Yes but you will get a slight motion blur compared to your native 120hz monitor(and i mean very slight you may not even see it). This is compensated by turning off any in game motion blur and letting the monitor do it. If you do this they are almost identical from what i can tell.

Hi MrDucktape,

I just received this monitor last week. Coming from an Asus VG278H (a good looking 120Hz 1080p TN panel) I can wholeheartedly recommend this one. The resolution, the colors.... The plastic bezel and stand can seem a little cheap but still, it's a small trade-off IMHO.
In fact I just fired up my old monitor and it now seems horrible tongue.gif
BTW I'm in Galicia, the monitor was 240€ and another 80€ in customs (http://www.ebay.es/itm/140997037695?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649); ordered on sunday and it arrived thursday biggrin.gif.
Hope it helps

Thanks dude. I think I will order this monitor today. I know it is identical but which one is better X-Star or Qnix (and any seller preference)? thanks.

As said above, I came from 120hz 2ms VG278H to the qnix qx2710 that is supposedly 6ms.

Honestly I notice no difference in response times or ghosting. Some claim they do and maybe that's true but I wouldn't even start to worry about going from 5ms to 6ms.

Ooooh, I though these had 8ms response times.

According to the manufacturers, both XStar and Qnix have 8ms response times. I can't quote/remember the exact location of this info, but from what I remember it was the Qnix and XStar website that someone found.

I chose qnix because i think it is a better name than x-star. Chose hulustar as a seller because at the time they had a 0-2 defective pixels (i.e. 'perfect pixel') promotion for the same price as the regular one. I think that dream-seller, green-sum, hulustar, and bigclothcraft are all fine ebay sellers.

Input lag and response time are confusing and intertwining terms. The input lag is stated as 6ms, and tested as 6.3ms (source [click]).
This review is in the OP as well. Just translate from Russian to English.

Yeah, I tried that afterwards. It helped, definitely reduced the number of them but they are still present. Eventually I will get a new DVI cable, but I'm not sure if that would fix it.

Also, does anyone have any idea why flashing to the GHz BIOS would have made the issue worse? I figured it would have helped, given thatit increased the output of my GPU.

They are 8ms but seriously look up some reviews on response times differences between 8ms, 6ms, 5ms, 2ms and you will find once you go below 10ms there is really not a determinable difference other than some very slight motion blur(which most games have built in like i said). Response time under 10ms has become more of a price point now.

Really if you have under 10ms response you have to start working the other specs to make a huge difference which is why this monitor rocks. With 8ms response you are good, with 120hz you are better, with no scaler you are golden. There is always room for improvement but motion speeds on this monitor are top of the line for now.

This brings up another good point. Input lag under 6ms is usually as good as it gets in terms of what you can actually see. So this monitor is right on the edge of that parameter with 6.3. Really for you guys with AMD cards a slight bit of overdrive to get a bit better response would be interesting to play with. I have nvidia so i can't test that one out.
