I'm Just trying to find out what the best IPS monitor for me for gaming really is! I understand that IPS is not as good for gaming as TN Panels are but I would really like the colours and better picture quality. I am thinking about getting a IPS and TN panel and having the best of both worlds, but I am unsure yet, And if the IPS did everything I wanted well then I wouldn't need another one anyway!


I prefer the looks of Asus, Samsung and AOC so they are my preferred makes. Thin bezels would be best as I think they look much better. I would like to try find the best one that is good with gaming, Less ghosting, Faster, Less lag, Lowest response time etc.


I'm also wanting to connect my Xbox 360 Slim to the monitor so it would need to be able to work with that and play it well with as less ghosting, lag time and response time as I will be playing a lot of FPS and Racing games on there. I want the type where you cannot see reflections and light reflections as this would bug me! I'm trying to avoid this so called 'IPS Glow' And Backlight bleeding monitors as much as possible!


There is three monitors I have been looking at so far, But I would love to see what recommendations you can share with me.


The three monitors are as follows


AOC i2369Vm




Samsung LS24D690




Asus MX239H




The Samsung one says that it 'Boasts a gaming mode which helps to make gaming even better on your PC' Which I was unsure about, But I cannot find any reviews on that one at all!


I would prefer 23'' or 24'' In 1920 x 1080. I don't know weather the 27'' Would be too big and I've read about and seen that 27'' Does not look as good in 1920 x 1080 as a 24'' Monitor does, And I don't see the point in getting more than 1920 x 1080 as my Xbox 360 cannot go above that. ( Feel free to recommend a 27'' but I doubt I would get one, At least until I have seen how big they are in the shops )


I hope you can help me find my perfect monitor, Sorry this is so long but I've been looking for a while now, And I never knew that the choice could be so hard!!

The ASUS MX239H is an excellent monitor for the money. B&H has it for $199 with free shipping.

I am seriously considering the Asus MX239H. Does anyone here have any experience with this monitor and gaming? How bad is input lag? How bad is ghosting and blurring? Or are they not really notiable?
