Hi !
After tons of research i could not find a good monitor that has a high quality with IPS panel and no BLeeding or noticable Input lag under 400 $!



I think of Asus PA248Q , but somebody said this has a noticable input lag and bleeding ,
I thought about Benq XL2420 but it doesn't have a ips panel !

I wanted to buy 27" and 120 hz but 27 inch is good with 1440 P resoulation and i would have pixel density ,isn't it?!
After that 120 hz is good for gamers who paly above 120 FPS and not for 80 FPS even though , my videocar can not handle 120 FPS ! ( I have a GTX 570). I think a 24 inch with IPS panel and low respons time/ input lag is Fair decision . I dont like to buy online monitor!


Can you help me and give me an advice ?!


Thanks...

No IPS is a good thing for gaming. IPS adds a noticeable input lag that would hinder your gaming capabilities.

I find that as long as I get to 80 or higher FPS, 120hz does help reduce latency a noticeable amount. I notice the difference in the lack of nausea that I normally experience at lower FPS and refresh rates. 120 FPS may be nice to have when using a 120hz monitor, but not required for a positive experience.

Pixelation issues at 27" is a personal issue. I don't notice it, or at least I don't care enough to go higher in resolution. With AA, and ClearType, I do not notice pixels at all unless I put my nose to the screen. Others may disagree. For gaming, it has the advantage of allowing you to game at higher FPS than you'd get with 1440p. This is important to me, as I had already let you know, low FPS cause me nausea.

All that said, a single 570 will likely have to lower settings a bit to even get to 80+ FPS in most newer games.

So you suggest that is better to buy 27 inch even with 1080 P?!

I'm suggesting that I prefer 27" at 1080p than 24" at 1080p. I also am saying that I experience noticeable gains with 120hz monitor, even at 80 FPS.

Your mileage may vary.

^I dislike 1080p at 27", because I sit close enough (2-3 feet) that I can notice definite pixelation.

Get the BenQ - IPS panels are really, really bad for gaming.

I play games on IPS panel monitors; H-IPS panels to be exact. I have no issues with them.

The 23" Dell U2312HM has low input lag (lower than the Dell U2412) and it is an e-IPS panel.

Regardless of which panel type the monitor has, there is always a chance of ghosting and backlight bleeding. They are limitations of the LCD technology itself.

So if you were me ...you go with Pa248 (in store) or U2412 (order online) ?

I would not recommend the PA248, if it is anything like the PA238QR it will suffer from some serious backlight bleeding.

What about the ASUS PB278Q, anyone have any experiences with that?
