    Nah they arent that bad for gaming. You just have to look after them.

    The thing i dont like about some LCD's is if you are moving around fast, you get a blur.

    I have an 18.1 LCD that I got from Gateway. I play unreal tournament and unreal tournament 2003 and they play beautifully on it. Can't say I see a difference other than no glare! w00t.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your lcd. As long as it's a good monitor you shouldn't have any problems.

    I think some ppl just like what they like. I think it has to do with the refresh rate. it&#39;s the DIE HARDS that feel this way. But, like i said, I&#39;ve had no problems...I actually prefer the lcds b/c, well, they just look so damn seksi :-D

    dead pixels, eh? Alrighty. That is an annoying problem with lcds. you always run the risk of getting a dead pixel (off) or an always on pixel (always on). :|

    Which sucks, to say the least. Many manufacturers will replace the monitor if a certain amount of these pixels exist, or if they exist too close together. you&#39;d have to read up on their policy for dead pixels.

    I, myself, have 2 lcds and the larger has one dead pixel. Actually, I think it&#39;s an always on pixel. I only notice it on certain wallpapers (black ones) and I never see it otherwise...also, the average person would never notice it, however I inspected the monitor thoroughly.

    So, there you have it. check their policy on pixels. they say that gently massaging might help, but it didn&#39;t. gotsta cross ur fingers on that one.

    LCD simply don&#39;t have the reaction speed that a CRT has. The pixels are on/off(like a window shutter). It&#39;s this on/off that is slow. I mean, the response time of pixels is slow compared to what a CRT can do. It&#39;s a given fact that CRTs are better over all. I mean this objectively. If you own an LCD, and are happy with it, fine. Everyones&#39; perception is different. I&#39;m merely speaking from a technical perspective. LCDs are passive. They don&#39;t produce light and are backlit by a florescent light source. Whereas CRT monitors are "active" and actually produce colored light(red/blue/green).

    As far as dead pixels go. This is a pixel that doesn&#39;t work(stuck in the "off" position). Most LCD manufacturers have an allowance of dead pixels before considering the monitor defective. For example, your new monitor may have 3 dead pixels but the manufacturer says we won&#39;t repair/replace it unless it has more then 3 pixels dead. Kinda sucks but there ain&#39;t shit anyone can do about it.

    You can&#39;t fix a dead pixel. The LCD panel within the monitor must be replaced as a whole.

    There&#39;s more to it but that&#39;s the basics of it. Check howstuffworks.com for more info..
