Oh I want one.........

Looks like Amazon is price matching Pixmania, which is good news for the customer.

I bought these when they were similarly priced earlier this month. Brilliant monitor and easily recommended!

Just use the HDMI or DVI to HDMI cable.

Quality never seems as crisp on HDMI vs DVI

Is 5ms a good speed for gaming?

That will be due to a single piece of poor quality equipment as they have exactly the same inherent quality.

No. One can buy a screen with 2ms or even 1ms for similar price. Asus do a few.

It's fine and your games will look WAY better on this because of the better colour reproduction by IPS displays.
#10
Is this better than the dell models?
#11
Does it have built-in speakers?
#12
The human eye can't differentiate between 0ms and 12ms. And most of the time 2ms rated budget monitors do not actually measure 2ms when tested, as the manufacturers pull a sly one by listing it's G2G ratio.

Also, If we all still played games on LAN's I'd understand getting as fast a response time as possible, or even a CRT. But when you take in mind that the ping times in online gaming are (far) slower than monitor response times, why is the latter such an important benefactor?

Lovely looking piece of kit that. I've got an Asus monitor that's a couple of years old but love it.

5ms is perfect for gaming. I use a 5ms display and game without any issues, its definitely already faster than the responce time of most TVs.
#15
Love it when manufacturers decide not to include a current connector. No display port? No buy from me.
#16
The monitor comes with an HDMI to DVI cable. Just bought one of these. Good monitor.
#17
Thank you for this. Just bought one. Amazing deal

Input lag isn't just about beating people online though is it

But will someone with 1ms be able to kill me faster for example? Will they see me before I see them?

No, especially online where the response time from the servers will be much higher.

Yes it has 3w Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers.

dvi is old and annoying

DVI annoying? HDMI suffers from annoying handshakes. For a monitor I much prefer DVI.

Yeah screwing and unscrewing your cables isn't annoying. Dvi is legacy; hdmi and dp are the evolution and have pretty much replaced dvi for many. I have never heard of handshaking and had to google what that was, so it must not be a big problem. Come back to me when dvi can do 4k.

How many times do you unscrew a DVI cable?
Because you haven't had HDMI problems doesn't mean they don't exist. HDMI < 2.0 can't do 4k higher than 30fps so that's pointless for a monitor.
Since when does lack of 4k make something annoying?

As I'm seeing some folk prefer HDMI, I thought I'd pipe up about an HDMI/Nvidia annoyance.

If you have an Nvidia card, think long and hard about using HDMI as, Nvidia cards show the wrong colour depth. I've just gone through this annoyance with my 670gtx and a Dell U2414H. I managed to use a third party patch, but, everytime I want to upgrade my drivers I'll have to re-apply the patch. And no, AMD cards do not have this problem.

Worse still, I wanted to use the Displayport, but, that also suffers from the same colour problems. However, frustratingly, there is NO patch that can fix that problem. I'm starting to think it may be time to go back to an AMD card.

Guys you're confusing input lag with pixel switching time. And yes, both matter. If you have 50ms ping and 20-40ms input lag on the top of that, it gets bad. Don't start with the "human eye can't see over 24fps" and other nonsense. Some people do, deal with it, you obviously never played Q3A on a 120Hz CRT monitor.

5ms isn't too good either. OK for casual gaming but try playing CS:GO or any faster FPS with it. It's simply blurry and fast movements require you to adjust your sight and spot enemies where other people with faster panels simply see it all the time. Also quoted 5ms are usual gray-to-gray times, so objects with higher contrast are much worse than that.

IPS panels are OK but not for all games. Having said that, if you have to ask about it here then chances are you won't be playing those titles where it really matters.

Bought this the last time it was this price (not so long ago), absolutely brilliant monitor. If you're worried about the speakers, they are definitely the best internal speakers I have heard on a monitor/TV that size, it's not tinny, and it has a little amount of bass, little, but at least it's there. Quality wise it honestly wowed me, I got multiple compliments from friends and family, and gaming on it looks super smooth. I've noticed no ghosting at all, it's 5ms so no ghosting was expected imo, I don't even see ghosting on 8ms monitors tbf.

All in all, it's the best monitor out there for the price imho. As for the HDMI inputs, I've NEVER had problems with HDMI, on Nvidia and AMD cards, and on my PS3, and it's the same with this monitor, no issues at all. Well chuffed that it came with 2 HDMI's as I don't have to switch HDMI's if I want to switch between PC and PS3, and don't have to invest in another HDMI splitter (old one broke after 2 months). If you're on the edge, it's Amazon after all, just return it within a month if you don't like it, but trust me, you'll keep it, it's a fantastic monitor and I may be buying another one soon.

Also, the box had many extra accessories, including EU and American plugs, and a DVI to HDMI wire. (and mine came with two UK plug wires for some reason, maybe an error on their part?) Keep in mind, this TV does have a power brick, but it's really really small, about the size of a square USB hub.

I've played many hours of CS GO and CSS on this monitor already, noticed no 'blurry-ness' at all, CS GO looks fantastic on this monitor with the colours popping out. Are there any more fast paced games I should try out? I literally can't see any ghosting at all on this monitor, and not that this means much, but I have very good eye sight. The monitor has literally shown me a new aspect of some of the games out there, they look so beautiful, like Far Cry 3 for example, it looks far better compared to my old 1080p monitor (non IPS).

I'm yet to find an IPS panel without ghosting (got 2 at work and 1 at home...) Also this Asus uses PWM for brightness adjustment. Again - some people are fine with it, but I can spot the flicker and my eyes hurt after 20-30 minutes in front of such screens.

It's probably a good screen, but won't be perfect for a gaming. Sadly only only 89% sRGB coverage but at this price point a good monitor.

There are times dvi comes in handy. Spec me a 1440p monitor whose hdmi work at native resolution @ 60hz. DP is good and there are times I need my dvi but I never used my hdmi on my 1440p monitor.

Good to see someone beat me to it. That is, indeed, the patch I used. Hopefully this helps other Nvidia users as, from what I have learned, Nvidia don't give a monkeys about fixing this problem.

As I said in my first post, the DP is worse. This patch will NOT work if you use a DisplayPort. Only HDMI is fixable.
