Re: Is a 22 inch monitor poor to play games ?
A few tips for a good gaming monitor:
Look for a monitor that has a quick response time..ie the time it takes
a pixel to go from black to white and back again. The faster the
response time the less blurring and ghosting you will experience during
action sequences. A good gaming monitor has a response time of 3ms or
To relieve eye strain, look for a monitor with a high refresh rate. The
refresh rate on a monitor is the amount of times that the hardware draws
information from a source. PC monitors go as high as 120hz while some
newer HD TVs go up to 240hz. A good gaming monitor has a 120hz refresh
Contrast ratio measures the darkest color that a monitor can
produce...blackest black vs whitest white. In general the higher the
contrast ratio, the better the color.
Consider an LED Monitor (uses Light Emitting Diodes for backlight and
consumes up to 40% less energy than LCD monitor), since they are less
strenuous on your eyes...especially for gaming... than are LCD
As for size, 22" is good for gamers who prefer to sit close to the
screen. 24-27+ are good for sitting further away from screen...in a
lounge chair for example.
Lastly, I prefer either Viewsonic or Samsung for gaming monitor. But
what looks good to me might not look good to you. I suggest you visit
local retailer(s) and look at different monitors in action...some
retailers allow you to test drive, so bring your favorite game with you.
