This is in order to make a separate video from my best monitor of 2007 2016 to 2017 made for gamers so the reason I’m doing this video is in order to make it separate and also to go through different technologies oh go as fast as I can because I don’t want to bore you with a 30 minute video.
I could ramble on for a couple of hours about different technologies but let’s get straight into it first of all what you want to look for is the.
Price now the price will determine the technology found within it and in terms of the overall monitor itself so let’s get into what that means first of all you’ve got the design and build you’ve got monitors that gather height adjustment tilt adjustments can move around have webcams little bezel you name it that can affect the price next up you got the resolution 1080p 2k 4k 5k 8k maybe one day this makes a massive.
Difference in terms of the price and probably arguably the biggest.
Difference in price often 1080p is the standard in terms of gaming monitors but nowadays you can find 2k as a sweet spot when I say 2k I mean 2 5 600 times 144 oh the reason I say.
It’s a sweet spot is because technology’s moved on so far that now at 2k you’re gonna find 144 Hertz monitors that I have got a low response time and low input lag whereas previously you only find a maximum refresh rate of 60 Hertz 2k now that’s no longer the case and in all honesty when once you go to K you never go back II so that’s what I would say next up you’ve got the aspect ratio aspect.
Ratio is pretty much normal and 16 by 9 but if you’re getting a curve display which is long and safe a 5-inch monitor then you’re gonna be looking at 21 by 9 of 21 by.
10 aspect ratio do bear that in mind because some games a little bit picky with aspect ratio but the norm now is 16 by 9 next up you got refresh rate which is arguably the biggest one when it comes to gamers the average I was it the normal refresh rate you’ll expect for a monster is 60 Hertz that is what a NTSC and what a TV will do and you’ve got all different types.
Of panels nowadays that do 60 Hertz however the better more gaming specific mortars will be able to do 129 244 Hertz 165 or 180 or even 200 Hertz it might be unheard of it might be crazy to think that sort of Hertz is possible but now they say is and as we move forwards you’ll find higher refresh rate monitors pretty much normal I bet one day will be 144 Hertz for everyone.
Even if you’re just going to be browsing Facebook the point is refresh rate makes a difference and the reason why makes the difference is because how quickly the monitor can respond to a certain image and how fluid it.
Higher refresh rate that it will be the quicker you’ll see a person appear on your screen versus a 60 Hertz one and that.
Means it’ll give you a competitive edge over the person appearing here versus there hopefully that makes sense next up you’ve got the panel technology nowadays you’ve got.
TN IPS and pls pls and IPS are the same thing just made by different manufacturers and TN is a different type of technology now these technologies are made for LED monitors.
Nowadays all you’ve got is LED monitors and is to be it’s also to be noted that it’s led on an LCD screen so you’ll see LED LCD pretty much pace it most places on manufacturers.
Websites but to make it simple is an LED monitor these anything LEDs have different ways of displaying their their pixels and their colors.
And by this is the different type of technologies you’ve got now TN is known to be a low response time lower input like worst colors worse viewing.
Angles which really doesn’t make that much of difference and nowadays because you’re gonna be sitting in front of your piece your PC or your monitor but also.
The biggest one is a fact they’re cheaper to manufacture and therefore cheaper to buy IPS pls panels on the other hand I’ve got fantastic colors much better viewing angles and a much more color accurate but they’ve got a higher response time which is not.
Liked and a higher input lag which is also not like and they’re very much more expensive nowadays however the two technology are getting closer and closer together you’ve got ten pounds was much better colors and much better viewing.
Angles and you’ve got IPS which are getting much cheaper and of much better suited for gamers but nevertheless you should made.
A distinction between the two next up we’ve got a response type.
Of input lag now these two are very hard to explain it will be very hard for me to explain it in a short time I would highly highly suggest you guys Google what is response time on monitor what is input.
Know to make it as simple as I can response time is the way the monitor can shift from one color to.
Another often the quote of response time is G to G which is great to gray the real world test is black.
To white and often you’ll find those tests on certain websites like TFT central which we go into depth about how these panels can display one color or the other the reason it makes difference is because if you’re shifting from one scene to the other or even if you’re just looking left and right on FPS game or any other any game then you’ll note that a lower response time monitor were able to real change that pixel much easier unfortunately this.
Is not always the case and the quoted response time is very much different from the real-world response time and you’ve got a thing called overdrive which is found on most.
Monitors because all it does is reduce that response time that coded response time down even further unfortunately when you do that you get thing called ghosting or even negative ghosting or overshoot as some people might call it and that creates a sort of blur image behind.
The actual image of supposed to see you’ll be able to see some tests that I do on monitor reviews all you be able to see again like TFT central or one of those people who do that and they’ll be able to give you a much more accurate description of what it is and a way of how you can see on your monitor now input lag and you saw I.
Just click my mouse there input lag is difference.
Between how fast your input which is your mouse often takes to.
Respond to your the more to take to respond to your input in other words if you move.
