No the most fluidity and smoothness (the "difference") would be best perceived at frames about matching the refresh rate. So if you are running at 120Hz and only pushing 50 FPS there is no real "difference" at all from playing at 60Hz. None of this is exactly written in stone though starting with the fact that some don't perceive such as well or as much as others to begin with.

Yes that is the main benefit. Shipping back to Korea is expensive and a pain so the sellers really try to avoid it any way possible incl. trying to scam the shipping company. Here you just ship back to Cali and the IPSLED guys deal with Korea, I guess.

This company is also "another set of eyes" checking these things out before they sell too I figure. Though I suppose they might not hook up every single one first.

I thought the whole point of communities like these were to provide helpful insights for less experienced members???
I think his point was to get you to read the first post, not flip through and skim through this thread.

30% difference in price is not roughly the same.

The benefit is having the peace of mind that if you dislike your monitor for any reason whatsoever, you can return it for free + free return shipping.

it matters if you want the ability to return a monitor. there was a pretty long thread on someone who got a DOA monitor from green-sum, green-sums solution: blame the shipping company. to me that is a big deal if you can't return a bad monitor

That's a "not outrageous" premium IMO; they have to make something to stay in business. For the further peace of mind at the very least. Chances are likely a little better you'll get one in great shape too.

I don't like it when people ask the same questions over and over again,especially when the answers to their questions are on the OP! It makes the forum boring to read. Before i got the monitor i was almost everyday on this forum but now,i don't know man,it's just like people posting the same things!

i just saw the $269 from ebay while i was browsing this morning. 445 sold when i got mine. now 480 sold after 3 hours. from green-sum.
i didn't know anything about PLS just saw the monitor at that price and got it. i was waiting for these 27 inch to drop below 280. only after i bought i realized it's new technology and semi matte and semi glossy. i was like: oh right on.

had a catleap and sold to friend. this one will be for my mom because she likes to save files on desktop. so running out of space on an 21 inch. need to buy a new monitor and here it is. lol.

I got mine from ipsledmonitors for peace of mind for returns. I already had to deal with a bright green stuck pixel in the center of my screen for my Crossover 27 in model that I couldn't return. My Xstar seems nearly perfect, although it looks like there may be a dust particle in lower right near the edge of the screen - it looks almost like a gray stuck pixel except it doesn't seem uniform enough to be a pixel.

How bad are the distortions for "bad" panels at 120 hz? I tried and during gaming, sometimes a white scan line would appear for a fraction of a second in specific menus. I put it back to 100 Hz. 110 Hz seemed like there was allot of color banding, but no scan lines.

Finally, my monitor seems to be missing when setting color profiles. It used to be there before I plugged in my Crossover as a 2nd monitor, now it only gives the option to set it for the crossover. What can I do?
