    So, This monitor is not flicker free? like some BenQ monitors?
    this is my one and only thing from holding me from buying this…

    they use PWM to get that response time…its not even Gt2 its different,close but still 4,8ms on Gray to gray scale,which is more important.

    ill wait till some one does a video reviews on them.
