How is it award winning?

There is no single monitor manufacturer who's best for gaming, it's all down to the model. And depends what gaming you do. If you play fps games competitively, you want to avoid ips and get a tn screen with 1ms lag. If you'd rather better image quality, then go ips.

Would it be a smart idea to buy this monitor for gaming? Or should i buy a TN panel with 2 - 5 ms response?
#11
If it is only for gaming get a TN panel. If you might also do a bit of photo editing etc this would be a pretty good all rounder.

For most gaming, static picture quality is a better bet. You only want a monitor with minimal ghosting if you're planning games with lots of fast motion or are particularly sensitive to it. These days minimal ghosting generally means a strobing backlight, high refresh rate and well tuned overdrive. Quoted 'reponse time' is pretty meaningless now.

If you want a good priced monitor that works fine for gaming, I'd reccomend the BenQ GW2760HM just for the value. It actually uses a VA instead of IPS panel. VA panels don't always necessarily have the same clarity as IPS, they are certainly a lot better than TN panels. you can get IPS panel monitors around this price at 1080p if you look hard enough, but the cheaper IPs panels they put into budgeted monitors truly are no different to VA panels.

If you want better quality you'd need to buy a more expensive monitor, with a good IPS panel. Of course the better the IPS panel the more colours it produces, leaving a better looking image but increased input lag. the Benq has a good gtg response time.

Any thoughts on the Acer G277HLbid?

Personally I avoid Acer like the plague. AOC have been much more reliable in my experience with very competitive prices.

VA's are the worst panels for gaming... the response time of that BenQ is 12ms. Also it seems to not be flicker-free despite BenQ's website saying it is.
The HS model is the better out of the two, but still not great for gaming IMO. VA has a long way to go in that respect...

Contrast levels on the two will blow IPS and TN out of the water though!

Funny I literally received my GW2760HS this morning from ebuyer. So far it seems fantastic. I have tried it in a number of games and quickly played a few hd movies clips. I would recommend it.
The only bad side is the stand is far from ideal, but it serves it's function - it seems that is a bit of a trend on cheaper monitors.
The trouble with buying monitors/tvs are
1. there's too many too choose from
2. the image is subjective to the viewer - one will love it another will hate it
3. you really need to think about what you want it for - I sometimes play games, but mainly use the net - hence this choice of model

When people carp on about ms, yes it all counts obviously and it can give you that little bit of an edge, but unless you are half good at a game anyway it won't make much odd's, you'll still be dead more than alive just like me!. X)

To be honest mate, people fret way to much about response times. My last Hazro monitor had pretty poor timings, but I only ever noticed ghosting in 8-bit and fast paced retro titles. Modern games were absolutely fine.

Input lag is the biggest detrimental thing to gaming (which is why I got rid of the Hazro). The funny thing is input lag figures are never included in monitor specs and people rarely question them here on monitor deals!

I'm sure ips monitors are currently only running at 60htz? Your better off with a TN panel monitor

Im currently looking for a budget monitor for casual gaming does anyone know if this is any good or if theres a better one for around this price? cheers!

Although I'm a bit anti that brand, that does look good. I always suggest IPS.

I will mention the NRGIT deal though as it's a Dell screen and a great Spec for a very great price. Sure, you have to make it a home page or you won't catch them in stock (ppl say a phonecall often helps) , sure you need a spare Dell stand lying around, sure it's a bit smaller (but still 1920x1080 & smaller is often better) and it only has 3 USB ports, VGA, DVI and displayport and usually arrives next day for £66. I have a 22" and a 24" from this source.

You still suggest IPS for gaming? I believe IPS is nowhere as fast as a good TN...


I challenge anyone to be able to tell the difference in 5ms TN or 8ms Dell IPS.

I'll take that challenge, just mail both monitors to me and I'll get right on it ;-)
