? And resolution... It's 1440P. That's a big step up over the current crop of gaming monitors (like mine).

Well yeah but there are cheaper better quality picture wise panels with 6ms response times and most oc to 120hz and they are 1440p ips panels not tn. But as someone mentioned earlier not all oc to 120 hz some only do 96/100 hz. As far as warranty goes square trade who is very reputable(amazon uses them btw) offers warranties starting at 3 years for $50.

I don't think very many people will be buying it because of that. Mainly for the fact it's 120hz 1440p G-Sync. And it being RoG will make it even more attractive to buyers.

Damn straight it would, and as it should. Can I play on an IPS screen? The answer is simply, No. The input lag, and artificating on even the OC'd Overlords is just not worth my time. I would rather sacrifice a bit of image quality and get the most fluid gameplay experience possible.

And hey man, remember, that to each his own wink.gif

To each his own indeed, so I don't have to be a "designer" to appreciate good image quality. What games have you played on an IPS screen by the way, BF4 would look amazing....have you tried it? How can you do TN after that? If were gonna do the whole RESPONSE.....REFRESH thing, why not a strobing monitor with a couple of gtx 770's for BF4 instead of $2800 on 2 TI's and a TN panel . I play FPS games competitively.....on an IPS.....AT 60HZ and beat players with 120 hz and strobing monitors. Never understood people who claim IPS have this slow motion input lag, to me thats crazy.

Unfortunately that puts you in the minority... I play competetively as well (with about 15 guys I know around the world) and we agree on few things but the one thing we are agreed on is that short of using a CRT, a 120hz or 144hz monitor is better for FPS games in every way except color and viewing angles. Ghosting and motion blur aside, input lag is the biggie with 60hz monitors.

You may just be a really good player tongue.gif Really good players tend to be really good irrespective of the hardware they use. For the rest of us, every little bit helps.

most of the korean monitor addicted people simply have never seen a good tn like a: Asus VG236H - Samsung S23A700D/750/900D - S27A950D

Have you ever owned a korean IPS or any 1440 ips for that matter to compare said TN panels with?

If it's like the vg248qe for example it will be designed to have a very low input lag.(vg248qe is around 7-10ms if i'm not mistaken), that combined with 1 ms respons time. If you compare it to a IPS monitor with higher input lag + a higher respons time, then I can believe some people feel the difference when switching between those monitors.

Other than that there's the amount of blur that will be different when response times are different.

Yup you are right, the 3 I ordered and returned all had potential. Unfortunately they were all crap. There are members here that have gotten lucky and got a monitor that overclocked to 120hz, didn't artifact, black screen, dead pixels, overheat or fall apart due to shoddy construction. For every one of those, there are the rest of us that paid money (in my case 3 times) and ended up with 3 junk monitors that did nothing close to what they promised.

I will not dispute that IPS/PLS provide better color reproduction, that is what they are designed for. Viewing angles are irrelevant to a gamer so let's set that aside.

What IPS/PLS monitors do not do well (aside from the few Catleap/Overlord, etc monitors that are actually stable at 120hz and don't have half a dozen dead pixels) is handle ghosting, motion blur and input lag. Nor should they, it is not what they are designed for.

Get a good TN panel and calibrate it correctly and the color is pretty decent. The added benefits for gaming make it shine.

If I didn't use my gaming system exclusively for FPS games, I doubt I would own a TN panel as I would have no need.

As an owner of a Korean 1440p Monitor and an owner of the S27A950D i have to agree 100%.

A TN Panel can look amazing! will it be 100% like the IPS? of course not but we all know that.

I had the 950D and upgraded to the 1440P and the ONLY thing i miss is the 120Hz so this is a dream come true for me biggrin.gif Also im a FPS gamer first and foremost and i LOVED the 950D for 120Hz but i do just as good on the 60Hz Korean with a higher resolution biggrin.gif This is the best of both world for me biggrin.gif 1440P and smooth as silk gaming!
