Not all VA panels are bad for gaming. It all has to do with the extra processing and electronics they put into monitors in general. My old S-PVA was great for gaming. It was 6ms response time with minimal input lag, mostly because it was sRGB and 8 bit with no extended LUT, but it was a nice looking display. Its downside was aggressive overdrive causing some overshoot and minimal black streaking. What happened with the WFP2408 monitor was Samsung finally perfected their overdrive to have no overshoot in VA panels, but it came with a extreme side effect. Massive input lag. It seems after that hey kinda gave up, though ive seen Eizo do VA panels correctly....
When my S-PVA died, I tried the ZR24W first. The uniformity wasnt great and despite people saying wide angels were better than S-PVA, I disagree completely. Id rather it go slightly brighter then glow purple when you turn your head a bit. That and 2 dead sub pixels caused me to return it.
I have the PA246Q now. Generally its a all round better version of the U2410. Yes the TVs will look better because usually they are VA panels, but TVs have massive input lag and while dot pitch allows better response time, its kinda hard to game close to it.
IPS black glow took a bit for me to get used to, but I was able to help it by inching up the contrast and massively lowering brightness. BTW H-IPS panels do NOT have purple glow at angles.
