[visionlist] Flat-screen Monitor for Psychophysics

We are looking for a 27’’ flat-screen monitor with fast refresh rate (120Hz or more) 
and minimal temporal blurring of pixel luminance. It would be used for psychophysics

on motion stimuli, and steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) recordings 

requiring reliable luminance flicker of stimuli at distinct frequencies.

I know that CRTs are better (still?) than flat-screens in terms of pixel-decay times, 

and OLEDs or Viewpixx monitors are better too. – But right now we don’t have 

the money for a 27’’ OLED or viewpixx, and not enough space for CRT. 

Hence: does anyone have a recommendation for a suitable 27’’ (HD resolution is fine)

 monitor? Or experience for/against certain types of models / technologies?

Many thanks and best,
