So I'm thinking of getting the VE228H because of the deal and I know I won't experience a noticeable difference between it and say the VE247H.

Anyone disagree?

Option number 2.

You'll notice the difference between 2ms and 5ms in games. The ghosting effect is horrible.

You will not notice the difference between 2ms and 5ms. Other factors produce much, much more lag than any 3ms bump for the response time; 3ms (or 1/300 of a second) is negligible. If I were you I'd look up reviews for more accurate information. Those numbers don't tell the whole story.

Its actually the overdrive used to achieve those low response times that causes ghosting. How noticeable it is varies by panels, and it can usually be turned off.

Exactly like jryan388 said
you won't feel a difference between 5ms and 2ms but I personally prefer 23" and above in wide screens the 21.5" is kinda annoying.

So from all the above I'd go with the third monitor, it does have better viewing angel than the second one.

3ms for a pixel to drop its light is a HUGE amount of time. I'm not talking just because of the numbers the monitors report or from the theory here, I've seen the difference (I have an old 5ms LCD and 2x 2ms LCD LED) and the ghosting is noticeable when there's a big contrast and the Hz are capped (you can check it with slow motion movement and high contrast videos).

Most 2ms have a setting to use the regular clock for the pixels powering so they last longer; obviously you have to set the response time to "fastest" or in my case "ultra fast" in the monitor itself.

My monitors are 22" 1080p 2ms Viewsonics: VX2253MH.

Cheers!

I'm using Samsung 23" LCD LED with 5 ms, and I don't actually see any ghosting or delays.

If you don't notice ghosting, then it's a perception issue on my part, cause comparing them side by side, it is noticeable for me.

He'd have to see both monitors, side by side, and decide looking at them; which, it's not a bad idea for any monitor buyer, actually.

I can't provide more info than this :p 

Cheers!
