I've been playing video games most of my life and I've been reviewing monitor for a few years now, but  I still have trouble noticing a difference between a 2ms response time and a 5ms response time when gaming. Actually, to be honest, I do not see a difference, which is not surprising given recent findings .

On Thursday, ViewSonic sought to challenge my eyes further when it announced its VX2739wm. According to ViewSonic, the VX2739wm is the world's first 27-inch "Full HD" monitor with a 1ms response time. According to the company, the display has a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, but I'll remain skeptical until I can test it.

On the VX2739wm, ViewSonic includes HDMI, DVI and VGA ports, as well as a four-port USB hub. The display is also VESA compliant for wall mounting.

The ViewSonic VX2739wm has a $349 price tag and is available now. Look for a full review soon, or at least as soon as I can get one in and not notice a real difference in its response time.
