I would love one too. But frankly, my OCD doesn't quite like used products that well.

OCD is a state of the mind. Im sure if you put them side by side youd walk home with a decent CRT.

^I'm not sure about the situation in canada, but high end CRTs are very difficult to find anywhere but eastern USA From what I've seen and heard. High end CRTs pop up once per 3 months here in finland on auctin sites, and by that I mean 21" models, not the even better GDM-Fw900 and the rebrands. I would assume at least some parts of the canada are similar.

It's not always a viable option, since supply is extremely low.

Nope. You don't quite understand OCD then.

The U2311h can do 75hz with custom drivers, but that results in a slower pixel response = more ghosting.
This is incorrect.

Link me to an IPS monitor that can do above 60hz at factory settings and I'll retract that statement.

The maker of the U2311h hack commented that it wasn't worth it because pixel responsiveness went down the drain. Can't find the link to that one though.

Also, any 60hz monitor using overdrive technology will suffer from increased refresh rates. http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles...ve_at_75hz.htm


Anyhow that is off topic.


If you went with that viewsonic 120hz model, the price would also allow you to add some similar 60hz TN next to it for dual monitors with the budget of the single IPS monitor there. Something to consider.

CRT's are great there's no denying that, but the size and weight is completely impractical for most.

Personally I would go 120hz over an IPS, I work with imac's (i'm not sure how good their panels are compared to others) and it's really not that much more impressive (if any) than a regular LCD with a glossy screen.

Honestly, I haven't quite inspected enough IPS panels to really say if there is much difference between a high quality TN panel and an IPS given the normal viewing angel. But out of the ones I've been around, I'd have to agree; which are ones that don't go into the higher budgets.

I was talking to a few buddies today, them just giving their opinion, and it comes down to what I'm going to value most in the given budget. An $800+ IPS is out of the question. I wonder what is the best 120 Hz panel in the 300 CAD range?

If u want a 400-500$ monitors, u can buy an high end IPS like Asus PA246Q, that are more faster than all better e-ips monitors and had much more quality.

I think 400-500 might be pushing it. I'm going to be setting aside a grand for PC upgrades for the next few years which is going to be eatten up by 2 new GPUs, Bulldozer, and this new monitor. So 300 CAD seems to be my max.
