I can at least confirm the first half of this statement. I measured right around 80ms on my x35. I find it completely playable for most games though. the ones I have the most issue with are Kinect games, and well, standing up in front of the screen kind of ruins those anyway, haha. obviously your sensitivity/skill and type of games will play a big role in this. I play FPS all the time with no issues, but I'm also the guy that ends up with a 1/15 K/D ratio if I play online.
the lack of any type of 'game mode' really kills it for the jvc's. it'd be nice to at least have the choice to 'ruin' the image a bit in order to drop down to under 40ms of lag. I do that with my F8500, which has about 120ms normally. it's a decent hit in PQ, but for gaming it's worth it.
anyway, you may be better off looking at the sony hw55. I believe it has more reasonable lag times. or you could also budget in a second projector JUST for fast gaming. I think the 1070 is under 20ms. that only really makes sense if you'll do a lot of movie watching to justify the jvc in the first place though. for a pure gaming projector, I'd be curious what kind of input lag something like the cine 1000 has. hard to argue with that kind of picture quality AND an LED light source if the lag is reasonable
