    Hey guys, I have drawn you a pic of what I have. I may have overdone a bit on the color strength though, but it's really really evident. The 2 balls is where I my eyes are and what effect of sepia I have and where. If I lift my head above the monitor it disappears. Is this such poor viewing angle that plagues all bigger monitors? I'm trying to understand if this is normal.

    dude sometimes monitor cables/connectors cause troubles. If your in doubt sell the monitor and get another.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Take a screen cap of it. That will give us a better pic of it. :laugh:

    I doubt your going to be able to get a good enough pic of it with a camera.

    You said you tried a different monitor with the same result? How bout a different gpu?

    I tried a couple of different DVI cables, I even connected the monitor to my laptop via a VGA cable. I'm pretty sure it's the monitor.

    It just struck me how little reviews and round-ups there are for monitors compared to other PC hardware. This is one of the most important equipment and you're kind of stuck to reading other buyers' feedback huh.

    That BenQ XL2410T looking really good, kind of many features I won't need (like 3D vision) but it's really calming they call it "gaming" grade which should be a step above the generic desktop monitors in terms of ghosting/smearing/response time.

    That's extremely common on low end/entry level LCDs. The larger the monitor gets, the more noticeable the problem often becomes. My older Samsung had this issue where whites looked perfect dead on, but my clock widget's white face would look sepia in the top right hand corner of the screen. If I moved position the face would return to white.

    Eventually it bothered me enough that I moved over to an IPS screen with much better viewing angles. My IPS is not the best around, but it has eliminated the color shifting.

    Honestly 25ms Response time doesnt ghost its more of a market ploy

    ya I have a 10+ yo 17" NEC Multisync LCD 1700V that hasnt had those issues.

    I see that on my screen also (barely) but more to the sides of the screen & only if i am to close to the screen so back up 18" to 24" from it & site straight it should be fine , it also help having a good light room

    I agree... but i never notice it before the OP thread thought
    Perhaps because i am usually 24"+ away from my screen

    it still blows my mind consumers gave up on CRT monitors. a lot of gamers still use them because there is nothing better.

    the only advantage LCD monitors have is geometry and convergence. LCD monitors are lighter and more energy efficient but what is the point if they don't perform? they were supposed to be cheaper because they could mass produce them but are they really? look at the premium you have to pay to get 120hz refresh rate.

    look at the motion resolution

    http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1038401770&postcount=8015

    the black levels, color accuracy, input lag, motion resolution will always be better.

    I have edited my post because i think you miss understood me?

    But as your pic... you may have a software problem , game issues , monitor or something?
    because i already tried that an old 17" CRT with my 24" LCD in eyefinity with 2 monitors (2048x768 & 2560x1024) & i never saw those lags/effects on my LCD
    The only difference is that the IQ was slightly better on the CRT didn't notice anything else

    EDIT:If i remember right i ran 60hz for both screens (LCD & CRT) maybe that is why i didn't notice any real differences between them?

    Hey guys, what can you tell me about monitors with 1920x1200 resolutions? Is there any problem running games? Older games? Or is it the same as 1920x1080, as long as the game itself supports the resolution?
    From personal experience, which resolution do you see more often offered in games 1080 or 1200?
    I want to go for Dell U2412M but the native resolution gives me second thought, otherwise BenQ XL2410T.

    there is a feature in the monitor that makes all the dark areas brighter but leaves the bright areas alone so you don't have to increase the gamma. one of the side effects is recovering from flashbang grenades quicker.

    Been using 16:9 (1080) for 2 years now & if you mostly game or watch movies then 16:9 is "better" but if you mostly read/write text , browse the internet , photoshop etc... you would be better with an 16:10 (1200) monitor which are really hard to find & more expensive

    One more question before I go to bed here, I see the "gaming" grade monitors offer 120Hz refresh rate. I know when you have vsync on the fps is capped to your refresh rate, but if you really compare the feel between a monitor with 60fps/hz and something like 120Hz monitor running 80-120fps - do you in fact feel any difference at all? I know it's not film where everything is 23fps (or whatever) and no higher number will produce a smoother feel, but there should be a point over which higher fps doesn't mean smoother experience.

    My question is, is it worth getting a 120Hz monitor for gaming? Not sure about my fps, but I stay capped at 60 almost all the time. It's either 120Hz or the Dell U2412M which has better colors/angles/uniformity and according to TFTCentral very very low input lag for an IPS panel which suits fine for "hardcore" gamers.

    I feel it when dragging the cursor across the screen or min/max windows.

    does that answer your question?

    Hasn't been any game I have played where 1920x1200 wasn't supported. The extra height is nice in Windows. Even the odd resolution of my Samsung, 2048x1152, was supported by every game I had used.

    The U2412M is a great bang for your buck eIPS monitor (its my current monitor :D), the only thing that has bothered me is the rather aggressive antiglare coating. It mainly bothers me on white backgrounds in Office apps, in games its no big deal.
