some people get the hz, but haven't been able to prove it's not just dropping frames.

there is a frame drop tester you can do. i have done it and = dropped frames on mine.

each panel is diff tho.

So I've read a lot of this thread (not all) and the general consensus seems to be that these monitors have "little" input lag. Has anyone done any actual testing like review sites such as Anandtech do? You've all seen the charts, the ones that show what they measured for input lag vs other comparable monitors...

For the sake of clarity: I am not referring to pixel response time. I don't care if it's 6ms, 8ms or 1ms like the Asus VG248qe. Pixel response is nearly meaningless because the difference in a couple "real" ms is nothing and most monitors with 1ms response don't end up being that in the real world, it's like contrast ratios (subjective). However, I'm referring to the processing lag that most IPS/PLS panels have. I've heard that because these are single input and don't include a scaler that the processing lag is eliminated, is that true?

I used to competitive game, I play FPS as well as MOBA games like LoL and MMORPGs like WoW and I cannot deal with 30+ ms of input lag like a lot of the Dell/major brand IPS panels. I want to be 100% sure that when I get this I'm not going to notice that it's worse than what I'm currently using. Why can't someone make a glossy 120hz 1920x1200+ monitor in 24", I don't care if it's TN or IPS. I don't want to downgrade to 1080p and I can't stand matte finish screens but I need 120hz!!!

WHY MONITOR COMPANIES WHY!?!?!

What do dropping frames actually mean? Is the monitor usable when this happens?

It means that it isn't running true 120Hz. To compensate for the increased refresh rate, the monitor has to "drop frames" meaning that out of 120 frames per second, you'll only be getting 80~100 frames per second (just an estimate, not really sure how many frames you lose).

I'm trying to ask the person who did the review about the 120Hz multi-input versions on TechnologyX to take a photo of the frameskipping test so we can find out if it is true 120Hz or there is frame skipping.

Anyone familiar with "storewithstory" on eBay? Can get the Qnix from him for $299 while other big-name sellers ask atleast $340 (there are some who ask $300 but they dont ship to The Netherlands).

It's more like it runs at 60 fps no matter what HZ signal you send it, so it will drop as many frames as necessary to maintain 60 fps.

So I've decided to go ahead and order a new monitor while I ship my dead one off to Korea. Just wondering if you guys think I should order from amazon or ebay. Amazon usually has a great return policy but I don't want to be stuck with paying returning shipping again if anything goes wrong. Does anyone know if return shipping on defective items is free for qnix's bought on amazon?

I use my old monitor as a side monitor and for the PS3. The other day I tried to set it as main monitor and play some games to get more FPS. It was awful, I had to change it back within the first hour because it was overwhelming.

The step from 1080p to 1440p is not that noticeable but if you go from 1080p to 1440p, wow.

Just wondering how much did you pay for returning it, and what are they doing? Money back or something?

I bought mine from bigclothcraft on ebay, they shipped to me here in NL with DHL and I only had to pay €57 import tax and DHL fees. Some sellers use FedEx, and some Dutch buyers have been getting hit with really high fees....
