#1. So much for SAMSUNG being the "official" TV brand of the Xbox 360, chosen by Microsoft.

#2. Please research, Samsung S panels C panels, and A panels. You never know what you are buying and unles syou get an S panel made by Samsung gaming is going to have bad input lag because they are MVA Panels

#3. Try checking which Model Number your TV starts with its on the side or back of the unit.

After owning 2 Samsung HDTV's and doing alot of research I went with a Panasonic TC-L32S1

WHY? because

#1. Its uses a 10-bit (not 8-bit) IPS Alpha panel also know as IPS Pro.

#2. These IPS panels In Plane Switching are hands down the best for Gaming, No Input Lag its been tested

#3. IPS panels are what high end photographers and digital artists use in hollywood and for graphics work.
Apple also uses IPS panels for its Cinema Displays and its new iPad

#4. Amazingly clear, view angles

#5. Consumer Reports ranked it #3, among 32" LCD's

#6. IPS Alpha panels handle motion better than any other type of LCD panel, so no blurry motion on sports etc.

#7. I tried Game Mode on several types of LCD's and it does not help much. Its the TYPE of panel that makes all the difference.

Look on YouTube, for Samsung trailing, ghosting, or Overdrive, or smear. you will see.

There are many different Flavors of LCD panel types

of all IPS is the best for Gaming period.

If you are MLG Sponsored like me you need a proper Gaming equipment.

IPS is great and all, but who plays games from such a wide angle? Most people would never have any issue with a non-IPS display for TV or gaming. People that complain about viewing angles, just complain to complain. In reality, most people watch TV from a very small angle in their living rooms, and for PC gaming, well the monitor is right in front of you.

Good point and true but forget about view angles, Thats just an added benefit. The real importance is zero Input lag. Unlike other types or flavors of LCD panels where you are 2-3 or 3-4 frames behind the action. Its just not acceptable.
