Thread: best non 3d LED 24" Gaming monitor

  1. #16

    Default

    Any suggestions welcome. Just telling me not to go with Normal CCFL screens is not enough. Give me suggestions and I will go for it. I'm looking at upgrading my 23" and using my current monitor for my ps3

    If you prefer 16:10 (1920x1200) aspect ratio displays.

    I disagree about LED vs CCFT, I bought two 27" monitors, Phillips 273ELH LED and samsung P2770H not LED. The Phillips outperformed the Samsung, but for the price difference I'm still not sure if it’s worth it (R3600 and R2800 respectively). The LED samsungs do however perform better than the Phillips but you pay for that.

    Surely an LED backlight will outlast a CCFL by a substantial amount? It's very rare to find a blown LED but fluorescent lamps can be very unreliable.

    I'm very happy with my Samsung BX2331 ( not wall mountable though).

    Well, I can almost assure you that the Philips uses a better panel, so it is not all on the LEDs. You can also look up specs for screens and note that the same panel with LED backlight will have about 70% of the colorspace coverage of the same panel with a CCFL backlight. (off course, this is not so much true if the gamut is limited by the panel and not the backlight)

    On the reliability issue - that might be true, but I have never had a CCFL panel fail (touch wood). LEDs do have much better power consumption as well.

    There is merit for LED-backlit screens, I just don't think it is at all worth paying a premium for something that is cheaper to produce, just because everybody thinks it is a lot better when it is not.

    @nelis, If your priority is color and viewing angles, I would suggest getting the new Dell U2412. It is an e-IPS panel, 24" just like the U2311, but with a resolution of 1920x1200. (The U2311 is ~R2k, so this one should not be much more, and having a U2311, I can really vouch for it in terms of color and viewing angles. It is not the fastest display, though but not that much worse than my "2ms" samsung...)

    The LED is actually not that much more than a noramal CCFL pannel.

    Do you have any idea when the U2412's will become available in SA? I've been looking around for a new screen for a while, but there's simply nothing that's slightly higher-end that offers value for money, in my opinion, and this may fit the bill.

    It seems the U2412 is also LED backlit, (with quite a drop in the GAMUT from 110% to 80%, although the panel is also different from the one with 110%)

    It is available in the other parts of the world from monday, so maybe phone the suppliers next week...

    Having an extended gamut is pointless unless you need it, and can actually have drawbacks when in standard sRGB colour space, e.g. oversatured colours. Unless you specifically need wide gamut, you'll probably be better off with a screen around standard gamut, 72% of NTSC colour space.

    Also, I would not go by Dell's gamut figures, since they are confusing. U2410 has 102% of standard NTSC colour space with an 8-bit H-IPS panel (but can produce 10-bit - 1.07B colours with FRC). U2412 has 71% of standard NTSC colour space with a 6-bit e-IPS panel (but can produce 8-bit - 16.7M colours with FRC). The panel looks like a continuation of the move to cheaper IPS panels, being very similar to the e-IPS panel in the HP ZR24W, but less bright (due to LED) and not native 8-bit. This is a good thing for 16:10 monitor lovers, if the monitor isn't pants, that is.

    U2412M should be a lot cheaper than the U2410. I would estimate around R3.5K or lower, but I would really wait for reviews to check the RTC and motion blur before you buy if you have gaming in mind.

    So I recieved my LED Screen today. Man it's awesome. Much better than my old 23" screen. Even when I play games red is red and blue is blue. Black is black and white is white. Also my game feels much smoother
