I currently have a Samsung B2430 24’’ LCD monitor which I bought last year. I would have gotten an IPS but the prices were too high back then. Now I am thinking of getting a Dell U2312HM LED IPS monitor.
There are a few things I want to know before buying, one of them is its suitability for games which I will be mainly using it for. I have read the review for U2311 and found it’s quite good for gaming (low input lag, ghosting response time etc...) so I am hoping it will be the same. The reason I am worried is that I don’t want an inferior gaming experience compared to my current monitor.
Another thing is because there is no HDMI connection I will be forced to use HDMI to DisplayPort cable to connect my PS3 (DVI will be occupied by PC) so I want to know if there will be any loss in image quality?
Lastly is it really worth upgrading? Any comments will be highly appreciated.
IPS monitor with good response times such as the dell u2311h is much superior to your samsung screen. The only thing that will probably be a problem will be scaling with the console... depending on the games. Other than that, TN to IPS will be a great improvement overall. I'd say go for it, dell is having a sale each day and my guess is that the u2311h will be in one of those sales. If you wanna upgrade this is a good opportunity.
