think of it this way. is $30 really worth the drop in response time?
if yes, then its a good deal.
if no, then it is not so much of a good deal, because nice LED 23" monitors with 5ms response time are easily found at $120

if you shop hard and use NCIX US or tigerdirect, you can get much cheaper. my buddy's 23" LED 2ms monitor cost him $118 shipped from tiger direct, new

Oh newegg, causing all these shenanigans.
But yea, not a killer deal but defiantly worth the price if in the market for a new monitor.

You'll barely be able to notice any difference in response times. From Newegg that 23' is probably the best for the pricing.

2ms is better than 5ms, but that's only a 3ms difference, about 20x as fast as you blink. You will barely notice it.

1080p is 1920x1080 deinterlaced
1080i is 1920x1080 interlaced
1600x900 is in between (in computer scenarios, it usually means deinterlaced)
720p is 1280x720 deinterlaced
720i s 1280x720 interlaced

interlaced means frames are combined, which gives you a blurry image. this is usually referring to TV signals and is not something that you need to consider with PC monitors.

You can pick up 23" ASUS LED monitors from the open box section for $80 if you play your cards rights.
