Can't wait for Blurbusters to get their review up, if they can give it the same accolades as Vega, then I think I will jump on one.

Also is the monitor which is connected via DP, the 'Master' screen? And the one which you have altered settings and then clicked apply to all screens???

Yes, all three screens USB plugged in. They have to be in order to control them from ScreenManagerPro. Unfortunately in NVIDIA Surround you hve to manually set the screens when changes are needed by -> right click taskbar icon -> show monitor connection list -> manual settings -> follow on screen prompts. There is no way for the program to know which monitor is which in Surround, so this is a workaround..

Looks like i'm going for a CX240.

I had contact with EIZO Europe today about the fan in de CX240, and they told me in May 2013 they changed the fan that's in the CX240 with a much quieter one.

So i'm going to try and get one with a recent manufacturing date.

Can this monitor strobe at lower refresh rates as well? How hard is it to achieve 120hz 1080p at recent games with a gtx 770 or r9 280x? I might get this monitor soon thumb.gif

I really want to buy one. Everyone keeps telling me there is a huge difference between 60hz and 120hz when gaming. I keep going back and forth between ASUS 144hz and this monitor simply because of price. For those that have used it, is it worth the additional $$?

Is ASUS comparable, or will I be really missing out? Is there that big of a difference between the two?

Are people still getting bad monitors? Is it still a gamble?

The crosshatching issue seems to have been cleared, people have been reporting that their displays are great.

As for the Asus vs Eizo; that is a huge question. The only way to answer that for yourself is to ask "Am I OK with the colors of a TN panel?", TN panels being what the Asus and BenQ displays use, and has been the industry standard for a long time. The big advantage of the Eizo over the other two is the VA panel and their backlight work (Vega might need to correct that last one).

The VA panel in the Eizo has far superior color reproduction of TN, better viewing angles....

Thanks for the reply smile.gif Truthfully, I've never had a VA panel so I am in a situation where I don't know any better. Is there a pretty big difference between VA and TN? I think I am more considering the 144hz vs. the 120hz or simulated 240hz, and whether or not the 240hz actually makes a difference.

I don't know, I guess I don't mind spending a little more money if it's worth the buy. Meaning that if it out performs ASUS in almost all areas and will not disappoint, then I'm sold. I know that is a bit subjective and really boils down to personal taste. However, I've never had anything other than an ASUS 60hz monitor, and I've been okay with it up to this point. However, everyone keeps telling me how amazing a 120hz monitor is for gaming compared to 60hz and once you play with one you will never go back. So I'm looking to be blown away, but my perspective is a bit limited concerning I'm no monitor guru.

I posted this on the LightBoost thread, but I thought I'd share it here too as it's relevant. I have had my three FG2421's for nearly a week now and boy my eyes have never been loved so much. The picture quality, clarity and depth of colours are just amazing. Gaming wise the motion blur tech is just stunning. All three of mine were manufactured in Japan on 02/10/13. Which means that we're seeing these Japanese made screens in the EU as well now. All have no back bleed, hatching or ghosting as yet, so it looks like the have improved their quality control and initial teething problems too!!!

Also I am not getting any input lag at all, they seem just as responsive as my old Asus VE278Q every was. So I just dunno what all this input lag fuss is about? But to get the best out of these bad boys, you must have them all connected via the Display Port outlet or a DUAL DVI cable. If not then the advanced features do not work and the screen functions as a 60Htz panel. Which may explain why other users have been experiencing problems with them. They may be a bit more expensive than other monitors, but just like everything in life, quality does not come cheap. The difference between TN and VA panels is like looking at your current screen through dark sunglasses, then removing them. It's as noticeable as that. So the moral of the story is owning the best brings added satisfaction to the users experience!!! wink.gifbiggrin.gifwink.gif

Are you measuring that or just saying that you can't perceive any difference? Some people notice it more than others. It also depends a lot of the game you're playing.

Keep in mind the Ezio 240 has higher input lag: http://www.overclock.net/t/1339384/lightboost-g-sync-turbo240-120hz-strobe-backlight-lcds-no-motion-blur/2300_50#post_21412959

I bought this monitor, it is currently in the box to go back right now. Bad colors, bad gamma shift on the edges, no discernible benefit from my VG236HE. I'm not super sensitive to motion blur so the Turbo 240 mode didn't help, as a matter of fact I found my gaming getting worse, shockingly bad in the case of BF4 because I kept focusing on the gray glow at the edges. I think I may have gotten a bad panel because the colors should not have been as bad as they were based on what I've read.

Example: I loaded up FC3 with the Eizo next to my Asus. I expected to see over-saturated TN panel shown up by the nice VA technology, but what I got was distressingly bad colors on the FG2421. On the TN side I could tell the difference between at least a half dozen shades of green in the jungle, on the VA side it was all an identical olive drab. Everything was terribly washed out no matter the settings.
