    Hi HellsJester and N0REGARD4LIFE,

    Thanks, but this model was announced way back in mid 2012, right? How's this compared to the BenQ XL2411T.

    Pardon me for asking, my 40inch EX520 can display 1080p but probably lose out on refresh rate? Or not?

    I got a 27in Samsung SyncMaster S27B350 in prep for the PS4. I think you can get a refurbished one from tiger direct for less then 250.

    Is a Bravia LED TV good for next-gen? Not sure if serious.

    It's a Bravia, the only thing you can do wrong there is pay a lot of money for it.

    I think he was fishing for compliments to justify the purchase or something.

    Well if you weren't fishing, that's an excellent TV!

    Alright then, in that case i'll hold on the thought, and be contented with the EX520 and see how it performs with the console.

    Thanks!

    I think you'll enjoy the Sony Bravia. It's a solid TV.

    Yeah, imo the panel is nice, and it's matte.

    Hello Itachi.

    I signed up specifically to ask you a few questions regarding your new monitor. The Asus MX279H to be exact.

    You see, i'm also looking for a monitor for the upcoming consoles but it's proving to be more difficult to find an ideal one for myself than i previously imagined lol...

    How's your new monitor treating you so far by the way? Do you have any regrets buying it or is it everything you'd hoped for?

    Does it ever get blurry/fuzzy when you play a game. Is it sharp and colourful? For instance in the XMB menu and when you play 720p & 1080p games? Does it at anytime lose quality?

    And finally do you prefer the larger 27" screen over the smaller 23.5" screen?


    That's all. Sorry for the random message lol. I just want to be sure before i pull the trigger and purchase this monitor. Many thanks!

    That Asus looking sexy. I use a small Vizio HDTV and I like it because it fits on my desk. I pretty much do everything from my desk so it works, but I may be looking into a LED monitor.

    So i got the Asus MX279H a few days ago purely for console gaming. Hooked my PS3 up to it and it looked like garbage. The XMB menu and every single game looks like poo. Everything is blurry and jaggies are multiplied by 10fold especially when you get into a game. Yes the response time is amazing, but the graphics are pathetic. I've come to the conclusion that computer monitors are meant for computers... NOT FOR CONSOLES!!! Stick to big screen TV's gentlemen!

    PS: I was lucky enough to return the screen with allmy money back yesterday. I was also wondering why Itachi wasn't replying to this thread and any of my PM's regarding this monitor. It all becomes clear now...

    Monitors dont have graphics. Did you bother calibrating it? Itachi loves his.

    I have a 32" 720p HDTV and I sit just about 2 to 3 (max) feet away, typically 2.3 feet is optimal for me. Any further and it just doesn't feel right for gaming (works for movies though). I honestly don't know how a bigger set, like a 42" and above, would work for me as I like to sit close.

    However if you are using a 22" 720p HDTV, and are used to that, I suggest a 24" 1080p monitor. You can get some pretty dang good ones for under $200 too. And monitors blow away HDTV's by far too, as they are meant to be extremely detailed while sitting really close

    Asus monitors I have found to be pretty decent, and they are priced right too.

    For example: http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VS248H-P-...1080p++monitor

    Got this for a customer and it is a very nice monitor. 1080p, 50 million:1 contrast ratio (likely exaggerated, but still impressive), LED backlight, 2ms refresh rate and under $200.

    When you say calibrating, do you mean bumping up the sharpness, contrast and so on, on the monitor? If so, then yeah i fiddled with all of the settings and nothing made it look even remotely better.

    I think it has to do with console scalers and monitors not having decent in-built scalers. TV's on the other hand do, consoles will look more crisp and clear on a 80inch TV when compared to a 24" top of the line monitor, because of the TV having much better in-built scaling software/hardware.
