I am going to buy an LCD monitor. I use AutoCad all day long and plays games all night. A big mixture of games but the FPS games are probably hardest on the monitor.
I know gamers don't like LCD monitors. I'm doing it anyway, I'm hoping the LCD will be less painful to my eyes.
I am looking at the Acer 1951B
Brightness: 400 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio: 700:1
Display Colours: 16.7 Million
Display Type: SXGA
The other choice is this new Viewsonic VX922
Brightness 270 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio 650:1
Response Time 2ms gray-to-gray (avg.); 2ms white-black-white (typ)
The contrast ratio and the brightness stats are slightly lower on the Viwsonic. I also noticed they don't list Display Color stats for the Viewsonic. This may meen it displays 16.2 million.
If you have 16.7 million colors that is an 8 bit panel right?
Has anyone seen these monitors up close, better yet have you played games on them?
The price is within 30.00 of eachother. I can't decide which to get.
