In my option what makes IPS good is only the color accuracy.

The industry likes 16:9 (because it gives a higher diagonal measurement for less actual screen real estate). But LG makes the majority of 24" IPS panels and their 24" IPS panels are all 16:10.

1900x1200 -> HP LA2405wg

Regrettably an edge-lit TN, but then again it's one of the better looking ones I've seen.

As for the catleap suggestion, the front page of this section has tons of useful threads on that topic. Both club threads and general info threads have information you can use. If you're interested in a cheap 2560x1440 27" IPS, you might want to take a look at those.
The default resolution for 24" IPS monitors is 1920x1200. Not 1920x1080.
The industry standard is 16:9 not 16:10 or 4:3.

The OP asked about 24" IPS monitors. Not about the industry standard. He asked what the default resolution for them is, which is 1920x1200, not what the industry standard was.

(Since you referred to resolution first, this paragraph)
1920x1080 is hardly an industry standard in anything but the movie industry (and there it's hardly even 1920x1080, it's letterboxed 1920xSomething depending on which aspect ratio they use) and the TV industry. Pretty much every type of content a computer user usually consumes is not designed for one resolution, it's designed to fit them all. Web sites, they're designed to work on any resolution from 1024x600 netbooks to high end 2560x1600 desktops (and really even much higher than that should do). Games, while they might limit aspect ratio (which as well, is very rare unless the game type just requires a fixed aspect ratio), they don't limit the resolution, meaning that yet again, there is no standard. (the "designed for X" argument is not a valid argument. It does not matter and does not make it a standard. Besides, there are many games that favour 4:3 today as well, the most of them being UE3 games) One resolution will in all practicality work as well as the other. Operating systems? Work on every resolution available. What more is there? Pretty much anything you can name is that is to be done with a computer is designed to scale to every resolution available in modern computers. The only reasonable exception is movies. That's it.

And there's not too much of a standard AR either. The only exceptions are movies (which are mostly not 16:9), TV shows and some other fixed AR content that can't reasonably be scaled to other ARs. In the case of the latter, the developer usually chooses the most common AR of his/her target group. The latter however, is not all that common.

Referring to a standard when one hardly exists, let alone is important, is nothing but distracting.

Thanks everyone for the responses!

After doing a little more research, I'm not quite sure is ips is for me. I'm not a pro gamer by any means, but I know for a fact even the slightest "ghosting" would bother me. Do you guys even noticed a huge difference in color when comparing ips to standard monitors?

Another thought that came into mind was that for about the same price of that dell ips monitor ($300) I could get a 27" monitor. Maybe something like this. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236101) However, the resolution is still at a 1080. Also, I'm not even sure my GPU can handle higher resolutions. It's a GTX 460.

What do you guys think? I'm just an average user who occasionally plays games, browses the web, watches movies, and does homework. No photo or video editing here.

$317 from dream-seller I bought my Crossover from him, great.

1. Everyone is different on the "ghosting" sensitivity. For myself, I don't notice any ghosting on my U2412M when I play MW3 after switching from a TN panel. And I have played the same game on both monitors.

2. Yes, you will notice the color improvements on an IPS. Photography is my hobby. I can tell you that the colors looks better and pictures look sharper (pixel peep) on IPS when compared to my TN. I thought about getting a better DSLR body when I had my TN. But I decided to keep my current camera body after I switched to IPS.

3. If you get a 27" and run on your GTX 460, you should be fine. I play MW3 with a 9800 GTX+ on my U2412M (1920x1200). There is no lag.

Based on what you do on your computer, I think a regular TN will suit your needs better.

Oh, wow. That's really tempting. I'm kind of scared about they dead pixels, but I guess I really can't complain for its price. Experience any ghosting issues?

If there is a fault it's more likely going to be a "stuck" pixel, and keep in mind a pixel on this screen is a needle-tip, not the typical noticable box. I have 1 stuck pixel on my Crossover, I have to look for it to see it. Before, I thought something like that would be a deal breaker for me, it's actually a non-issue. No ghosting or screen tearing here, I play alot of BF3 & Civ 5 w/ my 580 SLI on this.

The monitor still blows me away, I had a pretty nice Asus 24" TN panel before it too.

Wonder if people are going to stop complaining about stuck pixels when we get to 4k ... Get the DPI high enough and nobody will notice lol biggrin.gif
post #20 of 21
So is u2412m really worth it? What about the thing that its only 6bit instead of 8bit is that visible to the naked eye?

Thanks!!!
