Of course there's some of caveats: it's a curved screen, which is a turn-off for a lot of people, even though the curve is pretty subtle in-person. Off-angle viewing isn't the best. The biggest issue is the backlighting is fairly uneven, mostly noticeable in a dark room during credits or black screens with title cards or logos, e.g. the Playstation logo when turning the PS4 on.

But IMO after tweaking it can achieve a good picture, even with backlight down low - nice colors and good black levels. And game mode is pretty much lag-free. Unfortunately, this model is rare unicorn when it comes to finding it in a store, so it's hard to see one for yourself to decide if any of the issues bother you or not.
I hadn't come across that set yet. Assuming the curve is similar to the Samsung H8000, I like it. Viewing angle isn't an issue as I'm the only person using. The 18ms is in Game mode correct? I'll check out the offical S990 thread so I don't go too far off topic here. Thanks for the recommendation!

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.

Hi - does input lag typically remain constant for a specific model despite changes in size? For example the samsung H7150 55" vs 65" would they both have an input lag of 40ms?

Thanks

Sometimes yes, sometime no.

For example, the Sammy F7500 60" model has input lag of 43ms in PC mode, but the 55" version of the same model has 51ms in PC mode.

Sony KDL-55W700B (Best Buy model) input lag results

I just tested the 55" 700B with my Leo Bodnar input lag tester (1080P signal) today. This set is the KDL-55W800B sans 3D. The Sony rep in my local Best Buy confirmed that Sony is testing the TV in BB stores to see how sales compare to those with 3D It had very similar results to the 800B model.

Here are the results:

Top bar: 20.1 ms
Middle bar: 23.3 ms
Bottom bar: 26.2

Average: 23.2 ms

I did not end up purchasing it as the results are still slightly high for my tastes. I wish more of the 2014 sets had 16-17 ms of input lag like last years 802A and 900A. The only Sony model that comes close this year is the W950B (17 ms) but it has had poor reviews due to bad black levels and inaccurate colors.

Anything above 16ms is still 2 frames in a 60fps game, so 16 or 22ms is the same for all practical purposes. Around 20ms is still competing with the best gaming monitors if you measure the absolute input lag. See http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...r,3897-10.html and the absolute input lag measurement.
