    Does anyone have an idea what the new 24" iMac screen response time is? I tried looking for it on the Apple-site and on google, but can't find anything else apart from the older Cinema Displays.

    I forget exactly what Samsung panel the 24" uses, it's a PVA or S-IPS panel.

    Amazing panel with a fast response time, surely something like 5 or 6ms

    The new 24" iMacs use an LG.Philips LG240WU2-SL/B1 LCD panel. Can't find any specs on the LG.Philips site, but tftcentral.uk.co reports that it's the same basic panel as the ($1400!) NEC LCD2490WUXi (no info on whether the NEC panel has the same "SL/B1" suffix).

    TFTcentral lists the response time as: "12 ms gray-to-gray"

    NEC specifies: "Rapid Response (16 ms / 8 ms gray-to-gray)"

    I have now told you more than I know about response time specs.


    BTW, the previous 24" iMac used an LG.Philips LM240WU2-SL/A1 -- but I can't find any information on what the "A1" vs. "B1" suffixes might imply. And, according to tftcentral, Apple's Cinema Displays all use LG.Philips panels -- very similar in quality to the iMac panels.

    So, it appears that the 24" Intel-iMacs have very high-quality S-IPS panels (optimized for color quality and viewing angle, rather than speed) -- but somehow, Apple managed to screw-up the backlighting on the current model.

    Was the 24" iMac always a LG panel? I thought they were Samsung.

    I had known the 20" is a LG TN panel.

    I have no reliable information on "always" or "every," but numerous owners of 24" Intel-iMacs, (who have probed their own machines via SwitchResX and similar apps), invariably report finding an LG.Philips LM240WU2.

    ...Google it. ...the web knows all,
