I know this is 12 years old but this is one of the greatest things I have ever read.
You’re right, it looks like 120Hz has become the new standard.
Are you a gamer? If not, why on earth do you pay such a premium for a 120Hz ultrawide?
Also, in case you haven’t make sure you do the following:
Click on System.
Click on Display.
Click the Advanced display settings link.
Click the Display adapter properties for Display 1 link. …
Click the Monitor tab.
Under “Monitor Settings,” use the drop-down menu to select the refresh rate you wish.
SO many people buy high Hz monitors and never update their settings in Windows.
