There are a number of "Hazro" monitors that keep on catching my eye..... mostly because of the high-res and the price..... although 10-bit colour cant be a bad thing - and the rest of the specs look good, these are obviously professional grade monitors - but a damned lot cheaper than the bum-raping that Apple will give you for the same spec sheet.http://www.overclockers.co.uk/productli ... y=priceAsc
Never heard of Hazro before, but I imagine that they are a high-end manufacturer and that is why I haven't heard of them, the only thing that would make me think twice is the response time - 6 m/s isn't at all bad, although I don't know if the lies have got any worse over the last few years or whether it is more noticeable on a very high-resolution, large screen.?
On the other hand I have been considering a TV as my next monitor (upgrade/downgrade), there are positives and negatives to take, a TV has a much larger screen - I was thinking 32 or 37 inch, but the resolution is actually a little lower (vertically) than I already have, but it will already have good speakers built in and using HDMI means less clutter, my only real concern is that I have never played computer games on a TV (LCD that is, I haven't even owned a TV for 5-years, its PC or nothing in my world) and I am a little concerned about the response time (again) - surely if fast moving video looks fine then a game will..... or will it.?
Will a good TV be just as good as a good monitor playing games with the only difference being that the TV is much bigger, will I have to get a TV with a higher refresh rate than the standard 60Hz.? Would 100Hz be OK, 200.? 400.? I really don't know - does it make any difference at all if the game is only running at 50Hz.? Can the Graphics card and/or HDMI cable even run the screen at 100/200 or 400Hz (doubtful).? Is the colour reproduction per-pixel as good.? I don't know the answer to many of these questions or even if there are other things that I have not even considered.
Does anyone else here run their PC off of a 32/37 inch 1920x1080 TV.?
PS: Sorry for post hijacking, but as you have already ordered your screen its seems less of an issue, I will happily delete this post and create a new one if you wish asking about the use of TV's in place of monitors - there seems to be much less of an difference here than there used to be - CRT's are dead, 1920x1080 is now the "common" high-ish monitor resolution and many smaller TV's and monitors even share the same panels - HDMI is now a common PC interface and the de-facto TV interface - the lines are now so blurred I find it difficult to see the difference, pun intended
