Default Response Time and Refresh Rate

what is considered a "good" response time and refresh rate for LCDs?

My display has:

• Vertical Refresh (Hz)
48-75Hz
• Response Time
12ms

Would that be good, okay, or crap?

Dont be so worried about refresh rates, just worry about response times with LCD's. You want a LCD with 8ms or lower response time.
