correct me if im wrong with this.

well its a hard decision for me honestly haha


Yep you are pretty close with those statements.

Difficult decision I know, all depends on what your primary use for the monitor will be. I can honestly say though the Korean X-Star 1440p PLS panel I purchased through Amazon is one of the best purchases I have made in some time. Grabbed a 3 year square trade warranty in case something happens down the road for added peace of mind.

Looks like in the near future (hopefully), the decision will be much easier with the best of both worlds combined.

Best of luck with your choice

No one recommends overclocking the refresh rate on monitors? I turned my 60hz monitor into an 70hz monitor. Is it the best? No. Better? Yes. Free? Yes.

Are you fatigued by your current monitor?

A few posts up I mentioned overclocking my Korean panel to 96hz. There is a slightly noticeable difference but not the same ballpark as 120hz with lightboost or the new firware for the Ben-Q's.

60 to 96hz is night and day when a fast paced rotational game is involved. When looking at the ground in World in conflict I barely notice it, but when I play CS, or BF4 it is a WORLD of difference.

Sorry about that. I think I got to post 30 and suggested that. I've read it now. redface.gif

actually i am, thats why i turned down the settings a bit. i spend like 10-15hrs on my computer everyday, so its pretty much strains my eyes.
maybe because of the IPS panels, i dont know
post #48 of 53
Well since your usage and current experience suggest, I would grab something witht he aforementioned technologies to reduce strain.

I would also get my eyes checked just to make sure. Both a monitor and your eyesight are going to be a large part of the investment in your coding/developing.

The Qnix is fast, But I could imagine sitting here for 15 hours might make my eyes hurt a little.

I am now useless to the thread, partly because I dont beleive in marketing gimmick!

Good luck with your decision!

Don't forget motion blur elimination, which eliminates the type of motion blur seen at www.testufo.com/eyetracking

60Hz -- baseline
120Hz -- 50% less motion blur
120Hz strobed -- 90% less motion blur.

Strobe modes include: "LightBoost", "Turbo240" (EIZO), "ULMB", and "BENQ Blur Reduction" for zero motion blur during fast motion.
The same type of strobing is also being introduced as "low persistence" mode in Oculus VR Development Kit 2.

If you want 60Hz color quality with 120Hz, you often have to pay more (e.g. Eizo FG2421) which is a much better-color-quality 120Hz monitor, with an optional strobe mode included. Also, overclockable 120Hz monitors (QNIX) do not include the optional strobe modes, if you want the order-of-magnitude improvement in fast-motion clarity. (also called "low persistence")
