Looking at motion blur pictures or getting detailed measurements like the ones on tft central will give you a better idea of what it will perform like.

Yes, motion blur pictures (pursuit camera) is a great way if your priority is motion clarity with minimum artifacts.

Now about "1ms"....

One thing I'd like to add is there's two different types of milliseconds measurements -- 1ms GtG is not the same thing as 1ms MPRT. A monitor that actually does "1ms MPRT" is a more accurate measurement of motion blur, than a measurement of "1ms GtG". Also, common GtG numbers is the time from 10% transition to 90% transition. So 1ms GtG is often actually be far more than 1ms for full 0-100% transition.

GtG = Grey to Grey, pixel transitions.
MPRT = Moving Picture Response Time

MPRT is also more representative of the blur in motion blur pictures (aka "pursuit photos" of displays)

There's times where a display can do 1ms GtG(90%) but actually has 16.7ms MPRT. So yes, definitely, motion blur pictures (of all modes, strobed, non-strobed, overdrive, etc) is worth a thousand words more than just reading "1ms" in a spec sheet. (They often don't even specify if it's GtG or MPRT!)
