100 Hz is fast enough to strobe the backlight that you shouldn't have eye-strain. It will be interesting to see how quick the pulses are on ASUS's new "ELMB" and how bright it can get for extreme motion clarity.

Pre-ordered on Amazon and will post my thoughts upon receiving.

I used to get extreme eye strain from my Acer with 100Hz ULMB. It isnt really high enough until the frequency is at least around 350Hz+ for flickering backlights such as PWM usage or strobing

You can't compare PWM vs a proper strobing backlight. PWM pulses regardless of the refresh rate and the current state of the image = headache. A perfectly strobed synchronous refresh rate like ULMB is much easier on the eyes. 120+ pulses per second is ideal but 100 isn't a show stopper. In the CRT days, it was widely agreed that at about 85 Hz and above the eyestrain lessened greatly.

I typo'd one of the letters in the model nomenclature in the thread title, sent them an email to hopefully fix.

Thats nice. Doesn't change personal experience though.

Bump. Any updates? 7th of December now and little sign that this will be launching in mid December in Europe unless we hear something soon. At this rate im not sure if i should hold out for this or simply settle for the ASUS MX34VQ instead...?

That is when I'm expecting mine from Amazon to ship.

Yeah that's the American amazon but still no sign of any preorders available in the UK although i did find one place in Germany with preorders and they made this video review:

What's the difference between ULMB and ELMB?
Is it only that ULMB comes with G-Sync?
