    Hi,

    I'm thinking of buying a 26" LCD TV in the next few days, I've found a model I like with a good spec but the response time is 25ms. I know 16ms is the recommended max so will this be a major issue?. Would should I expect with 25ms response?

    I'll be using the screen for HD XBox and Pal Progressive DVD's.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Turl

    i'm no expert but it sounds like smear city.

    is there anyway you can view the screen in action?

    there are several bigger lcds available with a better response time for around the £600 mark - that cant be too far away from the price your willing to pay for the set youve mentioned.

    DON'T BUY IT! I had a 19" monitor with a 20ms responce rate and that smeared alot, 25ms will be useless for gaming!!!!!!!!!!!

    16ms or less is the only way to go for gaming!!!

    Thanks chaps....I think you're right. I've just checked Sound and Vision Online and there is lots of options for £6-700.

    Many thanks,
