I don't want to troll this thread or cause an argument so I'll leave it at that.

PVA monitors have AWESOME contrast ratios, so for *watching* media they are great. They have awesome black levels, and are much better in every way than the cheap TN panels that you see going around these days. I'll also agree on the Dell comment, they make great solid monitors.
Some PVA models do have input lag, but once again, it's not the case with this monitor. Never had a problem with it when it came to gaming. My original point was that PVA is better than IPS in terms of gaming and video.
But in all honesty, i'm just speculating. All the info about IPS i got from forums and articles. I've never had the $$ to own a IPS panel
