How bad is the input lag on these? About the same as an IPS? I messed around with a Catleap, and it was definitely noticeable compared to my 120hz TN.
In progress.

From what I've heard/researched, with no OSD and no scaler, input lag should be minimal smile.gif

I don't notice a difference between these and any other TN monitor I've used, though I'm far from an expert on the subject tongue.gif

When both at 120hz, the input lag is identical to the BenQ XL2420T in my experience

I noticed some lag, and the motion blur was pretty terrible. I might have to wait for an IPS with lightboost. tongue.gif

How bad are the speakers on these? I don't care about audio quality as I have a pair of Sennheiser HD555s and a 2.1 system, but sometimes my gf uses my 2.1 system to play PS3 and I prefer to have something playing without my headphones.

AVOID THESE SPEAKERS LIKE THE PLAGUE!

Input lag was tested to at 6.4ms overall. I wouldn't say it is terrible but it is definitely noticeable compared to a monitor with lightboost. But setting it next to another 120hz panel that both not using lightboost was practically identical. This is why those buying these and overclocking should not expect lightboost level clarity and merely 120hz level clarity. Plus 6.4ms although is rather low compared to many other IPS and PLS screens is not quite as good as many TN gaming panels. I found sitting slightly back from the monitor helped me get used to it after using lightboost on my Asus.

It also might be a while before we get a lightboost IPS panel considering they have not had any panels that i have seen go above 60hz natively yet much less the prospect of lightboost. Also it seems the industry is starting to focus a bit on 4K displays which are only coming out at 30hz due to cable bus limitations. Hopefully we don't get stuck in another rut like the 1080p plague and they get 4K@60hz and stick with it for years.

I see what you mean though 1440p@120hz + lightboost with no scaler would likely be amazing.

No not at all. In fact in my opinion if you have never experienced lightboost or a high rated gaming panel you may not even tell over standard panels. I have had lightboost and although i did notice it didn't take me long to live without it. These are great for games and FPS will be fine. If you have had lightboost it is a bit like going from 120hz back to 60hz at first (at least to me). The resolution more than made up for it but i do miss lightboost.

Bottom line FPS definitely don't suck and you still get a big reaction time benefit. There is just a slight motion blur. Many of my games had a motion blur setting and after turning it off it compensated for a lot of the blur. Honestly i wish i still had my 144hz Asus so i could test motion blur again (since in game motion blur was on during initial testing).

I was one of the first to buy 1 (3 now). I have owned it for just under 6 months (i think guestament) and have not had any issues. You are not likely going to find anyone that has owned one for a year since they have not been out that long. This is kinda apparent if you look at the age age of this thread, the first post was 4/22/13 which was not too long after they came out.

I tried mine an then quickly turned them off. It was kinda like listening to those dirt cheap "sound systems" you can buy from walmart (which was an insult to my ears). My advise is to take the nice size savings you got from buying a Qnix over a name brand and buy some real speakers. thumb.gif

Thanks for the heads up on compatibility thumb.gif

Thanks man. Lol

I have just a standard 60hz 2ms asus 24".....I dont play competitive or anything but I love me my Battlefield 3 and soon 4. When I saw the system req for BF4 I decided to make the jump for high res over what I have now just for that extra something. I haven't even seen 120hz in person so ots no big deal. Cant wait for tomorrow when it arrives!! Its in Menphis, Tn right now biggrin.gif
