The 12~13ms input lag on the Samsung S23A700D or any other Samsung 120Hz monitors for that matter is not noticeable.

Trust me on this. I own a LG IPS236V-PN which has 0.9ms input lag, and I see no difference when comparing it with my Samsung S23A950 (all things being equal).

Now if I set my Samsung S23A950 at 120Hz, then it completely destroys the LG IPS236V-PN in terms of responsiveness when gaming (especially FPS games). The Samsung 120Hz monitors are excellent and offer the best color quality out of all 120Hz TN monitors.

Hi,
I've been in the process of designing my dream pc as well for over a month, and the most complicated part has been the monitor. I'm almost certain I want the 700D, but that 12-13ms input lag is driving crazy. I don't like the explanation that if I've only had worst monitors before, then I won't notice the lag, because that isn't the point. I'm building my dream computer and I want it to be perfect.
I like playing immersive, non-competitive games, but I also like past-paced competitive games such as CS. The BenQ's bad color quality when compared to the 700d, and this is why I've been researching everywhere to find their opinions on the 11ms.
I really can't grasp the importance of 8ms difference in a competitive environment. Is it high enough to make a difference, say, when spotting an enemy in cs and clicking the button first? I took a reaction rate test, and I scored 250ishms and then around 220ish after getting the hang of it (Using a horrible monitor that can't even run 480p videos properly). If the average for a person using a gaming monitor is ~200ms, that doesn't mean 8ms is nothing, as people are going to be varying at around 180-240 (I'm just making up numbers which may be off, but I think my reasoning would still be correct). If the interquartile reaction time is 60ms, then 8 seems like it would have an impact. Maybe everything I just said is based on something I don't understand and I'm completely wrong and there really is no difference, or maybe a 13% disadvantage in pure reaction time makes no difference when taking into account all the other factors, but I really need someone that plays those quick reaction fps's to tell me that as I can't confidently order the monitor otherwise.
