Low input lag fast response time budget IPS panel recommendations please

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I realise I am looking for the holy grail here but can anyone recommend a 23" or 24" low input lag and fast response time IPS monitor for FPS gaming for my son? I have not idea how to determine or measure input lag but am sure one of you guys has the knowledge! I have an AOC i2353 which I am happy with other than the pretty bad backlit bleed.

To determine how well a screen will do in games, two parameters are key:
  • Input lag
  • Response time

and the only way to find out exactly what they are is to read reviews from good sources i.e. tftcentral.

A good monitor for gaming, IPS, good brand is the Dell U2312HM. Something cheaper is the Viewsonic VX2336 S-LED.

Thanks hrockh, TFT certainly conduct very thorough reviews! After loads of research I decided on the Asus P238Q as it seems to be the panel most suited to FPS gaming if you want to use HDMI rather than dual DVI-D (so I am joining the backlight bleed lottery)!

As an owner of the U2312HM, I say buy a U2312HM. For the money, it is fantastic in every respect for lag and picture. Some of the lowest gaming lag around actually. And hidden bonuses. If you attach a simple VGA to Component cable, one without any active processing, you can hook up a game console or Blu-Ray player or something like that.

I have my HD DVR cable box hooked up that way to the VGA port, a Blu-Ray player hooked up with a HDMI to DVI cable, and the PC is using the Displayport. I wire all my sound to the Corsair SP2500 Speakers. Between the Dell Display and the Corsair Speakers, I can switch all three sources. I really can't complain!!!

Thought I'd chime in. It now looks like the best FPS/gaming IPS is probably (but not for certain) the Asus VG23AH. There isn't a thorough review out yet that has specific numbers for input lag and or response time, but early reports are it has very low input lag and is faster than any other IPS.

Yea but its too expensive for what it is. They should ditch some features like the "3d" support so they could lower the price.

ASUS VS239H-P. Don't know about input lag on the model, but its response time is perfectly fine for gaming.

http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/review-asus-vs239h-p-led-monitor-ips-goodness-you-and-me

If you do choose that one be sure to the the "P" model. The VS239H does not have the Trace Free overdrive which speeds up response time a lot.

I would've said that too, but I'm not sure if the VS239H-P exists in the UK, just the VS239H.

prad.de has a review of the VS239H:
http://www.prad.de/new/monitore/test/2012/test-asus-vs239h.html

I checked amazon.co.uk, ebuyer, etc. They all list VS239H and 14ms response time.
