I'm getting burn-in even at 80 hz with the stock cable -.-
Is this OC very weak with the stock cable lol. Would changing it solve the burn-in problem?

Yeah, great link, very helpful. Guess what, I started reading at page 1 and read through to page 18. Shame I don't have time to read through 500 plus pages. I was hoping that some of the guys with experience would be able to pass it on instead of providing snarky comments about reading the thread. I thought the whole point of communities like these were to provide helpful insights for less experienced members???

It is actually semi-gloss compared to the horrible anti-glare coating of a dell 27" I used to use at work.

It is clear, and colorful, but with less reflections. I was on the fence too... but honestly the semi-gloss matte the qnix uses is awesome (best I have seen actually, and I usually always go for glossy). The only thing the the glossy version on this monitor is better for in my eyes is blacker blacks under certain conditions, and more reflections.

Now that's good information.

I mean, if on a 60Hz monitor, I'll need to run games at 60FPS to have it run fluidly (and there's a difference between 20 and 40 FPS, but not between say 80 and 100), on an 120Hz monitor, I'll notice a difference up to 120Hz (where there's a difference between, say, 80 and 110 FPS, but not 125 and 150 FPS)?

Yup mine was not labeled as "pixel perfect" and my monitor was in fact pixel perfect. I was just pointing out the fact that it had already been established that pixel perfect means nothing and you still run the chance of getting dead/stuck pixels. With that in mind it's best to go with a seller that advertises the smallest amount of dead/stuck pixels. That way you can always return it if it's a big issue.

It's really dependent on the person. Some people don't really notice the difference between 60hz and 120hz. I'd say most people can't tell the difference between 96hz and 120hz. If you used to use a CRT monitor back in the day and would run high refresh rates because you noticed less flicker, then you would most certainly benefit from one of these monitors. If not, it would probably be worth trying to find someone with a 120hz monitor so you can see for yourself before buying.

I love my 120hz monitor. The ONLY reason I want to go to one of these is resolution. This thing has the best color reproduction of any TN I've seen. It's really a great monitor, and I can't go back to 60hz. Even regular windows browsing is night and day with 120hz compared to 60hz.

That's why I'm still a little worried about buying one. Maybe I'll try and find a proven clocker.
In progress.

What's the benefit of ordering from Korea instead of that site that sells from California? Prices seem roughly the same, and a return to Cali should be a lot easier from the Continental US, shouldn't it?

Everything comes from Korea anyways so it doesn't matter. For example people ordering from ipsledmonitors.com which is based in Cali are still reporting that their shipments are coming from Korea.
