I have the Samsung S23A950 and I get next to no noticeable input lag.
I've tried other monitors, side-by-side including my CrossOver 27Q LED and there is almost no difference to it.
persia000123, I have the Samsung S23A950 which uses the same panel as the S23A700D and it has the best image quality out of all TN LCD monitors. The input lag is only about 12-13ms and is virtually unnoticeable in real life performance. The motion performance is extremely smooth when playing games like Battlefield 3. I personally use this monitor for gaming.
The Asus VG248QE has some issues with color reproduction. You will notice a pink or green tinge. I don't recommend it unless you somehow have super powers that allows you detect slightly lower input lag.
Except.. It is quite noticeable coming from a CRT or LCD with next to no latency. How certain people may perceive things differently will relate to other hardware such as polled devices, specifically mice and keyboards where you can inverse the effect by compensating rate of update. Negatively, everything is less smooth on that end.
In a well optimized situation where everything is running fastest (ex. rawinput, 1000hz usb, disabled bios/graphical settings etc...) high hz LCD's make it easier to detect subtle change. That mere avg. 12~13ms (1000/13= 76 frames) becomes quite apparent.
Funny thing is.. there is general delay from hardware regardless. More and more noticeable the faster the image is reset. In which case, a lower refresh setting can feel somewhat superior in those optimized situations.
tl;dr It's okay if you can't perceive a difference, but many people can. Super powers need not apply.
Edit: On subject of the Asus VG248, I actually enjoy gaming on it a heck of a lot better than the 700D, which has been sitting in a corner till I figure out what I want to do with it.
Input latency is far from slightly. Average of 833-1000 via Asus vs 76-83 frames via samsung. That's a substantial amount.Edited by Skylit - 6/14/13 at 3:56pm
