HP 25x Response time setting

HP Recommended
HP 25X
Other

I've just started using the HP 25x gaming monitor which states a response time of 1ms on the box however in the OSD menu under image settings there's a response time setting which has the options 1 (Default) 2 (Fast) 3, 4, 5 (Fastest) and I can't find any documentation from HP stating what this setting is and how it alters the response time. Please help me understand these settings so I know I'm getting a 1ms response time otherwise I will need to return the monitor. Thanks

Level 5 is 1 ms, but I get really bad ghosting.  I use level 4 and its good.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Response time is How fast your pixels can react to changing frames.

 

It means how quick the panel can switch from displaying black to white and back to black.

Usually the lower the better, as its part of the reason why a screen might be affected by ghosting, where you see a previous frame while a new frame is being displayed.

 

Anything below 5ms is usually fine, unless you want to lower input lag (competitive/PvP gaming.).

 

I hope that helps.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I know what response time is / does however I'm trying to determine what the settings I mentioned relate to in response time.

I'm after a 1ms response time.

 

Can you provide information on the response time settings and what each number relates to in response time?

Don't worry about response times, 1ms vs. 5ms isn't a big difference and regardless there is no standardized way of measuring response times.

 

I hope that helps.

I've ended up using 120hz instead of Freesync on Xbox and it's allowed me to use level 5. I feel it performs much better and the display is very clear.

I'll give level 4 a go with Freesync back on and see it it works just as good.

 

Thanks

In order to get my Xbox to show the refresh rate option I had to change the output to HDMI instead of auto-detect as even though the HP 25x markets as 144hz capable it wants to force everything to 60hz and the Xbox is picking this up.

 

The setting I changes was under video fidelity & overscan then set Display to HDMI. Once you go back to display options you should now see a refresh rate dropdown and it can be changed to 120hz.

 

Is that what you're after?
