Here's a stack-overflow that answers your question http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17384218/jquery-input-event

i read this as well: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15727324/for-a-javascript-autocomplete-search-box-must-we-use-the-input-event-handler

however that one talks about javascript and not jquery

but essentially the 'input' listener replaces keydown/keyup/keypress/change? its like the ultimate input field listener?

That's the gist I got from reading it, does that not match your experience with it? Also the stackover-flow i linked is talking about the jQuery event input, which is what you're asking about right?

yea it does. i just wanted to make sure that it can be used in all cases dealing with some sort of change in an input tag whether it be a range/text/etc
