120Hz TN panel to a 60Hz IPS screen?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm thinking about ditching 120hz and going back to 60hz and getting an IPS screen as well. I have an IPS screen on my tablet and it looks really nice and vibrant and putting it up against my TN panel reveals a lack of colour depth. Yes, i've done my research and calibrated my screen as best i could without any special equipment and it looks alot better then it did out the box but still, i can't match my tablet.

So what's a good IPS screen with fast response time and little to no ghosting. Basically what is the best 1080p gaming IPS screen available right now?

What?... A 60hz IPS screen will be easier on a GTX 570 than 120hz.

I have a 60HZ IPS panel monitor w/ a 7MS response time and I haven't noticed any ghosting, but maybe that's because I have never used a 120HZ monitor before. I can tell you the IPS panel has much better colors than my ASUS monitor with a TN Panel, but that's a given.

I've been gaming on a U2412m with no problems. Haven't noticed any lag or ghosting. TFTcentral has a review up. Measured latency is pretty low.

Set your 120hz to 60hz and see if you can handle it. Personally it makes me want to gouge my eyes out and I would get a headache if I kept playing like that.

120hz 1080p vs 60hz 1080p?!

The only reason I'd get rid of a 120hz panel for an IPS is if the IPS was 1440p/1600p (personally 1600p).

i had Eizo fs2332, u2312hm, lg ips226v and others.

The ghosting is there, if you dont notice it means that your eyes have low sensitive or you are accustomed to low claims
From a good IPS 60hz to fast TN 60Hz like S24B350H there are less ghosting, if you compare to a 120/144Hz is even better.

^^ This. Even a 1200p IPS would be a nice upgrade.

Thanks for the posts guys, reason i want to switch is consistency. With 120hz you always need 2 top of the line GPUs to push the fps required to enjoy it to it's fullest potential. With a 60hz panel my 7970 should always give me 60fps in everything i play. I set my monitor to 60hz and it looked god awful, but i think that may just be because my monitor is designed to run at 120hz because i don't remember 60hz ever looking this terrible.

Ah, you read TFT, good thumb.gif

Does your Monitor have any reverse ghosting when using the pix per an tool?
