Just looking for some real-world recommendations for a TFT Monitor that can run higher resolutions that 1280x1024.

No too interested in widescreen, but willing to take advice on other peoples thoughts.

So any suggestions.

About 700 budget, cheers, MP.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

If you want to spend 700 quid buy a widescreen.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hope you went for a widescreen in the end. Id recommend the Dell 24", 1920x1200......<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hi Mystic,

EIZO S2000 (20")

or S2100 (21,3")

both 1600x1200 no widescreen. Superb LCDs. Fantastic OSD. Nice design IMHO.

Samsung 204B 20" 1600x1200 or later model in equivalent size. Great monitor for the price.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Gateway FPD2185SW 21" widescreen. Had it for about one year, no problems, very fast and good color. Price has probably come down as well...


Ah, the Gateway 22" Widescreen Model FPD2275W is the new model for this year, for $200 less than what I paid for mine. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'll second the Samsung 204B. It is definitely a great flat panel LCD for the price.

Playing games with small dots in a very high resolution and in a TFT is fantastic if you don't mind not seeing anything at all.

Welcome to miopy blurry world.

Buy a good CRT, unless you want that TFT for static pics or working.

Dux, your so utterly wrong. This game looks better and I can see things better at 1920x1200 on my 24" TFT than I ever could on my Ilyama 513 CRT (the best CRT ever produced!).

For 700 gett a BenQ FP241. Its the best 24" TFT on the market and does 1920x1200 res.

The Dell 24" TFT's have banding problems admitted by Dell and the Samsung 24" has documented 40ms input lag. (you can find most documented problems with most TFT's here http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/forum/)

You should be interested in widescreen gaming MP. Once you've tried it you'll never go back.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Well, IL2 does not support widescreen. So, with widescreen monitor you'll be in disadventage. I'm "forced" to play on laptop (15.4" - 1280×800. It's a pain, but hey i'm adicted.

Ditto. I've used this monitor for almost a year with nothing but high praise.

The Dell 24" widescreen is also a great monitor and you wouldn't lose too much by playing IL2 and would gain a bit of future lifespan as true widescreen support is becoming a given.
