Hmmm... they do say time is relevant... It takes more than "a moment" to clear the persistence on one of my monitors. More like several minutes.

Not true. I can have one on one of my monitors in less than a day, though it is dependent on the content of the screen. High contrast edges with high brightness levels cause the most problems.
