Are response time and input lag the same thing?

Apparently not.

That's what I thought.

Response time is still important though. Unless you don't mind ridiculous ghosting.

Response time and input lag are separate things, but they stack with regards to <input> -> <clean frame representation of action>. With strobed monitors, you have to consider input lag, then the time for the frame to swap from the last one, and then the time until strobe (which means the best monitors are the ones that are timed to strobe immediately after a clean frame has been achieved.

Double-buffered Vsync is only 16ms on a 60hz monitor and to anyone who's played a shooter competitively it's pretty bad. Competitive gamers have been running ridiculous framerates for years to cut off extra time (240fps = frame is only 4.17ms old maximum at refresh; 60fps = frame can be up to 16.67ms old at refresh).

When MGS3 switched to 30fps from 60fps I was more than a little irritated by the increased delay.
The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Alot of HDTVs have a gaming mode that needs to be enabled to get rid of input lag.

There should be no lag at all when gaming on a TV, hell I rarely game on my Monitor unless I'm just trying to do something quick.

If you're pushing buttons or using a mouse/kb and you notice a lag from pressing a button and seeing action on the TV, you're definitely doing something wrong and it's probably not the TV...
