Good Morning All

Im really itching to buy this monitor and have read various threads on it!

I just want a bit of reasurance that if I buy this monitor i wont instantly hate it while gaming due to ghoasting etc.

Iv had a 17" TFT befor approx 3 years ago and I hated it....luckily for me it died after a week anyway, and because of that it put me right off TFTs :rolleyes:


But the N91W is sooo lush.

neil :)


sorry if this has been confirmed already but I think iv only seen MRK say it was ok for gaming.

edit


also does it do that 1:1 thingy where it will change back to 4:3 for unsupported games :)

lol I was asking about a 19" widescreen :) not a 20" which cost a £100 more which I cant afford.


And what is it like for gaming? :)....(N91W)

oh and does it do 1:1 mapping?

I also wasn't willing to spend over £100 on a 20" so went for the N91W...

It's my first TFT at home and I so far really like it. Played a number of games on it, and have thus far encountered only one problem, and that was with Team Fortress Classic. But all I had to do there was ensure I set that game to 60fps to prevent the tearing I was encountering.

A couple of other titles haver required manual settings to get widescreen.

Thus far very impressed.

I've also tried VGA and DVI and case see no difference!

Ideal...another happy customer :)


just tried my games at 1600/900 as i couldnt select 1440/900 to see what performance hit it would make as i was a bit worried if my gpu wasnt up for it....and it hardly made any difference :cool:


can I ask a favour Neil....can you measure the the screen diameter for me height and width just to compare with my standard 19" crt...just the actual screen cheeers :)

Cambridge, or somewhere else in the world
I too was worried about the height of my N19W, but it was unfounded. The height is not much bigger than the 17" crt I've been using for the past 5 years, but the extra width is fantastic.
I'm playing a lot of Oblivion and it is great on that. At 1440x900 the picture is great. I've only a X800XT/PE, (only he says, not that long agon that was a beast of a card) but apart from HDR I've everything maxed and it looks very good. (HDR isn't available for this gpu with oblivion :( )

Well iv finally got around to using it! and I must say it took a bit to get used to. The contrast and brightness were a pain to get to how I like it and the picture could do with a bit more colour imo, also i find the text is a lot thinnner then it was on my crt but all of this wont take long to get used to. Gaming is fine but I find it harder on the eyes due to the loss of focus when looking around or playing fast car games like TrackMania, I even notice this on the desktop when dragging windows! even at slow speeds. I cant really coment on video play back as I got issues with it due to the latest official nvidia drivers....will either roll them back or try the beta ones.


All in all, even though iv moaned a lot :p I do actually love the monitor and all the above comments just take a little while to get used to I suppose :)

:o what keyboard is that ^ ?!


As for the topic, I have the N91W as you mayw ell know :) well, had!

I just ordered a 2007WFP for an additional £150 after returning the Hyundai. I had absolutely no gripes with the Hyundai other than when reading black test on a white BG, the text was razor sharp, so much so that it becomes a curse for people who read a lot as it starts to cause eye fatigue after proonged reading :p

In games though and movies this shines, no ghosting in /anything/ and no mearing, everything is perfect - For photos it is also just as good - no problems in these areas which is what it's designed for clearly.

You won't gow rong with it. The backlight is also fairly even compared to other screens.

I bought the Dell for £302 (offer on dells UK site ends today and I really needed 1680x1050 so I pretty much had to return the Hyundai in that respect.

P.S. I only play FPS games and had no issues with the Hyundai :) I am pwn-hard on cs:s with widescreen ¬_______________¬

Hi MRK the keyboard is a Speed Link Metal Keyboard! it is lovely to use and its cheap as chips!! thou Iv just replaced it today for a Logitech S510 combo as I miss having a cordless keyboard. I know what you mean about the black writing I guess that is another way to describe it "sharp".

Good luck with the new monitor...ya jammy sod :)

I was also considering this monitor but ive heard that widescreen resolutions can slow down the framerate of games, on the system im building I dont know if there will be much of a problem as im getting an ATI 1950 but id prefer to be getting as fast a framerate as possible so could you help me with this?

You've heard wrong entirely, my framerates have in fact gone up after updating my gfx drivers, I get mroe fps now in widescreen than I was getting with 1280x1024 in CS:S for example and any differences are mrginal (5fps at most) on any modern gfx card.

The same goes for every ther game, tomb raider legend with everything up (minus next gen as even the developer stated it's broken) gets around 100fps average.

There is absolutely no reason to not go WS with regards to framerate at all :)


Most modern gfx cards (gf 6800GT and up iirc) suffer virtually no performance hit either when you increase the resolution.

Glad to know the truth finally, also the specs say 5ms GTG Response Time (8ms BTB) but I dont actually know what GTG or BTB mean
