is it comparable to an IPS Screen?

$799? well thats maybe too much for me. i mean with that price i could buy an upgrade for my rig.

Well the IPS screens will have the best colour and proberly the highest resolution, so they will have the best pictures.
But as many have said, for pure gaming (especially fps games) the 120hz+ screens are amazing, might not have the crispy clear pictures the IPS screens does, but they are not bad either.

With this, there is very, very little blur with moving objects on the screen. thumb.gif

When it comes to colour accuracy (you mention game development above), it won't be ideal with either of these displays. There are ICC profiles out there that you can load to get the colours reasonably close to accurate (or as close as possible with the hardware involved). But it's still going to be a TN panel, so there's only so much calibration can do and you're viewing angles won't be nearly as good as with an IPS display. TBH 120/144 Hz displays and IPS displays are like comparing apples and oranges...they simply target different people.

well as of now im like 70% gaming and 30% game developing. but in the future that might be the other way around. but i think when that time comes, ill be off buying a professional monitor instead like the Dell models right? as for viewing angles, i dont really see the use of it. i mean, i run a single monitor and its just in the middle of my desk.

is TN panel that bad and not really comparable with a IPS panel? in terms of display, color, brightness etc. etc.

well, yeah i agree with the IPS panel, but i tend to turn down my settings because i game for long hours, and it strains my eyes so i have to put brightness as well as contrast down.
and in this settings i dont think its showing the best display right now. its kinda dull for me, but what the heck, it doesnt strain my eyes..

Go for a 120+hz screen then, both the Asus and BenQ monitors are really great

I was fully planning on getting a Asus VG248QE as well...but then I decided to try a 1440p 60Hz Korean monitor since it was roughly the same price. So far...I have not regretted it. I think resolution trumps refresh rate. I have been completely amazed by 90Hz+ monitors, but nothing like this. To be honest I was expecting going to 1440p to be about like going from 720p to 1080p...but it was much, much better.

I think the higher resolution nets some of the benefits that higher fps gaming gets. With the pixels so tightly packed they have to respond faster and I think that provides a higher level of "smoothness". Not as good as 90Hz+ does, but still some...and then you get all the benefits of 1440p detail.

All I can say is I like it...and has probably been the best hardware purchase I've made in a long time.

I have the XL2420T and the GW2450 which uses an 8-bit VA panel similar to IPS.

The XL2420T is really good for games. But i like the colors, sharpness and image quality on my GW2450. The viewing angles of the XL2420T is really bad so be aware of that specially when leaning back to your seat you will notice that the upper part of the screen gets dark.

If you're coming from an IPS or VA monitor, you will notice that the colors and image quality is like a downgrade. Watching movies in XL2420T is not good when lying on bed or leaning back to your seat. But for gaming and normal stuff like browsing this monitor is really good.

maybe i need to get my hands on one of those 144hz monitor, i mean, maybe its a good buy after all?

Mine does, I can't speak for the rest...I can't really see much difference between 120 and 144 though so I stick with 120, as 144 requires a bit of extra grunt from my gpu
