    Even the new ones??? They are supposed to have the fastest response time. Oh well, I guess it proves that no matter what you read, you should always EYEBALL the monitor you wanna buy.

    Exactly :mrgreen: I remember it was a Dell 19" UltraSharp, TN based. I tried O2Jam on it, I can clearly see trails behind the notes as they were falling from top to the bottom of the screen. In fact, the ghosting was so bad that it's really unbearable :lol: At first I thought it was a P-MVA based panel, but I went into it's control panel and check, turned out to be a TN, to my surprise.

    Just a quick note, the Samsung 226BW has disappeared from most online stores. Maybe it will be discontinued?

    Probably something like S-IPS or that sort.. my friend is using the Dell 2007WFP 20" panel that cost him about RM1300 (about USD400) about 1-2 years ago. Now it's still around RM950-1050 (about USD300). It's quite good though and according to him it has good performance.

    Yup! I use the same monitor, albeit with an S-PVA panel. Works great. :thumb:

    Mine's the FP (not widescreen) although I have a 2407WFP attached to the testbed.
