Response Time

The monitor’s specified response time of 14 milliseconds may provoke some apprehensions about its real-life responsiveness.

Indeed, my measurements suggest that its real average response time is 16.7 milliseconds (GtG). This is faster than the responsiveness of C-PVA monitors (e.g. the Samsung SyncMaster F2380 had an average response time of 20 milliseconds (GtG) with some transitions taking as long as 50 milliseconds and more) but the EA231WMi is no competitor in speed to fast 2-millisecond TN-based monitors and even to 5-millisecond ones.

Thus, the EA231WMi is just fast enough for work and movies but may not be good for dynamic games. But if you have a 5- or 8-millisecond TN-based monitor or an old 25-millisecond S-IPS and are satisfied with their response time, the EA231WMi will be practically the same for you.

As you can guess, this model has no response time compensation and, consequently, no RTC-related visual artifacts.
