Why are you guys posting TVs in a 120hz monitor disussion? I know for a fact that 120hz TVs use a form of CFI (creative frame interpolation) to get the 120hz. They are incapable of taking a signal from a computer and displaying a true 120hz. I would imagine plasmas with their 600hz is based on the same concept.

Plus your not going to be doing anything constructive on a gigantic tv. (word, excel, web development, programming, modeling, rendering) A tv would only be good for games and movies/videos.

*sidenote: I said above all 120hz tvs use a form of CFI, I say a form because each manufacturer has a different marketing name for it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_interpolation

600HZ

I honestly don't see why OCN will "of course" tell you this. Waiting for it to be more tried in the marketplace means that you're waiting for scrubs and people who don't know tech to use it. Meanwhile, OCN has a bunch of users who know what they're talking about, both in terms of the tech and it's advantages in gaming. And don't tell me you want a pro gamer's opinion. Problem with pro gamers is that they're sponsored. They cannot advertise a product from a company they aren't sponsored by and they cannot talk badly about a product from a company they are sponsored by. I would take the word of OCN over anything common people spit out. That's why I don't have an Astro A40 headset or something.

I have had both a 120hz PLANAR and now a Crossover 2560x1440 IPS. Personally, I like the IPS better. However, I think it really depends on what you want to do. A lot of people utilize 3D and for that the 120hz is great. For hardcore gamers, 120hz is great. If you are just a gamer, who isn't hardcore, and just enjoys glossy, hi-res, then the 27 in IPS is awesome.

I will admit that gaming at 120 versus 60 is a LOT smoother, but I'm an eye candy type of guy and the IPS is much more vibrant to me.

Also depend on games played. If you play alot of Battlefield 3, CS:S, TF2, L4D, COD, or even FPS in general a 120hz would probably be better for you. Though if your a RTS or games like MMOs which don't really need all the extra frames would be fine on 60hz anyway. Really depend on what the user wants in a monitor.

I myself hate glossy screens, and I really loved how my really old 17" 80hz CRT used to play games. Was going to get one of those Samsung 120hz monitors even though it was glossy, mainly because they were cheaper then the ben-q. But found my Planar for $279 and couldn't resist. Sadly they stopped making them but they are probably second to the Ben-q if anything. Matte screen with 120hz at 1080p was just what I wanted. 1080p still give you plenty of desktop space, and is a perfect Rez for a PC with only 1.25GB of v-ram. Oh... and the smoothness of FPS was way worth it. I don't care what you do with your IPS screen, when you pan your view in games you will have a great deal of extra blurring compared to a 120hz screen. I turn motion blurring off in the APP and because the Screen produces so little Motion blur on its own panning your head give you a crisp view. With the correct mouse and tracking calibrated perfectly, games will be a much better experience.

Easiest way to determine if 120hz is worth it for you is do a side by side comparison.
No one here can tell you if it's worth it for you or not, just like a mech keyboard vs a regular.

Why not just do a side by side comparison?
Anything from Amazon you can return if you don't like the product.

120hz 1440p S-IPS FTW! I definitely do see a big difference between 60hz and 120hz. Even though in BF3 I only get between 80-100 FPS with my Catleap it is still very noticable. 120hz does put more stress on my 670. I had to lower the OC'd core to just under 1.3 Ghz from 1.32 Ghz @ 60hz.
To any FPS gamer I would highly recommend getting a 120hz screen. I'll never ever go back.

It's not because I disagree with the bandwagon that i'm here to start a flame war. The fact that an opinion is popular doesnt make it true.
I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but yeah, I'm quite sure that you dont ABSOLUTELY NEED a 120hz monitor to be able to enjoy a video game.
