Best IPS Monitor For Gaming
What's the best IPS (or even TN) monitor for gaming?
My budget is $400, and I'm looking for 23"-24" size. Please don't recommend dell U2311H. I've had 4 of them, and all of them were garbage (tinting, bleeding, ghosting issues). :sad:
If you're ok with used, try to find someone's second hand Dell 2209WA. IMO best monitor for gaming at the moment...
1680x1050, IPS, you can force it to 75 Hz.
Great colour, speed, low enough resolution so any mid range card can max out on it.
+1 on the U2410.
Regardless of your issues with the other Dell's, they tend to have the best monitors for the best prices on the market. I would look for a good Dell IPS in the size/price of your chosing.
As an aside; the 2209wa is practically a cult icon of the monitor world. When it first came out, it could be had for less then the cost of most other TN monitors, with an IPS panel. You could hardly do wrong by finding two used ones and purchasing them for under your $400 price...
I love my Dell U2311H.. they are great monitor. I have 3 for gaming.
Moving from a Samsung TN panel to a 2209WA was the best long-term computer purchase I've ever made, with the exception of a particular Logitech mouse that I've had almost since wireless mice first hit the mainstream market. Highly recommended, and they tend to have a great return policy, if you do get a dud.
I miss it :biggrin:
I saw your post on Overclock.net - Overclocking.net and thankfully since the two trolls there (Senna89 and Hydros/oled) aren't here I can recommend the Dell U2412M as a solid choice.
It is basically the new 24" version of the 2209WA (which I used to have and still adore) without the ability to go 75hz, which is unheard of at 1920x1200 anyways. Pixel responsiveness is good and input lag is as low as the 2209WA.
Also, since it's LED back-lit it comes to full brightness within a minute or two and uses very little power. It also has four USB ports, but no card reader. It usually runs between $349.99 and $399.99 Canadian, and a bit less in the U.S.
Here is my initial quickie review over on [H]ardforum [H]ard|Forum - View Single Post - Dell U2412M
and the input lag test I did: [H]ard|Forum - View Single Post - Dell U2412M with some rambling about it basically having zero lag (like the 2209WA)
I did some more gaming on it last night. I played the Witcher (original version) and did a lot of camera spins and pans to see if I could detect ghosting/reverse ghosting and I couldn't see any.
Another potential option is the new PLS panel from Samsung, the S24A850DW but it seems to be running in the mid $400.00 range in the U.S. so it may be a bit out of your budget. PLS is basically Samsung's take on IPS. Unfortunately there haven't been any shipped yet so quality is unknown.
I know I love my U2410 for everything... I don't quite know how the U2412M compares, but I assume that for gaming it is good, even tho it is not supposed to be as good as the U2410 for all around purpose.
