In this review (June 26, 2003)
http://graphics.tomshardware.com/display/20030626/lcd-06.html#hyundai_q17
The Q17 wins beacuse of it's panel (20 ms and no color dither)

but in Hyundai's page
http://www.hyundaiq.com/pro_q17.asp#
says it got 16.2 million colors (wich is 18 bits color+dither)
instead of 16.7 million colors (24 bit true color)

So how many colors it really have?

(yea I'm obsesed with colors) :screwy:

PD:
Any other monitor with panels with true color (and <=20ms response time)?

Yes, there is actually a explination for that. The panel on the market NOW uses the AUOptronics 16ms panel.

When that model name first came out, it used Hyundai's panel witch had the 20ms full color panel. However due to cost and whatnot, they scraped it and went with the more profitble cheep 16ms panel. However they did NOT change the name of the panel for some odd reason.
