The L2000? The reviews don't matter. Most people are not educated in the department of LCD's, and don't know what they are talking about. That's why the VX922 is recommended so much. The black to white response isn't very important, it's the gray to gray that matters.

$600? WTF, it costs under $350 here. Think, how many times do the colors go directly from black to white in games, or vice versa? Gray to gray means anything inbetween, not just gray. Like going from one shade of blue to another shade of blue, or another color.

Yeah I know, I spent forever researching for mine. There are not any good specs to go by. All the specs seem to be made up, there are too many ways to list the same spec to make it look good. Best example is the 8ms gray-gray vs black-white vs black-white-black. I couldnt find any good research on LCDs in your price range.
