    ASUS released pictures of its upcoming VG248QE 24-inch 3D monitor, built for gaming. It supports a blazing fast 144 Hz refresh rate, which ensures an eye-pleasing 72 Hz per-plane when using stereoscopic 3D. It is based on an older TN-film panel that's LED-backlit, but its narrower viewing angles shouldn't matter to gamers. Apart from its stellar refresh rate, it features 1 ms response time, and 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. It needs dual-link DVI or DisplayPort 1.2, to keep up with its steep bandwidth requirements. HDMI is also available, though it could limit refresh-rate to 72 Hz (due to lack of bandwidth). The VG248QE stand supports height, tilt, and 90° pivot rotation (to a portrait mode). It packs 2W stereo speakers. ASUS Splendid software comes included, which lets you tweak image quality and display clock. All this could come with a hefty price-tag, around 3,000 Swedish Kronor including 25% VAT (US $450).

    Sorry, I'd rather scoop my eyeballs out with a blunt melon baller than stare at a TN for any length of time.
    hellrazor and Ikaruga say thanks.

    There are a lot of formulas to make a screen display great. But 450 dollars for a 24 inch TN-based screen is alot, even if it has special faster refresh rate. They are using the stand support of the PA series and i guess that they are charging you 100 dollars just for that (though it is a REALLY good system).

    Gawddamit Frick. You troll every TFT thread saying TN, 1024x768, 30Hz refresh, greyscale, VGA, pixels so big you can measure them with a ruler, bicycle dynamo powered, ... "good enough for me" nonsense! Yet you packed up your AGP for a nice shiny new 7770 and drive a 2560x1440/1600. You are a living oxymoron. No, a "Fishfaced Nincompoop" :rofl:

    Let the people want moar! :pimp:

    I recently bought the bigger 27" VG278HE version with 144Hz refresh rate and it's awesome! This won't disappoint.

    Very interesting - bookmarked! :)

    The 3D Vision glasses elminate motion blur with their strobing, so the technique works. When we finally get LED-based monitors (as in the pixels, not the backlight) that's when we'll see the best of all worlds, blowing away all previous display technologies.
