As far as 3D vision... I would never attempt to play video games in 3D.
Chaz Palio
Now, when I play games like Team Fortress 2, I get 120 FPS due to this monitor running at 120Hz and man...I'm invincible!

I'd recommend this to any and all my friends looking to buy new or upgrade.

It was a Friday when my VG236HE was to be delivered. I stayed home all day waiting for it, checking the tracking info practically every five minutes. Noon came and went. 1:00, 2:00... 4:00, came and went. Around 6:30 I started getting frustrated. I had never seen a delivery truck out that late before, so I started thinking back to when I could have missed the knock on the door. By 8:00 I had accepted defeat, it was Friday, I missed my delivery, and now I'd have to wait 'til Monday. But then - at 9:45 at night! The door bell rings, and sure enough there's a Fedex truck pulling out of my driveway and an enormous box blocking my door.

So now that I've had a weekend to play around with it I have to say, it's everything I hoped it to be. Extremely bright (I've had to turn brightness all the way down to 44), extremely clear (due to running 1920x1080 on a rather small screen), the glare from the glossy screen isn't an issue (due to how adjustable the monitor is), and if you can get your games to run at 100+ frame rates it'll bring tears of joy to your eyes. Slick as ice, smooth as butter, the clarity of motion is incredible. I loaded up a new game of Oblivion and spent ten minutes just running around in circles in the jail cell with a dumb smile on my face. Playing at 120hz really is just like playing on a CRT, and is something I've been craving ever since having to make the switch to flat screens years and years ago.

There is a downside though. If you can't run your games at 100+ fps, a 120hz monitor really doesn't seem all that different from any ol' flat screen. And when it comes to running modern games at those kind of frame rates, I've found my trusty ol' HD4870 is no longer up to the task, so now I've had to buy a new video card as well. But I don't even care, because there's no going back. Now that I have a taste of 120hz, I'll do whatever it takes.

I purchased this monitor after reading all the great things about it. When I first got it, I was very happy with the purchase and being a gamer, I was very happy with the performance. Prior to this monitor, my desk had one 23" 60hz LCD and a 19" CRT for some older games that didn't perform as well on an LCD such as counter-strike 1.6. Straight out of the box, running this LCD at 120hz for such games, it performs beautifully and has been the closest to a CRT that I've come across. It's not the perfect replacement, but the difference is so negligible that I will be getting rid of my CRT and finally freeing up some space on my desk. Color wise, everything looks great. Viewing movies at 1080 also seem smoother than my older LCD. I have yet to calibrate this monitor, but out of the box, I'm happy with it. I still have not tried the 3D features of this monitor as I'm looking more for a 120hz monitor that can handle 2D stuff as well as a CRT. I'm not a big fan of the whole 3D thing.
As for the negative aspect of my review which brings it only down to 4 stars is the quality of this monitor. My first monitor I received had a button that was kinda hard to press as I was trying to adjust some settings. And while I was browsing the web, noticed there was a dead/stuck pixel in the middle of the screen slightly to the left. It isn't visible unless I'm on a bright colored screen but using my e-mail a lot for work, I see it often. Just knowing it's there is very bothersome to me as I'm very particular with the electronics I buy. Amazon was great with replacing the monitor and sent me one immediately in the mail. The second one I received worked fine except this time, there were at least 4-5 dead/stuck pixels making a vertical line on the bottom left of the screen.

Let me preface by saying I do not and will not EVER use this monitor for 3D. I am not into that--it gives me headaches and causes sensory overload.

I bought this monitor to receive a more "fluid" experience navigating Windows and playing FPS's (mainly bought it for BF3 release). Let me tell you...you WILL notice a difference between 60Hz and 120Hz. The people who claim, "The human eye can't keep up with a higher refresh rate than 60Hz" are pulling your leg. Since I'm running GTX 570 SLI, I was running into my monitor capping framerates at 60 FPS. Now, when I play games like Team Fortress 2, I get 120 FPS due to this monitor running at 120Hz and man...I'm invincible!

Your reflexes and handling of the computer--whether it be on the desktop or in games--will be much more fluid and you will NEVER go back to 60Hz again.

I switched from a brand new 34" Viewsonic 60Hz LED, and I thought I'd miss the colors and vivid images; however, this monitor outperforms it in every way. The colors are brighter, images more crisp. I don't even think of going from LED to LCD as a drawback now that I've spent some time with this baby.

Note: I know quality control seems to be an issue with this product, but my monitor came with no stuck pixels, random lines, or flashes/glitches. If yours does, simply use Amazon's excellent customer service and get a replacement--don't "deal with it" like some of the other reviewers have when you don't have to suffer!

The Asus VG236HE is a pretty decent monitor out of the current 120hz monitors out at the moment. I'm currently going on my third one in the last two months. Waiting on Asus to respond to my RMA request. First one I recived had a bunch of dead pixels and horrid backlight bleeding. The second one had pretty bad color uniformity. The top and bottom were alot brighter than the center of the screen, but it wasn't bad enough to return. Amazon did an amazing job replacing the first one and even cross-shipped next day air my replacement at no charge. They even sent UPS to my house to pick it up.

Now after almost two months of use with the monitor, it started making popping and clicking sounds every once in awhile. Then I turned on my computer to be welcomed to a vertical red line and a horizontal white line going across the screen. I'm not sure if it's bad luck or horrible quality control. Both monitors were labled as being made in August of 2010. Maybe a bad batch?

The sad thing is it's really hard to adjust back to a non 120hz monitor. I notice input lag and ghosting I never did before on my good ol' Dell 2407WFP.

Other than those issues, it is a nice monitor when working. I couldn't get the colors just right, but they were alot more vibrant than my Dell. The viewing angles are rather bad, but that's TN panel tech I believe. The monitor is extremely glossy and may be annoying in rooms with alot of light or next to a window. Gaming was a dream on it. I didn't buy the 3D glasses so I don't know how well that is.

In hindsight I wish I waited to buy this, but to be honest I am pretty jaded because of the issues so it is affecting my opinion.
