Summary: Just one word; 120hz. It's the best thing happened to gamers. I don't care about 3d, I just bought this monitor for 2d 120hz option and I couldn't be happier... I gotta say that if you're a gamer, this is your monitor. Forget about the fancy IPS panels, they're just good for photographers and designers, this is the real deal for us. Now I don't know why the price went up like 100$, but I bought it for 270$...
Summary: I'll start with the pros of this monitor. Very nice industrial style adjustable stand. Very little noticeable back-light bleed while in dark scenes. Great company to deal with warranty work and customer service out of Oregon. Fast 120 refresh rate for 2d gaming and general desktop use. You will notice smoother 2d gaming performance especially if your graphics card is on the upper end. No dead pixels on the unit I purchased and firmware is up to date.
Summary: I did alot of looking around for a new gaming monitor because i wanted a 120hz monitor. I finaly chose this one and i'm not dissapointed at all. The difference was instantly noticeable when i booted up a game. I can't comment on the 3D capabilities because i didn't have an interest in buying the glasses to try it out,but the 2d 120hz is pretty awesome. would definetly recommend this to someone looking for a non glossy gaming monitor.
Summary: I gotta say, I jumped at the thought of getting a 3D monitor with no ghosting or crosstalk. I did my research and it led me to this monitor. Now there is some new issue with called "white banding" that I'm getting only when I play in 3D at the top and bottom of the screens. It's some kind of technique they use to rid the monitor of ghosting, but it creates a new annoying effect. Since I'm kind of a newbie to 3D LCDs, I suggest you read this review - [...
Summary: Received this unit from Amazon (CircuitCity) two days ago, finally hooked it up yesterday. Wow... the back light is amazingly bad. Very dark in the top corners, way too bright at the bottom. I am putting this up here for reference for others to see (including CircuitCity) since I plan on returning this unit for another.
Summary: I recently did some research into what the best 3D vision monitor is currently and came across this. As of this review, my research suggests that this monitor has the least level of crosstalk/ghosting of any LCD on the market. Running at 120hz using the dual link DVI cable is nice but where this thing really shines is 3D. The overall 3D experience is great with the Nvidia 3D vision kit, it is a new level of immersion into video games.
