Rate my new monitor out of 10? - Page 3

post #21 of 56
lol @ all the inknowledgeable people commenting on the response time

Of course it has a high response time if it's pva. If your monitor is 2ms or 5ms, it's most likely a TN panel, which means that it sucks for image quality. After looking at an IPS panel, TN panel is like acid being thrown into your eyes.. Sorry people. Advertising got to you...

I would yes.



It may ghost a little. It may not look the best. But dam. It WORKS. And at a resolution of 1600x1200, it'd be nice for desktop usage.

I'd pay 60€ for a monitor like that. 60£? I'd think about it.

People just don't get that the response time has absolutely no significance. Sure, TN panels that are advertised as 2ms may ghost less than IPS panels but it doesn't mean anything the number itself. My main monitor is 2ms (Measured with Gray to Gray) and has 2 frames of ghosting. My secondary is advertised as 16ms (Method unkown) but it doesn't have any ghosting that I can see.. It's the panel itself that you should be worried about, not the false numbers.

Your panel is probably a little ghosty, but if you can't see it easily in games, it should be good.

IMO, that monitor is definitely worth 40£, not sure about 60. Heck, if you ever decide to upgrade, it'd make for a great secondary.

Thank you sir, +REP I am currently running it along side my 17" LCD (Samotron 72v).
I cannot see any ghosting as far as im aware, but hey, only £20 off thats nothing really. gaming is just fine on this monitor. you're right, this monitor is great for desktop usage . it also came with a custom stand (Quadvision)

A product is worth what you're willing to pay. I don't think I've ever had an IPS panel so I can't comment. Ze-Dant sounds like he knows what he's talking about.

I done some some research on them PVA panel LCD's and all I can say that is my monitor looks about 2943274892648639745923582x better, the response time may not be top notch, but its perfect for me, I love the resolution, I love the gaming quality, I love how big it is, its also very perfect for OCN.

I agree! One Ze-Dant brought some much needed facts to the thread and anything car, pc, tv, monitor, etc. is only worth what the buyer thinks it is worth. I wouldn't sweat it once you get ready for a new monitor you will investigate deals more and find something awesome!

People keep mispelling my name.


Anywho.. All I said was that the big issue with PVA is the ghosting. If he doesn't notice it, it doesn't matter. All the 2ms and such numbers are just basically marketing that doesn't matter in the real world. All 2ms panels are crappy TN panels. I'd rather take the monitor the OP has than a TN with the same resolution and a 2ms response time. PVA looks better than TN usually

That's it. It all comes down to personal value. I'd pay for that one. But someone with a dell U3011 might not.

Some people are ignorant and only care about the marketed specs. They should not. The monitor the OP has is fine TYVM..

PVA panel makes it well worth 60 Pounds. It should have good, if not great, image reproduction, accurate colors, and viewing angles.

Not all TN panels are junk, though. The one in my HP w2207 is amongst the best and has very good viewing angles and color reproduction (as long as you calibrate it), as well as good contrast.
