Does anyone have updated numbers for input lag on the H8550 with the latest firmware? On PC / Game Mode?
I would really like this flat, 4k Samsung over the 1080 curved H8000, as I don't like its curve and I think it is overpriced for what it is these days. However, I do game and can't use a TV that has really bad input lag like this one was previously reported to exhibit. The H8000 has the local dimming I want and has good enough numbers there. 4k for me is just gravy from where I sit, but if I'm paying this much for a flagship unit, might as well future proof for the extra couple hundred bucks. I keep a TV a very long time usually.
I just read in the H8000 forum that someone tested with the latest firmware on that unit (version 1300 I think), and they got a good sub-40ms measurement (around 38ms). If the H8550 is showing a lot better numbers with the latest update, I'd love to buy it instead of the H8000.
Let me know who's got some data! I'm hopeful to buy soon for a recently remodeled room. 65" size if that matters at all. Thanks for any insight.
