Cant wait for tomorrow when it arrives!! Its in Menphis, Tn right now biggrin.gif

I have a 60hz 2ms Asus 24" for my wife's xbox and i think the Qnix @ 60hz beat it in terms of response due to the lack of a scaler. Her's does have VGA, HDMI, and DVI though so there is quite a bit of scaler(slang). After i got 120hz running it just makes the Asus look like a slide show redface.gif . If you haven't seen 120hz then you will not only be fine but you are in for a treat thumb.gif

I would make sure you are able to maintain 120FPS or higher though otherwise you are going to just get a bunch of tearing or vsync buffering.

I dunno you guys, I will guy a high end cable today to see if it does anything, if it fixes, it I will order a mono price cable and return the expensive one.

If I really got desperate. I suppose I could order another one from ipsledmonitors.com and just decide which I would like to keep and return the other one.

Are you using the DVI cable that came with the monitor? I think I was the first person to post on here about having 0 luck OC'ing, but buying a new cable from monoprice fixed it.

As someone who has tried both a QNIX @120hz AND a Benq XL2420T @120hz w/ Lightboost side-by-side. i can tell you that input lag between the two are identical in real world games (and i used to play CRT Quake 1, 2, 3 and CS Beta 0.7 at a very serious level).

I could no tell any difference whatsoever - my ghetto test was to share a window between the two monitors and move them to see if any lagged behind the other, and they were identical. With my connected Panasonic ST50 using custom mode (lots of video processing) there was a definite, noticable, unplayable lag. Of course i didnt have a splitter so i couldnt do any stop watch tests, but again - no difference.

I used Bioshock Infinite @ 120fps, and Half Life 2 @ 300fps+ vsync off, and no real difference. TFTcentral measured the Benq at 13ms http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/benq_xl2420t.htm#input_lag using SMTT 2.0 method, which i think show results that are slower than traditional method (not taht its "slower" in that the numbers are higher because its an apples-to-oranges comparison), if QNIX was measured in another way at ~7ms, then i can see them being identical if tested similarly.

And motion blur - is VERY playable @120hz...yes Lightboost is better, but not by much. I found myself going back to the QNIX and ditching the lightboost cuz everything else looked better. Ended up returning the BenQ. So personally Lightboost is not worth it. I really really wanted to keep it, but could not justify it if i wasnt really gonna use it. Id rather take the savings and upgrade my video card.

Hey guys, so I tightened up my timings @ 120hz in CRU and managed to get to the point where I no longer need LCD Reduced in order to avoid artifacts, but I can't seem to bring my Total horizontal and vertical below 2670x1445 without them becoming greyed out. Also, when I try to reduce one and not the other I end up with vertical lines all over my screen.

Should the right setting with my timings be able to get me to 120hz without any burn in? It's minor now and it goes away after about 15 minutes @ 60hz, but it is somewhat annoying.

If the refresh rate is 120Hz with Vsync OFF, and I'm getting below 120fps, tearing shouldn't really be an issue should it? I was under the impression that tearing occurs when you're pushing more frames than your Hz with Vsync off.

I REALLY noticed tearing with Vsync off at 60Hz because I had higher fps than 60, but with 120Hz I don't really notice it since my fps is below 120

What are your timings exactly? Whats the Pixel Clock, 450Mhz?

Dream seller or ta-planet?

Also is it common for people to be able to get to 120Hz but with graphical issues? Seems alot of people are saying the screen gets dimmer or colours diminish.

Most people are able to achieve it, but tend to clock it down to 96Hz. I can't talk from experience though, as I haven't recieved mine yet.

I used accessorieswhole, was said to be the least likely to cause trouble.

Thanks for the info. Accessorieswhole are another 30 quid where I am unfortunately, so I don't think I'll use them. Import tax is another concern, I asked ta-planet what their policy is on it and they said they mark outgoing monitors as $150, yet to hear from Dreamseller.

Just tried 96Hz, difference isn't too much from 120Hz so I think I could live with it.

I used dream seller for an X-Star Glossy.. No problems at all, except I did get a that customs bill in the mail from fed-ex for $20. Not really an issue and I will probably try and dispute it with fed-ex.. I thought we had open trade agreement with SK? Other than that I'd recommend them. My monitor has very minimal BLB and is not worth opening IMO, no dead pixels and OC's to 120hz with a cable I got from Bluejeanscable.com while using the "front porch" method.
