Have had this for 5 days now, fully calibrated and run through a barage of games and movies. Love it. I took back an LG 2361-V when I saw this was in. No regrets at all. Input lag is almost null. Digital Versus .com shows it against its brother the P2370 and ghosting is worse on the P2370 as its is almost none on the XL2370. XL2370 scored better on input lag also.

Select the catagory you want to compare in the middle of the screen. Games tested thus far and trust me, they are gorgeous!
All on PC mind you: Star Wars:Force Unleashed Ulitmate Sith Edition, Team Fortress 2, Ghostbusters(new one), World of Warcraft, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age Origins, Dirt 2 Demo (looks really sweet, no ghosting that I can tell), Borderlands, Left 4 Dead 2, Crysis, Far Cry 2, and Street Fighter 4. As long as you run something along the lines of a GTX260 216 or Radeon 4870 and up, everything will run smooth and look crisp on this monitor. Only disappointment is not having the room for a Tri-monitor setup with this monitor. Not a BS post, I truly have this monitor and its pretty sweet folks! Specially for a TN type of monitor.
