Response time would not be an issue if cursor position were a closed
loop and the monitor were somehow telling the cpu where the cursor was.
Lets say you move your mouse at a rate that traverses the screen
corner-to-corner in a 1/2 second ( thats pretty slow ). My current monitor
is a 21". Thats moving at .0105"/ms. A 4ms response time gives a possible
error of .042", 25ms possible of .2625". If you are zinging the cursor back
and forth across the screen mashing buttons, with hardly a pause inbetween
( something SW likes to have you do ), that translates into missed mouse
clicks. Where you thought the cursor was when you clicked, is not the same
as where the CPU thinks it is. Perhaps you don't notice the delay, I
The other specs you mention are absolutely important. But those are
specs that are obvious. I only mention response time because its not a spec
that everyone would think to consider. Its not something you notice on the
showroom floor. The higher response times ( within reason ) would not
normally effect the average user.
