Some people are obsessed with speed, speed of connection, refresh rates etc.

Fair enough too if your strategy depends on it. Although I rather suspect for some (not all) that think they need speed and low latency etc they don't.

Anyone out there able to react in under 200ms? Let's see.

(But hangon, we will all have different line speeds and latency to this test, unless you all come around to my house to sit it).

So this is just a bit of fun, just like Freddy sang, "nothing really matters".

Averaged 395ms, uses javascript on the client side so it is possible to compare.

I've done the test a few times now - after two coffees. Didn't really make any difference.

My lowest reaction is 207 - can't crack the 200. I'm averaging 267.

Well that's encouraging, I thought the years (52) had slowed me down.

3 gos....
avg best
252 232
256 223
247 218

...and that was after a couple of nice relaxing smokes :mrgreen:

I think there would be different results if it took 1 or 2 mins to go green, 5 seconds of focus is doable. Was fun, thanks gazuty.

Tried on two computers - laptop with slow cpu (pentium) about 260 ms average from many runs and fast cpu computer (core I5) with average 210 ms (several times below 200ms) so sorry to say but the results are heavily computer dependent and thus uncomparable...
