"refresh rate" doesn't really apply to LCD monitors. all of them are 60hz. the only thing this really affects is "tearing" in games if you have v-sync disabled. in CRT monitors a fast refresh was preferable due to how they produced the image, but in LCD monitors, this doesn't affect image quality. Here's a good article to check out:
I have this monitor at the time newegg had it as a 28". I am running it with a 4870 512mb and It runs very nice with no problems... however, mine did come with several stuck pix, and 1 dead one. I can hardly notice these unless the screen is black, but not to happy about it. Other then that, the Hanns-G 27.5" is awsome, not bleeding, no ghosting issues, a very nice monitor indeed. I do love this monitor for gaming and bluray play back... Good luck with your purchase, if you get one with no dead or stuck pix, then it is a steal at the price...
well good luck with it, I am sure it will be a great monitor, I just love the extra 4", well 3.5" LOL. I had a 24" Lg that I got from Best buy, paid around $416 dollars for it and it had several dead pics that I could not get out, so I took it back and got a WH 22" and use it for my other builds. No dead pix, and about $220 dollars cheaper. I went for the 28" because of watching movies and gaming is just awsome with it... The stuck or dead pics in the LG were very bad, I could see them a mile away it seemed, Unlike the Hanns-G I really can not notice them at all unless the screen has a black back ground.
Only reason i went a little smaller was because i got a 61" DLP 1080p and a 40" 1080p LCD and as much as i loooove big, i just thought id maybe hit quality over size in this case...and im on a 22" now so the 2"s should be a nice jump, but overall it seemed the T240 was really quite the set from alot of the stuff i read, so as long as it looks good at 24" ill be happy if i watched movies from my PC id of probably went bigger but i got some other gear for my blu ray and all that.
