Just got me an Acer V243H monitor from Novatech, billed as one of their own branded monitors, with the description: Novatech 24" Widescreen LCD Gaming Grade Monitor. Note the word 'gaming' in there. Anyway, the bloody thing smears and blurs all over the place with even moderate motion and certainly doesn't live up to its 'gaming' claim. As a desktop monitor it's pretty good though. Animation is liquid smooth on my old CRT monitor, as you'd expect and I'm looking for an LCD that has this performance. I checked out the Iiyama E2607WS-1 at work, which also has a claimed 2ms response time and it's just as bad. I'm beginning to think that it's not possible to actually buy an LCD monitor that doesn't ruin motion video, as every LCD screen I've ever seen does this to some degree or another. As I've spent a considerable amount of money on my PC hardware to ensure smooth animation, I'm not going to compromise it by having the monitor ruin it's performance. I want to return it and get something that will do my system justice - but what to get?
