I chose long and hard, but just couldn't make a choice. I don't wanna pull trigger again only to regret it later, so I need your help...

I want it to be 23-24 inches, 1920 x 1080/1200.

My priorities (greatest to least)
1. Color (Contrast ratio, etc)
2. Black level
3. Response time/Input lag
4. 120 hz
5. Ergonomic
6. Price under $400

I'm not a super competitive gamer, but do play some from time to time. I play a lot of single player FPS/TPS/Open-world.

I want to buy IPS panel, but I don't know how they will perform on games.


Monitors I looked at:

BenQ 2420T
VG 248QE
Dell U2412M

Leaning towards U2412M, but I don't know about gaming.

Hey dude,

I just bought this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

About a week ago and my friend bought a Viewsonic at the same price range at the same time.

Mine turned out WAY nicer. I have no complaints at all about this monitor. The screen is insanely clear, bright ( I love bright), and the contrast ratio and response time is amazing. I play BF3, CS, and I don't see any lag.

About to try my XBox on it.. ANyways, for the price, you can't beat it in my opinion.

Good luck

okay, who's the slob that was standing over my shoulder while I was sitting on the toilet reading the article about the BenQ XL2420T?

nvidia 3d vision support also.......... but you have to invest in that..... doesn't come with the monitor.

For now one 7970 ghz IceQ X2, but later (when 8000 or 700 series comes out) crossfire it. So would go over 60 FPS depending on settings/games, but won't be reaching close to 120 FPS for most newer games.

don't worry about the actual frame rates. everything you do will seem smoother than running a 60Hz.

Best solution

the description says 8ms, not good for gaming, doesn't say 120Hz or did I miss it? and if you read it says 21" monitor so either newegg has the wrong data published or the manufacturer is wrong. Which one is it?

It's not a 120 hz he said he was looking at a IPS there might be some of you who think that an IPS panel monitor doesn't belong on this list. Other's might think that the only thing worth putting on this list is an IPS panel monitor. While there are advantages to each, the Dell UltraSharp U2412M sticks out as a great value e-IPS display with decent color reproduction, wide viewing angles, and a low 9.4ms input lag.

Ultimately with the Dell U2412M you get one of the better pictures available in the $300 range and a IPS monitor that won't bog you down while gaming.If he wanted a 120 hz he should get the BenQ XL2420T.

did you read the "overview"?

"See vivid imagery from almost any angle. The 21.5" Dell UltraSharp U2212HM monitor with LED offers a brilliant view, rich colors and adjustable height options."

big difference between 21 and 24 inch monitors.

No i must of missed that i thought it was 23"inch and i agree there certainly is a big difference between 21" and 24" inch monitors.
