I've been looking forward to the 240hz 1440p monitors but i really dont want TN anymore. I want one of LGs newer Nano IPS 1ms IPS monitors at 1440p 240hz. I'll settle for current 1ms TN speeds with IPS and let TN move on to faster 0.5ms.
The prices of these monitors really makes me appreciate how i got my C7 last year for $1200 brand new lol.
Yeah but remember when the early 240Hz TN panels which are marketed as 1ms had some trouble in certain transitions? This is the Asus PG258Q: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/images/a...response_8.png
I think the whole "0.5ms" thing is necessary in order to ensure that all transitions are below 4ms for 240Hz operation. The new LG IPS may not be under 4ms overall despite being marketed as 1ms.
