It just feels so much smoother at 120hz. When I switched back over to the Benq it just felt right. I was hoping this wouldn't be the case but I can't see me playing games on the Dell, even if the image quality is superior. Game play wins out over graphics in this regard. I'd be tempted for the Asus ROG Swift PG278Q but the TN panel is a bit of a killer. I'll have to wait and see how people find it when it gets released. I hear it's a huge improvement on previous TN panels, but just how much I don't know.

The viewing angles of this Benq are the biggest pain of using it for me. I don't always sit directly in front of the screen when I'm gaming. If I'm using the xbox controller I'll sit on a bean bag and when looking up at my desk it just isn't good.

I'm also finding, as much as I love the extra desktop space the 1440p gives me, I do find the icons and text too small at times. When I'm reading emails or browsing the web, I'm finding myself pulling the page over to the Benq for the larger text.

You could always game with your Xbox on the Dell since you're not going to hit that 120Hz wall on there smile.gif. And that's a big reason I'm afraid to try a 120Hz monitor tongue.gif.

Seriously it's night and day when it comes to gaming. I had no idea just how much of a difference 120hz would make. I've just tried 4 or 5 games and it's evident on all of them. Putting the combo's together on Batman is a great test. I even turned down all the settings thinking it may be playing a part but it made little difference. It's just so choppy on the Dell at 60hz, to the point I'm finding it unplayable. I don't know if that's because I've gotten used to the 120hz or not but there's no way I'd play any game on the Dell over the Benq, It really is that big a differance. I thought it would be just FPS games but it isn't.

I was expecting to be selling the Benq for another Dell, but I'm thinking the other way now. The viewing angle was my biggest gripe, but that isn't going to matter if I can't play any games on the Dell anyway. As good as the graphics do look at 1440 as compared to 1080, it's just not as big a deal as losing 60hz. I'm going to OC it again this evening and see if 85-90hz will stay stable and what difference that will make. It's the Dell's last chance.

So for me, purely from a gaming point of view it's 120hz. Is there anybody else that has both? I'm curious to know if it's me that's really sensitive to it? I've heard it mentioned that some people can't tell the difference.

It probably isn't just you. Have you taken a serious look into the 120Hz IPS/PLS displays? I'd say that could potentially be a great alternative for you.

Do you mean the Korean ones? I did think about it but at that point I had no clue how sensitive I was to the hz. The new Asus Rog screen may be worth a look though. Going to wait on the reviews for that.

I've just thought, I've had lightboost running on the Benq since the day I purchased it, so how big a difference that also makes to it as opposed without it running, again I'm not sure. I need to investigate further with lightboost off I suppose.

I'd wait on the ROG, its what im doing

Dont get caught up in the TN panel thing. Lots of TN panels look great. Pretty much every TV out there is TN, and some of those look pretty fantastic and dont have the "TN issues" people complain about.

I think there's non-Korean ones that exist, which is what I'd opt for over hit-or-miss imported monitors. It's why I played it safe with the Dell redface.gif.

Well I've decided, I'm going to have to return it. I bought it specifically to get the most out of games using the 780ti and I just can't get passed the sluggish feeling from it. I've tried numerous games, all at different settings and not once did it match the buttery smooth game play from the Benq. I'm really disappointed as the colours and graphics are amazing. I can't justify keeping it though, for simply browsing the web and general day to day tasks. I'd rather get another benq, hell maybe 3 for surround. As for 1440 and higher resolutions I think I'll sit it out for another year or two and see where the technology takes us.

See my issue is with 1440p its hard to hit >60fps, which to me makes me start questioning if a 120hz screen at this res is honestly worth it, 1440p will ALWAYS be harder to hit >60fps with than 1080p..

I ended up going from getting the 2713HM to the Asus RoG Swift, Then i started thinking of adding a second graphics card or upgrading my GPU, AGAIN, because otherwise im not really taking advantage of the 120hz panel.. and im just sitting here going "is this just now getting absurd?" The RoG is already a good $200 more to start with, Throw in at the very least a second 770 and im at almost twice the cost of the Dell.

And thats neglecting the fact i started this entire thing by thinking of getting the Asus 248QE ($280) so i had a lovely 144hz panel to compliment my 2410, Then i started reading the IQ complaints and realized a 27" 1440p IPS panel was not much more ($600 for the 2713HM)

The blur bugs me yes, but wont the blur still bug me on a 120hz display if i simply CANT hit over 60fps most of the time? Am I gaining ANYTHING? Im not convinced I am still...

You said something about OCing the U27 to 85Hz. How does it feel compared to the default 60Hz?

It's a slight improvement, I can just about tell a difference, but 85hz on the Dell is night and day as compared to 120hz with lightboost on the Benq. It's not like the graphics are bad on the Benq, they still look amazing to me on that to be honest. Plus I don't really notice when im in game anyway. Sure the picture is amazing at 1440 on an IPS screen, but only when looking at still images or really slow moving pictures. Any type of medium to fast movement and well quite frankly what difference does it make if it renders the amazing still images utterly useless in motion.

There is no comparison when Gaming for me...gameplay, fluidity, movement, immersion everything feels better at 120hz (lightboost). Maybe some games will benefit I don't know, I've not tested Skyrim yet. But the games I've tested are below and the results are the same. I've played half an hour today on each game on both screens. Messed about with setting and I just can't find a happy medium on the Dell.
