    I doubt most consumers would be unable to differentiate between a 2 and 1ms monitor in a double blind test.

    Of course they wouldn't. IIRC, tests demonstrate unless you're looking at two images that really contrast (like a full black and full white screen), no body can notice something that quick.

    Think about it - a response time of 0.001 seconds versus 0.002 seconds. It's pointless.

    Sounds like old news, I live in China and bought one of these from www.newegg.com.cn back in May. Cost worked out to around 250 quid and it is a great monitor.

    I assume this is still a grey to grey transition. If not it's impressive I've never seen a black white black transition go anywhere below 5ms

    Also Viewsonic beat them to it

    Nobody will notice the benefit of 1ms responce time over 2ms in real life. I'd prefer manufacturers get back to making reasonably priced 24" monitors with 1920x1200 resolution instead of slicing an inch of screen off with 1080 res.

    As long as it's still a 60Hz TN panel this isn't really interesting. Give me a 120Hz xVA or IPS panel with LED backlighting and I'll get excited. :)

    What's the refresh rate?
    Will it shatter the image ghosting barrier in 3d?

    Why is it that even a 1ms response time seems way worse than a 0ms response of a crt?

    Im assuming its because a crt is a raster scanning device ?

    Still waiting for the day when we have a thin tft screen with the spec of a crt, i know its getting close, but were deffo not there yet.

    I assume theres many gamers on here that still swear by a crt?

    ah, my eyes! it's TN!

    i'll take IPS over TN any day, even if it's 1ms vs 10ms advertised speed.

    Wake me up when they can offer a decent resolution, a 27" panel should be 2560 x 1440.

    you don't get it.. crt not only lag free it can display 120fps while it's at it- the new generation have no clue and they get tossed like a salad against a good player on a crt

    I miss having a crt... such quality images. Too bad the "good" monitors we have these days just can't compare.

    Well I do, just because I've concentrated on the internal upgrades and the budget meant I wasn't gaming over 12 x 10 for a long time. So my first flatscreen wouldn't be for gaming, more just the web and general windows if I could get a good deal.

    1ms or not, at 60hz it will still be full of tearing

    LCD will always have that "laggy" problem, even if is 0ms !

    You read me right, ZERO ms!

    I highly doubt it. It likely also uses a TN panel with overdrive to achieve the 1ms response time, so it'll have artifacting instead of the "ghosting" which I even find to be worse...

    Marketing win = consumer loss all around.
