My problem with all those gaming lcd's is that they all use tn panels which are not that great image quality wise.

Not all TNs are made equal, TN panels (while still inherently inferior to IPS and MVA picture wise) found on expensive monitors like the BenQ XL2420T and PX2370 are great, I've seen them personally and not only are they vibrant but also have great contrast ratio, granted I'm not a photographer and I'm not avid with color accuracy. I guess its best to wait on a tftcentral review to see if its really good.

Yeah, 170 degrees if you don't mind your picture in monochrome.
I hope it works better than my last Philips product. A 22 watt CFL that was supposed to last 8,000 hours but barely lasted 1,000.

Wait, 2 years? And every time I ask around I always get smacked with "they don't exist".
So where are these 120Hz 2560x1440 monitors at?

Go to eBay and look for "Yamakasi Catleap 120Hz". It's $630 right now.

Because white gaming is better to have a faster response time than a higher color accuracy.

I can get over the TN panel for a 144Hz refresh rate. Don't bash it until you have experienced it. Anyway, you can make the colors more bearable often with a simple profile download.

Really? Because I thought most technology was made in factories located in China, Korea,...

Hey guys, just want to know if there's a monitor with a 2560 x 1600 res ips display 1 ms response time and 120 hz refresh rate that supports Nvidia 3D Vision. Am i just asking too much?

Employee wages are high enough that it's cheaper for the company to send the product to China, build it there, and send it back CHEAPER then building it in the USA. Think about that.

i did, and you make no sense. ever heard the term "cost of living"? no? i didn't think so.

now that i noticed, you don't even know what point you're trying to make. a rebranding of said korean panels would suffice. almost nothing is made in the US.

...They aren't Korean panels, actually, they're Samsung/LG panels that failed quality control...

And yes, I don't know how I would live without my $80/hr, after all I have a family to feed

So for $460 I can get something from Philips that's been available from other manufacturers (24" 120+Hz 1080p monitors) for around $250-$300.

Hotcakes do not come to mind when I think about future sales of these monitors.

Heck yeah, Stoogie! This is what I've been asking for for a couple of years. I'm not sure I'd hop on the Korean panels though as they all seem to be hit or miss with the refresh rates and for those that do support higher refresh rates, they have to be OC'd.

I would upgrade my gaming monitor right away if someone would start selling a 2560x1440 120Hz+ ips or TN with 1ms response and low input lag. Seems input lag is a stopper on the IPS monitors (why can't they get these faster?). Seems like resolution is the stopper with TN panels (why can't they go higher than 1080p and lower than 4K?).

1080p.. 24"... for how much? No thank you.
Here is what I want = 29"+ (preferably 32) WQHD (1440 or 1600), IPS, 120mhz priced at $350-$500.
It can be done if they gear some manufacturing towards it. 32 and over would essentially be focused towards the TV market, but us gamers and gfx designers would scoop them up.
I know they are massively trying to sell and push 4K to the TV/Movie watching masses, but 2K can make money NOW and they are badly overlooking this.
No one I know has enough bank to dish out $35K for a 4K set and its virtually non-existent content right now; however, if a 2K 32" set appeared for around $400 or $500, I'd buy 2 or 3 of them within 24 hours.
