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.

So one day I will buy one of these monitors when they are cheaper in price but also when one of these feature a 120 Hz native refresh rate that you can game on without input lag. I'm not talking about the cheap interpellation that's found on TV sets which will give you 120 Hz at the expense of unplayable input lag for gamers.

i concur, although i too am waiting for 120hz 30"ers to become reasonable priced since my current gateway 30" is still chugging along just fine.
Where can you buy a 120hz 2560x1600 monitor at any price?

Size difference between a 30 and a 27. The one in the middle is a 27 Dell U2711 and the one on the right is a 30 Dell U3011
30 in is huge I love my 30 but wish i got a 27 instead i sit with my eyes about 2ft away.

Yes you can tell the difference between 2 ms and 5 ms on a moving image because of the longer trails "ghosting" on the monitor with higher latency. See the thing is not to be able to see the difference of 3 ms, but rather be able to see the trail left behind in those seconds. When you're moving your mouse really fast in 3 ms you actually move quite a bit distance say like 20 pixels. That means after 3 ms, you'll notice a faint ghosting of 20 pixels.

So the key in this argument is not that you can differentiate between 5 ms and 2 ms based on simply the time difference, because I agree that the milliseconds is not possible to humanly distinguish. However a visual trail of 20 pixels for example is able to be detected by the human eye. And that is the key thing and that's why a difference of only 3 ms can be detectable on a TV screen with moving images.
Several people have said this, yet I find it hard to believe. You are free to believe it and I hope that works out well for you. I will remain a believer in the fact that you cannot see even a 20ms afterimage. Feel free to scream obscenities at your screen in my name. But lets just drop the argument. Neither of us is going to back off.

Thanks to aceofangel for the answer about this being an 8 bit panel. Repped!

In regard to what you said about CRTs., That is not true when you're talking about a moving image because a moving image still has the LCD or LED flicker at a rate of 120 Hz per second. If you're talking about a still image then I agree the LCD lights will stay on constantly without any refreshing. But we're talking about gaming here and game has plenty of moving images and that is why 120 Hz versus 60 Hz makes a difference.

There different a video cards that can pull 120 Hz frames per second. And yes they are costly but hey some people can afford that. Not to mention if you play older games than a midrange card can definitely pull over 120 frames per second. Heck I played Duke Nukem 3-D sometimes on DOS box.
Of course I'm talking about a moving image, what kind of image on a display would not be moving? I don't think many people watch static images on any type of display, gaming or not. Movement has nothing to do with anything; the fact of the matter is that LCD displays physically do not flicker. When you say that word "flicker", it does not happen with an LCD. Flickering is what causes eye strain. It's a thing of the past. Everything on an LCD stays lit constantly and just changes color.

As for the 120 FPS at 2560x1600, well it takes more than any single graphics card to pull this off on modern games. You'd be talking three or four top of the line cards for a reliable 120 FPS. So it's a lot more complicated than just springing a few hundred dollars on a nice video card.

See this Crysis 2 benchmark [tomshardware.com] for two GTX 680s in SLI at 2560x1600 getting 71 FPS.

I hope in the future we see more compatibility with Nvidia's new LCD overclocking ability. you can get a regular TV with 3-D 120 Hz and then force it through Nvidia software to receive a 120 Hz signal. Right now the technology isn't compatible with every TV and people are just kind of winning the crapshoot sometimes and hopefully posting the results on the Internet.

Your 660 would cower and cry in the corner...
The GTX660 is an awesome video card. It should have no problem pushing almost every game at 1600p and highest settings.

I think calling this a LED monitor is quite deceptive. This is an IPS-LCD with LED backlighting. I'm still waiting for the day that true LED displays become mainstream.

It depends on what your definition of "pushing" is. A GTX660 TI averages like 40 fps in games like BF3 with highest settings and dips into the 20s at times.

WTF are you on? All monitors are LCD (fairly sure there are no more CRTs or Plasma computer monitors). The older style used CCFLs and the new style uses LED for backlight.
There will never be a "true" led. There will be OLED monitors (organic LEDs), they already have prototypes (http://ces.cnet.com/1606-34451_1-50138534.html).

Yeah, out of the thousands of games out there, there's like 5 that you can't run with everything maxed using this card. Big deal.

Lol I can list more than 5 on top of my head.

Crysis 3, BF3, Skyrim, Witcher 2, Metro, even GW2...and I intentionally tried not to pick all shooters. This is the GTX660 TI btw, not even the GTX660.
