Selling Current Monitors.. What to buy next?? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Personally I see a point in three monitor setup for 'casual' use and no EF/Surround gaming only if you use two smaller screens in portrait or a similar setup. It would distract me way too much if I had three big displays displaying stuff when I'm concentrated on only one.
I use a dual-monitor (1200+1080p) setup right now and aside from gaming, I have all the viewing space I need for multi-tasking.


Why not experiment? Turn one of them off. See how it works out for you. Got enough space? Then sell two away, buy a 27'' 1440p and spoil yourself. Et cetera...
Give yourself some time to acclimate to the changes though. I'd recommend at least a week. thumb.gif

When it releases. The specs on this beast sound amazing.

Pretty sure thats going to be a $6K monitor. And dont listen to Shindo if he's only basing his decision on the Ezio monitor based on response time lol 4ms is more than fine, but the kicker with that monitor is that it has 240hz refresh without interpolation (true 240fps) and 240hz backlight strobing capable ..that will destroy current lightboost monitors when toasty supports it.

My recommendation is 1 27" QNIX @ 120hz, and maybe a 23" lightboost monitor beside it if youre at a super competitive level. I've had 2x27" monitors and it is awkward.

According to the publicly available information in the Eizo manual (page 15), it is a 120Hz strobe backlight, combined with a double-pass refresh, so your eyes are only seeing 120 frames per second. No interpolation is being used, but it is not a full 240 separate frames per second.

ToastyX is not needed because it's an official blur-reduction strobe backlight, rather than LightBoost that is normally force-bundled with 3D Vision (and needed ToastyX to force-unbundle the blur elimination benefits from 3D Vision)

Strobe length is the chief determinator of amount of motion blur. RIght now, LightBoost=10% set a high benchmark: It has the motion blur equivalence of approximately of a 700fps@700Hz sample-and-hold display. (1.4ms strobe flash = 1/700th second sample-and-hold)

If Eizo is using 1/240sec strobe flashes, that would create about 4.1ms of motion blur. It won't be as clear as even LightBoost=100% during 100Hz (2.8ms of motion blur, the most blurry LightBoost mode). However, color-quality wise, it definitely would blow away all LightBoost monitors in color quality -- no contest -- without even looking at it first.



I am quite interested in finding out the strobe length of this monitor. It's possible that brightness adjustment is done by strobe length adjustment. This would be wonderful if this was the case. On the Eizo, so if the 350cd/m2 measurement is during 100% brightness for 4.1ms of motion blur, then dimming brightness to 35cd/m2 (10%) for nighttime gameplay would theoretically result in a 0.41ms strobe flash -- ~1/2400sec -- the motion blur equivalence of ~2400fps@2400Hz (conceptually, imagine it as 2400fps with a massive black frame insertion ratio -- basically 120 visible frames of 1/2400sec persistence each (0.41ms). That even competes with short-persistence CRT phosphor.

But we don't yet know what strobe length Eizo is currently using for their FDF2405W, and whether its brightness adjustment adjusts its strobe length (instead simply dimming the strobe without shortening it, in a motion clarity-versus-brightness tradeoff, like LightBoost brightness settings does). Hopefully, this is the best-case scenario. It *does* have an impressive brightness in strobe mode of 350cd/m2, which means plenty of strobe brightness headroom to shorten the strobe pulse to become far clearer/shorter persistence than LightBoost=10%.

Either way, the Eizo FDF2405W looks to be one sweet speciality monitor -- even if not targeted at gamers.

Deffinitately get the 27" QNIX, can't really beat 2650x1440p @ 120Hz.... I have two and it is ridiculous from my 23" Samsungs. You will laugh at people that pay $500+ for either 27" @ 120Hz or 1440p. Never mind both! Get them from Green-sum on eBay. Free 2 day shipping also! The increasing popularity of these is crazy though so might be hard to find sometimes.

That's why I am saying it may be worth it to sell the 3 monitors and upgrade to maybe 2 better ones.. I do like multi monitors but Idk if I need 3 haha

Hey man why didn't you tell me you were looking to upgrade!

I had 3 monitors in 1600x 900 (i was hooked in the idea of multiple monitor gaming).... I ended up RMA them, huge fight but patience and perseverance (plus knowledge of laws) helped me win the case

I didnt find a good advantage on triple gaming due to all the lack of interest on developers.

I ended up getting a 27" and was thinking of getting another but theres really no need. I can fit Netflix, Word, Chrome and Excel simultaneously that 1440p really pays up.

Remember!!!! nvidia is either 1 or 3 monitors gaming, so getting 2 expensive monitors is more "looks" than gaming oriented.

I would give 1 27 inch 1440p a try Unless I OverClock i cant run BF3 on ultra (multiplayer) on my 680 and get 60+ FPS steadily. so imagine 2 in future titles (i really want to see arma 3 now that i know its graphic intense)

I can give you pointers between several 27 1440p monitors since i did all my research under a month-2 months ago.

I second this unless you want glossy finish then go with monoprice. monoprice glossy screen has anti glare, korean ones dont.


Green-sum "test"before shipping

Green sum has warranty on up to 1 dead pixel in center region 3-5 in sides if im not wrong (either way best return policy on ebay from vendor) make sure you ask on a PM if its DOA or has more dead/stuck pixels than allowable as per description do you pay return shipping.

He said yes to me but othere users were not so lucky, but if you have it in writting its a huge plus for paypal insurance.

Another thing remember this are non QC passed by apple screens in most cases. if its bleeding sometimes this bezzel fixes the issue Due to that be prepared to quick fixes aka open it up to fix bleed, or a couple dead pixels.

NOW don't be scared monoprice - wont accept returns unless it has more than 5 dead pixels, DELL and samsung ones cost twice as much and most users experience heavy light bleed.

Also "perfect pixel"is a scam I ordered mine no dead pixels no lightbleed.

I OC mine to 75hz and didnt want to go over that soince the games i play dont even reach that in the 680 on ultra.

oh and if yyou want to wall mount qnix you will need to remove the bezell and screen since the screws to remove the desk stand are behind the screen.
