Default Monitor speed differences?

Looking to add an external monitor instead of using the screen on a laptop. What I would like to know now is this, is there really much of a real world difference between monitors listed as 2ms, 5ms, 6ms, or 8ms?

Also, what effect does contrast ratio have? Higher is better?

Not really, although some will sit there and tell you they can absolutely see the difference and I would put money down saying they are lying.

Some companies lie about their brightness levels or dynamic contrast levels so I personally ignore that crap and try to look at the monitor I want to buy in person to make sure the colors are satisfactory to me.
