Before owning a VP930b I was using a SyncMaster 712N. So i know what LCDs are like. The problem I am getting with this VP930 is really bad ghosting/smearing/trailing (what ever you want to call it) on pure black. But this happens only under certain circumstances. I didn't notice anything when playing WoW or GuildWars and even Doom 3. But about 2 weeks in owning this monitor I wanted to finish F.E.A.R. and thats when I noticed it. In fact, its very hard not to miss it because I get it everywhere. For example: guns lying on the floor and details on the wall that have pure black in it. The ghosting is really just a comet trail of black, no real details in the ghosting. When this was noticed I really started to look for in other games. I can get this in WoW but only in certain areas. Like the Auction Room in Orgrimmar. It can happen when other players are wearing some armour with black or very deep colour. But if i follow them outside of the auction room the ghosting is gone. I can also get this Counter Strike Source. Like in tunnels or indoor rooms that are sort of dark. Can any other VP930 owners duplicate this ghosting? I put in a RMA with the buyer just incase this is a defect. Now since I'm here talking about the VP930 I might as well do a mini review. I'm doing this review ignoring the ghosting/trailing of black. Right now I am assuming this is a defect since no one, on forums or reviews, have mentioned this. My previous monitor is a 712N my samsung. The specs are 17", analog, 12ms response, 600 contrast, 300 brightness. Some of my review will be comparing this 712N with the VP930b which I have setup in clone mode. Out of the box this monitor is too warm and the greys have a pink hue to them. So after different calibrations I finally settled on 7500K colour temp. and a brightness of 32 and a contrast of 53. The constrast level is actually really important because i found that grey levels are greatly affected by the contrast. Any higher then 53 in contrast, greys will take on a pink hue. Too high a contrast and greys will turn to white. So now that this calibrated the way i like it. I have to say this monitor has excellent Image Quality. Compared to my 712N this is a vivid and clear looking monitor. My 712N looks white washed compared to VP930. Blacks are no where as dark as the VP930 even after any type of adjusting on the 712N. Greys are either too light or too dark on the 712N in the same scene in F.E.A.R. compared to the VP930. When it comes to IQ the VP930 makes me very happy. In games the level of motion blur is actually very similar to my 712N. I actually was a little disappointed by this. I was hoping for clear details on moving objects in games but I guess that is the nature of LCDs. Its no worse then the 712N but if it is better its only minor. I love looking at this monitor. It is bright and clear and vivid without burning my eyes out. It's really comfortable to look at. Photos look great and movies look good but to be honest if I was to watch movies I watch it on my TV. I can easily recommend this monitor to other people.
