Newegg Has this monitor for $339. I got it from there and was told by other people who had this monitor that there was no ghosting in games. Well, it does. So I'm selling it for money to get one with a better response time.

It has everything it came with, and was only out of the box for about 15 minutes. Weren't any dead pixels and the picture is pretty damn good. Specs are on the newegg link.

I'm wanting to get $300 for it and I'll ship it fedex unless you want USPS.

my email is kurupt at d3k dot org

that is weird as hell. Im on a 17 inch LCD monitor with a refresh rate of 40ms. yes you read right FORTY ms. And there's NO GHOSTING at all in games. You in fact should see less ghostin than me!. Mine's a Philips 170B2 btw.

not to hijack...but are you saying you don't see any trails RSM? 40ms response time is ludicrously high. I've had lower pings, and I have the broadband connection from hell.

i see tiny trails say on windows when draggin a window or moving the mouse real fast, but on games not at all. (I might note my the fastest fps i get in any game could probably be D3 with around 62.5 fps, but still no ghosting)
I do hear it's a weird happening on Philips 170B2's though, how despite their high response time they see no ghosting. or maybe i need to play faster paced games at higher fps i dunno

that could be. the games i play are pretty fast paced and i play them at usually around 300 fps or more. i did try enabling vsync to see if it got rid of the problem but it didn't. its a shame too, as this monitor has better picture than anything i saw at best buy under a grand. just the fricken ghosting :(
