Response time is not the same as input lag.
Response time is a marketing term that marketing people use to lure in users who don't know everything about monitors. You're better off ignoring it, it doesn't tell you absolutely anything.
The average TN has roughly 15ms of input lag, some have more, some less.
Response time is supposed to give a description of ghosting on a monitor, but it is GTG, as if it was even measured most of the time. Therefore, one can just ignore it and focus on the ghosting tests in monitor reviews, to get accurate results.
