idk... the motion blur on this monitor seems like a little much for an advertised response time of 5ms.
it also has some noticeable backlight bleeding.
i can deal with the bleeding, but the motion blur is starting to bug.

Samsung
2243BWT-TAA-1 22" Widescreen LCD
Maximum Resolution - 1680 x 1050 Maximum Resolution
Viewing Angles - 170° horizontal / 160° vertical viewing angles
Pixel Pitch - 0.282mm pixel pitch
Response Time - 5ms
Brightness - 300 cd/m2 brightness
Contrast Ratio - 1000:1 contrast ratio
DB15 VGA Inputs (1)
DVI Inputs (1)


connected with a dvi cable.

using optimum res (1680x1050) and refrate (60hz).

lowered the res to 1280x800, still has the motion blur.

gpu: nvidia geforce 8600 gt.

os. win 7 64bit

latest graphics and monitor drivers installed.

i'm not well versed in monitor specifics and this is my first ...mid-range, i guess.. monitor... so any insight into this would be helpful.

You did not put the specs of your graphics cards - there are several versions of the 8600GT, some with only 256Mb of RAM, some up to 1Gb.

Are you using the digital input?

256MB

Well, I am not a gamer, they may have more experience with blurring motion, but my guess would be having only 256Mb is probably your problem. It would be good if you can try another monitor on that system, or your monitor with a heftier card.

what is fast enough then?

has anyone else had a problem using a 22 inch monitor with this card or any 256mb card?

what if i buy a faster card and there is no improvement?

i need some reassurance that this is problem.

also, as i said before, i lowered the res and there was no improvement.
and this card supports this monitor's max res. so i doubt its the card.

i really don't want to have to take this monitor back... but its looking that way.

Not to me. To me it is still looking like the card. And note that LCDs monitor work best at their "native" resolution - lowering the resolution would not help, in fact I would think could make it worse.

i need some reassurance that this is problem.

As I said above,
