No, avoid LG branded IPS since they all have slow response times and ghosting. The IPS236V is also just as slow.

Spend a little bit more on the Dell U2312hm when it goes back on sale (check Dell's site regularly or call them and you might be able to get a deal)

Futureshop sells the IPS235V which is the newest model, it is a bit faster than the IPS236V/231P but still not as good as the DEll

No. This monitor does not have overdrive (Response time compensation) SOURCE so there is significantly more ghosting and you can ignore the rated response time completely.

Response Time Compensation
Quote:
Overdrive / Response Time Compensation (RTC) – this technology is based on applying an over-voltage to the liquid crystals to motivate them into their orientation faster. This process forces them to a full white (inactive) to black (active) transition first. The crystals can then drop back down to the required intermediate grey level. This is helpful as the rise time of a liquid crystal was always the slowest part (response time = Tr + Tf). This technology does not help improve the ISO black > white transition much since that already received the maximum voltage anyway, but transitions from grey > grey are significantly reduced. The improvements in grey transitions however are helpful in producing a faster panel overall as these changes have always been slower colour changes in TFT panels and it is important that the response time is low across the whole range of transitions (0 – 255). Screens featuring RTC will normally show an improved responsiveness in practice and reduced motion blur and trailing. Manufacturers will usually quote a "grey to grey" (G2G) response time figure on screens using this technology since they are normally the fastest transitions available. Look out for "G2G" quoted in the spec sheets.

I made the mistake of buying this monitor because it was so damn cheap. Not a good monitor for gaming at all.

But it does have amazing color and the anti glare coating is very light.

I also own the Dell U2312HM and it is also not a very good monitor REVIEW

- The Anti-glare coating is very thick on this monitor and Dell monitors in particular
- There are issues with Yellow tint on the right hand side of the monitor on white backgrounds SOURCE very common problem with Dell U2410 also
- The monitor itself has a green/yellow hue and you need to agressively change the RGB settings to get white balence which affects contrast (I had two U2312HM at one time and both had over saturation of yellow/green)
Quote:
Colour accuracy was fairly good at default factory settings with an average DeltaE (dE) of 2.2, ranging up to a maximum of 4.9. The screen felt a little yellow-ish to the naked eye and overly bright at these default settings. Some minor OSD adjustments to the brightness can hopefully help improve the default set up for casual users who don't have access to a hardware calibration device. To be fair though this kind of out of the box set up should be fine for most casual users anyway, and they can just adjust the brightness control to suit their working environment.

No sorry frown.gif

The BenQ XL2420T is what i would get if i could do this over again. The fact that it is a TN panel does not worry me as much as the problems i have with my two IPS monitors. A shame really. You will LOVE 120hz gaming by the way.

It's $399.99 CND after rebate...
