Not a difference you would notice no:http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mon...ameters_3.html
"To cut it short, when the LCD matrixs own response time is below 10 milliseconds, its further reduction brings a smaller effect than might be expected because the persistence of human vision enters the play as an important factor."
The real issue is that response times given by manufacturers typically aren't the response times you get due to other factors like input lag. You basically can't tell until you use the display if there's any lag/ghosting or not:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnApFzmd9NY
It's the same with the backlighting, you can't tell if you will get uneven backlighting until you see it in front of you. The only solid reference for a good display is the panel type IPS > PVA > TN. That order stays the same for price and reverse it for response time. PVA is a very good compromise for the best all-round.
I would say that you will more quickly recognize the quality flaws with a TN panel than any lag with an IPS or PVA display. Here is an example of the blacks on a future IPS screen:http://www.electronista.com/articles...tra.dark.fast/
