Nice, hope that someone will find it useful =)

That's a beautiful setup you got there and certainly bonus points for going 5.2 surround (or is it 7.2?). Is your beamer also 120Hz? Somehow the Samsung has more or less replaced my Epson as main screen as I absolutely love the 120Hz. I'd love to upgrade the Epson but besides from saving up some cash there's nothing really usable on the market yet.

I have a question. Do you actually have to be consistently outputting >120 FPS from your GPU to see any tangible benefit from a 120 Hz monitor? Or will the image appear smoother nonetheless? I ask because I am thinking of getting the 750D. And for example on a game like MW3, I have seen that the 6970 only outputs around 80+ FPS so if there is no real benefit then I might just stick with a 60Hz IPS panel.

No, you don't have to exceed 120FPS. You'll see improvements in smoothness over a 60Hz display as long as you exceed 60FPS. If you exceed 120FPS you'd need a monitor with more than 120Hz to see further improvements, if that'd be still noticable that is.

The difference between 60 and 80 FPS is already pretty substantial, so yes, it is worth it IMO.

I searched and did find a couple users who said they had some sag, and a few more who said their own were perfectly normal.

Just a follow up, I received my 2nd replacement and it sags also, both sag about 3/16" of an inch on the left. I checked it on a few difference surfaces just to make sure it wasn't my desk, which I had pretty much ruled out since the base shows level and the desk.

So far, I have fixed it by putting my little android figure under the left side, It's actually damn near a perfect fit and keeps the monitor there and the little figure looks like he is hanging out.

I am kind of OCD about stuff so I am still debating if I get rid of this monitor, which is sad because its a great piece of equipment, sucks to be OCD at times.

You can see my little guy here... smile.gif

Cool okay thanks for the input guys. Good to know my current setup will not hinder me from getting a 120Hz. Heehee.

If you're outputting 120 FPS in BF3, then yes. You can use FRAPS or the in game FPS check by entering render.drawfps true


Anything over 80 fps looks amazing in BF3 on this monitor.

Thanks in advance!

But make sure you know how to check the on screen menu for how many Hz you are displaying this is the true way to tell how much hz is being displayed. Frame rate like said before will help to see smoothness. But if its not going 120hz then frame rate doesn't matter. The problem with games saying 120hz is I don't believe them many games will claim 120hz but the on screen menu will say its only doing 60hz make sure you always check this (its with the buttons on the monitor) if you have any games that lie and say 120hz in the game menu and the in screen menu says otherwise then use the custom Resolution trick on the first post.
