I can't say from experience, but from what I hear 120hz is well worth it, especially for gaming. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Someday I'll update my old 22" Samsung non-led LCD. smile.gif

This is an old arguement and has been repeatedly been proved wrong. Moragg is completely correct about the spec combination and this is the main reason we overclock these monitors. There is also the lack of a scaler that adds addition response time improvement. On top of that this is not "close" to 120hz it IS 120hz and we have plenty of data to back this claim up. The only feature in terms of response that this monitor lacks is lightboost. If you use a 120hz monitor without lightboost it will be visually identical to this monitor in terms of refresh. Other than that if you are going only for a quick response panel that makes old TN panels look like crap in terms of color reproduction everything else is a feature(other than the obvious easily avoided issues like stand, warranty, and multiports).

Push comes to shove i would never buy a retail 120hz panel. I would buy a panel from the manufacturer directly and build a DIY 120hz job exactly the way i want it for a lot cheaper. And in this instance it is not "you get what you pay for" it is more like "some assembly required" which many of us on a website called overclock.net don't mind doing.

Try reading a bit more and learning what you are in a discussion about and your comments will be a lot more to the point and have less mis-information in them thumb.gif

Intel next SSDs will have this option yes.

So, no one has an issue with the clarity different on semi-gloss? Just wanted to gather some opinions so that I can make an informed decision on which to buy wink.gif

Just got mine, thought the backlight bleed wasn't too bad but upon further inspection the bottom left and top right are a little bad. I think I might open it up tomorrow. Slightly worried though, since I don't really notice it unless I"m trying to and I'm not sure it's worth the risk of opening it up for the tape fixes buttttt we'll see. Thoughts?

Has anyone had their monitor go black/turn off for multiple seconds and then turn back on?
post #6416 of 25888
No that behavior not ringing a bell. Lots of factors in this equation though; not the display itself per se.

Stupid question but did you happen to change refresh rate and forget to hit keep settings? smile.gif
post #6418 of 25888
Nope, it hasn't been configured at all since having taken it out of the box. This happened with my previous monitor, so I'm inclined to think it has to do with my graphics card or PSU; however while that happened with my previous monitor almost every day, this waited about 3 weeks of constant use to occur. The thing that worries me is that the power light on the monitor actually turns off when this occurs, and the screen flashes red as it returns. Should I try to ship it out asap before the 30 days is up or is there anything you guys could suggest?

Does anyone here know why one of my monitors won't work properly when going into full screen games past 85hz? The other monitor seems to work just fine, but the minute I go into 90~120hz on the other monitor it starts flashing and crashes my drivers.

I can't tell what the problem is here. Is it the monitor or my gtx 780?

Hey guys, in the FAQ it says that glossy is superior for image clarity, can somebody elaborate on that?
