Hey guys,
Real quick question.

I know the Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST60 is getting across the board spectacular reviews but the one area that is still concerning me is the high input lag.
I play a lot of online games and I am worried it would be a large hinderance.

The TC-P50S60 seems to still have great visuals but with significantly less input lag.
Do you guys think the difference in input lag is worth it? Or are the visuals such a leap with the ST60 that I would be dumb to get the S60?

I am a gamer and own the ST60. I myself, as well as many others on the ST60 thread, do not have any issues gaming on the ST60. A few people play platform games or still use older consoles, and notice a bit of delay. If you're a pro Street Fighter 2 player and count frames of animation, this TV might not be for you. But overall it doesn't seem to be an issue for most people.

If you play online, there are a lot of things you can do to improve the online lag anyway - Static IP on the router, Open NAT, port forwarding, and even using the wire for the controller instead of doing wireless.

Here is a direct comparison I did when I owned both sets

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1490539/heads-up-comparison-65-s64-vs-60-st60-ask-me-questions

I am 100% happy with my ST60, there is a bit of lag but not anything that would impact gameplay unless you are a HARDCORE gamer.
