But OP, this is going to be your best bet if you want to find a 120HZ IPS.
But it will cost you like $1,400
. Even then you will have to acquire it through Japan and then pay for importation/duty taxes because it's over like the $200 something limit. So maybe like $2,000? Not worth it. Some of the IPS panels have a function in it called overdrive. Mine has it, I can push the screen to 75HZ but at only certain resolutions in the advanced option menu which is hidden away from regular users. Even then you will not notice a difference between 60HZ and 75HZ because the jump in HZ is not significant enough for you to realize that it is there. The jump in frequency between two frequency points has to be great enough for you to be able to distinguish between the two. This is why many can tell the difference between 60HZ and 120HZ because the gap distance is greater than the 15HZ from a 60HZ frequency to a 75HZ frequency.
So I have no idea what you want to do because there isn't a whole lot of options out there. But like the article mentioned, you would get too much artifacting from overdrive trying to push 120HZ on a IPS panel because that is twice the normal frequency of its operating range. Like you, I was hoping 120HZ IPS would be something of reality but I kind of doubted and stopped waiting for it to happen because it most likely won't happen. OLED is still going to be far better and is already being released on many smart phone devices and even MP3 players. So why would they go backwards and spend the time to improve IPS and push it to 120HZ when they already have OLED? To me that just doesn't make sense.
