Also....Am I right in assuming I will need to purchase the 3D emitter and glasses separately with both of these monitors? Or will Asus release a version, like the 27" model with the emitter also built in down the road?
I realise Benq has the Benq XL2420TX, the X indicating a built in emitter. Thank you very much for your opinions.
My understanding is gaming on the Catleap even with its 132hz refresh because of the pixel pitch or something, it is less than ideal unless you are sitting still in a game, and has the motion lag of a crappy TN panel that people would find borderline unsuitable for gaming? This monitor has high value, I don't know anything about the XL2420T, but I do know this brand new Asus monitor can't be matched in price point (in the states) by any other monitors for the gaming function. Yes, you need to purchase a separate 3D emitter, that is how the price is so incredibly low, $279 shipped. Most people who buy this monitor are most likely buying it for 2D use exclusively, like me. A 27" with a 3D emitter already exists, the bigger Asus right? Those are in and around $450-$599. This monitor is about half that.
^ Someone will give you a much better technical answer regarding the Catleap, Benq, and this monitor I am sure.
