If i get a monitor 120hz/light boost or g-sync monitor will i have the same experience watching video just like the hobbit 48fps?
Also how is the color production of the current 120mh/ lightboost/ g-sync monitor compare to say IPS panel monitor like dell u2711 (as i am using one)?
Well, I don't totally get your post, so I'll just braindump instead
The u2711 will have better colors than any 120Hz+ monitor (Idk about the korean monitors).
Just changing out your monitor won't magically grant smoother video playback, like Hobbit@48fps. It won't somehow upscale the framerate. It'll still be limited by whatever the source framerate is (24fps, 29.97fps, etc.).
A 120Hz monitor, however, will make everything from games (if you can keep the frames up) to desktop browsing smoother than a 60Hz monitor.
A 120Hz monitor may feel more responsive and less laggy than 60Hz. I know when I was using my Planar PX2710MW side by side my BenQ XL2720T, the BenQ made the Planar feel like it was laggy, which could either be because of a noticeable input lag difference, or the difference between 60Hz and 120Hz.
If you want to watch movies and stuff at 60fps/120fps/144fps, then check out SVP
. It interpolates extra frames in the video to increase the framerate to your refresh rate. So, for instance, if you have a 24fps (or 29.97, 30fps, etc.) movie, it'll interpolate extra frames to make it 60fps for a 60Hz monitor or 120fps for a 120Hz monitor, which makes playback MUCH smoother. So yeah, 120Hz+ monitors aren't only useful for gaming. Maybe some of you guys can give it a try.
