YES. But the speed varies with temperature.

If you have a very cold room the speed drops and folk forget there's a curve/relationship between speed and temp.

16mS has been fast enough except for 20 YO fighter pilots.

Yes, if you are mostly gaming, or...

...viewing lots of fast motion content (e.g. car races/fast sports). Having a panel with better response time can make a difference in this respect. OTOH, whether or not it's worth an extra $350 is going to be subjective, varying from person to person.

For me? No.

And almost no sets really give you 100Hz. Why? 1. The input signal is still 50Hz and double scanned to 100 in the set. GAMERS can be really upset if this produces lag. Be sure to research this thoroughly.

thanx all for your help really i aprecicate it. actually i can see the ghosting on satellite tv broadcast channels so as i understand from you getting faster tv wont help since the satellite recevier output is component SD with 60hz as ithink. i am using standerd Strong satellite receveir.

This area varies with countries so I can't guess if you are in the EU or other places. But if the ghosting is that bad it sounds defective or very cold. I'm not talking about the digital video issue or broadcast issues but the slight ghost over a single frame. From full on to off your average rating is full on to 50% off in about a frame so you should see a ghost on full bright spots moving over a black field. That's a limit of the technology and was seen back in CRT days.

i am in Jordan, the broadcast system is DV-Pal 25 fps, the ghosting is not eaisly visibile only you can notice it while watching Cartoon Network , you know the chrachters are almost white and a black strok around them make the ghoosting visibal some times. i am a3D designer and animator specalised in TV broadcast design and content,, i think this is what making th ghosting visible for me Happy .anyway i actully strat thinking to keep the tv after your comments and also after comparing my tv with sony tv 8 ms and i found the same issue.

At 25FPS you should see ghosting.

My background includes CCTV design and to avoid flicker in old CRTs at 25Hz the TV/display maker would use long persistence phosphors. To get a phosphor it would indeed smear and ghost from bright to dark areas. Nothing was considered busted but as we move past the CRT days you may feel leftover effects from those days.

-> You probably do not want a TV with 25Hz capability for use on a PC.
