  • finding a new monitor

    Can my fellow gamers help me find a good monitor for under $200?

    I still use a flatscreen crt.

      You can get enough on the internet, but quality is sometimes hard to find.;) Also is user experience.:)
      Might be good to know if you only use it for gaming or do other things on it also.

        IPS panels. Better colors, better viewing angles.

          my problems only involve knowing what brands to stay away from and anything to consider as important...

                You know I am joking with you right?

                Yeah IPS panels are great apart from the refresh rate, I would also go with LED and one that has all the connections on the back so it can be used as a TV or with a console etc.

                Samsung make good monitors.

                  Short video from Linus explaining the different panel types. As for brand I'm partial towards Samsung (Using 4 Samsung monitors) and Asus.

                  If it was me I would go for a 23-24 inch 120+Hz TN panel from either brand. But check the video out and see what type of panel you feel will work for you needs.

                  BenQ and Dell seems to be really popular over here but I've always seen them as a low quality cheap hardware. Maybe they have been improving? Or are people here in Sweden just buying crap still?


                  Oh if you have a bright room with direct sunlight go with a matte bezel screen. Glossy will create a lot of sun glare.

                    I have Samsung and a Dell IPS. I need to move to Sweden if Dell are cheap crap lol, Dell IPS panels are pretty high end and produce a beautiful picture with outstanding colour accuracy. Dell are generally a bit more expensive in the UK compared to say a similar size Samsung. Even so Samsung are very nice, was quite happy with mine until I got the Dell IPS which simply has a better picture, better blacks, more accurate and vibrant colors etc. Just a case of what you want to pay really and then a lot of review reading.

                      Sounds like I'm just not following up with hardware as well as I thought. I remember Dell as the company much like HP with the overpriced rebuilt packages that you couldn't upgrade without using a dremel and some soldering.
                      Maybe I should start looking a little bit more into what they actually make today..

                        Ok, so I bought an Asus VS208. I like it so far.

                          Dang, I was going to recommend a 21.5 " Lenovo IPS-LED monitor: http://www.microcenter.com/product/4...PS_LED_Monitor

                          I have it for a LAN rig and is by far (on visual inspection of at MC) looked far sharper, brighter, and better built than the other IPS-LED screens at the price point of $130-$200.
