It's not a problem.... until you actually upgrade to 120+hz. Then nothing less will do.

I RMA'd my first 120hz monitor due to some stuck pixels, gaming on my secondary 60hz monitor while I waited for the replacement to arrive felt awful in comparison. Hell, even just moving a cursor around on the Windows desktop or attempting to read text whilst scrolling just wouldn't do. It's not something you know you're missing until you've become used to it.

120hz is the best upgrade I've ever made and I would recommend it (or 144hz) to anybody who would like to have the most fluid gaming experience as possible. It's not the right choice for the IPS colour accuracy junkies, but if you're a serious FPS player, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

COD4 promod @ 250fps / 120hz is godly, playing Quake Live @ 120hz is a throwback to the glory of the CRT days. 60hz is like slow motion once you've been to the Light (boost) side.

I'll stick it out until we've got 120Hz 4MP displays.

Actually looks like a perfect monitor from an honest vendor. I like that.

That vendor also has "perfect pixel" variants for a little extra.

PS - never bought one, so I'm just looking at it from the outside.

My $.02.

I bought a 120Hz monitor and was not very impressed. A little, not as much as I expected to be, but to be honest it would be nicer just to have a better resolution to see more data.

Seeing the mouse pointer/text scroll, seeing text/graphics move at slightly better fluidity, just didn't wow me like I had been led to believe it would.

That's it. Glad I could speak on this subject. :)

I really appreciate your comments as well, it kind of sums up the "feeling" that I thought I would have had and hence why I came here to ask the question.
