Best 23-24" Monitor for $350 or less - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Since you said your main use for this monitor is going to be gaming, with a secondary use of browsing webpages and the normal stuff, I would suggest getting a good TN panel.

If you need it to do professional graphic/photo/video work where you absolutely need 100% color accuracy and reproduction as your job depends on it, I would go an IPS panel such as the Dell monitors that other users posted.

TN will have a faster refresh rate and IPS monitors have more correct color reproduction and better viewing angles, but they come with a price premium.

If interested in a nice TN panel - I would go with the ASUS VE276Q 27" 1920x1080 LCD monitor for about $300. I have 3 in eyefinity as I primarily game with my system and do absolutely no work in the video/photo/design fields.

The main thing that I was debating was either a 120hz monitor or an IPS. Even though that looks like a good monitor it doesn't have either. I've weighed both sides and the thing is even though my primary use will be gaming, I think I will enjoy the more accurate color and vibrancy that the IPS offers over a TN, even a 120hz TN. Now the next thing that many then will debate will be input lag and ghosting. With the e-IPS that the Dell panel offers, it's almost like a "best of both worlds" monitor. It will have great color reproduction and next to negligible input lag. I highly doubt that I will notice anything, but what I will notice is accurate color that it reproduces. When I receive it and for some odd reason I notice ghosting, I will simply return it and go with the 120hz. I have been searching and searching on-end for anyone, anywhere saying that they can see ghosting in the Dell IPS monitor, and I have found the quite opposite. Everyone has reported no noticeable ghosting when playing FPS, etc. The monitor you posted is nice and it has size, but less quality in terms of an IPS. So the size of that monitor will just make it more apparent imo.

You're building a 1366 rig now? Don't like SB? Don't want to wait for 2011 socket?

Everyone just recommends what they like or have bought for themselves.
I have seen various 120Hz panels along side one another and also alongside IPS 120Hz monitors showing HD content and there is hardly any difference.

Other factors are more important.

I would be more concerned about the actual quality of the panel, response time, native contrast, (Dynamic Contrast means nothing) a monitor that runs 1200P (16:10 I think), available brightness levels (usually 450 cd/m2 or better) and 14bit+ color.

Toshiba did once make a 120hz hips. I posted it in the news section last year but the thing about that was it was small gay resolution and interpolated 120hz not true. So that is a really overpriced $1500 pos.
