Hello all,

I am looking at buying a new IPS monitor but I have a very specific set of requirements. I have looked for ages and haven't found anything which ticks all the boxes, and was wondering if anyone can help.

23" or 24" IPS Monitor. Must:
have HDMI (preferably 2)
be 5ms or less
be 1920x1080
be wall mountable
cost under £150 (with a small margin above if needed)
have ports which plug in from the sides and not back (because of wall mount)
look awesome :) 

Thanks in advance for any help :D

for your budget you are only gong to get e-ips which really is nothing close to what 8bit and 10bit ips panels are.

all you really gain with e-ips is a better viewing angle over tn and sometimes va depending on the subtype.

im not sure if you will find ports on the side but you will find ports on the bottom most likely.

keep in mind that the advertised ms ratings on monitors can vary quite a bit depending on who tests them. most are not all that accurate so buyer beware. honestly though as long as you get one rated for under 12ms maximum you should be fine.

for wall mount get one with a vesa mount capability.

have a look around at viewsonic, dell, acer, asus and samsung to see what you are interested in and post some ideas here.

Hi -ssdx is right on with regard to cost (of a good IPS panel), in your price range, and the
response time issue. The really low ms times quuoted on the tn panels are mostly mktng
hype, and ssdx is also correct that anything below 12ms wil work well.

You need to either lower your expectations or increase your budget if you want a quality
IPS panel (which I would do if I were you), particularly if you want to go to a 24" IPS
panel. The xtra inch from 23" to 24" is a significant increase in price, but also usually means going from
1920x1080 to 1920x1200 which I would find an important consieration.

If you are primarily a gamer then the 1920x1200 is not as important as it is for other
usages.

this is not to say there is anything wrong with e-ips per se. its a good panel. however people often associate ips with the higher end s-ips, p-ips and h-ips panels (8 and 10bit) and often manufacturers dont specify what type of ips panels they use specifically because its likely e-ips at that price range.

not all ips panels are created equal. just thought i would make that clear in case you were expecting e-ips to be hands over heels better than tn and va. in some ways it is superior (viewing angle) but image quality is similar.

Wow, thanks for the help everyone, didn't realise IPS had different versions :o 

Here's the main contender I've been looking at, what do you all think: http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/monitors-and-pro...

I also looked at the ASUS VS239H and the LG IPS234V, but neither of these were really spot on with what I want. Any advice would be really appreciated.

EDIT: Also, what's the difference between the VS239H and the VS239H-P?

Hi - Well if you're buying a modern IPS panel from any brand, it's an LG panel, so purch an
LG display assures that you're getting it direct from the OEM, which can't hurt.

I don't know anything about that specific display, but it looks like a worthy contender at
that price.

just because two monitors share the exact same panel does not make them equal. the electronics and backlight also have much input on what the final product looks like.

take many televisions for example. two may share the exact same panel but one is clearly much much better off than the other. to say that since they share the same panel they are equal is to ignore all of these other factors.

as far as the lg that was mentioned it looks like standard fare for an e-ips panel. its likely an alright choice but i would highly suggest viewing the panel in person or reading at least 50 reviews from people who have bought the monitor to know what you are getting into before you pull the trigger.

the difference between the h and h-p versions are the response times which most likely means a different panel is used. i would guess that the h version is older.

op.. you should probably read the monitor guide manofchalk and i have stickied at the top of perepherals.

I'm well aware of that, which is why I stated I didn't know about that particular display.
I'm not considering LG monitor as my next monitor purchase in a little less than a month.
