Meh, I prefer to stick with what I know even if it costs me more. But Newegg has been slipping. I've had a few problems with them on this build that I've not had before. Twice I got an open box when it shouldn't have been. My case was opened, and so was my mobo. The case had issues, but so far the mobo seems fine. I'll find out for sure once I get my gpu and monitor.

Speaking of which, it's looking like Wednesday or Thursday on those. The part I hate worst about building is waiting for shipping!

Well, my new Planar got here today and I've been playing with it. I'm not coming from a previous 120Hz monitor so I can't compare in that area. But I can say that the difference of 60Hz vs. 120Hz is night and day!

I've been playing around with the settings and I personally found 65 contrast to be a good setting for no ghosting and crosstalk. There "might" still be some, but I can't see any. I don't consider myself to be an expert on the issue though.

Overall I am very pleased with the monitor and I look forward to getting my other 2 soon. But first I need to order my second GPU in about a week. That's going to eat another $600 so it will be at least 2-4 weeks before I get around to getting my other 2 Planars.

Have you noticed the screen tearing? I see it at when scrolling a webpage occasionally. A couple of people at [H] have noticed it as well.

Nothing here. But I haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet since I'm also in the middle of overclocking. I'll keep my eyes peeled though.

Still the same story. I'm not experiencing any sort of tearing at all. I've ran a couple of game benchmarks and have been browsing the web. No tearing whatsoever.

Hey guys,

I hate to bump an older thread, although I was wondering how you both are liking your Planar sa2311w monitor. I am strongly considering one in the next few days as I have been trying to select the best 120hz monitor for me. (someone who will do 3d only 5% of the time). The only draw back of this monitor I could see was possible input lag.

I like the matte finish and the planar name. Some have screen tearing issues, but Planar is fixing them for free if that is the case. So I just wanted to see if you guys are still enjoying your purchase, or if you would take another route if you could do it over again.

I run SLI 460gtx cards and play lots of games. I figure I will have no issues getting 60+ fps on SWTOR, or LoL ... may not get that on BF3, but overall I am thinking 120hz is the way to go while the money is available to me.

I like mine. I haven't noticed any input lag. 10ms is the reported average and that is one of the lowest reports for 120Hz monitors. Only a couple of other 120Hz monitors have lower input lag (BenQ for one), but have inferior imaging quality.

The only thing I have noticed that isn't perfect with mine is there is a little backlight bleed at the top and bottom. But nothing that would make me want to RMA it. I sometimes play space simulation games and I can only see it if I really look for it.
