Flat screen advice

  wotbus@ 19:27 11 Dec 2006

I have narrowed my Christmas present down to 2, and here's the indecision ;-)
Specs are much the same, but (A) 4ms response time and 2000:1 contrast and (B) 2ms response time and 700:1 contrast.
It will be used mainly for office work and Flt Sim, no games. Any advice welcome.

Go with (A), 4ms is plenty fast enough and to achieve a contrast ratio so high it must be a PVA or MVA LCD panel whereas the other one is likely to be a TN panel.

Thanks for that Mr Mistoffelees. As I am breaking new ground would you care to explain PVA/MVA against TN? Is one better/newer than the other? Umm, laymans terms also, thanks.

The models in question are LG (4ms/2000) and Samsung (2ms/700), just in case anyone is wondering.
