30 inch 2560x1600 IPS monitors are really nice. For viewing photography on, watching movies, doing PhotoShop, and using Visual Studio on.

But dog slooooow pixel response at 8ms, only 60Hz, so motion blurry, plus some known input lag. Those pixels are almost turtles compared to your Predator.

If you own them now, these monitors resell for about $500 used each, being highly favoured by software developers.

Why not sell them and get two more 165Hz IPS screens? :D :D :D
