Ignorance is bliss! Don't ruin it for me! Haha
Heh, until you start noticing motion blur and/or choppy movement even when you are at a solid 60fps. At that point you're still suffering from the low frame rate, even if you don't know why
you are suffering or have a reference of how much less
you would suffer if you had a 120hz panel ;P
In my case, I've been wanting higher frame rates since before that was a thing (aside from CRTs, which instantly give me migraines and were thus never an option) for that very reason. Doing a simple turn in CS 1.6 next to an exterior wall corner was enough for me to realize how choppy and blurry 60hz TN panels were all those years ago.
Unfortunately, even 120hz isn't as amazing as people make it out to be. It certainly is better though.

They aren't just second grade panels, the guys are literally just pulling them out the garbage from Samsung/LG etc. It's not just dead pixels and backlight bleed, they can have deformed grids, which results in uneven sharpness on pixels/areas. Not to mention the input.
Sure, they can achieve the point of processing 120 frames, but the response times of the pixels just simply cannot cope with that. What you're seeing is just an overdriven mess. The clarity of the motion is appauling.
Frankly, they aren't worth a dime imho.
Yes, I do own one. (Qnix)
Hold on, let me get this right. You bought something that you feel isn't worth a dime
, for at least
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the panels in any reputable korean monitor. "American"/"First World" budget companies like Vizio use the same grade panels in their top tier units. "Premier" companies like Dell and HP even use lower grade panels in their budget series models.
There is no "pulling units out of the trash". It's a simple binning process. A+ Panels get put into Dell Ultrasharps, Apple's premium displays, certain HP models, and similar top tier clients. If you think LG and Samsung just throw away the rest of their stock that doesn't make it into the A+ tier, you have absolutely no understanding of how these companies do business.
Your i5 2500K is more "defective" than the panels used in the Korean panels that are popular on this forum, such as the Catleap, Overlord, Qnix and X-Star. I guess that was pulled out of the trash too, eh?Edited by Zero4549 - 7/13/13 at 1:23pm
