Hi, have a few years old 42" Phillips and looking to upgrade in size for my new Xbox One. Also on a budget and not a videophile, and I get an employee discount at target. Long story short the only TV's in my crosshairs then are vizio, they are cheap, available at target, and seem to be good quality for me a non-videophile.
The two models I'm looking at at Target are E-550i-B2 which is 679, or the E600i-B3 which is 849. HDTV test has lag for the E-550i, 27 ms in game mode which is good...
I cant find a lag reading on the 600i-B3 anywhere. Can I assume it's similar since it's sort of in the same model line?
I know the displag site guy seems to post here, I'd love to see more lag tests of vizio's and other low price brands. It seems as in many fields the experts only gravitate to the top notch/expensive stuff (Samsung, LG, Sony, Sharp, etc). It seems like that site no longer even tests vizios.
Also, I read some posts by waveyboy that game mode on vizio's darkens the picture. Is this a big problem? Does it apply to all brands? He mentioned a workaround too, what was that?
any other inexpensive 55"+ lCd's known to have low lag?
Thx for any help.
