Whats the best gaming LCD larger than 19" ? I have seen the Samsung 192T but I guess it's not coming out for awhile, but I like the way it looks and the wall mount included. Apparently the response time needs to be around 16ms

There aren't any 19" LCDs that have response time of less than 25 ms yet. I personally don't think that makes them suitable for gaming, considering I own a 16 ms LCD and I can notice some ghosting and streaking in games like Counterstrike and Quake 3. (Not much, but it's noticable). If you're still interested in 19" though, I hear the Dell 1800FP is a hell of a deal, and it's based on the Samsung model.

I think I saw an article i think maybe at hexus that showed some head guy at AMD used a 19' LCD for gaming.

It looks like the princeton has the best specs, but I can't find it for sale anywhere. http://www.prgr.com/Products/ProductsF.html

Anyone have any info on the Princeton SENergy 2081 ? Reviews or stores that carry it?

Thanks

I love my 2000FP!

The motion blur (ie, ghosting) is very minor and not noticeable in most games. At least to me, anyway.

The *only* complaint I have... which is a problem with most current LCDs is the fact that blacks aren't dark enough. Because of the backlight, there is always a slight white glow. Kinda makes games like Homeworld not look quite as good as they did on a CRT. Just my opinion...
