Currently I have a 5m/s monitor that I'm very happy with, and now I'm trying to find a second within the same price range (around €120), however they don't sell the one I have anymore (Philips 221V, out of stock everywhere) so I'm forced to looks elsewhere.
I was just wondering if the difference between 5m/s and 14m/s would be visible or measurable in any way during high FPS gaming? I've heard that it can cause ghosting, mouse trails and blurring, but I'm not entirely sure what those terms mean in this context, or if it would even be noticeable. I've done a lot of Googling and I've heard a lot of conflicting information.
Some say it's a meaningless number that doesn't affect visual performance, others say that the ghosting and input lag is intolerable. It seems very ambiguous so I'd like to get some more information before spending any money.
I'm currently considering a 14m/s Samsung monitor because it has a HDMI port while no other monitors in it's price range that I can find do.
It would irritate me immensely if I bought this monitor and it was visibly slower than the monitor next to it on my desk.
While we're on the subject, do any of you gentlemen have experience with AOC monitors? They're also very cheap but I've never head of their company before now.
