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.

The XL2420T has practically the same features than the Philips, except the Philips has more contrast, I know it because I was looking for the Benq when I chose the Philips, so in this case you would choose the Philips.

I read before about the IPS monitors that they oversature the colors and make as a result an irreal image, is that true? rolleyes.gif

Thank You people! biggrin.gif

Nope IPS monitors when calibrated properly looks amazing. I have a calibrated Panasonic ST60 HDTV beside it and the image are virtually identical (outside of dark images since the ST50 has way better blacks)

It looks like that Philips does indeed support Lightboost http://www.blurbusters.com/faq/120hz-monitors/ - so for pure gaming, its a good choice.

The ASUS one will look better cuz its IPS, but everything else sucks - input lag, super agressive anti glare, no lightboost support and only 60hz refresh.

This is true for professional wide-gamut IPS monitors, when displaying standard gamut content. For consumer models, this is not the case.

I read about some features which mean the quality of the image: sRGB, adobe RGB and CIE
I can see some monitors in their specifications say some values of these features, like 83% of CIE or something like.
I guess this is the capacity of the monitor to emulate a real image, is it correct?
which feature between those three is the most relevant? Are there this features in TN panels too?

In the shop I saw some IPS monitors and I saw a little bit motion blur in the panel but not in the TNs.. rolleyes.gif

Thank you again people thumb.gif

Higher Resolution also.

How the heck is 1080p higher res than 1200p?!
it is 16:10
AKA 1610 times superior in every way!!!

IPS gives permanant image persistence.

Except that it doesnt? Theres 0 IR with IPS, theres some image retention in very few cases with overclocked PLS panels (mine is not one of them)

They all represent the same "quality" - the ability to represent different colours. Theoretically, the higher the gamut (sRGB is a smaller gamut than aRGB, which is a smaller gamut than CIE), the more saturated colours a monitor can display. That is to say, a 100% red on an sRGB panel will be less red than 100% red on an aRGB panel, and both would be less red than a (theoretical, since no 100% CIE panels exist right now) 100% red CIE panel. So, a deep red rose on an sRGB will appear to be less vivid and less "red" than the same rose depicted on an aRGB panel.

That being said, this is not a good thing. The entirety of consumer content on the internet (one hundred percent is done in sRGB. There does exist content in the higher gamuts, but these are almost all exclusive professional content and material. You will not encounter this unless you specifically look for aRGB content. CIE content is harder to find - in fact, I don't think it exists on the internet. The problem then, is if you have an aRGB panel, and are trying to display sRGB content. In which case, things will just look wrong - oversaturated and unnatural. Some people might like it, but it doesn't change the fact that the colours are wrong.

TL,DR; stick with sRGB. Going with aRGB or higher is asking for trouble as a consumer.

IPS panels do have slightly longer response times (these are pixel response times, not input lag), meaning slightly more blur. The "feel" of typical consumer IPS panels should be the same (input lag or mouse delay), regardless if the response times are longer (slightly more blur in motion).

if you decide to go for TN 120-144Hz in the end, I wouldn't go for that philips.

Benq (xl2420t(e)) and asus (vg248qe) also have good options on TN high hz monitors. And also if you use a Nvidia graphics card and you decide for a TN 120-144Hz monitor then I would wait for a g-sync compatible monitor. IPS panels with g-sync will probably come too, but I think not this year. If you're on AMD and gonna stay with AMD then don't bother with g-sync...
