Looking for an IPS-panel gaming monitor

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Its been 4-5 years since I brought my NEC Multisync 20WGX2, and I think its just time for an upgrade.

I've been looking for some possible replacements and I've seen some models, but not many have subject-able reviews.

Here are some monitors that I've taken an interest to:

HP ZR24w (Alot of people like this, except for the brightness)

Dell UltraSharp U2410 (Alot of people like this as well, but this is just within my budget limit)

ViewSonic VP2365WB (I haven't taken any close looks at Viewsonic in the past, and I don't know if I should start)

NEC EA231WMi-BK (Its NEC, and its a good value eIPS panel monitor)

LG E2370V (Very intriguing, featuring IPS and LED backlight together. Its a new release that doesn't have the Display Port feature and LG isn't really known for quality-- )

NEC LCD24WMGX3 (It was the newer model to my old NEC 20WGX2, but it hasn't been released in the US..)

If you guys could help narrow this list down, it will be much appreciated, as well as introducing some other models as well.

I game most of the time, but any reasonable response times from 15ms or lower will work just fine. I heard some Dells have backlight bleeding, which makes me hesitant to shell out 500-600 dollars on the Dell U2410.

Thanks

So I have no experience with any of them nor the luxury of even using an IPS / PVA / I-PVA monitor but having said all that I can tell you that the Dell U2410's are in high regard, not just here on OCN, but everywhere.

My vote to the U2410. Monitors are something you don't normally change often, and you don't want to buy something and have it suck. So, spend near the top of your budget and don't look back.

The U3011 I've used was amazing color quality, and I expect no less for its younger brother.

Go with the Ultrasharp! My U2711 will be in tomorrow.

If you're looking for a gaming monitor then an ips panel might not be as good as an 120hz monitor.

The U2410 gets my vote as well...It is the best monitor I have ever had hands down...You won't be disappointed with it...I had zero buyers remorse once I got it.

the HP ZR24W..the U2410 just isn't worth it for the price..it is an overpriced IPS.
