It won't be delivered until Monday.

It seems i've just been incredibly lucky with TFT's and in the past had the three screens with the lowest in/output lag in existance (finally landing on my 30" Dell which I *was* going to replace with the 2408).
I noticed the lag just on the cursor on the desktop and games were unplayable for me on it - it gave me a totally detached feeling from anything I was doing with the mouse and was horrible.
I even looked for a new 30" that didn't fall foul to the issue but the newest 30" models all seem to have more inputs and more image processing gubbins to introduce delays, as far as i'm concerned, TFT's havn't moved forward since the 3007WFP that is god knows how many years old now!

Jesus.. is it that bad on new screens? Seriously, I can't detect anything here and mine's supposed to be one of the worst contenders for input lag.
I'm worried about upgrading now.
IS this just a problem only with PVA screens, or would the Dell 3008 also suffer? As far as I know, it's a IPS screen. I wanted to upgrade to IPS for colour reasons, and viewing angle reasons, but if lag on new monitors is so bad you can't bear to use the mouse in Windows they wouldn't be saleable.
