some on newegg and retailers but 1200P is almost dead which is sad since it has more vertical real estate.

Here are all the ones listed at Newegg but for some reason, a few of them are actually 1080P... : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007617+600012663&QksAutoSuggestion=&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Configurator=&IsNodeId=1&Subcategory=20&description=&hisInDesc=&Ntk=&CFG=&SpeTabStoreType=&AdvancedSearch=1&srchInDesc=

Shy away from the samsung s24a850.. This model is almost guaranteed to have noticeable backlightbleeding. The quality control on this model is terrible.

The benQ linked here is 1920x1080.

For an all around good 1920x1200 monitor, the dell u2412m is hard to beat at it's price point. It's not terribly expensive, yet performs well all around. tongue.gif Ghosting on IPS isn't a problem these days, and even less so if you're comparing to old 60hz TN panels. Regardless, the U2412m is indeed among the faster IPS panels (partly because of it's overdrive features) so you won't have an issue there. I really wouldn't recommend any TN 1920x1200 display over the u2412m for any purpose aside from price.

The Dell UltraSharp U2412m might be up your alley. It's 1920 X 1200, IPS (eIPS, so it's 6-bit), but it's better in many ways than the UltraSharp U2410 (though it's not the proper replacement for it) as it has better contrast and response, and it's not wide gamut either. It's also LED, and to top it off, usually not too expensive. The downside is... AG coating, but I think most IPS panels have it to some degree, but I guess Dells are worse with it. I want to say I've been living with mine, but I've really been cursing it the whole time. I guess there's always a compromise somewhere.

Grah, you beat me to it! I disagree with this though, heavily so. Ghosting is very much a problem with them, and all LCDS really, to me, but if you're used to LCDs anyway, the extra bit of ghosting you may gain from one might not be major, especially since I think (?) eIPS is generally better here than the usual IPS panels since it's 6-bit.

And the dell monitors can be had for cheap if you keep an eye on the Dell Financial Direct Sales website... Last week they had a couple 24" 1200p monitors up there, this week its a 30" 1600p biggrin.gif

Of course I'm comparing IPS to TN there, not CRT. Take the u2412m and take a 1920x1200 TN panel. Is the ghosting on the u2412m a problem in comparison? No. In fact, I don't think you'd care about the difference even if you saw it (since the performance of the 1920x1200 TN panels can vary so much I cannot say for sure what the comparison will be like) The worst ghosters are VA panels. The fastest of them are now up to par with non-overdriven IPS panels.

If you're comparing to the faster 120hz TNs or CRTs, then it's another issue entirely.
