Cant decide between 144Hz and IPS

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey

I am trying to decide between BenQ 2411Z and Dell U2414H or U2715H, all i really use my pc for is gaming and movies (never really had a 144hz display before )
I do play CS:GO and Battlefields and some other shooters too, but just for fun and im not too serious about them,
Mostly play Diablo III and other less lag/high hz requierment titles.
What would you buy ? I know I`ll absolutely hate the TN panel useless viewing angles, eventho the response time is fast, and it`s 144Hz
One option would be to buy Dell U2414H and BenQ 2411Z and use em accordingly to what im playing biggrin.gif

When you start using ips you will be amazed at what you were missing in terms of color reproduction across the entire screen. When you start playing games on an ips you will be missing your tn panel in terms of pixel response time, but the image will be better. Once you go to 144hz and play on that for a while it hurts to go back to ips for games. It is a double-edged sword so to speak, which is why i recommend the new ips 144hz monitors...I believe acer and asus have one out now but are expensive. The other option like you said is to buy two separate monitors. If you are heavily into photo editing than ips, otherwise tn panels are fine for web surfing and obviously games.thumb.gif

This is probably the best reviewed 144hz ips panel out now:

(it also supports adaptive sync if you care, but only up to 90Hz)

I owned a BenQ XL2420G (144Hz, G-Sync, TN) until fairly recently; although I really enjoyed using the monitor for gaming I decided to send it back for a refund because I couldn't justify the cost. As a result, I went back to using my Dell U2515H (IPS, 60 Hz). Although the colour reproduction is superior, I miss the XL2420G's 144Hz refresh rate.

Anyway, you might also want to consider a 1440p IPS 144Hz monitor.

You're comparing apples and oranges here.
But if you truly want something that should be the best of both worlds, you may want to wait a few months for this panel:

http://www.eizoglobal.com/products/foris/fs2735/index.html

While this is a freesync monitor, it will also have built in blur reduction, although its ranges of strobing are completely unknown at the moment. And this will be an IPS panel so it will have nice colors, fast enough response time, and be good for movies.

You saw the pictures of the Acer XB270HU, right? You saw how good the panel looked in comparison to the TN Asus ROG Swift PG278Q (The swift DID look good as long as it came with 2.2 gamma, instead of the defective samples that shipped with 1.6-1.8 gamma---those were bad). The Eizo should rival the XB270HU in quality.

Eizo got a bad rap over the super panel lottery FS2421 Foris, which was an even bigger lottery than the ROG or Acer was. But they deserve a second chance so it's best to wait until this screen comes out.
If you can't wait, your options are a bit limited..

XB271HU (successor to XB270HU, should NOT have QA issues) for Gsync
Eizo for freesync.

It's always a gamble when it comes to monitors sadly. Re the Eizo monitor you mentioned, I believe the OP would need to change their GPU (or are you suggesting it'd still be good, regardless of whether or not they could use FreeSync)?

Well you should definately have at least a 120Hz panel these days for gaming, there's no reason for 60Hz and it's a complete waste of an nvidia gtx 780, so I'd definitely get 120 or 144Hz monitor as you'll produce enough frames to benefit from it, at 120Hz at least depending on the game and configuration etc. IPS if you want good colours, TN panels can get expensive if looking for clear images and colours and are harder to find if you want a low input lag solution, the two just don't seem to go together that well.

Thanks a bunch for all the inputs guys.
I think the ASUS MG279Q is a lovely monitor but extremely expensive. Its like 800eur but for 400eur i could buy the 2411z and the u2414h. Also i dont think the eizo is for me since i dont use amd cards at all. I could always just buy the benq 2411z and resell it for 80% of the value i bought it for incase i dont like it, since there really seems to be a market for those things locally.

Assuming that they don't do something silly, you'd still be able to get standard non-synced 144hz on an Nvidia GPU.

You can have your cake and eat it with IPS these days if you have the capital, they have very low input lag just not as low as TN is usually, not sure if you'll find one like that at a more reasonable price though. Features that cost a lot are the basically useless freesync style features and 3d support, since many games you can just cap your framerate to 100, 120, 125, 142, 144 or whichever FPS doesn't drop for you and you'll do better with a capped framerate during actual gameplay due to consistent mouse movements and other movements instead of a fluctuating framerate which will cause inconsistency.
