Gaming? Input Lag
« on: June 18, 2019, 07:56:41 pm »

The Nixeus has high input lag (around 27ms if measured with the Leo Bodnar device) for a modern (2019) 1440p monitor since most have <3ms delays, however, 27ms is acceptable for casual gaming, as well as a decent result in the TV realm since the fastest TV's have 10-30ms delays. 

I tested the Planar and measured a 20ms delay with the Leo Bodnar device while Tom's Hardware, using their own testing methodology, measured 88ms for the Nixeus and 81ms for the Planar, which is a 7ms difference, hence my 27ms estimation for the Nixeus. 

Both monitors have good overdrive or pixel response time performance for 60hz non-TN panels, and the Planar's pixel response time settings are controlled by the Over Drive settings which is preset to 60 and consists of six settings, those being 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100. The default setting (60) causes a bit of overshoot while 20 is completely overshoot free, and 40 offers a nice balance between speed and overshoot with the panel I tested.
