False, you can get it on Amazon.

The 30" dell is great, but is much more expensive. The Iinc is way more value for your money.

I dont buy from Tiger that much. But can say they are OK ,good customer service and once in a while really good deals. I just bought a Evga gtx 570 from them. Because the egg was outta stock. You can order by phone ,the egg dosent do that. But the egg is my 1st choice.

My sig moniter was $279 at newegg. Its a great moniter. Wish I had waited a couple of weeks they put the samsungs on sale. But never the less. I like mine. And think these are good ones.

Great deal

Newegg is outta stock but its a better deal than mine.

Never heard of a monitors with a 1ms response time. Interesting. Thanks!

Edit - how about this?

Don't you get it? The response times ARE A LIE.

NO panel REALLY reaches 2ms. TN panels have 2ms while switching from a shade of gray to another. That doesn't matter. What matters is something larger, like a color to another or black to white or reverse. TN panels might have like 10-20ms response times depending on the quality. On mine, it's like 20ms, since I have some noticiable ghosting.

IPS panels have like 16-23 or something...


Response time has nothing to do in how responsive the screen is. It tells you how much ghosting you'll get, but the numbers are usually lies. 60hz panels refresh the screen every 16ms, so that doesn't affect responsiveness at all. 120hz panels refresh every 8ms, NOW it might affect a little, but not much...



If you want quality, go with an IPS panel.

If you want cheap, go with a TN panel

If you want gaming, go with a CRT capable of AT LEAST 1280x1024 @ 85hz... The higher the resolution and refresh rate, the better. However, if this is not your preference, 120hz displays might also do well. Although those are expensive. Hmm...


Frankly no LCD should be inherently BAD for gaming. Just let these guys recommend stuff to you, but don't buy into marketing.

The following numbers are ALWAYS LIES.

I told you which category of monitor is best for each use

IPS has the best colors but the most ghosting
TN panels have crap colors and are cheap, not as much ghosting as IPS

And CRT's are good but take up space and unless you know about them, you will choose a crap one.


I can't recommend you a specific monitor since I know nothing about the selection in finland, or the prices....

What resolution are you aiming at? What about the refresh rate? What kinds of games do you play?

Dirt 3, probably trackmania for fun and some online games. How about recommending 1 from each category?
