Also, the 2209WA you claim to have gamed on has between 20 and 30 ms of input lag on average according to PRAD, which is the exact same amount that the U2713HM has...
I have played counterstrike, but I find the gameplay boring and repetitive, so I don't actually play it.
I also do not believe that there is no overdrive ghosting on your panel; I don't see how different panels of the same type could have different amounts of overdrive. It is similar to the ghosting on the U2713H, but only seems to be noticeable in certain situations for me (like in certain games, but not on the desktop). However, it is still very distracting.
One of those ? Well.. thank you I guess.
I did not get this monitor for games. I am a graphic and web designer, that's why I got this monitor, and it is great for that by the way. Coding and 'designing' is just pure pleasure on this monitor. Being able to have two full website side by side on the monitor is just great.
I had planned to get a VG248QE (144hz panel) all along, I just tested the game on this monitor to see how it would perform. The input lag on the 2209WA is less intense, way less, believe me. The resolution being at 1680 by 1050 it also helps, compared to 2560 by 1440.
Once you play counter strike competitively you actually enjoy it, at least that's my case
Well in this case I have not yet seen any amount of ghosting on my panel, maybe I will notice it in a particular scene or game later on, who knows.

If I lean to the right, then the strip on the right looks normal, while the left turns a bit cool.
Maybe my eyes are wonky, so rather than getting them checked I thought it easiest to ask about the monitor first.
Edit: Could also be that the right side is a bit darker rather than bluish, hard to say.
I am not seeing it, my white is uniform from left to right except when I lean very far to the right or left of course.
