I'm asking this in the gaming section since response time of monitors are a big deal for twitch gaming on consoles.

My friend recently bought a Samsung UN22D5000NF. I can't find any information on its response time. I know it has a Game Mode, but no hard numbers are given when you activate it. I searched all over the Internet for a response time on the thing, but I can't find any info.

Anyone have any idea what the response time on this TV is?

Edit: I am asking on this site because I think response times are relevant to gaming (I play games that make me sensitive to such things). Obviously TVs are used as gaming-related hardware - you cannot play on a console without one, so I thought this site would be the right one to post this.

I can't believe that LCD response time matters nowadays. Responses should be fractions of a frame (30 or 60 Hz), an interval of time that probably only ever matters at top competitive play (over LAN, as typical internet latency is far higher than that) – Nick T Nov 21 '11 at 3:48

I can't give you a specific reference, but every single Samsung LED TV I've ever seen has a 2ms response time (we have several of them, ranging from 32" to 50" in our office).

The "gaming" mode turns off a bunch of the post-processing effects that the TV applies to its image. They're useful for when watching normal TV, but because gaming relies on instant visual feedback, they are disabled in gaming mode.
