Hello, I am interested in purchasing a new LCD display (used primarily for gaming). I looked up "The Beast" in the pc powerplay magazine, and found they recommended the monitor: Samsung 930BF 19" 4ms LCD. http://www.samsung.com/Products/Monitor/LCD_Digital/LS19BIDKBVXAA.asp I went to the store asking for the monitor, and the sale attendant said it was good, but also suggested this monitor: Sony SDMHS95PS 19" 12ms LCD. http://www.pcshopper.com.au/product.php?productid=45273&cat=429&page=1 I was wondering, since I am using the monitor primarily for gaming, which monitor would be better? The Sony monitor has a glossy finish, meaning the image it produces is sharper than the Samsung. However, the Sony has a lower response time of 12ms when compared to Samsung’s 4ms. Would you notice much ghosting with the Sony’s 12ms response time? Is it justifiable to have a slower response time, but a crisper image? Any advice would be most appreciated. Cheers, Maqqie EDIT: I actually heard that Sony's response time is 8ms rather than 12ms. This is because Sony time their response time in REAL TIME, where'as Samsung do it internally in the pc itself. (In otherwords, if Sony were to time their monitors in the pc itself, their response time would be 8ms not 12ms).
