The listing is complete and utter BS. 120hz? Virtual 4k? Multi input? Red-cap? Alarm bells are ringing. AVOID THIS MONITOR AT ALL COSTS. It's nothing more than your typical multi input Qnix from the seller with the worst reputation on overclock.net.
The only interesting thing about that listing is that it is said to be an AH-VA/A-HVA panel... Interesting.

Also has an annoying power on issue where I have to wait a few minutes with a blank screen and artifacts but everything is fine when turn it off then on again. In short, it's time for something new
I am just so torn over the decision of getting one of these monitors or going with something like the Yamakasi DS270 or even going to 1600P with the Yamakasi Sparta 301. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-YAMAKASI-301-SPARTA-30-S-IPS-2560x1600-DVI-D-PC-Computer-Monitor-/141161911922?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20dde7d672
I am not really finding much information about the 301 but I hear it is similar to the older 300 model and have heard mixed feelings about that one with IPS glow being one of the biggest.
I know about the side affects with the overclocking when it comes to gamma shift and my questions would be how is PLS different from the Sparta 301's S-IPS, Input lag or the DS270 AH-IPS, the benefits of Tempered glass over matte but I remember somewhere that there could be a glossy screen under the glass but not sure if that has been confirmed or denied.
Any help you all can give me on this would be great. Just so torn. I have been always been drawn more to higher res but the old CRT game player in me has me drawn to these monitors. I would be very happy just to get this to 96Hz
1. The older 30" panels are still using CCFL backlighting. They introduce two problems. The first is that they run hot, power hungry and throwing off a lot of heat. The second is that they are wide gamut monitors, giving widely oversaturated colours. I would avoid them as they are older, inferior technology and generally not suited to gamers.
Convening glossy, most panels are no longer glossy, even the glossy panels are just a piece of glossy glass on top of a mate panel.
The ds270 doesnt overclock, so if you want to overclock you'll need a qnix or xstar.Edited by kevinsbane - 3/6/14 at 6:20am
