Yes actually. The Best Buys in my area sell iMacs and Apple Cinema Displays, both of which use IPS screens. The 27" iMac actually uses the same screen as the U2711.

Of course they have a ton of 120Hz LCD TVs too, for comparison.

That's interpolated 120Hz, so it's basically just displaying the same 60Hz image twice, not two different ones. The TVs themselves don't accept a true 120Hz input, rendering them a very bad example of what a true 120Hz monitor looks like.

True.

I would disagree with this however. Interpolated screens still display 120 fps, just through artificial means. This is necessary for films and media, shot under 30fps, to actually benefit from the enhanced refresh rate. Still, the end result is not visibly much different than a "true" 120hz screen. Granted, you wouldn't want an interpolated screen for gaming, but that's a different argument altogether.

This is just to give him a point of reference, much like viewing an uncalibrated iMac screen. Are they perfect examples? No. But I know I'd rather see both in person before dumping ~300 on a monitor.

I have both an AW2310 and an u2410. The AW2310 is in the box sitting my room, and I really do not know what I am going to do with it. Too late to return it, too lazy to sell it.

The main reason why is because 23" 16:9 is too small for me. I assume 3D gaming is not a factor for you either?


The u2410's input lag isn't all that bad, but I personally can notice the difference of input lag between the 2 and the AW2310 is more responsive especially with 120hz. At the end of the day though, think about it, you have had a 60hz panel for quite a long time, I am sure you could go a longer time with some more 60hz love. Especially when you have a monitor that will present superior image quality(in terms of color accuracy, better brightness/contrast and viewing angles) no matter what you are doing; watching a movie, playing a video game or browsing web sites.

the u2311 is supposed to have even better input lag than the u2410 as well.

Now, if you're looking for IQ and absolute 0 input - GO CRT. If it weren't for the weight and size of it, I seriously would be boxing up the u2410 and have my FW900 on my desk. But it is literally 2 feet deep and 100 pounds, not enough room for it on my desk and my desk probably couldn't support the weight.

You and me both . I still have a like new (few usage hours) FW900, locked away in an Anvil case in the basement. I had 5 of them at one point (yes my desk fits them), but the house I'm living in now has some sort of electrical interference in the computer room that causes CRT images to jiggle, so I sold off all but that one. I'm saving it for when I move again

It's a shame that CRTs are difficult to get your hands on.

I still got 2 crts. I notice the lag input of monitors im heavy into driving and flying and fps. all require low input , i held onto crt till 1 1/2 years go and i bought a 28 inch led. It was ok, i could see the input delay allays shooting behind ppl in bf2. then i turn off v-scyn and it was tearing bad. got my 1st 120hz monitor off here. and i was shocked after 1st 2 rounds in bf2 my kdr was 10-1. the 120hz monitor are for ppl that can tell. i can tell 70hz to 90hz. I like fps over 90. anything less i can see images stand still. I wont go back to 70hz and lower. But i been a long time gamer and nick-pick everything to each its own, i got a plasma tv here hooked to ps3/pc if i want to watch a movie on bed.

Definitely a sad, sad day when I saw your FW900s off of your desk . Your IPS is beautiful, and that like-new FW900 of yours that you have socked away will be worth a fortune come a few years time and at the same time priceless to you once they become even rarer than they are now.

and take up 4 desks worth of space LOL

I used an old NEC CRT when i played CS 1.6 heavy back in like 2002-2004 and I had to legit pull my desk a foot off the wall to make it fit and still have enough space for my keyboard. Never doing that again.

IPS may look great, but if you haven't actually tried a true 120hz monitor and your trying to make a decision your selling yourself short imo. If image quality and perfect colors are more important to your than pretty good picture quality and slightly over saturated colors + amazing game play, then i guess go IPS.

Getting a 60hz TN panel these days seems for budget only.
