I too have owned a few CRTs back in the day Samsung , Sony G520, FW900 thank god they finally make good monitors . My NEC 2690 wuxi one of the best IPS filters made ATW polarizer was lasted me a good while from 2007 to now which had about 16ms lag.The DS270 is a great improvement just because the res is so high it makes 1080p look awful now in my eyes. When calibrated the blacks look accurate now when i thought the out of the box settings where great but after calibrating it made a difference. For my main living room TV i have owned panasonic plasmas from 2006 PX60 u , V10, GT20, ST30, VT60 "returned" to now my beloved Samsung F8500 plasma
I have seen TN screens and would agree they are awful for picture quality. I just find it funny all these people on the internet trying to find the perfect monitor with less lag or picture quality and it makes me think they have never owned a really good high quality monitor. The DS270 is the best bang for the buck out there period. If i had the cash i would of went with a 1440p NEC that uses the same AH-IPS panel but those run around 1200 bucks on sale.
i would of though Nvidia G-sync would of been more mainstream by now . I have a feeling new panels will just be released to get close to CRT performance anyway within a few years and G-Sync will just be a forgotten technology . Unless they can market it cheap about 100 bucks that can work on any monitor they might have a chance. But since it only works on TN panels right now i will pass. Hopefully they can come out with a new revision of g-sync to replace the entire mainboard and power supply on these korean monitors . For 100 bucks a kit i would be interested. Until then i am going to pass on that.
