Ordered a new monitor
 
I went to the store to look at computer monitors. Well, lo and behold, the fancy IPS LED did look the best.

I decided on this one and ordered it.

I'm happy with the price, but sure enough, somewhere in the bill there is an $8 Environmental Disposal Fee. WTF? I'm not disposing of anything.

Oh, well...

That IPS LED is good stuff for graphics (I'll do a lot of that: engineering graphics), and photo editing (cool). But supposedly, refresh rate is slow compared to non-IPS.

So my concern is that the occasional movie I'll watch will have some ghosting. I don't play games, so that's not an issue.

It's to bad they no longer make many 1920x1200 instead of 1080 , especially on laptops , they are impossible to find . The monitors I have are all 1650x1050 or 1920x1200 16:10 ratio , much less scrolling , more on screen , but they are hard to find .
14ms is the refresh rate on your monitor ? seems very slow , but would not make a difference unless watching football or gaming , but why sooo slow ? Is there some advantage ? 5-8 ms is the average rate .
I really dread having to change my laptop , has the 16:10 ratio 1650x1050 , when it goes I' m going to be pissed , hate 16:9 , not enough screen , to much scrolling .
Wouldn't you rather have a 16:10 screen on your work laptop ? What screen ratio you use at work ?

Just got it. That was fast.
Incredible monitor. Actually, refresh time is 8ms. Not bad. But the picture is incredible.
The 16:9 ratio doesn't bother me.

LOL. Will do.
