Samsung smart tv good for gaming?

Looking to replace my 40 inch samsung lcd with a 55 inch samsung smart tv. I think all this talk about input lag is tremendously overblown. Its a 120 hz refresh rate. Any opinions?

You should only be worried about input lag if you primarly play fps shooters like call of buties.

I have a 52 inch Samsung plasma 3D Smart TV. It is, by far, the best TV I have ever played on. Plasma TVs are amazing and I would much rather have one than a LED or LCD.

i play on a 55 inch samsung smart tv. Don't have an issue. That being said, as far as the tv apps, it really isn't anything your xbox can't do.

You don't need a "smart" tv necessarly. You pay a little more for the smart, all smart means is you get apps. It's cheaper to buy a bluray player with apps(Sony runs 50-$60) and a non smart tv. The upcharge on smart tvs is like $200 more for the same internals as the base version with 1080p, 120hz. "Smart" is a gimmick you pay extra for, don't believe me Google smart tv gimmick.
Xbox one, PS3, Wii
Play for the games not the evil corporation, they're all evil in the end.

CNET has a pretty good article about which TV series they think is currently best for gaming.
PS4~XB1~PS3~XB360~PS2~PS1~PS Vita~Wii~Wii U~DS~3DS~Super NES~N64~PC
Not everyone with a difference of opinion or that offers criticisms is a troll.

I don't know about the Samsung smart TVs but I have a Sony Google TV which is great for gaming. Probably the best picture quality I've ever seen on a 1080p TV

I just bought the samsung s7100 60 led smart tv with 240hz and it's awesome.
Always O.G.
