>/except/ for the SGI 1600SW - latency as good as a CRT. (well good
>enough anyway. i can not produce latency artifacts on mine anyway.)
>>do current generation LCD's still have latency/ghosting problems?
yes. in the specific case as I mentioned above. They do not have latencies
that would be noticable in most situations, but as gaming was the prime
motivation for the choice of my monitor, I decided an LCD display wasnt good
You will not see any LCD monitors used by serious players of fps games. At
the big competitions, lans etc. Theres a very good reason for that. I'm not
saying LCD latencies are a problem for most users, they arent. I'm saying they
are an issue for some people. LCD's are not better, for everyone , in every
>> - much finer resolution.
My monitor, an iiyama vision master pro 453 can support up to 1920x1440. Now
while I'm sure you can get LCD's that support higher resolution, LCD's aimed
at the consumer market dont. You need to pay big bucks to get that in a LCD
display. Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure you will :)

Heh, as I said above.
> as to display flicker, lcds are better
Now, obviously refresh rates on two completely different technologies is a
daft method of comparison. My point was that a crt display with a very high
refresh rate is going to be acceptable to the vast majority of users. Perhaps
you misread my message.
