I’ve been searching the Internet for advice on my next PC/console monitor purchase and came across a good deal on the LG D2342P-PN. It’s an LED monitor with all three connectors I want, and even 3D mode at 120Hz—which I didn’t want but why not have?
Then, I read some reviews of it and the biggest simple complaint I read was that this monitor does not support 120Hz in 2D mode. Huh? Who needs 2D mode at 120Hz? The last time I checked, 60fps was the speed everyone wanted their games to run in, which is the same as the refresh speed of most monitors, but now we’re aiming for, presumably, 120fps? Or, is it 60fps in 120Hz, that we want? (Even then, why?)
What are the advantages of running a monitor in 120Hz in 2D mode (for general use, films and games)?
I understand why 120fps in 3D is good (single eye flickering, or whatever it’s called, which in effect produces 60fps across both eyes), but why in 2D mode?
