We use a 19" Benq FP937s. There aren't any latency problems.

I'm using a Sony (shut up, L_P) SDM-HS94P that I've found absolutely beautiful for the last year. I had a 19" CRT previously but I like this much better. I've never seen any sort of ghosting or latency.

Mostly in the brightness and size of the monitor. I could see things more clearly that I couldn't see with the smaller monitor. I could best relate it to having blinders on with the old monitor, and with this one, the blinders came off.

My mom has a samsung 913T, with 8ms response time. I find it has moderate blurrying problems. I'd rather use my 17" CRT.

Well, now we have both sides of the argument. I wonder if it matters what video card is used ? DVI vs. VGA ?

LCD's should be fine for gaming as long as they have a low response time. My mom isn't a gamer ::): so we didn't get her a great monitor.

As for DVI vs. VGA, this article says its hard to tell the difference, though DVI is technically better for LCD displays.

But you'd think an 8ms time on the LCD would be fast enough.

I checked out the specs on Ultimo_Posto's Benq FP937 and F1 Addicts's Sony SDM-HS94P. They both have 12ms response, and they seem to be happy. Shrug.
