27" IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor WQHD 2560x1440 [monoprice.com]

3 models above, one has all inputs and the other is just a barebones DVI. 27inch is also in stock now!(Edit: OOS again =(

Insane price for a 30inch IPS, and the panel inside is from a "LOWER GRADE" Apple Cinema/HP/Dell. These are grade A-/A panels while Apple/Dell/HP All have A/A+ panels. Get them while they're hot as the 27 inch is already sold out.

Use coupon catalog12 to lower the price noted on the top.

Quote from nicotinic View Post :
Let's be clear that you are agreeing, that beyond hardware limitations, one will notice a difference if the frame rates are not locked down and exceed 60fps you will see a difference. To me the game I experienced it on was Half life 2 it was too fast in my opinion and made me nautious.
If we can mention the modern tv screen that redraws frames to achieve 120hz you will notice a difference. It's similar to the controversy over using 48fps while filming the Hobbit, the actors weren't moving any differently but people notice. Compare a 30fps game on a 30hz screen to a 30fps game on a 120hz screen and I believe you'll notice a difference. My
.02
LCD panels of all types Phosphor. They do not switch on and off 60/120 times per second. There may be some noticeable difference, but it is just the slightest flash at faster intervals when the screen redraws the image.

That said, I am not disagreeing with you. I have not personally seen 120 Hz monitors with 120 Hz capable hardware driving it while playing 120 Hz media. In fact, I have never even heard an example of such.

FPS means nothing in this context. I am speaking of the actual display itself. And everything that drives it, not to mention the source media and cabling. If any one of those cannot manage 120 hz then all fall back to the highest supported by each.

People say they see Angels and Demons and flying leprechauns too. I think that more often than not people are mistaken about what they believe they see.

Again, I am not saying that 60 hz is as good as 120 hz. I am rather asking for an example so I can see for myself. Can anyone explain a real example that can be done by us? My GPU drivers forbid 120 hz in and of themselves. (Radeon 5850) So I would have to see it elsewhere. Thanks in advance for any examples that can be given.

do these have HDCP support? Not having it can make watching blu rays or cablecard HDTV content interesting...

Check Innovative arms. They are heavy duty, but also in price Smilie ( 300$-500$ ).

Thanks. But considering the U3011 weighs 20lbs without stand, and is widely reported to be compatible with the Ergotron, I think that's a better choice. I'd rather spend $400 extra on the monitor than the monitor arm, and I love the Ergotron.

Amazing price for an 30".

However, I think gamers should consider the extra costs required to play games at a high setting on this thing's native resolution.

Its not that its a bad product, but even at the lowest price I could find it, there is better out there for a few hundred less. I do have a thunderbolt mac to take full advantage of it though... Still this deal, I'd be all over it.

Any Idea if the Ergotron LX Dual arm can hold two 30" U3011 at once? Or at least one, and maybe another 24" or so.

I have no idea, but considering the U3011 is 20.4lbs and the Ergotron LX dual-arm is rated up to 20lbs per arm, I suspect it should work just fine.

dont forget thunderbolt is owned by intel. also apple pushed the displayport standard (which is royalty free.) and technically speaking, hdmi<displayport<thunderbolt. at least until hdmi 2.0 comes out.

I could really go for some 2560x1600 goodness... but I just got 2 Achieva Shimian 27" 2560x1440 displays like 6 months ago.... I can't make any excuse that would rationalize blowing that much money on more monitors :c

This is true. I had to upgrade my SLI GTS250 setup in order to game at 2560x1440. It just can't handle it (By handle it, I mean maxing games out, they were still playable). You will be burning up your VRAM so much more on the higher resolution, and you won't be able to get away with a 128-bit memory bus. 256-bit is the minimum at this resolution and you'll want at least a GTX 650 to do anything respectable. I upgraded to a GTX 680 4GB FTW because some games will take more than 2GB at max settings and your framerate just dies then.

A lot of people recommend the Radeon 7970 with it's 384-bit bus and 3GB VRAM for gaming at these resolutions. I would have, but it only has one single-link and one dual-link DVI. I needed both dual :c
