With the strong influx of flat panel LCD and LED monitors into the market, the debates and arguments between old school CRT and flat panels for gaming is as good as dead.
But as with the way of endings and beginnings, new points for discussions and debates have risen when for-gaming flat screens are being talked about, giving birth to all sorts of questions and considerations when one is out to get a gaming-enhanced flat screen.
Which brand is better? Which model is better? Which brand-model combination brings more bang to one’s buck?
If you’re asking these questions, here are some pointers worth looking into when you’re set and revving up to get your gaming flat panel.
For great colors – look up on a prospect flat panel’s IPS (In-Plane Switching technology) rating. 8 bit flat panels prove to be perfect, but if you’re tight with your budget, a 6 bit can easily deliver crisp and clear colors.
Response Time – this one’s not mind boggling to figure out. The faster a flat panel’s response time, the better it is for gaming.
IPS Types – when talking about IPS, the convention tiers are e-IPS (6 bit) and h-IPS, s-IPS and p-IPS (8 bit). As mentioned, 8 bit flat screens tend to be more expensive than 6 bit, but a number of 6 bit flat screens are known to deliver almost the same quality with their 8 bit counterparts.
Viewing Angle – between IPS conventions, e-IPS panels already offer an enhanced view angle clarity variable for users, with color shifts nearly unnoticeable when shifting viewing angles.
LED VS LCD – the delivery aspect of LEDs and LCDs aren’t really that different, only that LED flat panels consume lesser power compared to LCDs.
Dell, Samsung and ViewSonic are known for quality flat panels, offering quality e-IPS flat panels in reasonable rates.
If you know of other brands out there, or any specific models which are worthy of mentions, drop your comments below.
It’d surely help the many who are certainly confused with which gaming flat panel to get.
