Hi everybody,
I am thinking of upgrading my screen with a Samsung SyncMaster 2243SN 22".

Response time is 5 ms.
Is this response time still OK in order to play IL2 smoothly ?

Thanks in advance

A second is 1000ms.

My 25.5 " Samsung260 has a 5ms response time and its OK.

I often wondered why Plasma tv's wouldn't be more suitable because they have something like a .5 or .05 response time. I know there can be a problem with "burn in" with a plazma but what other problems are there?

Just bought this LG last week FWIW, and it is just excellent with a capital E so far.

They tend to suffer from reduced vibrancy after a few years of continuous activity.

A 5ms response time is pretty darn good for LCDs. Assuming you mean a true white-to-black and not grey-to-black time, that is. Most LCD monitors aren't in the single digit range for true white-to-black, but the ones that are, are PLENTY good for gaming. At least this was true a few years ago (I haven't bought a new monitor since 2007ish).

I've seen gaming LCD's down to 3ms advertised. 60FPS would require 16.666...ms change time.

Id be looking more at contrast ratio than the response time. There isn't anything remotely sensitive that you are doing with your computer that 5 ms is going to make a difference. Most likely, you wouldn't even be able to discern it from 3ms or 8ms.

Its also has nothing to do with refresh rate.

Contrast ratio, on the other hand, is important because it tells how well the screen can adjust to changes in lighting/color.
In short, you can look at an image with dark parts, and bright parts, and it will display more evenly with out over/under exposing a part of the scene.

With Il2, i turn my contrast up so i can see inside the pit better, but then i can't make out the detail on snow covered maps. This is because my contrast ratio is 700:1.


Im not sure of this, but i think run of the mill computer screens at 22" are 3000:1 - 5000:1, and the best out there (really expensive) are up to 50,000:1.

real vs dynamic contrast ratio's, the dynamic ones are basicaly forgettable and not really that important...

i think its SN monitors have pretty bad viewing angles, much better to go with IPS or they other type of lcd...

monitors can have input lag aswell, specialy some dell's

and modern plasma's you really haveto leave something on for a week or two to burn it in
