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.
Summary: I was very indecisive between getting this monitor or an IPS. I read numerous reviews about 120hz monitors and how it's suppose to be a lot smoother for gaming and went with this one. Best decision ever.
Summary: I love the Monitor, and I payed a good price but there were a few issues. First of all if you buy the monitor off Amazon, you don't get to return it unless there are 7 dead pixels or 3 dead pixels within a square inch.
The only true gaming monitor; keep in cover when not in use!

Summary: Excellent monitor, perfect for gaming. No imperfections and I bought a refurbished model. I called the warehouse in California ahead of time stressing I wanted the best refurbished they had and told me they were all restored to factory quality.
