Yea it is but..... I would suggest getting a lcd that doesnt have speakers and buying the speakers seperatly. That will really save you a lot of money and it would sound a lot better. TRUE FACT-- The only difference between different LCD screens is the resolution and size. Just get the cheaper one.

So for instance the fact that it has a 16ms response time doesn't matter??? TRUE FACT-- high response times can cause ghosting in game play.

If you want to play computer games on it get at MOST a 12ms would recommend about an 8 ms response time

response time? gaming? isnt that a TV? but than again you can just get a DVI cable, nvm. And it looks very nice, but i would go with wat alex said, it would save you a good amount of money.

actuually i'd go with what bonkers said...that thing has a 16ms response time...there will DEFINITELY be ghosting in your games....if you are however, not going to be gaming on it, by all means, buy it.....but if you are gaming, i'd say you will be sorely disappointed.

16ms is really a minimum in my eyes. I would however recommend going for at least a 12ms response time
