I've got a GTX 680, but was waiting to see what the verdict is before grabbing a pair of monitors.

Depending on which route they go, looking further into the PCBs may give a better result timewise.

Reality of it for me is that I have a pair of 30" 2560x1600s at home for gaming, and these monitors are more for development at work, which does not require the higher refresh rate, but if the cost weren't a big thing, I'd be game for paying a little more in case I get the itch to play a game there.

As for the gloss screen, there are a few companies that make screen masks that take care of the that, of which i'm sure the reflection will probably be bad for text.

What news, bQvle? Everyone is trembling with barely contained anticipation.

My college has 12ms response time TFT LCDs (says on the front on a sticker of all of them as though the manufacturer is proud of it, they're old LCDs), they're 60hz monitors so shouldn't they have problems like you suggest this screen would have at 120hz? Edit: actually looking up response times on google has sent me to forums from years ago with people amazed at 16ms response times and others having 30ms+ response times, if they used to be like this for 60hz then why would having a response time higher than the refresh rate damage these?

People keep saying stuff like this without giving any sort of justification for it (I think they just presume it could be harmful, as I've seen no evidence to back it up). My understanding of electronics and LCD technology (which is reasonable, at least) leads me to believe that no long-term damage could or should occur from running these at whatever refresh rate they'll take. Worst that will happen is transient glitching if you set the refresh too high, and potentially ghosting with fast objects (which would still be visually better than stuttering from low refresh rate, IMO).

Lost4468, we need to clear up the difference between pixel response time (screen reactivity, 6ms GtG, ~11ms actual for these 27" LG screens, ideally landing you around 85Hz) and input delay time (likely the 30+ ms you mention).

Also, the simple math of the matter is that if you want to show 60 frames per second you need to be able to switch the colour of a pixel in 16ms or less. Otherwise you'll be getting instances where, plainly, you won't be seeing the colour you should. For 120 frames per second you need a response time of around 8ms or less - and that is not the 6ms grey-to-grey LG lists.

As for damaging the display - we can't say anything for sure at this point. The 2b pcb was made for 60Hz - it might be able to run at twice that, but for how long only prolonged testing or someone who really knows its innards could tell. The pixels on the panel themselves - drive them too hard and at best they won't be able to switch fast enough to display the correct colour, at worst you'll be reducing their lifespan.

I don't know of anyone else who has a 2B Catleap + GTX 680.

fair call I will be happy with 80mhz or so and the increased resolution so I'm still in smile.gif

I've seen this mistake a few times; everybody please try and get your units right. The refresh rates of these monitors are in HERTZ, not MEGAhertz. 60Hz, 80Hz, 120Hz. Not 60MHz, 120MHz, etc.

Things are confusing enough as-is without this extra wrinkle...

Ask them to make us a 100Mhz monitor. Would be ultra smooth and no one would complain for a long time.

lmao.

I have been thinking about this for the last few days and have decided that if Yamasaki needs it,
I am quite happy to be a distributor for these monitors in Australia.
I have a registered Proprietary Limited Company and am also willing to do sales for these monitors.

bQvle, please have a chat to your connection and ask if they are interested in a Distributor for Australia.
If they are please, PM me his contact details and I discuss it with him.

Cheers :-)

Whaaat! .. are they gonna be 100 Hertz and not 100 MegaHertz ?? .. dang, I'm OUT!

EDIT:
OK, i'm calm now. Maybe you can talk me into it, if there can be some bling on the bezel, I'm thinking pearls, huge pearls, like I found the monitor in a hidden cave somewhere and brought it back to the crip.
