So on BenQ’s websight, they say that the monitors have “low” input lag.
My question is really simple: instead of “low” input lag, how about “no” input lag. Zip zilch nada. Instant. Does such an HD monitor exist?
Also keep in mind it doesn’t have to be LCD or LED or whatever, plasma or even CRT is fine, I just want the fastest possible, no lag solution, like with old 480P monitors/TV’s that didn’t lag like back in the day.
I’ve played on BenQ’s over HDMI and the input lag was virtually non-existent with 3rd Strike on an Xbox 360.
Input is another thing. I have a Samsung LED 55", and through VGA on my old Xbox 360 there is zero lag. None. As good as the BenQ over HDMI, but of course with HDMI the 360 and any other console has noticeable and annoying lag.
Now what about PC? Don’t PC’s still use VGA as the normal output and wouldn’t this mean lag free over PC and VGA? Or do PC’s/graphics cards of today no longer support SVGA and instead forced to use HDMI? What then about lag?
What about PC monitors? Do those lag? I mean surely not that would be ridiculous to have mouse lag on a PC thus unacceptable? See I don’t know because my old PC still uses VGA.
I’ve heard about image degradation over VGA, but to me it makes zero sense, because my PC, which IIRC is an old Core 2 Duo machine, the monitor however is 1080P as is the output via VGA and there’s obviously no loss in image quality, so why would a console be any different?
My final question. I recently purchased an HDMI to VGA cord. It’s gold plated, which I’m pretty sure doesn’t make a difference but it was only 7$. It’s also 6ft long. Did I make a mistake getting such a long cable? Will that effect anything? My main question though, is… Well this cord is simply a cord, with a female HDMI and a male VGA. No box, just plugs. How is this possible? Does the TV or game system convert the signal? I’ve heard this lags. I guess I’ll know in 2 days when it arrives, but anyways, if anyone can answer some of or all of these questions it would be greatly appreciated.
All input is welcome because I know often times some people have conflicting information and that is ok, please feel free to say what you think even if your view is “controversial” or whatever, often times the popular sentiment is wrong.
