Need Recommendation IPS 23"-27" Gaming $350

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I need some recommendations for an IPS 23"-27" monitor that is good for gaming(fast enough response times). My maximum budget it $350, but i would prefer to only spend $300. The only monitor i know that someone will say something about it the Dell U2311H.

Edit: No crappy stands please.

I love my 2311h, I have had absolutely no motion blur with any shooters like Metro 2033, BioShock, etc. The Build and color quality just blow me away compared side by side to my tn panel. The only thing is my TN is glossy, so colors pop more, but my 2311 has much more accurate reproduction and contrast. The only thing I wish I could get rid of easily would be the excessive Anti Glare coating. Its not too bad, but its noticeable, especially next to a Glossy Panel.

From past experience, i hate glossy screens. Especially when I'm watching a video or playing a game and i see my reflection. And how could there be excessive anti-glare?

Any other IPS monitor recommendations, as well as any links to were i can get them cheap would be appreciated.

Didn't I say IPS? I already have a TN panel and the viewing angles are horrible.

Another vote for the U2311H. Amazing IPS monitor for the price. Money that you will save in buying the 2311 put it towards a good SSD for your system(If you want to spend the full $350). That's my advice.

Yes, that is a good advice.

...or wait, save some money and buy the 27 inch IPS LG E2770V for $400!

An LED backlit (which is terrible) TN panel. Something tells me this is not at all what he is looking for...
