Which type of monitor would best suit my needs?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i been reading about LED vs IPS vs 120hz monitor..and the more i read, the more i get confused...

I currently have a Samsung 23inch LCD HDTV Monitor, and want to upgrade to a 26 or 27 inch, with at least 1920*1080P resolution

reason for upgrade is due to my desire to watch movies / anime from my bed (6 to 10 feet away) from the screen.

I do play some FPS game lik BF3 / Crysis 2 / Metro2033..... and waiting for Diablo 3.

i DO NOT edit videos / images or whatever.

so i've decided to ask here, maybe someone more knowledgeable could point me in the right direction.

what would be most beneficial for someone with my needs?

My current setup listed, if it affects what kind of monitor i could use.
AMD 960T @ 4.0ghz
8gb Patriot 1333 / 9-9-9
128gb Crucial M4
HIS HD 6950 @ 970mhz / 1250mhz

I've played games on 32" LCD (led) tv's (at normal 23"monitor distance), at first its realy huge, but after a while you get used to it.
i would also rec a 32" or similair. and not IPS, i think LED \ LCD (maybe 120Hz if you can get one) is the way to go for you.

For me a 32" inch is just the right size.

All 32 inch tv's I've seen are 1080p. Mine is from Phillips. It's got 3 HDMI ports, AV, VGA, DVI, you name it.....

27" is just the right size, I used a 32" TV before and it requires you to move your head when viewing the upper portion and sides of the screen when sitting 3-4 feet away from the monitor. Again, as has been discussed many times before, 1080p resolution on a very large screen would result in some clarity loss when it comes to text as they would pixelate somewhat. From your OP it seems that a Sammy 27 inch would suit your needs quite well, like the s27a750d or s27a950d (if you fancy watching in 3d), movies would run really smooth. The 950d is quite pricey though, coming in at $600+. The 750d cost around $450, I think.
