Help deciding 19inch LCD

Was hoping I could get some advice on the following 19inch LCDs (ignoring the price, since they are about the same). I have listed them in order of preference from what I've read and gathered from the specs and some online reviews.

Good quality gaming (e.g. CS:S) and vids with them would be preferable - for home use. These are shopbot links (from Australia) so that you can see the specs and prices at a glance. Any thoughts on my choices would be great.

  1. VX922 unless you do image editing on your monitor.
  2. Thanks for reply.

    The Viewsonic VX922 is around $150 more than the others I've selected, and spec-wise the Chimei CMV 946D seems to be similar or better (e.g. viewing angles) - but I can't seem to find data sheets to confirm if the 2ms RT is grey-grey for the CMV 946D.

    Or is comparing widescreen LCDs to non-widescreen unfair and/or pointless?

    I'll be doing a lot of uni work and some gaming + movies, thought widescreen would be better?
  3. How about the VP191b then?

    That's even more expensive and only 8ms.

    The VP191b is around $300 http://www.shopbot.com.au/default.asp?kw=VP191b&position=search

    The response time on the VP191b is actually not too bad. It's real response time is supposedly 12-15ms. Compare that to the VX922, which has a real response time of 5-10ms. Many monitors go higher than that.

    Note: the VX922 is listed as 2m and the VP191b (according to what you told me) is listed as 8m, but as you can see the specs on the box are all wrong. You can't trust the specs on the box to be accurate.

    Shopbot cannot find that model (look carefully at the search results).

    There's only one vendor that I can find matching that model:
    http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=VP191b
    and it's listed as $993.72

    I'm more interested in comparisons between the models I've selected in the original post; particularily the CMV 946D.

    And where possible, I try to get manufacturer data sheets, which I can't find for the CMV 946D :(

    Thanks.
