I'm in the market to replace my current TV (Sam LNT4661F) with a new one. I'm interested in either getting a Samsung LN52A650 or a Sony KDLW4100 both of which have 120hz refresh on it.

I am using my current one mostly for gaming, so what I need to know is; whether or not, will the 120hz feature introduce lag? I play pretty seriously so even small amounts of lag can add up since I have everything running through a reciever too.

I'm sure most of you are well aware that most TV's these days (samsung, toshiba and sony to name a few) have a gaming mode built in that is designed to cut out alot of the processing of the picture.

If it does give lag and somebody has personal experiance with these new TV's, is it noticeable? Also, are you able to have 120hz enabled when gaming mode is on?

I have the same dilemma going on.

I had my heart set on the Samsung 52" 7 series, and I've been saving up for almost a year now to buy it on the day after thanksgiving.

but then I read that post about someone saying they returned the 750 for the 52" Sony KDL-W4100 and the W4100 just whipped the floor with the sammy.

now I don't know which one to get.....

It would be nice if there was something out there that could measure TV lag under various circumstances.

Plus it would be nice to know so you could get exact compensation in games that have that feature. I think my RockBand setting could use some tweaking. I guess the new guitar they have can help with that.

120Hz represent the refresh rate of the TV,,,

They take it from PC gamers... It will improve your gaming...

Yeah I would think there would be some extra processing lag there, but what do I know?

I have a 52" Sony KDL-W4100 and I was getting lag but you can either A) turn on game mode on the HDMI channels you are gaming on or B) turn of the motion enhancer on the HDMI channels you are gaming on. Do either of those things removes the lag. Can't say on a Samsung though.
