TFT Central always have a very in depth pixel responsiveness section:
Yes you are right don't buy at specs and like i said before it is personal what you can see.
And that monitor you mentioned is way to expensive it costs a whopping 479 euro's here and the Asus cost me only 300 so yes the colors are better and maybe the screen too but you are comparing 2 very different monitors here
The Asus is 24inch and the dell is 27inch and a different price tag. Again: for gaming there is simply no substitute for the Asus screen. the colors are the best i ever seen on a screen and the best is that is very cheap compare to the other monitors like the benQ they tested with and even that monitor has only 120 hz and belive me u will see the difference between 120 and 144 hz i saw it myself and it is not that the other monitors are bad or crap but you simply can't have both like the best colors and the fastness of the screens.
Also if u buy screen personally i don't like Samsung or Phillips what I've seen the screens are bad and very slow. But the LG is doing much better For example my nephew bought the screen that the company said it was good im talking the iilmaya here for 200euro's so we tested it and it was lagging all over the place and the colors were even worse no matter what we did we could not make it right and this was an 2ms screen btw.
He had an old LG screen bought in that time for like 130 euro's and it was far outperforming the iilmaya screen and the samsung, still there was ghosting but not as much as the other two.
So what i am saying is that it is important to buy a good brand screen with good warranty and Asus is known of its outstanding warranty's like i experienced myself.
So a long story short if you want to game buy The Asus screen or it is only for pictures and movies the IPS screen has better colors but is significant slower at gaming.
