    It has the response time of a TN type, but the view angle of a superior monitor type. And it's dirt cheap! It makes me suspect Soyo is lying (I've seen similar specs at other etailers).

    It's just that I put an order for an Asus 24" from Newegg. I want to make sure the specs are true before I cancel it.

    Edit: Whatever, the prices aren't that different if I send in my rebate form. I'll spend the extra 20 bucks to avoid all the hassle. Mine has an integrated webcam anyway.

    It still bugs me that Soyo could be outright lying to customers. I read the PureOC article on lcd displays, and it doesn't make sense. Maybe they've improved the technology that much since then...
