BenQ GW2760HS good for PC gaming & does it have 1.1 pixel mapping for PS3 ?

It has less then one frame of input lag, but all the reviews basically say the pixel response isn't that great. But, is it horrible ?

Benq says 4ms.. the AU panel inside is rated at 12ms. With overdrive (AMA) on high it's something like 10 ms. How well would this work for console games and emulators in the real world ?

I want a big inexpensive all round good monitor that i will also play consoles/emulators/pc games on daily (ps3). I play all types of games including fps.

My current monitor is not even a real monitor it's a 32'' HDTV. In my head i see the GW2760HS as kinda slow compared to a current TN (or IPS?), But, probably way faster then my current HDTV I'm using right now correct ?

About the PS3, a lot of games on the PS3 only have 720p so I don't want the monitor to stretch the image to 1080p, I don't mind having black bars around the PS3 games either. I looked on the BenQ website for a manual but for some reason it don't have one.

*UPDATE* I was able to find a manual for this monitor after all. Here is what the manual says about it,

Display Mode:

This feature is provided to allow aspect ratios other than 16:9 to be
displayed without geometric distortion.

Full: Scales the input image to fill the screen. Ideal for 16:9
aspect images.

*Aspect: The input image is displayed without geometric*
distortion filling as much of the display as possible.

The last option with the asterisks is that what I want for 1.1 pixel mapping for my PS3 ? If so why not just call it 1.1 pixel mapping.

Aspect is not what you want. Aspect will stretch the image to fill the screen, but maintain the original aspect ratio of the image. What you want to look for is a "no scaling" option.

I'd give aspect scaling a try anyway. 720p "stretched" to 1080p does not necessarily look bad. It depends on how good the monitor's internal scaler is.

And your pixel response is fine. For 60hz screens, you would only get ghosting at 16.67ms or slower. Currently no consumer grade monitor is that slow, though some TVs are.
