This is a picture from the iphone (crappy yes). From what I can tell the two numbers:
Connection - S-Video
EDIT: I DELETED THIS PHOTO BECAUSE IT WAS A BIT TOO BLURRY.
One last post on this and then I'll leave it alone because it doesn't really effect me for what I want the TV for.
I used a better camera. I got results that varied. I had times that had 0 lag, 10ms lag, and 20ms lag (no 30 as I originally mentioned with my crappy iphone camera).
The 0,10,20ms lags were pretty equal in the number of how often they showed up. Probably dependent on processes running, etc.
A CRT should have no discernible lag, but the source (my computer) produced a little at times. . . .
Since it doesn't pertain to this specific TV in the thread, I won't post the pics, just my observations. It will vary.
At the end it's hard to run this test in a 'vacuum'. The TV obviously has processing - and a lot of it - because that is what it is designed to do.
It might be too much for some gamers, perfect for others, and for non gamers the TV probably is more than fine. At the end it's up to you just use the info that is in this thread and other places to make your own decision.
