    Going to recommend the vp930b, as I can't find reviews on the Vx922, this is my best bet:

    Yes, its indeed a problem that the VX922 got no reviews :/

    I am afraid that the VP930B will ghost, tho i am doing real fine with my current AS4314UT iiyama LCD screen which is 20MS, maybe i am just used to its ghosting, since i dont spot them in it, i am using it like 3.5 years or so, thats why i want to change now.

    scratch that, both are mentioned in this review:

    http://www.behardware.com/articles/602-8/1...-and-above.html

    Appears both monitors have quiote bad color fidelities. I'd suggest you look on some of the other monitors tested here, even in other reviews. Behardware are very thorough in testing monitors.

    Remember to discern what you weill mainly be using it for (Photo/video editing or modelling? Get good color fidelity and slower response times. Games? Response times FTW.)

    Here, in israel, there arent many models.

    I think these two are my only options, the importers dont bring all the models.

    I cant buy it abroad since the percentage to get a damaged monitor (dead pixel/lightt problems, etc.) is kinda high.

    But some here bought the VP930B, they are saying the colors are amazing...

    Also, i buy the monitor for GAMING.

    You know, its not like importers teleport them from the factory to the stores, they transport them using samekind of methods than if you buy it from some other country.

    anyways, many old CRT owners wonder what TFT to buy, my answer to them is that whatever they choose, it'll be better than their old one anyways :wink:

    response times etc ofc are nice figures in paper, but its not like you would turn into pro instanly after having megahyper TFT with 4ms times, or slower one would turn you into nooblet instantly. I would more watch the colors that the TFT can handle

    Dunno, too risky for me to buy it aboard, and when i come home i see a dead pixel, then i need to send it back etc.

    Also, in game you dont mind the colors so much, and currently i am using a very old lcd screen and i have no problem with the colors i guess, so anything new will be a bless.

    As reading many reviews from people in newegg they say the colors arent as bad as the link MahaTmA gave reported.

    By the way, i have found this nice thing :

    http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.cf...hreadid=1745344

    There are some talks about lcd's there.

    At paragraph 11 they are recommending review sites :

    "English version of hardware.fr but beware of their claims. For example, they recommend the Samsung 730BF for gaming but it turns out it has unbearable sparkly effects.)"

    i find it really odd that the "behardware" gave such a low rating for the colors of the VP930B, which is considered to have good colors. :roll:

    They don't "rate" it, they send a picture of a certain color to the screen, then measure via a high-quality optical probe how close to color is to the requested. Even though you might see a vividly colored scene, you wouldn't see it s it's "supposed" to be.

    There are some very good monitors out there, thre are just a lot of over-hyped ones as well

    Compare the first table in this: http://www.behardware.com/articles/602-10/...-and-above.html

    With the images here:

    I got a LCD screen and its like well. I´d recommend that you just put alittle more money into it and buy a HDTV monitor instead. MUCH MUCH better quality!
