Used to be that way, but current technology is much different. That's why I mentioned that many here @ TPU have one, since most users here play games fairly often it seems.
I wondered about that as well, since I started with IPS with 3007WFP, and although many reviews indicated this monitor induced heavy lag, I found the revision that I got, with different specs, had no issues at all, since there is no scaler built into the panel.
It eventually developed problems, and Dell replaced with the 3008WFP. This monitor... it did induce a bit of noticeable lag, by only when compared to the 3007..my other TN panels were actually worse.
Now, these U2412M, they are very cheap.. they are not the high-end IPS models. they do not do 10-bit color, and do not have built-in scaling hardware, so do not pose those "lag" issues. The higher-model 10-bit IPS panels have S-Video, component, VGA, 2xDVI, HDMI, DisplayPort... and have scaling hardware because of the S-video and component, and those models do have a bit of lag, but not much, since tech in that department has advanced as well.
So, today, you get really good 60 Hz IPS, and 120 HZ TN panels, where before it was laggy IPS, and 60 Hz TN. If you can afford IPS..DO IT!!!!
