...awesome. Just awesome. I had never seen let alone played on a 120Hz+ monitor. I've been ripping it up in BF4. If you haven't experienced a high refresh rate in FPS games... Check it out. I won't be going back to 60Hz. Ever.

Make sure you try out Lightboost. It is an even bigger leap in terms of visual clarity in games.

Asus/Benq/Samsung 120 Hz LightBoost TWEAK: Zero motion blur LCD; Looks like CRT!!

Second what lowfat said. And let the 60hz IPS still image quality talking noobs admire the color accuracy while they are waiting to respawn. They need the viewing angles because they are leaning back in thier chairs wondering what happened.

Been replaying Dragon Age lately. I quite often just span the camera around just to marvel how clear everything is still. Spanning an overhead camera on my old U2711 just looked like blobs of colour.

Exactly. Black Flag is locked at 60fps and it is killing me. I did dozens of hours on Skyrim, Divinity 2, Arkham Origins, Sleeping dogs, Deus EX, Ghosts and BF4 all at blur free 120hz and now it is like I am back in the 1920's moving picture show. This is why I took offense to the recent review of the Dell IPS. Calling it a decent gaming monitor in the age of 120hz strobing backlight LCD's is a joke.

what sort of frames are you getting in BF4? at what settings ? I want one of these but what hardware will take it to the max ( frames over image) ?

Running 2xEVGA GTX 780 ACX SC SLI. I'm almost always 150-200 fps at 1920x1080 ultra with 4xMSAA. Also a 4770k @ 4.6Ghz and ram at 2400Mhz on windows 8. That said, I was usually above 100fps on a single 780 before I added the second.
