Thinking about going from 120hz TN panel to IPS Panel.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok so the title basically explains my situation. I currently have one ASUS VG278h due only to space constraints and not cash flow, but that is changing soon when I buy a new house.
I have recently been looking at going over to IPS panels since I don't use 3D much at all and new vg278hs are getting harder to find. So my question is for gaming in surround, would I notice a massive difference, obviously in resolution and colour reproduction and what about refresh rate?

I've been checking these out http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=558_1368&products_id=23197 If anyone's had experience with them please throw me a bit of input as I don't know much about AOC and never used any of their products, bare in mind I have plenty of horsepower to run three of these screens, with two Titans and potentially a third down the track all going under water.

Any input/advice would be appreciated cheers all:thumb:

i used to have surround vg278h's and they were good but i hated the bezels. im trying to work out what projectors i want (3d or not). im using a samsung 970d 1440p monitor and love the color and sharpness. i still have 1 vg278h and its next to my 970d and its unbelieveable how bad the vg looks. colors are whacked and the grainy pixels stand out because of the 27". just my 2 cents

Have you ever tested LightBoost on your VG278H before? LightBoost can eliminate motion blur for 2D gaming, not just 3D Vision. Google "lightboost" to see how it reduces motion blur for 2D gaming.

Remember, there can be massive differences in motion clarity between different 120 Hz displays:

60 Hz LCD -- baseline comparision -- 16.7ms continuous frame
120 Hz IPS overclock -- 40% less motion blur (1.7x less) -- ~10ms (streaking exceeds 1 frame)
120 Hz TN regular -- 50% less motion blur (2x less) -- 8.33ms continuous frame
144 Hz TN regular -- 60% less motion blur (2.4x less) -- 6.9ms continuous frame
120 Hz LightBoost (100%) -- 85% less motion blur (7x less) --2.4ms strobe flash
120 Hz LightBoost (10%) -- 92% less motion blur (12x less) -- 1.4ms strobe flash
120 Hz CRT -- about 90-95% less motion blur -- 1 to 2ms phosphor flicker

The only time I've used light boost is during 3D gaming but I've read about the light boost hack or glitch for these monitors, just never tried it.

3 Overlord Tempests X270OC's would be my pick. But you'll defiantly want a third Titan at that massive res. They can do 120hz and are 2560X1440. It might be smart to test an ips first with bf3 to see if the input lag bothers you. While they will produce an image second to none I'm not to sure how they go at fast paced shooters.

Did you make a decision Bloodbath? I see those 2 Titans you got and you are in need of some more screen realty with surround goodness. If you do go IPS go with the 120Hz, going back to 60Hz would be horrible, especially if you do multiplayer gaming. Another option is a 4K TV if you can find one that will do 60hz, but that is going to be pricey.

Yeah mate Im getting two more VG278hs as soon as I move house within the next couple of months and potentially another Titan when I get my tax return:D and yeah I completely agree I have too much horsepower for one screen.

Noooo, don't go back to IPS.. :/ Trust me, you'll notice the difference. I recently upgraded to an ASUS VG248QE (144HZ) from my old monitor (can't exactly remember the model, it was a 60Hz IPS), and the difference was mindblowing. 144hz is like, waaaaaaaaaaay smoother for everything. Even just going on normal computers and such now (i.e. friends houses, parents computer, school, etc.) 60Hz feels soooo sloooow tongue.gif. And honestly, the colour clarity isn't THAT much better. It is better, slightly, but not worth losing the refresh rate imo.

It really depends on a person's preference for better color, or preference for better motion quality.

Some people aren't really sensitive to motion blur -- usually people who don't bother tracking eyes across the screen during fast pans during FPS games. Or that they play slower moving games. Over time, I've found that many people prefer one or the other. People who really can clearly tell apart 60Hz->120Hz, needs to see 120Hz->120Hz LightBoost, since sometimes the transition to LightBoost is a bigger transition than 60Hz->120Hz during games like QuakeLive and Team Fortress 2, while it doesn't benefit Crysis 3 nearly as much, etc. There are people who have switched from IPS to TN and love LightBoost (testimonials). But there are people who have also regretted their decision.

One thing for sure, is that if you want LightBoost, you really want fps=Hz to get true benefits from LightBoost. (e.g. 120fps@120Hz, or 100fps@100Hz). The benefits of LightBoost amplify greatly with the ability to sustain fps=Hz operation. Bear this in mind if you get triple monitors, as you won't get 120fps Crysis on triple surround, but you'll have no problems with 120fps in many games with a dual Titan SLI on a triple LightBoost surround. (If you do get surround, remember to follow surround instructions)

Anybody who reads this thread i will some it up.

Forget about the 1440p and 1600p monitors for gaming.

144fps will blow your mind and you will not regret it.

Try and buy the Asus VG248QE. In the USA its only $261 from newegg.


I say all this from experience.
Ive had all different setups.
Ive used 1080p samsung 55" tvs, s23a750, Optoma gt720e projector, 3x VG278H, Samsung 970D, Samsung and now the 3x VG248QE which is by far the best in portrait surround. Im as fussy as they come and i cant knock it.
