You’re used to seeing 120Hz frequencies on LCD TVs. The benefit of 120Hz over 60Hz is that motion blur is reduced when viewing fast moving objects on TV. Viewsonic is bringing that motion blur-busting technology to LCD monitors. The VX2265wm LCD monitor sports a 120Hz frequency and is claimed to be the world’s first for a LCD monitor. The 120Hz frequency is supported by a very fast 3ms response time. The dual-link DVI input is for its stereoscopic 3D capabilities. The contrast ratio of 1000:1 is very good for a monitor.
My guess is that hardcore gaming addicts would kill for the VX2265wm. Or will they. The really crazy gamers already use huge LCD TVs decked out with all the bells and whistles to play games that require supercomputing power. So the VX2265wm seems to be targeted at hardcore gamers who don’t have a budget for a real high-end LCD TV. I hope the price is right.
Eventually, most if not all of the features seen in today’s high-end LCD TVs will filter down to tomorrow’s high-end LCD monitors, except for maybe the digital tuner since we’ll already have one in our desktop or notebook PC. So in the not-so-distant future, expect to see LED backlights with local dimming capability leading to really impressive dynamic contrast when watching movies, 120Hz as a standard feature, greater than 100% NTSC color gamut based on RGB LED backlights, motion interpolation, deinterlacers and upscalers built-in, etc.
