How important is motion blur to you?
1080p 120Hz advantage is better motion clarity (e.g. LightBoost strobe backlights)
1440p 120Hz doesn't have strobe backlights available.
Basically the situation where:
1. Moving photo -- www.testufo.com/#test=photo
(view in Google Chrome)
2. Stationary photo -- www.testufo.com/#test=photo&pps=0
On all 1440p monitors, there is always lots of motion blur in the moving photo even at 120Hz.
Only on CRT's and LightBoost monitors, moving image versus stationary image (during framerate=Hz) look exactly the same sharpness (the "CRT effect"). This "CRT effect" is currently only possible on 1080p LightBoost LCD's at the moment. If you like the CRT effect during fast turns/strafing/panning, then it's worth consiseration.
The QNIX QX2710 is still a great monitor for its dollar, and is highly recommended when you need the resolution. If you view moving
on a QNIX QX2710, the moving photo has lots more motion blur even at 120Hz. It is not zero motion blur on the QNIX. But the QNIX definitely has the advantage of having 1440p.Edited by mdrejhon - 8/4/13 at 12:51am
