Different strokes I guess but you couldn't pay me to use a CRT monitor. I wouldn't even have enough room on my desk anyway...

The monitor does come with Display-port to Display-port for me was a problem i have Display-port to mini display port and at to get the right cable in order to get 120hz ,But not knowing that plugged in the HDMI cable to get 120hz ,So from what i can tel maybe that's what he did and that's why its not smooth ,I can tel you now with the right cable and having this monitor set to 120hz its smooth as butter ..

Great monitor for gaming with the right cable plugged in the right port ..thumb.gif

High end CRTs will beat out any LCD available today. If you think otherwise, then chances are, you haven't actually seen the quality of a high end CRT.

I was using display port.

If you wish to rant about the monitor, instead of necroing my thread, consider talking about it in the S27Awhatever club.

sorry ppl for upping an old thread but im researching on this issue due to the need to buy a monitor and this is one of the first threads that come up in google for the searches for this. especially for samsung 750d and 905ds

the reason i upped the thread was to tell talfrey and any other 'crt guy' who may be still advocating crts that crts screw up their eyes so badly that they would regret the 'high quality' they think they are enjoying.

ive been using crt monitors since 1993, and the only way to not get headaches due to extensive eye wear and tear because of low refresh rates was to get a high refresh screen. that was one of the reasons why syncmaster 965s were so popular - they did 100 hz.

even with 100 hz crt screens still radiated huge amounts of radiation to your face over long times of usage, while still tiring the eye due to nature of crt screens even at 100 hz. you had to use a glass filter to cut the radiation, and after that you got a considerably darkened monitor screen.

not missing crts a bit after that many years of using them.
