Response time is where the real spec wars are happening today. Response time is a measure of the time a given pixel takes to go from on (white) to off (black), or vice versa. A monitors response time determines how quickly and crisply it updates. A year or so ago, a response time of 20-25 ms was about the best you could do, and there are still a lot of 25 ms monitors on the market. Twenty-five ms is slow enough to give you visible smearing and ghosting, leaving rapidly moving images (e.g., rotating 3D objects) looking a bit blurry.
But somewhere around 12-16 ms, response times become fast enough for most people and applications. And response times have fallen dramatically in the last year, to as little as 8 ms. Generally, larger LCD monitors have worse response times than smaller models, 12 to 16 ms instead of 8 to 10 ms, but thats changing weekly. Samsungs new SyncMaster 915N 19-inch LCD sports an 8 ms response timethe fastest in the industry today
The full article can be found here Also the fastest ms response time on the market right now is the viewsonic at 3ms as noted by VT360. I do like that 30" dell though
