I have a U2412M and this shit is the best monitor I have ever used. I have a samsung SMS27A550H next to it and the dell monitor makes this monitor look like shit. I also had an old HP monitor on my desk but removed it because I can't stand looking at its ugliness anymore, even for plain text.

>>30002242 not OP. but the one thing that holds me back is the lack of hdmi on the 23inch. Wish dell would release a 16:9 ips monitor with hdmi.

>>30002487 So until a 120hz IPS monitor exists, you're going to stay with IPS?

>>30002559 None that I've seen. the usual talk is >>30002564 If you're gaymen go with 120hz, if you care about image quality go with IPS. Dell IPS monitors are usually the first to be recommended. Dont know for 120hz monitors, maybe some benq shit or something.

>>30002617 because low input lag compared to other IPS monitors. 120hz purists will still lash out at you because you'll have lower kdr if you don't have a 120hz monitor.

I dont think people understand how small even 30ms input lag is. You're much better off spending time each day increasing your reaction time than passing up a good deal on a monitor because of .03 seconds. Human reaction time is like .15-.25 depending on whether or not you are a pleb, with .06-.15 ping to the server affecting you as well. The .03 seconds will only ever matter if you are LAN and have an absurd reaction time, and even then it won't in most cases.

>>30002672 go with what you prefer most, honestly 120hz isn't necessary imo, some people think it gives them an edge when MLG no scoping or some bullshit. Dell IPS monitors have low input lag so they're good for gaming coming to other IPS panels. Frankly I'd just go with a 23 or 24inch dell.

Anyone have any widgets and things to help me rice my new gs3? I was also looking for any way to center the clock at the top rather than have it to the right. It currently has CM10 and the UBER theme chooser applied to it. Thanks /g/

I debated for weeks and weeks about IPS vs 120Hz TN. I was convinced for whatever reason that I needed 120Hz for much games but I eventually got over myself and realized that 120 is just a gimmick to get gaymen to buy shit they don't need. I bought one of the u2412m's when they were on sale in Australia a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it. No remorse at all. Its a glorious monitor.

>>30002430 It's not the MoBo, scenario 1. single core CPU and freezing due to like 1500 services under svchost.exe. scenario 2. Shitty PATA HDD is fragged to hell and massive file clusters driving windows indexing crazy. scenario 3. display adapter fails making it seem like the machine's frozen

just got my U2713HM the other day and it is glorious. It rapes my current card (4870) though so now I need to upgrade. Thinking of getting a 7950 as I can't afford a 7970.

>>30002003 I hear the anti glare film is horrible on the U2412M, it's what stops me from buying it. Looking for a good monitor too and I'm willing to pay up to $700.

OP, just a tip, get the ASUS PA248Q over the Dell. It's so much better.
