hey dude, this is true… i feel input lag very sensitively. Also, the response time is not a true measurement of input lag. Here is a quote from one of the links in post 1: Though “response time” is measured in milliseconds, it isn’t a measurement of input lag. Response time refers to how long a pixel on the display takes to change colors; higher response times can be an indication that images will “ghost” or leave artifacts on the screen."
in a game that doesn’t utilize dial-up combos, this level of sensitivity is very relevant to high level play. When I read all the “whining” about input lag at evo, I couldn’t help but to have empathy. It is amazing to me how many players don’t even know about this issue. I personally know a greeeat player on the east coast who went to evo and confirmed that a lot of players talked about this. Also, a lot of players who were winning… so don’t mistake it as them justifying their loses.
Cicada also said" while it may be true, you still can’t please everyone.
the qualitative tests have shown that the monitors do not lag. If someone is used to playing on whatever 32-42-50" LCD they have at home [which may or may not lag – but i’m willing to bet on the fact that it does lag if it’s that large] – then coming to EVO and playing on a monitor that doesn’t lag is going to throw them off, wether it’s a CRT or not [and CRTs CAN lag]."*
I agree with this, it can work both ways. It is all about your muscle memory and timing you developed. if you want me to get into the neuro reasoning behind this… i will, I am a doctor with a focus on neurologic issues/learing/motor learning
anyways, im asking in a nutshell if a crt tv will ever have an equal in the lcd or led realm. If it does, I want to know what it is so I can fricken buy it.
