Thanks for testing this out!

This seems to be where most get stuck and my panel seems to be an anomaly being able to go further than that. These timings might be worth putting in the OP for other users to at least start from since it is definitely better than CRU's LCD reduced at least in this instance(with the Qnix).

I'm now looking to go higher res @ 120Hz, especially since my 780s don't really break a sweat @ 1080p.

Anyhow, I've been considering going with 3x Asus VG248QE panels in 3x1 portrait for 3240x1920 @ native 120Hz. However, these Korean panels are intriguing, and considering their better color reproduction (supposedly anyway, I've not yet seen either in person) I think as long as I were to get one that can hit 110 - 120 Hz without issues that I'd be happy, considering that I also wouldn't have any bezels in the middle of the display.

My primary concern with these Korean panels is the response time. The info on the FAQ of the OP states that these panels are no-go for twitch shooters. I know some people in this thread have gone from very fast, native 120Hz TN panels to these. So, for those of you who have experienced both first hand, how much real difference is there? I don't want color and resolution to "make up for it" if you will, I would rather, and am hoping, that it's a non-issue. This is really the only thing that still makes me pretty hesitant on buying one of these.

I've read that the only models that have discernible input lag are the multi-input models which include the addition of a controller board. The DVI only models are direct and supposed to have very good response time I think 6ms

I been wondering about this too, mine will do the same if I turn it off from my power strip outlet that it's plug into, but it won't do that if I turn it off from the monitor and just leave the power strip on, never seen a monitor do this before.

Lightboost has much less motion blur, and so would be better for people who do lots of competitive FPS.

For stuff like RPG PLS would be better for immersion as the colours would be better.

And saying this is no-go for twitch shooters is BS. Here's a nice little run done by myself in a CS:GO GunGame match yesterday using this monitor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_geUDNq5TAI

Thanks for the responses. I should have mentioned that, while the lightboost is nice, I am still happy with the performance of my 120hz non-LightBoost Samsung panel. If the performance is roughly on par with that, then it seems like a no-brainer, since I definitely want higher res, and higher res + LB means multiple 1080 panels... and I hate bezels. Anyway I would buy from ipsledmonitors.com so I can return it without issues if I need to.

6.4ms to be exact but really .4 should not be distinguishable.

I have a non-lightboost 120hz Samsung panel as well as the Qnix and i would say that the Qnix is slightly faster. The lack of input lag from a scaler helps a lot.

I can't seem to tell the difference between my A950 and QX2710 when rapidly dragging a window up and down that is half on each monitor. The input lag for me is negligible but others might notice it.

I can confirm that the QNIX has a higher native contrast ratio than my Shimians all post-calibration based on repeated colorimeter readings. The QNIX also has much less input lag than my Shimians from observation.
