How important is it to have a low G2G for gaming, is 8 or 10 to high ?

I'm thinking of getting the Benq GW2750HM it's a 27'' 60hz with DVI and HDMI which I need for the PS3. This model is advertised with 4ms G2G supposedly and it's a non TN panel what I want too.

This model has flicker-free technology, I can get this monitor for around 200$ now. Blacks, colors very good. no to very little back bleeding everything seems like a winner.

But according to this review it's not really 4ms G2G.

This is a quote from the review at the conclusion

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/benq_gw2760hs.htm#gaming

''The response time of the panel was a little slow by modern IPS/PLS/TN Film standards, and this remains one of the weaker areas of this VA technology. It showed improvements over some older generation AMVA panels, but there were still reasonable levels of blurring evident and with a 10.9ms average G2G response time it was perhaps not suitable for higher end gaming. The effort to boost response times even more through the 'Premium' AMA setting proved very problematic and the overshoot and artefacts are definitely to be avoided. Having said that, the lag was very low here which was a positive sign and so the screen should still be fine for some moderate gaming.''

I don't play for money but I do game alot, and I play of fps games all the time.


Should I buy it anyway and not worry about it ?

1 ms is ideal but 4ms is still good.

Yeah it is but according to the review it rarely stays around 4 ms. So not sure what to think about it.

You can never go by what is stated in the specs. You need to look at in-depth reviews of the monitor.

The funny thing is the Dell U2312HM is an IPS monitor @ 60hz, but it has some of the best response times and least input lag even when compared to 120hz monitors.

Input lag matters more than G2G response time, and that's something nobody advertises. You gotta use sites like TFTcentral to find out. Like the U2312HM has a G2G of 8ms, but the input lag is near zero so it actually beats out most monitors in total response time even if they have 2-5ms G2G.

I'm currently using a 32'' 1080p HDTV Samsung that is about 5-6 years old. If you would have to guess what would it's G2G do you think it would be ? cause I've been using it for a while and I've not really noticed any blur on it or it's there and I did not pay any attention or did not see it.

My monitor is a 60Hz IPS panel and 5ms response time, I have no problems whatsoever.
Read review though, sometimes the companies botch the response time. As long as the response time is lower than your framerate, you shouldn't really notice anything unless you're REALLY trying.

Ok then,


I'm thinking of getting this monitor GW2760HS it's advertised as a G2G 4 ms but it's BS it avrages 10.9 ms.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/benq_gw2760hs.htm#gaming



For lag the monitor is rated at class 1 the best for lag rating.

Let me ask you guys would you game on this monitor ?

G2G is really meaningless. It's just a way for manufacturers to increase their stated response time. White-black-white is the one that matters and the majority don't state it.
