Ghosting isn't bad at all, unless you sit too close which makes it difficult to use anyway, you want to put at least a meter between the keyboard and screen.

Hopefully later models will improve response times anyway, at <5ms it's not noticeable at all.

I am a patient man(being poor helps). Figure in about year or so response times should be low enough on all of the big LCDS to truly replace a CRT for gaming. It threads like this one that finally pried me away from blind loyalty to CRTs, and I can't wait until I can upgrade my current 19in. widescreen to something in the mid 30s.

the reason why the Westinhouse monitor is cheaper is because of it's inhability to display true 1080. Yes, it has 1080 horizontal lines so it is "1080" but broadcast of "1080" is 1920 x 1080 so it is 20 vertical lines short of true 1080 which means you don't see the real picture. If it cut off ten lines on each side you'd be ok, but it most likely fudges the picture to show the full frame... (I didn't look into it but I'll bet on it)

I'd love to be able to get one of those though, any of the two! And the Westinhouse has an HDMI imput! sweeeet

I have heavily considered buying this and have spent about 3 weeks reading about the Westy. I haven't heard if this is true. Please point me to where you heard this, as I want as much info as possible before throwing a thousand on it.

ive never heard abou this monitor not being true 1080p. all i know is that i get all the info on my screen on my desktop, nothing is cut off or chopped. and gameplay at 1920x1080 looks amazing.
lets say you ae right and its not true 1080p. i dont notice a differance nor would it skew my decision.
ive had this thing for a few months now and i love it. best monitor ive used to date.

That is quite comforting to hear. Thanks for your review & input, BTW. I am so excited about this monitor, it is just so hard for me to press the "buy it" button. I think I will, just need a little more time to decide.

Where do you get your info from?

Figured I'd throw in one last update as I have used this as a TV for a while now.

I reverted my computer back to my Viewsonic G220fb 21" CRT monitor. While I will sincerely miss the massive size and emersivness it gives you, the great contrast and bright whites, and the desktop space I had for toolbar heavy apps like photo raw converters etc. I'm happier with the CRT for gaming, the near instant response time or what feels to be instant on a CRT was more important to me than the disadvantages in smaller size and contrast.

I play alot of BF2142 and FEAR and other faster paced FPS type games, and the very slight ghosting was enough to make it just slightly harder to see and react very quickly when it was important. Especially for close combat games like FEAR where you meet up with an opponent, and you have all of a split second to spin around while shooting to get the kill. FEAR in particular and Battlefield if I'm in heavy action. Not an issue at all for something like C&C3 or an RTS type games and desktop apps/productivity type tools were superb. I just wanted more and didn't like knowing the 8800 GTX was doing all that work to produce high resolution AA frame rates that were getting blurred and lost in motion. I suppose as suggested this is just the 8ms response time, and perhaps is just personal preference jor what you're used to.

The Westy is however serving extremely well as it replaced a 42" projection Phillips HD TV. I've watched several movies on it and it only begs for a better signal. The super wide viewing angle is a much welcomed improvement over the old projection TV. The speakers are actually better than I would have thought. My only complaint as a TV is the limited "Stretch" options. You have normal with leaves large black sides for a letterbox signal, and stretched which is somewhere in between (cutting a little off the top/bottom, but still leaving some black on the sides.

In the end, I feel this is a high quality product. Serves extremely well as a computer monitor for all but the very fast motion type FPS games, and it's also an excellent TV monitor that's relatively future proof(perhaps slightly ahead of the availability of HD content).

I'll buy another one when/if they come out with one that gets slightly better response time.

Actually because of the way your eye retains images after you see them you cannot tell the difference between a 10ms response time and a 1ms response time if they actually respond in the times listed. Did you turn on vertical sync when you were playing on the Westinghouse? The ghosting may just have been tearing which is caused by the monitor being sent more frames than it can display per second so you get some mashing of two image occasionally.
