Worth it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys:
My question for you is: Are 120hz panels really worth it?
And also: Is 3D Vision harmful to you in any way? Is the experience worth it? Thanks guys.

For me It is totally worth it. The difference between 120 fps & 60 fps is very noticeable IMO. I feel some input lag when I move the mouse in some games with 60 Hz. 120 Hz really fixed this the issue now & I feel everything is smooth as butter.

As for the 3D. some people when use it for extended periods have symptoms like dizziness & headaches other than that I think it is not harmful in any way.

I agree with Knight. 120hz brings a smoothness to everything that makes going back to 60hz noticable. I didn't personally believe the 120hz hype till I experienced it myself.

3d vision rocks. Yes it can be a bit disorienting at first but after using it for a week or so you really get used to it. I can game for hours in 3d with no side effects now. The effects when working well are nothing short of amazing.

Other than that in games where you won't be using 3d the higher refresh rate really is nice.
