In Q4 of this year, ViewSonic plans to introduce two or three models with an 8ms response time, and BenQ will also release two or three 8ms models and increase its sales proportion of 16- and 12ms-response-time. Does this mean that 8ms response time will become the mainstream in 2005? Both of these companies think so. Other companies are also following suit, with Chi Mei Group (with its CMV brand) and Royal Philips Electronics also joining the party in Q4 this year or in 2005. Initially aimed at high-end users such as graphics designers, 3D gamers and DVD viewers, such LCD monitors will now hopefully become a PC VDU standard in the not too distant future.
