What are your experiences with them for gaming. I am trying out an Acer AL732 (16ms response time).

I just ran IL2:FB and noticed the colours look somewhat saturated and not as natural looking as they do on a CRT.

One aircraft in particular, the MC 202 (1942), I just happened to pick for a QB just to geta feel for the monitor. On this LCD monitor is coloured a very bright and rich dark green colour, certainly not an earth looking colour. Can someone please check what colour it looks like on a CRT and/or their own LCD. Is this the LCD distoring the colours or is this plane really meant to have that rich, vibrant saturated green colour?

Certainly not IL2 specific, but surely something of interest to you.

Cheers

I play on a laptop. I think of it as having "hardware motion blur support". /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I play on a 16 ms Hitachi CML174. I think the colors look much better on my lcd than on my old IIyama monitor, which was a high end CRT. Some LCD's hav problems with certain colors though I have read, maybe yours does not represent green well?
