Looking for: MMO Gaming Monitor 23"-24"

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I'm really new on this, and I've never been looking for info when I bought my display months ago.

I bought this one: http://bebefore.com/acer-p243w/

Now, reading all forums, I saw that maybe an IPS monitor will fit better.

I saw this one and found it interesting: http://accessories.dell.com/sna/products/Displays/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=320-9270

The main difference is that the ACER has 2ms and the Dell has 8ms, wich is really high in comparison.

Will I "drag down" if I get the DELL? Are there any other interesting/better displays? There are tons of oppinions, but I didn't see any talking about MMO exclusively, so yeah!

Thanks! If there's another post talking about this, please link it, I'd appreciate any answer!

The 2ms response times advertisement is a LIE. They are measured on gray to gray transitions which has no effect on how they perform in real life. Even a TN panel (which have fast transitions) would take like 10ms minimum to do the transition from black to white.

I see... so the 2ms is a lie! I heard stuff like that before buying it.

That U2311H will be awesome. You should get it instead of the acer.

I've got three asus 25.5" TN panel monitors running at 1920x1200 each, and I love them to death. For an MMO, you want high resolution, so definitely go for 1920x1200 or higher, so you can get more addons on your screen or just enjoy more of the game. Resolution is what determines how much fits on the screen, not actual screen size. But hey, I like screen size too, that's why I went with such a large size tongue.gif

Yeah, size seems important in MMO's! =P

I'll finally get this one: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06a/382087-382087-64283-72270-3884471-4101131.html

The quality and price seems great enough I guess, don't know if there's something better.
Thanks for all the answers!

Don't forget abut glossy vs matte surface coatings. Unless you have seen the monitor in person, I wouldn't purchase one with a glossy coating. There is way to much reflection and glare picked up by the screen.

As far as IPS vs TN, color reproduction and viewing angles are better on IPS but you most likely won't notice the difference in gamings situations. The color reproduction seems to come into play with photo editing or similar, and the viewing angles are only going to matter to someone looking over your shoulder or if you try to watch a movie from an odd angle/distance.
