Best Gaming Monitor (27"?) - Page 6

post #51 of 58
my vote goes towards the crossover.

probably one of the best monitors ive ever owned. granted, it does lack some features... but if you are not all that picky, then you really shouldnt notice.

btw, crossover does make a monitor with all the bells and whistles (hdmi, d-sub, dvi-d, etc). crossover 27m or 2720mdp gold.

Lol, not really surprising you cannot appreciate a 2560 x 1440 screen playing a game with such dated graphics! The discussion over response time is interesting but you are all missing the input lag issue in comparing TN with IPS / PLS panels. Every day I am thankful that I took the leap to 1440P instead of getting a 1080P TN panel with zero input lag. It is probably worth stating that the 1 frame per second input lag is perfectly acceptable for FPS gaming (BF3) and for games like WoW or Guild Wars2 my Asus PB278Q is absolutely stunning! Go for the PB278Q if you cannot wait for the release of a mainstream supplier 120hz 1440P panel as I did (but if you want 120hz remember you will not be getting particularly high frames per second using only one GTX670). Alternatively order a Tempest OC 120z 1440P monitor now and live with 16 - 25 FPS!

... this guy. I said you can notice it instantly on cs. I play all games, and ive played on both types on monitors. For the type of person I am and the games I play 120hz gets my vote. Casual and competitive gamers are two different types of people.

This guy? Ok sorry if I hurt your feelings over CS. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect your opinion as a competitive gamer! I also have no problem with competitive gamers using 120hz 1080P panels (makes it easier for me to kill them without them even seeing me on their outmoded lower definition monitors)! I stand by my view that it is hard to see how 1080P will ever produce a clearer and more detailed picture than a higher resolution monitor though as in my opinion Pixels per square inch is where it is at and will be going forward. By 2018 - 20 the UHD standard will be 4000P not 1080P according to the Satellite operators that tend to set the standards now due to the substantially increased bandwidth needed.

If you want terrible color accuracy, terrible black levels with horrible viewing angles, go for a 1080P TN display.

Anyone know the pixel response time and input lag times on the 1440P 120hz Tempest OC?
