Looking for a specific monitor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a monitor with:

HDMI and Displayport
27"
No noticeable input lag
Under 400 dollars

I'm looking at monitors but very little information can be found on input lag. I've been plagued with input lag in the past. Is there a certain kind of monitor that's best? Any help would be great:thumb:

Look for ones with good response time. What have you been using? I'm on a monitor from like 2003 and have no noticeable input lag.

Well hello! i think i know the perfect monitor for you! lol biggrin.gif

For gaming and graphic design i have found great luck with this ASUS monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236103

It has always had amazing quality and no lag that i can think of. Another one to look at would be this other ASUS one. It looks pretty stout and should have even less lag with 1ms GTG biggrin.gif

I know from past experience input lag and response time are not the same. My TV has 3ms response time with 3 frames of input lag...

Response time is the amount of time a display takes to react to an input; it is in every way the same as the display's input lag. And you can't quantify a monitor's response time with frames, that would imply that regardless of framerate, or even a static image, the monitor would always be 3 frames behind what should be onscreen. To me it sounds like the problem of your input lag lies somewhere between your mouse and your graphics adapter.

And you have a pretty nice TV if it has a true 3ms response time.

Oh and I completely agree with Ddreder about the Asus monitor suggestions.


Edit: My mistake, learn something new every day. Input lag is separate from response time measured again in milliseconds; although I still see no way to accurately quantify it using frames.

There are approx. 16.667 milliseconds per frame (in standard 60Hz). So something with like 4ms would have an input lag of around 1/4 a frame.
