The other benefit is that you have the option of 3D if you want to try it, I thought it would be gimmicky at first but I have to say I can't play Skyrim in 2D anymore as 3D makes it much more immersive for me. Forget about it for FPS Games though, the potential 120 FPS is much better there.
I may be biased, as I have never seen or used a 1440p 27" monitor but once you get used to the 1080p screen, it really doesn't look that bad, especially with the eye candy turned up and sitting at the right distance. You barely notice the larger pixel pitch after a while, especially when you get into the game. That being said, if/when 120Hz 1440p IPS screens come out, I'd likely be all over one
I can agree with his point that after you're used to something it's pretty good. I didn't think 60hz was that bad and most people who use them probably are more than fine with it, but if we give them a 120hz for a month to use on FPS games when they go back to 60hz I don't think they'll be too pleased.
I'm lucky to have the best of both worlds, but I could choose one or the other I would go for the higher res screen because I watch BD's and Anime on mine and don't really need the 3D.
Others will use 3D enough to make it an easy choice for a nice 120hz 1080 screen and like Brodie will wait for an officially supported 3D 2560x1440 and then pounce until then they'll stick to what they prefer, and rightly so.
