I hate to bring it up, but there might be worse display lag in the VA panels than the IPS, something which is obviously a consideration for some of us. Not me--I'm a gamer but I don't play...

For me, the big deal is that they cannot achieve the superior contrast that they claim in the models with IPS panels. They make the same claims for all of the P-Series panels. It's seem a bit (or...

I never play competitive multiplayer, ever, but I might play a single crucible match just to get rid of that "crucible invitation" nag at the Tower. Or will it just come back?
