Samsung S27A950D 120Hz - Page 10

post #91 of 150
I had the BenQ 120hz monitor for a couple of days and returned it. Although it had excellent speed (minimal input lag), I could never get the colors on it to anywhere near comfortable.

Also I had come from a 27" Samsung LCD down to the 23" BenQ and miss the size. Picking up my Samsung 950D in the morning.

We're going to need a new adapter to support that bandwidth. 1080P @ 120hz maxes out DVI-D. Thunderbolt adapters, possibly.

I need a monitor when I move out in 2 weeks. Which also would work @ 120hz with xbox, so I think I might grab one of these aswell

Robilar can you test the input lag for 950D? Does it match with BenQ 120hz monitor? There're so many different opnions on 950D's input lag, some say good and some say bad, don't know which to believe.

Just picked up the 23'' version yesterday.

Love it. 3D is cool enough. Really enjoying the snappy 120Hz refresh rate.

I certainly will. I'm picking up the Samsung in a couple of hours when the store opens. I played about 3 hours of Bad Company 2 on the BenQ yesterday so I got a good feel for its responsiveness (and got a headache from the way it mangled colors.

Hi everyone!

I badly needed your advice on this. I bought this monitor just today. The selling point for me here is the 120hz refresh rate. However, when I looked at ATI CCC it says that the maximum refresh rate is only 60hz. Further, when I tried to change the refresh rate in the screen resolution, the maximum hz listed is only up tp 60hz. I hooked this monitor via dual link cable.

Please need some advice...

Thanks!
