I think they're talking about later HDTV CRTs which probably have a lot of digital processing too. An analog CRT monitor won't have lag, due to the nature of its design. The input signal basically controls the scanning of the CRT tube.

At the moment im playing games on my Sony Rear proj 60A3000.I just want a TV to play games on.After 2 years of reading these forums im pretty much set on getting the Sony 46Z4100.I dont need a TV with mindblowing blowing blacks when 90% of the games i plan on playing have nice big explosions going off every 2 secs.

I have the same 60" SXRD that you mention. In you research, do you think you will be getting that much of an improvement for your games with a LCD Sony?

I am also in the market and been doing some research and not sure what to get. I was leaning towards the XBR6, originally the XBR8, but not sure what to really do. I been wondering if the jump will be that much. I know a friend that games on a 20" Samsung Monitor and it looks really nice, but I am use to the big screens and the smallest I will even consider is a 52".

Yeah, I'm leaning towards Sony's 4100 models - either that or a Plasma. I'm afraid to bite on a Plasma because I tend to forget to turn off the PS3, and I know that I'll come back two hours later and see Sony's XMB menu burned into my screen.

I want to check that out. Keep us posted.

Thanks all for your help, guys! If you could suggest some HDTVs, feel free to.

The reason i want a LCD is that the TV im currently using is more for the family and i want something off to the side for my self.While i love playing Gears 2 at 60" on the thing from 10 feat away were the new TV will be only be 4 feet away so no reason to go beyond 46".From what ive read about the XBR6 its not worth the $500 dollar jump in price Vs the Z to me for what my uses will be.The XBR8 is more for the videophile thats willing to pay for the best TV you can get period.One big reason i like sony stuff is there extended warrantys are dirt cheap.Got the 5 year plan on my 60" for like 250 bucks.I wanna pull the trigger so badly but im gonna wait another week and look into a few more models.

As far as using a "computer monitor" for gaming i wouldnt recommend it for anyone unless your like living in a college dorm room.It sounds great in theory but in practice if you have the option of siting on your nice cumfy couch veging out playing games or siting up right in a desk chair banging your fingers on your desk every now in then it gets old fast.The only upside comes When your playing like COD4 and can pick people off so lop sidley most think your hacking.If your still intested in a good multi-purpose monitor thow get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001275Watched someone playing ratchet and clank on that thing and it shits all over my poor 24" westy i used for gaming before i picked up my SXRD.

If you are above 5ms lag time you are going to see it (or most of you will).

I played Rockband on a friends A650 and noticed the lag right away. He did not though. I think for games like Rockband you can still be good because you keep in time with the audio rather than the video. At least the good players.

I looked at the Sony extended warranties - don't you have to ship the set back to them?

On sonys web site it clearly lists "no out of pocket shipping cost" so nope.

But it's not in-home, right? The service plan I bought from Magnolia is a bit more expensive, but they'll come get it if they have to. And I assume I'll get it fixed quicker. (I'll have to ask.)

So what about Panasonic? I know someone already mentioned them earlier this thread, but what's your input on Pannys. I have a 30" Viera and it has only 13ms of lag (almost 1 frame I think).
