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!?!?!

that lag is much lower on single input models, and the full input lag is NOT just the monitor, it's from the mouse to the screen. you need to have someone test and let you know, from mouse polling rate, GPU frame time, to the monitor pixel response time.

unless you are speaking of only the GPU to screen, then that still varys based on interface type (multi input and scalars increase time logarithmically as data rates go up (DP and DL-DVI are considered electronically by some to be a single input type)) and GPU framebuffer.

me testing mine, and then joe smoe from canada testing the VG248qe, will give us different #'s, that cannot be DIRECTLY compared, they can be referenced, but not compared..

I've gone ahead and placed my order for the qnix with storewithstory. I'll keep you updated wether I have to pay any customs fees or whatever.

So, my Qnix from acessorieswhole arrived yesterday. 0 dead pixels!! also very few blb.
i'm very happy with it.

now i've got two questions:
1st - I tried to scale it down to 1920x1080 through nvidia control panel but it gets very blurred and out of focus at that resolution. I know it's not it's native resolution but is it possible to have it at 1080 with a clear and sharp image?

2nd - I tried to use some ICC profiles for different Hz that someone posted here some days ago but I didn't see any difference when applied them. I followed this link http://www.lightroomforums.net/showthread.php?14070-How-to-assign-an-sRGB-ICC-Profile-to-your-monitor-(Windows) on how to apply. I set them as default but I don't see any changes.. What am I missing?

thank you

Why would you want to scale it down to 1080p?

Sort of defeats the object really as your not gonna benefit from all the lovely eye candy that you get from playing on a 2560x1440 Monitor.

What graphics card you using?

Presumably for gaming in demanding games where he can't run full resolution at a high enough framerate. I personally set my driver to apply no scaling so that it would show at native resolution with a black frame around it. Since I upgraded from a 20" monitor the usable area should still be at least as big as my old monitor and the size helps out when doing graphics work and general desktop stuff.
