Tn is good for gaming, but not as rich in colors.

Why is that particular model not good for anything else? Just curious.

Sounds like U got Dellowned. My monitor kicks *** for games and has great colors. The Hyundai l72s monitor:

700:1 contrast ratio
8 ms response time

Its incredible, Ive got no regrets. Not even a single dead pixel on mine.

Yes, their VX series has 3ms response time. I couldn't believe the first time I read it but Viewsonic's website shows it to be true.

Yeah, guys... he asked between the two monitors because he's replacing a broken one.

I've never seen a 3ms monitor, mine is 8ms (which does pretty good for games). How comparable is it to the response time of a CRT?

well the response time of a crt is the speed of light... so um 3 ms is very very long compared to it. To the human eye though I think it would look almost instantaneous, heck I cant notice any blurring on my 8 ms one at all.

my girlfriend has a 16ms monitor. She plays Doom 3 on it and I notice no ghosting. 8ms has to be awesome. And 3ms... geez, my eye can't tell the difference.

yea, but its a matter of seeing it in person

I think i'm safe to stay with my CRT for games, it dosen't really matter


if I get the 1905, it will be fine for internet and such

I don't trust their 8ms claim


this is coming for a company that said their 20ms is the best they have for games, wtf?

It's only $350 and it's much better then both of those monitors.
I'm sure thats grey to grey response time, not actual white-black-white...

I don't like the viewsonics that much, if you go 19", theres no reason not to get a Samsung 940b.
