    120hz is nice, but with shutter glasses you'll be seeing flickers at 60hz.
    This can cause headaches in a lot of people.

    Personally i'm holding out for some 240hz LCD monitors. Or i may just go with a 240hz 24" LCD TV.

    I think this monitor is perfect for me, it's just the price that's killing it. I don't know why, but because it's 120hz, the price goes up drastically. I'll wait for it to drop a couple of month's or otherwise just get a 75hz with 2 ms monitor.

    I doubt 240hz screens will come out anytime soon, so you'll be waiting for a while. As it stands now, acer, samsung and viewsonic have the only 120hz screens out. Asus was working on one as well, but I don't know what happened to that.

    But at the moment this screen has the best specs of the entire 120hz lcd lineup. That's is color, hz, and ms. Size is always a preference:p

    A 120/240hz TV does not work on the same principle as a 120hz monitor. The monitor has its actual refresh rate at 120hz while the TV interposes a second image in the 60 per second to give the appearance of 120hz. Same thing with 240hz, just it adds in 3 extra images every second. So instead of having one image every second for 60hz, you get two or four each second for the 120 and 240hz respectively. A 120/240hz TV will not work with the nVidia 3D Vision stuff at all, two different principles.

    As for the Acer monitor here, its quite nice and at least its 1920x1080.. but I'd like a 1920x1200 res lol. Ah well, I'll just keep saving up for an e-IPS or H-IPS panel.
