Samsungs new 120hz monitors are way better than 2233RZ S23A700D - cheapest 23" 120hz WITH 3D glasses. But if you have more money S23A750D or S27A750D is awesome both on design and performance :P I'm currently using S27A750D Which is 27" and really just epic for watching 3D movies such as Avatar and performance in Gaming is in my opinion identical to the one you get from CRT. in some ways i'd say it's even better.

Samsung S23A700D this one looks really good too :) hmm..i dont have a lot of money so im picking "cheaper ones"
2012-04-20 09:28:03
Yeah i can understand that. The advantage of S23A700D is that it's with Dual-DVI as older models were, instead of DisplayPort, which is still not so common on all Graphics card. the Display should be identical on all monitors as well so no extra performance gained by going 750 or 950 :P

thanks for you opinion..some more opinions?
2012-04-20 10:20:16
with dual-dvi you can only get 120hz on 640x480 with 4:3 aspectratio :( me and my friend both have one and we have the same problem..
2012-04-20 13:39:13
About that S27A750D - do you have 120hz in all resolutions? I am thinking about buying for work and gaming, but it's a bit expensive. :/

Thanks.
2012-04-20 10:50:19
It's expensive, but yes it runs 100/120hz in everything from 640x480 to 1920x1080

benq XL2410T is perfectly to play counter strike. i love it !
2012-04-20 10:25:30
but it has shitty colors!
2012-04-20 10:46:30
I love the colors
2012-04-20 11:18:09
Could you share your settings please? I'm trying to get decent colours so i won't be flashed for too long, could you help me?
2012-04-20 12:38:17
I use the default value 2
2012-04-20 13:55:33
what about XL2420T colors? better or not?
2012-04-20 11:49:54
I love XL2420T i own one right now, it's amazing. The image scalling feature is great for cs, also you can play 120hz @ 640x480 so.

Really recommend, best gaming monitor out there.
2012-04-20 12:36:20
and its able to play 100hz @ 640? and 75 works too?
2012-04-20 13:17:50
and can i play with with 4:3 aspect ratio (black stripes on sides). ?
2012-04-20 13:49:33
Yeah, you can.
2012-04-20 13:55:06
last question for you : its able to play 100hz @ 640? and 75 works too?
2012-04-20 14:06:58
Yes it does. You need to use Dual link dvi to achieve 120hz, it comes with the monitor.

The monitor is optimized for cs players since it was made with help of spawn and heaton. Every refresh rate is possible on any kind of resolution.

You don't see a stupid sales trick when it's spitting you in the face, do you? of course the monitor isn't optimized any more to cs than it is for battlefield, or any other game for that matter. Ok it has 120hz but that's mainly a 3D function ;)
2012-04-20 15:53:38
Yes i do know it's all about a marketing thing but i was talking about the scaling option which is great for cs.. You can choose from 17" to 23", like having a 17"monitor inside a 24". And this monitor is the best you can find for gaming atm in this price range and with this specs.
2012-04-20 17:34:29
No it isn't.
2012-04-20 17:36:58
Care to elaborate? Give me some examples :)
2012-04-20 18:13:49
what about XL2420T colors? better or not?

viewsonic vx2268wm is the best
2012-04-20 13:22:05
I have the Samsung SyncMaster SA700, and its basically the updated 2233rz. Its a tad bigger, and the response time is also slightly faster.

The disadvantage is that you have to buy a new DVI cable for it, because you can only play 120hz on 640x480 with 4:3 aspect ratio (blackbars on both sides). If you dont like that, you should buy a DVI cable.
2012-04-20 13:40:48
makes no sense to me that u can only play 640x480@120hz with SA700D i have 2 friends who have those monitors and they use default cables with 120hz@1920x1080 ;)
2012-04-20 14:34:18
must be my gfx card then or something

i have ati radeon 5770, its a bit old but i manage medium/high on battlefield 3
2012-04-20 15:17:10
that shouldn't be the problem either...:(
2012-04-20 15:49:14
i like to play with blackbars :)
2012-04-22 14:48:25
Go for CRT:)
2012-04-20 13:43:37
i dont want crt
2012-04-20 15:22:57
Samsung 2233RZ
2012-04-20 14:38:14

2012-04-20 16:14:50
