Can you help me find a new monitor?

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 

Hi, everyone! I need a new monitor, and I can take as much time as I need to find one. I want it to be the very best that I can find. Like, "hands down the best". The reason why it needs to be so good is, I literally spend every waking minute of my life on my monitor, so I need to be able to live with it.

 

The new monitor I buy must meet all of the following requirements:

 

  • Budget: Doesn't cost any more than maybe $600 shipped or so. I don't know if I can afford much more than that.
  • Resolution: Has a 1920 x 1080 native resolution, or at least looks great in 1080p for games (my system isn't powerful enough for 1440p)
  • Physical dimensions: Can fit into a space that's 18" high and 25" wide
  • Adaptive Sync: Has G-SYNC
  • Refresh Rate: Has a high refresh rate (144Hz or higher)
  • Other: The OSD indicator for the signal type that is currently being used must NOT be dead-center (I'd prefer it if I never saw it, but hey). I apologize for this difficult-to-determine requirement.

 

Please don't recommend the Acer XB241H. I already owned that one and it had horrible backlight uniformity (which is extremely distracting in very dark scenes). So, I already returned it and now I'm looking for a better monitor. Can you help?

 

Edit: Forgive me if I seem a bit off. I'm very depressed about this whole situation. I didn't know it was going to be this difficult to find a good monitor. When I bought the 2253BW 8 years ago, it was a piece of cake. I just asked the OCN community back then what the best monitor was for under $400, and everyone recommended the 2253BW hands down and so I bought it and I've been very happy with it. Now it's like, "that's a loaded question... they all kinda suck".

We already went through the entire list of monitors before.
Every single 1080p gsync monitor that we talked about is a panel lottery.

You don't want the Benq (Zowie) XL2430T because that doesn't have gsync.
You don't want the Benq XL2720Z because it's 27", and no gsync, even though you saw my perfect lottery panel already.

There's really no other monitor left unless you want the Gsync AOC monitor frown.gif
https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/aoc-g2460pg/
But this is just as much of a lottery as the others unless you want it.
At least it uses the older M240HW01 V8 that the old Benq Z series and VG248QE use, not the newer PG Asus monitors (and the Acer you returned).
The ones you don't want are the new true 8 bit panels as you saw in the XB241H and PG248Q. This AOC uses the older panel.

Maybe the Benq XL2420G? But Benq discontinued this monitor so it's a price gouge...

sorry man, there's just no monitor in existence with the specs you want that isn't something you already know about.

What's the visual difference between what you're calling "true 8 bit" and what the AOC has?

 

And let's not give up hope. I made this thread to start over. I'm starting fresh here. I want to do it right this time. If I can find a good monitor that doesn't have that annoying bad backlight uniformity problem that my XB241H had, then that would be great.

Have you looked at the Asus PG248Q? It is 144Hz, G-Sync, 24", 1920x1080 and is $449.99 from BestBuy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-rog-swift-pg248q-24-3d-led-hd-gsync-monitor-black/5376601.p?id=bb5376601&ref=199&loc=8BacdVP0GFs&acampID=1&siteID=8BacdVP0GFs-UdRWMiuiccA9eUnjblm2Ng

I'm not familiar with how good the panel is but this seems to fit the criteria you are looking for. If someone else could offer more info on it such as backlight bleed and response times etc that would be appreciated

Has to do with color reproduction, especially with dithering and alpha blending and so forth. 6 bit+FRC is emulated 8 bit, which is better than true 6 bit without FRC, but you're still going to get noise in dark shades. That's why the 8 bit PG278Q Swift and XL2730Z look so good alongside the XB270HU IPS panel, except for the color shift issues of a TN. But you can still get banding. That won't be removed unless you can get a true 10 bit monitor, which requires a videocard which can output 10 bit also. But there are *no* true 10 bit gaming monitors. None. You would have to buy a 4k LG OLED TV for that type of quality, or spend money on a 10 bit LCD which won't have any adaptive sync.

We already talked about the PG248Q. It's the exact same true 8 bit 1080p panel as the XB241H (it's NOT the M240HW01), and thus the same issues his sample had with uniformity.

I'd recomend that you look for something thats a full OLED monitor, IPS monitors are a grade up from LCD monitors in terms of quality
and OLED should be a grade up from IPS

and find out which monitor gives out best colour tones, from my exprience, sharp monitors have bad colour tones and panasonic has the best colour output, samsung has a fading red and a over deep blue colour tone which is not natrual compared to panasonic.

Yeah, unfortunately the PG248Q is reported to use the exact same panel as the XB241H, and so that means I might end up with the exact same problem where there's a distinct difference in brightness in very dark scenes between the top and bottom of the panel (there's a "horizon", I'll call it, where the brighter bottom part meets the much-darker top).

 

When displaying normal stuff (that is, not very dark scenes), it's not noticeable at all. I can watch movies and play brighter-colored games all day and never see it. The minute I play like, Descent 2 or watch some super-dark colored movie, I see it and I can't stop seeing it.

 

It's not gamma shift or anything like that. It doesn't change depend on how I'm looking at the monitor (higher, lower, from one side or the other, etc.). It's a problem with the panel.

Thank you. It sounds to me like I might not care about this detail very much.

I brought a IPS monitor from LG, it cost me 247 nzd, its brand new and its also 24 inches. My monitor falls into the mid range price of monitors. (the monitor is IPS, and uses LED back lighting)
(Colour tone seems to be quite good and balanced)

I think panasonic only sells TV monitors

there are more expensive models where they say it can produce 99% of all colour ranges, its also from LG, but the price tag is like 400-600nzd if I still rember corectly.
Not sure if they sell OLED monitors for computers.

Reaserch says that for a single monitor screen, the maximum recomended size is 24inches.
I'm not a professional at monitors though so some of my info may be wrong.

I'm 100% confident that IPS will enharch quality over LCD though.

But what about 144Hz or higher and G-SYNC? After experiencing that, I care more about that than perfect color accuracy and a perfect image. Sure, I don't want crap, but I certainly don't want to be without a very high refresh rate and G-SYNC - not after what I experienced from that with the XB241H. Being back to my 8-year old Samsung 2253BW is an unpleasant experience.

 

Can you recommend me some monitors that meet my requirements?
