A good deal and therefore hot however should note you would be much better off getting an IPS panel. You won't notice 2ms v 5-8ms but you will certainly notice picture quality! Well worth to do research and get a really nice monitor.

Is this true? Because I've narrowed my search down to this IPS Acer monitor, and this.

Which one should I go for?
It really is a case of personal preference. Consider when watching movies and playing the PS4 will you be sat straight on or off to an angle? IPS will give better viewing angles if you've got a group of mates huddled round it. You're unlikely to notice much difference between 2ms and 6ms unless you're coming from a 2ms display. The same goes for IPS vs TN. The only people who nerdgasm over the improved colour reproduction are those upgrading from a knackered 10 year old TN. That being said, once you're used to using an IPS display, returning to a TN will be a noticeable downgrade in image quality.

You'll no doubt be happy with either and given this one is now out of stock??? Also for what it's worth decided mine is going back as back light bleed aside it has failed to impress me on either colour reproduction or build quality. Gonna continue the wait for a deal on a Dell U2414H.

Awful back light bleed on mine :( Gotta wait 2-4 weeks for a replacement now grrr.

JustAnotherDade
Would this be okay for gaming, or should I go for the Acer G246HLBBID for £17 more? It has a slightly bigger screen and 2ms response time, but is TN panel.
If all you're doing is gaming then the fast TN panel always makes sense. The fact you're asking and only spending £120 on your monitor means you're probably not enough of a hardcore gamer to be able to tell the difference without having the screen side by side however. You also didn't mention the benefits of IPS being a consideration? in which case that sounds like your decision is made for you.

Just to make it even harder for you. If you're after a budget gaming screen then you'll struggle to beat the Asus VE247H http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-VE247H-Widescreen-Intelligence-Technology/dp/B004T2LMP2 There is also a slightly cheaper BenQ lots of people rate. I forget the exact model (GL2460HM???), sorry.


I'm not really a hardcore gamer, I will be using the monitor with my laptop for general use and watching movies, but I'll also have it hooked up to a ps3 for gaming. On that basis, would the 6ms response time be enough for me? It seems to me as if this monitor would be the best value for my usage.

What would be more beneficial, the better display of the IPS panel or the quicker response time of the TN panel?

Cheers.

Pros and cons to everything. Better to just list them out because there is no right and wrong just choice. This being a don't want my GPU to sweat it 1080P screen more suited to entertainment use than work is fine but I would always do research before making a monitor purchase. Some place like TFT central or Prada.de
silver999
I had a high res 22" with a 16:10 ratio... I now have this monitor and see it as a massive improvement.

It's 16:9 ratio and with windows 8 snap view it easily allows me two browsers side by side for much faster multitasking. Also you don't need to sit as close to the monitor with a larger screen! I have a huge partner desk and whereas the old monitor was placed in the middle, this one is placed at the back. I'll upload a photo next week if I get chance.

Higher res would equal smaller text etc by default so you would indeed be more inclined to sit close.

Another point worth making is that it's IPS so brighter and much more vivid than most monitors... This makes this fantastic for gaming photographers (eg me).

Granted it's not for everyone but I love it and I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better panel for the money.
buelligan
I have a 21" monitor with 1920x1080. Why would I want a 27" monitor with the same res? You need to go to Specsavers Silver,.
yant
What you call resolution snobbism is another person's basic desire for quality and performance.

27" 1080p for a computer monitor is a very low pixel density. Things will be big but the details will not be there. Don't forget that you sit much closer to a monitor than a tv.

This is fine if all you do with this monitor is watch movies, play low resolution console games (720p) or medium resolution pc games (1080p) but not great if you are looking for more demanding usage than that.

Poor read and write speeds, in comparison my SanDisk Extreme that I bought 6 month ago (which I just tested) is 192 MB/s read, 118 MB/s write which are the type of speeds you would expect from a decent USB3 flash drive.

If you want a decent USB2 drive then go for this, if you want USB3 I wouldn't bother.

You have a very big problem with your laptop then mate, seriously

Well yes it need a re-install it's over two years old but the point is the desktop still does everything I need it to do. Mainly use it for image and video recording editing. I admit I'm in no hurry so cutting 20% of the time it takes makes no sense at the cost of £100s.

Given that this was designed in 2010 as reviewed here:

I'm not entirely convinced it really is for all PS3 designs. And I have a feeling this is why it is being sold off.

Almost exactly the same performance as a 5770 which I've seen for £50, also 6850 is 37% faster and can be had for £84.

Wouldnt buy one of these for a new build, youll get about 20fps from most recent games with this - however it is a good price for the item, so heat added

At 1920x1200 with everything on absolute maximum and 4x AA maybe but under those settings you're looking for a £200 to get good results anyway. Now that it's come down in price a little this isn't bad value, although the £100-120 cards will give you more for you money.
