1ms vs 5ms monitor
« on: 05:42 AM - 04/07/18 »
Does this affect the performance of the XIM4? My friend has 1ms and I got 5ms... I think for the total feeling it does make a difference as far I tried on his monitor.

I mostly play Battlefield 1. I am planning to buy 1ms if it really does.

for me it did check database of displaylag.com there are different 1ms monitors with different input lag timing so ms is not the only factor that determines input lag
Current xim4 Setup:
BenQ XL2411
BenQ RL2455
Owned over 300 mice.
currently using Cougar 300M @ 400dpi
Keyboard: g13 i will never go back to keyboard on xim4. With Analog movement you can controll the accel/deaccel of lookmechanics even obsiv prefers it :P.
Sound: Beyerdynamic MMX 300 with dss2.

Your monitor does not affect your XIM in any way.

The difference between 1ms and 5 is negligible. Like camera sensor pixel numbers itís just marketing speil. Buying a new monitor just to improve the response rate by such a minscule amount would be a bad buying decision.
