  • help deciding on new 24" monitor

    Hi there,

    i'm looking to get a new 24" monitor for charts & casual gaming.

    1080p is enough resolution for me

    Any good models out there? i hear IPS technology is the way to go even though its more expensive.

    i budgeting $200-$300

    any suggestions?

    if you care about gaming and play FPS games then i cannot write in words how much more fluid it is playing on a dedicated gaming monitor like
    http://uk.pcmag.com/asus-vg248qe/479...w/asus-vg248qe


    personaly have and use asus monitors and rate them well, i finally got fed up playing my custom gaming rig on big tv's, even with fast pixel refresh rate i still find myself wanting to site right infront of the whole 42", im lived half my awake life glued 15" from a screen, thus what got me back on a desk with a 24" gaming monitor, you could spend alot more, but i dont see the need,

    ill find you a USA link,
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236313

    and i wouldn't just take someones word, have a look around, but first classify if you really need a gaming monitor or not you could save some pennies!

    here is a good resource for info

    i haven't looked into IPS much, so cannot comment there

          About $450 each, but they're curved so I paid a fair bit extra.

            I can recomend Eizo FS2434-BK. Perfect for charts & casual gaming. You can connect 2 or 3 because of 2mm frame. Not too expensive.

                  Dell U2412M and Asus PA248Q are both very good models that is ideal for your charts and casual gaming purpose.

                  And yes you are right. IPS panels makes a better colored and visual screen for near perfect images. Due to their very good color reproduction abilities.

                  Both of the models I mentioned above are also within your 200 to $300 budget.

                  You can checkout cnets best monitors list here. Or see this list of the best photo editing pc monitors for more ideas.

                    Hi, thanks for your input. I've since bought a dell u2414h monitor first, it was ips & yes the colours and image were great but the ips glow in dark images was a real annoyance for me, I just couldn't get used to it so I sent it back and got a benq BenQ EW2750ZL LED 27" VA panel instead. it's not perfect, there is a little ghosting in fast moving gaming but blacks are black.

                      Well, for gaming monitors I sure as hell recommend the Acer Predator XB271HU. I have brought it and I think it's the best gaming monitor out there right now. http://www.144hzmonitors.com/gaming-...uide-may-2016/

                        You know what they say. The more monitors you have the more profitable you are :-)

                          Recently bought a U2412M and its not great for gaming, its average at best. Lost of ghosting when things move quick, like on GTA 5.

                          Currently looking at the Asus VG248QE considered on of the best gaming monitors http://www.esportsource.net/best-gam...gaming-monitor

                            I'm using dual LG IPS LED monitors and they work great for me.

                              Unfortunately, I don't think that you can find a good monitor with a price $200-300.
                              Personally I use Dell UltraSharp U2715H 27" . Realy great purchase for $400. A lot of professional photographers and web designers recommend it.
                              Anyway, read some authority reviews to make a right decision:
