I was referring to LCD 'monitors' (i.e. not hdtv's) when I said the typical lag is 16ms.
16ms for an HDTV : lh30 series with LG panel, LZ800, 650a, not many more...
It's hard to get below 30 with an HDTV.
The VT20/VT25 is by no means slow in regards to its peers.
I'm coming from the perspective of someone who wants a display only
for use as a computer monitor.
Meaning that I'm willing to give up quite a lot of features, and certain other items weigh more heavily than usual (like lag).
FYI, My ideal display :
- 2d 120hz input and output (120 unique frames per second)
- 3d 120hz input, with 240hz output (120 unique frame pairs per second, each refreshed at 8ms per eye, refreshed twice per frame)
- 0 ghosting in 3D
- 0 ms input lag, always (like iiyama somehow manages to do with a bunch of their lcd displays)
- 1080p+ resolution (but not too much more - to keep game frame rates high at native rez)
- 45+ inches
- nice black levels, so I can use it at night with low brightness setting, without searing my eyes.
- Color quality is nice to have, but I don't care if it looks 'just ok'.
- I don't care for any post-processing technologies whatsoever
- Inputs : 1+ vga 1+ dvi 1+ hdmi
- audio is irrelevant
- extra technologies (i.e. netflix, usb pictures, movies, etc) are irrelevant
- priced under 2500 usd (though, I'll take free if someone wants to give! :P)
