I have the lg and this oversharpening of text is well overrated, there is a sharpness setting from 0-10 I believe, default is 5, I've dropped it back to 3.
I find it totally fine so it obviously isn't something that bothers me.

What really annoys me is that CRT's still run FPS games better than of these 'gaming monitors' can (used to be a pro CS player). Anyone who says you cant tell the difference between 75hz and 120hz needs their eyes/brain tested as its the world of difference!
My question to Ickz is, as you seem to be the most informed, when is a monitor coming out that will truly rival CRT 120hz performance?
I'm seriously considering getting a CRT back on my desk.
No there is certainly no truly flawless flat screen monitor, I was going to get the samsung s27a950d mainly because I prefer 1920x1080 on a 27", it's pretty close to flawless from what I've researched, it's only real flaw is input lag, it's like 12-16ms, which is totally acceptable really but I wasn't going to spend so much money and not get a monitor without any input lag, also the glossy screen isn't ideal but they do produce the best pictures, but sun light shining into the room in the daytime would make that quite unbearable for me.
It has like no ghosting in 120hz mode too, and the colour/picture is said to be very good.
I decided to go with the lg simply because it has been tested to have no input lag, picture is terrible out of the box but some guy calibrated it in a review and gave his settings so I just used them and I'm very happy with them. The trailing on the lg isn't as good as the sammy but is better than the BenQ which is pretty much the only other monitor with no input lag or very little input lag, the benq has worse backlight bleeding too but has much better resolution and aspect ratio customization amongst other things.
Then there are other 120hz panels like the asus, acer, alienware and planar that perform better in other aspects but have some input lag, again very little like 12ms range.
Oh and just to add, don't go by digital versus input lag results, it's a joke and they don't do their measurements properly.
Edit: Meant to add, I tested the lg for input lag myself against my old monitor and found the LG to have between 20-25ms less input lag, prad.de which I trust measured my old monitor to have 23ms of input lag so the lg really is fast.Edited by R35ervoirFox - 9/16/11 at 12:24pm
