Gaming 1920x1200 vs 1920x1080..? (Want to buy: HP LP2475w)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've had my mind set on 1920x1200, but possibly considering 1920x1080.

I look at those 2 resolutions, and I want 1920x1200, since it gives me more vertical real estate. But then I go to shop for one of these, and I notice there are ten times more 1920x1080 monitors than there are 1900x1200 monitors.

I really want a 1920x1200 (16:10) monitor though.

* * *

I seen the HP LP2475w 1920x1200 Black 24" 6 ms (GTG); 12ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 400 cd/m2 1000:1 which caught my eye.

It's gives me 1920x1200 at 24" and 12ms (6ms GTG[Grey to Grey])

How is that response time? Is 6ms (12ms GTG) usable for gaming? From the reviews, it seems like this monitor has amazingly accurate color management since it has an IPS Panel, making it awesome for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, which I use regularly (My job involves designing graphics for print). I'm concerned about gaming though. How would this monitor perform with games?

I'm currently playing WorldOfWarcraft, NBA2k11, Fallout3, GTA4, Crysis2, and a couple others.

This looks like the best 1920x1200 monitor for the price.

What do you think?

16:9 and 1080p are just becoming mainstream because its "Full HD" I've always liked 16:10 more because its a lot better for reading. The whole full HD thing is more for entertainment such as games and movies.

12ms is a little slow, I don't really see the difference but I've only owned 5ms and 2ms screens.

Heres another monitor to consider:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-9270

I picked the 23 inch one because the 24 inch version is a lot more expensive for about the same stuff.

Note that the 23 inch is 1080p and the 24 inch is 1920 x 1200.

I would definatly go with the 1920x1200 monitor, it looks alot better than a monitor at 1920x1200.

Ms doesn't matter diddly squat. ~8ms is preferred but anything more isn't going to change the way you play or have an adverse affect on your experience. That particular monitor is very nice, you should buy it and continue the path of IPS panels.

Pretty much this, unless you plan on doing designing, reading, writing documents, excel, etc. 1080p would be better.

This is from a user who had 1920x1200 and switched down. I get much better picture with my consoles hooked up to my monitor, and movies are much more enjoyable without the bars.

Why would you make a resolution comparison using a clearly low res photo in #2?

Personally I don't see how 11% more pixel real estate as well as having mainstream 1080p media complete with black bars are worth the huge hike in price.
