Did you try it? That post is from after the 1.34 firmware. I had the red screen issue. Those settings fixed it. It isn't a broken component or board or panel. It is a bug in the firmware that causes the screen to show red, green, or blue if the color settings are out of whack. If you see red, your red settings are too low. Green means your green settings are too low. If you don't like the red "tint" to white screens, try adjusting the 80%, 90%, and 100% setting in the white balance menu. Add 1-6 points of blue and/or green, don't just decrease red.

Edit: Strange, now I can change the picture mode back to game and it still works. I'm glad either way. And now I can go up to 120 (I'm not going higher) when before the firmware update I could only get it to 100Hz.
Playing with the frame rate at 120 is so sweet. It also helps some games to run better. I get better FPS in games like AC Black Flag. You don't need to use Vsync if your FPS is high. There's no screen tearing. Even with Vsync on, I still get more FPS. It's great.
Weird, I too got some wonky results on Game setting before, so I test resolutions on a custom edited Calibrated setting. Glad you got 120hz working. Pretty awesome to have decent quality 120hz computer monitor features on a big screen TV in the living room.
Also about VSync, have you ever tried Frame Rate Target in Precision X or a similar utility like Afterburner? You can set a cap at like 119hz and the GPU limits the amount of frames it attempts to render, which actually allows it to slow down in scenes where it was trying to render 200fps, which keeps it slightly cooler and more efficient when it is having a harder time rendering the full 119 fps in other scenes. You can also use it with VSync on as well, which still limits it to 120hz during areas where the fps jumps to 121+ for fractions of a second. I still see tearing with both of them off in FPS games when quickly changing direction with the mouse, but that may be because some games run over 300+ fps on my pc and the number of frames being dropped at that point is significant. I usually use both and turn VSync off in all game menus since I use global VSync.
Also if you like low input lag, try a custom 1440x810 resolution at 240+ Hz. Literally zero input lag is noticeable to me. Plus with VSync on there isn't really any tearing, and playing some FPS games at 240hz is really fun. 1280x720 at 300+ Hz works too, but it drops enough frames to introduce a weird twitch sometimes.
