Default What do you think of this monitor?

Finally found a monitor that i think will be perfect:
It will be used for a bit of everything, including gaming.
At first i thought the price was a bit high, but as im spending almost £2000 on my PC i dont think an extra £50 will make much difference!

looks good, and it has a 4ms response time. you'll want that for gaming.
lower resonse time = faster changing of the screen, so you don't get blur

Yeah, the 4ms is the scond best response time I've seen on an LCD to date. The Viewsonic VX724 and VX924 models are the only ones that I have found with 3ms response time. Go with that Samsung. They make excellent monitors and that 4ms is awesome.

Great monitor and one of the fastest response times I've seen for. I hear they are pretty reliable to boot.

The Samsung would be a great choice to go with, I don't personally have one, but I've seen one in action and it looked great.

I have a 16ms Samsung and it does fine, no ghosting however i get a little motion blur. Its not too noticable though. I would like to see a 4ms one in action one of these days.
