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

Since no-one seems to have answered this particular question:

Unless your current 120Hz TN is Lightboost, you won't notice the slight difference in motion blur. All have gotten to at least 96Hz, it's quite likely with tweaking it'll go >105Hz, at which point I doubt you'll see a difference against 120Hz.

Good info but if you search lightboost in this thread you can find this answered around 7 times.

EDIT: This is gone over very well on this page http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/official-the-korean-pls-monitor-club-qnix-x-star/3440

No one buys 1440p primarily to watch videos. To answer your question--never. That's what games are for.

Yea but you can watch 1440p content on youtube. You will notice that in some videos under quality selection you see "Original" listed above 1080p which is in fact 1440p. This is almost always from some kind of screen capture though be it gaming or whatever.

But you are pretty much right. In movie and video terms 4k is the next step after 1080p.. Now 4k will defiantly look a whole lot better than 1080p on your 1440p monitor. Sadly from what I can tell there is no real 4k media out other than remsatered versions of blurays which isn't really 4k.

Anyone know of any 4k content out yet?

These monitors will always be in stock as long as Apple and Samsung are still getting rid of their B+/B- monitors, correct?

So in about a month I wonder if you will be able to get these for $250?

It'd probably be a lot more even if we get knockoff 4K monitors - I'd imagine the panels are very expensive to produce.

Timescapes is in 4K, and some youtube stuff is 1440p. I think IMAX movies are 4K too, but I don't think the 4K versions are available to buy.

Haven't tried the Tripp Lite cables. Their power stuff is pretty good though and didn't even know they made cables. From what I can see it's 30AWG so might be similar to the one included with the monitor.

Personally I'm using https://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/dvi-cables/index.htm
It's 24AWG like the monoprice. My monoprice gives me about 115hz, the BJC i can hit 128hz. YMMV.

Well that's interesting; I've never noticed above 1080 on YouTube but I don't really watch many videos online. There is some 1440P video/movie/something or other that people linked to once in this thread.
