ms = milliseconds

Typically, the fewer milliseconds, the better.

Yeah, it's how fast the pixels can change, I think.

I would personally recommend Viewsonic or Samsung as the best LCDs depending on model.

I still say dell. Even though some of their pc's really stink, the quality of their lcd's are really nice.

Yeah, Dell, Acer, NEC and ProView make some of the best ones in terms of quality and performance. Viewsonic and Samsung's LCD's are decent in picture quality, but usually are faster in terms of response rates (at least for the price...NEC's 8ms LCD's are expensive).

Acer makes TONS of things. They make their own laptops, LCD monitors and they even make laptops for companies like HP, Dell, Compaq etc. (except for Sony)
