Should I buy a 120hz monitor? - Page 2

post #11 of 169
Some of the 120Hz monitors still have very nice picture quality. For example, the Samsung S27A950D (and S23A950D, as well as the A750D series) have colors as good as some of the lower-end IPS monitors and by far the best picture quality i've ever seen from a TN panel. Just don't buy the Samsung 120hz monitors if you care at all about 3D too, because they're not a great 3D monitor (for multiple reasons, such as right-eye ghosting, no nvidia-3d support, dark-shutter glasses, etc).

I have a Samsung S23A700D, screen is very nice just curious about IPS having never seen one before.

One can hope though...

I wish there were some 1440p 120Hz displays out... I'd buy 2 of them right away!

In that price range I would get a Yamakasi Catleap, no question. It's usually capable of 100Hz+, and runs 2560 x 1440 resolution. Awesome monitor.

It seems the newer Catleaps don't overclock quite as easily...

How about the Achieva Shimian? Do those get 100Hz+?

Besides, the Catleaps have awesome image quality, even if they don't always get up to 100Hz+.

makes gameplay smoother, more appealing...easier to aim imo since the fluidity of character movement is greater than at 60 Hz. Definitely get it if you game a lot...if not a gamer than go IPS.

I have the S23A750D and I love it. I thought it was the best 120hz for the money until I saw my friend's BenQ XL2420T.
XL is pure quality. I turn on my monitor every morning and secretly hope that it goes out so I can buy a BenQ smile.gif

120hz is worth the extra $$, can't say much for 3D gaming but for 120hz gaming, smoothness is awesome.

What's so much better about the Ben-Q aside from the base and height adjustment?
