Response times mean squat.

Input lag shouldn't be an issue with any of the VH series monitors overall. Might be on some VS models, though I'm not sure.

do any of the "VH" models have tilt/height adjustment? It seems only the incredibly expensive "VG" models bundled with 3d glasses have those features. That would be a shame.

VH series monitors have tilt adjustment. As I said, check neweggs detail page for that kind of info.

I've read about asus switching out panels on the same model. Not really a practice i condone, because you read a review on a monitor and you get something different.

just something to think about.

planar, samsung, mitsubishi, sony, NEC are companies who don't do this

It looks like only VG has the height adjustment function. Newegg does offer the VG236HE without the 3D kit, but its still $320, probably due to the 120hz and not the height adjustment.

Yes, 120hz monitors are usually quite expensive. That's why it costs so much.


Do what I do. If you are unsatisfied with the height of the monitor, stack up some books under it or the monitor next to it to make them even.

I'm worried about the monitor being too high, so I wouldn't be able to do that. I prefer looking slightly down at the screen, so my current monitor's screen is about 2 inches from the top of the desk. I might go for it anyways, since I am curious as to how 120hz looks in games and movies.

I have this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=asus%20ve248

Got it about 6 months ago at frys for a steal of $159.99. So far its been a great monitor, no complaints. I even knocked it off my desk and it landed directly onto the screen on the corner of my pc, didnt leave a mark and has worked fine.
