TN vs IPS

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I would like to buy a new monitor and I can't choose between two monitors I like. I'd appreciate if someone helps me.

I will use the monitor for a general purpose, playing games, desktop work like photo editing, web browsing, chatting and watching films. The best for me is the best could be for my sight for long hours face to the display.

What kind of games do you play? Unless you are into FPS games and value the quicker response time/refresh rate, I would say go with the IPS.

Asus hands down, Due to it being a IPS its just far suprior color.

Higher Resolution also.

Out of those 2 - the ASUS IPS is your choice. But there are better monitors out there.

I play Counter Strike and Grand Theft Auto basically, I am not a fanatic but I wouldn't like to get a ghosting effect while I play, that's why I searched for a high refresh rate and a low response time monitor (TN Philips)

Which IPS 24" monitor would you like or do you think is the best for $350?

I don't really care about the inches, 24 or 27 is ok, Im worried about the quality of the image for my sight.

Which Korean do you recommend me?

Why doesn't anyone choose the TN Philips, is it too bad?eh-smiley.gif

Thank You for answering.

I bought a 144hz tn monitor for counter strike and i love it. But my vote still got to the IPS because i think you'll value the better color more. possibly look at 1440p if you have enough horsepower to run it.

Thank You for answering.

If you need to run an XBOX/PS3 then the Korean PLS monitors wont work for you - normally the QNIX DP2710 PLS would be my choice - 1440p and overcloable to 120hz+ and around $300. My other choice would be a BenQ XL2420T or XL2420TE (if you can afford it). Super fast 120hz, and supports lightboost 2D which is awesome.

It just doesnt look very good compared to PLS/IPS. Both have super low input lag.
