Written by someone who professionally tests display units at a display company. To summarize:
- 17-inch LCD monitors have better response times than 19-inch LCD monitors.
- 4ms LCD monitors have better response times than 8ms LCD monitors.
- LCD monitors using the latest Samsung panel advertised to have 4.0ms to 5.6ms in Black <-> White test, 4.7ms to 7.3ms in Gray <-> Gray test. Results with 19-inch LCD monitors are a little higher: 5.1ms to 10.1ms and 5.8ms to 12.1ms.
- Latest TN panels advertised to have 8ms response times could actually have 30ms or worse response times. VA (PVA of Samsung, MVA of Fujitsu, etc.) advertised to have 25ms response times could actually have 80ms or worse response times.
Another article about response times but written in October 2003.
The latter article concludes IPS panels are superior in response times to TN and VA panels and lists a few IPS panel makers: Hitachi of Japan (the original inventor of IPS technology), LG-Philips, IDT (of Taiwan, working with IBM), and "FFS" likely to be based on IPS of BOE-Hydis (former Hyundai Electronics TFT-LCD business unit, called just Hydis.)
A little more interesting article is:
IMID 2005 - Samsung S-PVA vs. LG.Philips LCD Enhanced S-IPS
Attached picture is one for LG.Philips LCD's Enhanced S-IPS. LG group itself promotes PDP HDTVs mainly rather than LCD HDTVs because LG Electronics makes PDP while LG.Philips LCD is not 100% owned by LG group. The opposite is true in Samsung. Samsung mainly promotes LCD HDTV because Samsung Electronics makes LCD while Samsung SDS, another part of Samsung group but still a competitor to Samsung Electronics, makes PDP and CRT for Samsung. On a reply in the last article, the author says Eizo of Japan is going to release 21-inch wide S-PVA LCD monitors soon. An 82-inch TFT-LCD was also displayed.
