    18 feet!? That's amazing!!! :p

    Was the monitor advertised with a better response time, or did you not take a look at that spec before you purchased it?

    Although its a nice birthday present ... i would opt to make some excuse to whomever you received the gift from that it doesnt quite work as it should with your particular system. Maybe they could return it and give you a gift certificate in which you could use with maybe a lil more cash to get one with 15ms or less response?

    Obviously whomever gave it to you knows what you are using it for and Im almost certain they would understand your request and would probably be delighted to help you out being they gave you the monitor for gaming :rolleyes:
    Unfortunately, the 30ms response time is written in stone and is probably being generous as most ratings are.

    Im not knocking your monitor or whomever gave you the item as a gift either. I dunno how old you are ..but it seems a pretty generous gift.:)

    It is a nice gift, but I agree that you need to find some way of getting a different monitor. You can definitely get an LCD for the same dollar amount (or less) that has a much better response time, so you shouldn't have an issue with needing more money. 25ms or less is recommended for gaming, but I recommend less than 20ms. There really isn't much you can do to prevent ghosting with a 30ms response time, which is why we're going straight to suggesting a different monitor altogether.

    Samsung makes some good LCDs. That would have been one of my recommendations. :)
