Do any of the samsung's have a glossy screen?
post #12 of 49
I can personally vouch for the Samsung 245BW, though it's an older model now.

A friend of mine just got a 24" Samsung TOC monitor and it's fantastic quality. I'm not a fan of the red plastic part on the bottom but its a sweet monitor.
At long last...

sadly, not usually. However, Samsungs have great picture quality, and I think you'll be happy with one if you can bring yourself away from the gloss. I used to think I always needed a glossy monitor, but that's just not the case. That monitor will roll in gaming.

I'm looking at the Acer G24 right now, since it's the only good display with a glossy screen. Anyone have experience with the G24?

Maybe look into a dell 24", they're great and you won't be worry.

I can't find any dell 24" monitor besides the 2408WFP, and that's not a TN panel.

I'm actually looking for a 24" LCD at the moment as well, and the Dell 2408WFP is standing out (if I want to spend the $$$). Do you want a TN panel because of response time? I get the impression that that's not an issue with the Dell 2408.

In a nut shell:

2-5 ms = no lag
16 ms = 1 frame behind
33 ms = 2 frames behind

Your monitor can only display 60 FPS, 1 frame every 16.6 ms.

I do play competitively, but I've never thought this much into it. If I ever encounter a situation where that 1 or 2 frames would save my life, I would say it would be a very rare occurence, but it does happen.

I'm on the edge of switching to S-PVA panels. Someone push me over it .

I do still very much want a glossy screen.
