First of all, hello to all of you!
this is my first post on this beautiful board, i can understand German much more than i can write, so i hope if i use english it won't be a problem
As you can tell from my nickname...my eyes are dry, i get some headaches too, at work i have a 21" CRT (@100Hz) and home a 19" Belinea also @ 100Hz. Basically i'm living my life next to a microwave
I don't want to upgrade to a TFT, i NEED to do it...i owned a 15" HP L1520 about a year ago, it was a blessing!!! I could stare into it for hours without feeling the need to get up every 1/2 hour to rest my eyes (and have a cigarette!). Beautiful image quality, whites were sharp but not hurting at all, darks were sharp and crisp.
But i happen to game a lot, especially CS (duhh). I used to play in clans, etc...but not anymore because of too much commitment. I still own pretty good, enjoying my 20-30 ms pings...
CS on the old 15" TFT was strange...i remember using fps_max 60 and vsync ON in order to get a stable picture, without tearing. Moving to a 19" CRT was a blessing for CS, but a pain for my eyes...now i am willing to sacrifice PURE gaming quality for healthier eyes. I am looking at a LCD, preferably 18" or even 19"...
18" : LG 1811B, NEC 1860 SX-BK (i think)
19" : HP L1925 ( i get 20% discount on it) or the new LG 1910P or 1910B
I hope you can help me in some way to make up my mind, and many thanks in advance!!
PS - 2 questions:
1. IPS with 25ms are for SURE better than MVA/TN with 16ms?
2. what is the difference between S-IPS and IPS? (like between the LG1710B and the LG1811B).
(how is that L1910P test coming? any time soon?)
