120Hz monitor search
« on: June 24, 2011, 10:16:31 pm »
requirements:
budget: $400
LED backlit: preferred
size: 23" or above

I'm looking for a good monitor that has those features but most of all is 120Hz. I have looked at the one's listed below, but anyone have any other one's that I can look at?

-BenQ XL2410T
-Acer GD235HZbid
-ASUS VG236HE

Thanks

Monitors still works in Hz frequency? ??? I thought that didn't exist since LCDs?

yep, for vertical and horizontal refresh rates. Usually you'll see a 60Hz one, but I'm looking for better

Oh ok, but what does 120 Hz offers that 60 Hz doesn't? Is it for 3D gaming or something?

basically, in gaming you can't see any performance increase once it's above 60 fps with a 60Hz monitor. However, you can see up to 120 fps on a 120Hz monitor. Makes everything more responsive.

Also you can drag windows around even and you'll notice it's more crisp and responsive than a normal monitor.

Also, with a 120hz monitor, you can use it as a 3d display, provided you get the glasses.
