120hz/1920x1200 monitor? - Page 2

post #11 of 14

Thanks for suggestions/explanations, guys! +1 for all.

I've pretty much thrown in the towel in terms of finding a 120hz 1920x1200 monitor (because there isn't one). In case you're interested, I've settled on this, for now:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236104&Tpk=VG236He

The Dell/Alienware 120hz monitor appears to be the best in class, but it's also $460, so...

I picked up the ASUS VG236 a couple of weeks ago and am thrilled with it. The gloss finish is a non-factor, even with a window beside me and a light up and slightly behind me...I never ever notice glare or reflection. Blacks are BLACK, colours are great. From straight on, no bleed out the edges, though if I stand up I can see a little out the top. I'm not really a 'monitor guy', but maybe I'll convert - this thing sitting beside my old LG 22", makes the LG look very dim dull yellowed etc etc, I didn't know what I was missing.

I'll be ordering it in a couple of days, can't wait. I read enough reviews that didn't even mention the gloss. One review in particular cut to the heart of the matter:

If you’re the kind of person that cares about squeezing every last FPS out of your box - regardless of how you feel about 3D - don’t even bother reading the rest of this review, just run, don’t walk, to the store and get this 120Hz display. I’m serious.

ASUS’ VG236H isn’t perfect, like any product there are a few caveats. That aside, honestly, the completely unparalleled level of smoothness on a 120 Hz display has made me hyper attuned to just how flickery 60Hz looks on all the other LCDs I’ve got.

I don't care about 3D (that's why I'm getting the VG236HE, doesn't come w/ 3D equipment, costs $150 less). But my two 580s need to breathe, and only 120hz will let them do that. And the Dell/Alienware Optx doesn't seem to be worth the extra $130 (to me).

Kind of surprised that 120hz monitors aren't more of a hot topic on this forum. Like LCDs in general, they're just not that expensive anymore. And it looks like a lot of us should be getting 60+ fps in most games.
