6ms bad for gaming for this 24inch IPS? Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Gaming Monitors Starcraft 2 Peripherals Product Last response: April 20, 2012 8:54 AM in Computer Peripherals Share ibiza21 March 1, 2012 9:18:20 PM Hello, I'm shopping around for a monitor, and I've had a tough time finding a 16:9 ips monitor 24 inch monitor (most of them are 16:10, which i don't want because I'd have black bars on the top and bottom while playing Starcraft 2). I found this one: http://www.asus.com/Display/LCD_Mo [...] /#overview The only thing I'm worried about is that it's 6ms - is this a bad response time for gaming? Also open to any other 24 inch 16:9 ratio IPS monitor suggestions (good luck finding them). Thanks!

I can't think of any 24" 16:9. Almost all are 1200p, which is 16:10 aspect ratio. jaguarskx a b 4 Gaming a c 191 C Monitor March 3, 2012 7:22:11 AM Most 24" monitors are 16:9 aspect ratio or 1920x1080 resolution. It has been that way for the past 3 years. 1920x1200 resolution monitors are now rather rare. 6ms is typical for IPS monitors of any type. Some are rated at fast as 5ms, but the difference between 5ms and 6ms is not noticeable.

I liked the display on first view at the store didnt read all the specs until I got home, the price was too good to pass up - worst case down in the basement it goes. I was somewhat disappointed when I read that it features a .6ms response time. In my brain thats a dash over 1/2 a second, right? I been testing it with 1080p videos from youtube - so far I do not see any horrible ghosting.
