I could care less if I have correct colors, I want the images to be displayed on the screen with as little ghosting as possible. I respectfully disagree that response times are simply an inaccurate marketing ploy, because I have seen the difference with my own eyes.
Regardless of the amount of ghosting, you still see your opponent in the same amount of time.
If you dislike ghosting THAT much, get a trinitron CRT. 0 ghosting. If you don't care about the ghosting that much, why not just go IPS? I mean, with some of these panels, there might even be less ghosting than some 2ms panels.
That brings me to my other question for you. Why do you insist on using those numbers? 2ms, 5ms, 6ms, 8ms, 16ms. It's all lies. You do NOT know the amount of ghosting before you see the display in action. I've seen plenty of 2ms panels with 2 frames of ghosting while I've seen plenty of panels advertised at 16ms that have almost 0 ghosting. Why do you refer to the numbers in this argument?
