Is a close as you can get for decent, but no TFT is ideal for Games, Iiyama ProLite models as sharp as you can get.

Hi Redberry thanx 4 the response but I thought the quicker the response time the better the TFT 4 gaming.........?

How true is that..?

Responce time is basically how quick a pixel will change from one colour to the next when told to change colour.

A high value will result is fast moving graphics leaving a 'trail' behind.

As the pixels take so long to change from 'moving object' colour back to 'background' colour they will still be visible in 'moving object' colour after the moving object has moved off.

So basicall the smaller, the better.

Savastore seem to have a good selection & are cheaper than Ebuyer: 10 pages to look thro', in order of ascending prices, starting at click here. All the best with your search & purchase. G

A small selection of the less expensive ones with a low response time [in brackets] & corresponding Ebuyer prices for some:

Acer AL1912S 19" TFT Silver [16ms] - click here - £282.12 inc VAT.

AG Neovo F419 TFT Black DVI 19" [15ms/10ms Typical. To confirm response time click here] - click here - £292.28 inc VAT (£327.97 inc VAT at Ebuyer).

LG L1915S 19" TFT Silver [12ms] - click here - £298.22 inc VAT (£331.93 inc VAT at Ebuyer). This seems excellent for the price with a 12ms response time.

Sharp LL191AB 19" [16ms] - click here - £304.03 inc VAT (£334.77 inc VAT at Ebuyer).

BenQ FP931 19" TFT Silver/Black [16ms] - click here - £310.67 inc VAT.

Emailed Ilyama the other day and was informed that they will be bringing out a 19" TFT screen with a response time of 8 or 12ms in the near future.

Here is their reply.......

Dear Brian,

Apologises for the delay in getting back to you with regards to your enquiry, I was waiting for some information to come through which I now have. We are hoping to get a new 19” LCD into our range sometime in January 2005, the part number will be PLH481S and will be available in silver, black or ivory. The basic spec of this new panel will be similar to our current PLE481S i.e., speakers, DVI, Pivot and will also include a height adjustable stand with either an 8 or 12 m/sec response time.

I am afraid that this is all the information we have on our road map at the moment, but if you do have any further queries then I will do my best to find the answer for you.

Many thanks

Just had a look at one of your links 3rd one in the list. [AG Neovo F419 TFT Black DVI 19" [15ms/10ms Typical.]

Not sure on how suppliers word their specs but because it gives a typical timing with two figures. [15ms/10ms]. I'm wondering if that is actually 25 ms. A combined figure to turn a pixel on/off/on again?

Looking through Tomshardware guide, they do explain that some times, splitting the timings into two measurements is a way of implying a quick response time.

If this is correct, then it's a sneaky way of trying to impress the public with what seems a fast response time when your trying to compare with other makes/models :o(

You may be right as the response time is 25ms on the Savastore link - click here & look at 'Response time' under 'Display'. I do agree it is sneaky if that's true. G
