Best 24" for me

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am looking for a new monitor. I have read alot about the panel types and other specs and I'm even more confused than before tongue.gif I would like a new monitor because the one I have now (AOC 2436swa) is less than great. I would like a monitor with better colors and contrast because in games like BF4 I find it very hard to see soldiers and I think colors and contrast have something to do with it. I read that TN panels are best for speed but IPS and VA are great for color and/or contrast. So I would like to know if there is some monitor that has a nice mid point between those things.

I will be using the monitor for games like BF4 as well as movies and browsing.

The monitor should have the following specs: - 24inch
- Anti glare coating (but could live without it if need be)
- 60hz would be enoguh
- 1920x1080 resolution ( would consider 1200 but don't know if there are any drawbacks )
- VESA mount is a must because I will buy a dual monitor stand
- 250€ budget that could stretch a bit

That's it I think biggrin.gif

Any advice would be appreciated!

You can buy a fairly decent model for 250.00 €. I suggest saving an extra couple hundred euros so you have better options. Continue using the monitor you have now if you can. All display technologies have negatives. I personally would not buy a TN monitor. I am not familiar with the merchants in your region. Here are some quick examples: tongue.gif

Hello geek branden,

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately 300€ is my top limit. I don't want to spend more on a display. I have been looking at the dell but I am not sure about the 1920x1200 resolution. I don't know if I would like it... or even what the benefits are. I heard that the extra pixels lower your fps in games by 10% and considering my gpu that is not exactly good.
