The LCD Monitors Thread: Tips, Tricks, Tweaks, New Products and Reviews

  • Good PM sirs, I recently purchased a 24 BENQ rl2455hm. This is the first time I've purchased a Monitor, since I've been using a TVHD since I've been assembling my own rigs. I find it a bit too bright when I'm just browsing on chrome. But when I switch to a game like Dota 2 the brightness seems fine to me. Can you recommend a better setting or tweak to fix this? Or do I have to fix the settings each time I browse? Thanks to those who would reply and help. Good day and God bless.

  • @aby
    available na ba yan sa market?

    Sa October pa ang availability based on the AOC website. Estimated retail price is £99 for the 22-inch model and £129 for the 24-inch model (estimated Php 8K ~ Php 10K).
  • Feedback naman po kung ok ung QNIX QX2710 monitor for 20k? Worth it ba siya?
  • IMHO for QNIX.

    PLS Samsung panel (comparable to IPS)
    27" 1440p
    Best for movies and games due to color production

    Only works with DVI connection
    Need powerful GPU for a smooth game
    Response time maybe an issue (motion blur or ghosting - common in PLS/IPS)
    Input lag maybe an issue especially in FPS games
    Price - Not sure compared to recent monitor models

    Kung may PLS/IPS panel 27" 1440p na G-Sync/FreeSync na same price palagay ko mas sulit un if you have a G-Sync/FreeSync capable card. Again, I'm not updated with the current monitor prices.
  • Guys, need your recommendation.

    Ano po ba ang mas ok. 4k resolution (60hz) monitors or 144hz (1080p) monitors?

    Eto po kc ang example ng pinagpipilian ko:

    BenQ XL2720Z

    ASUS PB287Q

    Need your advise and why?

    Thank you.

    You might want to add this to your options:

    BenQ XL2730Z
    <click here for link>

    The BenQ XL2730Z gives you a good balance between both monitors. High refresh rate at 144Hz and high resolution at 2560x1440. As a bonus, if you are using an AMD videocard... it is FreeSync capable so you get variable refresh rate while gaming. Price-wise it is Php 3.9K more expensive than BenQ XL2720Z but in return you get QHD resolution and FreeSync which is worth the price increase.

    Now that R9 FURY is now available (Sapphire R9 FURY TRI-X OC) that would be a good videocard to pair with the BenQ XL2730Z :-)

    My opinion on expensive TN panel monitors:

    If you are going to buy a TN panel monitor then it better have a fast refresh rate (120Hz or 144Hz) or have variable refresh (G-Sync or FreeSync). Otherwise why sacrifice so much on image quality and viewing angles, when you can get an IPS or VA panel monitor that also runs at 60Hz :-)
  • ^ wow! Thank you Sir sleepygeepy for the best and accurate answer. :)

    Btw Sir, hindi kc ako masyado techy pagdating sa monitors. Ano po ba ibig sabihin ng "TN panel monitors?
  • Mejo OT.

    Iniisip and/or plan to change VC to AMD cards. Maybe 390x, from n770 lightning SLI. Me mga forums kc akong nababasa na disappointed si nvidia pagdating ke dx12.
  • ^ imo hold mo muna yung 770 sli mu then wait for next card of nvidia matagal pa namn ang dx12 games
  • Good pm, can someone recommend me good monitors worth 12k?

    Btw Sir, hindi kc ako masyado techy pagdating sa monitors. Ano po ba ibig sabihin ng "TN panel monitors?

    Hi sir, yung TN panel stands for "Twisted Nematic" panel. Siya yung pinaka common na panel na ginagamit sa LCD monitor and also the cheapest. Makikita mo siya madalas ginagamit sa mga entry level or budget level na LCD monitor. Yung advantage ng TN panel mabilis ang pixel response times niya (usually 1 millisecond). So maganda siya for gaming dahil walang ghosting or blurring ang nangyayari kapag fast side-to-side movement sa games.

    Problem lang sa TN panel meron siyang color shift kapag ni-view mo ang monitor at off-center angles. So kapag ni-view mo ang monitor from the top, bottom, or from the sides, nag-iiba ang kulay ng image so dapat centered palagi ang view mo sa monitor. Kaya din hindi ginagamit ang TN panel sa mga HDTV, instrument panel, or digital signboard dahil kapag hindi centered ang view mo, paiba-iba ang kulay hehe!

    Ang isa pang common sa TN panel ay yung colors niya medyo dull ("matabang") at mababa ang contrast compared sa monitor na gumagamit ngh IPS panel or VA panel. So kung hindi mo naman kailangan yung fast response times or fast refresh rate, mas recommended na gumamit nalang ng IPS panel or VA panel monitor.

    Sa ngayon ang TN panel monitors palang ang tried and tested sa mabilis na refresh rate tulad ng 120Hz or 144Hz, kaya mga gaming monitor madalas high-end TN panel ang gamit. Pero may lumalabas narin na mga bagong IPS and VA panel na kaya narin ang mabilis na refresh rate.

    Iniisip and/or plan to change VC to AMD cards. Maybe 390x, from n770 lightning SLI. Me mga forums kc akong nababasa na disappointed si nvidia pagdating ke dx12.

    Malakas parin ang GTX 770 SLI setup mo so baka gusto mo mag 1080p G-Sync monitor nalang para hindi ka na magpalit ng videocard? Yung BenQ XL2420G ang pinaka-affordable na G-Sync monitor ngayon at Php 27K.

    Tungkol sa DX12, yung Nvidia videocards walang async compute capability so may possibility na kapag may game na lumabas na heavy sa async compute, mas mababa ang performance ng Nvidia GPU. Pero sa ngayon wala pa naman available na DirectX 12 na game maliban sa Ark: Survival Evolved. Baka by the time na common na ang DirectX 12 games, may bagong Nvidia ang AMD GPU's na available tulad ng Nvidia Pascal at AMD Greenland so hindi na siya issue. Also mga game developer nag o-optimize ng game depende sa videocard so in real-use hindi din malaki ang performance impact.

    Para sa akin hindi siya malaking issue at whether mag Nvidia or AMD videocard ka ok parin gamitin for DirectX 12 games.
  • +1 sa ips or va panels na 120hz+. Asus MG279Q sana mura lang paglabas. :-) ung qnix q2710 120hz oc daw as per specs but based on reviews marami na dropped frames sa refresh rate na un.
