Best 1080P+ IPS monitor under $400

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
NCIX decided after a month to tell me that the PA238Q I purchased was discontinued by Asus, so I'm looking for a good 1080p+ IPS monitor with low input lag, and never buying anything from NCIX again.

I want an IPS monitor that has low input lag and good color reproduction, as well as a good viewing angle. Also, I value pixel density over screen size. Display port would be valued as well.

Ideally, I would like to be able to run 3 1080p screens side by side, or a single 2560x1440 screen eventually; I'm willing to save some money for a 1440p screen if it is worth it over the eventual triple 1080p.

I'd like suggestions of good $300 or $400 screens as well as anything cheaper, if it is still decent.

The monitors that I have currently been looking at are the
Dell U2312HM
Dell U2412M
Asus PB278Q
Dell U2711

I've heard some good things about the 2412, so it's looking like the front runner right now

Go with a Korean monitor:

It's 27" and 2560x1440 resolution and the quality is on par if not better than Dell and Asus monitors thumb.gif

NEVER AGAIN!

This is what the one I bought, then returned, looked like/

Also, you're not supposed to post eBay links on this forum.

no... I made one back in early October after I returned my Catleap, asking about 120Hz monitors. I've decided against anything with a TN panel, so I need some new advice.

The 23" Dell can be found relatively cheap, and it's well under your budget, and it has a relatively low response time.

I've heard that they are inferior to the 2412, though. It's only $70 more; is it worth it?

Edit: I also remembered the Samsung S24A850DW; how does that compare to the 2412m?

After reviewing my options, I have decided that the input lag on the 1440p screens is too great to use, so I will be looking at the 1080p and 1200p screens, unless there is any 1440p screen I am forgetting.

The ones I am looking at are:
U2412M (reasonably low input lag)
U2312HM (low input lag)
S24A850D (no idea)

Are there any other monitors I should consider?
Does the 2412 have better color than the 2312?
Samsung PLS vs Dell IPS, which wins?

Also, any information on the Samsung's input lag would be appreciated.
post #9 of 20
The 850D does not have any input lag and it can scale 16:9 console resolutions properly, the U2412 can't. The U2412>U2312 but you need to turn off the overdrive in the service menu (TFT Central's Review has instructions), otherwise it has noticeable ghosting. Also the Dells use a very grainy matte coating, so if you don't like reflections but want colours to look crisp and clear, get the Samsung since it uses semi-glossy coating, which is the lightest of all matte coatings.

http://www.overclockers.ru/lab/48426_4/Luch_sveta_v_temnom_carstve._Obzor_i_testirovanie_monitora_Samsung_S24A850DW.html

Low-mid range IPS panels commonly vary (big contrast and gamma differences between units), so while the Samsung does cost more, you are more likely to get one with good black levels and colours vs. the Dells, though Dell does have an epic exchange policy. If you are going to get the Samsung buy it from a place with a hassle free return +exchange policy (Amazon, buy.com). A good U2412 will have an 1100:1 contrast ratio, but there have been plenty of reviews and user reports of units which max out around 800:1.
