Basically the topic. I just need a good IPS panel that will be suitable for gaming. Preferably one that costs less than 350$.. smile.gif

Because you need an admin to do it. Pm an admin. If you want a good IPS, check out dell's ultrasharp series. One that seems to be popular is the u2311h.

I was looking at the Ultrasharps, both the Asus ML249H (which is an MVA panel) and the LG E2370V-BF (which is e-IPS), but I kind of want to keep it under $350. I've heard that response time is atrocious on the Asus because it uses the same panel as a Benq BL2400PT; that's a huge problem for me because I'm an avid gamer. I'm kind of scared to take a risk on the LG because I don't really know much about it, outside of the fact that it uses the same panel as the U2311.

I'm not dead set on either of those panels though - any panel under $350 will do, so if any of you have a suggestion feel free to chime in.


Thanks in advance guys.

also I hate my monitor(mine is the washed out mess on the left)

Why would you really need an IPS for gaming anyways? Just curious.

Anyways, try to get a Dell Ultrasharp

No reason really, but they do look good. Playing JC2 at the moment and I tend to get distracted by the scenery sometimes. Watching one sunset caused me to crash my plane into a mountain. cool.gif

Seconded, or thirded...

Love my 2311h, it is a good size for me (I personally don't like huge screens), no noticeable motion blur or ghosting and the colours are amazing.

The only problem I have with it is a slight purple tint in the bottom corners when showing a black screen. It is not really noticeable under normal use though, and might be fixable with a good calibration (which I am too lazy to do).

OP, check out TFT Central for some good reviews if you haven't already.

Oh, uh... I'm going to sound like a complete noob but, I heard they were the best. Like I said though I'm not dead set on any one panel, though I would prefer something other than TN.

Also, Apparently the Asus ML249H has an 8ms response time. Would I notice anymore ghosting on that panel than my current 5ms panel? It may sound stupid but 3ms doesn't sound like a lot.

U2311H is the commonly nominated e-IPS panel for gamers.

I have one, great monitor for the price. Has a bit of green tint and backlight bleed, but the quality of the colors greatly outperforms a TN.

Would the E2370 be comparable then since it uses the same panel?

Also, How much ghosting is there on the Dell?

I'm not the best to ask on monitors, however, if it is in fact the same panel then you should be able to expect the same quality.

The thing which drew me to buy from dell is their warranty. If there's anything wrong with it they'll cross ship you a brand new one on their dime. If you're considering buying from newegg, you can only RMA a monitor for specific reasons and may end up paying shipping.

I got myself a 30" IPS panel, and within a week went back to my older TN 24" display.

Don't get fooled by the whole 30" IPS debate.

What you won't hear is:

1.) getting the 30" caused my performance to suffer, higher resolution and all.

2.) After gaming over an hour I was getting bad eye strain and fatigue. It's just too big and bright, even after toning down the brightness (gets too dark). I couldn't care less about colour reproduction if I'm hurting.

3.) The purple that appears when black colours are displayed.

4.) Startup, monitor needs to warmup for like 10 minutes before it starts going. In that time lines appear and other distortions.

4.) Did I say it hurt when gaming over an hour


IPS suck for gaming in my book, period.

Stick to TN.

And this is from first hand experience.
Shhh!
