    Hey Hilbert, I think it's wishfull for most of us if we'd know one more specification with new monitors.
    TN/IPS/PVA (etc).
    As that is the last specification we all like to know with these monitors.
    A shame this is a "Panel Backlight / Type : TN" as ASUS said, otherwise i would have bought atleast one... :<

    I am flabbergasted to learn companies like Asus still supporting old crappy TN technology -- more than 45y old :bang:

    IPS is not physically possible to reach 240hz.

    Furthermore, they want that 1ms gtg so that it is appealing to the "gamer" group.

    unless i missed some "secret" tech,all lcd based screens are back/edge lit.
    has nothing to do with the type of (lcd) panel used.

    @Juni0rM1nt
    HDDs are +50y old, and basic car design is over 100y old.
    So what's your point??

    Competitive FPS gamers will see the benefit of these kind of screens.
