    i am new to IPS monitors and i have been looking for a IPS monitor but i dunno which IPS to go for or if i should go to 23inches, bcs atm i have 21,5inch monitors that's the size i like the best i have tried 26inch and 32inches they r just too big...

    i can find AH-IPS, E-IPS, P-IPS and S-IPS what is the differences? o_O

    AH-IPS = Advanced High Performance IPS (I know LG and Philips make those)
    E-IPS = Enhanced IPS
    P-IPS = Professional IPS
    S-IPS = Super-IPS

    ino that AH-IPS is from aorund 2011 and wikipedia says this about AH-IPS:


    i have been looking at LG's 22EA53VQ AH-IPS monitor, and i am thinking lot about power consumption aswell about the screens look. But when that's said i am kinda hooked on saving power aswell ^^;

    [​IMG]

    LG 22EA53VQ (LG UK)

    it got HDMI, VGA and DVI connector, 5ms refresh rate.

    will this LG be a bad choice to buy? it costs around 1063dkr which is about 180USD/140EUROs...

    no really, we do have home computer hardware store left in my city and other places where they sell computer monitors but they don't sell this exact model bcs if they did i would go look at it but i can't.

    most places only got normal non-ips monitors up for display.

    I've had my LG W3000H since last January with zero problems. That said, anecdotal evidence be anecdotal.

    I have EIZO Foris 2333 also quite good.

    Although in game mode i had to disable "smart resolution" and "smart insight" - not really a fan of them.

    Smart insight can be cool if i play fast paced fps and it looks to dark (but only at low RTS level).

    i myself am looking at a 1080P 24" Asus AH IPS thats borderless for my Family PC. They have a display model at CanComp and it looks even better and crisper than my LG IPS 226.


    One thing with IPS and ANY decent monitor is to download and apply the ICC color profile. It makes a big difference in quality and crispness IMO

    That is because most people just want a normal LCD and they have no idea what they are missing. They just want something to work and look ok. I being a game artist and working in 3D all day I need a great LCD. I have a PRO LCD but most would just be ok with a normal IPS LCD. I got my LCD because of its colors and more. My LCD is 30" so it kind of has to be IPS or the colors would not be tru on the screen from side to side. When you buy a good LCD you get your moneys worth out of it. I know I have. My LCD is not cheap by a long shot but it is one of the best. Dream Works and other studios use it to color calibrate their movie. It has 1.07 billion colors and is a 10 bit LCD rather than a 8 bit.

    HP ZR30w Black 30" 7ms S-IPS Panel Height &Swivel ...

    It is always better to have a smaller LCD with better specs than a larger LCD with worse specs. Also look at the makers as well. That can make a huge difference. I spent days reading and looking up stuff before I got my LCD. It was also recomited to me by one of my friends at Dream Works and Pixar.

    LCD is LCD. Some have LED backlighting some do not. It's not LCD or LED.

    Besides, all affordable LED-backlit models use the EdgeLED method, which means worse light uniformity, worse color gamut and worse color accuracy. All this so your monitor can be 50% thinner and use 30% less power. I don't think it's worth it.

    LCD and LED when spoken together are misnomers.
    Basically, all LED panels are LCDs with LED backlight.
    And the LCDs which all say are actually equipped with CCFL backlight.

    @OP- I have personally seen the Dell S2240M 22" IPS panel and it is wonderful to look at. Blacks are really awesome and viewing angle is just as stated. No color shift at all. Color distribution and blending is beautiful. Bought it for a client for 8600 Rs in India so it should be around 150$ or less.
    Ps. I envy the person I bought it for because I have got a TN panel with only 45/45 degree viewing angle.

    I think a fair few people get this mixed up.
    Even I did for a while there due to how LED is marketed.

    OP, LED is how the panel is lit up.
    They did not market flat panel monitors by the name of how the panel is lit prior to LED.

    Prior to LED back lit monitors, flat panel monitors CCFL back lighting.

    So what we should be comparing here is IPS or TN panel.
    Rather than LCD or IPS.

    Either way I am enjoying my LG IPS 23" monitor.
    Far superior to the old Samsung Sync master TN panel I had.
    The thing which stood out the most for me with IPS was the absence of terrible viewing angles.

    yes, but for blur free gaming a strobing backlight is needed, and only the "color-challenged" TFT/TN panels seem to have that...

    (but, i have a asus vg278h 120hz(600 dollars) , and a nec 321 wmi(300 dollars) ... yes the colors are better on the nec ips, but the asus 27 inch isnt so bad...

    LG is 5Ms and the Phillips is 7ms, no blurring in any of my games at all.

    with all due respect, ignorance... oh heck, it does not hurt to confirm or deny the existance of your ability to filter out blur...:toast::D (except if you start to notice it, it gets expensive to reduce it. :roll:)

    having said that, i don't really notice blur on my ips nec, when gaming... maining because i am not very good at gaming LOL (sad but true, oh well I suppose practice makes better), yet because i read that web site, it furthered my understanding of the issues involved with people "loving" that Antiquated tech that is CRT monitors...

    TL;DR... i bought an IPS monitor because i hated the fact that on TN/TFT, when you tilt your head, you can see brightness "bands" so i bought an IPS monitor...

    yes, even www.blurbusters.com Acknowledges that the world would be "perfect" if an ips monitor had 120Hz refresh and a strobing backlight.

    hey if there /is/ blur... its free motion blur.

    so the conclusion from this thread is... you will have to go see the monitor yourself. sorry puma99dk| :p
