My 24" struggle!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 33
For your budget, you could get pretty much afford any 27" TN panel, or up to 24" IPS. Basically you will have to decide which you prefer. The 27" TN will be cheaper however and you could spend the extra cash on something else.

I used to really like Samsung, but recently I got 3 Dell U2211Hs and a ST2420L, been very impressed by them for its price. I got the U series (IPS Panel) ones @ $199 each and the ST one (TN Panel, LED Backlit) @ $185. You might not have to spend up to 400 pounds on this at all.

I'd say go with either the Dell U2311H or a PVA panel like the Samsung F2380 (VA panels are generally cheaper so you could go higher)

IPS panels will give you good viewing angles, but *VA panels have better blacks, which would help when you're watching movies.

I got the Samsung T260HD. 1080P, great picture and is a tv (internal tuner) so if one day i get a better monitor i still can use it as a flat screen tv in a spare bedroom or something. The only thing that it is missing is pic in pic so i can watch tv while surfing the web. But mine is a couple years old so the newer ones might have something like that by now.

+1 VA panels will produce better blacks.

ok i pulled this post from another "older: thread but its my post so you cant say imma stealing information lol also its not 100% towards the OP but its good information on the u2410

Quote:
just get a u2410 and then use your old monitor as a 2nd monitor to hold all your apps. i got my U2410 as my main and on my 2nd monitor i got my media player and steam freinds as well as other programs i like to see at any given time

also for your list

*High Quality
- U2410 if top of the line. wont get any better unless you go bigger

*At least 23" (27" would be awesome)
-U2410 is a nice 24inch monitor with lots of awesome features

*LED preferred (unless I am mistaken these have a great picture and contrast)
-the U2410 is an ISP monitor and you wont get any better panel and it looks awesome in games and movies it also has "Vibrant, Accurate Color: PremierColor technology delivers color depth of 1.07 billion and 110% color gamut (typical)" (taken from dells site)

*2 ms response rate (I assume this is necessary given I play games like COD)
-the U2410 has 6ms response rate but realistically anything under 8ms is fine. i also play fast paced games like COD i also play BC2 and other FPS games and most of them are hardcore fast play style and also racing games and i have never experienced ghosting on my U2410

*HDMI and DVI hookups (Will eventually get a new graphics card that supports HDMI)
-well you get these hookups : X1 VGA (cable hooked up to monitor by default) X2 DVI-D (comes with one DVI-D cable) X1 DisplayPort (comes with DP Cable) X1 Component X1 Composite and X1 HDMI it also has a Built-in Media Card Reader and USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub (with 1 USB upstream port and 4 USB downstream ports)

*Full HD
- Full HD is 1920X1080 well the U2410 is 1920X1200 so its 16:10 and its NICE i love it

*One thing that concerns me is aspect ratio as I am not sure which would be better 16:9 or 16:10.
-when it comes down to it, it is all up to you. with 16:9 you get small if none at all black bars watching movies and with 16:10 you get larger black bars but they are ok cause the monitor size makes up for that Also i find with 16:10 i get more screen space well playing games and makes it easier to find the enemy and kill them

The only downfall of the U2410 is the price right now its $599 so its pushing your limit on your price but you wont find anything better just ask any U2410 user. if your willing to i bet you could also find a new U2410 on ebay for a good price or a use/refurb one but still would be an awesome monitor for you to use

Also if your doing web and graphic design you probably want accurate colors and the U2410 is WAY better then any TN panel you will find. another cool thing about the U2410 is it had Picture in Picture so you could watch T.V and still work on the same monitor. i find PIP handy for watching a movie or playing a game on my Xbox well im updating something or doing multiple reboots on my PC

Hope i have help in making a choice on monitors for you

EDIT:

Quote:
IPS vs TN is supposed to have better color reproduction and off angle viewing, but how noticeable is the difference between these two monitors for instance?
YES the difference is NIGHT AND DAY i got my old PG221 sitting next my my ISP U2410 and its 100% different also my PG221 already has good colors but my U2410 BLOWS it away and i have not calibrated it yet as i dont got the tools but even on stock setting anyone of my freinds and family that have seen them sitting next to each other always say the U2410 looks TONS better in color reproduction
i pulled this from this thread if you wanna read it over

I checked out the samsung, and read a review...
not sure im allowed to put links to reviews on here, but here goes anyway...check this out.. according to the review site, they say stay clear of the f2380 for movies and games :S
and my issue with the dell is that i NEED a HDMI connection!!
