    i read about these 4 months ago at [h] (they've got a 100+ page thread going on). there are a LOT of different versions all using the same S-IPS LG panel. Some have lots of inputs but more latency. some come with dead pixels. some have bad stands, but it still seems like a really good deal.

    I know what it stands for, still I was under the impression the clock rate of that is what limited the resolution and refresh rate. I guess I should be asking what part of the video card is it then which is limited?

    Interesting, it will only be a matter of time for other manufacturers to bring out 120hz monitors/tv's of 27'' or larger.

    Single link DVI/HDMI has a max res of around 1200p at 60Hz 32bit.
    So its possible to do around 1200p 120Hz 32bit with Dual Link DVI while remaining within spec.

    Been reading about these over the weekend, I have signed up at 120hz.net and will get on the 2B train as soon as I can.

    Rolling a 7970 atm so 85hz is max I will be able to run, but even that sounds worth the money.

    Might have to get on the GTX 780 train when they arrive id AMD dont sort out their driver limitations.

    Will post back when I finally get my hands on one of these beasts!

    I never knew that. I always thought HDMI had more bandwidth than DVI, seeing as it is a newer digital display input. So does that mean you have to use two DVI leads with 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 displays then?

    1 DVI will cover 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 at 60hz. So will DP. Just not HDMI at this point in time.

    You need Dual Link DVI - 2x DVI on one connector, one Dual Link DVI cable.

    HDMI has the bandwidth to do much more but it is deliberately restricted.
    For example, the spec states it can do 1080p 48bit 60Hz.
    Given that 32bit colour doesnt carry any more colour data for entertainment/gaming purposes than 24bit colour, it effectively has the bandwidth to pass 1080p 24bit 120Hz, or go higher res instead of higher refresh, however you want to use the bandwidth.
    The modes exposed to us dont reflect what it can do.

    Virtually all modern GPUs and bandwidth heavy monitors have DVI-DL (or DP), you just need to make sure the cable is DVI-DL.

    Has anyone purchased/read any info on this model: FIRST FSM-270HVF

    Same 2560x1440 27", but seems to be the only model with hdmi in and optical out (I want to be able to plug my console in).

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-FIRST-F...r_Monitors&hash=item1c2589667f#ht_7455wt_1163


    Edit: Just realised my console has optical out (no need for optical out of monitor then), ill have a read into the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 27" LED instead

    I am still debating on getting one, any negatives other than the OSD?

    No, the footrest and OSD are the only negatives. In fact I swapped out my Dell 27" and am using the Yamakasi ... it offers better image quality.

    No OSD is not a con, it offers less input lag :) so let's just call it a neutral point

    o jeez.. I'm guessing it's because of the no AG

    Mine came in today, looks awesome 0 dead or stuck pixels almost not back light bleeding.
    I have not messed with the settings yet but its a bit too bright, and made me a little sick like motion sickness playing D3.
