Some Questions about a new Monitor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

i think about to get a new monitor for gaming. At the Moment i have a 27" Asus VG278H mointor 120 Hz, 2 ms. All over i am realy happy with this one.

I ordered a BenQ 2730X wich i test actualy. What i can say, the colors are not as good as on my Asus.

I play mainly League of Legends and sadly i found alot of bugs with the game at 1440p. So i prefer to play it at 1080p. Also the BenQ randomly goes black and i have to restart my pc to fix it. This happens when i play a game at 1920x1080 and swich to windows with 1440p. Over all, i dont like this Monitor.

I think i should watch out for a good 24" 1080p monitor.

I will sent the BenQ back and ordered the Asus MG248Q to see if this one fits better.

Does it even make sense to get a new monitor oder should i just stay with my Asus VG278H. Is the MG248Q a good Monitor for my needs?

Any help is welcome :-)

Sorry for my bad english, i hope you guys understand what i am trying to say.

I'm not surprised that you're unhappy with colors coming from a TN panel, they are the worst. However, some factory calibrations are far worse than others. The Asus is not as bad, but still not up to my liking.--BUT it is better calibrated. I'm kinda guessing that you are not interesting in buying a calibrator and learning the process?

If you want high refresh rate and out of the box decent colors, then I would suggest you go with a high refresh rate IPS.

It's high risk and a lot of work to import from China , navigating a Chinese website etc etc so I won't mention the HKC x3 (144hz 1080p , but VA panel @5000 to 1 contrast ratio that I now own). Oh and then you must calibrate it as its horrible out of box and no gamma that saves properly.

Thanks for your post. My old Asus is als a TN Panale. Since i look for a primary gaming monitor i prefer a TN Panal over a IPS. My experience with IPS where not good. Most of them felt laggy and slow to me compared with my 120 Hz Asus.

Dont get me wrong, i realy wanna buy a new monitor wich is a bit faster, but i dont wanna have worse colors than my actual panel. Overall i know the problems of a TN panel but i can deal with them without problems.

I'm using a VA panel and that's supposed to have more lag, which i can tell you input lag is more important to me. However, I don't fee enough or any to bother me.

btw, if you want good color TN panel, DELL makes one:

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_s2716dg.htm

Basically solves what you can't tolerate, which are bad colors. Of course, price is premium at 569.99 usd . Dell usually has sales several times a year though smile.gif

Well the Dell looks nice, but i am a kind of competitiv gamer and i prefer a 24" and 1920 x 1080. My game doesnt work well wit higher res. too many bugs with scalings of icons and stuff.

You're right. It seems they put too much focus on non integer resolutions for gaming panels. 4k scales 1080p and 720 very nicely due to doubling, but 1600p from 1080p sources will not be good.
There's really not a lot of good color 120hz+ 1080p tn panels.
I will keep looking and see what I can find.
The new Dell IPS screens have even lower lag than many of the 120hz TN panels. The U2417hj, for example is the lowest IPS lag ever tested. I thought I would benefit from 120hz or more, but it really does not affect my gameplay from a 60hz panel. Tickrate for most servers I play in bf4 is 30-45hz.
