Anyone that is in to mid to high-end PC gaming this monitor is for them! Gorgeous 144hz motion, 1ms response time, and with Lightboost! If anyone has not heard of the new 2d Lightboost feature it is an amazing feature that must be seen!
Detailed here: http://www.techngaming.com/home/g...boost-r485

The monitor just released so im surprised Newegg has in discounted. Gota love the Egg :worship: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...8qslgvu4j6

do today's video cards support 1080p@144hz?

beta. 01-28-2013 11:06 AM

Actually, you are incorrect, Amazon is selling the monitor for $279.99, look again. The only advantage Newegg has over Amazon ATM is availability.

Sure they do. It really depends on the game engine. I can get 250-280fps in some gpu less intense games, but of course thats unneeded and i just lock it to my refresh rate.

haha me too :D but have you ever seen (in your display preferences), 1920x1080 @ 144hz?

No I have 120hz monitors. From the reviews I have read 144fps @ 144hz is just slightly smoother than 120fps @ 120hz. The Lightboost tech makes the largest leap in the smoothness quality.

anyone ever read if anything like this is coming in a higher res desktop monitor (soon)?

I don't think that matters (plus you can make custom profiles). The limit should be the weakest link in your system. Assuming you have a current high end computer (and the game you are trying it on isn't too demanding) I would guess the weakest link would be the DVI connector which is limited to 165Hz.

Yeah, I think I saw somewhere that you'd have to use HDMI to get 4096x2160 @ 60hz. Hmmmm...

The limitation is the video card. I doubt Nvidia even goes that high (I know AMD doesn't).

Some of the catleaps can do 120hz, but it seems that those are getting segmented into a higher price point and becoming less available.

Keep in mind that this is a TN panel, so color, viewing angles, and image quality are going to suck compared to IPS. On the other hand, it has lightboost, 3D vision 2, and 144hz refresh.

That limitation is due to the difficulty of driving a 2560x1440 display. Modern cards can drive 120 or 144hz, it's just a question of whether you'll see those framerates during a given task.

You most certainly can game at those refresh rates in 1920x1080.

The question is: is there any reason to wait for the BenQ XL2411t?

It was the original batch (I'm kinda pissed i went for a Achieva Shimian IPSB instead... but I was probably the first person to get it, at least on Overclock). And they stopped making the PCB that could drive 60+Hz, although most people only got around 90Hz, which is still smoother.

Actually the issue isn't with GPUs as you can get enough of them to drive 120Hz at 1440p, the issue is the DVI-DL standard itself, on paper, it doesn't have enough bandwidth to push that much data. That's why some people had to buy better gold plated cables before theirs worked. I mean the panels are "capable" the only difference between my monitor and a OCable catleap is the PCB (which some company was talking about making, i forget which)

Ah, that's true. I hadn't considered the actual throughput of dvi-dl... was thinking of res and refresh separately and that you were addressing 1080 @ 120hz. Kneejerk reaction, must still be in Work Mode.

edgeh2o 02-04-2013 04:44 PM

No reason to get the $380 Benq over this right?

SomeDooD123 02-04-2013 05:58 PM

z0mg! I can has leet skills with this

cjhatesu 02-05-2013 05:47 PM

Thanks. I was going to wait for Amazon to get restocked with these, but after getting an email this morning from them estimating delivery late Feb or early March I decided to cancel. Back in the day I wouldn't mind ordering from Newegg, but these last couple years they seem to have really gone down the crapper. Their shipping is slow as hell and they are horrible to deal with if you need to return a defective product that they sent you, but hopefully using Shoprunner will remedy this.

Actually a really good deal for something that has better response time than a 120hz monitor for gaming.

Comes close in relation to the BenQ monitors

Save 30.00 (10%)

279.99 + Free shipping with shoprunner

tennis8363 02-14-2013 07:29 AM

Price in title would save time. Thanks!

vahnz 02-14-2013 07:30 AM

first time ever making a thread, thanks for the input

carigis 02-14-2013 08:10 AM

Thanks for the post but...

not much of a deal off its MSRP price. Now if this was the model that came with the nvidia glasses, at this price it would be a good deal.. 10% off retail is no biggie. thats an everyday sale price. Its been that price for at least 2 weeks now at newegg.

I also think I read somewhere these have a problem with a green tint or something. but it seems like it has great newegg user reviews.

oh yeah. and this post is also a repost. was already posted on 2/5.

lol..

more like checked previous slick deals posts... something everyone should do BEFORE posting an item. type in search box model number... no wizardry here. my son.

mryanbrown 02-14-2013 09:25 AM

This is the erryday normal price @ Newegg, at least for the past month.

Mummel 02-14-2013 09:27 AM

This is fail... Repped for effort.

edgeh2o 02-14-2013 12:34 PM

When I saw this in my email I had hoped it had gone on sale, but this is the price its been at since it first came out so I don't know why this was posted?

edgeh2o 02-17-2013 08:49 PM

FYI, the Asus VG248QE is now down to $265 backordered through Amazon (was $279 backordered last night from Amazon, and is now $289 from Newegg). I've been refreshing reviews and tracking this monitor at Newegg and Amazon for the past couple weeks wondering why I hadn't pulled the trigger yet. I'm stoked I waited, the extra $15 off through Amazon did it for me.

Even though Amazon says it ships in 3-5 weeks, I'm confident it will ship much sooner. A week ago, this was also backordered at Amazon stating 3-5 weeks, and the next day it was back in stock. So stoked to start gaming again, now I just need to pull the trigger on a video card, which I've been wrestling with since summer of last year.

One of the companies I know that is now selling a 120hz PCB is Overlord computer, I haven't tried them but linking for reference.

i've had for about a week so far and i really like it. Don't expect it to amaze you but it will smooth things out a lot. I've noticed differences in MOBA and FPS games mostly. Not much in ROTS.

This is a good price for a 120-144Hz refresh rate monitor, i'd certainly recommend it over any dell ultrasharp IPS. However I wouldn't buy this if you were looking to replace an existing monitor (unless you really hate it).
