16:10

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a 16:10 monitor, 2-3ms response, 27" or larger - preferably 3840x2400 but 1920x1200 would suffice.

Any suggestions? I'm not doing too well in my own searches.

Unfortunately the only newer ones I'm aware of with a response time like that in that aspect ratio are either crappy TN panels or $1,500-3k pro-grade IPS ones, and there really aren't that many of either kind left in that ratio.

That's what I was afraid of. Considering giving on the response time, but even then I'm coming up with monoprice monitors as, seemingly, my best option.

Any experiences with this thing: https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-2560x1600-Finished-Rotation-110734/dp/B00IACE9IO/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1475924599&sr=1-1&keywords=2560x1600&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_two_browse-bin%3A6570750011&th=1 ?

I would say no chance.
Many releases are in 16:9 1080p or 21:9 1080p, beyond that you pay like crazy for 2560x1440 again 16:9 or 3840:2160.

16:10 is probably left only on work oriented monitors frown.gif Which is a shame because even for gaming those extra 120px vertically are awesome. Let alone for working with text it is a must.

There may be some decent 2560x1440 and 3840x1440 monitors but the prices are crazy. Sizes are 27"+.

Aye, I refuse to touch a 16:9 - absolutely useless for working, which it will be used for as well. I'd rather continue on with the dying monitor.

Futile to pursue or even think about ever again in your life. Fan of 16:10 myself and all i've used this century till now, but it's a dying to basically dead. You can go on and hold your breath for it, though you'll probably be dead for eternity and it will still never happen.

Similar things to your request would be a Dell 30". Your response time requirement will not be met, there are no 16:10 2-3ms monitors today, i don't actually recall there ever being one (non crt) that ever existed. Closest to that is a 4k Tn Panel, still 16:9, but if that's not enough productivity space you need more than one monitor. There is also 38" 21:9 coming at 1600p tall, though not with that response time. But discounting 1440p at 27" for a 1200p is illogical. It's still more hor and vert usable space than 1200p so there is no reason at all to settle for 1200p at this point all things being equal, which they are not since a lot of the 27" 1440 have faster response time than any 1200p and not only that but the image is much more crisp than a 24" 1200p monitor.

Thank you for the input - I'll pass on the breath holding but I will be waiting on a new monitor.

Regarding past monitors, I-Inc/Hanns-G made a series of 27.5" 16:10's about 8 years ago that claimed to have a 3ms response - though I haven't exactly measured to check.. Terrible build quality and a very interesting stock color calibration but with a colorimeter and some luck they were a great value at $450 (when anything else even close was $1000+). That's what I'm using now - it's finally dying but I'll see about replacing the backlight.
