i dont get what this input lag business is about, ive never experienced anything like this. samsung tvs are the best in the biz go for it. just 4 days ago i got the f8000 60inch and the picture is epiccccc


i'd argue that sony's tvs are directly comparable to samsung's

I have a samsung 51" plasma and it is awesome!!! it's a smart tv and can do 3D as well. I play my xbox one on it everyday and the screen is spectacular. make sure you get a plasma and not the lcd though, samsung has the best plamas cause of the contrast ratio, the shadows are dark and deep and look realistic.

contrast ratio and darkness levels on new leds are comparable to plasmas, with a longer life span

The 6300 series is in the top 10 for input lag, at least for 2013 of course that series has been replaced by the 6350 series.

The 120hz means nothing, you'll run it on game mode which disables the software that doubles the frames. The TVs, all TVs can only handle 60hz signals and what it does is, doubles the frames automatically. Which creates input lag from hell, so you'll have to play in game mode which = 60hz

Vizio offers a 42 inch smart LED for $450 at Amazon. That's what I'm going to order in a few weeks.

Yep, they are. Anything, especially higher end, from Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, or even Vizio nowadays will be great.

Samsungs usually have a "Game Mode" option.

Do you play twitch games? You would be more aware of input lag if you do. I've done tests with my TVS, and my gaming monitor beats my TV by far. My Gaming monitor is set as the secondary monitor in a clone setup, and it's running through a receiver. That means, it's not the primary monitor, it's the one that is copying the primary. Plus, it's going through a receiver. Even with those two things to introduce added latency, this monitor is about 10ms faster than my TV. Head to head it would be more like 40 to 60ms faster.

When people as what a good TV is for gaming, they usually mean what TV has the lowest input lag. Game mode helps, but the fact is any LCD/LED or Plasma TV is going to have more input lag than a monitor.

Really, when buying a tv for gaming

its usually not how many features the tv has, its how many of the features you can turn off thats more important.

You want to minimize the input lag as much as possible for gaming.

But yeah, Samsung tvs are usually pretty good about input lag and can usually turn off those features to minimize input lag
