Haven't tested out anything new yet. But you can count the UT50 and ST50 out, because you're not
going to get anything lower than 2 frames with either set. I'm going by my X5, and that's how well the UT50 and ST50
'might' beable to perform on 'component'. even then, it's 2+frames and for me it breaks the experience. I tried and tried to adjust,
but shifting back to my trustt old CRT yielded much better results and i just couldn't bare playing on the X5 any longer
as i was basically getting a complete faulty and broken impression on how the games truly perform in comparison.
1 frame is completely fine though of course. I just wish i could test out last years S30! But there's no
way I can. All i can do is order a 50" online in either good condition or refurbished for $600-$700 and take that little gamble and see how it fairs once it arrives. XP
The UT50 is a complete last resort...but i KNOW i won't be happy with the input lag performance.. The E550?
Ya, i'm not too thrilled with these dimmer samsung plasma's, and i have a strong feeling it' also going to be pushing
2 or more frames without doing that HDMI 'PC labeling' trick, which i wont be doing anyways since it locks out picture controls.
In terms of lag, the S30/ST30 has been compared to being as great as the LG LD450 LCD, which i've also owned before the LK450. The LK450 does 1 frame via component,
as does the LD450, but i never tried HDMI on the LD450, but on the 'LK450' theres a significant gain in laggyness. ;o I'm fully aware of what 1 frame feels like, and it's pure gaming bliss baby B-)
It's not quite perfect, but with digital controls i doubt you'd really beable to tellthe difference. motion controls however there's a 'bit' of a difference, but it still
people are saying "16-32ms" for the S30/ST30. I just need a confirmation if the input lag is lower than the UT50/ST50 when using both Component and HDMI...If so,
than the UT50 is definitly not happening. But ya...it' a shame this entire input lag ordeal exsists. I wish a device would rear it's head or some type of newer tech in future displays
that would get rid of it all together, because as is it's just uneccaptable putting up with it just to get all of these other shnazzy PQ improvements and
a big screen. 'Gameplay' is the most important thing...Videogames don't feel intuitive on my X5(2 frames) as they do on my CRT or LK450....which is long gone now
since i sold it. XP
