Help a gamer select the best 1600x1200 TFT! Please!

Now i used google but it was completely useless this time!

I want a 4:3 TFT with 1600x1200 resolution.
No problem with size, from what i've seen it'll be around 20", but i want it for gaming so i need contrast and low ms.

Don't try to convince me use the crappy 16:10 ratio! :?

I have made a list with the best available 4:3 TFTs from Newegg.

Use it as an indicator but if you want recommend me something beside the list.
I'm willing to empty my pocket and give around 700$ if i need to! 8O

Please help me or i'll just return back to my beloved CRT world! 8)

The list:

Thanks in advance! :)

More about help gamer select 1600x1200 please
  1. The only 1600x1200 that even attempts to be for gamers is the Samsung 204B. All others have higher quality, slower, more expensive panels.
  2. Here's the info I have based on xbitlabs.com's tests on the real response time:

    First of all, let's note the VX922, which supposedly has one of the lowest response times on the market right now:

    VX922 - real response time of 5-10ms...

    so, how about in the 20.1" 1600x1200?
    S-IPS.BenQ FP2091 20-30ms or more simply: 30ms
    S-IPS.BenQ FP2092 30-18ms or more simply: 30ms
    S-IPS. LCD2190UXi 10-28ms or more simply: 16/ 28ms
    TN.Samsung 203B 4-36ms or more simply: 22ms
    TN.Samsung 204B 10-30ms or more simply: 20ms
    PVA.Samsung 214T 15-25ms or more simply: 20+-ms
    S-IPS.Sony S205K 20-35ms or more simply: 30ms
    Considering price, the 204B looks like the best choice in that resolution. However, if you might consider widescreen, there is an even better choice:
    AS-IPS.NEC 20WGX2 5-10ms 7-9
    Notice that is has a response time closer to the VX922 and it has perhaps the best panel type on the market (S-IPS with glossy finish) for image editing.
  3. Well the 204B looks good. All others are crap for gaming! :(

    I don't know... If i can i'll find a brand new LG 19" CRT and be the happiest man on earth.
    If not then 204B looks the best for my needs.
    Also found this which convinced me somewhat:
    http://20-1-lcd-flat-panel-game-monitor-review.toptenreviews.com/samsung-204b-review.html

    Still if i can't find something better i'll go CRT.

    Thanks for your help so far! :)
  4. Not sure I would go for an LG CRT. I'd personally want either a Trinitron tube or NEC Diamondtron, as those appear to be the best. You can get a used one really cheap on places like craigslist.com.
