    As in my other thread, planning on picking up a 27" iMac. Gaming via Boot Camp will be part of the plan.

    Just curious: for those of you who do similar, particularly so with "twitchy" FPS games with fast reactions and the like, can you speak to ghosting or other issues due to the panel's response rate?

    Thanks much.

    Not the greatest experience, but decent. Response time is fine but input lag is noticeable. I play Quake though.

    Interesting. Kind of surprised about the input lag. I've noticed similar lag on GTA 5 on a PS4, although maybe for a different reason -- anything you could compare it to?

    Kinda similar to Dell U2713HM from what I recall, which had about 22ms input lag. The Thunderbolt Display has less input lag.
