looking to see if i can get a quick response here : ) I am currently in hong kong and my choices of monitors at my local shops are these none of which comes with much information about them ... I could special order a gaming monitor yet it would add much to the price and would not be here quick enough ... I play primarily fps such as counter strike, crossfire, bf3 and will be getting into the two new mech warrior style games coming out this year ... my three biggest areas of concern are response time, lag, and frames per second .. i do have a top teir video card and rig with an amazing internet connection .. my current choices are ... asus ve228t,samsung s22b300h, samsung 23b350h,benq gw2250 benq gw2260, benq gl955a, benq gl2250, benq gl2250h, benq gl2250hh, clearview g920wl, viewsonic vx2370s, viewsonic va2033, viewsonic va2212m, viewsonic 2253mh, hp LL574aa, hp LL649aa, hp xn376aa ..... do any of these monitors jump out to the frontor maybe the top three in your estimation or are they all crap haha ... your help would be greatly appreciated : )

THe whole eyes only have a 6ms response isn't true. It varies from person to person as it is a biological thing. From personal experience. My and brother and I see very differently. Both of us are young, have 20/20 vision, yet when he looks at a game being played on a monitor with an 8ms response, he doesn't see the ghosting or blurring. Nor does he see a major smoothing increase when moving to a 2ms monitor. I, on the other hand, see ghosting and blurring on 5+ms monitors and am the only person in my family that can see and feel the difference between a 2ms monitor with a high refresh rate and a 6ms with say a 60htz refresh rate. .

very good info right here.

A while back right here on 3dgameman forums everyone said the best gaming monitor was the HP w2207h. I went ahead and bought it and was blown away of how much different my games looked. Then when I built my girlfriends PC i got her an ASUS one and was like even more blown away. THEN when i built my brother a PC he chose a Hanns.G and i was even more impressed. It made my HP look like garbage.

You make a good point mate (sorry to sound like an old pirate from films, I'm English lol)

by "impossible to answer" you mean there are pros and cons of every monitor. but I have yet to see monitors which are both LED backlit and at a resolution of 1920x1200 instead of 1920x1080. I suspect there isn't much visual quality difference between the two resolutions though so that doesn't bother me.

I've heard from one of your previous videos that TN panels are better for gaming due to better response times, but haven't IPS ones caught up in that area yet? also people need to keep in mind that not every game in existence go up to 1920x1080/1200. some older titles, like the PC version of GTA San Andreas for example only go up to 1680x1050 in the options. so they have to be upscaled. displaying non native resolution is still an issue with LCD's as far as I know.

1920x1080 is good enough for me, and yea I'll try to look for a 24+ inch screen, you can't get 120hz 2560x1600 monitors anyway so it doesn't matter, and even if it did, it would be a tad demanding for single GPU setups. I'd be less impressed with frame rates below 40 odd in certain games.

thanks for the help man.

2ms response time on a ips panel? One thing Rodney forget to mention is that are eyes only have a response time of 6ms. TN panels have LESS LAG TIME.

This is even more of a reason to have 2ms response, as it would be 2ms (for monitor) + 6ms (for eyes) = 8ms!!!

You misunderstood my comment. Our eyes can only benefit from a monitor that is 6ms (can't really explain it.
