I am shopping around for 3x 1920x1200 26"+ monitor for a 2d nVidia surround setup.
I don't want to hear any of the fables of the "big pixels" on larger monitors, a 1920x1080 28" monitor won't have any big blocks so a 1920x1200 def won't either. Not interested in that argument, just color/lighting quality:cost ratio.
Price is a factor, but so is quality. The two I have found so far are:
I lean towards the NEC (Which is usually on sale for $480) because of it is obviously a much superior monitor.
My issues are the price (3 of those would be rather expensive) and the fact that it's 5ms response time (invites ghosting for my high paced FPSs).
The Haans-G is without a doubt the less quality monitor, I'm sure it bleeding issues and I doubt the colors are as good as the NEC.
So my 5 part question:
1 Has anyone used this Haans-G model (or one in it's class)?
2 Does this Haans-G model have color/bleed issues?
3 Does this NEC model have ghosting issues?
4 Is the cost ($470 x3) worth the extra for the NEC over the Haans-G?
5 Does anyone know another 26"+ 1920x1200 monitor?
All monitors have color/bleed issues. Generally speaking, the larger the monitor the larger the areas can be.
The monitors you have selected use TN panel technology and while they are inexpensive to manufacture and can have response times as lows as 2ms, they tend to have more backlight bleeding issues compared to more expensive LCD panel technology like VA and IPS. Additionally, TN panels tends to have more color shifting.
Hanns-G is one of the worst brand names around which is why their products are
Of the two I would prefer the NEC. However, I do not like TN panel monitors in general. Here's a detailed review of the NEC:
