IMO I prefer the samsung for gaming, however watching 720p media properly scaled on an IPS PANEL
However, I wish I could get the refresh rates up to 96hz, I can't though, because it means video playback will be perfect.
Regardless for gaming/general browsing I prefer the smaller monitor. Firstly BF:3's FOV is funky, and I can get the whole picture in my focused FOV on the 23". Secondly it's VERY (ridiculously) smooth in motion gaming and in general browsing (make sure to set your windows refresh rate as-well) and it looks gorgous on high settings on decent looking games such as BF:3/Skyrim/Batman arkham city etc. I do have trouble "maxing out" some games on both monitors due to HIGH refresh rates, however lowering the aliasing, which isn't needed as much due to decently high density monitors, does the trick at keeping me around the 90-100 mark in general gameplay.
I REALLY notice the difference at like 103 hz, it just SHOWS how smooth it us, but the ips panel at 96 hz is MUCH more noticeable than my old lg e2290's 60hz refresh rate. TBH the input lag is horrible, I don't notice it in general usage, but side by side it's ridiculously obvious, however in gaming it's less so but noticible in vehicles because when I get round turns on jeeps in BF:3, gliding on Batman or Dirt 3 playing I can get some reaction lag but it could be lessened by adjusting my mouse's polling rate to 500/200hz to match the lag.. I only bought the IPS for a cheap 720p media viewer and I hope to pick up a 24" 1080p ips for 1080p media soon.
I suggest picking up the 700d over the 750d unless you need display port, I live with an (active dual link) adapter. The input lag/price is less, the bezel is smaller and the stand is sturdier although it has no adjustment. Also the 750d has better presets and adjustments in the OSD. TBH all the samsung presets are fairly warm, which is good for long-gaming as it lessons eye fatigue but for media it's horrible. My LG e2290 had MUCH better out of the box calibration and colours and gave you lots of options while the 700d has like 5 options. Regardless I'm happy and I LOVE 120hz and the ips panel, for different reasons though!
