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.

I enjoy a wide variety of games cranked to the max and shiny as can be lol. My point was, if I ever get to a point where miliseconds of response time become all important and I need "every little bit" to "help"..... than resolution and 780 ti's will be the very last of my concerns and I better be getting paid for all my competitive prowess.

You're correct, JJ has said this was specially made for Asus.

There you go! So until I see this panel in person or see reviews from actual people who bought it (not reviewers), I will leave my judgement open.

This makes me feel better about it being a TN, if they did it right, it might give IPS a run for the money.

LoL, No, no ,no Im ignorant....because my IPS displays a loading bar just to respond to inputs and who needs color for their expensive GPU's to display when everything can be displayed in 1000 different shades of tinted white. And your welcome. wink.gif

The pixel response time is 6ms for the cheap Korean IPS monitors, that is where the ghosting/blur comes in to play. And to be honest the 1ms tn panels is noticeablely less blurry vs IPS panels, but it isn't all that. Especially when compared to 60 hz monitors, tn or not. And I personally don't find it effects gameplay one iota. Ghosting/blur at 120hz on a cheap Korean IPS is way better than 60hz monitors say 50% better IMO, but not as good as the perfection on the 120hz 1ms tn's.


As far as input lag that is a totally different beast and imo, it isn't noticeable at all between the cheap single input oc koreans and the "pro" "gaming" monitors take into fact that the very best human reactions times make it negligible, you are into "marketing" hype territory if you think it is helping you.

That's my opinion, I may be wrong as this is subjective territory, so dont take offense.

Good quality IPS panels have pretty fast response times these days. Not faster than a TN but good enough for anyone who isn't a pro gamer.

Other than that, can anyone make a case for a TN panel?
