    Of an Iiyama E431S TFT monitor ...

    Hmmmm

    Response time 16ms, the picture is SO sharp its mad. I have to change my opinion on TFT's after getting one of these. Oh and NO dead pixels!

    I still like CRT's - they're great for exercising with (and a whole lot cheaper!)

    I'm still debating what I'm going to replace my CRT with..

    maybe the big 21" viewsonic or a couple of 17" as a dual setup..

    I was disappointed in my 19 Planar (samsung) 191T for gaming.

    I had to buy a new 21" Trinitron CRT and bring the the 19" flat to work. I love the 19" for work... nice sharp picture, ZERO dead pixels, easy on the eyes.

    But for gaming, I'm going to wait until my 21" trinitron dies, before I get another flat panel, by then they should have response times fast enough for me.

    Can you really tell that the moniter is bad from a couple of ms' in response time?

    I have a carp 17" CRT and it is not too sharp, infact pants. But for gaming i didnt notice any different from a HP 15" CRT.

    or is it only TFT's that have a problem with response?

    Heh, got it from Aria at £267.00 + VAT, I got it through the company I work for, thus no VAT. Thing is, they owe me money for some bits I have given them £200 worth, so paid only £67 + £7 delivery

    Only TFT's & LCD's have a problem with gaming. B/c its like they are made up of thousands of little light bulbs that glow (like after your turn off a normal bulb it takes a second for it to stop glowing). Same type of principle.
    So the flat screens sometimes "ghost" colors/things dont change fast enough and you can see traces... or as your cursor moves you can see a trail.


    Where CRT's shoot the light out, kinda like a laser from the back. At like 120 times a second. +- depending on refresh rate.

    Cheaper moniters do not have as high of refresh rates at higher resolutions... but even the crappiest of CRT's are still faster than flat screens. However if they are too cheap you can get a headache b/c your brain can percieve the flashing and it bugs it.

    Well congrats on the el cheapo monitor Flanderz, ....ya bast

    On a serious note the current tft market is becoming very favorable - tft's have dropped very low in price. I think the lowest i have noticed

    15" - £189 - ARGOS
    17" - £220 - ARGOS

    obviously these are pieces of rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish and are to be avoided, but with lcds in every-other car and even in WASHING MACHINES, volume can only go up and price can only go down.

    Apart from a slight rise over the next two months due t a tft shortage they say.....

    apart from that......down.

    Which is good for me cos personally i aint replacing my ADI 19" trinitron 1600x1200 85hz

    with anything less than a 19/20" 1600x1200 16ms lcd. And those still cost 1300 quid. Sure you can get 19" now for 450 quid from komplett........but i aint dropping to 1280 for no mofo. The bastard is i'm so poor i just had to move back in with my Dad......


    rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish

    Easy now, F
    Do you think when Jesus comes back..... he ever wants to see another cross.......? *{God bless you Bill}
