If you are doing video editing, screw 120Hz, get yourself a good quality IPS panel. Don't waste your time on TN panels. IPS has MUCH better colour reproduction than TN panels and would benefit you as a video editor.

Look at some of these;

Dell U2711 - http://accessories.ap.dell.com/sna/p...399&redirect=1

Resolution - 2560 x 1440

Dell U2410 (Very popular choice for 24" IPS) - http://accessories.ap.dell.com/sna/p...017&redirect=1

Resolution - 1920 x 1200

Either way, get an IPS for video editing. 120Hz will not help you remotely.

They are only useful for gaming since you can either game in 3D at 60FPS (on a 60Hz monitor you can only acheive 30FPS since 60/2 = 30) or run the game in 2D and have butter smooth gameplay (assuming you have the GPU power to draw 90+ FPS)

So get an IPS not a TN panel.
I was gonna suggest the EXACT same monitors!

yeah i'm trying to run all three monitors at the same time, that's becoming a struggle so far with the whole Quadro issue, none of them display more than two monitors so I have to get a separate lower card to display the third monitor, most likely the 120Hz because the third monitor is just to see the video from the timeline and the Quadro card needs to be giving its driver boost directly to the Premier control panels and whatnot. At least as far as my understanding goes.

And you say this will benefit me more for displaying the quality of video? I guess the response time is ignorable in that sense, but it seems somewhat lackluster. But I guess in comparison to this idea that 120Hz seems to have to come with 3D, and is double the price... I dunno, now that this idea has been brought up, it's a dual. Is it IPS or 120Hz, people? Which would be the brighter move for a film editor? Maybe get both, balance them?

edit- IPS is great and all, but when I bought the Samsung it was right next to the IPS displays and I didn't see a noticeable difference.

Definitely go with IPS for your video editing. superior image quality. From what i've heard at least. if you do go balls out with an ips panel i'd get the dell with 2560x1440.



I have a question tho. gaming at 60hz with my 2 6970 is already really really smooth. honestly, how much smoother is playing at 120hz? am I going to notice? i expect to be wow'd if i'm payin 700$.

all movies are made 1080p24 for the moment as far as i am aware so 120hz would be pointless as blu-ray / hd movies are only made in 24 FPS

take the IPS monitor for the quality witch is what you were after from what i understand

THIS is 1080p and includes details you may want to know

so IMO unless gaming matters > then video editing 120hz inst worth it (unless your doing 3d editing)

bro i've seen television and films on 120Hz monitors, the quality is something the human eye orgasms to. the thing is, the only times i've seen said monitors at work, they were always displaying from DirecTV or Blu-Ray devices, not ever computers. that's why this question's been floating in my head. it could be that this higher quality only comes out from separate media devices, and computers are more or less restricted to what their graphics cards can handle, which I, personally, have never seen state any higher than 60Hz on a GPU's own personal specs involving maximum resolution.

ok, so if you guys are saying that a 2560x1440 IPS monitor is better than having a 120Hz refresh rate (which to me REALLY challenges all this talk about 1080p), then I guess I'll give it a shot. And by the way, samuals, you DO know that 120 divides into 24 just fine, in fact smoother than 60Hz divides into 24? So I don't see how your argument holds. but whatever, I think I can make a balance in between all these choices.

Not true 24 goes into 120hz so it would work

i am not stupid haha yes 120 is 24*5 witch means you see the frame 5 times

a good quality screen will do the same as seeing the same frame 5x

the OP wants to edit video, most video is recorded in 24 or 30 FPS but OP wants see what it would look like at its best IPS monitor's will do this better

the reason why you increase the FPS or display the frame more is to increase the quality of low quality video and yes this also works for HD video in a similar way but that's not what the OP wanted to know

I am not arguing the fact that 120hz looks good im arguing the fact that IPS monitor's work better for editing due to quality

alright, that makes a little more sense, you guys seem to be pretty confident about this. if anything i might end up getting both sometime in the future, but i guess IPS should be my first option.

(i am the OP btw)

one quick question: what is it about IPS monitors that has this power to increase quality so well? is it a measurement of sorts (eg: contrast ratio, response time), or is it just built with superior technology? or is it just because it has resolutions beyond 1920x1080?

They are simply made with a different panel type over traditional TN.

Here's a simple read of them

Basically, IPS uses a higher bit-count for color, so it can reproduce more colors without blurring. They also have much wider viewing angles. Downside, is they can't change pixel color as fast as TN, making them less suitable for fast-action gaming.
