Anyone play FPS on IPS monitors? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
The U2410 (in gamer mode) and U2311H have especially low input lag according to TFT Central. Having actually played on a U2311H, I couldn't tell a difference in response between it and my older TN panels.

Still, high end TN panels will always have the edge in this regard as they don't have nearly as much internal processing going on behind the scenes to render images. If competitive gaming is your sole concern, VA and IPS panels aren't ideal.

*reads script*

No, my IPS isn't in any way worse than a crappy TN.

Yes, I would prefer to play FPS games on even if cost twice as much.

I'm playing on HP ZR30W. Very low input lag thanks to the lack of scaler. Quite a fast matrix. Really enjoyable.
IPS is fine to game on. Just pick a proper monitor.

I have a couple of U2311H's and plan on getting a 3rd for Eyefinity soon. I don't notice any input lag in any games, whatsoever. I've played L4D and currently play BF:BC2 on it. The first time I gamed on it, the color and clarity difference from my old Acer 22" TN seriously blew me away. Sun shafts and lighting effects look especially good on the Dell.

The U2311H is probably the best bang for buck monitor on the market if you can snag one for less than $250. I got my first one for $258 and second one for $212, both brand new from Dell. I'm just waiting on another sale now.

There will be lag, but most people will not notice it. I notice it though, I lag about 2-3 frames behind everyone else. I can tell a big difference with 120Hz monitor over a an IPS 60Hz panel. Even with overdrive on my monitor I can still tell it lags a bit behind as my shots and recoils takes a little bit longer for me to see. I shoot way better with 120Hz because I can actually see my recoil better and time my shots at better intervals.

As for the number of FPS games I've played, far far too many. Probably can't name every FPS I've played. First FPS I ever played was Doom and then followed by Hexen LOL, yeah old right?

Current game I'm still playing is BC2 with 851 hours logged, probably more realistically closer to 900 hours as I used EA DM to play for a while until I got my Steam install fixed. But if you play competitively or even close to professionally then you'd no doubt want the 120Hz over an IPS. If I was to play competitively in a professional league I'd choose the 120Hz everytime. I do a lot better with 120Hz TN than IPS though.

I can't aim for crap with IPS in CSS/DODS and most source games though. But when I swap to 120Hz TN I do a lot better. I use the Viewsonic VX2265W monitor.

If comptetitive gaming is your PRIMARY concern, then forget any and all LCDs and get a good CRT. They have zero input lag, zero ghosting, >120Hz refresh rates, color accuracy better than most IPS panels, and you can run at any resolution you want to improve performance without it suffering from scaling effects. I suggest a GDM-FW900.

If you're going to stick with LCDs, then you may as well get an IPS panel. The much better picture more than outweighs the 5% higher response time. Input lag has nothing to do with a monitor being IPS or TN, that is ENTIRELY dependent on the circuitry driving it.

You're right about the advantages of CRTs, and you're right about input lag.

But you're definitely wrong about color accuracy. I notice a better picture on a TN panel than I do my one CRT.

Then your CRT must not be calibrated very well, because CRTs theoretically have much better colour accuracy than any LCD panels, especially TN ones.

'Better picture' =/= more accurate colours. Often very accurate colours produce what looks like a less interesting image, as it's not necessarily as vibrant as a wide gamut or highly saturated LCD panel, but they are definitely more accurate

And to the OP, I don't notice any input lag on my U2311h. It is one of the fastest IPS panels available, and is really very good for the price. I think only if you're a very serious gamer will you notice or care about any lag present, and also have been recently playing on a 120Hz TN or CRT screen, as if you've been playing with only normal TN panels as your comparison you're unlikely to notice a difference

Well, a crappy LCD is better than a crappy CRT. I won't argue that. Crappy CRTs are plagued with tons of problems, especially flickering.

But if you're talking about a good CRT (read: Sony Artisan series, or the best NEC Diamondtrons), you can only compare the best IPS panels to them. TN panels, and even eIPS ones like the U2311, don't stand a chance.

That being said, most LCDs are still brighter because they can use as bright of a backlight as they want. So if you've got bright lights in the room then yeah the LCD will look better, because the CRT will be kind of faded in comparison. But if you turn off all the lights and allow your eyes to adjust to the CRT, it ends up looking just as vivid as any LCD on the market today.

But as far as actual accuracy goes - as in, what the computer wants to display vs the color that actually comes out of the screen - even cheap CRTs beat most LCDs at that.

Don't forget the IPS236V from LG. Same panel as the U2311h and $260 if you can find it. Cheapest on the u2311h is 280 right now because dell does not have an active ebay listing (they usually sell them for 250 new).
