good article thanks.

one thing i may add is response time. u see monitors out there with 2ms and now 1ms response time this is all a sales point. the human eye detects light changes at 4ms so any monitor that claims under 4ms response time is pointless. i always tell people, wave your hand in front of your face really fast u will see the point that the human eye naturally uses motion blurring.
