I don't need 3D, 4K, or "Smart" features since I have Roku for the later. This is a kid's Game Room and primarily will be for gaming. Old TV is a hand-me-down 55" 720P Sony protection style LCD and the bulb is going for the second time in its life (about 10 years old). I've been trying to decide between 60Hz budget sets, or because it primarily for gaming, go up one notch to 120Hz (based on some of what I have read), but also need to consider input lag. My current main TV downstairs is 3 year old LG 55" LCD, and its lag is terrible. It has a gaming mode, but with that on, it makes the picture look like crap and washed out. I'm sure TVs are better today so wanted to hear suggestions. I have a good, HDMI switch, so although I would prefer a model with 3-4 inputs, I can live with 2. Models I am considering so far based on my limited knowledge are LG 55LB5550 (60Hz) and LG 55LB5900 (120Hz). I have little knowledge of other brands other than Vizio have used in past on a plasma (long time ago) and Sony and Samsung are priced a lot higher.
