I really love benq blur reduction, I want a different monitor but I can't see them giving the same experience and benq hasn't brought and as far as I know, isn't bringing out new monitors for awhile still.. wanting something like IPS with blur reduction magic..
I just played some TF2 on the 4ms IPS and was experiencing some very mild motion sickness. The constant blur when running around on a small map and spinning 180 degrees to prevent backstabs started to give me some very mild motion sickness. It's like being drunk where your vision is smeared until you stop to focus on something. I can't see IPS doing well with any game that requires you to change directions quickly (FPS) unless it has a blur-reduction like the Acer XB270HU bprz or ASUS PG279Q (both g-sync monitors unfortunately). My Trace Free setting is at the recommended level of 60.
This is actually pretty surprising given almost every 4ms IPS owner on the internet swears 3ms wont matter or won't be noticeable to anyone who isn't a professional gamer. I hate to use the term fanboy-ism -- since at the end of the day we all love video games -- but that must be what it is. I would guess they haven't used comparable TN and IPS monitors side-by-side. There is a difference and it is definitely noticeable (in my opinion).
That feel when my i5-3570K is struggling with 1440p TF2 because the source engine is so CPU dependent. 390 at 51C...
Also if I understand correctly, given the way blur reduction blacks out the screen for so many milliseconds per frame, I would expect an IPS to be much dimmer than a TN for the same "low blur" performance. An IPS won't finish forming the image until the last 2-3 ms of each frame display. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
