Recommend me a monitor?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Acer HN274H which is a 27" 120hz monitor, don't get me wrong I love the 120hz but the monitor is a bit big. My mom sits rather far away from her monitor and it's only 20" I'm going to give her this one if I can find a suitable replacement, I'd like the resolution to be 1080p or higher, 24" I think would be the sweet spot, and looking for a 16:10 monitor if possible never owned one, but would like too, for the extra viewing space. I'd like a true 8 bit ips which means no false dithering. I want the best bang for buck monitor, I'm willing to spend about $300 on a monitor but willing to go higher if the features warrant it. Thank you! smile.gif

You want a true 8-bit IPS for 300$ or less? At least 24''?

That's about as close as I can see it.

Willing to go higher if feature warrant it, like if the monitor can actually reach 70hz+ at that resolution I'd pay more.

you will not find a 24", 16:10, 8-bit IPS monitor with a refresh rate of above 60hz. closest you'll get would be the yamakasi catleap q270 from 120hz.net whenever they announce the availability of it. even then i'm sure the price will be more than $400 for those monitors since they are specifically producing PCBs for 120hz for a specific customer base online.

remove your requirement for 70hz+ monitors and you'll get your 24", 16:10, 8-bit IPS monitor for around $300.

ASUS just released this (Newegg's the first to list it) and it seems to be positioned as a direct competitor with the Dell U2412M.

Get the new ASUS. Responsiveness of the Dell seems particularly lacking.

I would go for anything with 1920x1200; I currently have the Philips Brilliance 1920x1200 24" Unfortunately, they discontinued this model. But if you can find it off of craigslist, ebay, amazon. I guarantee you that you will get what you paid for~
