Hey guys i’m new here and fairly new to the console world, i got a few questions. I recently just got a new tv (toshiba 40G300U) and tried to play an fps and i couldn’t aim for my life and i’m assuming there will be insane delay once i get my hands on mvc3 and ssf4, I’ve recently read about the hd lag tv faq http://shoryuken.com/f177/new-definitive-hdtv-lag-faq-174085/ and i’ve noticed alot of people referring the asus vh236h the one that evo used.
If you’re not planning on PC gaming then 120hz on that panel is useless. Consoles won’t utilize it. This isn’t TV 120hz, this is REAL 120hz, as in not interpolated. I’d get something cheaper unless you want the 120hz for smooth PC games/computer usage. Also, HDMI doesn’t cause lag it’s the TV’s post processing that causes lag. That panel should be fine though.
I bought one of the 120hz LCDs when they first came out, quit gaming and I sold it, I really regret it though. I <3 my CRT but when I moved I just couldn’t fit it anywhere and I’m still trying to find an FW900.
I’m on the VW246H and it’s a fantastic monitor but yeah I miss 100-120hz :C
Oh and even if consoles could utilize 120hz, none of them can run their games at the 120FPS needed to see any difference.
also is there a youtube vid or do u have instructions what you want me to do with this vga cable? i’m just browsing youtube and there’s all kinds of videos. Sorry if i sound retarded, i’m just new to all this stuff.
I have this monitor and I dig it. 120Hz is awesome, even for desktop use. It’s hard to go back to 60Hz.
The monitor has no VGA input; DVI-D, HDMI, and component. The DVI-D is dedicated for 120Hz input. In other words your PC is the only thing you’ll want to use via DVI-D. It must use the DVI-D cable that it comes with in order to meet the bandwidth requirements for 120Hz.
There are 2 models: VG236H (with NVIDIA 3D kit) and VG236HE (without 3D kit). If you go 3D, you’ll have to have a compatible NVIDIA video card. Also keep in mind that this monitor has a glossy screen, some people hate glossy–I personally like it.
As far as input lag. One reviewer online is reporting some inconsistent input lag up to 0-12ms. While the majority say there is little to none. In my subjective tests I’ve not noticed anything. I’ve got my 360 connect via HDMI. I’m not the best at landing 1 frame links in SSF4, but I’m no worse than I’m in the arcade–I’m just not that good to tell. I am pretty damn good at COD, and my game has only gotten much better because of the fluidity of 120Hz.
so i just got the 120hz monitor. Theres like little to no delay at all which is a huge improvement from that toshiba tv i had, funny cuz it just broke yesterday anyways. I’m using it for my pc and ps3, while using it on the pc i’m quite annoyed that theres a green tint and i tried playing around with the rgb settings and you can’t really get rid of it and if you do red or blue colors just replace it. I use my computer for photoshop etc also so i’d like accurate colors.
On the PS3 it’s not noticeable and could care less but anyways i just spent $400 on it and wondering was it really worth it? i’m thinking of maybe returning it and going back to my old monitor and just get a Asus vh236h or Asus VE247H, anyone have any info on the VE247h? or overall any color issues with these monitors? just curious
