I got more info on this monitor from a valid user on HardOCP and here is what I was told

 

 

Quote:
-- It's the real thing, but poor color quality
-- It's an older 3ms TN panel
-- It does not have LightBoost
-- It has terrible input lag

It's already part of the list of 120Hz monitors, but is a rather low-rated one among them.

If you want cheap nofrills 120Hz for solo gameplay or light competition, you don't mind the input lag, you don't care about colors and don't want the LightBoost enhancement, then it definitely gives you the "120Hz smooth feel". That said, I cannot recommend this for true competitive gameplay where input lag matters and/or where the best motion clarity matters. Happy users of this display do exist, if your priorities are a good match for this display. That said, people who can afford the GPU for 120Hz, should steer towards the LightBoost displays or the overclockables.

 

I think im going to skip this monitor then

Some people don't notice input lag. The other points are pointless and light boost you have to pay a premium for. Another option is the 23 ultrasharp by dell I've seen em for around 180-210. Also tn panels aren't know for super awesome colors.
