Moving from 60hz 1200p IPS to a 120hz 1080p TN. Worth it? - Page 6

post #51 of 52
I think I will go ahead and invest in a 144hz TN monitors on black friday (BenQ or Asus, probably BenQ because of the zero flicker and better default colors), and save up for the upcoming (Q3 2014) consumer version of oculus rift. Since OLED and 120+hz IPS is too long of a wait and spending 700+ on a surround (3 monitor) setup to be obsoleted in a couple of years is a bad move, I'd think.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Keep in mind about OLED motion blur as well as OLED burn in (burns in much more easily than plasma at the moment). Some of them solve motion blur by strobing, but there's no guarantee that monitor makers will use strobing (e.g. rolling scan) on an OLED to eliminate motion blur on the first models yet. It should be feasible to do so quite early on, assuming the OLED brightness is there.

But I don't think it will be 2 years for something that can beat today's monitors in motion blur. The first OLED models will probably be focussed as great all-around monitors (amazing colors, but with LCD-style motion blur) rather than as replacements for 120Hz monitors. Realistically, more like 5+ years for high-end candidates that can out-compete the crop of strobe-backlight LCD monitors.
