X-bit Labs has taken a look at seven LCD displays and takes a look at the ISO 13406-2 method to measure to response time of LCD panels. The following monitors were reviewed: Samsung SyncMaster 173P+, Samsung SyncMaster 193P+, Samsung SyncMaster 970P,
Samsung SyncMaster 730BF, Samsung SyncMaster 930BF, Samsung SyncMaster 760BF, ViewSonic VX724 and ViewSonic VX924.
The ISO 13406-2 method to measure the monitor’s response time as the total time necessary to change the state of a pixel from pure black to pure white and back again brings but very little information about the real performance of the monitor and easily misleads the user. Today we are going to reveal all secrets about this parameter and discuss the response time compensation that affects the quality of dynamic images on the screen of 7 monitors from ViewSonic and Samsung.
