Meh... the more I read the more concerned I get about the Asus MK241H's picture quality.
Backlight bleeding and banding would bother me as much as input lag.
Its extremely difficult to find a good RECENT comparison of 24" LCDs. Most are from 1-2 years ago when even the low end TN models were $500 so they were compared to IPS and PVA panels directly. Also, most LCD-related sites seem to be based in the UK so most of the models and brands are different.
This happens every time I start shopping for an LCD and its the reason I'm still using a CRT.
