12 ms response time good enough for games?

Postby Thoraudio » Tue Mar 28, 2006 10:56 am

Looking at a new monitor to replace my 9 year old 15" Sony.

12 MS good enough for games on an LCD?

N/M... found a nice deal on an 8ms one.

19" for $249, not counting $60 rebate

200 reviews, and it still averages a 5.... looks like a killer deal.

Sounds like it. I still game on my 25ms (15up/10down) Samsung 191T that i picked up 3-4 years ago. Assuming that 8ms ins't a fake score (different companies rate their LCD's differently) that should be killer.

The only problem I'm aware of with the really low ms LCD's is that the color quality seriously suffers.

12 ms should be really good still...and should give better color for less money.

anything over 16 ms you will start to experince ghosting depending on the game that your playing and the frames per second ratio..
