I am currently looking for a monitor with low input lag and no ghosting or very little. i have been researching for the past week and can't find a true answer. first off i don't like dell or acer and currently i have a 19' samsung (not widescreen). My Price range is $200-$350. I am only a foot or 2 from the screen so viewing angle isnt a problem. I have been looking at a few.
Samsung PX2370 (good but heard from some people it can be a mess)
LG W2486L (I realy like this monitor but cant find anyone with it instock)
should i look into the 120hz monitors like the LG W2363D? i heard they are better for gaming
I am really interested in why you don't like Dell or Acer.
I have an inexpensive (less than $200) 22" Acer 5ms 1680x1050, no ghosting or dead pixels. (fallout, half-life, Quake) Before this monitor I used a Dell crt that I got for $5 at auction, but it was a good gaming monitor too.
What ever you get it doesn't matter as long as the one your getting does support or have 120Hz refresh rate on max resolution. Why? Because if your monitor can't sync to accommodate the processing of your video card your nice looking monitor will be a wasted gaming experience.
So as long as you have the 120Hz refresh rate option on the monitor your getting your all set for gaming. Now choose a good looking screen one that match the sparkle in your eyes.
