looking for good 1920x1200 monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
so after seeing my friend's 16:10 res monitor I want one now. I'm looking for a 1920x1200 monitor with good response time, preferably around 27'

want to spend around $300 willing to go to $350 though.

thanks.

edit: how's this monitor look? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254052

and is there any gaming difference in 3ms vs 2 or 1ms?

The "5ms!!!" or "2ms!!!" market is full of crap

The numbers don't mean ANYTHING. The only thing that they relate to is how much ghosting the monitor has, and even that doesn't hold any value, since the numbers were from gray to gray transitions with pixels, not color to color.. Pretty much an advertising trick.
Example: My 16ms monitor has no ghosting but my 2ms one has lots.

That monitor looks okay, but by decreasing the resolution to 1920x1080, you could get so much more. IPS panels make TN panels look like crap, and are available for that price at 1920x1080. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=dell%20u2211h

Or you could sell your old monitor and get the best of both worlds

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=hp%20zr24w (the colors on this one will be inferior to the dell one though, but calibrating both goes a long way towards better colors)

Though, you could just go with a TN panel if you want size over quality...

In the end, it's your decision. A much larger Size, or very good colors?

Your choice. Neither will be inherently bad tho. Think about it, and ask for further advice here from other guys, since now I gotta go for the next 14 hours...
