You can't trust a response time to describe the amount of pixel responsiveness to you, or somehow think it's input lag, which plenty of people seem to think.
My "2ms" LG W2442PA-BF TN panel has more ghosting and more input lag than my LP3065, an old S-IPS panel rated at "8ms" by a long shot. It doesn't even come close to the LP3065, it's that bad.
^^^^ Just an example for why they aren't reliable. Both are supposed to be gray to gray numbers.

Incorrect. Response time is not input lag, it's meant to describe pixel responsiveness, not the time it takes for the image to display. Plenty of 2ms and 5ms TN panels have high input lag. Most probably don't, but there's been an awful lot of cases on OCN where someone buys a panel and thinks the response time will quarantee a lagless display, and receives a panel with 20ms of input lag, just because they were uninformed and didn't do their research on the input lag of the panel.
And you can't exactly describe ghosting as lag, not to mention that it's not accurate.Edited by De-Zant - 12/3/11 at 6:12am
