    Note the Number of Supported Colours

    If it states 16.7m then its a True 16 Mil colour display


    If it States 16.2 its not, as it uses dithering to get the extra colours,
    its base is Only 262.000 colours..

    Most of the Faster response ones uses this trick, Plus it also reflected in
    the Price..

    The cheaper ones use a 8 bit pannel but the real ones use a 16 bit panel.


    So Buyer Beware.

    Interesting, I never even thought it would be an issue.
    Thanks for the heads up, as a co-worker is considering one.
