Not sure what exactly ghosting is, but I've played a lot of Dragon Age: Origins, some Burnout Paradise, NFS: Shift, and about 30min of Crysis Warhead just to test fps. I'm no hardcore gamer or anything, but I LOVE this monitor. Very bright and colourful, and the high resolution is very nice. I haven't watched any HD movies or videos yet though.
In dragon age I went from having 60fps constant (Vsync enabled) to about 55-60, just drops a bit more then before. Crysis is slower, can't run it over ~25fps on enthusiast, though gamer works great still with ~30+ usually.
But what I really like is how it displays images and pictures. My dad has a Nikon D90 and I edit/touch up photos for him. With the RAW files being 4288x2848 they're a little over double the resolution. Which is great compared to the 1280x1024 which is almost 4 times smaller.
I also love the switching inputs with the tap of a finger, use it with my 360 as well. Though the 360 doesn't look any better, doesn't support anything above 1900x1080. And the 360 doesn't exactly produce pretty pictures compared to my pc.
I'd buy it for again, have no regrets at all. Especially at the price I got it for. $189.99 CAD with free shipping, so it was about $215 shipped! Which is amazing considering the usual prices here. I'll load up crysis again tomorrow to check for ghosting, once I find out what it is
Though I don't really have many fps as I suck at them on pc. But mw2 on the 360, I rip at that.
