A 27" 1080p? Barf. We've seen a 120Hz IPS is possible with hardware that wasn't even meant for it, now give it to us in a properly engineered product.

Horrible specs and a strange Hz rating, should be at least IPS 1920*1200.

Have you taken to account of demand and yield issues?

Horrible specs and a strange Hz rating, should be at least IPS 1920*1200.
Unless you are willing to spend over $9000 for a monitor I am afraid you should learn to get use to 1080p, IPS or not. Also, IPS is traditionally much slower than TN (in terms of refresh), so come back in a year or two and there will be IPS :)

the problem of the 120hz version are the gamma too bright...

impossible to set on the monitor and if you set on windows, in game the setting have no effect...

S27A950D give me the joy....

i'm happy with the higher refresh rate, but 1080p isnt really what people want in a 27".


the fact that its 3D as well means the price is gunna be a killer.

I don't understand when we will have an even bigger monitor than that, say 30", higher resolution and 120hz. until then, I'm stuck with my samsung s27a950d...

So now people are buying 3D capable monitor and 3D kit separately?

I've seen 144Hz on a CRT monitor and yeah, it really is superfluid. How long until we see 240Hz? :cool:

Apple have shown us that high pixel densities needn't break the bank, and I'm way, way more interested in sheer pixel count than I am in 3D or silly refresh rates.

Got one of them cheap-ass-no-warranty LG 1440p IPS screens here and I can tell you that both picture quality and snappiness feel a world above my 2 year old "2ms" Samsung TN.

We've had 120Hz TV's (and those are not freaking TN) for years. The tech is there, we just need at least one manufacturer to wake up and make 100-120Hz IPS computer screen with minimal or non-existing post processing and DisplayPort official. A 24" 1080 panel like that can easily sell for $300-400, a 27" 1440 will fit nicely in $600-700 and PC gamers will line up and buy them. Whoever starts making them will turn a hefty profit, as long as they cut down on wasteful features like "speakers", internal scaler, D-Sub and possibly even the freaking HDMI.

Who's up for starting a petition? :rockout:

Why no displayport on this monitor? Strange.

Why do I feel like monitor manufacturers are stuck in 2005?

120HZ TV's are not the same technology as 120HZ computer monitors. 120HZ TV's can only accept a 60HZ signal, it is then reprocessed to make it appear as 120HZ.

I believe that's common knowledge by now.

My point is that even if they wait two frames, interpolate one in between and then proceed to display frame 1 after however much processing delay, it's still a panel that pops up 120 frames per second. Hence, 120Hz non-TN computer screens are long, long overdue.

There is no reason that manufs couldn't start giving us 200Hz IPS 2560x1440 21" at EUR 500. The reason they dont? Too many people happy to shell out on poor spec x1080 for their PCs. People stop buying last years TVs and want the latest tech and will pay top$ for TVs. Unfortunately, people still buy the "cheapest" PC monitors... and that is what continues to drive the market.

pretty good. so u'll get 72 fps on each eye in 3D.
But I'm still waiting until a 27" 2560x1440/2560x1600 120 hz comes out. It would be very long I think. And when it comes out, 80%- 90% of us can't afford it anyway.

Good point. I've got 3D Vision and you can see the 60Hz flicker in each eye at times, especially with large light coloured areas. Running at 72Hz will significantly reduce this. 100Hz per eye would really nail the flicker, but I don't think we'll see that any time soon.

i just want a 100/120Hz IPS, even if its 1080p and 24"



around here, thats too much to ask. you can get 120Hz, but its always TN and 3D (no one wants 3D damnit!)

agreed. I do want a monitor with 120hz NON-3D. So maybe it's cheaper.

I don't think there's a difference between 120hz 3D and 120hz non-3D - I think it's the 120hz part that makes it 3D-compatible (and maybe some doohicky to converse with the glasses about which eye it's showing).
