During my own research I haven't found anything better than the 25ms Samsung 172T. It has superb picture quality. Its ghosting issues should not really be too distracting for most purposes - in fact, for most purposes its not a problem at all. Unfortuntely, it doesn't pivot. I think the LCD we all need still doesn't exist! Although I agree with you - 20ms is really the fastest that should be looked for currently if picture quality is required. I haven't even found that. My recommendation is the Samsung 172T.
Don't get the Viewsonic, really stay away from it, it's simply a big piece of crap. Screen sucks in gaming and certain colors in Windows are also messed up, the OSD is pretty poor and color management is a pain. I'd say get a Hercules but those don't have a pivot option...
Is it a bad thing if there is smoke coming out of my case?
so far, I can't find what I want, so I am left with two options:
- Hercules 920Pro DVI (that is not out yet and does not have pivot)
- Samsung's new 16ms... when it is out and I work out which model will be sold where...
So not so lucky!
Someone can tell me what Samsung is doing with their monitors. I have heard about 172x and 173p.
Both supposed to be 16ms but that's about all I know for sure. If the 173 is what I read somewhere, then it is exactly what I want... feel free to help 8(
