Hi! Don't know if this has been posted yet but I'll post it anyways...
As you can see, the curve didn't quite reach the 8 ms we were promised, but an explanation is in order. With the monitor pushed all the way to 100% contrast, we did get roughly 8ms at the ISO point (255 on the curve). The only problem is that the image is not usable; the color dynamics are completely wiped out. So we chose a more appropriate contrast adjustment, one that's closer to the actual conditions under which the display will be used. And that resulted in a latency reading of 10 ms in the best case.

Does that mean that this is a bad monitor? By no means. As the curve shows, the worst latency measurement we got on this Samsung 190EX-L01 panel was 27.5ms, whereas 12 ms models easily go beyond 30 and even up to 35ms. And we've found 12 ms models sufficiently responsive for gaming use.

Looks to me, as though TFT displays don't have as high ms as the companies are reporting!
