This means you are 1-2, possibly 10 frames behind real time and this will effect your ability to aim/do just about anything.
When buying a monitor this is ALWAYS my primary concern as it has a bigger impact on your play than hz do. Response time and ghosting also plays a very important role - however most monitors these days are around 2ms so this is no longer a huge issue.
Yes, 120hz is better - however make sure the monitor has less than 10ms of input lag - or you will be sorry. This is the main reason most people do not game on large HDTV's (40+").
The best reference I have found thus far showing input lag is the shoryuken input lag database.
Okay so to you which of this 2 monitors has less input lag. The Ben Q or the Samsung?

It has No ghosting at all that i have ever seen, and it has perfect response time.
People will say the samsung has the best color of the 3 and the benq has the worst, with the asus in the middle. You should look into the asus monitor as well and if you have any questions about it just ask and i'll let you know from first hand experience.
I was going to look into Asus VG236H, because personally I like their products. It started with my Asus G73 ROG, then I ended up going with my ASUS P8Z777 V-LK and I also got the Asus VE248, all as of now. But.... unfortunately the VG236H is discontinued on Newegg and unless I find a refurb for a good price that offers some type of 1 or 2 year warranty, even If I have to pay for it like Square Trade, then I'm afraid it won't be an option.

I would imagine, now stop making me jealous lol JK
But in all seriousness, I spoke via PM with a member of the Forums who has had experience with both this monitors I'm looking at. The Samsung and the Ben Q and he says that they are both almost right at par. Here is what he said. Which seems to go with just about every review I read and watched on Youtube so I know its on point.
-10/10 input lag
-7.5/10 color accuracy
-10/10 build quality, impeccable
-9/10 input lag
-8/10 color accuracy
-7.5/10 build quality
I can get the 700D for the same price as the Ben Q on Tigerdirect, refurbished plus a 2 year plan from Square Trade (Warranty is a must for me)
Its going to be a tough decision.
So here is my question: Anyone can confirm what Ben Q warranty is for New monitors? Because according to Best Buy, it only has 1 year of Warranty, if that's not a mistake then I'm going to buy the 700D with the separate 2 year warranty and call it a day.
BIG HUGE EDIT:
The Ben Q At Best Buy just went back to $400, guess I won't be getting it unless I find it new again for $350 at another retailer.http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/benq-benq-24-widescreen-3d-ready-led-monitor-with-2ms-response-time-xl2420t-xl2420t/10198341.aspx?path=aca1bf7eb89887fba7a974c365b4659een02Edited by EpicSurvivor - 1/4/13 at 9:01am
