Triple monitor IPS suggestion

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I currently have R9 290 Tri-X and planning to go triple portrait setup (possibly with an additional GPU). I originally looked at VG248QE with a plan of debezeling but I am worried about the viewing angle. For this reason, I think IPS is the way to go and currently looking at BL2411PT and U2412M. I don't particularly have any preferences when it comes down to brands.

I play FPS and MMO games so I prefer not to go higher than 5ms (I know U2412M is 8ms GTG). I think anything higher than 24" is not worth it for portrait setup. I'd like to get some feedback from experts on here. Thanks!

Nah, the IPS monitors that claim 5 ms GTG (which is kind of a paper spec anyway; doesn't specify which grays etc. and different transitions behave differently) all do it via very high overdrive settings that incur noticeable reverse ghosting artifacts that look much worse than slightly more blurring anyway. I guess if seeing 60, 70, 80 percent of a color transition a couple ms earlier at any expense is key, then, uh, sure? That said, some of the ones quoting lower response times have modes or settings with more reasonable pixel transition characteristics.

e.g. the BenQ BL2411PT's "5 ms" is probably quoted with AMA Premium option setting, which gives trailing artifacts like this behind moving objects. I mean, seriously.


I guess you like 16:10 options? If you don't want to spend up on the BL2411PT, the Asus VS24AH-P should be pretty decent. You'd need to find VESA mount stands for portrait, but were you going to get those anyway? If not, at the price, you can afford them.

If 16:9 is okay, there are some thin bezel options out of box.

The U2412 belongs in garbage bin along with the PA248Q since both use grainy matte coatings and use low LED PWM Dimming (read about the side effects) frequencies. This [H]ard Forum thread has all of the answers and links to reviews and user reports for the BenQ BL2411PT which is the best 16:10 option along with the Asus VS24AH and PB248Q (not available in North America).

For PC use only the VS24AH (it can't scale 16:9 resolutions properly when connected to a console/external device like a PVR or blu-ray player) is a better choice since it is cheaper and essentially just as good as the BL2411PT.

I'd go with the U2414H. Uses an actual dimming circuit (not PWM) and fast internal circuitry with very low input lag. Also has very thin bezel and the anti-glare coating is better than their previous lineups. Also you can daisy-chain it off of a single DisplayPort output.

GTG response time is basically a made-up number, it's best to ignore it.

Thank for the replies. I don't have a preference when it comes down to 16:9 or 16:10. VS24AH-P doesn't seem to pivot and has high bezel thickness. I have to search and see what needs to be done to get those bezels reduced to a reasonable thickness. I don't plan on using these monitors for non-computer use so you can rule that out.

U2414H seems like a good monitor, and will keep reading the reviews.

I also want to point out that I currently have a glossy screen and prefer to go matte. What about VN248H-P?

I have three u2414h and they are great. The bezel is minimal and the picture and colors even across all three

Do you have this in portrait or landscape? If you have it in portrait, got a picture to share?

So many monitors to choose from. frown.gif

I am looking into VS24AH-P. Can I debezel this? For some reasons, there's 1 Russian(?) review on it (very limited info on this product).
