5ms is more than adequate for any gaming scenario.

1ms or less or you can't even see the game except when nothings moving.

If it costs that much more, definitely go for the 5ms.

The blur doesn't really matter. For it to be noticeable at 5ms you'd be moving faster than you could aim.
The only time you'll notice a difference between a 2ms and 5ms display is with the mouse cursor.

"Dynamic contrast ratio" is a sham, you can't see the difference between 2ms and 32ms...
It's like buying Fatal1ty gear when you can get normal gear for the same price.

That's why they ask the question...
Better to realize that you don't know something and ask about it than be too proud to admit your lack of knowledge.

Thanks all for busting the myth.
My friends always asked me to get 2ms instead of 5ms
They were like: "OMG get the 2ms version!! 5ms is crap!"
I tried to google about this but there are hardly any topics that really shows the difference between them. So I guess, it make no difference to our naked eyes.
