    I've been looking at getting a 24" monitor, Acer's have a low response time compared to most I've seen.

    Depends on what you want to use it for

    Same here. However, if i could do it over again...I would have gone with a different LCD monitor.

    Below 5ms, you'll never notice the response time anyway.

    Really? Good to know... this applies to movies & gaming, I assume :hs: Opens up my options more.

    Can anyone recommend a good 24" monitor, for gaming & HD playback?

    I have one and I have no complaints about it but I will not buy another. Next time I am in the market I will probably get a samsung.

    Does Samsung use Royal Philips LCD panels? If not, I'm not interested.

    It applies to anything, since gaming is the most intensive use of a screen. Even movies don't go above 60fps in the best scenarios.

    Dell 2408WFP or Samsung 245T.
    Both use the same S-PVA panel made by Samsung.

    anything else below these models use TN panels which are great for gaming, but sucks for HD playback.

    Samsung use TN and their own PVA and S-PVA panels.

    The LG screen I posted looks fantastic for documents, movies, and games alike.
