    IPS 1920x1200 now, or..

    IPS 1920x1200 now, or should i hope that some sort of led 120hrz 1920x1200 hrz comes out

    the problem comes that there are 2 current IPS panels left on the market and they are 24", i doubt that they will keep being made or for sub $500. but an led 120hrz should be better except that i think that they will all be tn and all be 1080p

    Depends on what you currently have IMO.
    If you have a monitor with resolution lower than 1920x1200, by no means get one now, maybe even TN since they are cheap, for a year or so.
    And once you can ($$$ and availability), move to 2560x1600@60Hz or OLED 1920x1200@120Hz, whatever floats your boat.
    Seems pretty pointless to spend a lot of money for 1920x1200 IPS right now...

    i have a dieing trinitron thats well over its half life but it still looks better than a TN and about the same as an IPS, but i go for an IPS now i will get a sideways upgrade that will last, but if i wait for a 120hrz they will probly be a TN (but might look good from tech advances) and i dont think that 16x10 will be made any more

    so my problem is that with a 60hrz lcd im almost garantied ghosting and input lag but if i wait then i will most likely get stuck with a 16:9 and it might not have good color. they both seam like bad options but my monitor is dieing.

    If your monitor is dying, I say go for it. My problem with screens which have LED backlighting is that the blacks are too "inky"; the blacks spread too far and sometimes really do go too deep. I have as yet to see an LED screen as good as a true quality 10-bit IPS panel... they just seem to require a bit more refinement to deal with the additional range that they haven't come up with yet. I'm sure it will happen at some point, but they're still too new.

    All IMHO of course, YMMV.

    on tvs that use IPS and led they look fine if not better than a normal lcd ips, its the tn with led that look inked but then there is no flash lighting

    im looking at the nec acusink, that model is s-IPS only

    i just dont see why i cant get a 120hrz ips panel in 1920x1200 they make them for 26" tvs (1080p) in asia so with 16x10 that would be about 28" for a monitor and i would pay like $500-600 for it if they existed. and dual link dvi-i supports 1920x1200 @ 120hrz its the maximum resolution for 120hrz

    If you're willing to go 23" vs 24", there are e-IPS panel monitors now trickling onto the market, the first of which is NEC's EA231WMi which is 1920x1080, but it has a whopping 14ms response time. Word is other manufacturers will be using this panel though, such as LG and Apple. NECs are typically high in response time due to the video processing they use for image quality. Another possibility is Doublesight's DS-265W 25.5" IPS panel which has 5ms response and low input lag (less than 1 frame). It's not being made anymore but they are closing them out on their site for $599. You can also get their DS-245W 24" IPS at Buy.com for $485.

    I'm in the same boat. My trusty Iiyama Vision Master Pro 450 CRT seems like it's on the way out - while using it, the screen will suddenly go black for a second and at the same time I hear a bug zapper sound. A new behavior is that often when I try to wake the computer, the screen will stay black, and if I turn it off and on, there's no power light or display. The workaround is to turn it off for about 10 minutes, and then when I turn it on I hear the degaussing sound and the power light and display appear. The monitor has been fine for the past 10 years for gaming, web and programming. I've been avoiding the LCD/LED market until I can guarantee I get something that's reasonably priced for similar CRT performance. But now that the monitor's on the way out and I can't easily buy any of the last known good CRTs, I'm starting to look at the LCD/LED display reviews. I don't do photo editing or movie watching, but for me the new 24" LCD Dell U2410 looks like the best bet. For now I can deal with the monitor issues, so I will wait until after Christmas to seriously start shopping and see if there's anything new on the market or on the horizon that's better than the U2410, and hopefully by then the U2410 price will drop a bit.

    Hm, another reason to wait until after the holidays before buying a U2410 is apparently there is a sRGB dithering bug that's going to require a hardware revision:

    If Dell people are saying the incident rate is so high don't bother exchanging yet for another U2410, probably not a good time to buy, either.
