My guess (without looking) is that Mits was probably at least in the 80ms range. That will impact your K/D ratio. Getting that number down to the 20s is probably the direction you want to look. Displaylag . com will give you a quick and dirty idea of what a number of TVs run at. They also have good articles about lag, etc. I genereally use a PC monitor or Panny Plasma, so I am in the less than 20ish ms input lag. My brother who was an Halo competitive player, upon gaming on a 40ms knew something was off. He went back to a PC monitor. Granted that is annecdotal, but it is similar to a lot of stories.
There are a few over the horizon that possible could be great with lag. The AX900 if you are interested in 4K. The AX800 was 37ish ms. I am hoping that it can cut that a little with the upgrades, but that is just a hope right now. No real numbers to back that up.
The reference Vizio 4K sets mention game mode as well, with the ability to run at 120fps (havn't read much about the R series, since it is not out yet, so I am a little fuzzy on that). How the 120fps (if I am accurate on this) matters for console gaming is beyond me. However, i am not even sure if this means the vizio runs at 120hz, or if it is one of those tricks, and not running at true 120hz. Outside my wheelhouse on this topic:P
The L9400U Toshiba 4K set has been mentioned that the Japanese version of the "similar" set was at 10ms. that seems almost too good to be true, but that would be great if the US version of that set was 10ms. However, the US version appears to be a stripped down version of it. 3D removed and perhaps other stuff. Hope the hardware removed doesn't impact input lag....but no reviews are out as of this posting that I am aware.
If you are not interested in jumping into 4k, the Sony w850b might be the best bang for your gaming buck. I tried the sony 990a and the flashlighting was so bad (generally play in a darker room) I returned it. I am a little gun shy on pulling the trigger on the w850b, but from what I read it is not as pronounced a problem as it was on some 990a screens. But there is also the panel lottery on that, where many people didn't have the flashlighting i was seeing.
I have not pulled the trigger on a few tvs i wanted when they were above 30ms, but I don't like the loose feel of games when played on displays with higher ms. Each person is different on when they pick up on that lag though is my guess.
PS: Just saw you were looking for 3D as well. Neither the Vizio or the Toshiba will have 3D as I understand it. That leaves the panny Ax900 and the Sony for 3D. Both are going to be active I believe. Also OLED is an option, but you have IR or burn in as a possibility. I am going LCD this time around since I had a Panny and was always worried anytime I gamed for hours at a time. Never had burn in but it was always in the back of my mind. Don't want that worry again, even if it is maybe overblown on my part. I went OCD about running slides daily anytime there was static content on the screen :P I am going to follow the IR discussions as they develop around the OLED because the image is something to behold, and maybe one day I will go that route...who knows :P
