What do you think of the HP Pavilian 22bw 1080p IPS monitor for gaming?

Here is a link to the item. Mostly positive reviews but I'm not sure if any of the reviewers used it for games. I bought this monitor yesterday and I like it, but was looking for other opinions before I decide to keep it or not. Thanks.

I wanted something relatively small but no more than 1080p.

Do you think the 2ms difference is worth the extra money? The HP was only like $136 with tax. The other one is like $40 more.

I didn't look at either monitor, but a 2ms difference is in-perceivable by anyone that's not a top gun ace wizard US air-force fighter pilot on eyedrugs.

If it's just a 2ms difference get the one thats cheaper and has a better image quality.

Should check out the HP xi series. Also gets great reviews looks better than the bw maybe newer.

I recently played for two months on a 1080p 8ms Dell IPS monitor my wife got and it's honestly not a problem, probably more psychological for most people than an actual hindrance. You should be fine.

I have a 1ms monitor and my old one was 5ms. Never had ghosting or anything on the 5ms and not the new one either.

Response time is an almost meaningless stat on monitors.
