I am looking for the best television to play my PlayStation®3 console on. I am a competitive "gamer", and I need a TV that has low input lag (sub 1 frame, <16ms). But I also want a TV that also has high crisp picture quality and deep colors.

All of my PS3 games are natively rendered at 720p:

Resident Evil: Revelations
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Special Edition
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Demon's Souls
Dark Souls
Sonic Unleashed
Sonic Generations
Soul Calibur IV
Soul Calibur V

Does input lag matter for any of these games?

I also use my PS3 for watching 1080p Bluray movies.

Hey apoklyps3: Sorry for the delay, I finally got to upload the pictures for the lag test. Here you go : Lagtest

My previous post as a reference:

Test setup:
Macbook -> Displayport to HDMI adapter -> Philips HDMI cable -> 47 LM7600

We used this website for digital clock

Based on Phantastica's experiment, the camera was set to 1/60 shutter and we took pictures and saw the difference in the displayed time on macbook and on the TV

The TV already had the HDMI4 input changed to "PC" and Audio and Video mode to "Game" and we got 0ms lag
1: Label : PC / Picture Mode : Game / Audio Mode : Game = 0ms
2: Label : PC / Picture Mode : Standard / Audio Mode : Game = 33ms
3: Label : PC / Picture Mode : Cinema / Audio Mode : Game = 0ms
4: Label : PC / Picture Mode : Game / Audio Mode : Game = 0ms (Repeat of 1)
5: Label : GAME / Picture Mode : Game / Audio Mode : Game = 33ms
6: Label : AV RECEIVER / Picture Mode : Game / Audio Mode : Game = 34ms
7: Label : PC / Picture Mode : Game / Audio Mode : Game = 0ms (Repeat of 1)

We don't know if this is the absolute best way to measure lag. But, we notice no lag while playing games online ... same with the LM7600 I have. I think LG has come through in a big way fixing lag issues. Since LG marketed dual-play for this years models, I think it forced them to fix the gaming lag issues first

If you want to see the pictures taken during the test, let me know. I can ask my buddy to send them to me.

I own this tv and use it for online gaming with my ps3. Hope this helps.
