Is an IPS monitor worth it over a TN? - Page 7

I used the roughly 30FPS as that is when motion on a screen generally become fluid to an accepable level(varies from person to person obviously)(probably closer to 24 FPS and then we can get into the triple frame to reduce the black flicker :-p). You are correct in that the FPS of an eye is not fixed and I should have worded the statement differently.
1: There is NO motion blur on CRT monitors. Every step up in Hz on my CRT produces a more fluid image in game


Go ahead and limit yourself to 30FPS in quake live. You're gonna see it lag. Let's just see. TRY IT. Then limit it to 60FPS. It now lags less but lag is still visible. Now 120FPS. Near being perfect. 160FPS. PERFECT

The smoothness isn't because the lack of motion blur. It's the high FPS that you are able to see on 120hz.

PS: No LCD monitor can do 120hz in every scenario. Actual response times (not advertised) are too high to allow actual 120hz. On some transitions (not most), the monitor is incapable of 120hz.


2: The eye has no FPS. You say it doesn't have a fixed FPS. Yeah, but it has no kind of FPS, not even a fluctuating one.


3: We might have a misunderstanding here. 40FPS is reasonable. It can produce an acceptable image, and an acceptable smoothness for gameplay. However, that doesn't mean that it's the smoothest image there is. I would NEVER play COD, TF2, quake, unreal, or any of those sorts on 40FPS. It's pure torture (40FPS on low dips in TF2) All these games require a smooth image and acceptable isn't enough. Any single player game is fine with 40FPS though. Acceptable smoothness =/= smoothest there is



Trust me, people can see up to 160FPS in games. In movies maybe up to 100, because they have motion blur, but too bad there isn't any movies above 60FPS, and those are soap operas, 24FPS on any good movie.


PS: I'm the guy who doesn't watch movies because they look so laggy. Cause me headaches.

You can get a brand new U2311H on sale for that price every so often, so I would wait for sales if you can. If not, buy that refurb now . It's worth it.

For what it's worth, my monitor came looking like new. No defects on the monitor, the packaging was indistinguishable from a new package. The only thing that gave it away really was that my monitor was the older A01 revision instead of the newer A02.

Unless you go 2560x1440/1600, it isn't worth it to go bigger.

I'd rather take two 21.5" 1920x1080 monitors than a 25-28" 1920x1200 monitor. Even if they were both the same panel quality.

I have been doing a lot of research and reading on this forum and others trying to decide whether or not to ditch my S-PVA in favor of an IPS, and the conclusion I have come to is that it is not worth it in my case. For what it's worth.

I'd second this. It's hard to put into words, but at 25"+, anything under 2560x1440 felt wrong. It's very hard to describe the feeling I got, but it just felt extremely uncomfortable to look at.

Go for IPS, like every OCN member that posted topic between IPS and NT. And don't be surprised when we show a better room setup.

Yeah, but the same effect is visible in 24" displays @ 1920x????

It's all about what you are used to


For example, I have been using this 20" 4:3 2048x1536 monitor for the last few days as my main monitor. Now I don't even bother to do anything on my side monitors (more than putting a youtube video there while I browse on this monitor) because they look so ugly and unfocused and constrained. This CRT feels so much more right than the larger LCD displays that have a lower resolution

U2311H is a sweet screen for around 200. The LG IPS LED is pretty impressive from what I have researched. You can't go wrong with both.
