I'm in to photography a bit (for realsies amateur) and also do a fair bit of gaming, a pre-calibrated monitor liek this is looking like a pretty good buy for the photography end of things, but I also need it to perform well in game.

do any ncix forum-goers have experience?

I game on an LG 1920X1200 IPS panel. I strongly suspect the input lag makes a considerable difference in the FPS genre, but really have no conclusive proof other than what is said by people who know much more than I.

Dell U2412M works fine for me. The input lag is just a number, sort of like the 1trillion:1 DIEnamik kontrasht rayshio advertised by so many shameless companies these days. Why the hell would anyone judge a product based on numbers instead of a first hand experience with the product is beyond me /facepalm.

I game on the real deal (the 246) every day...I have well above 20/20 vision and I can't detect ghosting or motion blur. This is plenty fast for any gaming you have a mind to be doing.

It's worth noting that if you want to use this for photography, you need either a workstation class card or a hacked driver to take advantage of 10-bit colour. According to the AMD guys I spoke to on the phone (try getting a clear answer on whether or not the consumer radeons support 10 bit colour from any of their datasheets)...the cards themselves support deep colour, but the drivers don't as it's considered a professional class feature. You can soft mod radeon cards to do it, though.

Thanks Connor!

I don't think the 248 has 10 bit colour, as it only does 16.7 million colours, and as I said, I'm really just playing around, I've done a few shoots for friends with small businesses and the like, just so they can have dome decent shots on their facebook pages.

I'm definitely not ready to go WS class. Maybe one day :)

Same here, The 246 is a great monitor for gaming. Unless they seriously screwed up this one it will be fine.

I can detect a bit of motion blur if things are moving fast (i.e. flying in a game and watching the ground if there is a lot of changing detail) but it is hardly noticeable unless you are trying to find it. The benefits of IPS outweight any small thing like this anyways.

A good well calibrated IPS monitor makes all the difference in the world, especially for photo editing. I doubt you would notice the difference between 8 and 10 bit even with the correct drivers/hardware/software.

I have one of these as well as the 2412M - have had no ghosting issues with either.

I use both my desktop and notebook for work and the input switching is a lot more convenient on the ASUS.

Contrary to what manufacturers like us to believe, LED back lighting is inferior to Cold Cathode Fluorescent tubes of "old" because "white" LEDs have a very uneven patchy limited color spectrum but still adds up to nearly white, sort of. This is why the PA246Q had/has superior color and why 10 bit color really would be wasted on any LED backlit monitor where 8 bit is more than adequate. For the most accurate color you need high quality "wide gamut" CCFL backlight, plus color calibration, plus 10 or 12 bit and also need to be working with software in the adobe RGB color space to see true colors and the really rich vibrant deep pure greens and reds that tend to look a bit yellow and orange on monitors like these working within the narrower "consumer" sRGB color space limits. There's no free lunch.

If you read the reviews on this monitor, it's stated that the reactivity is good (very low input lag). it's apparently faster than the U2412M in games also. On the gaming side of the equation, no reviewers mentioned issues/slow-downs in FPS titles...it's specifically mentioned to put the "trace-free" setting at 40 to eliminated reverse ghosting..

All in all, this week-end's sale, for $289 and $20 MIR + a shipping deal on top made me make the jump. My oldie Samsung T220 will retire.

I'll post a review once I get it. I play BF3 and MOH Warfighter, and I hope the results satisfactory!

Alright,

I received this beauty today. No dead or bright pixels.Not too sure if there was a red line on the bezel before (on some reviews it showed in red), but mine doesn't. It's all black!
I did set the "Trace free" option to 40, like mentioned in most reviews.

I loaded BF3, MOH Warfighter, L4D2, Quake 4 and my less critical games.

no slow down, no ghosting, lag or anything. So yes, this is fast enough for gaming in first person shooters.

I'm a happy camper!

Hi Delavan,

I'm looking to buy this monitor as well. Can you help me out here?
I went to 2 NCIX locations to try and buy this monitor but at both locations the boxes they had showed a picture on the outside of the monitor with the RED line. NCIX staff could not confirm what was inside the box. Can you confirm what photo was on YOUR box? Was it the photo with the red line and INSIDE the actual monitor DID NOT have the red line on the bezel? Also, is there any dates or numbers on the outside of the box (If you still have it) that would indicated what batch or production your monitor was in? Then I can match it to the ones at NCIX and make sure I get the correct one. I also hate the red line. Or if anyone else can help out, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
