Input lag is of great importance to me. Anyone have this monitor? Any ghosting? Hoping to acquire.

If the advertised speeds are right, you should have no real issue with Input lag.

That being said, if it is a huge deal... you should pick-up his big brother: http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-XL2420TE-Performance-24-Inch-Professional/dp/B00D7IG556/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387555354&sr=8-1&keywords=BenQ+120hz

I got one and... while the colors aren't as amazing as I would like for a $300 monitor, it's pretty amazingly awesome for gaming.

While the xl2420 does have better specs overall, based on my research the rl2450 has less input lag, and that is my highest priority. Something to consider though, thanks.

Curious what research shows that?

Not saying it's not possible, but I am admittedly skeptical..

Yeah, I just did some more research (Cause I did a crap ton when I bought that thing haha) And I'm really not finding a single thing that says the rl2450 has less input lag.

No biggie though, just a suggestion. Everything i'm reading and seeing about the rl2450ht says it's very good in response times. Not as good as the XL2420, but still very very good.

Displaylag.com has the stats for both. I also found a review on us.hardware.info that also pointed out the difference.

Response time is different from input lag too. The response time may be better on the xl2420.

Displaylag.com says both are 10ms. Other sites test the 2450 at 4.5ms...so conflicting info it seems.

Hmm, I know you responded but, neither of those sites list the 2450ht as having better input lag.

Displaylag has both at 10ms

us.hardware.info has no info on the 2450ht

All I can say is from actually using the 2420 is that it's easily the fastest monitor i've used and have experienced zero issues from input lag. Given the specs of the two monitors, and the results found, I just don't really see anything that agrees with what you said.

None the less, it doesn't really matter at all. :) Sounds like you've made up your mind on the 2450, and I think it'll be perfect for your needs as well. So buy that sucker up and enjoy it.

This review explicitly states the rl2450 has less input lag than the xl2420.
