hi, i want to get a 19" LCD
im looking at 2 different 19" LCD, the difference between them are...

contrast 700:1, brightness 300 cd/m2, 16ms response time
contrast 500:1, brightness 250 cd/m2, 12ms response time

does anyone know the "real" response time for Philips 190P5EB?
because offical Philips site says 16ms, but i searched in google and most of the online store says 25ms.

anyway, if the real response time is 16ms, is 4ms a big difference?

thanks

All retailer information that I found said 25ms for that monitor, 4ms is not a big difference, but if you are playing a high paced game that 4ms delay could eventually lead to you failure.

I recommend getting the monitor with these specs
contrast 500:1, brightness 250 cd/m2, 12ms response time
The contrast is managable and I never want my monitor too bright so the brightness level is perfect.

a 500:1 contrast is plenty, a brightness of 250 is also sufficient. You want a response time of at least 16ms or faster (meaning lower)

I'll research the monitor with reported 25ms response...to see if that is accurate.

If you dont game much, you may as well go for the 19inch "16ms" model.

If you game often, you'll want the 12ms model.


***EDIT

I found philips official take on this, and 16ms is the response philips reports...The retailer info I saw all said something to the effect of:
"Response time: 25ms (typ)"

I dont like that they do that, but I have a strong feeling you can trust philips.com with their reported 16ms.

Well stated Xavier,
for an example of quality, this is my monitor, it is capable of almost HD resolution and quality, but is quite slow in response time, for what I have I think the only things that I would want improved is the response time of 20ms and the max resolution of 768x1024. Just don't go overboard in features, look for what is necessary for your uses.
