Microcenter now carrying the 27" 2560x1440 Korean IPS monitors - Page 96

I haven't tested it personally, but Grimster identified a specific comparison to the Asus a few messages above. In the tests that I've seen performed, you have two monitors side by side fed by the same DVI signal, and you film a sequential frame count with a high speed 1/1000th camera. You can clearly measure the input lag by frame count in that case. I don't know what procedure Grimster followed in his test, he'll have to address it himself. =)

The root of my comment was that someone did claim to have tested the input lag vs. a known entity (the 144 Hz Asus monitor is known to have extremely low lag).

Ok. I did misunderstand his position, because the input lag of the Asus 144hz has little to do with the input lag of the Auria... and since testing the Asus versus the Auria directly is a terrible way to test input lag, it never even crossed my mind that he was referring to that.

In post #142 I did essentially that with the HP zr2740w, both connected via DisplayPort. Ran on-screen stopwatch, took photos - if there was more lag introduced by the Auria they would have displayed different times in the photos. They came out exactly the same. I know it doesn't show absolute lag, but if the HP is assumed to be fairly lag-free due to not having a scaler, doesn't it show that the Auria is equivalent, at least running at native resolution, ?

At least you're doing equal resolution comparisons there. Still inaccurate, but more accurate than doing a comparison vs a monitor that runs at different refresh rates and different resolutions.

Yes but thats not input lag, that is pixel response time. Input lag is the time it takes the pixels to begin to change after you move your mouse or feed other input to the computer.

Again, care to link the tests you were talking about?

Why thank you, you've been very helpful.

Ok. That doesn't really tell us anything about the input lag. Care to give some more details on the setup as you performed it?

Just putting it out there. Be nice if people with time can run the right tests.

Can I repair this polarizer or do I go play dumb at microcenter?
