Summary: Alright, after much research and arduous mental decisions, I finally decided on this monitor to upgrade my overall experience on the PC. It did not disappoint. 120mhz changes everything. Gaming is ridiculously smooth now. Everyday operations and internet browsing feels more responsive and in tune.
Summary: First of all, if you want a monitor for gaming, this is the monitor you want. Yes, there are monitors out there that have better gamut, and DPI, thus resulting in a better text reading and photoshopping experience, but this monitor is AIMED at Gaming. Which is all that I do on my custom built beast.
Summary: If you still remember what CRT gaming was like before LCD monitors took over, get ready to be impressed by this monitor. You can run it with ZERO ghosting. I just got mine yesterday and I'm still tweaking my color settings, but I love what I see so far while gaming.
Summary: After using the Asus VG248QE for a couple of days and being severely disappointed with the overall white washed / dirty contrast and poor RBG scaling I decided to return it and order this one.
Best Gaming Monitor. Period. A MUST HAVE for Any Serious Counter Strike Player.

Summary: I used to play Counter Strike on a bad CRT, but even the bad CRT let me play 640x480 @ 120 hz or 800x600 @ 100 hz. Eventually, I got rid of it in favor of an LCD monitor due to the crisp image possible with DVI and the thinner profile. But I had not realized practically all LCD screens were 60 hz.
Summary: This is a great monitor for gaming. I thought that I was going blind, but now I can see that it was just my old monitor. I am impressed with the build quality and the nice stand. The external controller is o.k.
Summary: I am coming from a 60Hz 1080p LCD ASUS monitor that I have had for going on 5 years. This monitor set up quick and after a bit of calibration, is fantastic; a very good investment. There was in instant difference even in just moving the mouse across the screen at 120Hz.
Summary: First off I did not by this for 3D so will not be reviewing that aspect of the monitor. Right away you can tell the build quality of this monitor is top notch. Study and feels like it will last a long time. Out of the box the colors are whack, quick calibration and they are great.
Summary: I debated between a 120hz and a nice IPS monitor, but I decide to go with this monitor, and I couldn't be happier. Any game above 60-70 fps looks awesome. I've gone as far as lowering some settings in games to get higher fps and a smoother experience.
Summary: I had to sell my asus vg248qe cause the PWM was making my eye water and strain only after 1 hour of gameplay I decided to spend a few extra cash on this monitor since it has no pwm and man Im enjoying fluid responsive on 120hz and 144hz also my eye don't hurt anymore either.
